The Great Migration
Some of you may have noticed that this spring, and this year in fact, has seen me very quiet on my websites and blog. I even temporarily took down services and merchandise during this time at The Witch’s Corner and The Tarot Parlour with very good reason. My beloved life partner Bob and I sold our houses in Nebraska and moved to Arizona. This undertaking involved weeks of working with realtors; cleaning out two houses of belongings; finding resolutions to an issue standing in the way; coordinating the sale and closing dates for two houses in two different cities/counties, as well as the purchase of a new house at the other end of the country; and dealing with all of life’s normal daily activities and issues along the way.
This was the biggest most exciting adventure of my life. It was physically and emotionally exhausting, sometimes frustrating, often scary and overwhelming. It involved two flights to Arizona, house hunting, and decisions that had to be made quickly and logically for everything to fall into place and magickal timing to manifest realities.
In the end we had three houses in three different cities and two states that wound up with the closing dates for all three On The Same Day. We literally packed a U-Haul, left Nebraska, and drove directly to our new house! It was incredible, and the coincidence (or synchronicity) was not lost on the realtors involved (fantastic ladies!)
We’ve settled in beautiful Casa Grande, Arizona. It’s an inspiring location for magickal, metaphysical, and psychic growth. I’m delighted to be working from this location to make a Magickal Connection with you!
A Post Before my Trip
In the wee hours of Sunday night (or early Monday morning), some of my kids and I will be headed for the Omaha airport where we’re flying out to Arizona. There are connections there now that I feel will grow with the years. I’m going to take advantage of this trip to immerse myself in Sedona for a few days and then go on to the Grand Canyon. I’m such an incurable home-body that this is a step away from my usual existence, ensconced in my old house and the busy rooms, enjoying the woodsy wild back yard, and just being surrounded by and appreciating our multitude of pets (mostly cats, 6 of them black), and all of this in perfect contentment.
But destiny calls.
I’ve been going through checklists of things to do, things to get, things to address, before leaving. The house-sitter is set with a loaded pantry and fridge and an abundance of pet supplies. Financial things are done, and strangely enough most of my monthly household bills have come in and been paid, so that’s one less thing to think about. I have to pack today (Saturday), and I have one more work-as-usual day coming up (Sunday). And then, we’re off!
I’ll be posting regular updates, photos, and video clips both at my Instagram and at my main Facebook page:
I’ve managed to get a few last minute witchy business things done, which were also on my list, including my Samhain Special at The Witch’s Corner: follow this link and scroll down, it’s right there http://amythystraine.blogspot.com
I’ve put together a charming little bag to celebrate Samhain and draw in the spirits, spirits of the season and spirits we wish to communicate with. Samhain is traditionally a time to connect with our ancestors and especially loved ones who have passed.
Honor your ancestors, and honor the spirit of Samhain,
with these magickal items.
The Samhain Special:
a white spirit dollie,
a bottle of Black Cat Oil,
and a black votive candle
*Note: The Black Cat Oil included in this offer
is safe for your skin, so feel free to wear it!
It’s my own recipe, and it

With Samhain right around the corner, the end of the year coming, so many of us are questioning so many things about our lives. There’s relationships and the changes that come with them, the doubts, the questions, the mystery of it all. Some of us have reached pivotal points where jobs and careers are concerned.
If you’ve ever asked yourself, “Is this it? Is this all there is to my life? Is this where I’m suppose to be?”… you’re more than ready for a reading to find some answers.
