Oy vey. Last night I was rushing to meet my friends for dinner and drinks before we headed to see my bestie preform in a live story telling. The day was stressful and I was on the verge of tears trying to get this post up. I get a social outing with my coven once every 2-3 weeks, so I treasure this small treat of time. Also important to me is my blog and Instagram because I love creating, sharing and connecting over magical practice with you. I was working and typing away at the pizza parlor while drinking a lavender martini and chatting about astrology and how shitty our week had been (thanks Mercury in retrograde) and I was starting to feel recharged
Ahhh the holidays…a time filled with too many carbs and not enough time. When I mismanage time and don’t get my crock pot stews done I love this easy soup that takes 20 minutes to make. Plus the Asian inspired flavors are light and refreshing while still keeping you full.
I had fairly decent skin growing up. I would get the occasional pimple as a teenager but I never endured massive breakouts or painful acne. When I was around 23 suddenly my skin went to total shit. I was breaking out in small bumps that never turned into white heads and then getting massive painful cystic pimples along my chin, jaw and neck. I had no zero idea what kind of breakouts these were. It was painful not only on my self esteem (no one likes having acne) but it physically hurt to smile, laugh and sometimes even chew because of the location of my breakouts.
"Always trust your gut." This is something I often tell others and something I was told repeatedly when I was growing up.
I'm sure you've had that sinking feeling when a crisis situation happened that made you say "I knew this was going to happen!" But we very commonly let this feeling dictate our lives without properly knowing how to identify it. We very commonly confuse fear for our intuition. The problem with this is we are actually emotionally handicapping ourselves by not properly separating the two. We ALL have intuition and can harness it correctly.
Hello my beautifully burnt out Virgo babes. It's your time to shine and obsess over details of turning another year older. Have you hit all the goals you wrote out (and laminated) for the year? Have you taken on one too many projects? ABSOLUTELY! Because you my friend, you burn the candle at both ends. And then you spend an hour meticulously cleaning up the wax off the floor.
As a Leo myself the pressure is ON to bring it for this zodiac sign. I collected a mix my personal favorites while still keeping all brother and sister Leo's in mind.
It's no secret that a Leo loves telling other people that they are a Leo. What can I say, we are proud lions. We are known for our loyalty and leadership. When we create our pride of friends and family we are protective like no other. You do not want to cross a Leo. Our claws come out and we are up for a long fight, but if you are a member of a Leo's pride you know we are big cuddly kittens deep down.
Happy Birthday to all my Cancers out there! It's your time to shine (or hide in your shell, either way) I have curated a special treat for you. I wanted to share tips and products for your mind, body and soul because you, my dear crab, are a sensitive soul.
You are the best person to go on a day road trip with. Your sense of adventure is full of genuine desire to learn more about the world. You see everything with an artistic eye. You love intimate dinner parties with family and friends. You are cautious to let strangers into your personal space but once you do they connect with the cozy comforts in home you've created. You are a little hard to read at the start of any relationship. You can come off mysterious as you take in your physical and emotional surroundings. On the down side you are prone to retreat from the world during your moody spells. You hide in your shell and can let your anxiety consume you, which takes a huge toll on your mind and body, but more on that later.
