Last night, I dreamed of an angel. You might think that would be disturbing for Daemonolater, but the dream comforted me. You see, I work with this particular angel on a regular basis and number him among what ‘personal pantheon.’ In other words, he’s one of my go-to guys.
Since I found it successful yesterday, I started my work with a Tarot reading again today. This time, I asked Sitri if a specific endeavor would reawaken my passion for writing. She responded with the Star. This card is a symbol of hope for me. It also represents the goals we strive to attain, and that we need to keep our spirits up when they seem beyond our reach. The Star means inspiration, rejuvenation, and a new burst of energy. If felt extremely comforted by her answer.
I created a picture for Sitri in thanks. Pastels are a new medium for me—and a challenging one. I is difficult for me to depict the kind of detail I want with them. Even so, this is the first piece I have felt truly happy with in as long as I can remember. I wanted to capture the joy I felt dancing with her yesterday as well as the meaning of the card I’d turned over today, the Star. I think I did that.
While I drew, I repeated Sitri’s enn in my mind. I may or may not get around to working with the Five Warrior Syllables today. The rest of my day is slated as family time, and I mean to enjoy it thoroughly. May the Star of Hope light your way!
I started to my Domagic work differently than usual today, with a Tarot reading. I’ve been struggling to feel enthusiastic about a particular writing commitment, so I asked Sitri what I could do to feel passionate about the project again. I turned over the Six of Cups. This card could mean something I dreamed about for years is about to materialize. It could also indicate that I should seek help from a trusted source. Since I’m not sure what to dream the card could be referring to, I decided to ask Sitri’s help with the project instead.
I started today off with a visit to a trusted advisor and laid out what’s been going on in my life since the Domagick Challenge began. I talked about how it has made me think again about going back to school, as well as how my diverse interests and skill sets could lead me in a variety of different directions. Concentrating on just one of them feels impossible, thus my frustration and restlessness. I feel like I need to do something but I can’t figure out what that is.
Insomnia plagued me last night, and since I need to get some writing done tonight I decided to take it easy on the Domagick front today. I concentrated on connecting with the demon Sitri through art, getting my first impressions of her down in watercolor and ink portrait. I typically use watercolor pencils rather than watercolors proper and found these demanded I worked much more quickly. Because I could erase them either, the paints also demanded I commit to any line I made immediately since I couldn’t take it back. That was somehow constrictive and freeing at the same time. I’m not entirely happy with the piece but then again I never am. I am pleased with the look on Sitri’s face, though. I think I managed to capture the expression of a demon of passion very well.
My cat now runs to jump into my lap every time I chant the Five Warrior Syllables. Today he threw his paws around my neck and started drooling with happiness as soon as I started chanting. I couldn’t help but laugh. The collar of my shirt got a shower!
