☾Your Emotions are Valid ❤︎

Greetings, friends!

Today is the day of Luna, and as the moon is trining Venus in Capricorn, we can find new faith and beauty in our work and love life. Furthermore, Mercury is in Pisces, which is a time to reflect on communication in an imaginative or artistic way.

In light of this particular flavor, I’ve pulled a few Tarot cards on which to reflect.

The first card I pulled was the Three of Swords, which was upright. This card represents a possible emotional loss. Perhaps you are feeling sad at a loss of a dream, relationship or some goal you set out to accomplish did not turn out the way you had planned. Allow yourself to express this sadness. Crying or talking to a loved one is a way to cleanse the soul & emerge anew.

I asked the Tarot for any further insights, and the second card revealed was the Nine of Swords, which was reversed. This card represents negative thoughts and possibly fear. This reinforces to me, that perhaps some of you are feeling a deep sense of loss and are lost in negative thoughts about what has gone wrong in the past. Perhaps you are allowing past negative experiences to cloud your perception of the future, and you are stuck in fear. Allow yourself to remember that there are multiple ways to perceive a situation, and that the past is a memory, a movie you are replaying. Allow yourself to turn off the movie. The past is not real and does not define the future. Every loss is an opportunity for new awakening and possibilities. Allow yourself to release self-limiting beliefs and have faith that the Universe is on your side.

In light of these two cards, and with the particular planetary alignments of today, perhaps a way to push through your grief is through artistic expression. Allow yourself to delve into the Imaginal realm and find the beauty within. Perhaps allow yourself to draw a mandala in your favorite colors. Find beauty and healing by allowing your emotions to rise to the surface.

The final card I drew was the Two of Pentacles, which was upright. Perhaps you find yourself having to balance the physical demands of your job and your emotions, which you push down under the surface. Keep in mind the big picture. Material security has its value, but connection with your inner self is where true happiness is found. Allow yourself to feel whatever it is that you’re feeling. If we get caught up too much in the physical demands of our labor, we lose connection with ourselves. 

The moon is exalted today in Taurus; have confidence in the emotions you have been denying. Feel grounded and firm that your feelings are valid. Express them creativity, and you will find beauty, grace and ease as you move forward, feeling more deeply connected to yourself and the Universe. 

Blessed be!

Behold, I am compelled.

Is Magic real?… Or is it spelt “Magick”?

I recently felt compelled by many alignments in my life that I have a certain gift for writing, so here I am. I have further felt compelled through astrological and otherwise correspondences that I ought to communicate about my current mystical pursuits through writing. So here I am. Voila! Abracadabra!

For my mystical backstory, just look at my Bio page.

So, anyway, is Magic real?

Okay, first and foremost, we must define our terms. What do I mean by Magic? Are you ready? Take a deep breath. I define Magic as: A system of mystical pursuits and methodologies that enable you to connect to other dimensions or spirit realms in order to enact change in the physical world.

At least, I think that’s what is.

I have a degree in philosophy from Columbia University, so rigor and analysis are crucial cornerstones in the way I seek Truth, or the Mystical, Divine, or are aliens real?

This whole magic thing is super new to me. I didn’t even really think magic was real, or if it was, it was something evil and not part of God’s plan. I was taught a very limited, repressed expression of the Divine, from which most of the mystical elements had been silenced.

I knew God was real, and I knew there was a lot more to It. After all, if “It” is God, then “It is” necessarily Vast, Mysterious, Complex, and Ultimately Beautiful. Other Dimensional. We all know other dimensions exist. We all know there is more to the world than what we see. Quantum mathematics tells us that.

Not that I know much about Quantum whatever, but my point is: We know there are other dimensions about which we know very little. Let’s call that Mystery, God.

Or something like like that. By Its Nature, It cannot be fully defined.

So anyway, after a series of mystical journeys (about which would be a novel in itself), always in pursuit of my “Destiny,” I recently had one encounter wherein I felt a clear calling from the Mystical Realm to pursue magic, and I’m not even joking: that it was my Destiny.

Can you imagine? My Destiny?

I mean, I’ve always felt compelled toward God/the Divine/Mystery and T/truth. I have always felt compelled toward this Higher Force, which could be defined in numerous ways and none would probably be enough. The Great Mystery, of which we are all a part.

So now this Force is compelling me towards Magic.

Yes, this is my testimony: I have been compelled by the Spirit.

At least I think I am?

It is my goal in writing this blog to share my mystical and magical experiences as this journey unfolds before me. I’m already bursting at the seems with information. Guys, I have so much mystical knowledge to share and still so much to learn. I suppose this will be a journal of sorts as I grow more and more adept in the technicalities of the magical system I feel compelled toward, of which there are many.

I’ll say this right now, though, even the small things I’ve done are working. I’m still learning all the correspondences and rituals, but I’m already getting signs, and I couldn’t be more excited.

I’ve got my Holy guardian Angel by my side (whom I hope to meet one day!), and a book of Psalms I say every day while I vape.

But for now, I suppose this is what I feel compelled to say and which I hope my magic will show: that God is Real. Alive. Abounding in Power and Love.

Amen. Selah!
