Tarot Reading for September 2019

Princess of Cups “A gentle, delicate being, the Princess of Cups is finely tuned to the watery world of emotions. Perhaps naively, she wants to believe that a Utopia is possible, a world that is abundant with love, light, and peace. When she discovers the world can be a dark and deadly realm, the shock…

Flashback! St Antony of Egypt in 1998

Timeless advice: October 1998 A word from Spirit: St. Anthony Channeled by Ayamanatara The balance of the Universe is such that, in order to…

Fabric arts ritual with an activist purpose

Back in July, I posted a ritual (not mine) to help protect immigrants. With all the hubub around Title X funds, I would like to offer you another ritual, this time from Crafting Change, for Abortion Patients, Providers, and Protectors. What you will need: * A quiet space to do this work * That which…

The machinations and movement of Jupiter

Jupiter is my favorite planet, astrologically speaking. His energy reminds me of the Ghost of Christmas Present in A Christmas Carol, all expansive and jolly. It’s a friendly planet, and offsets the stick-in-the-mud energy of Saturn (to be fair, they are supposed to balance each other out, I just don’t like being told what to…

Why is the Internet important for change?

The Internet is a manifestation of the Fourth Dimension, what some people call the Astral. There is no time, no space, and you are not defined by race, heritage, gender, orientation, religion, or socioeconomic status unless you choose to be. This is not to say that you shouldn’t choose to be, only that you have…

Grief and Personal Growth: A reading for 8/2019

The Five of Cups “I am inconsolable” From Davide De Angelis: “For this card to have impact, one does not have to be dealing with something catastrophic. It points to the fact that we all carry tremendous grief: ancestral grief, family grief, cultural grief, grief for our loss of innocence. Grief is part of the…

Pagan Astrological Celebrations and Observances

Every tradition that I know of has sacred days they observe and honor. There are many variations in observances under the large umbrella of Paganism; a good rule of thumb, though, is to look at the Solar and Lunar cycles as guides. The Lunar Cycle is 28.25(ish) days long and run from New Moon to…

Dealing with Physical Pain

Everyone experiences physical pain at some point, to varying degrees. Our instinctual reaction to pain is one of alarm or fear, and a desire to get away from it. It makes sense – pain is supposed to be a danger signal in the body that says “STOP DOING THAT!” Energetically, we try to push it…

The Magdalene on balance

Balance is important. Without access to the full spectrum of expression of a given thing, imbalance occurs, which means that the expression of that thing will be potentially problematic. In this abstract, this is either an obvious statement or completely incomprehensible, depending on the person. If you only ever exercise your lower leg by pointing…
