August Theme–Food Magick

“A good cook is like a sorceress who dispenses happiness.” Elsa Schiaparelli

Brightest of Blessings, Everyone! I hope ya’ll had a great Lughnasadh or Lammas, depending on whichever you choose to call it. We have now officially entered the harvest season with the first of the three festivals. I hope you had much to be grateful for and that your harvest will only continue to grow abundant! 😊

This month I have chosen a theme that I thought worked quite well with a harvest season—drum roll please……..FOOD MAGICK! Who doesn’t love food? Honestly, I am such a foodie and can’t believe I’d never thought to do a post about this before. I have the next couple of weeks labelled with a different sort of food in which I will discuss various correspondences as well as some kitchen tips. I don’t know why but I’m really digging this theme as I’m bringing attention to the kitchen, to the nowadays hearth of the home, and with it still technically being the last days of summer with Leo still ruling the sun, it just feels warm and cozy yet dynamic and creative. Ah!!!!!

“If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.” J.R.R. Tolkien

Anyways, I will be posting on this blog until my new site is up and running. I’m planning to have it completely published and going by the 21st. I really want it to be how I want before I decide to publish it. You know what I’m saying? Until that time, you can still find my newer posts on this site and don’t forget I am also on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. I even can now be found on Sound Cloud though as of the 30th of July, I only had one file uploaded. It’s just a short introduction about who I am and how I came upon my path—if you feel so inclined to listen to it.

Also, I ask that you excuse my absence. I didn’t meant to take that long of a break but it was definitely needed as I slowly return back to my previously motivated and inspired self. We all get into those funks where it’s hard to shake it off. Life became hectic and before I knew it days had turned into weeks, and weeks into a month—whew!

Card of the Day-29 June 2017

The Prison Waif

We all have heard of the law of attraction and many of us put it into practice. We know our thoughts become reality and thereby do our best to remain focused on what it is we desire instead of what we no longer want. We do our best to quit bitching and 20170629_062130complaining. We shift to focusing on the positive and holding a place of gratitude within our hearts for the blessings we have been given.
This is always easier said than done and for most people, myself included at times, we just can’t figure out why the hell we aren’t drawing something into our lives. We’ve had success with the LOA before but now, nothing! I’m going to tell you, more often than not, the problem is you. You are what is holding yourself back. More specifically, it’s your limiting beliefs you might hold. Sometimes we are fully aware of these thought patterns while other times we have buried those feelings so completely that we haven’t a clue!
Have you wanted to manifest a new job that you’ll love but as soon as you land that dream interview or job, something bad happens that causes you to lose it? Instead of throwing blame, ask yourself, “am I afraid of success? do I think i’m not good enough?”. You may have limited beliefs which are forcing you to live the same old story without breaking free. In regards to love, you may secretly believe you are unworthy of love regardless of the countless “I deserve love” affirmations you do.
This is good though because it means you have the power to destroy those negative thought patterns to create new more inspired positive thoughts.
Don’t sabotage yourself. You deserve to be happy, loved, free, and to live a life you love. Stop placing the blame on others and take an honest look at yourself. What thoughts do you keep having? This isn’t about scolding or getting angry with yourself. It’s identifying a problem and implementing a solution. Set yourself free of limiting beliefs. Manifest the life you desire. You’re worth it!

Card of the Day-31 May 2017

Card of the Day (or should I say cards)
Full Moon (Completion) Reversed, 4 of pentacles, 8 of pentacles, king of swords reversed.

We are still working towards the manifestation of a goal, perhaps one formed during the New Moon and this card is telling us now is not the time to sit on our laurels. Instead we must now actively work towards bringing our desire into fruition. How? That’s what I IMG_20170531_083938_841asked before drawing the other 3 cards because direction may be needed.
We may finally be in a place of stability–even if but slightly–which makes this a good time to work towards your goal. Remain conservative of your time, money, and energy as they are your greatest assets presently. However, do not become stingy and possessive about money.
Diligent hard work and attention to detail is called upon now. This isn’t a goal that will appear magickally from nowhere. Instead you must roll up your sleeves and get to it.
However, we end with a warning and that is don’t become aggressive. Don’t force anything to happen. If we spend too much energy and effort without necessary breaks and pauses then we can easily burn out. When we force things to manifest we are actually working against them and in fact could cause it to take longer to appear-if at all.
We have plenty of work ahead of us that is the only way this goal will manifest. Now there is a change of stability and circumstance to allow for this to come into reality. However, don’t become possessive, aggressive, or force it. Let it organically come into being.

Card of the Day-23 May 2017

Card of the Day:
The Camel Boy 🐫 reversed

Today is all about the pause. What do I mean about that? Before we do anything we mustIMG_20170523_112224_756 first think of it. Imagine it. Before there is action, there is a slight pause that is expansive and full of potential. This would be were emotions are stirred up which makes it a powerful moment (regardless of how short). Relish in this pause. Allow yourself to experience it. Use it as a springboard for enthusiasm, motivation, and excitement. This is also the place in which fear arrives but that isn’t bad. Wanna know why? Fear makes our trust and desire stronger. With fear we have to trust even more in ourselves and the outcome. Tell me that isn’t beautiful!  It doesn’t have to be only for all things magick but mundane as well. Remember life is magick.

Card of the Day
The Arrow Master

This card is all about manifestation and the three major points: intent, focus and direction of energy, and allowance. (Of course there’s more to it but this is sort of the basic skeleton of it.) Without all of these steps, magick cannot happen. Perhaps you’ve been desperately trying to manifest something and its not happening. Maybe you have set your intentions and you are too specific on what it is you want.
Relax and ease up. Desperation and too much control are only going to cause a restriction of room for your desire to manifest. Maybe you have done the opposite and allowed room for the Universe to work but aren’t focusing your own energy. Remember, you must do the work too. You must actively work towards your manifestation. Magick will help it come to you but you must be willing to back your desire up in the physical plane.
Today, if you’re indeed having these problems (and even the most experienced of witches can), take note of which step you may not be fully participating in. Have you set your intentions? Gotten specific? Have you focused your energy and directed it towards your goal? Lastly, have you given the Universe some wiggle room on how to provide your desire? This also implies you allowing the manifestation to come into your life. Allowance is key and trips some people up. Just take note and fix that which isn’t working. You can manifest your dreams. ✨🔮❤

Happy Manifesting!

Card of the Day-19 April 2017

IMG_20170419_090840_813

Knight of Chalices Reversed and Queen of Swords (Jumper)

As the sun moves from fiery Aries, which gave us that spark for life and action once more, to the earthy and stable Taurus, we will find ourselves becoming more grounded. We aren’t as quick to jump into action but instead must ensure there is an emotional desire to our actions. We can have all the energy, will, and I can attitude but unless there is an emotional investment (a desire within) then it isn’t an inspired action. If you’re having trouble manifesting something in your life, assess what emotions it invokes within you? Is there even an emotional response?  Remember emotions create our need, our desire, our want and is an important part of the witch’s pyramid.

Cards from the Rider-Waite deck.

Take some time today to really feel and delve into your emotions to discover what it is your heart truly desires.

Brightest of Blessings,

Card of the Day-13 April 2017


Card of the Day

The Fire Prince

We just celebrated the Full Moon Tuesday and perhaps some of our intentions set during the New Moon have yet to manifest. With that can come feelings of doubt, anxiety, and fear. We begin to belittle and berate ourselves before we even have the chance to remember that depending on what our intention was, it may take longer than a moon cycle. Depending on the spell, it could take a year!  The Fire Prince represents the force behind the scenes that is unseen yet drives everything into fruition. Some call this force God, Spirit, Goddess or even just The Universe but regardless of the name you have labelled it, know that is helping to manifest your goal. Be optimistic. Any self doubts, worries, and fears can actually negate your spell! Just remain hopeful and continue taking action towards your intention. Put forth the work and know with certainty that it shall happen. ❤✨🌟
