    Tarot with Lady Saoirse

    Yule 2023 Bright Blessings! As Yule approaches, you might be thinking of which decks you would like to buy to give to loved ones as gifts- and you might be thinking of which decks you hope to get as Yule gifts yourself! Instead of focusing on cards this time, let’s set them aside and discuss the runes. Yule, is after all, named after Odin, and Odin was the one who gave mankind the runes. Some people say the runes are just letters of the alphabet some smart Heathen incorporated into a new form of divination at some point. Others say that Odin intended the runes for people to use to…

    Book Review & Interview – Keira’s Alpha by D.A. Hinkley

    Book Review Keira’s Alpha by D.A. Hinkley Publisher: Self-Published 310 Pages Release Date: September 1, 2023         Bright Blessings, I had the pleasure of meeting D.A. Hinkley several years back when I was a shop witch at a glorious place called The Parlor in Uptown Westerville. She came in for an event, and we became friends. She gets along with everybody because of her personality, but deep down to a soul level, we connected, and I am so thankful for that. I admire her greatly. Her independence and ability to do whatever she sets her mind to makes her a role model for everybody, especially girls and…

    Review of It Lives Inside Bright Blessings Film Lovers! I have news! This review is of a film we watched in a movie theater. We made it FINALLY. We tried all last month to hit Barbie and Oppenheimer, but every time we went, the theaters were swamped. Now, with those huge blockbusters winding down, and school is in session, people are not flooding the theaters like they were. Things have changed at the movies. For one thing, these days, you reserve your seats, which can be a problem if somebody is in your seat, or the people next to you are loud, or goddess forbid, if they smell bad. We…

    For Samhain 2023 Bright Blessings, I write this as we are about to begin another week where the days get over 90 degrees here in Central Ohio. This shit was all supposed to be over with last month, but we got hit with more heat. It could be worse. Hurricane weather hit Florida, and affected the sea island areas nearby, and people have lost homes. Wildfires have raged in Canada, blanketing other countries in dangerous smoke, and Hawaii is grieving the burning of Lahaina. The earth is burning, and I am one of the people who believes human beings are to blame. Some people say that as you get older,…

    Book Review and Interview – Witchcraft Unchained by Craig Spencer

    Book Review Witchcraft Unchained: Exploring the History and Traditions of British Craft  Written by Craig Spencer Publisher: Crossed Crow Books 243 Pages Release Date: June 22, 2023         Bright Blessings, readers, When I saw this book was available to review, I jumped at it, and before I could say “thank you”, my editor sent it to me. Why did I specifically want to review this book? Because it is rare – rarer than rare. Today, few care about the history of the craft. Most pagans and witches want spell-books instead of learning about the roots of our craft. Some of us witches do want to learn, so…

      Review of Live to 100: Secrets of the Blue Zones   Bright Blessings, I watch things while I crochet and quilt, and this week, something wonderful came up on Netflix that I am very excited to share with you. I bet you did not know I sit and craft while I view films and shows, did you? I wonder how many of you out there do the same thing? Well the amazing show I found today is all about what people do in “blue zones” or parts of the world where a large part of the population live long, healthy lives to be 100 years old or even older.…

    Mabon 2023   Bright Blessings! The last article was all about great questions to ask your reader and what you can learn from such wise questions. So it only makes sense for this article to discuss questions that are not the best things to ask. Experienced readers have lists of their most annoying reading clients and the questions they hate most of all. We don’t sit around and meet about those things, though. I have my own list of things that just don’t get good answers from me at least, but my Priest used to give readings, and he would laugh about ONE particular type of reading he got sick…

    Review of The Best of Enemies   Bright Blessings, Film Lovers!     At age 47, I thought I had seen it all when it came to movies. The last thing that was a completely new idea that I have seen is The Human Centipede, which, yes, I loved it and also parts 2 and 3. A film I watched today showed me that I have not seen it all and I can’t express how happy I am about that. Watching the film about the ex KKK leader and a black civil rights leader and how they teamed up to fight segregation was something completely new to me. It earned…

    Lughnasadh 2023   Bright Blessings! If you are reading this column, chances are, you have been to a psychic reader before, or you are looking into going soon. Some people do a regularly scheduled reading with a trusted reader to have good guidance for their decision making on a regular basis, and other people see readers whenever they feel like they should. Some people say the worst time to see a reader is when you are in the middle of a crisis or emotional meltdown, but sometimes, those are the times you need the support of a psychic most. Regardless of when or why you are seeing a psychic, there…
