I feel so blessed for every moon cycle my dears!

I grow and evolve and for each full moon, I feel the skin shed and a new layer being introduced to the world.

As I write this, I am headed to an event where I will be reading tarot for a bunch of beautiful souls, looking for clarification in this emotional, deep, and glorious Scorpio Full Moon.

Us Scorpios don’t fuck around. We penetrate the shadow, and help to uncover pain, while healing it intuitively. Having this gift and an affinity for the shadow, I just feel so blessed to be able to read within this energy!

But I have a confession, I am nervous!

Which brings me to the topic of conversation for todays reflection: Fear.

Just because I do this professionally doesn’t mean I don’t have fear around public events. Or even going live in videos. Or even DM’s.

There’s always a tinge of “What if someone doesn’t like my interpretation?”

“What if they don’t understand my message?”

“What if I get judged?”

But the beauty in all of this, is that as the fear never goes away, it does SHRINK.

When I first started WitchyWisdoms, I knew it was something I had to do as a soul mission. Even though it scared the daylights out of me.

And every move forward I have had fear, but it has  become less and less the more I prove to myself that I can do it, no matter what.

Fear doesn’t disappear, but learning to navigate around it and cope within it is so essential on this Full Moon. As we grow, we love all parts of ourselves. Pain and all.

Use this Full Moon spread to find your pain point, and understand how it serves you. My fears always kept me safe, because if I listened to them, I could avoid judgement. But the growth of working through them is worth so much more.

Happy Full Moon babies. Get deep and stay witchy ( *)

Happy Full Moon all! I’ve missed you this month!

I have been curating an anthology for Sexual Assault Awareness month, scheduling events, and booked solid with readings. It’s been an incredible month, but I’ve missed writing!

This month our Full Moon falls in the sign of Libra, which is a sign of community and others. It opposes our fiery sign of Aries in the Sun, which is of the self. It is also a Blue Moon, or the second full moon in a month, and occurring during Mercury retrograde.

Lot’s of energy in the sky!

If you’re part of my ritual subscriptions, you’ve already seen the emails go out for manifesting on this Full Moon. It’s a special Full Moon, as are all, but in the way that it is complex in nature. We find a duality of the self versus the community, we must speak with heartfelt and careful intention (because our messenger planet is retrograde,) and we have extra oomph in this power because of the Blue Moon.

So be careful with your casting, because this moon is nuanced!

That being said, for this past month I have been hyper focused on my self with the return of Aries. Health has been a major concern for me. The snow is melting, the weather is getting slowly warmer, and I’ve been inspired to treat my body with TLC.

Usually, I live like a total bachelor. Grub Hub is ordered at least three times a week, I don’t cook, and I love fatty foods. During the winter, I have many excuses for comfort food, but living by myself has prompted me to adult just a little better.

I went on a food shopping spree, learned to cook two meals, and prepped some easy to grab things for my fridge. The issue behind my poor eating habits is laziness, so I learned to navigate around that by spending an hour in the kitchen on Monday preparing a pasta and some chicken for the week.

No more excuses!

My skin regimen has also been on pointe for the past month. I have been using a jade facial roller, washing my face twice a day, using a face serum and hyper hydrating face lotion, and my skin has been looking superb! I’ve also been drinking a lot more water, and I can tell that my body feels nourished.

Being focused on self care has done wonders for my self confidence, and adding that extra bit of intention just gives me so much joy and gratitude.

For this Full Moon, however, I have been meditating a lot on how to better serve my community. For over a week prior to this Full Moon energy, I have been asking myself the deep questions on how to better serve all of you.

I have abolished a lot of what I thought was gimmicky or inauthentic from my marketing. I have set bigger boundaries. And while that is self focused, it also allows me to better and more genuinely serve my community.

And that’s what this Full Moon is all about.

So celebrate well, my witches, and know that caring for yourself first helps you to be a better teacher, lover, manifestor, and witch.

Stay witchy babes! ( *)

Theme for this Full Moon = PUMPED.

This Full Moon is 11 degrees Virgo, which amplifies it’s energy with the use of a power number. We’re feeling a lot of energetic shifts, especially if you consider where Virgo lies on your astrological birth chart.

So, coming into this Full Moon I had just arrived back from vacation on a Red Eye. And even though I still work on vacation, or I schedule posts/ emails so I have some free time, I always come back feeling like I haven’t done enough. I get this sinking feeling that taking time for myself has been a detriment and I have ruined everything I built by going away for a few days. I freak out and my anxiety bubbles up and then…

Shame.

Guilt. Nervousness. All recipes for self sabotage. And why? Because I took a break to see my family?? No no, now it’s time to rewrite the narrative.

If you have been following my blog from the beginning, you know that personal development is 24/7 work. And running a business effectively is contingent on your own self care. Nothing you grow will flower from dead soil. So since I have been cataloging my journey, even I have down periods where I don’t follow my own WitchyWisdoms.

But I have noticed incredible progress. What used to be down periods of weeks, or even months, my down period this time was 12 hours. That’s it. 12 hours of lying in bed, binge watching Netflix (because every human deserves to be human) and then I woke up, meditated, and got back on the damn horse.

And guess what? Nothing in the world changed! All of that anxiety was self inflicted, and even though it could have been avoided, I’m grateful that it only lasted half a day. Progress is progress, and even baby steps move you forward.

And compared to a few years ago, these baby steps got me out the house and down the street!

I feel a lot of the Devil coming in to running my own business. It’s a lot of obsession over doing things all the time, right away. So to curtail that, I have set up a set schedule within my morning routine. Since my phone is my primary tool for work, I don’t use it at least one hour before bed and one hour after I wake up. I have two complete hours for me. Because guess what? Those clients can wait. I need to be fully me to serve, so in the end, they’ll thank me for waiting.

It was also very important to me to stick to a routine while I was away. Sometimes I have a tendency to have too much fun, or sleep to late, or eat the wrong foods just “because I’m on vacation.” But waking up with my morning ritual helps to set a pace of mindfulness throughout the day so I don’t go off the rails. If you throw everything to the wind because you have an excuse, you’re setting yourself up for disaster.

The last time I went away to California, it took be a couple weeks to bounce back. But today, I’m feeling ripe and ready for action. Yesterday was fabulous, today was fabulous, and tomorrow will be fabulous as well. And I can attribute that to this Full Moon in Virgo, which lights up my 12th house, and has to do with closure and spirituality. Gone are the days of endless self sabotage with a spiral and a freak out. I have honored my healing, I know what it takes, and I stay on top of it.

Tonight will be WitchTastic with a Full Moon bath, manifestation spells, and a lot of healing love from Mother Spirit.

Stay on top of yourself, keep yourself accountable, and stay witchy ( *)

Why My Rituals Are So Powerful (and Why You Need Them in Your Life!)

IMG_0491_Fotor

Practicing intentional symbolic action takes place all over the world at any given time and creates a directed energy that is palpable. Think of the National Anthem at the Super Bowl. That’s a ritual that Americans practice every year and you can actually feel the vibrations coursing through the stadium, and even the living room you’re watching in with a chicken wing in hand. Ritual work is incredibly moving, literally anyone can do it, and utilizing the power of Full and New Moons magnifies the strength of the energy.

But why is it so powerful? What makes this kind of practice work?

  1. Setting a directed intention:
    • When you focus on something, you give it power. And ritual work is no exception. The moon cycle is a great time to set and harvest intentions, and when you really want to achieve or heal something, this is a sacred time and space to be able to do so. All of the thought and energy you pour into what you truly desire will be amplified by this magical work. This is why it feels so great to act it out!
  2. Meditation:
    • Whether you’re using a crystal, the flame of the candle, or simply sitting still, incorporating meditation into ritual work helps to open the third eye and allows us to receive messages. It clears space in our head away from the chaos and allows a mystical energy to flow through. Envisioning yourself lighter or enveloped by a color or aura helps to open certain chakras and foster alignment.
  3. Symbolism:
    • Gathering things that represent the fruition of your intention gives it power as well. If you seek to be more grounded, collecting stones and things of the earth help to place that idea in the forefront. It makes it tangible.
  4. Journaling:
    • Like many witches, I use journaling in my rituals. Coming into a meditative state and free flowing words with which I hold in my subconscious helps to bring them to light. The act of physically writing down my dreams and intentions helps to purposefully put them out into the universe. And as far as manifestation goes, it really works.

These are elements that I use in all of my rituals, and I have gotten rave reviews from every client that has used them. The rewards received from completing a ritual have been an incredible uplifting feeling, clarity, mindfulness, grounding energy, alignment and more. Usually they cost 50$ per ritual, but right now I have a subscription package that costs 1$ per ritual for an entire year. That is a one time payment of 24$ to have a Full and New Moon ritual right in your inbox 1-2 days before each cycle. That is so much value for the price of a couple of Starbucks coffees.

Synchronicity and Our Role in Our Universe

With this highly intuitive and mystical full moon coming up in Pisces, I thought it only appropriate to talk about paying attention to our surroundings and listening to the direction of the universe.

What is synchronicity, you ask? In it’s most simplistic form, it was Carl Jung’s effort to explain the unexplainable. Described as “meaningful coincidences,” it catalogues the relationships between seemingly unrelated things with a similar message. So let’s say that I decided to swear off wearing heels because I fell and scraped my knee after getting a stiletto caught in a subway grate. Then, upon walking past the local Payless, I see a sale on orthopedic flats. Coincidence? Maybe. Synchronicity? Yes.

The best way that I can explain this phenomenon is by harnessing a willingness to receive messages from the universe with open eyes. This takes a kind of un-conditioning, however:

As humans, visual beings, we receive millions of units of stimuli through our eyes and to our brain at any given moment. Because that is a hell of a lot to process at once, we’ve narrowed down what we, throughout our lives, have deemed “important.” This is a pretty keen survival mechanism. Certain things stand out to us for survival reasons. And that is what we’ve chosen to observe over ALL of the other things zooming past us at any given moment.

But, what if you channeled the High Priestess and looked through your third eye? What if you looked for what you needed, rather than what you expected? What if your perception aligned with your beliefs, rather than self-limiting stories?

I could make a case for any side of any story with the gathering of evidence. And that is what we do in our day to day. Most of us use the Moon to gather evidence to support our anxieties. We’d like to live in a world where our deep set fears are consistently proven, because to know otherwise would flip us upside-down and empty our proverbial pockets. But if we, just one tiny slice of evidence at a time, tried to convince ourselves of the gorgeous fact that we live in a perfectly abundant world, we could, one tiny slice of evidence at a time, make the world a better place.

It’s a lot to consume, I know, but stay tuned for Wednesdays exercise. I want everyone to try it and comment their findings. Stay tuned in, and stay witchy ( *)

WednesdayWisdoms: Sex Magick

Brought to you by popular demand: your very own, beginners, sex magic ritual!

Ok, so first things first, if you are looking to be more sexy, have better sex, or have a lot of sex, this is not where you need to be. Sex magick is a form of manifestation.

Sex and orgasms are energy, and this post will teach you how to harness that energy for greatness. This kind of energy is super powerful and works especially well on a full moon.

Alright, so here go the basics:

Step one is figuring out what you want to manifest. Get really specific about the thing you want most in life. Write it out and charge it with an intention. You have to give energy to receive.

Then we’re going to assign this object a symbol of some sort. You can make your own, or attribute a picture to it. Make sure it is visible in your minds eye.

And now for the fun part! Either by yourself, or with a partner, it’s time to get busy 😉 Build yourself up slowly so you can release as much energy as possible.

Finally, when you are just about to climax, hold the image you wish to manifest in your minds eye. Hold it there steady and clearly while you orgasm. This flow of energy will charge the manifestation and make your wish cum true!

Sex magick for beginners is not only quite simple, but very powerful. Full moon energy, helps to enrich the manifestation, but is not necessary. Be free to practice as much as you like, but remember, if you get greedy and start manifesting everything, you might create an energy shift you won’t be happy with. Work on one thing at a time, give thanks to the moon, and stay witchy ( *)
