An oracle for those who have come to a crossroads.


The Cauldron indicates the importance of combining a variety of techniques or elements to get the best result.  Refuse to choose just a single rigid pathway when a variety of ways are there to be enjoyed and experienced.  You can find your own ways of creating something new.  The cauldron is a deeply transformational tool—things change once they are put under pressure.  Resilience is being cultivated over time and this means that you will be able to withstand any negative pressure much more healthily from the inside out.


A quick Lenormand career reading.

This reading is offered here as an oracle for all those currently seeking better job prospects and career advancement.

A friend came by today to talk about her developing career.  She asked me to pull some cards and I felt drawn to use my Pixie’s Astounding Lenormand, which is a traditional Lenormand deck illustrated in the style of the Rider Waite Tarot.  It is my favorite Lenormand.  

The Stars guide us ahead on the path, adding their dreamy light and hopeful direction.  The situation has been slowly developing (The Tree) in an inspired way (The Moon).  In terms of career, this means good things are coming, if in a very subtle, gradual way.  Stay focused and keep doing what you’re doing.  It will turn out for the best.

A little witchcraft is a wonderful thing . . .

I am proud to note that I have recently become a council member and priest of the Black Feather Coven, a dedicated and sincere group of witches from all over the world.  When you find a good group, stick with it because it’s a rare and wonderful thing.  Today, I think gratefully about all the spiritual byways and forking paths that have led me through many magical and mundane crossroads in my life.  And, to this, I can only say thank you because I clearly see the path going ever onward.

So mote it be.

The Veil: When Keys Turn in the Locks of Fate

Consulting my oracle deck, The Halloween Oracle, for insight about the cumulative effects of Mercury and Mars Retrograde and the lingering influence of the Super Blood Moon, I drew The Veil.  This is a card about the future, yes, but it is just as much about the future-becoming-present.  That is its true significance.

In the future, anything is possible.  It is when the future becomes manifest in the present that possibility transforms into meaning.  This card emphasizes that transformation.  In other words, look at the things you’ve been anticipating (both positive and negative).  The Veil indicates that they are about to become realities.  So get ready.

Magical people especially have to keep this card in mind because if there are workings and intentions out there, The Veil says they are doing to create effects, for better or worse.  Here, possibility becomes fate.  So mote it be.


Poetry and Prophecy

In early times, honey was the principal inspirational drink, often in the form of hydromel (which can be slightly alcoholic) or mead. Moreover, honey can be hallucinogenic if the bees frequent certain plants. (Wine as an inspirational drink arrived later with Dionysos.) Honey was the traditional food of the gods, often identified with nectar and ambrosia, which confer divine immortality. As you will see, Apollo governs both poetry and prophecy, which are identical in origin, and both are compared to honey when they are divinely inspired and, as a consequence, are both true and beautiful.
