So I set up an altar outside recently, and I wanted to try doing some work at it. My aunt suggested trying out wax scrying cause in her words it would be fun. Sadly it didn't work out for me, so instead I stared at my insence until I realized that it was blowing directly at me and making shapes that I could actually distinguish. Lesson learned? It's a lot easier to scry with your own element.
Aside from that I talked to a raven today, it was on a Birch tree right outside my house being super loud so I went outside and I asked it to be quite, and it stopped making noise. Then I told it if it was going to be that loud it Should go somewhere else (I used please in this sentence cause I didn't want to be rude to the raven, just in case) and in response it took of rather loudly.
Any ideas on this? Maybe there's someone watching over me I don't know which deities are associated with raven's but maybe.
