Bringing Ideas In Sync With Our Will ~ Tarot for 23 February 2018

Bringing Ideas In Sync With Our Will ~ Tarot for 23 February 2018

The hand of inner wisdom and guidance reaches forth from the rocks to grasp the ancient tree of knowledge. The 6 of Swords is titled Science and illustrates six swords, four pointing upward and two pointing downward suggesting the interaction between knowledge learned in form and the inner knowledge of Spirit. With the majority of the swords pointing upward toward […]

Only The Best People For The Swamp

Only The Best People For The Swamp

I really shouldn’t respond to talk shows but I find the either/or nature of the sexual harassment and/or assault conversation these days irritating. No, it’s not acceptable to the so-called left for innocent men to lose their jobs over harassment or assault that never happened. Wrong is wrong although, admittedly, it’s tempting after thousands of years […]

Life As A Cannabis Patient

Life As A Cannabis Patient

Life in Oregon as a cannabis patient is typically non-eventful. Patients actually have amounts that work out well for those who wish to create their own medicines. I’m one such patient. I wrote about my healing with cannabis in my first book, Confessions of a Back Porch Herbalist in which I shared how I healed my severe […]

Tarot and Transits for 20 January 2018 ~ Shutdown Edition

Tarot and Transits for 20 January 2018 ~ Shutdown Edition

Prior to the shutdown of the federal government, we asked for some Temperance, instead we got the 9 of Swords and now, like the 2 of Wands, we’re at a standoff. I’d ask what happened, but then the new guy is upset that the whole shutdown thing is affecting his anniversary party at Mar-a-Lago, so it’s really him that happened. He […]

What More Needs To Happen?

What More Needs To Happen?

What more needs to happen for those who support Donald Trump to finally turn away from this travesty of a human being? I read a comment from him this morning that DACA is “probably dead” and of course, he’s blaming it all on the Democrats, sounding more like a petulant child than anything remotely presidential. […]

Are We Witnessing Elder Abuse?

Are We Witnessing Elder Abuse?

After reading Michael Wolff’s new book, Fire and Fury, I really have to ask, are we witnessing elder abuse? If the book is accurate, then my feeling all along that the campaign was nothing more than a lark for Trump was accurate. And I also felt at the time that something about all of it was […]

When The Wealthiest Among Us Control The Narrative, Our Children Suffer The Most

Do we really want to live in a country where children die so that the wealthiest among us control the narrative? The Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) still hasn’t been reauthorized and the consequences will be as real as it gets for the 9 million children affected. Families who qualify for this program earn too […]

Dear Donald: Grow Up, Will You?

Oh my goddess, Donald, grow up already! If the above tweet isn’t enough to see that you’re completely off your rocker, then I’m sure all any of us needs to do is to head over to your Twitter timeline. Donald, this looks like something a teenager might tweet about another teenager, not something we would expect […]

We Really Are The Ones We’ve Been Waiting For

Maybe we lost our way long ago. Maybe the ground was already established for the vitriol many of us now experience. Someone on social media that I’ve been friends with for a while became snarky with me when I commented on a news article. The person apologized, but it’s so upsetting when it happens. I […]

It's Not About Putting America First. It's About The Safety And Protection Of Our Children. Always.

In Support Of Safety And Dignity For All

Full disclosure in case you’re new to the blog: I’m not a supporter of our current president nor do I support his policies. Instead, I’m a supporter of families, women, truth, integrity, shared sacrifice, unity, and progressive thinking. But when he was tragically elected nearly a year ago, besides having a panic attack, I wondered […]
