  1. The picture is of my altar. I keep it in a trunk because my fiance's family are super Christian and they're constantly on my case about how the "Satanism is ruining" my soul and that I'm "going to burn in Hell because I won't be forgiven"... Blah, blah, blah.... :P This is the easiest way to hide it quickly :D (Plus I just think the trunk is cool!)

  2. Divination is not a strong point for me, but I know enough to recognize a fantastic resource when I see one. Is this Aswynn, or a combination of sources, or your own?

  3. The information is taken from my notes when I read her book! I don't know why I didn't mention that when I posted this blog! Silly me! :P
