Know Thyself – with Numerology

Mathematics is the language of the universe but how do numbers affect us? Join Fera for a discussion on numbers and what we can learn about ourselves by calculating the numbers of our lives.

Learn about several Numerological methods, the meanings of each number, and the different numbers that are attached to you.

You’ll also receive a packet with several blank charts so you can plot your own numbers and begin the numerological adventure of your lifetime.

Come prepared to learn more about yourself and your relationship with numbers!

PPET Monthly Meet & Greet

Katie will be going over the origins of the Gris Gris bag, how to make them, and then afterward there will be a station to allow a few people at a time to make Gris Gris bags to take home. If participants have a stone, coin, or other small significant items they would like to put in their bag I encourage them to bring it. Herbs, fabric, and moon water will be provided.

Manifesting Your Will with Chaos Magick.

Chaos Magick is sometimes overlooked by today’s modern day occultists, due to its simplicity and nontraditional approach. In a nutshell, an emphasis on simplification + flexible beliefs + emotional fransmutation results, which is Chaos Magick. Learn how Chaos Magick is used to reorder your reality and begin to live the life that you want. If you’ve been looking to get involved with magick, or, you’re just looking to add something new to your already existing practices then this is a fast and reasonably easy way. Chaos Magick doesn’t rely on anointing candles, burning incense, collecting chalices, wands or a host of other paraphernalia. Most rituals only require a Sigil, your desire and a small amount of time.

Do you have imagination? Are you good at pretending? Can you be playful? Can you access your feelings? Do you have willpower and a desire to recreate your reality? Then you can perform Chaos Magick.

Bonus: attendees will receive materials to make a Magickal Cashbook, along with instructions on it’s use. This booklet combines elements of Chaos Magick, and can be used effectively by anyone. Truly a great tool to have, especially those that practice Financial magick.
