I was thinking of doing Divination 1 for the ISP. I may yet start the research components of it, but I don't want to start the journal until I've created a new set of ogham and I'm planning to do that as part of my Artisan Guild study program. So here's what I'm thinking (bear with me if this seems complicated - it makes sense to me!):
1) Submit my working outlines to the Art Guild preceptor.
2) Use some online drawing tutorials to refamiliarize myself with perspective, scale, shading, etc...
3) Continue sketching and, eventually, create the necessary pieces for my portfolio.
4) By then I can start "Technical Competence" requirement 3 - "Single Ritual Piece," aka my new and improved ogham.
5) Then I can use the ogham to practice divination for Divination 1.
In the meantime!
1) Start Magic 1. I just ordered a few books to help me complete this portion:
- Practical Magic in the Northern Tradition
- Irish Celtic Magical Tradition: Ancient Wisdom of the Battle of Moytura
- The Magic Arts in Celtic Britain Lewis Spence
I'm really excited to dig into these!
2) By the time I finish Magic 1, I'll be able to do Magic 2 and overlap the journaling with Trance 1.
3) Hopefully, after all the above work, I'll be able to start my divination journal at this time.
4) Throughout all of this I'll be studying Irish, working towards the goals outlined in Indo-European Language 1.
So, yeah. I have a *lot* of work ahead of me. How exciting! Seriously, I love this sort of stuff. (Yes, I miss college already!)
