The Inevitable Darkness

Halloween and Dias should last at least, at the very least, a whole week.  My favorite time of the year, when we get to accept and laugh at the inevitable darkness.

Winter Sigil


An amulet to help with surviving gloomy, wet days of the Northwest winter:  hazel twigs, cold forged horseshoe nail, operculum, found object, rosary fragment, and a crusty glass spike from Numinosity Beads.  The components provide several layers of magical protection: the twigs act as a guardian, the nail an enhancer of powers, and the operculum, much like an evil eye, provides protection and stability.  Add hot ginger tea, eat your greens and take extra Vitamin D and some hikes, even with umbrella, and you should make it to spring.  I call it "Sigil,"for its powers and calligraphic quality.
