~ October 2021 ~

Hello y’all ~ just checking in to announce that I’m excited about a couple new projects and things currently brewing in my wootastical work cauldron including an upcoming this month-October event collaboration with Given Davis from Blooming Fire Healing ~~~ more details to come SOON with all that!!

it’s October already and that means Samhaintide is gonna be right around the corner SOON 🎃🍂🦇🦉🕯🔮🖤✨✨✨ … I’ve been already feeling the pull to hunker down, get cozy, bake, and create in a variety of ways. Halloween aka All Hallows’ and Shadowfest is one of my several favorite times of the year. Last night, I watched the movie Coco as one of my activities related to tuning energetically into with the ancestors and magic of the veils and portals thinning right now. I’ll be most likely making more apple peach cobbler as well as working with my hearth altar in the coming days as well as sitting with the tarot decks who’d want to energetically support y’all’s readings/sessions during this month-October and next month-November.

Oh, how time non-linearity flows these days…. Mercury retrograde in libra ♎️ is still happening til October 18th…. so, hang in there, folx… we’re almost there!

The hunter’s moon aka October full moon in Aries ♈️ 🌕 is happening on October 20th (more on that later)…. I’ll be offering full moon 🌕 readings online through the technological portals of Zoom, FaceTime, and Google duo apps. Half hour readings are $65 and Full hour readings are $125 ~ along with an added $1 fee. Payments are greatly appreciated and received via PayPal and Venmo. All readings/sessions are accessible with ASL (American Sign Language) and are deaf/hoh friendly.

The artwork in this tarot card is done by Mickie Mueller. The name of this tarot deck is Well Worn Path deck.

I hope y’all are doing well and regulating y’all bodies in good ways as we all are navigating some pretty intense and wild astrological weather 🌎✨✨✨ please do feel welcome to drop me a line if a reading is in order and I’ll be honored to hold that sacred magical space with you. Blessings of this Samhaintide season 🍂🎃🔮🦇🦌🦉🕯🖤

*** Dark ~ New Moon in Libra ♎️ ***


it’s currently the dark moon 🌙 phase; soon, it’ll transit into the new moon phase around 4:05am PST; 7:05am EST. Lots of cosmic energy has been swirling up and around with 7 planets retrograde including mercury retrograde in libra. I’ve found this MRx cycle to be a interesting one; mixed with good and strange energies and moments at times. … I’m feeling grateful for Kate Mura’s new moon tarot group coming up in several hours online zoom. I feel good giving myself this intentional community space connection as well as aligning with the dark new moon energy in the wee hours. I was born into this lifetime during the dark new moon time so it feels extra deep for me, energetically.

Y’all can check out Kate’s current and upcoming tarot and magical events via Instagram: @consciencethetravelingmoth ~ her new moon tarot group is live captioned accessible for deaf and hoh folx ~

In the next couple days, it’ll go down to 5 planets retrograde instead of 7 planets. I’d encourage continued practice of grounding rituals, going with the flow of things, breath work, journaling, meditation, and whatever else that is supportive ~ especially with the awareness of mercury retrograde not being officially done until October 18; Mercury transits direct station on the 18th of October. I’d give it another week or so for Mercury to pick up speed and catchup to the flow of things.

Also! It’s Samhain season already!! I’m feeling the energy swirling up for this and the veils are thinning fast. I’m offering readings specifically to the Ancestors/Samhaintide portals and the Full Moon 🌕 (in Aries ♈️) on October 20th. There’s several things brewing in my cauldrons and I’m excited to share soon ✨✨✨

I offer gift certificates for purchase as well as for events, etc. Please do inquire if y’all are interested in that.

~ August musings, part one ~

Greetings to y’all,

Time has been a odd creature lately…. I’ve been going more through the flows, ebbs, tides of non-linear time and it’s clearly reflected here. I’m choosing to honor that and allow what needs to percolate, gestate, and weave through current threads and puzzle pieces rather than following the capitalism (“expected”) method of being active everyday online here my website as well on Instagram. Most likely, y’all have seen me sharing through my Instagram stories and some posts here and there. I felt it was time now to checkin and let y’all know a bit of what’s been going on in my worlds….

I was recently honored with the opportunity to co-support leading the Lughnasad aka Lunasa ritual for the That Witch’s Life Patreon. So exciting and it was a magical and powerful convening of energies! If y’all are on Patreon, then go support them and receive some magic!! ✨✨✨✨ SO good!! Also, you can follow their Instagram page: @thatwitchslifepodcast ~

Lughnasad aka Lunasa is an Irish/Celtic holy day; it honors the first harvest and opening of autumn 🍂 season. The second harvest is Autumn Equinox in September then the third/final harvest is Samhain aka Shadowfest and All Hallows’ in October. I have to say, it’s a relief to start feeling the autumn 🍂 energies swirling already …. even if I am experiencing big concerns related to climate change, wildfire/smoke season, and other current life related things. Still, I remind myself that it is key to remember: it’s okay to grieve what needs to be let go of, composted, released… while appreciating, honoring, and celebrating the beauty and magic of first harvest and what that feels like to me currently.

The most recent cosmic swirling energy: Dark new moon 🌙 in Leo ♌️ along with the 🦁 Lion’s Gate Portal…. the peak of the Lion’s Gate Portal tends to occur on August 8, every year. This year, it’s happening at the same time as the Perseids meteors …. the peak of the Perseids is during August 11-13, 2021 ~ this week! I’m planning to do a Perseids viewing adventure on the night of Aug 12, Thursday….. I feel excited, curious, nervous about this and it’ll be my first time to witness this!

I recently relocated to a new dwelling residence in early July 2021 and am still unpacking; am still in progress of finding my connections with this new hearth space. So grateful for Kenton park right across the street for a grounding space with the trees 🌲 there. Hopefully, I’ll have a very very very small house-hearth warming party sometime soon….. so, I can ground down more into the hearth space and weave into the containers I want here in this new residence space.

I’ve recently started participating as a student in a new class: Jewish Magic and Ritual; it’s both online and in-person. My teacher, colleague, and mentor Rebekah Erev is amazing! Their work really speaks for itself and I’m really savoring this experience and opportunity so far. I’m also partaking in the second round of their Embodying the Hebrew Letters. Both courses are accessible with note takers and ASL interpreters!! If y’all are curious about Rebekah and their work, then please check out their Instagram: @rebekaherevstudio and/or follow them on Patreon!

I’m also teaching a basic level ASL (American sign language) class through Visually Speaking (deaf owned biz) with an online classes remote teaching style. It’s the first time I’ve been doing this in a very long time so it’s been a interesting and good learning experience so far! My first class will complete by August 24, then a short break… then I will return teach the same course in September 2021. The class is a 8-week format. If y’all are interested, then go check out the Visually Speaking website: www.visuallyspeaking.info ~

There’s more thoughts to come…. so, stay tuned!!

Crescent moon 🌙 blessings,
