Summer’s Abundance Candle Spell

It’s finally summer! This summer solstice passed in traditional Texas fashion for us, with a heat index of 112 *profuse sweating*. Lately, I’ve been feeling…funky. Like every day is shakey and the universe is trying to work against me. A bit dramatic yes (thanks Leo rising and moon) but Gemini season did not treat me well. The other morning I put together this quick candle spell to attract abundance and …

Full Moon in Scorpio: Revealing the Unconscious

Another Full Moon, another post witches! It’s time for the Full Flower Moon in Scorpio, which also happens to be a Blue Moon! I don’t know about y’all but I am feelin’ myself this full moon. Last year, full moons used to drag me down and make me feel so tired and withdrawn. This year I for sure feel at my most powerful and confident during the full moon and …

New Moon in Taurus: Break Free and Prepare

Happy New Moon in Taurus and happy May fellow witches! I don’t know about you, but I felt super bogged down last moon cycle – overwhelmed, overworked, and exhausted. There was a general feeling of being pulled in too many directions and being spread too thin. Between multiple work crises, no internet for over a day, a sick baby, social obligations, and just keeping up on housework it’s time to …

Beltane: Looking Forward to Summer’s Promise

As a baby witch doing her research some time ago, Beltane never appealed to me. ANOTHER sex holiday? Ugh okay. Not that I’m a prude or anything (#getit). Gotta make more baby pagans I guess. But going deeper, there’s another side to this fertility sabbat, and that is celebrating Earth’s abundance and Earth being on the verge of a prosperous summer season. But there’s also a darker aspect to this …

Full Moon in Libra: Get Ready for Round Two

Wait. Didn’t we just have a full moon in Libra last month? What’s going on?? Y’all this is just how moon phases and signs work, it’s fine. Get ready for round two! The first full moon in Libra last month was about starting fresh with the clean cosmic slate that is the Vernal Equinox. Last month was a good time for seriously deep psychic and spiritual cleansing as is appropriate …

Finding Your Light: A Winter Solstice Tarot Spread

The Winter Solstice marks the the longest night of the year, with the subsequent return of our sun and daylight hours. It’s hard to imagine the days are getting longer for those who seem to be in a never ending winter and when it gets dark at 5pm! I have been enjoying the lights on our tree and patio and lighting a candle or two in the evenings though. We …

Identifying Gratitude: A Thanksgiving Tarot Spread

Does anyone else dread the “let’s all go around the table and say what we’re grateful for” Thanksgiving game? It’s not like I’m so jaded and not grateful for my life. My life is so busy and between work, family, hobbies, and just life in general it’s hard sometimes to pick out specifically what in my life I’m grateful for. Or even to stop for a minute and notice something …

Full Moon in Gemini: Working with Mercury’s Retrograde

Happy Thanksgiving week all! I can’t believe that the traditional holiday season is already upon us. We recently had my husband’s mother and stepfather come down to Texas for a visit and this week we’re hosting my grandparents. I’m thankful that even though we’re far away from family that we can still see some of them this time of year! Full Moons always bring out the crazy in people but …

New Moon in Virgo: Time to Prioritize

This New Moon is coming at the perfect time for me! Our son is being delivered on Tuesday, and we’ve spent the entire weekend getting the house ready for his arrival; cleaning, purging, and organizing. It’s been quite therapeutic and I feel like our life is getting a “fresh start” for when we come home from the hospital at the end of the week. I feel emotionally ready which is …

Lughnasadh/Lammas Sabbats

Lughnasadh: Celebrating Summer’s End

Lughnasadh (or Lammas) was a strange concept to me when I first started to research the sabbat. Celebrating the first harvest? Last I checked I’m not a farmer. Produce is available year round in grocery stores. Over here, Eastern Texas is not going to show signs of fall until December. Also, we’re only halfway through the summer, why are we looking towards the end this soon? After doing research however, …
