Merry Yuletide Greetings!

on
So, Yule (Christmas) is upon us at last and the general consensus from the folks I am meeting is that most are … underwhelmed.  I think the general lack of expendable income for gift-buying has resulted in people really opening their eyes and SEEING, maybe for the first time, just how commercial and overbloated this […] [Read More]

on
During the past two weeks, I have fielded several out-of-state calls from people dealing with negative energies/entities AND my shop is almost out of sage bundles, as folks have been coming in and buying them by the handfuls.  So, I guess it is time for a quick review of how and why we cleanse our […] [Read More]

Change and Conscious Choice

on
Change, like it or not, is being thrust upon many of us – and the results,  in many instances, are both exhausting and frustrating.   Changes in one’s communication style, change in personal relationships, employment status, attitude, lifestyle … it goes on and on.  And as we aspire to become our “higher selves” it often means that doing things […] [Read More]

Moving Toward 2012 – And Beyond

on
As both a mother and home/shop owner I have watched as over the past two years dramatic and frightening changes have taken place globally in the economic, political and environmental arenas.  Like most small businesses, my little gift shop “Talisman” located in Monroe is service-oriented and I meet with many people on a daily basis.  The spiritual nature of […] [Read More]

The Cardinal T-Square is Here – and wow, is it ROUGH!

on
We are in the midst of a planetary alignment which began in May and whose effects will last until the end of September … and then some.  While every one of the twelve signs of the zodiac is being affected, the cardinal signs of Aries, Libra, Cancer and Capricorn are feeling it the most.  And […] [Read More]

Separating Free Will From Divine Will – Exactly Who is in Charge Here, Anyway?

on
As a Wiccan, I am forever saying that it seems the older we get the less likely we are to fire up the ol’ cauldron.  For every action there is a reaction and one must weigh the pros and cons, trying to see the issue from every conceivable angle, before seeking to tug the threads […] [Read More]

Wicca, Neopaganism & the Changing Face of Spirituality

on
On April 21st I addressed a group of students and an auditing professor (their actual professor was stuck in Scotland due to ash from the Iceland volcano) at Yale Divinity School in New Haven, CT.  Below is the lecture, which I “filled in” from my original outline, in hopes it might be of some interest.  It turned out […] [Read More]

“Brother of the Prodigal Son” Syndrome

on
This afternoon at Talisman I was doing a reading and in the course of conversation, I noted that many of us have what I am calling “Brother of the Prodigal Son” syndrome.  We are the ones doing all the right things – being responsible, playing by the rules – and true, doing good is its own reward - but it would […] [Read More]

2010: Year of the Metal Tiger

on
When I first explored Chinese Astrology (and by “explore” I mean read the back of a paper placemat in a Chinese fast-food restaurant!) it struck me as being quite simplistic.  However, in Western Astrology, you don’t get an accurate personalized overview of an individual’s traits until you take into account the rising (ascendant) and moon aspects of […] [Read More]
