Hey Jealousy! — Oracle Appears in The Millions

June 15, 2017

Morrissey wasn’t wrong when he said, “We hate it when our friends become successful.” I don’t think there’s a creative person alive who hasn’t felt that pang when one of their friends lands some big show, or some grant, or some great publishing deal. Jealousy double hurts because a) you want something you don’t have, and b) you feel guilty for envying a friend who finally got something THEY wanted. If this experience sounds familiar, you need to read this…

Workshop: Writing Is Magic – May 13, 2017

May 8, 2017

Many artists create themselves. We are born middle class, or broke. We don’t choose our nationality, our gender or our race. Even though I’m sure many folks I know would consider me New Age, I don’t believe we choose our parents in some pre-birth akashic social contract. We get dropped into life from the mysterious Beyond. Our karma was created by our ancestors, we don’t get a choice in it. When we arrive here on planet earth, our only recourse,…

2/27/17 Magical Praxis: Crystal Kink

February 20, 2017

  Crystals find you when you’re ready. In my case, like every good witch, I liked crystals. In New Age shops, I flirted with translucent milky green calcite, made of the same stuff as mollusks. I’d fondle aragonite, fingering its russet star clusters and then coyly walk away. But there comes a point in every art witch’s life when she tips from a mild crush on crystals to a full blown stalker level obsession. That’s when you know crystals have…

Creative Blocks, Begone! Working with the Full Moon in Leo + Eclipse

February 10, 2017

Full Moon in Leo + Eclipse asks you: “How can you overcome the material circumstances obstructing the full expression of your creativity?” The Moon is the moody, swiftly changing, silvery being that pulls tide, that coaxes our physical cycles of fertility, that turns us into werewolves, that illuminates our darkest hours. Our Moon is our mood. And when the Moon is in Leo, she’s waving the banner of creativity and courage and asking us to follow her lead. Leo is…

Tarot for 2017: X Wheel of Fortune

January 2, 2017

Tarot for 2017 – X Wheel Of Fortune Was it fate that Donald Trump was elected president? Some of my friends say that if he hadn’t been elected people wouldn’t be nearly as galvanized as they are now. Maybe horrors like Trump appear to wake us up and shake us out of our complacency. Some say that maybe, ultimately his election will end up being a good thing, because it will inspire us to change. Our destiny, our fate, is…
