I filmed this recently and edited for a new client. Muses of Mystery
Wicca, with its focus on goddess (rather than a male god – it has those too) is one of the few spiritual methodologies that, even in its most primitive stages, has always been associated with women. Embracing the “witchiness” – might be just be a new way by which women can come to trust themselves, their autonomy, independence and strength.
I like to identify with the stories of women past – wise women, women who practiced that kind of ‘kitchen table’ healing that wasn’t part of the patriarchal progression of medicine.” After all to me, what is being a witch if not owning the right to be yourself?
These photo are from the FECK Melbourne art competition exhibition Gallery opening. They are glorious and I love the celebration of the Sacred Yoni and feminine intimacy. Love it. That whole night was a completely crazy experience. Black light body paint = nakedness. That is a story for another time
Wild Witchy Wonderful Wednesday.
I was going to do another “Things I love Thursday” as I haven’t done one in I think at least over a year. But here I am, on a Wednesday writing again. Today I feel rested, invigorated, lighter, happy, excited and ON.
I think tonight will be my Spring Clean night. The intensity of the Moon has died down, the Eclipse has happened and my body is starting to recover. I’m successfully fighting off a flu with Androgrphis, Echnacia and Olive leave – which has surprised me. My major injury of last week; a dislocated elbow has calmed down. It’s not broken which is a HUGE relief and I have physio today!
I’ll do a Tarot Card reading tonight as this is a real change – I feel seriously on the cusp of something magical and very exciting. I have no idea what, but I think writing this down, sharing it is putting the magic out there and I’ll look back on this post and have that glorious moment of realisation.
I had a very real moment of intuitive magical foresight or deja vu last week. To the point of thinking I think this IS going to happen, I can feel it. Literally not more than 10-20 minutes later BAM. Bicycle accident. Dislocated elbow, sore hands and skinned knees. I was travelling slower than I would have been otherwise and SO many people jumped out to help me, it was a moment that really restored my faith in Humanity.
I like to be a little magical, a Witchy Queer… and I don’t care if this all sounds a little like fairy tales and bull-shit. To me it’s a special gift and a sense of self awareness that not everyone is blessed with.
I’ve always known, and had the oddest people tell me they can feel my energy or that I’ve clairvoyant talents. However to me it’s more than that. It all stems from a belief system. I’d like to share with you mine and how I’ve rationalised it to satisfy my sense of needing balance of mysticism and reality.
Fate or Destiny?
I believe that you can control your future, you can change or influence your life path. Otherwise look at me, I was born to be a housewife, in a good christian family, have 3.5 kids a husband and a picket fence. Or at least that’s the dream for me my parents had and they, bless their hearts did every thing they could to give me the best start on that path. Obviously this post is a sign that didn’t happen..
So if I believe that you are the owner of your life, your future then how does that tie in with clairvoyant things, magical life and tarot? To me this they are all a thought prompt, a indicator to be mindful around a certain thing, situation or thought. More often than not it’s the kick in the nuts that your sub-conscious needs. Going on the thought process that not everyone is as in tune with their intuition this is very useful. Sometimes with a touch of magic…
After a beautiful day out in the gorgeous Melbourne sun, after another gorgeous festival day my friend and I went for a lovely dinner then off to Luna Park for one quick round on the funniest Ghost Train I’ve ever been on in my life. Hilarious!
The ghost train ride got us talking about Tarot cards.. and having had a set myself now for a couple of years, and getting more in tune, and better at reading, spreads and helping my friends with the meanings of their cards, I suggest I’d be happy to do a reading for her. Back at my house, candles burning, the most delicious Godess incense burning we were ready to go.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20) – is the fixed/earth sign. Taureans stubbornly cling to their own ideas and habits and may fail to take advantage of new ideas or situations, because they cannot see their practical use. They have to understand that while tenacity and a stable temperament yield reward in many endeavors, tolerance and flexibility are the best assets when it comes to personal relationships.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 20) – is the mutable/air sign. Using their communicative skills, Geminis adapt to any situation they encounter. However, they must learn to speak with candor instead of simply repeating what others want to hear. Geminis have clever tongues and develop an amazing ability to obscure the facts with stimulating and imaginative chatter.
Cancer (Jun 21 – July 22)- is the cardinal/water sign. Cancerians get things done through the power of their emotional commitment. Not only do they aggressively work to accomplish the goals inspired by their own feelings, they also know how to appeal to the emotions of others. By making other people feel like family members, Cancerians effectively motivate others to get things done. They have to learn how to reach an emotional balance since they tend to be overly sensitive and moody.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 22) – is the fixed/fire sign. Leos stubbornly cling to their pride. They do not readily alter their opinions or behavior at the request of others. Their stubborn nature makes it hard for them to accept that there is no virtue in giving what they want to give, rather virtue means giving what may be wanted or needed. Neither is there reward in giving misguided loyalty to those who are not worthy of it, which is another possibility with a Leo Sun sign.
Virgo (Aug 23 -Sep 22) – is the mutable/earth sign. Virgos adapt to different people and situations by finding ways to make themselves useful. To hide their vulnerability, they focus attention on what they’re doing rather than who they are. To deflect attention away from themselves, Virgos will also focus on other people by praising their talents and virtues, or by criticizing faulty behavior or personal imperfection.
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22) – is the cardinal/air sign. Librans accomplish things because they intellectually evaluate what needs to be done, then they charm others into cooperating to achieve the goal. By unselfishly sharing the success of accomplishment with those who have assisted them, Librans nurture the cooperative efforts of others. They have to learn how to deal with confrontation. Their fear of hurting others and also of hostile situations can keep them from reaching their goals.
I was asked to pink 5 cards, and the clairvoyant picked a 6th and set it aside.
My cards were:
Detach from Drama
See other people’s point of view
Health and healing
Drink more water
I am superstitious, but have never been a strong believer in clairvoyance… I’m still not convinced but I was surprised how relevant the cards were to me especially after reading through the rest of the pack and seeing others that would have been completely irrelevant. Picking cards at random without seeing them is always interesting especially when you’re at that point of instinctual first choice or second guessing yourself.
To give you a little sneak peek into my reading I’m going to go through each card and pick out highlights of the conversation around each one.
I can’t remember in what order they were in but I think this was the first one. I love the picture on this card. It’s powerful and bright. The description is very much an extension of the stubborn persistent personality of a Sagittarius – being very true Sag myself. I think with this card she asked about my job vs. career. I enjoy my 9-5 job at the moment and have a big picture career path where I see it taking me eventually but she really surprised me asking if I was really in the right industry. She mentioned “Fashion” something that I’ve always been interested in and suggested a specific career path that “they” said I should pursue. I love the suggestion however wonder how much of this suggestion was picked up by our initial conversation (her complimenting my outfit etc). To finish this one off she described my work ethic and personality traits which were quite accurate, though easy to pick up if you have done some “personality styles” training before.
My life this year has been VERY dramatic… I’ve had changes in “relationship status”, living arrangements and extra-curricular activities. Thank goodness things have all settled down a whole lot more now because my body really reacts badly to stress. This card is one of my favorites because the card description is very like me, eager to try and keep everyone happy! If you like me and try to do this, you can’t!! Trying to please everyone will be the death of you – emotional or figuratively. Interestingly the clairvoyant didn’t see any of the life drama I’d had this year but picked up things that had happened in my previous relationship. That REALLY surprised me. She assumed they were part of my current relationship but when I explained that they fitted previously it really highlighted how much I’d unconsciously been effected or dwelling on little things unnecessarily.
The description for this card didn’t really relate to anything we discussed. What did come up was my split personality. I’m not a Gemini but I’ve always said I’ve a work and home (with family) personality and an out of work, performing character. I’m sure I’ve even blogged about it before -I’ll have to check. The clairvoyant told me I have a male side and a female side. Like Yin and Yang. I don’t think this is too uncommon, maybe you have this too.
My issue, she said is that they are both super strong and unless I have them balanced then I will be very unhappy, even depressed. Maybe my interpretation and hers have some commonality? Being super femme, I live in my “female” side but she said I really have to make my “male” side a priority also. All that sprung to my mind were my boot camp with the boys at “Club Physical” and organizing my life, house and non 9-5 career. The practical stuff underneath all the glitter makeup and fancy clothes.
If you can do a life prioritization session yourself I can’t recommend it enough. I’ve done several myself and weather you are superstitious yourself or not, this is a practical skill that will help you focus on things that are REALLY important and will make or keep you happy!
This card confused me. I don’t see myself as argumentative or bad at listening. If I remember correctly this was (I think) the card that she chose, in addition to the five I chose. Definitely good advice but really not superstitious for me and I think could be applicable to anyone.
Getting two health related cards was one thing that made me think “Maybe there is something to this tarot reading thing after all”. I’ve had a number of ongoing health issues over the past year, mostly under control now, but there is no way she could have known that. Drinking more water (what a crazy card name, right?!) is definitely something I’ve been working on out of pure necessity. The description on this card talks about sharing my gift of healing, which is completely the opposite of what the clairvoyant talked about. I have a Diploma in Sports Massage, but that didn’t really come up at all, more just that I needed to focus on looking after myself. (Which is entirely true and interesting)? Oh, yea… I have no desire to change into a healing career. Ha-ha.
I do recommend to anyone who hasn’t had one before to do it. I suppose it’s a type of counseling session – you’re nervous going into it, generally its someone you have never met before, you talk about really personal stuff, leave and hopefully take something good out of it! Wow what a revelation!
I’d love to hear from anyone who really has had a reading that’s completely changed their lives or stuff predicted has happened… Hope you enjoyed…
Your sign is half man, half horse. And even though you couldn’t possibly have a horse’s oversized member, you possess a set of softball sized cajones. It’s not as though you walk around with a chip on your shoulder, unless you happen to end up in a room full of academics discussing Judith Butler: “The point is not to stay marginal, but to participate in whatever network of marginal zones is spawned from other disciplinary centers and which, together, constitute a multiple displacement of those authorities.” To which you would probably reply: “I’m sorry, I really don’t want to think about the multiple displacement of your marginal zones.” In situations like these, you’re liable to be honest, if for no other reason than you can’t help yourself. Any type of establishment is simply not your scene.
Your most comfortable in action, so if a misguided girlfriend tries to tether you to endless weekends trolling Bed, Bath & Beyond, you’ll heed the urge to flee. You’re capable of being faithful, but domestic bliss is not your natural habitat. You prefer a life of adventure, on the high seas or surfing the couches of your many friends. Sagittarians need to travel. I know many who keep a tote packed and passport ready just in case, but I know even more who would pick up and go with nothing but the shirt on their back. Joseph Conrad was a Sagittarius. Just be careful when picking your travel companion. Is she highlighting entries in her Let’s Go India? Yeah, do yourselves both a favor call it off before you leave her in Goa to hitchhike to Nepal. Sightseeing is for pussies. Real women go off-roading.
There is an off chance you don’t have a penchant for travel, and if that’s the case it’s impossible to make you leave home. Perhaps you feel you need plenty of time to think, in which case you may spend your live exploring your inner-terrain. Emily Dickinson was this kind of Sagittarius, so honest she couldn’t stand to be around people. You’re a seeker and philosopher, and fiercely independent. You choose noble causes and defend them eloquently, with impeccable logic. These qualities are essential to your sign, whether you prefer to spend your time writing tortured poetry or doing body extensions. Even if you’re outgoing, you’re not exactly a team player. Tennis and golf, maybe. Rugby and basketball, maybe not so much.
The problem, in sports and at the office, is that you are pretty sure you’re smarter than most people. And, as much as I hate to say it, you probably are. But, that is no excuse for snapping at people who are not as enlightened as you. If you’re interested in your work, you’ll do whatever it takes to get the job done, even if it means compromise. Still, I would recommend a job that doesn’t require close collaboration. For instance, I know an excellent Sagittarian tattoo artist. The work is perfect for him because he gets to talk to people all day about body art and fishing — but his work is his own. Massage therapist, savanna guide, philosopher queen, you name it. But if you try to stuff yourself in an cubicle on the 33rd floor in the air and there’s bound to be trouble. If nothing else, you’ll run away sooner or later.
Your blatant honesty is likely to get you into trouble if you don’t watch it, though everyone will probably forgive you because they know you’re just too stupid to keep your mouth shut. Anyway, it’s kind of nice to be around people who say exactly what they think. On the other hand, I’ve seen Sagittarians slip up and call others fat, stupid, alcoholic, you name it — always spot on and usually without menace. Sometimes you’re bitterly sarcastic, especially if there’s something going on in your own life that’s making you dissatisfied. But otherwise, you’re just calling it like you see it — and why should anybody be offended by that? Not everybody is as open to the truth as you are, my dear. Most people, Trinity, would rather live in the matrix.
You really do have a bit of a messiah complex, especially when you get excited about something. It makes people want to follow you, until they realize you have that crazy gleam in your eye because you just spotted a slot machine. If you’re not a gambler, consider yourself lucky. If you are a gambler, remember to thank heavens you’re so lucky. Like Pisces, your ruler is Jupiter, the king of the gods; though if you prefer, you can think of luck as a lady. I wouldn’t recommend the holy game of poker, as you have absolutely no poker face. But I would bet on you at the blackjack table, or at this crazy crapshoot called life.

How many times do you recieve an email like the one below and think “Wow that really sums me up” or “hmmm this doesn’t discribe me, maybe I’m doing something wrong!”
Regardless of what you think, Star Sign are one of those mysteries out there, passed down to us by ancients with their myths legents and tales.
