12/10/2021 ~ queer maker’s pop up market ~

👋 Hello y’all,

just checking in quickly …. I recently did my very first in-person table event at the delightful community event held at Open Hand Health Clinic! They held space for a queer makers popup market and I was honored to be one of the folx there for Friday, Dec. 10, 2021 ~ alongside with Given Davis of Blooming Fire Healing. We both offered tarot readings 😊✨✨✨

It was lovely to be back in community space with folx and doing work that I love to offer! To be honest, this was the very first in-person event that I’ve done in a little more than two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic situation. I was so grateful to see how the safety protocols were in place for the space and the comfort of folx as well as feeling cautious still in some ways. I truly valued this opportunity!

Please understand that this doesn’t mean that I will be immediately opening up to full on basis of in-person readings etc ~ local to PDX area…. I’m still feeling it all out and navigating as best according to what my current capacity is at the moment. Thankees for understanding and it’s appreciated 😊🙏✨✨✨

With the winter holiday season already being in full swing, it is important that we all practice even more compassion, empathy, flexibility, and patience with each other since we are in the very last month of 2021 and then heading into a third year of the pandemic situation as well as calendar year 2022 ✨✨✨

I’ll be offering an collaborative virtual event with Given Davis of Blooming Fire Healing on December 19, Sunday, for winter ❄️ solstice magical readings! The info will be released on social media soon … So, remain tuned for these details 😊🎄❄️🕯️✨🎄

~ 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.

Y’all can follow me on Instagram: @heartofoak8 ~ blessings ✨🌙🍂🦇🦉🎃🔮🍂

Hello folx,

It’s almost autumn equinox time… also known as Mabon. Fall equinox is officially on Wednesday, September 22nd. Prior to that, there’s the Pisces full moon on Monday, September 20…. at 4:55pm PST/7:55pm EST. The moon will transit into Aries soon after that around 8:13pm PST/11:13 pm EST. (***Referred time zones from Llewellyn’s Witches datebook 2021 ***)

I’m excited to announce that I’ll be participating as panelist on the MeWe Fairs Panel on September 20; the same day as the full moon! The topic we will be sharing is about the Autumn faeries and working with their energies. This will be ASL interpreted. It’s FREE to attend as always online for this type of panel community space; sliding scale costs for asking a question per the guidelines with the event. Register at the website: www.mewefairs.com for the online panel 😊✨✨
