Ascending From Shadow | A Tarot Spread

I've not always been this bold or this forthcoming. In fact, I was downright terrified for most of my life. In fact, if you told me five years ago that I'd be running my own tarot business and creating workshops and courses to help others lean into their fears, I'd have said you were crazy. … Continue reading Ascending From Shadow | A Tarot Spread

5 Signs You Should Get a Tarot Reading

Modern tarot is a far cry from the parlor trick antics it was once associated with. Gone are the turbans, the crystal balls, the sleight of hand. In their place are sage bundles, aura crystals, and the careful consideration of psychology, self-care, and social justice.

Birthday Ritual Ideas for Witches and Woo-folk

Full disclosure: I cried on my birthday five years in a row.  I was smack in the middle of the wilderness years of my twenties, and I wasn't too keen on the path my life was taking.

I've been a witch for three years now. Before that, I was a proud atheist, but I was still trying to discover the meaning of life and find my place in the vast web of existence.

Closing the Door on Bad Habits

The pathway of healing is not a wild, untamed path. It is a manicured path, a watered path,  a tended path. The sweet bloom of integration can only unfurl under certain conditions; as Miles of Sideways puts it, "Pinot is very temperamental.

Traversing the Wormhole of the “Culinary Underbelly”: An Exploration of the Magician

In his book, Kitchen Confidential, chef/author/travelogue god Anthony Bourdain reveals in shocking detail the twenty-five years he spent as a chef and cook in the "culinary underbelly" of the restaurant industry. As one would expect, there are palatable tales: his incomparable dining experience at The French Laundry, for one.

Releasing the Anchor: An Exploration of the Five of Cups

In 2005, I got on a plane and flew to Scotland. The cabin was cramped and the pressure made me achy; I flooded my senses with artists and playlists, but the songs (dear friends, now) couldn't distract me from the feeling that I'd left a limb in my homeland. I'd worked my ass off to arrive at … Continue reading Releasing the Anchor: An Exploration of the Five of Cups
