Visible and vocal

I drew the Queen of Swords this morning. I was feeling sad and, for some reason, full of shame. As I comtemplated the card I started to write this which encompassed the qualities of the Queen of Swords and has some autobiographical qualities... The Queen of Invisibility What life has she had that she faded… Continue reading Visible and vocal

The alchemy of success

There is some wisdom working its way through at the moment specifically through Tarot. Today I was drawn to a new deck Tarot of the Old Path, not only illustrated by a woman but conceived by Wiccan practitioners imbuing Pagan wisdom and symbols within its 78 cards. For my reading this morning working with the… Continue reading The alchemy of success

The First Solar Return of RSL

Well here we are and it's exactly a year since the shop opened its doors.   To mark the occasion we had a small sale last week with some bubbles and delicious home-made cake made our resident Angel and healer, Loretta McCabe. Looking back over the last year I have learnt so much about making a… Continue reading The First Solar Return of RSL

Pop Up Love

Saturday 13 February saw another successful community event for the burgeoning RSL Collective. For this we ‘borrowed’ the unit next door so we could spread (the love) along the first three Units of the freshly painted Queens Parade in Willesden Green. As I truly know (and am making a business from it), Valentine’s Day brings… Continue reading Pop Up Love

Valuable

The multi talented Ann Theato, tarot reader, psychic and medium and creator of beautiful hand-made tarot bags and cloths (for starters) gave me this message today. It was one of those moments where it hits you that you knew this and you will also know this: "Lightworkers- You've been doing this work for many many… Continue reading Valuable

Planning with Pentacles

It's been a juggling day today. This is good. Reminds me of the Two of Pentacles in Tarot. In the Rider Waite deck he is a happy soul juggling two golden coins. Positively expressed it could be about multi-tasking, bringing things together and starting to create something new. For me its been about starting the… Continue reading Planning with Pentacles

Shop-care

It was the shop's day off today but not mine. Because today the shop got a bit of TLC ready for the week ahead. I love caring for the space.  Keeping it fresh and clean,  using my Tibetan Chimes to cleanse the crystals, making sure those soft tingles and warm whispers are still evident. I've… Continue reading Shop-care

Cosmic kick

I had the tables turned on me today as a new friend (and most definitely previously known friend!) did a tarot reading for me.  It's one thing to follow inner guidance and intuition through your own readings, astro analysis etc but it is more than another when that guidance is played back to you through… Continue reading Cosmic kick

Go!

That feeling of renewal continued today as the Moon met the Sun to form the New Moon in Aries.  Like the Pisces conjunction before this occured in the last degrees of the sign thus carrying the full intensity of its qualities. I realise through my posts I might appear to give Aries a hard time.… Continue reading Go!

Wisdom by candlelight

There seems to be a pattern emerging of block and flow.  Yesterday it just wasn't happening, no matter what.  Everything I said felt "wrong", disonant. So I gave up struggling against it. Today things flowed.  In my Spanish lesson I was able to articulate myself better (apart from my horrendous pronunciation), created another tasty soup… Continue reading Wisdom by candlelight
