Wisdom Of The Innocent ~ Tarot for 19 February 2018

Wisdom Of The Innocent ~ Tarot for 19 February 2018

The innocent among us may possess more inherent wisdom than the rest given their unjaded view of life. But events of the last few days have, once again, challenged that innocence. And now, children are no longer looking to adults for answers. Those of age to vote in November will be doing so, exercising their […]

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

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

Okay. I’m not sure I can focus enough to write this, but I’m going to try. Yesterday’s shooting in Parkland, Florida has left me shaky and emotional. But however I might feel, it pales in comparison to what the students, staff, and families are feeling right now. Watching cellphone footage was bad enough, but frankly, […]

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 […]

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 […]

Humanitarianism Versus Passing The Collection Plate

Humanitarianism Versus Passing The Collection Plate

The rune, Dagaz, from the Elder Futhark indicates a new day arising from awakening and enlightenment. I thought I’d use its shape for today’s tarot reading. After the hurricane and the president that we currently have, we could all use a new day. But let’s see what the cards say. Sometimes I begin in one […]

All We Needed Was More Paint

I Love Dogs, But…

I was a dog owner all of my life until a few years ago. Part of my childhood was spent in Alaska where we raised sled dogs and I was devoted to them. I’ve also had an assortment of other animals including cats, ferrets, goats, cows, rats, and a variety of birds including cockatiels, chickens, […]

Assaulted And Harassed

Assaulted And Harassed

While at the grocery store earlier today, we ran into a guy who assaulted me a few years ago at a business we owned. We didn’t talk to him, but he yelled out to my husband like he does every time he sees us. It reflects the tendency amongst those men who view women as […]

Regrouping For The Coming Struggle

Regrouping For The Coming Struggle ~ Tarot for 28 Jan 2017

Today’s reading gives the feel of everyone off doing their own thing, as if regrouping for the coming struggle. The 6 of Wands depicts a young knight returning home from battle. The crowd receives him with cheers as he carries his flag of victory. The crystal tip of his spear reflects the sun’s rays as […]

20 Minutes of Rape

Another rape on a college campus, this time Stanford. In an article in the Washington Post, his morally bankrupt father referred to it as a “steep price to pay for 20 minutes of action.” Action? Is that what we’re calling rape now? Action? Would it have been rape in his estimation had it lasted 30 […]

Witch Notes: Priorities, 29 Nov 2015

  Priorities. I always need something when I’m snowbound. I planned for the event by shopping the day before. We had no idea how much snow would ultimately fall. With a long driveway and a low to the ground car, driving through snow can be a challenge. My Camry has a very cool spoiler on the front which I […]
