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 complaining. 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 (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 asked 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.

The Magician Reversed with jumpers-2 of Wands and 6 of Chalices Reversed.
These cards give a very clear message: wait before moving forward!!! With just having celebrated the New Moon (I will be tomorrow), you may be ready to get your feet on the ground and manifest those intentions. However, we’re being told to hold our horses and chill for a bit. Allow those intentions to really set before we begin action. All because we aren’t actively working towards them doesn’t mean we aren’t doing anything. Remember that!
The Magician is telling us things are not in our control at the moment. Wait. Don’t force it. 2 of Wands is all about looking to the future, reflection, and balancing our thoughts. The magician is balanced so this could be what must be controlled first. 6 of Chalices means that we are being drawn to look back at the past, at the old, but with a sense of detachment. We are being called to release. There may be something from the past you are still secretly clinging to which isn’t going to be conducive to manifestation.

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.

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.
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. ❤✨🌟

We’ve all had moments and points in our lives where we become so desperate that we open ourselves to any-and-every thing so long as it removes us from our current situation. Yet most of the times these manifestations won’t pan out very well. I’ve definitely not above this and actually have been doing it for quite some time without realizing that that was precisely what was wrong. That was the reason everything was failing miserably! It was such a profound and awakening experience–though also quite shameful because how did I miss it?! It’s okay. Sometimes we must learn the hard way and this is no reason to berate yourself.
Whenever we do magick, we’re told to be specific but not so specific that the Universe can’t have some wiggle room. Well, what about leaving everything very open? Case in point, I’d been struggling financially for quite some time and there is so much on that topic that this post could never begin to cover–it has a lot about how I was raised with money and my parents own views of lack. Anyways, I was desperate and knew I had to have a job. How else could I possibly hope to live? There was so much I wanted to do in life but it would all never happen unless I had some green in my wallet.
Therefore, I would send the intention out that I would get a job–any job–and apply to as many jobs as I could find on the internet within close proximity to where I lived. I would get phone calls from fast food joints and retail shops. I never stopped to ponder what sort of job did I really want. I just needed money. I would get the job and then realize after a while that they were using me, worked in perhaps unethical manners, or something else. There was always a reason and for a while, I never did stay long. I was frustrated and annoyed because nothing was fulfilling me. Instead I was being left feeling drained, upset, annoyed, and pissed. One of the fast food jobs sounded amazing and I’d been told we closed at ten p.m. then once I started and was scheduled to close, I discovered that drive-thru (where I was) didn’t close until 11 and that there was only ever two employees and a manager to close–including their busy Friday nights! Instead of leaving about 10:30 as expected, I didn’t leave until 12:20!!
Sitting at home in tears because I felt so upset, exhausted, and pissed, I realized I was continually returning to the same places with the knowledge that they didn’t make me happy. Sure, I love working with people and have no problem in customer service oriented environments. I’m good at dealing with people but these companies were not what I wanted. I was doing magick to successfully procure these positions but not being specific enough. I realized I had to be specific and actually figure out what it is I want from a job, what I’m looking for, etc. Keyword: BE SPECIFIC! Write it down. Put that intention out into the Universe instead of “I’m desperate! Give me anything!” Anything is good enough. I deserve more than just anything.
If you’re having a similar problem (and it doesn’t have to solely pertain to jobs) take a honest look at what you’re sending to the Universe. What frequency and vibration are you maintaining? Try taking time out to create a manifestation list–a list of everything you want to manifest with as much detail as possible. Of course, keep it open so the Universe has some wiggle room but ensure the major points are outlined. Look at it each day. Return to that specific frequency. Maintain it. Most importantly, know you are worth more than what you have been allowing into your life.
