Ritual Incense, Journals & Events | Issue #98

Thanks to everyone who made it to the Psychic Tarot Talk & Book Signing, in spite of the near blizzard conditions upon us at the time. We were impressed. 

We have plenty of New Items to chose from in our store and on our website. Books, blank and otherwise, seem to dominate as we head into March . . . must be our way of dealing with cabin fever. View the latest new items.

In this issue, we are highlighting a couple of new categories: our Alchemical Ritual Incense Blends and Handmade Leather Journals, as well as a couple of new workshops. We highlight our bestselling Tarot Books and one of the decks, including an article by the creator of that deck. We also have an article by our own Chuck Boe, who answers the question What is Reiki?
Last, but hardly least, we give you the news about Nordic Roots Day here at the Eye in March.

Alchemical Ritual Incense
Nine Magickal Blends

Ritual Incense Blends
Many of us who burn incense know how calming, awakening or enlightening it can be when used as part of a personal ritual, or in a group setting.

But for a while at the Eye, we've wanted to be able to offer an incense as powerful as some of our candles. Now we can. We have discovered a Master Herbalist, trained Alchemist and Ritual Artist who has created astounding specialty blends of herbal incenses.  These aren't the faux "entertainment" incenses you find on campus. You don't smoke these.  No, these are carefully blended works of a master who makes them specifically for spiritual work.

This is traditional loose incense which requires a bowl or censer and an incense charcoal tablet to burn.


These ritual incense blends use the finest herbs, woods, resins and essential oils. Each incense is blended and charged during the appropriate lunar phases and astrological correspondences to enhance the potency and heighten awareness. All of the blends are designed to metaphysically awaken to their purpose during use, to then elevate and enliven the senses of the ritualist, and thus serve as a direct link to the inherent energies it embodies.

Handmade Leather Journals
For those who love the Old Ways

Handmade Leather Journals
Vintage, old world craftsmanship and consistent quality become more precious as time marches on.  These handmade and hand bound journals are meant to take us back to a time when things were not mass produced-to a time when value was placed on how much skill and effort was required to produce a truly unique item.

Perfect for a personal journal, or to create your own family or craft tradition heirloom, detailing your seasonal celebrations, recipes, quotable moments, and magickal workings.

These amazing journals are available in several different formats, and we have six currently in stock.  The picture abovve shows the Entangled Dragons and Gaia Earth Mother Journal. At left, you see a handmade archival scroll made exactly the way they made them 1,000 years ago.

You can see, touch and feel the quality of each journal with the turn of every page. It's a personal and lasting experience of texture and senses which will ignite your creativity and invite you to try new mediums and explore your inner and outer world, knowing the record you keep will last for generations.

What is Reiki?
by Chuck Boe, Reiki Master

Reiki is a system of natural energy healing.  The word is Japanese for Universal Life Force Energy.  A Reiki practitioner acts as a conduit for the life force energy and directs it into the body of the person receiving a treatment.  The practitioner does not use their own energy to do Reiki healing work.  Reiki is used to promote healing on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of our lives.  The person receiving a treatment will feel a sense of warmth, relaxation and a balancing of their energy and chakras. 

Historical Reiki originated in the time of the Buddha.  The Buddha did healings throughout his life and ministry much the same as the healing stories of Jesus.  Dr. Mikao Usui, the founder of modern Reiki, based this healing system on Sanskrit literature written by the disciples of Buddha instructing them on how to heal others and themselves.  There were three great Reiki Masters in the development of this system of natural healing.

Nordic Roots Day
Hosted by Kari Tauring

We invite you to a day of exploration, performance, and good folk coming together for a common purpose-to explore their Nordic Roots. In our modern quest for spiritual enlightenment and connection, many people are finding their way back to the deep root traditions of their own cultural heritage, mending and healing the broken traditions of their own ancestral folk ways.


Perhaps you are curious about Nordic roots spirituality, perhaps you have been practicing your ancestral traditions and are looking for others to connect with, or perhaps you teach a specific pathway of Norse tradition such as Asatru or Heathenry- this is a day for you!


What: Nordic Roots Day
Where: Eye of Horus Metaphysical
When: March 20, 2011
Scheduled Events: Open House from 2-7 pm

Shadowscapes Artist Notes 

by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law 


During the creation of Shadowscapes Tarot, the Major Arcana was easy to create, in terms of imagery and motivation. The archetypes of the Majors are enticing to any artist, imbued as they are with the collective subconscious of meaning, and familiar to even those who know little or nothing of Tarot. "Death," "The Tower," "The Empress"...each of these conjures a host of ready visual associations and metaphors just from hearing the name alone.


The Minor Arcana was much harder. A number and a suit: how to create meaning from something that seems random? How to motivate myself artistically to not hold back, but to pour everything I have within me into each card? It would be a shame to have created a body of work I was proud of in the Major Arcana, and then to fall short when coming to the rest of the deck.

New Astrology Classes


Tarot & Astrology Class

March 19th (Saturday)


For centuries, the art of tarot and the study of astrology have been closely tied. Most tarot readers, however, don't know the astrological foundation of the deck - and most astrologers don't know how seamlessly their knowledge can transfer to the cards.

In this workshop, you'll discover the close connections between tarot and astrology, card by card. What's more, you'll learn how to combine the two systems into a single, integrated whole.

"If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to,
no one with which to share the beauty of the stars,
to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life?
It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning.
This is harmony.
We must discover the joy of each other,
the joy of challenge, the joy of growth." ~Mitsugi Saotome
