Or: What You Already Knew, You Knucklehead.
One thing that struck me about Twilight Covening this year was the amount of divination involved. I had my Kahina Stones with me and did a couple of readings for myself. There was a clan activity which involved single-card tarot and Stone draws (good practice for me). Tarot cards were, as ever, offered after the Visioning Ritual. Finally, there was the rune reading I received after the Ritual.
It was the most I’ve ever dealt with divination. Everything that came up was, of course, just telling me what I already knew.
I expected the Stones to be that way. They know me, after all, and Tamalut won’t let them deceive me.
During the clan card pull, I got the Moon. Intuition and imagination. Surprise! (Or not.)
The card I received after the Visioning Ritual was the six of cups. Unexpected blessings.
The rune reading I got from Jane, who is very, very matter of fact. It was three – past, present, future. Past came up gorgeous, fruitful and wonderful. Present came up as something I’m ignoring; to quote Jane, “And you know damn well what it is.” The future? Fine, as long as I get the thing I’m ignoring taken care of by Feast of Lights in February; the 2nd happens to be a hard-and-fast deadline for The Conundrum.
I’m not surprised or bothered; I’m comforted. I’m going the right direction. I know the Work I have ahead of me. I’m Hearing correctly. So off I go.
