*** December 2023 ***

Hello y’all, checking in quick …. It’s felt very much dystopian lately due to the current multiple global crisis and upheavals occurring.

I’m grateful, honored, humbled, and excited to announce that I’ll be vending my Magicky readings at the Yule/ Winter Solstice ~ Faerie Faire, located at the local PDX venue ~ bossanova ballroom ~ for tomorrow/later today, Sunday, December 17! Come sit at my table and visit for a spell, receive a reading, enjoy a good chat, and perhaps purchase a gift certificate. I’m looking forward to connecting with y’all there 🔮✨✨✨❄️❄️❄️✨✨✨✨🔮

December 23, 2023 ~ I’m offering my readings during the pop up market at Queen Meb shop. It’ll be a lovely time!!

A quick hello and checking in …. Certainly, a lot has occurred since the last time I wrote here in May, several months ago ~ We’re now just a week in after Autumn Equinox 🍂🍁🍂🍁 and the moon has been in Pisces ♓️ the past few days… Soon, the moon will in Aries ♈️ and a full moon 🌕 this Friday!! This is the last super moon of 2023; just before we start eclipse season in October ~ spooky season just right around the corner …. Pumpkins 🎃, bats 🦇, 👻 ghosts, ancestors, and much more 🍁🍂🍁🍂

Autumn Equinox was the second harvest; the third harvest is Samhain aka All Hallows/ Shadowfest / Halloween ~ more on this soon ✨✨✨

I’m grateful that it’s now starting to actually feel like autumn 🍂🍁🍂🍁 season; earlier today was the first actual full on downpour rain 🌧️🌧️🌧️ and it was interesting to see the shift in the weather and energies overall. The trees, plants, and earth definitely need the water!

May 2023 ✨✨✨

Hello!! It’s already May 9; time certainly is a strange and wild creature!! As it is, I’ve not posted lately in the past couple months since they’ve held quite alot and so has life in general… This recent full moon 🌕 lunar eclipse in Scorpio ♏️ (last week Friday) was definitely a intense one! The month of May continues to have many huge cosmic energy swirls and Astro shiftings; remember to ramp up your self care rituals & grounding practices as well as being open to what y’all are being presented with during this time.

There’s certainly some big movements happening in the next couple weeks including my upcoming solar return circle day season/birthday ✨✨✨✨ I’ll share more soon!

Blessings of this spring transition time to summer 💐🌷🪻🌸🌼🌻🪷💐

Hello y’all, just checking in …. its been quite a minute since I’ve shared anything on here. My instagram account has had a bit more activity out of late… Thankees for the patience with the rhythms of my sharing things on here. Yesterday, i shared these four pics on my Instagram account; its a very new original poem/ written piece of mine ~ I was honored, grateful, and humbled with the invitation from the MN Deaf Queer community and their Zoom panel event for National Coming Out Day (Oct. 11th, 2022) to perform this poem of mine. The recording link will be shared in time with me. Also, yesterday night, past the witching hour ~ in the wee hours ~ the scorpio dark new moon and solar eclipse happened. I shared this picture post on my instagram as part of my recommitment to/with my writing, poetry, creative work/collaborative projects, etc. It felt right with the timing to release that online to be Seen.

Also! I’m excited and grateful to be participating again with the Black Cat Conjure panel, facilitated by Laureli Shimayo of the MeWe Fairs/Panels. I will be offering a special during this event. This panel will be ASL interpreted and hosted on Zoom, when? This week Thursday, October 27, 2022 ~ at 5:30-8:30pm PST. Live captioning will also be available as part of accessibility.

~ July 2022 musings #1 ~

Hello folx!

Things have definitely ebbed and flowed since the last time I popped into here…. Much definitely has been shifting; I’ve taken a bit of a pause with things in general … Just checking in real quick then back to my pause of things…. This recent full moon in Capricorn ♑️was quite intense!

A bit of the current Astro weather:

The moon currently is in Aries – not good for important big decisions; good for sparking ideas and creative energies; Venus just transited into Cancer; that water energy opens up much more deeper within/of the heart space; vulnerability, connection, communication, community, sense of home/hearth, holding deeper the instinctual of things, and how to activate/work/navigate/relate with these things ~ indeed a shift in the current cosmic energies ~ Venus will remain in Cancer until mid august. Later this week, the moon will transit into Taurus; that’s on Wednesday this week. A little nudge: remember that the moon tends to transit between each zodiac sign every two to two and half days or so- ish…

Also!! Leo season will be starting around july 22/23. Next week’s new dark moon is in Leo ~ on July 28th, thursday. I’ll be offering Astrology related readings for Leo season and for Venus in Cancer/other cosmic transits. There will be gift certificates available for purchase ~ they’re great as birthday gifts!!! 😊✨✨

More soon! Blessings! 🙏✨✨✨🧚🏼‍♂️🧚🏼‍♀️
