What Will Provide Mulch, What To Sow…

Wings of Change Lenormand altar and spreadOkay, I know the Winter Solstice was last week, but I drew these Lenormand cards on the solstice (the 22nd), and already had my other posts for the week ready to go.  After all, there was a lot to do, with family coming over and so on!

The cards are from the Wings of Change Lenormand (McCracken & Arena, 2015).  Around the outside are the four Elemental cards, defining the quarters and creating sacred space (East – Air, South – Fire, West – Water, and North – Earth).  Inside, two lines of three, one for what will provide mulch (material (such as decaying leaves, bark, or compost) spread around or over a plant to enrich or insulate the soil) over the next six months, and the other for the seed planted to grow for the next six months.

Wings of Change Lenormand Mulch

Mulch – Garden, Dog, Scythe

A faithful community, and being faithful to that community, brings a harvest.  This is what will now enrich the soil of my life, without being the primary focus.  A message here not to spend too long on social media, and especially not on worrying whether my “social engagement” is sufficient.  I’ve been reading some business gurus recently who say you should send out 5 newsletters a week!  Not happening any time soon here…  If you would like to receive my (normally) weekly newsletter, though, here’s the link 🙂

Wings of Change Lenormand Seed

Seed – Bear, Woman, Stars

Intuitive, nurturing dietary guidance, through clarity and a clearly defined strategy.  Yes, as with the Tarot Magic for a Healthy Weight webinars I ran earlier this year, this is a subject I feel truly passionate about.  This is where I want my focus to go: helping other people to find the best way forward so they can achieve and maintain a healthy, desirable weight, in ways that suit them as an individul.  This is the seed I shall sow with my Magical Life Coaching for the next six months.

  • Heavens to Betsy – five newsletters a week feels more like spam than anything else! My guess is that that fellow isn’t actually talking to the people whose mailboxes get stuffed with such (in my opinion) advertisements. I think your newsletter is perfect as is, and I always look forward to what you have to say. 🙂

    • Thank you, Bev, that means a lot! I’m glad you enjoy the newsletter as is. Everyone likes different things, but I agree with you. I like newsletters that share a bit personally, and provide some interesting links to check out, so that’s what I try to do 🙂 Hope you had a lovely, restful weekend after the chaos of Christmas! 🙂

  • The greatest newsletter (called The Painters Keys) I ever got was produced twice weekly by Canadian artist Robert Genn and went around the world. He died of cancer in May 2014 and his daughter carries on the newsletter with her own writing interspersed with some of his writing from past letters. I don’t know how he managed to pull off doing it twice a week but he did for 15 years. It’s very good and they use questions and comments by subscribers so there is discussion and feedback.

    There was magic in that, partly because of his passion for the subject, but partly because he kept it fresh, it definitely wasn’t (and isn’t) spam. I wrote to a couple of tarot authors once and they continually spammed me with “buy, buy, buy” promotions. I deeply resented it, and actually discarded a deck and book set from one of them, and have refused to buy anything by the other guy, or read the blog of the third man. No one asked my permission they simply started spamming me. It’s not ethical, but most of all in a world of possibility and learning, these chaps were just not interesting.

    The Painters Keys always has links and things to expand your knowledge. This sort of thing is vital, and I don’t mean links like some blogs do where they cut and paste and then don’t say anything else. You have to bring yourself to it, which you do. It’s like any other writing: your experience and knowledge, your passion and interest in varied things, is what makes a newsletter interesting.

    Your blog is interesting, your newsletter is interesting. Hmmm, I thought I had signed up for it a long time ago, I must sign up again!

    • Hope you will enjoy my newsletter, JJ, even if I can’t rival the Painters Keys 🙂 And if it ever feels spammy, please let me know!

  • This reminds me of how silly the number of followers on IG is. So many models and shops are among them that I hardly know who is real anymore
    The quality of what you put out is much more important than the quantity. Just do what feels good and all will be well my friend

    • Thanks, Ellen. Yes, that’s a reason I don’t go on Twitter anymore – it just got overwhelming, without a personal connection. I haven’t got to that point with IG yet, and hope I never do 🙂

  • I guess I can see how more exposure could be helpful, but I’ve seen SO many people just give up entirely on their businesses because the online/social marketing aspect was just too overwhelming! If something becomes stifling like that then I say it isn’t worth doing. I love your newsletter! XOXOX, MM

    • Yes, it’s tough. There’s so much information out there about what you “should and shouldn’t do”. On the one hand, I want to keep the friendly feeling blogging has always had for me. On the other hand, I don’t think marketing necessarily has to go against that – you and I have bought enough stuff from each other over the years 😀 Hugs, Cxx
