A preview of what I am working on: some of you may already have spotted the 3rd edition of my plant inspired sigil card set on the website. I am doing alltogether 15 boxes for the Autumn Equinox, 5 of which have already been sold. The difference between this edition and the former is none but the wrapping paper on the slip-case, which is a beautiful black to green peacock marble paper. The content remains the same:
All cards are hand-numbered on the back. With the help of a list you find the name of the corresponding herb for each card. There is no prescribed method of laying the cards. Possible ways of interpreting and laying them are outlined in the introduction that comes with each set.
The first time I presented these sigil cards to a live audience was at the London Magical Arte event in March 2014. The cards were passed around, single motifs were discussed and became the basis for inspired conversation. At the time I had only printed the cards but not yet made a nice packaging for them. Later I made slipcases with paper from my local bookbinder. Thus far two smaller editions have been done for the Spring Equinox and Summer Solstice, now followed by this 3rd edition of 15 for the Autumn Equinox.
Price: still 31 Euro + shipping
Offcial sale date is September 22, but I am already taking pre-orders.

Blue Monkshood and Yellow Wolfsbane flowering in August
Yellow Wolfsbane (Aconitum lamarckii) in bloom
Little spidey on Monkshood seed pods. Discovered this later when browsing the photos…
Weaving and webbing with a glass of red vine…and came across this interesting article. It seems spiders weave patterns reflecting ultraviolett light into their webs, which mimic flowers and attract insects with the help of these light frequencies. http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2008/06/080612-spider-webs.html
