Full Moon in Virgo Reading

Full Moon in Virgo Reading

Howdy-do, Folks! So, I am finally feeling awake enough to start blogging more frequently. Thank Gods-n-Goddesses, because someone who is used to having so much energy doesn’t funk long-term well. But, I am back at it now! I’m using Ethony Dawn’s spread for my New Moon in Virgo reading. If you don’t follow her… well, you should because she’s spectacular! This is her image, by the way. I’m doing the reading for myself. And I have to admit, I am shoulder deep in some turbulent times right now. My home life is a little messy and I am trying to sort things out. So, this Full Moon and the transformational energy it holds are something that I need! I’m using the Mary El tarot for this reading. If you don’t have it, but you love a deck that is deep and a little bit “off” from the traditional Rider-Waite look and feel, I definitely recommend it. It’s one of my all-time faves for personal work. Here’s my spread: 1. What baggage am I being challenged to leave behind? The Lovers. Ouch. Touche tarot. Yes. There is some baggage – major baggage related to my love life that I need to leave behind right now. Let’s say that I am working on changing the energy around that – within myself and within my relationship. I get it. 2. How can I relieve my more critical energies this Full Moon? 4 of Swords. Totally hit the nail on the head. This gal needs some R&R big time. I need to make more time to relax and chill out. That will help everything enormously. 3....
Anemia Got Me

Anemia Got Me

Hello there! Long time no talk. Or so it seems. I wanted to share my little story with you all because I know that many of you are also spiritual business people – or heck, even energetic human beings roaming this earth, experiencing your own ups and downs. And I was in a down. I wrote it off to SAD (Seasonal Affective Depression) and also to the fact that it was winter – and this is the first year I gave myself permission to pause during the winter months, just like the earth does during the winter season. Unfortunately, sleep became something of an addiction to me. I didn’t have even a quarter of my usual energy or motivation. I was sleeping until 11 am, getting up, doing all that I could to just scrape by doing the bare minimum, and then crawling back into bed as soon as I could.   And my self-care was just kind of not there. No music, no art, no long hot baths with candles and incense. I barely kept my toenails painted! And I certainly wasn’t taking nature walks or even hitting the gym regularly. I was kind of starting to get concerned, because I am normally a little bit of an energy fairy – flitting here and there – always happy and on the go…. But I just wasn’t feeling my usual self. So I made an appointment with my doctor for a blood test and all of the general check-ups that might give me an idea of what was draining my energy. Low and behold! My anemia had gotten WORSE, and that was...

Imbolc Celebration – My First Time

  I don’t know if it is the fact that I am older or the fact that I am really working on grounding and becoming more connected to the Earth, but I FEEL the changes and intuit the meanings behind the holidays that are celebrated in the Pagan community. For example, this year I allowed myself to somewhat hibernate during the winter. I didn’t have the same expectations for myself to always be doing and creating and moving forward. I took the time to just rest (mostly, if an entrepreneur anyone with 3 kids and a dog can really rest). It helped, too – at least it seemed to! I actually enjoyed going out with my boys in the cold. I dragged them around on their sleds and had a blast with them, watching them WHOOSH down the little hill at the edge of our village. And I don’t know if it was my plans for a trip to Florida that made this winter somewhat tolerable for me. I have some sunshine to look forward to – warm days and beaches. That might have helped to buoy my mood. Either way, I’ve felt a stirring in the last few days – a sense that I wanted to start DOing again. That I was done with BEing and with the rest. It was like I was ready to wake up after my winter slumber. Then I read about Imbolc, which is today! Imbolc is a Gaelic/Celtic holiday dedicated to the Goddess Brigid and the return of the Sun. It’s midpoint in the Winter, which means that warm weather is on...

Fasting Day 2 – White Tara and Sensitivity

OUCH. Fasting can be painful. Well, I don’t know if it is more the fast/detox or the shifting air pressure that has my head POUNDING. White Tara is the perfect card for today, as you can tell. Honor sensitivities, avoid things that irritate. I’m taking it really slow today. Nursing my head. Drinking plenty of water. I took a salt bath as well. All things to help the toxins pass out of my system ASAP! And honestly, I needed a slow day. Sometimes life throws you a reason to take a slow day so that you’ll slow down! I think I’ll start scheduling some me time into my weeks. Despite my headache, I really enjoyed my salt bath, complete with facial mask and skin peeling scrub. And I created a really yummy new smoothie, today! But I am hungry. So hungry....
