    Meditation: Discover Your Magic Space

    As mentioned in last week’s post, I said there would be a meditation coming to discover your magic space. Getting to know the scenery, what the space looks like, and what is in it. But what the heck is a Magic Space? How is this different from like an altar in my room? The Magic Space I am talking about here, is not a physical space, but a place within your energy that you can do all your magical workings from. For some people, this also exists on the astral plane and it acts much like a home base for them there. But for the purposes of this blog post…

    V. The Hierophant You happen upon a community. Seeking still answers to your burning questions. Members of this community all direct you towards a single building.

You knock on the door. The Hierophant answers and invites you in before you are even able to begin asking your questions. They offer you a seat in their home. They give you a smile and silence. One question in particular rises to the surface of your mind.…

    Lumina Tarot: III. The Empress

    III: The Empress The field is wide and far reaching. Animals and humans alike work the earth as an individual wooden staff walks around assisting the various groups. They always seem to find the ones that need it the most and water appears out of thin air in their hands for those who are thirsty. Their knees are dirty. Their feet are bare. And their smile lights up the whole field. You would expect someone who has been standing in the sun working hard to smell like sweat, but this individual smells like fruit and berries still. The earth begins to cool and the group moves off to lay in…

    Lumina Tarot : II. High Priestess

    II: The High Priestess The mirror clouds over in purple smoke and an individual appears. Their eyes draw over you, evaluating you. You begin to ask your questions.

They echo in your mind. But before the individual vanishes from the mirror, they give a gift. One of inner power for you to sort through your own questions and find the knowledge you have within. “Go within.” The High Priestess is a card of looking within. They…

    Books + Spirit

    Have you ever read a book and it just moved you to the core of your spirit? I recently had this experience, just after graduation. I was already a mess of sorts at that time. I was moving back home. I felt the pressures of post-graduate graduation (get a job, move out, be successful). Actually use the degree I just paid a bunch of money for. Having to officially prep for the wedding. Etc. Needless to say, the first part of the book hit me hard. The unsurety and need for a change resonated within me. Specifically, there was one point where my fiance had left the room while I…

    Lumina Tarot: 0 The Fool

    I received the Lumina Tarot at the tail end of 2015, and I wanted to spend some time getting to know the deck in a different way than I usually do. Usually, I jump into shuffling the cards and conducting readings for free or for fun. This time though, I am going to take some more time before I move to reading with it. I will be posting entries on each card with my interpretation. These may or may not line up readily with the interpretations given to them by Lauren Aletta at Inner Hue. (You can purchase your own deck here.) In the end though, that won’t matter. I…
