Feathers from the Sacred Ibis, a holy bird and sacred to Thoth/Djehuty and Hermes. This is a sampling of feathers from the batch from my personal collection. These are completely legal to own and possess and do not fall under the MBTA. They are also absolutely gorgeous in person and my phone camera simply doesn’t do them a wink of justice. The black parts of them are iridescent. Like white feather quills dipped in a scribe’s inkpot, some of them with shadows of quicksilver grey. I am in love with these feathers.
(Some I MAY possibly make available for sale in the future. How and who is open to question at this time. More work and divination with them may need to be done first.)
So I went to see ‘The Witch’ today. For those wondering, it was one of the best movies I’d ever seen. I encourage everyone to go see it. It was very well done and well executed. The atmospherics and soundtrack alone were fantastic. I hope to write more on this later when I’m less busy and distracted. But I will say this–I’m definitely voting for Black Phillip for president.
Speaking of witchcraft, a feather from the Sacred Ibis, the holy bird of Thoth/Djehuty and Hermes. Recently received a huge batch of these that I will be working with.
Ironic, as right now I’m rocking House of OrpheusThoth perfume–a scent I received quite a lot of compliments on. More than one person has said this perfume fits me perfectly. I can’t help but fluff my own feathers at that. This batch of feathers, although extremely rare, are 100% legal to own. Unlike most bird feathers, the Sacred Ibis is NOT covered under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act (given it’s not a native bird). I’m deeply moved to be able to have and work with them–I had goosebumps as I was running them through my hands. The black on them actually isn’t completely black, but contains a beautiful, almost oily iridescence that flares up when light hits them in just the right way. Beautiful. And very Hermetic.
In any case, time to stick this feather back in my hair and get moving. I have a migraine brewing and my mind is running like quicksilver, but there are Things to get done, and sitting on social media isn’t going to manifest those.
