What's your favorite podcast right now?⁠

Personally, I love anything witchy, sci-fi, or book-related. I find a lot of great podcasts on the Ackerly Green forum. ⁠

My new favorite was suggested by someone in our community. It's from newworldwitchery.com, and it has all things to do with witchery! 🔮 From recipes, spells, storytelling, magic, and history! ⁠

This is my hanging 'bookshelf'! It's so out of the ordinary (which means it's perfect for me! ✨) It's one of those pieces in my home that creates instant conversation. ⁠

These are also my favorite book spine designs. We don't get too much sun here in the PNW. The gold decals reflect the light beautifully, and it makes a sunny day in Portland even more special!⁠

I'm so excited to show you our new pins being released this week! ⁠🗝⁠

Each pin represents a guild within the Briarverse. Which one do you relate to this most?⁠

1. Flinterforge - You like to work with your hands. You're probably very clever, and extremely hard-working. ⁠

2. Gossmere - You live in this moment, the dance of life. You are a healer and need to feel like you're helping your community. ⁠

3. Ebenguard - You’ve always felt an innate sense of right and wrong. You have several potentials. You could be an advocate, an artist that inspires, or someone who believes in noble causes.⁠

4. Balimora - You have a love for nature and deeper truth. You are your happiest exploring. You are the world-shaper.⁠

5. Weatherwatch - You are undoubtedly spontaneous. Your sharp tongue might land you in a scrape, but you’ll never fear plunging back into the fray. ⁠

6. Thornmouth - Some may see you as cold, but you are actually very wise. People often look to you for knowledge.

Who wants guild pins?! ⁠🗝⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Just look at them! Swipe to see them all!⁠⁠
⁠⁠
In case you didn't know, each pin represents one of six magimystic guilds within the Briarverse; the torch and telescope of Weatherwatch, the lotus of Gossmere, the furnace hand of Flinterforge, the bated bow of Ebenguard, the burning lantern of Thornmouth, and the entwined trees of Balimora.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
They're 1.5 inches tall in antique bronze, with beautiful light and dark patina, and each pin has two security pins on the back so it's not going anywhere you don't want it to!⁠⁠
⁠⁠
What do you think your guild might be? Tap the link in my bio to find out! ⁠⁠

Have you heard of a Protection Skull Spell Bottle? ⁠✨⁠

It's a spell that will protect yourself, your home, or other people. All you need is oil and herbs, a court card from a tarot deck to represent who/what will be protected, and wax to seal the bottle. ⁠

and of course, incense to protect the bottle. ⁠

I've always found paganism, witchcraft, and spells interesting because the power is within yourself to manifest your intentions. 🔮 Although, I hardly use my go-to oracle deck since I'm still on the lookout for an oracle deck from a small business or artist. (vote with my wallet!)⁠

Anyone else in disbelief that we're almost halfway through 2021? ⁠

I dedicated 2021 to working on myself. I’ve never in my life really focused on me, my safety, my health, my overall well-being. It’s been rewarding to explore that, and I want to continue giving that a shot in 2021 because it’s been nice.⁠

If you're ever feeling down, we have a thread on the Ackerly Green Forum dedicated to Self-Care. ⁠

It's a support pod for those wanting to vent their thoughts, share tips, talk about their progress or worries. We are all in this together. ⁠

This year’s chapter of the Briar Society story features the history of an infamous character from The Monarch Papers... the Cagliostro.⁠

This is a relic of his final performance, a scale model of the⁠ artifact “The Complete Translation.”⁠

Creating a standalone book about Cagliostro was well discussed in the Ackerly Green Forum. ⁠

& for good reason too. Readers felt especially close to Cagliostro and Lauren! Plus, there's so much to explore with such an ancient character.⁠

I'm very excited for you to read this year's chapter. It is definitely worth the wait!

Did you know Moldavite has a rich history of occultic lore?⁠ ⁠

It's the gemstone that fell from the sky and is not from this world 🌎⁠

Moldavite has been a popular topic among pagans and witches recently. Many say it cleanses your life almost immediately. ⁠

Usually, people experience the 'negative' side effects of holding this glass, like losing a relationship, being fired, or being pushed to a different direction in their life. ⁠

What I find the most interesting though is the theory that the Holy Grail was made of moldavite. The theory is that the emerald that fell from the crown of Lucifer bears a striking resemblance to moldavite. This emerald was a part of the holy grail.⁠

When the holy grail was found and given to Napoleon, he found it was just a chunk of green glass. Which is exactly what moldavite is. ⁠

Of course, that's just a theory! Would you ever wear a moldavite necklace?

I have a BIG announcement that I think new and old Mounties will LOVE 💜✨⁠

We are overhauling & improving the Guilds categories! ⁠

I know a lot of new Mounties want to explore their guild while meeting their fellow guildmates, and established Mounties want to continue exploring their guilds in NEW ways.⁠

So I'm going to revitalize old guild topics, create NEW topics, and draft posts that offer more guidance for newbies and veterans alike! 🗝⁠

(Feel free to comment topics you would like to see!)⁠

Next, we are introducing a monthly event called the Guild Induction Ceremony where Mounties, both new and old, can officially join their guild in a magical ceremony here on the forum!⁠

🔮 You can join other members in a secret area of the forum, agree to upload certain tenets, and experience some magimystic fun as you're officially welcomed by fellow guildmates!⁠

& Lastly, NEW guild pins! I finally bit the bullet and had new guild pins manufactured in the same antique brass style as the other pins on the book shop! I’ve been dying to reveal them 💜⁠

Five years, six books, countless stories, endless wonder ✨🗝⁠

I can't believe the day has come. We have an actual digital book box set! I still remember the first couple of months of writing Book 1 of the Briar Archive. I never could have imagined that I would have such a loyal community of readers surrounding the Briar Archive. ⁠

Our community shaped the book series for what it is today & I am eternally grateful for this amazing journey with all of you. My inner child is ecstatic right now! ⁠

I created Beltane to embody spring, the beginning of summer, and the beautiful scents of earth. ⁠🌱⁠

Beltane is a part of the Wheel of the Year and is a festival held to celebrate the spring equinox and the upcoming summer solstice!⁠ ⁠

It is one of four festivals I'm creating candles for to celebrate the year. Most people hold rituals where they burn candles, have a bonfire, and drink honey wine. ⁠

This handmade candle is Summer Born in Spring with scents like moss, spring leaves, fig, jasmine, saffron, geranium, and wood.

Close your eyes and imagine a very old wax-sealed letter.⁠

Was the color of the wax seal RED? ⁠

That's because it's the most popular wax seal color, and vermillion (red pigment) was the most prevalent colorant, dating back to ancient times.⁠

Personally, I prefer purple, teal... and of course black.⁠

I love wax seals because of the process, the ritual of making one, and there's also a level of excitement to receiving one in the mail. We are all aware it's an outdated mode of sealing letters, yet it is that distinguishing mark of a bygone era that makes them so magical ✨💜⁠

Are you a fan of wax seals? 👇

The witch's castle in Portland Oregon has a very interesting, and dark history behind it 🏰 ⁠

In the mid-1800s Danford Balch bought a large plot of land and hired Mortimer Stump to clear the area. ⁠

Stump and Balch's daughter fell in love, but when Stump asked for his daughter's hand in marriage, Balch refused. ⁠

They didn't care though. They eloped anyway. When Balch found out he became deeply depressed, which led to heavy drinking. ⁠

When the newlywed couple returned to Portland, Balch remedied the situation by killing Stump with a double-barreled shotgun. He was quickly arrested but escaped jail soon after.⁠

Which then led to the first legal execution in Oregon! ⁠

Eventually, the property landed in the hands of Portland's Park and Recreation. It was heavily damaged in a storm in the 1960s, moss-covered the walls, and teenagers graffitied the sides of the structure. ⁠

The witch's castle is one of my favorite places to hike to because of the magic of decay, wonder, and the spooky vibes still lingering there. ✨ Portland is full of enchantment, it's one of the many reasons why I moved here from NY. There's inspiration everywhere you look.

This is not photo manipulation, that's an actual darkly magical alley living in my office bookshelf 🗝📗⁠

Right between my Victor Hugo collections.⁠

I specifically chose Victor Hugo's books because they inspired me with my own writings. One of his famous quotes, "There is nothing like a dream to create the future" has stuck with me for years. ⁠

It's somewhat similar to my quote from The Monarch Papers: Flora & Fauna, "Imagination is nothing more than memory transposed."⁠

I like to think this little dark magical alley is a glimpse into another world or a physical manifestation of the Briarverse. ⁠
What's the most interesting thing on your bookshelf? ✨
