OCCULT: Summer Solstice 2018

Today is the Summer Solstice! This is the longest day of the year, and the official beginning of the Summer season – as well as one of the most important dates of the year for pagans. The Solstice (Litha, if you practice a Germanic paganism or are a Wiccan) is the height of the year, where all life is in full bloom and are filled with the spirit of renewal.

ASSOCIATIONS: Today marks the beginning of the year where you can enjoy life to the fullest. Stay out late, get yourself an ice cream, or enjoy the flowers blooming. Summer, to us, is the season of excess and we try to make it a point to live up to that every year.

Financially, Summer is the period of time where your saving should be paying off. Over the Winter, and through the Spring, you’ve been pinching your pennies while you look forward to what the next year could bring. Well, it’s time for you to stop waiting and reach out for it! I’m not advising you to spend unwisely, of course… but also you should be spending unwisely. It is Summer.

To forecast for the upcoming Summer, I’ve drawn a three card tarot reading.

GAMING: Pokemon Crystal Randofuser – Part 1: The Slamma

Hey Eggheadz! We’ve got something new for you – we’re doing a Pokemon Crystal Randofuser Nuzlocke run!

What the hell is that, you say? The Pokemon Crystal Randofuser is a randomizer program for Pokemon Crystal with a unique twist – instead of just randomizing the Pokemon, it mashes them together with others to create all-new Pokemon hybrids! We’ll be playing a version of Crystal altered with this program along with Nuzlocke rules – meaning that all Pokemon that faint must be released, and we can only catch the first Pokemon in an area.

So jump right in, and join us on a journey of unimaginable heartbreak and disappointment as we make valuable, irreplaceable friends that die forever! FUN!

OCCULT: DAILY DRAW – Knight of Cups

Today’s card is the Knight of Cups.

A knight with a winged helmet rides a grey horse, carrying a large golden goblet before him. He rides slowly and steadily, in no haste, bringing good tidings with him. He is not a rider of war, but for peace.

The Knight of Cups is the kind of person who always wants to look on the bright side of things. Even in the darkest, deepest pits, this person keeps a smile upon his face and a song in his heart. Though his optimism can be welcome most of the time, it can become overbearing when in a genuinely dour situation – and heavens forbid you be around him when it finally runs out. Behind the cheery exterior lies a bubbling swamp of emotional turmoil the Knight of Cups can’t seem to work out on his own.

Top 10 Spaceworld Beta Pokemon

Possibly the biggest news in video game archiving history so far has been broken: A complete copy of the Pokemon Gold and Silver demo from Spaceworld 1997 has been leaked! This development version is almost totally different from the release, with dozens of previously unseen concept Pokemon that have been either radically changed or completely cut.

The full contents of the leak are being compiled by @TeamSpaceWorld into a table that you can view on Google Docs. To see the new Pokemon, just click on the ‘Pokemon’ tab at the top of the page. If you’re a Pokemon fan, this is a treasure trove of new Pokemon designs that have never before seen the light of day!

We’ve compiled a list of what we think the ten best “lost” designs are!

OCCULT: DAILY DRAW – Three of Cups

Today’s card is the Three of Cups.

Three celebrants make a toast to each other in a garden. They raise their cups high and wear garlands upon their heads. Their faces are aglow with joy.

The Three of Cups is a card of friendship, togetherness, and glee. There’s nothing better than being in the company of your best friends; their energy nourishes you, and gives you a kind of happiness that no other person can match. The Three of Cups represents the bond of friendship between a group of people that is greater than the sum of its parts. It reminds us to keep the pacts between friends strong, and always be faithful to those who are faithful to us!

OCCULT: DAILY DRAW – King of Cups

Today’s card is the King of Cups.

The King of Cups floats on a throne in the middle of the ocean, with ships sailing behind him. He holds his cup in his right hand, and a scepter in the other. He wears an ornate crown on his head, and a shark’s tooth necklace.

A King of Cups is the kind of person you turn to when you’re at your lowest. He always has a kind word, an encouraging statement, and the right attitude to get you on your feet. Unflappable even in the most dire situations, the King of Cups is a rock that everybody wants to anchor themselves to when the storms come to their lives. Unfortunately for the King, he tends to make it his mission to shore as many wayward friends as possible, stretching him to his thinnest limits.
