What does a witch do at 3:33am?

As I write this, I’m propped on my bed legs crossed yoga-fashion, with my laptop perched on two pillows before me.  I’m wearing a very purple very soft robe, sitting on very purple sheets, crumpled amidst a cozy comforter with lavender flowers and several super soft cozy blankets.  I glanced behind me to my clock on the headboard as I started typing…it’s 3:33am, the wee hours of a Monday morning.  I have to be up to commute to Omaha a few hours from now, but I’ve been asleep and woke up, and just can’t go back to sleep now (though I may regret this later during the day).

What does a witch do at 3:33am when she can’t sleep?…She draws herself a tarot card, and she records in her tarot journal.

The card I just drew… The High Priestess (reversed).

“What’s most obvious is actually an illusion.  What’s unseen is what’s most important…Look in the shadows.”

Goodnight, World.

Good Morning, World! ~ Welcome 2017, Morning Coffee, Show n’ Tell (video)

Happy New Year!  This is my first video to kick off 2017.  Forgive the lack of protocol and the informality of it all. I’m actually in my jammies, sitting on my bed, with a morning cup of coffee.  I wanted to be comfortable, and as long as the lighting was okay, why not.  My “Book of Shadows” video has been very popular; apparently people love looking at other people’s private stuff.  In this video I’ll be showing you my Grimoire (wonderful book, did it year’s ago, it’s a book of spells); my dream journal; diaries; daily tarot journal; gratitude journal, etc.  I hope you enjoy the relaxed totally informal morning chat and show & tell…I certainly did.
Blessings, Amythyst

A Tarot Reading for The Moon

I do tarot readings for tarot cards. I know, how weird is that.

A Tarot Reading for Moon:
The Moon ~ The World; Justice; Queen/wands

You send us through portals on a whim and a prayer, ignoring our pleas and screams of protest, unaware yourself of where this new passageway will take us. You just know that we have to go. You grab us by the shoulders and stand us before a mirror, forcing us to look at ourselves, our lives, and our direction with unabashed clarity and often cruel introspection. Be gone self-deception, you command. Finish what you start; wipe the slate clean; find the truth; avoid the dark places if possible…all these you whisper in our ear.

Life isn’t always fair, you state firmly and calmly, almost nonchalantly. Justice is subjective, just like art. It all depends upon your perspective as to whom is getting the fair end of the stick. Again, warnings of deception, whether coming from outside sources or from the dark corners of our own minds, filter through the symbolism on your face, the images you carry. You are rife with warnings, really wanting us to avoid the pitfalls and potholes before us, but knowing that we must choose to do so, we must choose our path, we must learn by our mistakes…and we must learn by our victories.

You tell us to get a firm grasp on life; be vigilante; be forceful when the need arises; avoid the dark side of life, the dark side of our psyche, but don’t be afraid to go there when necessity rears its ugly head. Be in control, be strong, get organized, don’t waver before duty, don’t cower before life.
