rainy full moon

It’s the last full moon of the decade, it’s rainy, and I have a night on my own. I lit some incense (yeah!), a moon magic candle (yeah!), and watered all of my houseplants, some of which are sadder than others (oops). I also decided to pull some cards — no particular spread in mind,…

jupiter in capricorn

Lately I’ve been feeling the urge to use my Wild Unknown deck; since I’ve been using my RWS “crutches” a bit in class and when I need clear answers, I haven’t been reaching for my more mysterious decks for readings.

side-by-side: queen of swords

March was a very busy month, so it’s fitting that the first side-by-side I’ve gotten to catch up with had to be March. My boyfriend and I made a swift decision to jump on a new lease so a lot of things had to go into action really quickly. (Quick editor’s note — I did…
