This is a weather ward that is to be used once a storm is very close. It does not attempt to steer the storm away, rather it works to create a calmer microclimate around your home or business. I am a great believer in keeping weather workings as local as possible in most cases.
This post started as notes in preparation for a talk I was planning for the seers group in my tradition. I decided to share it with some modifications to make it more broadly applicable. The following points are offered to encourage mindfulness and dialogue regarding the ethics and best practices for divination, oracular work, and allied disciplines. They do not cover all possible situations and differences in applications or doctrines, so change and adapt what is here to match your needs. I think that it is important for your sake and the sake of those lives that you touch to be clear on your ethical guidelines if you offer readings or oracular sessions of any kind. If you do not agree with any or all of these suggestions, I hope you will work to create your own or consider these a template that you can adjust.
The primary source of heat in our home is our wood stove, and is an important part of my spiritual practice during the cold months of the year. This winter about half of the wood that we are using comes from our land and the rest has been purchased from someone in our county. The fuel we use is local and from the soil of our bioregion. I have a good sense of how long it took for the trees to grow, and the weather and water that fed their growth. Relying upon the wood stove focuses my awareness, gratitude, and mindfulness in many ways. We do have a modern heating system as a backup plan, but its biggest purpose is to keep the house warm when we are all away on a trip.

When I think of “genius” in terms of occultism, Ivo Dominguez Jr. is usually the very first to come into my mind. Part researcher, part mad scientist and complete magickal genius, Ivo is consistently providing information and techniques that push boundaries in terms of innovation within witchcraft, occultism, and psychic development. He and his work are greatly admired by his peers, students, and readers within the occult community for these reasons. Casting Sacred Space: The Core of All Magickal Work is absolutely no exception. The book contains a foreword from T. Thorn Coyle and received high praise from Dolores Ashcroft-Nowicki, Janet Farrar, Jason Miller, M. Macha Nightmare, Sam Webster, and many more — and for good reason.

If this is the very first book of Astrology you pick up, you can consider yourself lucky indeed. Seriously, if you’ve been avoiding Astrology the same way you avoided calculus (like the plague) this may be the book for you!
IVO DOMINGUEZ JR Ivo is probably the hardest working Pagan teacher I know. He goes to more festivals and does more workshops than practically anybody. He’s everywhere, and for good reason, he’s a a great teacher and an even better person. And there’s also that New Alexandrian Library project he’s a major part of. Ivo is amazing.
