Staying True To Our Values ~ Human Design Transits for 30 November 2017

Stepping Aside has a Facebook page. It’s one that I host off of my own personal page and I’ve begun posting information about daily planetary transits from a Human Design perspective. I really like this system. It utilizes planetary influences along with hexagrams from the I Ching to give us an interesting perspective on our […]

Manifesting Our Power ~ Runecasting for 29 November 2017

Manifesting Our Power ~ Runecasting for 29 November 2017

I love oak trees. Sacred to Druids, pagans, and witches, I finally planted an oak tree last year over by my three weeping willows and so far it’s growing well. I found some acorns on our morning walk today and gathered some along with their “hats” which I may use as chime candle holders. I’ll […]

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 […]

A Change In Perspective ~ Tarot for 27 November 2017

A Change In Perspective ~ Tarot for 27 November 2017

A change in one’s perspective is necessary especially when loving communication is no longer possible. We want to blame everyone else when in truth, the conflict begins within. Decisions regarding others are made, harsh judgments levied, with schisms the result. At some point, when these things keep happening, it makes sense to look inward at […]

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

It’s been an odd year, at least for me. I didn’t vote for the current guy in the White House and frankly, I’m appalled at what’s now going on in our country. Predatory behavior is being alleged regarding a growing number of men and I’ll bet we’ve not even begun to scratch the surface. And […]

When A Little Magick Is Necessary

When A Little Magick Is Necessary

Sometimes, when reason and truth don’t happen to work with someone, a little magick is necessary. While we all have the free will to do as we please, that doesn’t always work out when we treat others with disrespect. And when the individual won’t stop, then it may be necessary to look for other ways […]

Survivors: Enduring The Impossible

Survivors: Enduring The Impossible

As survivors, we spend our lives enduring the impossible. And the detailed allegations of men using their positions to sexually harass or assault both men and women, feels impossible to take in, no matter how encouraging it might be that the truth is now coming out. Making a distinction between the unwanted aggressive sexual behavior and […]

Inner Development and the Witch's Pyramid ~ Tarot for 17 Nov 2017

Inner Development and the Witch’s Pyramid ~ Tarot for 17 Nov 2017

Witches love correspondences and use them to support magickal workings. We break energies down by their elemental qualities and apply those correspondences to Tarot, astrology, runes, angelic presence, stones, plants, incense, just about anything, really. Today’s tarot reading includes one card from each suit along with one card from the Major Arcana serving as significator […]

Synchronicity and the Miracle of Birth

Synchronicity and the Miracle of Birth

It’s no secret to anyone who reads my blog that I try to include numerology in tarot and rune divinations. I love numerology, maybe even more than astrology. I was listening to a program on Gaia which discussed the event known as the Miracle of the Sun. I perked right up when I heard the date, […]

Energetic Alignments ~ Tarot for 14 November 2017

Energetic Alignments ~ Tarot for 14 November 2017

We’re experiencing date related energetic alignments that some metaphysical observers refer to as stargates while others view them as angelic numbers. Beginning in October, the alignments occur on 10/10, 11/11, and 12/12. My birthday is in October and this group seems to affect me more than others in that I seem to become more reflective […]
