Pagan Eye: Some Presents I Got for Yule
I hope you had a lovely Yule holiday - I certainly did. I spent a wonderful few days with family and friends, eating too much, drinking, playing games and getting some great presents. The photo above shows a few of the things I was given as well as some of the cards I received.
The thing I'm most looking forward to trying out is the Cup of Destinyfor tea-leaf reading. I've had a go at reading tea-leaves the old-fashioned way, just by looking at the shapes formed by the dregs in the bottom of an ordinary cup, but not found it easy. Hopefully this specially marked cup will make tea-leaf reading much simpler.
I was also delighted to get the Lover's Path Tarot,which I had wanted ever since I read the beautiful book called The Lover's Path. Another thing I'd wanted for some time was Ronald Hutton's Witches, Druids and King Arthur.Although I've got a copy of The Triumph of the Moon,which is essential reading for any modern pagan witch, and also read Stations of the Sunand Pagan Britain, I've not yet read Witches, Druids and King Arthur, even though it has been out for a few years.
Another present I got was a little map called Untamed London: Where Nature Still Runs Wild in the Big City.It promises to be a guide to some of London's quiet, restful and unusual natural havens and will hopefully inspire some lovely days out in the new year.
If you got an unusual present or two, do leave a comment below or even photograph it and send the picture to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
My Pagan Eye posts show photos that I find interesting - seasonal images, pagan sites, events, or just pretty pictures. If you want to send me a photo for a Pagan Eye post, please email it to email@example.com Let me know what the photo shows and whether you want your name mentioned or not. For copyright reasons, the photo must be one you have taken yourself.
