The Door Unlocked: The Eight of Wands

Position 3, Past An unexpected thing started to happen to me as I began this project of pulling cards and writing about them. It became apparent that I was doing  a reading for myself. I think that it’s important to understand the self-referential relationship between reader and cards if we are ever going to get good at this. We see ourselves ….

Ch-ch-ch-changes Two of Disks (Pentacles)

Position 2, Situation I know that some of us have a distaste for Aleister Crowley and there are some good reasons for that. His Thoth Deck was the one I learned on and I am partial to it. The art is fantastic. It’s all very intentional but emotionally evocative at the same time. My friends and clients always pick up the ….

The Hanged Man

  Position 1. Self When do I see the Hanged Man? When I have no control over a situation whatsoever, there he is. If I am having difficulty pulling the trigger on something–a project, a breakup, quitting a job, applying for jobs, there he is. He often comes when I am sick but I don’t perceive him as a warning ….

Stick Season Sunrise

Drowsy words lifted against a predawn sky, which is pregnant and may at any moment break; rivulets of cantaloupe and rasp- berry and all shades of ripened fruit. (The moon a photocopied ghost in The forgotten part of the sky.) Or the dim gray cast may latch on, misting red and orange leaves holding on in defiance of winter. It ….

Visualization and Healing Trauma

Suffering from PTSD mostly sucks. Almost 100% of it is pure hell. There is exactly one thing that I have gained: the ability to fully enter my visualizations. Now let me throw out a whole bunch of disclaimers. 1) Not a doctor. 2) Not a therapist. 3) You should have a doctor and a therapist if you have or think you ….

The Thin Veil

It took Samhain for me to see how much I’ve changed. Through my practice I have learned to be less reactive, more present in the moment and closer to the things I hold dear. All of these things have helped my psychologically, taming my PTSD symptoms and have made it easier to breathe. Last Samhain, I was so desperate to ….

The Unicorn’s Surprise

I was sifting through a tub of junk jewelry today when I found a pewter unicorn pendant. I’m not sure of the metal but my guess is stainless steel. It’s lovely and not at all tacky. I assume it must be lucky to find such an item but despite believing in magic, I’m really not superstitious. It is however meaningful. I ….

Let the Sunshine In – A Simple Happiness Spell

Sunday, the day on which we celebrate the sun, is an excellent time for happiness magick. Maybe it’s a good time to pick up a habit that may help you through the SAD season. ***This is not a substitute for a good therapist and medical interventions that have been deemed necessary for you. But all of us sufferers know that sometimes we ….

Kali Demon Cleanse

This post contains a suggestion for a visualization technique that I have used to reduce the symptoms of PTSD. It is not meant to cure or diagnose. It can be used by magical practitioners and non-practitioners alike. I left the wording vague. Meeting Darkness With the Dark I have found that sometimes my darkness is so thick that only other ….
