I am posting these observations as a reminder and invitation to be gentle and kind with yourself and others as we navigate some challenging times. I am noticing and hearing in general, as well as out picturing in the election climate, an over stimulation for many in all aspects of their life and work. I am seeing this in my work place, dynamics between individuals breaking down and unproductive exchanges occurring. I am seeing this in conversations and dynamics within our communities. I am seeing this in my personal relationships. And, we all are seeing this on the local, national and global stages. 

Please consider this as a time to hold space for calming, clarity, compassion and an intention towards sending and receiving only that which is for the highest good of all concerned with harm to none. Please consider consciously “checking yourself” when you are feeling moments of agitation and quite frankly short circuiting. Hit the pause button before sending “that” email or speaking what is colored by the abundance of illusion being generated on all fronts right now.

I encourage you to not allow yourself to get caught up in the maelstrom of negativity and aggression that is very accessible to feed on and brings you into a state that is reactionary without giving thought to the larger impact as the volatile waters ripple out. 

Please take great care to keep yourselves anchored in those things that give you joy and are supportive of you remaining centered and grounded. Be in nature. Spend time with your loved ones that nurture you and for whom you can be a point of respite and renewal. Take a break from social media and the news, and don’t berate yourself as burying yoour head in the sand. Remember the directive always is to “put your mask on first” aka. anchor and ground in healthy engagement, if you wish to be of service to humanity.

Hold space for your highest self and let the rest of it blow past you. There is plenty of ongoing work to be done, feed and bolster the best “you” for the long haul.

Blessings for your well-being…R

The Blood Moonand the Ancestors of Samhain

I had promised this as a post our astrological 14-Days countdown and as is often the case in all matters magickal/spiritual, the timing could not have been more supportive of the work accomplished in those 14-days.

This November moon is often called the Blood Moon, and the lunar tides that emanate from its waxing carry a reminder of the waters of our blood. This is the blood that connects us to our Ancestors. This is the blood that carries the memories of our lineage, both biologically and collectively as beings of humanity. And, the promise of this moon is one of using its energies to bring into manifestation a more refined way of instinctual being.

Welcome Samhain! Welcome Me in All of My Parts!

November 7.20225:36am (EST)

Sun in Scorpio

Waxing Moon in Taurus

All Hail the Blessings of Samhain! 
All Hail My Transformation!

I have claimed all that I AM
I have woven a new journey of MY Re-Making

How I choose to move forward
How I choose to be in the world
How I choose to express my humanity
How I choose to create from the exhale of inspiration
How I choose to step into the mantle of my Higher nature

All of these and more are mine to bring into collaboration
With none being more than the other and none remaining stagnant

On this day of Samhain I reach into the Swirlings 
And celebration of my Life transformed.

Today we celebrate astrological Samhain and allow ourselves the opportunity to cycle back to the beginning of this journey 14-days ago and where…

All Paths Have Led Back to Me

November 6.2022

We have arrived at the eve before Astrological Samhain. And, what a fews days this will be standing in the potency of Samhain’s arrival and on the day of its after-glow, a Full Moon and lunar Eclipse on Election Day! And, as we ride the cresting of this Sabbat’s energies, take note that the days following Samhain are those that will carry you through the darkening and time of deeper introspection culminating with the Winter Solstice.

These are the days of revelation and diving deeply into the veils of mystery and if there is courage enough, choosing a less trod path awakening a sense of curiosity and desire for what “could be”.  There is no right or wrong in the path of your choosing because ultimately all paths lead back to you, in all of your ways of Being as subtle…

The Samhain Tree

November 2.20222

This Is Not Impartial, In the Least

Today’s post is focused on one of my absolute favorite topics- the Hermetic Tree of Life. The beauty of this discipline is its ability to remain relevant to any subject matter and its innate potency urging the practitioner of its principles to evolve, grow and become more present in all of their parts of Being.

Branching Out

The writing that follows is a musing on the energies of Samhain’s Veils and the Qabalistic Tree of Life. It does not require that you are well versed in the Qabalistic principles and there is a link at the end if you want to know more about the Tree. What I would invite you to do is to allow the words to wash over you in their first reading. Allow to arise whatever presents for you. St for…

Day Eight of 14-Days of Samhain

A Witch's Sacred Journey

The Eagle’s Light in A Visionary Moon

November 1.20222

Sun in Astrological Scorpio

Waxing Moon in Astrological Aquarius

Today, we are going to revisit the energy of the Samhain solar tides of astrological Scorpio and the First Quarter Waxing Moon of astrological Aquarius.

As we engage in the work of today, and being ever-mindful of the intention of using the gifts of Samhain’s energies for personal transformation, I invite you to begin with these declarations:

I see with the clarity and precision of the Eagle, exact and purposeful in the beating of its wings as it selects its prey of nourishment

I allow to arise the waters of wisdom that are poured onto the thirsty ground of my understanding

I trust the emptiness that creates the space for my Spirit to soar in ecstasy

I move with intention towards those actions that affirm my calling to the Phoenix that renders…

At the Heart of the Matter

October 30.2022

The work that you choose today will set the stage for how you will navigate the accumulated thought forms of traditional Samhain (aka. Halloween). I am returning to a staple post that I have used consistently on October 30th and that of standing at Hecate’s crossroads.

The Gnosis of A Courageous Heart

Today’s intention is held in the space of heart and the deep awareness that is available to you as you dive deeply into the nexus of your knowingness. I invite you to stand in the healing waters of these declarations:

I am cradled in the courage of surrender to my highest heart

I am carried on the tides that ebb and flow in truth, illusion and the polarized lessons of each

I willfully engage that which I am most uncomfortable with

I clearly see that which is the resolution of…

Deep in the Bones

October 29.2022

Today is Day 5 of 14-Days of Samhain posting. In keeping with the numerology* of the number “5”, let’s stir things up and create a deeper connection to the wisdom of our bones….

A popular theme for Samhain is that of skeletons. These represent those who have shed their corporeal forms and moved beyond the veils. They are meant to be spooky and mysterious and although of this manifest plane, also somehow animated by the ephemera of the subtle realms. Today, I would invite you to move deeply into your bones and their wisdom as a living being.

Let’s begin our explorations acknowledging the power and strength of our skeletal foundation and the wisdom held in this organic scaffolding:

My bones echo the clarity defined form

My bones uphold the beauty and grace of my manifest…

14-Days of Samhain-Day Two

A Witch's Sacred Journey

Embracing the Challenges of the Ancestors

Embracing the Challenges of the Ancestors

Let’s continue our discussion of the unique layers of expression that astrological Scorpio offers. Our focus today is on the “Scorpion” and one of its many potential alignments with the communications with our ancestors. We remain in the aura of last night’s Scorpio New Moon and today the moon remains for the entirety of the day in Scorpio’s grasp.

The Triune Nature of Scorpio

Scorpio is unique in that it is the only of the twelve (12) astrological signs that expresses itself in three very distinct ways; the Scorpion, the Eagle and the mythical Phoenix. Many mistakenly think of Scorpio as being a Fire sign, rather than water, largely because of its active and catalytic nature. And, this assignation is not that far off, since all of the elements contain within themselves each of the other three (3)…

Day 1 Begins of 14-Days of Samhain. Enjoy….

A Witch's Sacred Journey

All days and celebrations of the year are special, but for many Samhain offers the opportunity for deepening connections to the beloved ancestors, to the very overt changes in the seasons of nature and space of awareness for a marking of transition from one year’s cycle of growth. If we offer our intention to our Greater Work within this potent cycle as it flows into the next-death begets life and Spirit calls to Spirit in reciprocity. For some Samhain is considered the start of the Witch’s New Year and a cycle of flow that is ushered in as the culmination of planting, growth and harvest knowing that death heralds the promise of new light at Yule.

Samhain reaches into the darkest parts of our psyche and offers the potential to bring into the light those fiercer aspects that will serve our future growth if we have the courage to claim…
