I lost my apartment today 

I’m a disabled and mentally ill sex worker and I’m going to be homeless tomorrow. My partner is a mentally ill POC who can’t pass a background test because he has a warrant out for an unpaid ticket that we were too poor to pay, for not having insurance because we couldn’t afford it. His warrant is in a state we can’t even afford to travel to in order to clear it up. 

I desperately need to scrape together some money to limit how long I’m going to be homeless. I’m offering a variety of readings and other witchy services
– 1 card is pay what you can

– 3 are $25 

– pendulum readings (yes/no questions) are pay what you can 

– 1 rune is $20

– 3 runes are $40 

– sigil commissions are pay what you can. I use my own alphabet and make all my sigils from that. All I need from you is your statement/mantra/will 
Money can be sent to ladythcxoxo@gmail.com via Google wallet or circle pay. 
Reblogs are appreciated too 🍃

Help a witch out 

I’m taking paid tarot readings today until Monday! 
I had a cheque come to me very late, my landlord is not happy, and now he’s trying to evict me and wants more than what’s on my cheque because of my back rent. Things have been super rough this year and I could use a little help. 
Single card readings are just pay what you can (I normally charge $10) and 3 cards are $25. I do larger readings as well, but they are a lot of work and can get pricey. 

Card of The Day: Three of Swords

img_3168

More often than not this card is devastating to draw. With it’s grey, cloudy sky pelting down rain, and a heart with three swords thrust through it, it can be hard to find anything in this image that isn’t quintessentially “heartbreak.”

This card is specifically about the mess after a heartbreak, the pieces of yourself scattered everywhere. We’re reminded the need we have for ourselves, and for self-care. Only you can pick up the pieces of yourself and there is growth and self-discovery in the process. Here is an opportunity to examine yourself in a new way. It will be painful, and you can’t put the pieces of yourself back together perfectly, but what a splendid opportunity for self-creation and self-recognition!

The swords represent intellect and the number three often points to growth. It may seem odd that this card isn’t in the cups, until we consider how much intellectual growth really goes into recovering from a heartbreak. It takes real, deliberate intellectual effort and work to heal your heart after it’s broken and really determine where the pieces go.

What opportunities has your heartbreak opened up for you? What could you still learn from your heartbreak?

Card of The Day: Six of Swords

img_3172

Every time I see this card I can’t help but see a mother and her child escaping abuse. There is a heaviness to this card, with the grey sky, the turned backs, and the huddled up figures. But there is also hope; they’re moving, making process, getting somewhere.

This card is about finding success in motion or change, whether you’re escaping sorrow or seeking harmony, you are taking a journey. This is the action of your self-reflection; the change you know you must create. It’s the hard choice you know you must make if you’re ever going to get where you want to be.

The swords represent intellect and the six often represents advancement or a journey. The six also is the resolution from five, in this case; retreat after conflict; intellectually the best choice, but not the most desired option.

Think about what you need to do to achieve your goals, or keep yourself safe and secure. Are there any hard questions you need to ask yourself? Is there something you know you must do that you’ve been hesitant to approach?

Learning The Court Cards

img_3199

I recently determined to get a firm grasp on the court cards, as they are the last ones to really stump me. To do so, I pulled all the court cards from my deck and separated them by kind (pages with pages, etc) and examined each group to determine what the cards in each group have in common with each other.

The progression of one card relating to and moving into the next, as we see with the Fool’s journey and the rest of the minor arcana, also relates to the court cards.

We start with the Page, the manifestation and embodiment of her suit; creativity is born into a new and eager form in the page of wands, for example. She is young and curious, examining and exploring herself as creativity, while also being an expression of creativity itself.The Knight is his suit in action. In the case of The Knight of Swords, he is the practice of intellect. He is determined to finish his task/journey and shows discipline in his field. The knight also represents travel and messages. Once the Knight accomplishes his quest, he becomes the Queen; the examination and contemplation of the outcome of her suit in action (the result of the Knight’s quest). She enjoys herself and the benefits the action provided her. Once she has determined it to be good, smoothed all the edges, she becomes the King; the complete maturation of his suit. He enjoys the final result and benefits of all his previous hard work. He sits upon his thrown, secure in himself and in his wisdom, sure of his accomplishments and abilities. The King does not doubt himself.
