Blessings for Yule and the Winter Solstice!

*original artwork by Auswolf**




Yule Blessings to you and yours!

For many around the world, tonight is the night we will celebrate the Winter Solstice together. It's finally here! Today is the final day that the nights will be longer than the days, and our blessed sun god is returning to us with increasing light as we go forward. I absolutely love how beautiful winter is, but I must confess I miss the long hours I spend in the sunshine and in the woods during the warm months. With his return, tonight is also a night of birth and renewal, hopes and promises for a brighter path moving forward and a blessed new year to come.

In the spirit of the season, it's also a time to give back. I realize that things are tight money wise for many of us, and we must realize that the best gifts aren't bought, but those that come from the heart. Consider sending gifts of energy and healing to those that you love. If you are new, or need a refresher on how to do this, I have a great article here to help you: Create a Gift Of Love and Light

You can also give a gift of time. There are many organizations that need help not only this time of year but all year long. I encourage you to check your local papers and anywhere else you can think of to see how you can help. I know on Facebook there are tons of campaigns to help families in our local area in need. This is the first year that I've finally seen Facebook becoming useful in this way. I believe a good part of it is them allowing us to prioritize what posts we see. I have seen so many campaigns go by to help local families and businesses in need. They aren't just looking for money they are looking for donations of time and goods as well. If you are on Facebook type in the town and state that you live in and see what comes up for groups and pages. You may be surprised at the resources available to you for news and events going on. See if there's some way that you can help out this season.

You also will want to check your papers and local listings for celebrations in your area. This is the one holiday that we celebrate that you are quite likely to find celebrations for it out in the public. Several years ago I found that our town does an annual bonfire on the Winter Solstice. Along with the bonfire they sing carols and have provide hot cocoa. This is a great way for my children to get an introduction to being Wiccan and they absolutely adore it. In my area there tends to be a lot of bonfire celebrations and winter moonlit walks. It's a great way to possibly meet others who share the same interests as you. If the weather cooperates, the winter moonlight walks can be absolutely magickal. If you get the opportunity to go on one I can't recommend it enough.

Other ideas to celebrate Yule include making your yule log. You could go out on a walk and collect evergreen branches to make into wreaths for your home. Bake some goodies like cookies or stews and make your house smell amazing. Grab a book and curl up in the corner to spend some relaxing time. It's a time for celebrating the season and the returning of the sun.

Have a Blessed Yule!

Much Love and Many Blessings,

Yule Blessings! :))) Happy Winter Solstice!

Merry Meet and Good Morning! Today is Thursday, December 21, 2017. Thursdays are ruled by Jupiter, the planet that signifies expansion and growth. Thursdays are a very strong day to work on issues of expansion, money, prosperity and generosity. Luck is in your favor on this day. If you need to work spells for prosperity, money, luck, or business, today is the day. It’s also a good day for spells that need to influence important people, laws or courts. If you are working with stones today choose to wear sapphire, cat’s eye, or carnelian, for protection. Use tin for talismans.

Tonight's Moon is Waxing, First Quarter with 6% visibility. The Waxing Moon is when the moon is getting larger in the sky, and moving towards the full moon. It is the ideal time for magick that draws things towards you bringing about positive changes. The Waxing Moon represents the Goddess in her Maiden aspect. The Maiden is all about new beginnings, youthful ideas and enthusiasm. The next important day for your magickal work is the Full Moon on January 1, 2018!

Today the Moon is in Aquarius. The Moon in Aquarius is a rebellious energy. It’s time to break habits and make abrupt changes. Personal freedom and individuality is the focus. The magickal color of the day is Crimson and the incense of the day is Myrrh.

Have an amazingly magickal day!

Much Love and Many Blessings,

Working With Your Spirit Animal

graphic by the amazing Ravynn Phelan


One of the most popular readings that I have is the Spirit Animal reading.  Everyone has Spirit Guides that work with them and I have yet to meet anyone who doesn’t have Spirit Animals as well.  I usually find that each person has several.  It may be a furbaby on the other side, a spirit animal that’s been with us since birth, or one that is working with us to help us with something specific on our path.  
Every spirit animal that is working with you brings you energy.  The Wolf helps us with loyalty, trust and feeling safe and secure.  The Hawk helps to bring us wisdom and the ability to see the big picture as well as the tiny details.  The Fox helps us to see different options for every situation and to think outside of the box.  There are so many amazing spirit animals out there.
When you know who your Spirit Animal is you can work with them to draw their energy to you.  Well what does that mean? Let’s take for instance the wolf.  The White Wolf is one of my main spirit animals.  When I feel like I’m in a situation where I would like to feel more secure I visualize the white wolf by my side.  That action of visualizing the white wolf by my side summons the energy of that guide and allows me to tap into the energy of that spirit animal.  Easy right? That is the simplest way to draw their energy to you. 
Some spirit animals are easier to spend time with.  For instance you may find that if you have a dog, cat or another animal that is accessible, spending time with that animal will also increase the energy that they bring you.  This isn’t always possible.  It would be pretty hard to spend time with a wolf.  Although I did find the most amazing wolf sanctuary here in Massachusetts thanks to a fellow Daily Magick member.  It was the most incredible experience to spend a couple of hours a stone’s throw from several wolves.  In the case that you can’t spend time with them you may want to hang pictures of them or keep pictures of them on you.  Basically anything that you can think of to help you connect with that spirit animal.
The final thing you want to do is watch for them on your path as they will often bring you messages.  Sometimes you will get a spirit animal that is really good at this.  I also work with the red-tailed hawk and I will see her often on my path.  She often shows up at times that I need reassurance with decisions.  It’s pretty amazing.  However they don’t have to come to you in person.  Watch for them in pictures, magazines, on signs, you never know how they will find their way to you.  When you find them make sure that you pay attention to what’s currently going on in your life and your immediate surroundings as you will find that this helps you to understand the message that they are trying to bring you.
I hope this helps!
If you want me to let you know about your spirit animals I have the Spirit Animal Reading available at the shop!
Have a magickal day!
Much Love and Many Blessings,

The Transformative Energy of a Memory

original artwork by Elyssiumn



The Transformative Energy of a Memory

If I tell you to spend some time relaxing somewhere, do you have a place that immediately comes to mind? I know one of my favorite places to go is the ocean. One of these days I would love to live closer to it. I'm lucky enough to be just over an hour from it now. Think about the places that you find the most relaxing. It can be a travel destination, a favorite place in your home, a place that you enjoy going for a walk, even a place from your past.

Wait... a place from your past? For example, I remember when I was little, there was a section of bushes on the side of my yard that was my own personal fort. I was just little enough to fit into the spaces and while I'm sure they knew where I was, I thought I couldn't be found there. I can still smell the pine needles on the ground of my fort and see the view of my yard from my secret hiding place as I spent so much time there. It was a space that I made special.

Choose a place that you can call to memory whenever you wish easily. You may find that it's someplace that you honestly have only been once or experienced once. For instance, I drove my children up to Maine for a weekend right before I got divorced. It was the first time I had taken them on a weekend away on my own. It happened to be on the weekend of a Full Super Moon and I remember standing with them on the beach in the bit of snow that had gathered in the sand looking at the amazing light that Moon was casting over the ocean. It truly was magickal and I knew that night my life was going to change. You have those moments in life that just stay incredibly strong in your mind.

Think of at least one example of a memory of a place, more if you can. Choose one or two and make sure that you can recall them in vivid detail. Make a note on your phone or a note you can carry on you about those memories. Then whenever you feel stressed or worried you can call upon those memories and moments in your life. The energy will remain vivid and will be powerful to push out any unwanted energy you may be experiencing at the time. Just spend a moment with the memory visualizing it in as much detail as you can. When you are ready, take a deep breath of all the wonderful energy and exhale any residual stress or worries. The extra visualization will help move that unwanted energy.

Have a magickal day!

Much Love and Many Blessings,

Tarot Card of the Day



Dream time ~ Creation


“For the Aborigines of Australia, the dream time is a place before time and outside of time with which ancestral spirit beings came to Earth and gave all of Life its form. Once the work was done, these spirits remained in the very forms they created – including the animals, hills, stars, and other features of the land – and continue to be present today.

The dream time is an individual’s or group’s spiritual template, including songs and stories that have been handed down for at least 60,000 years – although Aborigines would say that they have existed since the beginning of time. In one such tradition, there is a creation story involving the didgeridoo, which is essentially a hollowed-out log that emits a droning sound when played.

In this card, we see that as Spirit Man plays the didgeridoo, the world is sung into existence. Note the various beings and colors and structures of the land that are being created, all carrying Spirit that has been breathed into them.

Close your eyes, tune in to your breathing, and allow yourself to sink deeply into the heart of the living creation that you are. As you notice your breath becoming steady and slightly deeper than usual, observe the urge within you that is begging to come forth in some creative action. Pay attention to any images, sounds, or feelings that beckon your awareness; and there you will find the key as to the manner in which to express this magnificent pulse.

Your breath is the crossover between Spirit and physical reality. Breathing comfortably and steadily helps you align yourself with Spirit, which then brings a clearer focus on what creative expression is preparing to be birthed through and from you. Discard any habitual thought patterns that would prevent the manifestation of what you are being prompted to bring forth. Allow yourself to take risks with this self-expression, and all of Creation will smile upon you.”

Today is a day to sink into your true self and give yourself time to create.  When you give yourself time to participate in the arts and being creative you give yourself time to work on the connection with who you truly are.  That creative energy is important for you in life as it allows you to release stress and anxiety and replace that energy with creative energy, hope and inspiration.  Take extra time today to participate in something creative and adjust your energy. 

Have a magickal day!

Much Love and Many Blessings,

Witch's Magick - Winter Solstice Reading

Book Your Reading

The longest night of the year is on the Winter Solstice and on that night we celebrate the return of our Sun God. As we welcome the Winter Energy that begins on this day we also welcome the return of longer days as each day past this we will gain additional sunlight. While a cold time of the year for many, it's also a time of strength and new beginnings much like the beautiful snow that will cover the ground for us soon.

On this, the darkest night of the year, we turn inward cultivating the wisdom of the High Priestess.

This reading will call upon the four corners to let you know where you stand in your life on this night.


East (Air/Swords)

- What is new, fresh, and exciting in your life?

- What is the best direction for you to take at this time?


South (Fire/Wands)

- What should you celebrate at this time?

- What can you share with others?


West (Water/Cups)

- What can you let go of at this time?

- What do you need to slow down on, or how do you slow down?


North (Earth/Pentacles)

- What can my dreams teach me?

- What do my elders want me to know?


Magick

- What is your strongest gift at this time?

- What should you focus your magickal work on at this time?


All readings are done via email. You will receive a PDF document via e-mail with the cards as I drew them and a detailed explanation of each card. Please keep in mind readings take longer for delivery during the holiday season. I will do the readings in the order I receive them.

The Emotional Playground for Empaths

**graphic by ngraph**

The Emotional Playground for Empaths

Many of you know that one of my huge passions in life is working with empaths.  I am blessed to work with so many of you and I couldn't imagine my life without all of you.  I also know that I have a lot of you that are new,  so I wanted to make sure that you had the resources that you need.

If you are just joining us and are unsure what an empath is the following article is a great place to start.: Are You An Empath? This is another great article:Understanding Being Empathic, What is an Empath? I have an entire collection of articles that you can grab on this page: Empath Articles

In the past I have gone into grounding and shielding, two skills that are critical for empaths. The next step is learning to recognize your own emotions. I know, it sounds like the most simple thing in the world, but you would be amazed how many emotions you can carry as an empath that aren’t even yours. It really is like an emotional playground out there. If you’re not careful you can wind up with a myriad of emotions that have nothing to do with you.

So let’s start sorting it out. What’s mine? What’s yours? When you feel intense emotions, we need to start sorting them out. If you woke up in a good mood, drove to work, and when you got out of your car in the parking lot you felt angry, is it you? Or could it be you drove past thirty cars on the way there, with people stuck at lights, and late to work and were experiencing mild cases of road rage. Take a deep breath. Think about why it is you feel angry right at that moment. If you cannot come up with a reason, chances are, it’s not yours. So give it back! Release the negative emotion back into the universe. Take a huge deep breath and say, “This is not my emotion, I release it.” Take another one and say, “I am happy and calm.” It can also be helpful to have a one word chant. I use the word “calm.” I will repeat it quietly to myself until I feel back to normal. If you have time to ground, by all means, ground. That is the best method to release the energy that you have picked up. However, many times, just realizing that it’s not yours, and allowing it to go away will do the trick.

Once you start getting in tune with your own emotions, you will be surprised at how many things can and will affect you if you let them. Just being aware of this can begin to make a huge difference in your like immediately. Use the simple breathing exercise above as often as you need to. With time, regular grounding, shielding and just plain old being aware your life will start to change for the better immediately.


Much Love and Many Blessings,

Holiday Readings Are Open!




Holiday Readings Are Open! 

 Holiday readings are officially open!  I have four special readings for Yule for you this year.  I will be bringing out the New Year ones in a couple of weeks.  You can see all of them below.

Yule Tarot Journey - It's back! The Yule Tarot Reading.  This has become a traditional holiday favorite reading.  Come on this year's journey or if you haven't gone before, find out why it's the most popular reading!  Go on a sleigh ride with me to visit the Ghosts of Christmas, have some special cookies, look to see who's under the Mistletoe for you and find out what gifts you received from the Goddess this Yule.  It's one of my favorite readings to work with as well.  It's the perfect Yule present for you or someone you love. 

Yule New Moon Reading -  Our final New Moon of 2018!  Our New Moon this month is only a couple of days away.  This Moon is really going to help set  the pace for what happens in 2019!  In addition to that I'm getting a very strong connection between this New Moon and the Full Moon.  Our Full Moon falls the day after Yule this year.  There is a very special bridge of energy between the New Moon and the Full Moon this month that will start the night of our New Moon.  This is definitely a New Moon reading you don't want to miss!  I will give you a coupon with this New Moon reading that will give you 25% off your Full Moon reading should you decide to purchase both.  That's a deal that can't be beat! 

New!!!! Holiday Spa Reading - I'm so excited about this reading! A Daily Magick member suggested this reading and I loved the idea so I'm bringing it to all of you.  I know this is a reading that all of you will love.  It will give you a special treat for the holidays.  This reading includes things like stones you want to work with, colors, scents etc.  It's the perfect reading to celebrate you!

Witch Way Winter Reading  -   This reading was a huge hit last year.  It is designed to really give you direction during the month of December for what you want to do to wrap up 2017 and prepare for 2018.

I have been getting a lot of questions about booking more than one reading in a short period of time.  As long as the readings are different then it's a non-issue. All of these readings are completely different so if you want to pick up two of them or even all three they all will give you different information.  You wouldn't want to do an Astrological Reading and then repeat it the following week as it's giving you the same information and not much would have changed.  Does that make sense?   I could combine all of them for one big deluxe reading but I wanted to give you options.  

Turnaround times on readings will be different this month.  Make sure you book early, it's really important to make sure you receive the readings that you want on time.  Please allow up to two weeks for delivery.   

I think that's everything! 

I hope you enjoy all the readings! I can't wait to work with you!

Much Love and Many Blessings,
