    Seeing the Signs

    Depression and divination (Photo by Velizar Ivanov on Unsplash) Depression is a disease that affects millions of people, regardless of religion, ethnic background, genetic make-up or economic outlook. Many of us take antidepressants, trying to feel better and suffer dubious side-effects from these medications. Some of us become addicted to these meds. Others of us self-medicate with drugs and alcohol and may end up with addictions to these substances. Some of us console ourselves with “comfort” foods, while others of us lose our appetites altogether and even when we are ravenously hungry, we can not eat. Some of us relieve our psychic pain by cutting ourselves. We lose pleasure in…

    Learning Lenormand

    The Line of Five Anyone who knows me or follows me on any of my WordPress blogs or Facebook or Twitter knows that I have been fighting a major depression – one of the worst depressions in over ten years. It’s affected every aspect of my life – eating, sleeping, my ability to write – and it has affected my desire to use my divination skills. For years, I longed for a deck of Lenormand cards and now I have a beautiful set of oracle cards – actually two historic decks – and probably the best learning manual on the market, The Complete Lenormand Oracle Handbook: Reading the Language and…

      Sleeping With the Goddess: Embracing the Sacred Feminine I twist and turn as the Fates Spin the multicolored threads That are the web of life. Strength and beauty grace my path And Mother’s gaze softens As she looks upon my weaving. I awaken joyous and bursting With life and renewed spirit Youth my ally and wisdom Just from hand’s reach Not ready for the taking I sigh into the pain as New life issues forth I am caretaker and guardian Of this sacred living gift. I close my eyes and slumber finds me Her beating heart echoes through me Arms cradling Her child of making Welcoming me home into…

    Multiple Souls

    (Photo by Florian Klauer on Unsplash)   This document is intended as a commentary on, and companion to, Wendy’s Division of the Soul class. I have called my text ‘Multiple Souls,’ because I believe it is equally valid to say our identity is closely associated with inner spirits. Where we draw the boundary of identity depends on the circumstances. On spirit journeys we encounter deeper levels of ourselves, but we also have to deal with other entities in passing. Some of these are completely independent, others are partly integrated with the soul, partly independent of it. Please bear in mind that this is lore, not information. It isn’t necessary to…

    The Bad Witch’s Guide

      The Bad Witch’s Guide to Hate There is this idea amongst some lovely people that you can “fix” a hateful and intolerant person. That if you just love them enough, are kind to them enough, forgive them, talk to them, you can heal them. Now maybe for some of them that is true. Those whom are genuinely ignorant. After all we don’t know what we don’t know. If we only know and respect people like us we have no clue what it is like to be different. However those folks that hate, really hate with a blinding burning passion? There is no logic, no amount of love or compassion,…

    Finding Your Own Way

    Chapter 3   Acceptance The hardest lesson that we need to earn as human beings is acceptance. It is not a vague feeling of goodwill, nor a sign of weakness and vacillation. It is a powerful tool for expanding up our intuition and creativity. It gives us new insights and new options in many situations. It allows us to take a realistic and honest look at situations in our homes and at work and at many social events. Where once we may have been victims of our own emotions and impulses, we begin to gain the ability to take control of situations around us. It is the key to unlocking…
