The most celebrated myth concerning Amaterasu is when She blocked Herself in a cave following an argument. As a consequence of Her disappearance, the world was cast in total darkness & evil spirits ran riot over the earth. The gods also placed a large sakaki tree outside the cave & decorated it with sparkling jewels, fine white clothes & a mirror at its center. In addition, goddess Amenouzume danced so wildly in a strip-tease routine that the other gods’ uproarious laughter finally excited the curiosity of Amaterasu. Opening the blocked cave just enough to see what was going on & distracted by seeing her stunning reflection in the mirror, She came out and the world knew sunlight again.

One partner. Create an altered mirror as a part of the myth to bring out the light in your partner as she looks at her reflection. Mirror magick has many applications that include seeing people far away, dream scrying, carrying out spells, magick to remember or to forget. Historically, mirror magick is an ancient art that can be traced back to the Chinese Han dynasty (206 BC – 24 AD) and exists in many cultures. (Amaterasu is from the Japanese Shinto religion.)

Senders Choice for the altered mirror. It should be at least the size of your palm. It can hang, be held, or set on an altar. (Notice 2 different spellings for a word that sounds the same. To alter means change; an altar is where we place sacred items and do our magickal workings.) Artistry and artistic design is left to the artist. You can begin your work as soon as you sign up.

PLEASE PUT TOGETHER A PACKAGE THAT HAS SPIRITUAL VALUE. Send things you would be thrilled to receive.

Send on time. Rate when received. Include a note with the swap name, your ID and reasoning for what you sent. This is a swap requirement and if it is missing, please rate a 3. Remember the rating system says we give a 5 if your altered mirror was sent before/on the deadline, a 3 if it was sent late, and a 1 if it never came. Flakers are automatically removed from the group list. PM me with questions or concerns.
