Hello hello and welcome, once again, to your favourite telescope into the infinite void of our future! As we do every week, we will be asking the gods, cosmos, heavens, and so on for some guidance as we venture into the great unknown!
But first, there are a few things that need addressing. First off, sorry for being so bloody right all the time. Unfortunately, I cannot help it, I am merely a vessel through which the universe communicates. Regardless, I wish the best to the Dracheblume-Pumpkernickle alliance.
Secondly, as many of my returning readers from last year may recall, I have a few contacts within the castle who are, shall we say, a bit more finely in tune with the world of Divinations. A rather shady and mysterious group that sends bloody chills down my spine, if I’m being honest. Might be a bit weird and spooky sometimes but they seem a good sort.
Anyhow, yesterday morning I received an owl informing me of no fewer than six seers who shared the same vision in different parts of the castle at the same time!! I’m told the majority of them were in the Long Gallery when it happened but sounds like they were all over. However, to protect the privacy and identities of those involved, none of this group will be named here in this article.
What did they have to say? Well seems there was something about an imminent attack… somewhere! Was a city street somewhere but sounds like there was electricity and cars and such so seems to be either muggle or a shared wixen-muggle community but hard to tell for certain. Mostly just chaos and panic but I’m told it was hard to tell exactly what happened. With it came a warning about a “scarred man” which, let’s be bloody honest, could be literally anyone. Are there any wixen blokes not wearing some scars on their faces? Dittany’s a thing, mates, I’m really starting to think it’s more of a fashion statement than anything.
Right, well what do we do with this information?
First of all, don’t bloody panic because that won’t solve anything. Second, if you’re one of the seers who got the vision, please remember Professor Fujioka’s words. Your safety, security, and your bloody sanity comes first and there may only be so much you can do. No matter what happens, you are not responsible. It might be bloody frustrating and downright maddening sometimes to possess knowledge that you can’t do anything with but do whatever you need to come to terms with it, yeah? Maybe write a whole bloody list of things that suck and cross out what you can’t change, I guarantee you’ll feel better with each one you scratch out. Alright, so maybe the professor didn’t say quite all that but close enough probably.
Well then, with all that out of the way it’s time to move on to this week’s reading. Reckon I’ve done plenty enough rambling so I’ll keep this bit short and sweet. I’m gonna pull a single rune from my little satchel and that will serve as our bit of guidance for the coming week. Or two weeks. Or however often I’m doing these.
Tonight I’m just chilling in the common room because it’s bloody late and I just got back from the Bash and I’m already in my pajamas and chilling in bed. Pretty bloody comfy, honest. I close my eyes and reach into the bag, letting my heart guide me to the right one. It takes me a moment but there it is! I wrap it into my palm and pull it free from the bag and after a deep breath, I open my eyes and… bloody hell.
Right, so that’s Kenaz, the torch. Like everything, it could be interpreted in a few different ways. Taking it literally, it could be pointing to some sort of fire but, remember, it’s a torch which typically means it’s the good and helpful sort of fire moreso than an uncontrolled roaring inferno. Torches also produce light which could imply there are secrets being revealed or knowledge gained by “shining light” on something. Then again, it could be more of a spark of creativity or something like that too but hard to say. Either way, that light, and fire has a way of snuffing out the shadows and it tends to lean a bit positive.
Well, that’s all I have for this week, dear readers. As always, keep doing stuff and whatever I guess.
