This week I changed my user-name on Facebook, dropping the Wiccan title, so that my FB user-name is the same name being used on my books (Amythyst Raine). I thought it would make it easier for people to find me. I also changed the name on the url to my Facebook page before I realized that it would break the link everywhere I might have it posted-- oops! So I've been trying to make the internet rounds and correct this, but I'm sure I've missed some links... My new FB url is: http://www.facebook.com/amythystraine
I'm working on my December newsletter, and this newsletter will be my last one. Because of other writing obligations, I'll be discontinuing The Witch's Corner newsletters indefinitely. This blog has become so successful (Magickal Connections), that I will be using this spot for updates, stories, inspiration, networking, promoting, and otherwise shooting the breeze. The links to all my newsletters, including the older archives, can be found in the sidebar (right side) on the home-page of The Witch's Corner. Churning out newsletters on a regualr basis, first monthly and later on quarterly, has been an experience in determination and perseverance!
For anyone who might not have heard the news, my next book is on the way! "The Gray Witch's Grimore" was accepted for publication by Moon Books, an imprint of John Hunt Publishing. Production is expected to take approximately six months. I'll be posting updates, including cover art and release dates, as this information becomes available. I'm thrilled!-- this project is one that is close to my heart. It is, in essence, my own brand of magickal practice.

I drew the following card specifically for myself...but this doesn't mean that it won't apply itself to other individuals who come upon this post...
Tarot Card of the Day: Ace of Cups...reversed. This card, when appearing
It's best to remember that people often come into our lives for a season, at a time that we are meant to connect with them to share and learn and grow. But there might come a point when it's time to move on, when the lessons are learned and all that's meant to be shared has been. It is a natural progression of the seasons.
I have been thinking about giving local tarot readings by appointment only. The main issue I have here is that I'm not sure I would want to open my home up to total strangers. The fix to this issue would seem to be simple-- find another venue. I was thinking that I could simply meet a client for coffee somewhere, but I'm not sure that just any establishment would allow a customer to spread tarot cards on the table and give readings-- although personally I would consider this a private conversation between two individuals, not every restaurant or coffee shop owner might look at it this way. I have a couple of people that I have to talk to, owners of coffee spots here in town, and I'm going to see how they would feel about having a tarot reader and a client enjoying a cup of coffee at their establishment. If I find the ideal spot to hold tarot pow-wows, you'll see my advertisement in the local paper. Stay tuned.
Dreams...I only remember a snippet: I'm on the phone, talking to someone on the east coast from the Scifi program, TAPS. In my dream I've been invited to be a guest on the program for an episode. The thing is that I will have to fly on a commercial aircraft in order to be there on time for taping. I actually felt the sinking feeling in my stomach at this thought-- even though I was only dreaming. The last part of this dream that I remember, I am reluctantly asking someone over the phone, "Isn't there any other way to get there?"
And this is what happens when you watch a whole day of TAPS reruns on Scifi.
I've received an increased number of phone calls from people this week with questions, requests, and all kinds of things. I have to say that most of you must have paid attention to those 'guidelines' for contacting me, which I posted to this blog. Almost everyone identified themselves, and they were all very polite, and no one called at the crack of dawn or at the witching hour...thank you!
