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 […]

We're Better Than This ~ Humanitarianism In The Time Of Trump

We’re Better Than This ~ Humanitarianism In The Time Of Trump

So much for humanitarianism. I woke up in time to watch the last half hour of Joy Reid’s show on MSNBC this morning only to hear from Rep. Luis Gutierrez that the situation is worsening in Puerto Rico while the White House believes their response has been a 10 out of 10. Instead of waking […]

Strength and Integrity ~ Tarot for 27 Feb 2017

Another 6, 7, 8 progression occurs in today’s tarot reading. Communication and balance, intuition and the shadow side of self, and our practical nature comprise the numerological influences of the cards. I pulled a fourth card, an Ace, which corresponds with one or new beginnings. Two cards from the suit of Cups dominate the reading along […]

A Graceful Presence

A Graceful Presence ~ Tarot for 7 Feb 2017

It’s difficult to retain a graceful presence when the so-called new guy is running amok, potentially sending us all off the cliff while he vacations on a golf course after only two weeks in office. Calming our emotions can be difficult during these unsettling times, but as much as we all need to stay calm, […]

Catalyzing Our Intention ~ Tarot for 13 Jan

Catalyzing our intention is the theme of today’s tarot reading. Three cards from the suit of Wands appear in progression in the reading, 6, 7, and 8 respectively. The numerology is 21 which reduces to 3, again catalytic in nature. Looking at the cards, there’s balance and momentum, energy going in all directions. After an initial […]

The Politics Of Baby-Proofing The World Against A Leader Lacking Basic Impulse Control

And So It Begins

The Electoral College did what many of us wished they hadn’t. They formally elected the lowest common denominator as our president. I’m not going to list all of the harm he’s caused others because we’ve all heard it before. Unfortunately, enough people listened to his craven bullshit and because of the idiotic way we elect […]

The Power of the Queens

The Power of a Queen

A witch is drawn to places of power whether it be the mountains, the desert, or the ocean. We’re a curious bunch, and we notice all sorts of things when wandering about. One of the things we notice are rocks, particularly if they have holes in them. Every witch loves hag, or holey, stones. A divination tool, the […]

empath and empathy

The Absence of Integrity

There’s little else that matters to me than my integrity. While not an uncommon trait for a witch, it’s something that I believe in above anything else. It matters that I’m taken seriously because I don’t lie. An empath as well, empaths cannot tolerate dishonesty in others any more than we can tolerate it in […]

Human Design Transits 7182016

Integrity, Self-Sabotage, and Unsustainable Choices: Human Design Transits for 18 July 2016

Today’s transits suggest that we may be sabotaging our own actions, in turn creating an unsustainable situation for ourselves and others. In Human Design, the 64 Gates represent the 64 hexagrams or guas from the I Ching. Even numbered lines represent Yang or creative/projective energies, and odd numbered lines represent Yin or receptive energies. Six of today’s transiting […]

I Thought We Legalized Cannabis In Oregon

First off..I love the World Famous Cannabis Cafe. I haven’t been to their new location, but the last one was terrific. I had a better time there visiting with people and listening to music than I’ve ever had in a bar..ever. So I was astonished to read an article saying they might have to close down […]
