Make your own Roman Style Curse Tablet
All across the Roman Empire a common form of folk magick was the so-called ‘curse tablet,’ or a spell inscribed on a soft sheet of metal and then turned over to the gods. Often these spells were used to recover stolen goods, have success in court, or secure love. Formulaic incantations were scratched onto lead or tin by the petitioner and were part of asking local patron deities, especially liminal gods such as Hekate and Saturn, for assistance. In this workshop we will review some of the hundreds of actual tablets that have been found underground or in springs across Europe, and using their formulas for petitioning a deity, we will each make one of our own! Supplies provided, limited spots available.

The Gifts of Saturn – Help Craft Main Ritual!
We invite all of our Turning the Tide family to help us craft invocations to Saturn to be used during our main ritual. During this time, we will discuss and meditate on the Gifts of Saturn: the Secrets of Plants, Opening to Living in Wealth, New Beginnings, and Ending Negative Situations. You will be invited to break into groups based on the gift that calls to you most. Maybe it’s an area you wish to strengthen, or one you have always been drawn to. Each group will craft their own invocation to Saturn to petition His guidance in that area. One person from your group will read the invocation during Main Ritual.
