It’s a half moon tonight. Even at 50% the moon makes shadows as it shines into my car. It makes me think of balance and duality. Illumination and shadows; what’s presented and what’s hidden. 

I believed for a long time that a part of marriage was knowing your partner 100%. Knowing everything about them, every thought, every idea, every temptation, everything. 

The moon hides half of herself away tonight and so do I. Because even though I love my partner, some of myself is just for me. 

We all have parts of ourselves that never get shared with anyone, that are impossible to share. There’s a whole universe and reality inside our minds, images and thoughts that can’t be shared and can only ever exist inside ourselves. 

Witchcraft is teaching me to fall in love with and treasure the shadows inside of me that can only ever belong to me.

Last night’s magick


I had a good night last night. I’m really proud of the progress I made in my craft and in myself. My husband and I had a really good conversation about it afterwards and I learned a lot. I definitely feel more encouraged to do more magik and confident in it’s success.

I used blood, tears, cayenne pepper, salt, water, smoke, and a mirror, along with the cards, rune, and a candle. 

With Halloween and Samhain coming up, I want to push myself a little bit and delve a little farther into the areas of witchcraft and Satanism that i’ve been avoiding before now, either out of fear, intimidation, lack of energy, or just genuine laziness.

But idk what I wanna do. I’m already planning on spending some time in the graveyard, just to learn who’s there, but other than that… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ idk!

What are you doing to celebrate this year?

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?
