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……
