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

The trees are slowly starting to turn, pumpkins are making their appearance around town, and Halloween decor is spookingly-gracing the aisles of all the stores. This cusp period of Mabon and the New Moon is my cue to write a magickal blog on my favorite mythological duo – the Lord and Lady of the Underworld…

Tea and a Poem: Lemon Verbena

I’m a fan of lemon-flavored teas and also of using things fresh from my garden. Easy, breezy “recipes” are even better. It doesn’t get any simpler or more natural than this. Pick a few leaves from your Lemon Verbena, pour a cup of boiling water over them, let steep, and voila – Lemon Verbena Tea….

Attempting “Therapy Tarot”

For the last day of July, I’m closing out with more mystic “food for thought.”   I came across this tarot spread idea on Facebook a couple months ago and considered trying it out. I’m very sporadic with using my cards, and yesterday I finally got myself to do it. It’s me we’re talking about, so…
