New Pagan Library in Washington, D.C.

May 5th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

There’s a new library in Washington, D.C., and for the magically inclined, it’s pretty exciting.

In mid-April, the Open Hearth Foundation (OHF) illuminated the stacks for first time at the official launch of their OHF Pagan Library.

It’s one of the first Pagan libraries in the US to make their collection available to the public.

And though it’s brand new, the collection is already significant. They have over 3,000 titles, 250 Tarot decks, and 40 different periodical and newsletter series.

It’s open to the public for browsing on Sundays from 1-5, and books can be borrowed for 28 days. The Tarot cards and periodicals can be used in-house.

And if you’d like to browse before you visit, or just browse for the fun of it, the full catalogue is online.

The library also plans to add public domain eBooks to their collection soon, focusing especially on ceremonial magic, lodge works, and medieval texts.

To find out about library events and OHF book discussions, visit the OHF website. And if you’re in D.C., go visit in person.

Moon in Scorpio – High Priestess in Death’s Clothing

The High Priestess in Death's Clothes

The moon moves into Scorpio today and stays there until Monday.

If you translate this transit into the Tarot, you could say that the High Priestess is dressed as Death. She’s in the midst of a great transformation.

The Moon in Scorpio, or High Priestess in Death’s clothing, suggests a time when feelings run deep. The ability to end relationships that don’t work, or release stagnant emotions is accentuated.

If there’s a situation in your life that’s nearing its completion, especially if it’s emotional or relationship-oriented, this might be a good time to let it go. At least explore it with emotional clarity.

This isn’t a time to be afraid, but rather a time to face your fears with equanimity and intelligence.

You’ve got what it takes. Don’t back down from the scary stuff.

There’s so much to do right now you probably feel you can’t keep up.  Don’t worry -  you can.

Just keep things in motion and try to stay focused on whatever task you’re working on at each particular moment.  You’ve got more than enough energy for everything right now, try not to give up.

Emotionally things might get a little hairy, but as with your work, you’re more than able to cope.

The changes going on in your life right now are good ones. You’ve put them into motion yourself and you’ll be just fine.
