Ripples, Swells, and Jingle Bells

It seemed like a small kindness, at the time, decades ago, buying a gift for some kids who didn’t have much. But the youngest one contacted me later. All grown up, she was spending her time working to give gifts to kids who didn’t have much. She told me that long ago gift had been […]

As above, so below, duh

As this year winds down, I’ve begun trying to truly follow my intuition and heart, and do what I’m most compelled to do each day, regardless of whether it seems productive or not. Mostly, these days, it does not feel like anything I would call “work.” Part of me is afraid of going broke, but […]

66,000 Pounds in NY Harbor

Everyone is talking about the humpback whale in New York Harbor, breaching and tail-slapping in front of the Statue of Liberty, and of course, being an everyday Mystic, I immediately wanted to explore the metaphysical symbolism. This is not a new thing. Whales get into the harbor from time to time and usually get back out […]

Word for the Year

A group of friends and I have a tradition. We each choose a kind of a focus word for the new year. Usually it’s a word we think of as a goal. Something we want to do more of or do better Last year I chose “Balance.” It seems to me, at the end of […]

Winter, Solitude, and Feeling Better

It struck me today how we in the northern hemisphere are entering winter, the dark part of the year, at the same time the pandemic is forcing us to become even more isolated.  For the first time in my memory, we won’t be doing a whole family get-together for Thanksgiving or Christmas. And I thought […]

WTAF is really going on here?

I know what you’re thinking… The world is off the rails. Mankind is like a group of monkeys crammed into the seats of a speeding roller coaster with a crucial section missing up ahead. Everything has gone crazy.  But none of that is true. Things have not gone off the rails. But there is something important […]

Advanced Magic: Circle Casting

A very wise teacher once told me, “First you learn every magical tool’s use, placement, and energy. You learn where to stand and what to say and how to move. You learn which herbs and oils and candles go with which spells. But ultimately, you learn that you never needed any of that.” It’s like […]

Numerology and the American Rennaissance

What do the numbers have to say about some upcoming events? I’ve done some numerological number crunching to come up with some answers.  In numerology, one adds numbers together to get a single digit, then interprets the meaning of that digit. It also works with words, you just convert each letter to a number, then […]

Balance is an Illusion

Blessed Mabon! Last evening, I captured the final sunset of summer. The Autumnal Equinox takes place at 9:30 a.m. Eastern Time this very morning (22 September.)   Some celebrate the equinoxes as times of balance, and use their energy to try to re-balance themselves and their lives. I’ve been mulling on this and coming to […]

Can’t Meditate? Try Basking

I’ve been on a tear lately about how important it is to get in a few minutes of meditation every day if we possibly can. And for good reason. It’s the human being’s equivalent to downloading the latest updates. When our mind is quiet, we have no resistance. When we have no resistance, we bob […]
