Quick and Simple Spells

Maybe we have not the energy or psychic resources to complete something complex. Maybe we cannot wait for the full moon. Maybe we need something in the moment. Simple spells can give us a boost or help us through trying moments.

Ease Anxiety
With a small object in your hand (exempli gratia: a pen, a small stone, a charm, an eraser). Run your thumb lightly over the surface of the object either away from you or in a diurnal (anti-clockwise) motion. Repeat slowly in your mind calma anois síos (now calm down).


Confidence Boost
Using your compact or standing in front of the mirror say the following three times: Tá mé neart (I am strength).


Beauty Charm
Hold a necklace, ring, earrings, or bracelet you can comfortably wear in your left hand and place your right hand over them. Repeat three times: áilleacht agus cairde (beauty and grace). Move through your day with confidence.


Notes
If you have trouble pronouncing the Irish, the English will work just as well.

Timelessly Beautiful Pictures of Niall Horan

Sometimes, pictures of Niall Horan are so beautiful, they’re timeless. Here are some examples of that! Compiled and captioned with my best friend, @100percentsassy.

Andy Warhol’s cousin and longtime assistant, Niall Horan, seen here in a quick test shot taken by Jack Mitchell in 1968. (x)

Comedian Niall Horan, seconds before being asked to the couch on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, 1990. (x)

Sky, Water and Earth (stone)

Druid lore contains an elemental system of its own: a set of three elements, sky, water and earth (or stone).
According to Druid philosophy, everything in the universe is made up of these three elements in some combination, with one being dominant.

Hello again! Sorry I’ve been a bit inactive as of late, but I’ve got some cool things cooking!

I’m designing a series of irish dance solo dresses based on my favorite characters from all types of media. I used to be a competitive irish dancer myself, and although I don’t dance these days; I still love the sport.

I’m starting the series off with a Ms. Marvel inspired solo dress!

More to come soon!

SOOOO!  I guess this is a day late, oops! 

Trying to find ways to do little drawings for each holiday here, and I like coming up with ways to relate it to the characters, but… sometimes it’s a stretch.  Jonathan and Sock go see Irish Stew, I guess, whatever, pretend it makes sense.  This is what you get! 

Happy St. Patrick’s day!

Listen here. It’s all well and good, Domhnall Gleeson narrating 3 nature documentaries in all his Irish accented glory. But you know what? People have work to do. I’m busy, dammit!

Caterpillars, sugary sap, sap suckers, weeping liquid, scupper, pumping! How is anything meant to get done with this kind of shit going down? I ask you.
