Summer Self-Confidence Ritual Well we are officially into the summer season, even with the strangeness of the world around us, we want to be out and about, feeling good and soaking up those rays of sunshine and that fresh summer air. However, if you are anything like me, the COVID-19 has hit your emotions and confidence. When we are surrounded by negative words and fear it feeds into our own energies. So what did I do? I turned to my favorite candle magick. I started with a Gold candle (I’ll tell you why in a minute), got out a piece … Continue reading Summer Self-Confidence Ritual
Hello! I am so excited to be here again. I am working on getting a schedule down. I don’t have it quite yet, but I promise it will be more regular, even if it is just a quick recipe for an upcoming Sabbat, or a happy Full Moon Blessings. Right now, I have just received the landscaping plans for my back yard and I can’t be more excited because there is going to be a fire pit/altar area in the back of it which means I will have some outdoor area that will be dedicated to practicing my way of … Continue reading New Space
Per my usual it is start over time. I feel like I am constantly starting over. Every little thing seems to throw me off for the past few years and I don’t get it, so time to ground and center and get back to being me. The whole teach online thing, though, that was crazy. I stopped all online activity except teaching and creating because I was screen weary at the end of the day/week. That is where I was at. Now, it I summer and I have taken a week to not do anything. Time to get back at … Continue reading And Just Like That…
I was already slipping into the abyss when the pandemic hit. I had been clawing and backpeddaling to stay out of it. I had sold multiple tarot/oracle readings, was feeling good about where I was headed spiritually and it was helping me to keep my head on straight with all the work stuff and I was almost back to be grounded. Damn the abyss. Of course just as I was getting there the bottom fell out of the rest of the world and I went tumbling. However, today I rise. Not just in getting up and getting dressed (which I … Continue reading Wait…I’m Here
We are fast coming up on one of my favorite holidays, Ostara. When Spring officially begins, we are in balance with light and dark, and Eostre is awakening Mother Earth after her sleep. It is time to begin planting, watch the new generations of animals be born, and enjoy some of the best foods. This is time of creation, and since we want to prepare in advance to work on the day of, I thought I would give you some of my favorite recipes. Some of these I have modified (and will credit the original creator) and others are just … Continue reading Recipes for Ostara
So the great thing about where I work is that we have these random weeks off. Not just the standard school breaks at the holidays, but weeks in the middle of February, which is awesome! This past week my husband and I went to New Orleans. We got there on a Saturday early afternoon and left Thursday late. This meant that we got to the enjoy the Mardi Gras spirit and early parades without the craziness of all the 20 somethings during actual Mardi Gras weekend. It was amazing. I have never been, so we literally spend 5 days in … Continue reading Vacation was fabulous!
Today is the day I choose to reflect on what is working and what isn’t working for me. Interestingly enough the Word of the Day is Balance. While that may seem easy, for someone who is always 100% into everything, and has 100 irons in the fire, it is almost impossible to do. So, I am working on what I can cut out, hand off, or postpone until such a time as I am able to actually devote time to it. One thing that has definitely suffered is my house and my husband. So cutting out a few of the … Continue reading Oh Universe…
Or so the cards all told me today. This morning both Judgment and The World appeared, right after Networking was the word of the day. All 3 of these cards revolve around starting something new. Stating that I have finished a cycle and need to stretch out and reach beyond those I see everyday. So I suppose that means I need to be looking for what has finished (as it wasn’t super obvious), and begin peering into the future for what it is I am going to be starting next. I did begin networking a little more this morning (before … Continue reading Done!
Listen. So today’s Word of the Day is Outlets. That is in reference to doing things outside of what causes you stress! That’s right, I was told by the Universe to go out and be creative; to allow those things that are building up inside of me to flow freely and in the process get better at something, or create something, or simply move so that th energy isn’t staying pent up. What perfect timing as the extra assignment I got is not going well, and causing extreme stress. So what is it I want to do today? Well I … Continue reading The Universe is Speaking…
So I know it is a bit cliche, but with the week I’ve had. Let’s just say that the trouble with getting trouble is it doesn’t change, and that continues to be the case. However, my word for the day, by choice, is resilience. The ability to power through, carry on, be better, grow, move forward, and in general, get to the wine portion of the day. Of course, I drew later in the day when I was calmer in state of mind, and out pops this adorable Knight of Wands, saying “hey, I have great things coming and you … Continue reading Fri-Yay!
