Welcome to the Weird Shit not Bullshit blog

Well, Hello there… thanks for coming by.

The first post in a new blog is a tricky thing to write – ones feels one should lay out what is to come, leave tempting tit-bits of plans and intentions, give a guide to what can be found here in future.  But actually, that's extremely tricky to do because… well, who knows?  How can one really predict how it's all going to turn out?

But here are some rough intentions – I intend to write a bit about Tarot, and life as a Tarot reader; a bit about magick and life as a magickian; and hopefully a bit about weirdshit topics that have caught my attention.

It would be a depressing prospect to never have your opinions change, to never learn more, to never have understanding beyond what you have today.  I therefore fully expect that at some point I’ll look back on some of the early posts and think ‘bloody hell, why did I think that?’  I'm not terribly good at phrasing opinions in the context of 'this is what I think today' or 'this is the latest experiment in understanding my world' but I will try to remember to point out that all ideas posted here are the product of a fairly small consciousness (on a Universal scale) with limited perception reality at a fairly specific point in space time.  i.e. I want to give myself permission to experiment and be wrong and hope my readers will grant me at the luxury.

Alongside the Tarot stuff I want to write about magick from the perspective of a practicing magickian.  One of the things that frustrates me about the occult community is that people tend not to share enough about what they actually do – and equally important, what happens as a result of what they do.  If we’re going to get better at this stuff, if we’re ever to understand more, we need to increase the information flow.  We need to talk about what we did, why we did it, and what happened as a result.  And an important part of that is sharing failure and frustration as well as success.  So hopefully, if I manage to stick to my principles, you may occasionally see posts along the lines of “I tried to do X, it didn’t work.”  But with luck there'll be a few successes in there too.

So Tarot, magick, weirdshit and…. Well, who knows?  This is just the beginning, and I hope you'll hang around to find out where this all ends up going…
