Pain Loves You

What does it take before you give in to the pain? The pain of not feeling good. Of shame and guilt. The pain of depletion. Or the pain of destroying your relationships. What about the pain of a body wracked with health issues? The pain of burden from taking on too...
Venus Retrograde

Venus Retrograde

Venus went Retrograde last Wednesday for 40 days and 40 nights. ✨Pro tip – this is a bad time to make big investments, change your appearance, or get into a new relationship you want to be longterm (great for a fling, though. 😉) I repeat: Don’t...

It doesn’t feel good anymore

It doesn’t feel good anymore

It doesn’t feel good anymore. I’ve been inside the realms of tantra, spirituality, and self-awareness – those thing that supposedly catalyze growth – for a very long time. (Longer than most) As I see posts from others in the community, posts offering...

Your Fear of Death

The Collective fear and awareness of Death is in part due to the Great Conjunction of Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn in Capricorn. 🌀Jupiter expands, magnifies. 🐍 Pluto is death, Shadow, the Underworld realms. Also, rebirth, facing fears. 🪐 Saturn...

Is Negativity Contagious?

Dying. Over and Over Again.

Death Process for the Living

It seems as though I’m becoming an “expert” in Shamanic Death. However reluctant. Shamanic Death is a process of Ego Death wherein everything you know yourself to be, the things you identify with/as, the role(s) you play, the archetype you embody, must die. When this...

We are all dying

Q: What did you do last night? Me: I was in the woods burning stuff with all the other witches. (DUH) But truly, this is the time of year when we honor the dead, pay homage to our ancestors, and let go of our attachments to things that no longer serve us. Blah, blah,...
