Mercury Retrograde plus Beltane and the thinning of the veil between worlds.

I noticed a few nights ago I started having dreams in which my dead Grandmother who raised me was coming to me with little messages about things. I was so busy with a Earth Day Festival my Belly Dance students and I were dancing at that I basically forgot it was a week till Beltane. No wonder when I have quieted my mind, the very few times I had, it seemed like my guides were closer, louder,quicker. Same for my ancestors. Finally it dawned on me, omg it’s almost May 1st. Derrrrr lol

All that thinning of the veil between the worlds ..what a beautiful time. Advice is closer and louder, things for me are manifesting way fast. 

If your new and maybe not even fully Wiccan like me, here are some ideas to really let your guides and ancestors help you out. 

Smells, they love smells from the past and what a better time then during a Mercury Retrograde to investigate any ancestors you have. Did they have a favorite flower? Food dish? Cookie? Music? 

What did your house smell like and sound like as a child?

Recreate the past…The Mercury Retrograde is famous for bringing it back , use it to your advantage, laugh with your spirit guides over all the dumb shit you’ve done and the psychos you once swore you loved. This is a great time to heal and forgive. 

It can also point out cycles and history starting to repeat itself in work or love or even health, your guides and ancestors are right here to help you break through some of this, use it! 

Your electronics are gonna be equally goofy with a thin veil plus retrograde , might as well stay off when not working and dig up some old friends still alive and spend some private time with those beyond .

Enjoy the blend of a Beltane in a Mercury Retrograde . It’s a great time to manifest what you really need that maybe you’ve never had before. Confidence, Etc. 

And most of all know that you are the creation of the love of thousands that created those who created you. Let that really sink in and then walk in honor of it as this time passes. 

Blessings to all

Full moon group candle intention ritual on the day Prince died. Letting go of what has passed and focusing on life in the here and now. 

I was so excited for tonight. Had been preparing a huge group intention candle for friends and clients. Plus had taken on 6 individual spell orders instead of my usual 4.

Then about 10am the tv flashed to a special report, Prince had died.

Shock, then tears, then just sadness hit. Luckily I saw my therapist at 1pm and was able to process and feel and get back on track for this very special full moon. 

It wasn’t easy I’m so grateful it was therapy day. The universe was looking out for me there, for sure! 

So here I am , starting tonight and happy and at peace, doing what I love. I wish that for all of you, through tears, shock, bad days, you still find that one moment where you feel love and joy and connected to all. 
Happy Full Moon and Huge Blessings to all .

Witchcraft and Spell Casting for Those Who Have Allergies or Asthma to Candles and Incense. 

Witchcraft for those who have allergies and Asthma to Candles and Incense.I was a pack a day smoker for years, also suffered from bronchitis a few times a year. As I got older I quit smoking but noticed as a professional spell caster doing 3-4 spells a night alot of incense and candles were really getting to my allergies and asthma .

But I had always done candle Magick it was my trade mark.

The one thing I found that helped was switching to white unscented candles then just carving my intention and color into them. It’s absolutely OK to use white for anything and you can even carve in a combo of colors such as green and gold for business success .
Incense for whatever reason nag champa is the only one that doesn’t really bother me but I let it burn for awhile on the altar before using the altar. If I sit right in front of it it will still bug me.

I can still use sage, the mini wands atleast to smudge without a attack, but I have bought a sage citrus spray to clear the air of negativity more daily and in quick situations.
Fire symbolically sends our wishes to the air..to the sky…

So for someone who really can’t use even little unscented candles or incense at all , How else can you release to air? obviously throwing a oil sprayed and sigiled petition into the air outside is one way but if your doing 3 or 4 a night that’s alot of paper in your yard lol
Sprays work great if your doing your own work especially and I will try to add some recipes here for different sprays, they still hit the air just like smoke and carry your intentions.
One thing I have learned that helps, something I do with locals especially and try for yourself is to get a nice big rock.. Can be ugly as shit lol just a big guy and charge it under the moon as a prayer or wish rock, similar to a vision board.

Then over the month between full moon to full moon write sigil style petitions with initials on the rock. Leave it back outside on new moons and full moons. And when you finally run out of room, place it outside for good. 

It will eventually make your yard look very interesting lol If your extremely artistic do Mandalas to represent the intention of the spell..be creative.. The rain in time will wash and evaporate the wish back to the heavens above.

As I get more into my Crone years of course I get that the real Magick comes from inside of us anyways. But being a spell caster I love to get messy and create new ways to do spell work and not hurt my aging health while doing so. I want to encourage you all to always keep learning, experimenting, playing and trying new things. Where there is a will there is a way. You sure can still do great magic even with asthma or allergies.

Blessed Be.

Professional Psychics and Spell Casters, How Real to Keep It? 

Just How Real and Personal should you get as a Professional Psychic or Spell Caster.
I remember when I started spell casting online at eBay in 2006. Almost ten years ago. We had just started the Real Witches Channel, videos of us doing spells with Erin’s baby girl throwing fits in the background. I think she breast fed in one video lol
This wasn’t even business promotion. There was no non local business yet. That was just us filming ourselves trying to show what the life of a Real Witch looked like.
Then people begged us to go to eBay they could see we were real and wanted our services.
So I did, then Erin followed and not to brag but we were very well known.
Then I attracted the attention of a cyber stalker and realized just how easily found I was, my kids were, how naive with so much of sharing of my real life with good intentions really had been.
I had to learn balance when I re started my business after the stalking. Still always using my own face, my own photos, but had to use past last names, that were not my legal last name, stop showing off my kids, home and family and hubby so much, learn to show the world I’m happy as a witch, this shit works, … but not make anyone so fascinated they wanted to stalk or rob me.
Recently since new year’s I’ve gotten myself involved as a hard core supporter of other psychics and spell casters, trying to form supportive sellers groups etc.
So I’ve had the chance to observe through Virgo eyes.. Yes God help everyone lol! The different forms of marketing people attempt.
Coming off too professional, well let’s face it, that’s usually not a Pagan issue :), but for others it can come across as a bit boring.
But then again I saw the other day a psychic in really bad health try to force herself to keep a commitment to a live free one card reading and it was so painful to watch.
It in no way or shape made me want to bother her with a order.
Made me wanna call dispatch for a well being check !
It’s good to say I’m successful , here is my amazing feedback testimonials, or I’m down to my last open spot tonight. But if your so screwed up people are afraid to place orders as it might be a bother to you. Your doing it wrong!
Also I recently saw a psychic who also does some spells.
Beg for customers so she could order dinner that night
Listen I’m a witch, I have bad days, my life isn’t always perfect but if I’m so poor I can’t buy one meal, and I have the power to do money spells.. Umm Hello.
And I’m not rich. I live a very simple life. I’m not saying to be a good spell caster you should have a zillion in the bank.
But should you be able to manifest a pizza.. Without begging and making it public.. yes…
You should be able to do that law of attraction style without even lighting a candle, come on now.
If you’re saving up for a cruise or a huge vacation or fund raising or some other big deal that’s fine.
I grew up Catholic my great Aunt was a nun. It’s one thing to take a vow of poverty to use it to further your spiritual practice. But if you charge for spiritual practices and make it your profession then parade your poverty around. Exactly how are people going to have faith in your ability to help them.
Not that were perfect. I was a psychology major, I know substance abuse counselors that are still active addicts yet can and do help their clients to recovery.
I know psychologists with more issues than ten of their clients combined that are still great at their job.
So I’m not saying Witches or Psychics or Reiki Masters can’t get sick or be poor and still not be helpful to others, provide miracles for others, what I am saying is if I go to buy a money spell, I’m gonna buy it from someone not publicly complaining about poverty all the time.
If your a poor psychic. Ask your guides for help!
Sickness is a bit different, hate to tell you but everyone will at some point get sick and die. Just happens.
But if you are so sick you can barely function. Learn to deal with it before going on video.
Show your fighting spirit. Tell ppl hey I live with this illness but I carry on. But only if you really can. If you can’t, then get to where you can so you can mean it.
There is so many cons out there in the craft, that the few real ones need to really remember to stop and self care. Take care of your spiritual needs before trying to take on every client. If your sold out be sold out. Don’t make people wait weeks because you’re just so stressed and overworked and overwhelmed. If I hear one more psychic or spell worker complain about having so much work they are over whelmed I will kick them. Find your limits, know your boundaries, don’t get greedy, people will see right through you.

Be Real and Honest but check yourself in the mirror first. How attractive is your reality. ?
Fix yourself first then clients will naturally flow.
This is all said with love and alot of screwing up, doing it wrong and experience in fucking up myself ! 🙂
