Sacred means connected with God (or the gods) or dedicated to a religious purpose. It is our way to connect and to honor what is holy or meaningful to us and our spirituality. Are you embracing the sacred in your life? Are you nourishing your spirit? My word-of-the-year is Magic and for me, that means embracing Spirit in my life. I’ve been getting in touch with my life and making it sacred. I was thinking about my day, of the little rituals that make up my day, and how they connect me so deeply to my version of the Divine.

I’ve officially been doing this whole business thing for almost six years. The experience has been all over the place. I’ve gone from thinking that it’s the most awesome experience ever to being moments away from throwing up my hands and throwing in the towel. Complete disinterest to passionate love where I stay up for hours writing my little heart out. At the end of the day, I still love my business, even on the days where I struggle to like it. Lately, I’ve been doing a lot of brainstorming on where I want my business to go moving forward.

Ah! Take a deep break of that almost-Spring air. I originally wanted to write this yesterday, first day of March, and all that. However, I took my own advice and practiced self care as I wallowed on the couch while watching Black Sails and dealing with a migraine and a sore muscle in my neck. Sometimes, you’ve just got to accept that your plans for the day aren’t going to work out and the only thing you can do to salvage it is to take care of yourself. Taking care of yourself as productivity – that used to be a

The 5 Love Languages is a book by Gary Chapman that explores how everyone has a preferred way to receive love from other people. Some people feel love from getting gifts, others from words, others from actions. I wanted to explore how we can turn those ideas to ourselves. We all need different things to feel loved. We all have different Self Love Languages. I’ve said many times that the thing I love most about self-care is how it’s different for everyone. What I need to do to feel like I’m taking care of myself might be something completely different

It’s a cold morning here. I have the candles lit around me and my electric blanket warm on my lap. I shuffle the cards, trying to see what they have to show us this moon cycle. Look at the cards and then use your gut to choose one. Scroll down to see what message the cards hold for you. This month I am using the Everyday Witch Tarot. This full moon is powerful because there is also a lunar eclipse. It’s time to get clear on your path right now. It’s time to let this beautiful energy propel you forward. If

We’re one week into February so it’s time to take a breath, take a step back, and give ourselves a little check-up by checking in. This is a wonderful opportunity to practice mindfulness and to really sink into your body. So often we put ourselves on autopilot. We just do the things we’re supposed to do every day – eat, sleep, work, take care of the kids. We forget to be present, really present, in what we need. Allow yourself to take a few minutes to check in with how you’re feeling. How have you been practicing self-care so far

February 2nd is the middle point between Winter and Spring and called a cross-quarter holiday. Some see it as the very depth of Winter, while others see it is the awakening of Spring. She’s starting to stir, stretch, and yawn and make her presence known. For me, I see it as the first glimmer of Spring. Pagans call this day Imbolc and usually honor the Goddess/Saint Brigid. Christians call it Candlemas and honor the Virgin Mary and Jesus, others simply wait to see if the Groundhog will see his shadow. I celebrate it as a day of Fire. There are four

Happy (almost February!) Here are your self care tarotscopes for February! I used my handy dandy tarot deck (Everyday Witch Tarot) to pull a card for each zodiac sign on how you can best take care of yourself and practice self care this month. AQUARIUS (January 20-February 18) Glass half full or glass half empty? It doesn’t really matter because there are more glasses and more liquid to fill them. That’s not your only glass, stop obsessing about it! This month, take a look at where your glasses are filled to the brim, the things that are going right in

Long, long, ago when I was just starting out with my pagan-based spirituality, one of my favorite things to do every year was to go Llewellyn crazy. Llewellyn is the most popular publisher for New Age books and every year they put out a lot of products that are based on having a magical year. This year I decided to treat myself to Witches’ Spell-A-Day Almanac, Sabbats Almanac, 2017 Witches’ Companion, 2017 Magical Almanac. My word-for-the-year is Magic so I definitely wanted to begin incorporating those concepts back into my life and I figured that these would be great reminders
