Reflections on an old blog post

Sometimes the most poignant lessons come from the ones you have already written. Sometimes the words that you wrote ages ago can reveal to you how far you have come, and how much you have offered before. These old teachings have the honor of coming from you, and following through you to become again. Lately, […]

2 of Swords and Eucalyptus

I am always thinking of correlations between the tarot cards and the world, reducing and extrapolating the meaning of a card into a synergistic relationship with something else. This could be a poem, a quote, a movie character, a crystal, or an essential oil. I have recently started using a lot more oils in my […]

“Besides, the world isn’t split into good people and death eaters. We’ve got both light and dark inside us.” ~ Sirius Black Now that we have taken a moment to look inward to gaze at the context of our guides, and how they gently shaped our forms with metaphors that felt like fingers, it is […]
