2020 vision: double this popular tarot tradition for extra insight

“Happy new year” just doesn’t seem like enough of a greeting this time! Not only are we entering a new year, we are entering a new decade, and not just any decade – one that is also an angel number! I have been paying more attention to angel numbers recently, and 22 is the one that I have been seeing around most frequently. (For those of you who are new to angel numbers, they are numbers that often appear repetitively and are considered to be messages with underlying meanings or guidance.) The number 22 is popping out of 2020 with some vey good omens indeed!

The number 2 has long been associated with balance and duality. When I started researching 22 as an angel number, I noticed it was frequently said to pop up as a reminder that we are able to manifest and multiply the goodness we are meant to bring to this life. This number calls on us to trust our inner wisdom while we create the balance in our outer world needed to make our dreams a reality.

So let’s start off this magical year with a reminder that we are all high-vibrational beings with the gift of life and the ability to create. So much of daily life distracts us from remembering that we are magic! Don’t forget!

Celebrating my two-year anniversary with myself: A love letter to being alone

Two solid years without a date isn’t typically regarded as a celebratory occasion. While today’s women aren’t exactly facing the same societal pressures to get married as urgently as in the 1950’s, we haven’t exactly shaken the assumption that being single makes you sad or somehow incomplete. It’s hardly thought of something to be proud of. Until now! I’m here to confidently let you know that taking time to fall deeply in love with yourself is the absolute shit. That’s right, it’s time to spill the full tea on my dating detox / hookup hiatus / conscious celibacy / man cleanse / best two years of my life so far!

I believe in me!

A friendly reminder to believe in yourself!

Hi!!! How’s everyone feeling right now after that big major moon??? I heard it was intense for a lot of people — myself very much included! Sometimes I get caught up in the intensity of life and stress and I forget something really important. So here I am writing this to remind myself, and you. It is a gift to be on this earth with the ability to create. Every day is an opportunity to create! The act of living is an act of creation! In case you forgot, you are the artist, you are the magician, and your magical creation is the life you live every day!

We are lucky to be able to do anything at all. Just having the ability to contribute love and beauty to the world is a gift. You are creating just by being. And anything else you do on top of that is bonus points!

So believe in yourself, believe in your ability to be the artist of your life and know in your heart you are doing the best you can every day.

Say it with me: I BELIEVE IN ME!

Your Guide to the Year Ahead: The Essential New Year Tarot Spread

Congratulations! Whether you feel like you kicked 2018’s ass or it kicked yours, you made it through this year and it’s on to the next one. There’s one tarot ritual I have made sure to do right around the start of the new year for over a decade now: the yearly tarot spread. My mom taught me to read tarot as I grew up and although she was the one to introduce the concept of a New Year Tarot spread to me, a recent Google search revealed that it is in fact very much A Thing. So I won’t claim this as an original idea or concept at all, but I still feel very inclined to continue to spread the word about this yearly ritual that I have gained a tremendous amount of value from and highly recommend you try (if you haven’t already).

journal meditation

Where do we go now? This post-solstice journal meditation will carry you out of the darkness and into the light

The darkest times are over, really: December 21st brought us the longest night of the year, also known as the winter solstice, and with it, the year’s longest visible full moon. To see the culmination of our darkest nights meet the bright glow of our fully illuminated moon was a powerful reminder that just as the sky can move from shadows into light, so can our consciousness. It is no new school of thought to view the end of the year as a time to shed what is no longer serving us, and direct our focus where it is truly needed. But this isn’t just a time to make a new year’s resolution and call it a day (or night); it is a time to reflect inward on what truly matters to you, and how you can move forward with intent to better align your life with your soul’s purpose. This journal meditation will assist you in processing what you have been through, so you can learn from it and decide where to go from here.

Let go during the full moon’s afterglow

Do any of you feel affected by the full moon? I catch myself feeling my strangest at times when the moon is nearly or actually full. Sometimes my feelings are so intense I just want to sleep them off. The night of and three days before and after the full moon are energetically powerful times, so much so that I hardly want to do anything at all! So I came up with a gentle full moon ritual that even the most weary witch can muster (also useful up to three days after the full moon).
