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.



Tarot: Card of the Day…HighPriestess

The deck:  Celtic Druid Tarot

Druid Craft Tarot-The High Priestess

The Priestess is telling me to get my shit together; get off my duff and use the power I have, embrace the magick, stop whining and complaining and make the necessary changes.  Get things rolling, shake things up, she says.  Feel the power, embrace the magick.  You are who you are; you do what you do.  It will be done.  So Mote It Be.

*Note: These card a day readings are not necessarily posted to give you an in-depth look at a particular card.  This isn’t meant to be a study or a lesson; you can follow the link provided for that.  This card a day theme is often aimed at just me– how does this card strike me, right now, at this minute.  What is it telling me?  How is it helping me?  The ‘card a day posting’ is often my life amplified, and I’ve realized that we’re all pretty much the same, though the circumstances are different, and how this card affects me can impact you.

Tarot Card of the Day: The High Priestess

Deck: Celtic Druid Tarot
The High Priestess (R)

Someone is draining you of your energy right now. (This priestess is standing on her head.) You might find yourself in some sort of crazy balancing act, trying to juggle various aspects of your life all at the same time. Someone (or “someones”– meaning more than one individual) is sapping you by making constant demands, demands of your time, your energy, your usually laid back personality. You’re going to have to put that dainty foot down and put a grinding stop to this, before you lose all your strength, all your power, and any other advantages you might still have.

Also…if you’ve lost a cat (or dog, etc), you’re going to find this animal very soon– they didn’t go as far as you think they did, wiley little creatures; your best time to perform a ritual or to cast a spell in the near future will be during the waxing moon– apparently you’re trying to bring something into your life, don’t waste this energy; to someone out there– don’t be afraid to touch the book, open it up, read and learn, it’s not going to bite; there is the idea of someone caught between a rock and a hard place– look within, you’re smarter, craftier, and more durable than you think you are, there is a way out, you just might have to get uncharacteristically tough to follow it; to all women everywhere– Embrace the Goddess within, don’t be afraid of the power you find and feel there, it’s your heritage, it’s your birthright, run with it…
