For the last few years, the website hasn’t been anything other than a place for retail stores to order oils. The Quadrivium social media accounts haven’t been too active, either (except for Twitter, where I talk about politics a lot).
As it turns out, the pandemic lockdown has left some graphic/website designers looking for work. The main Quadrivium Supplies website is being redesigned by one of these generous geniuses, and the Instagram and FB accounts are slooooowly turning into a place where followers can see pictures of oils. And quotes from magicians and philosophers and astrologers that are important to me.
Due to the pandemic, a few stores have closed or changed up their stock. Both Artes & Craft and Draconis Arcanum just placed large orders that have recently been shipped, and a new store called Carpe Diem Nursing will be carrying a selection of Quadrivium Oils shortly.
Writing about ritual oil basics has reminded me that things I find “instinctive” about magical practice aren’t instinct at all. I had to learn it, at some point, but enough time has passed for me to forget that someone had to teach me.
On Twitter, I asked people about what very basic information they wish someone would have taught them about when they begin practicing. Thorn Mooney made a short YouTube video in response to the question, talking about the blind spots we have regarding information we’ve forgotten that we learned.
On Twitter, I asked if people had any requests or ideas for the next FB/Twitter/blog follower giveaway. Silver Shadow (from the podcast Pagan Rappaport) had an interesting idea. Instead – or maybe in addition to – the usual oils, have the “give away” be a 20 minute one-on-one Skype session with me. You’d get to ask questions about oil creation, oil use, best oils for a situation, or pretty much anything else you can think of to ask.
I’m on board with it, if anyone would be interested. I need some feedback as to the interest level of the FB/Twitter/blog followers and other Quadrivium fans, though. Are there people who’d be interested in this kind of giveaway?
