7/31/17 – Magical Praxis: Trust Yourself (Divination 1)

June 26, 2017

You see a bunch of psychics and they all tell you you’ll get the thing you want and then… you don’t. Every five minutes you get a new sign that you and your beloved are supposed to be together buuuuut… s/he doesn’t return your phone calls. You have a strong intuition that you should do a certain thing — move to a new country, quit your job, talk to a specific agent about your book — but when you do……

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…

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.

How I Became the Oracle of Los Angeles — (part 1)

October 3, 2016

When I was 19 I had big dreams, but no idea what to do to accomplish them. My sense was that basically what you had to do was get involved with life. For me that meant: Moving to San Francisco on a whim and living in a big Edwardian house in the Western Addition with a chaos magician-cum-Big 5 Sporting Goods assistant manager; a clinically depressed baristo with a Leonard Cohen obsession; a speed addict who was hearing voices that…
