New Moon In Scorpio

November 17, 2017

Scorpio is a fixed water sign. The water element is all about passion, emotion, SOUL. It’s the energy that moves in us. That clears away the debris. That rocks us to sleep. That blesses us. And because the energy of Scorpio is fearless, because it is dauntless, because it gives the deepest of all f**ks about everything, it is the sign of the healer. Scorpio energy takes us into the depths, it turns up the muck and sucks it away…

Unexpected Beauty

November 6, 2017

“Let your hook always be cast; in the pool where you least expect it, there will be a fish.” I thought of this quote today, and in my mind I remembered it as a Japanese Haiku. When I looked the quote up and found out it was Ovid I have to admit I was disappointed. Dude gets enough air time already, you know? But still the fact I was thinking of the quote proves his point. Fish appear everywhere, even…

Cleansing Bath

October 19, 2017

SAFE SPACE CLEANSING BATH Call in your spirits and your guardians. Light candles (white for clearing, green for heart mending, blue for healing, sun yellow to sooth the mind).

Infuse a cup of warm coconut milk with a pinch of cinnamon and clove for protection and exorcism, a pinch of ginger for power, and a spoonful of honey for healing. Hold the cup in your hands and visualize…

Mercury Direct

September 12, 2017

Mercury goes direct today. Phew! Finally. Mercury is the energy of the in between spaces. The passageways. The connecting valves. The communication and nervous systems. When Mercury is retrograde, those in between spaces might feel vast, as as Mercury moves direct we have an opportunity to bridge the gaps. Look back over the past three weeks and notice what communication difficulties you’ve had. When Mercury is retrograde, we are encouraged to look at old communication issues and breakdowns, recurring challenges,…

Eclipse In Leo

August 23, 2017

I’m already feeling how the eclipse blew open some of my blocks in unexpected ways. In fact, it’s helping me adjust some blocks I didn’t even know I had. The eclipse fell in Leo, emphasizing breakthroughs in creativity, self realization, and personal integrity. Yesterday we entered Virgo season, indicating we should shift our focus to the practical aspects of living. Now is the time to start integrating and assimilating some of the breakthroughs and unsettled energy triggered by our Leo…

Philosophies of Divination

July 27, 2017

I developed one of my main philosophies about divination and magic as a museum educator. At MOCA, we didn’t try to tell museum visitors what the art meant; we tried to help them have a richer experience of looking at the work. As an oracle, I have a similar intention. When I perform a divination, I’m not trying to tell my clients what to do, or what decisions they should make. Instead, I’m trying to help my clients have a…

Overcoming Trauma

July 17, 2017

I had severe asthma as a child , so bad my lips would turn blue and you could see my heart beating through my purple unicorn shirt from across the room. Sometimes I’d have to go to the hospital and be hooked up to an oxygen tank. The asthma found it’s way into my body through series of traumas: a 3rd degree burn across my back, my parents divorce, other stuff I’ll leave up to your imagination. Around the same…

Claim Confidence

July 13, 2017

So many of our most painful obstacles have to do with our confidence level: — Writer’s Block (lack of confidence that you have anything valuable to say) — Intimacy Issues (lack of confidence that you’ll be understood or chosen) — Money Issues (lack of confidence that you can or deserve to be able to support yourself) — Body Issues (lack of confidence that we have a right to be who we are) Personally, I believe that confidence is our natural…

Witch Wisdom

June 26, 2017

I found myself sobbing in the car as I was driving to my final day of healer training with one of my mentors, David Elliott, this past weekend. The work has a way of bringing stuff up. I was triggered when I, for some mysterious reason, started thinking about what a shitty waitress I was at age 24. I started thinking about this other waitress who never messed up the orders or spilled drinks, and within minutes I connected my…

Finding Your Voice

April 2, 2017

For me, a major part of the process of becoming a witch has been about recognizing the worthiness of my own voice and experience. I’ve always admired people with conviction, people who trust their stories are worth telling. Sometimes when out in public, someone will ask me a question about magic and my mind will go blank. Throat clenched, a feeling of panic will rise. What if I have nothing to say? What if what I say is irrelevant or…
