From Musings

Full Moon in Virgo today at 1:05pm EST. The maiden of the earth, of corn, crops and the beauty of simplicity urges us to prepare for the season ahead. Virgo is a mutable sign that can be affected by change. What needs to be released to welcome springtime?

Card of the Day: Four of Wands from the delightful Herbal Tarot. A celebration of love, a new home or chapter. Cheers to a bright beginning!

Card of the Day: The Lovers. Unity in desire, commitment and making the choice to love fully and wildly.

Witches in History: “Fumee d’Ambre Gris” by John Singer Sargent. My all time favorite painting, it hangs above my altar and gives me daily inspiration for focusing intentions, visions and revelry.

Card of the Day: 6 of Pentacles. Gratitude, what you reap you will sow, a touch of Mardi Gras Magic in the cold winter air

Card of the Day: Queen of Wands. As Imbolc fires of purification approach, the spirit of Brigid’s flames appear all around. Dancing in a wave of orange beauty, release, relax, replenish!

Full Moon Moment/Cancer/ January 4th

As pale snow graces our faces this January morning, I watch as people crowd on the subway and wonder; what is their deepest desire for the year ahead? Sure, there’s always the usual  business of losing weight and saying no more than yes, but the collective desire for rebirth is so palpable. As I looked up in the sky, she was there; a Cancer Full Moon swollen and whole, shimmering proudly. My resolution; to feel more, express more and appreciate each moment.

Card of the Day: Nine of Cups! Happiness, fulfillment, a feeling of satisfaction deep within one’s bones and soul. As we reflect back on 2014, what accomplishment brings out a proud smile on your face?
