Card Drawn: Saxifrage

Key Word: Separation

Words of Wisdom:

“Separate yourself now and make the break.

Enough time spent on giving it one last try.”

My Foresight Friday Interpretation:

Today’s card is Saxifrage. This beautiful five-petalled flower is used in magic for breaking bad habits and destructive patterns and also for protection.

I’m not gonna lie, this week has kicked the frikken snot outta me. My own anxiety over the Presidential election…coupled with being able to feel everyone else’s anxiety over the same thing has me physically, mentally, and emotionally exhausted. It has taken me hours to get to this point in writing this post, but I think I’ve finally got at least some of my mojo flowing again, so let me get on with this before I lose my groove! LOL

Foresight Friday: Take a Step Back in Order to Move Forward

 

Card Reading using the Sacred Circle Tarot

Foresight Friday: Take a Step Back in Order to Move Forward

Divination Method: The Sacred Circle Tarot

Card(s) Drawn: 6 of Swords

Key Word(s): Solace


My Foresight Friday Interpretation:


I haven’t dragged out my Tarot deck in AGES, but today I felt the call from my old friend The Sacred Circle Tarot; and I’ve got to say, it didn’t disappoint me! Most folks are a little apprehensive when swords show up in a reading. I can’t say that I blame them, as it often means a harsh reality or circumstance is being brought to light. The 6 of Swords isn’t a card we should cringe away from though.

Wayback Wednesday: Easing the Sting of Mercury Retrograde

Brace yourselves folks, Mercury goes retrograde (yup, again) on October 13th. Some of you may have been feeling the effects already, as we’ve been in the “shadow period” for aweek or so now. The information posted below was originally published on my old website in October of 2013. I figured now was as good a time as any to re-post it, so you all could have the info available to you, should you need it. Enjoy! And may the odds be ever in your favor!

Gluten-Free Caramel Apple Mabon Cake Recipe

Post header for Gluten-Free Caramel Apple Mabon Cake Recipe


Gluten-Free Caramel Apple Mabon Cake Recipe

Mabon Blessing to all of you fantabulous peeps!!!

Fall is now upon us, and that means APPLES!! So when I was asked to make the cake for an Autumn Equinox (aka: Mabon) celebration that I was attending back in 2012, I knew it had to be full of Apple-y Goodness.

I found several "glutenous" recipes for Mabon Cakes while perusing Pinterest but decided to come up with my own recipe instead. This recipe not only had to be Gluten Free (as I was not the only gluten sensitive individual who was going to be in attendance) but it also had to taste so good that nobody else would believe it was G-Free. I am happy to report, this Gluten-Free Caramel Apple Mabon Cake recipe fits the bill nicely.

I don’t know about you, but I am continually blown away by this little thing called Divination. The synchronicities that constantly pop up in my readings never cease to amaze me. I can’t really say I’m surprised exactly, I mean…I’ve been doing this for a while now, but it never fails to fill me with wonder. This week’s reading is no exception.

It’s FINALLY here, Peeps! I’ve done the reading, and tested a couple recipes, and now you lucky devils get to read my thoughts and ramblings about it all. Are you excited? You should totally be excited. I did have to adapt the recipes - because I can’t do gluten and try to eat a ketogenic diet - but, I was careful to keep their curative integrity intact.
Now, let’s get this show on the road - or Path - shall we?

Key Word(s): Medicine Woman | Sensitivity | Be Strong


My Foresight Friday Interpretation:

I have to admit, I’m feeling drained, and am fighting a migraine today, so I’m not super thrilled that I pulled three cards today. BUT, divination is one of the few instances in which I just shut up and do what I’m told. So, please bear with me if I seem a little “off”.

“I am a unique being

I like to think of Crows as the Bards of the Animal Kingdom. They are playful, friendly, creative, and love to collect things (especially shiny things). Their fantastic memories allow them to remember the faces of those who have helped them…and those who have harmed them, and to spread the tales of both to their brethren.

Magickal Musings: Exploring the Human - Deity Connection

Vignette of Statues and Images of Various Gods & Goddesses

Magickal Musings: Exploring the Human - Deity Connection

The Human - Deity Connection has been the basis of our Spirituality for thousands of years. 

Although the deities, and often the ways in which we worship them, have changed, the human need for deity has not. This need to feel connected to something bigger than ourselves is prevalent in many, if not all religions. There is a primal need for answers as to what our reason for being here is, and what waits for us after death. Deity holds the answers for us and connecting with them is the only way to find out what they are.

The Pixie Has An Announcement: New Contact Info and Services Available!


Hello again, My Darlings! I hope you are all having a spectacular day and that you’re able to do a little something special to celebrate Lughnasadh (aka: Lammas) during this Time of COVID.

Today is an extra special day for me, as it marks the 17th anniversary of the day I dedicated myself to The Path of The Wise; which, as you all know, has been quite zany and a bit all over the place - hence: Pixilated.

If you read yesterday’s Foresight Friday post (if you haven’t, you should totally do that while you’re here) you’ll remember that I said I had a bit of an announcement.

Pixie Card Review: The Enchanted Map Oracle by Colette Baron-Reid
Hay House, Inc. November 1, 2011 | $21.99 | ISBN 978-1-4019-2749-3

Welcome to the newest Pixie Card Review! In this installment, I’m giving you my impression of The Enchanted Map Oracle; a 54-card deck created by Colette Baron-Reid and published by Hay House, Inc.

What made me want to buy this deck?

Well, the stress of our current lives is getting to people and everyone is handling it differently. Some are becoming at-home fitness enthusiasts, some are baking sourdough bread, while others are giving in to their primal fashion desires (You know who you are, lol). Anyway, I’ve been coping with hours of endless streaming binge-fests, puttering in the garden, eating way more carbs than I should, and…buying oracle decks (Just ordered another one last weekend).

I was browsing decks online, and I was struck by these. With cards like Bone Collector, Wizard of Awareness, Sacred Pool, Deep Freeze, & Dry Desert - just to name a few - it felt like these had a mystical dreamland quality about them, so they went in my cart.
