November Sights, Thoughts and Weird Feelings

One of the most terrifying things about life is how fast time flies.  It’s scary to think about how it feels like 2019 just recently got here and we’re already at the tail end of November.It scares me even more knowing that every year seems to go by quicker and quicker, and every late December…

Full Moon Oracle, More Synchronicities & A Word About Intuition

Another 13th. Another full moon. Another card reading. If I’m starting to sound like a broken record, I apologize. There are things in this post I did not want to ramble on about again either. I’m downing some caffeine and forcing myself to write up this blog. I am so out of it. I feel…

Early Autumn Enchantment: The Story of Persephone and Hades

And the moon tonight, there’s a circle around it. A sign of trouble not far behind. I have this dream of being whole. Of not going to sleep each night, wanting. But still, sometimes, when the wind is warm or the crickets sing, I dream of a love that even time will lie down and be still for. I just want someone to love me. I want to be seen. I don’t know…maybe I had my happiness. I don’t want to believe it, but, there is no man, Gilly. Only that moon.”
