У меня не было этой истерии приближения тридцатника, как у всееех, поголовно!
Я всегда себя чувствовала взрослой - намного старше своих сверстников - как будто я всегда знала и понимала больше.
Мамуля рассказывает что это началось в самом детстве!
И буквально недавно я совсем перестала ностальгировать по юности!
Мне комфортно здесь - с этими возможностями и знаниями!
А как вам ваши годы? Печалят или радуют?) переживали этот рубеж 3-го десятка?)
Come, venerable, various, pow'rs divine, with fav'ring aspect on your mystics shine;
bring glorious, ardent, lovely, fam'd desire, and warm my b***m with your sacred fire.
i'm back! ❤️
a lot of things happened while i was away. first of all, my colleague @nadinethornhill launched an ebook about talking with your kids and teens about sexuality! let's talk about sexuality covers anatomy, consent, gender, and other family-focused, age-appropriate topics to help parents and guardians navigate discussions about s3x.
in my own world, i learned a lot about what i need in terms of work ethic, boundaries, and engagement with my world. stepping away from work for a few days, and connecting with the sensory experiences around me (hiking, exploring nature, and swimming for the first time this year) have shown me how disconnected i've been from my world. it's hard to resist the virgo workaholic tendencies, but i want to show up for you all in a more balanced way. i want to give you my full, real, and rested self, instead of pushing myself to do everything all of the time. we'll see how that manifests 😬
i also returned to the jarring change of instagram's new fonts, so let's see how long it takes me to adjust to that...
ultimately, i'm excited to be back, to reconnect with you all, and to continue adapting my business to my needs and energy levels.
what else did i miss while i was gone? how are you doing? are you feeling this weird dichotomy of emotional fullness and heightened anxiety?
I recently went and took photos for my friends at @newmoonbooks and guys. the books. the aesthetic. the shelves that go from the very front to the very back 🤤🤤 what is your favorite book store? tag them in the comments, small businesses still need us y’all
Today’s post is inspired by @matauryn thought provoking post on witchspaining, otherwise known as other people trying to tell you the ‘right’ way to practice your craft.
back when the internet(early 90s) was a new fad for mass consumerism, there was an explosion of occult angelfire pages(remember those!) and forums(a/s/l?)dedicated to promoting the sharing of magickal knowledge.
obviously the internet was an exciting new thing back then, and the thought of connecting with ‘real’ witches and sorcerers was thrilling to me.
i would join forums and read about people’s experiences, but one thing that would bother me is the way in which other people would sometimes comment. things along the line of ‘oh my goddess you cannot do that spell until the moon is in it’s third phase’ or ‘a love spell is a big no no that’s against a witch’s ethics’.
these comments would always irk me; who gave that commenter the gall to tell another person how they should be practicing something that, by it’s very nature, is extremely personal as well as circumstantial.
the all too common topic of ‘cursing’ is still one that is hotly debated amongst certain groups of practitioners. i personally used to get dragged into such lengthy discussions when i used to visit a particular ‘light & love’ spiritual shop to get supplies in the uk.
my standing has always been that history alone has revealed to us that people have performed curses, hexes, death magick, magickal seduction, binding, s*x spells etc for thousands of years. what makes you think you have at right to tell another person what their circumstance is of how to deal with if magickally?
to end on a high, the amount of ego tripping that i see on instagram is mind- boggling. makes me almost want to close my page and go back to the comfort of of my very cozy closet.
Dear libra, the taurus moon forms a trine with saturn this morning, giving comfort through daily rituals and routine. staying on task should come easily now, and you're likely to feel a sense of satisfaction for striking this efficient rhythm.
graveyard dirt has many uses in witchcraft including protection rites, banishment and contacting spirits & ancestors! it is especially useful if you cannot visit the resting place of ancestors or loved ones but still wish to contact them - graveyard dirt can act as a connection to the spirit world.
always be respectful when taking dirt from cemetery land (or even just visiting!) i always like to pay my respects to the dead by taking the time to read the names on the headstones as i walk through.
(fyi, i didn’t take this dirt from a particular grave though this is also practiced to connect with the spirit of that particular person or loved one, it is usually simply referred to as grave dirt. please remember that any sort of spirit work can potentially be dangerous and one should have the knowledge of how to spiritually protect oneself from harmful spirits before attempting this kind work)

Questo libro spiega il vero modo in cui erano (e sono ancora) viste le streghe.
dal medioevo sono sempre state considerate meretrici del diavolo, male allo stato puro, sciagure viventi.
la gente non sa che in realtà erano curatrici e donne con un antico sapere. potevano essere analfabete, ma non ignoranti della vita, come le persone che le hanno incolpate e private della loro libertà.
se eri bellissima e irraggiungibile, la tua bellezza doveva essere cancellata.
se eri connessa con la natura, dovevano sradicarti dalla radice.
se mostravi devozione a divinità del passato, pregando culti antichi, dovevi essere esorcizzata.
se eri nubile, libertina, sbagliata, diversa o dimenticata dalla società non andavi bene, dovevi essere "purificata e tolta di mezzo".
nonostante ciò, dopo secoli di distanza, queste donne sono tornate, lasciando le loro eredità fino ai nostri giorni.
spero che le mie parole possano farvi rifllettere un pochino su questa verità.
aprite le menti, non siate come quei giudici...
dal libro: "vuol essere un modo per ripercorrere la storia della stregoneria e della caccia alle streghe nelle molte forme che essa ha assunto nel tempo e nello spazio. vuol essere anche un modo per riflettere su quanto questo fenomeno, spesso relegato nell'angolo della follia, dell'ignoranza, dell'irrazionalità, sia stato invece interessante e complesso, abbia segnato la vita socio-culturale di intere comunità e sia divenuto oggetto di dibattito serio e preoccupato fra le più imminenti figure di quei secoli.
in fondo, erano un corteo di donne devote al seguito di una nocticula, cioè lux in nocte, quindi la luna, vale a dire uno dei tre aspetti della triforme diana-ecate-luna.[...]
un nesso, peraltro non facile da indagare, tra la classica e certe forme di culto, come quello a ecate o a iside, particolarmente intrise di magia e misteri."
kettenanhänger aus einem unbehandelten, natürlich gewachsenem rauchspitzen-citrin und 925er sterlingsilber.
diese form des citrins wird nur in sambia gefunden und vereint citrin und rauchquarz miteinander.
das sieht nicht nur spektakulär aus, die beiden ergänzen sich auch sehr effektiv in ihrer wirkweise.
rauchquarz ist der stein der trauernden, denn er bringt lebensfreude zurück. menschen, die mit dem leben an sich schlecht zurecht kommen, profitieren vom rauchquarz, denn er schenkt kraft und die erkenntnis, dass sich immer ein neuer anfang lohnt. er hilft, mit beiden beinen fest auf dem boden zu stehen.
cirtin ist ein muntermacher, ein lichtbringer und motivator. er hat eine stimmungsaufhellende und lebensbejahende schwingung. er hilft dabei, morgens frisch aus dem bett zu steigen und entfaltet seine wirkung übers sonnengeflecht.
er beschert klarheit im leben, weckt neugierde auf neues und kann dabei helfen, erfahrungen oder enttäuschungen besser zu verarbeiten.

🌻 sunflowers 🌻
look to sunflowers when you feel a need to appreciate what you have in life, and to move away from negative thought patterns.
you can’t help but feel bright and happy when you see these gorgeous sunny plants.
sunflowers appear in our lives when we need a little reminding to embrace our uniqueness.
‘be a light onto yourself!’
these were very sweetly gifted to me by a client ☀️

Creativity is the highest form of spirituality.
this is something i say often (and pretty loudly). creatitivty comes from that same magical place as connecting to spirit / source / your guides / your ancestors.
i've never studied art and thus am not great at arts things - but i do love to craft (i get that from my mother). i recently started making resin jewellry which is fun because you don't really need to learn how to do anything (as opposed to pottery or knitting or whatever).
this bracelet is made out of resin, malachite (for leadership and strength) and carnellian (for grounding and connection to the base and navel chakras).
look, is it perfect? hardly. but that's the thing so many of us get wrong - school trains us to believe that art and crafting is about getting a teachers approval or an "a" on an assignment.
for me, the joy of craft isn't in the final product but in the making - i can spend hours engaged in the tactile pursuit of making something look cool.
in no small part i'm sure this has to do with the fact that my business is consulting - that is, it's thinking work. getting to make things with my hands is novel.
this has been such a crucial lockdown 2.0 strategy for me - it keeps me sane, grounded and happy.
and bonus: cool jewellery infused with my own intetions and energy.

Today’s ‘outfit from the work loos’. it is soooo hot! 🥵anyone else just feel like this summer is dragging on forever? i can’t wait for cool, misty autumn days.

Not my post but please read! rest is in the comments.
i know i am a day early but i still want to talk about this. this is a subject that i will always bring up every year. on august 11th 2007 sophie lancaster and robert maltby were beaten by a group of chaves in lancashire. robert maltby ended up surviving the attack but sadly after a few days on august 24th sophie lancaster passed. why did this happen? simply because they looked different and had different music tastes. they were beaten to death because they were goths.
this is not the first time goths and other alternative people have had cases of discrimination, hate crimes, and assault. in fact every goth has experienced this situation including myself. i have had discrimination from my own family members. i remember i was 15 (living with my aunt at the time) she assumed that i was worshipping satan because of my choice in music so i got sent to a foster home for children that would break the law. keep in mind i haven't broken any law and yet was still sent there because of my music choice and appearance. i've had more than one case where people would try getting me kicked out of school because they assumed i was going to shoot it up simply because of my appearance and music choices. my entire family refuses to talk to me because of not only my appearance, music of choice but also my sexuality. just last year, i was beaten by my mother's ex boyfriend simply because i was a goth. almost every year on july 4th i would have to stay inside because full grown a*s adults would try to throw fireworks at my head as they drove past me.
goths have faced this sort of thing since day one. one of the videos i'm going to show you by angela benedict talks about how in her highschool back in the 90's there was a thing called "beat the freak week" where jocks and people that were not alternative would target anyone who looked different and push them down the stairs, cut their hair, even to throwing a cup of s***n into someone. #goth#gothcommunity#gothlove#equalrights#goths#gothsofinstagram#gothic
what to expect on the rest of august - general reading 💜 wondering what message you got from the universe now?
pause and take a moment to get in touch with your intuition. focus on each deck, from left to right, and choose the one that you felt you are being called to the most. trust that your higher self is guiding you to what you needed to know right now.
tell me your choice at the comment below. feel free to tag your friends and family! tarot cards will be revealed tomorrow! thank you and god bless you all! ❤🧡💛💚💙💜
