“emerging

from deep within the belly of the earth

under the calm blanket of cold

a quickening

awareness begins her bith

heat and fire are forged

seeds and spark and spilling forth…

a new light

I bathe in the beauty of the beckoning of promise”

Music & Magic

Happy 2016! May it be a better year than 2015.

This 9 card spread I designed (for the 9 energy of 2016) and pulled from The Heart of the Faerie Oracle last night resonates strongly with other readings for the year, and rings true…

new moon wishes, hopes & dreams ~ music, magic & more

dreaming of finally making the album, playing more music, and touring again, look up and see the crescent new moon for the first time, and catch a picture of it, capturing my wishes as well ~ and then, a few minutes later, one of my inspirations, local alternative legends and music world friend whom I played a pre-Grammy show opening for a few years ago in Hollywood – the amazingly talented Poe (singer) – likes the very same photo on instagram ;) synchronicity is strong and the universe is wiser than we know ~ may all of our dreams take flight this moon, this spring, this year…and beyond… https://instagram.com/p/1uOQhzq0gG/
