    Pixie Witch Kitchen

    Oooops I Forgot My Lasagna Noodles Pasta Bake Ready for a really yummy dinner that’s so easy but others will think you worked hard to make it? This came up one day when my family really wanted lasagna for dinner, but ooops, as I was getting everything ready guess what was missing? My lasagna noodles! Oh no. With Covid going on I don’t run into the stores anymore and I don’t have time to do a pick up order especially only needing one item. So I used spaghetti pasta. I honestly thought its not going to be that great but it will do. Well I was wrong my family loved…

    As Above So Below (How the Stars Became Our Hearts)

      The Roots of the Earth: Acknowledging Our Divine Heritage The moons of the previous month no doubt have you reeling in some way. Moons have always been the way the universe speaks directly to us. Even humans with no spiritual background whatsoever feel like a full moon does something to them. The reason for this is, it’s absolutely true. Spirit or no spirit, the moon exerts its gravitational force on every atom in your body, which of course subsequently effect brain chemistry. Though this can be explained scientifically, it doesn’t mean the universe isn’t awake, and communicating to you consciously. This is to say, regardless of you spiritual background,…

    Book Review – The Divination Handbook: The Modern Seer’s Guide to Using Tarot, Crystals, Palmistry, and More by Liz Dean

    Book Review The Divination Handbook The Modern Seer’s Guide to Using Tarot, Crystals, Palmistry, and More by Liz Dean Fair Winds Press 176 Pages   I love little guidebooks like this. I must have well over a dozen of them. In each one, there’s an overview of a half-a-dozen or so divination methods – sometimes more – and even though the information may often be more or less the same in all the books, they each have some nugget of enlightenment that the other books don’t have – which is why I collect these books. And quite honestly, you can’t have too many books! The Divination Handbook: The Modern Seer’s…

    Documentary Review – The Medicine

    Documentary Review The Medicine Produced by Alma and Aperture Media Productions Time 1:25:16     The Medicine is by far the most eloquently executed documentary of Psychedelics of all time. They take you deep into the culture of Ayahuasca shamanism. Not just a collection of talking heads, this presentation is a work of love, connecting the science, the history, and spirituality of this medicine. Featuring Graham Hancock, Rachel Harris, and many other of our leading cognitive scientists, as well as an inside perspective from the Shaman himself, they take you up close and personal with the medicine known as Ayahuasca.  What sets this documentary apart from the rest though, is…

    Samhain Gifts from the Ancestors: Healing Inter-generational and Historic Trauma

      “It is liberating to consider that when we heal an ancestral pattern, we are not only freeing future generations, but healing backwards through time, liberating all those souls who were left unresolved, unforgiven, and misunderstood.” -Toko-pa Turner from “Belonging: Remembering Ourselves Home”     As Samhain approaches and the veils between our world and the spirit world grow thinner, I’ve been sensing my ancestors surrounding me. I am more deeply recognizing the incredible gift of life I was given through them. Because they lived and survived the times they were born into, I am here. What resilience I have inherited! I’ve also been reflecting on the tremendous responsibility I…

    Tarot Talk

    Comparing the Ten of Wands & the Ten of Swords Many Tarot cards can seem similar enough to each other that interpreting them when they both show up in a spread can be challenging. One way to achieve a deeper understanding of a card is to compare it to another card. This month we will compare two Minor Arcana cards, the 10 of Wands and the 10 of Swords. We will explore similarities between these two cards and the differences. I will be using card images from the Rider Tarot Deck for this analysis. Both of our cards have the number 10. The number 10 represents the end of one…
