My Medieval Name

Ok I saw that someone wanted to get to a medieval word generator and found this site, so I thought– cool, that’s random.  Which is pretty neato because I have always been into medieval things– so much so that my undergrad degree is in medieval/renaissance studies (italian if you must know).  However, I have a…

Astrology can be random too…

And you know what I mean because it is much harder to be on the mark with a daily/weekly forecast for the millions of people born within the month of a sun-sign.  I am not a true follower of astrology but I do know that the moon and rising signs in combination with the sun-sign…

There are no accidents, part II

Today’s daily draw was part of a non-accident. In other words, I was planning to come home from work today and find a system that I use for divination and pick a card, or throw a rune and see what came up. But instead, I went to an after work appointment with my awesome yoga…

What’s really random?

I think many people often question/challenge the randomness of our universe. Consider the plethora of quizzes on Facebook (and other sites) that ask a few multiple choice questions to match you to some actor, idea, power animal, author…yada, yada. Always trying to see– Random? Or Perfect fit? 10 questions that the 17 year old  just…

Celtic Random

I will spare you the details on the history of St. Patrick’s Day.  Though I am super tempted to do it. 😉 For tonight’s random magic, I will be pulling from a Celtic Tarot in honor of the holiday.  One thing I have to say about this deck is that it has always been a…

Word Generator

Ok, so I am too tired and down today to whip out my divination sets for a go at random magic tonight.  Instead I googled “random” and skimmed through some interesting sites.  There were two that intrigued me the most– one of them being a random word generator.  As soon as you get to the…

Fortune Cookie Magic

Fortune cookies are random magic.   [note to readers: former history teacher is going to give some background information now– skip the next paragraph if you are not interested.] What is interesting about the fortune cookie (as we know it) is that it is 100% American based on a JAPANESE tradition and cookie, yet it is…

Double Shot

Here is another dose of divination for the day.  This time based on RHAPSODOMANCY, or some method by which a passage in poetry is chosen and then meaning/prediction derived from it. Yes, folks it is ancient…yes, that is a big reason why I might like it…and the second being that I love words and am…

(not so) random links

In an effort to keep building this blog, I am currently adding links and other goodies.  I am adding links in the right column for exploration purposes.  Some of them are generators of the random kind and others are just great links for divination and/or any other kind of random thing that moves me.  Feel…

Daily Draw: Un-Tarot

There are systems that are card-based, but not Tarot.  Witness the many decks created by self-help authors like Louise Hay or Don Miguel Ruiz.  All decks are based on the idea of the “spread” or an order of cards that when put together can be interpreted to say something.  Most of the self-help and other…

Daily Draw– just missed that asteroid!

So I read on a blog I follow that earth just missed being hit by an asteroid that passed by 40,000 somethings away. Apparently, 1/8th of the distance to the moon. Eek. But that is just the kind of week we are having on earth…although I should probably only speak of my corner of the…

Purpose

I intend to use this blog as a place to provide random magic for everyone. Random quotes, tarot, I Ching, self-help, etc. Whatever I can randomly choose from my collection and flip through. It is the reader’s job to make meaning (and occasionally I will make my own meaning and post it). Example: I didn’t…
