Imbolc is a fire festival that celebrates the first signs of spring. Its name means “in the belly”, referring to the life growing beneath the earth. This is a time of new beginnings and setting your goals for the year. Therefore it is an optimum time of cleansing and purification. One way to incorporate this is a cleansing bath. Use a sea salt scrub to not only scrub away old skin but old habits as well. After the bath has been completed smudge yourself with a sage stick. Now you are free to start your new journey. Light a white candle and sit down and write your goals, the everyday, the spiritual and magickal.

This card can either represent someone who is a Piscean, a young person (under 25) or child who is a water sign (Pisces, Cancer or Scorpio). This person is also someone who is free in their imagination, and lives the life that they choose. But this is not someone who lives with their head in the clouds, they have their feet firmly on the ground as well. The card’s representation could appear as a person around you, an event that you will experience, or a part of you which you need to manifest.
This is another nice card to see in a reading. This card corresponds to the major arcana card of the wheel of fortune. This in combination with the meaning of the cups can represent the feeling that the person has ‘got lucky’ in issues to do with love and emotions. This is the time of cycles completed, journey’s endings and lives lived with those you love. The air is filled with serenity and peace, a time to forget all the material problems in the world. All that is important now is eternal happiness after a long hard struggle.
This is a lucky card to see in a reading. This card usually means that the person will be able to get what they want from the situation and will experience happiness emotionally as a result. This card corresponds to the major arcana card of the Hermit. This card represents emotional bonds, strengthening of romantic bonds, friendships and the consummation of sexual relationships. At this point, joy and happiness is within your grasp. This is the time to feel all emotions as if you have never felt them before. Take time to appreciate all those you love in your life. See the perfection of the world around you. Physically this card represents delight and pleasures. Worries are now in the past and the time to secure your future. However, this card does come with a warning. Enjoy life and living but don’t take it too far as pleasures without regard have dire consequences.
Here is a poem to mark my glorious return. Enjoy.
Siren of the new world,
Her kiss is vampire’s grin.
Doll faced, deep as an ocean.
In bloom, posed to sin.
Purgatory guardian laments,
Touchdown with the drying rain.
Chess queen, fever dog.
Pale enchantress, full of pain.
Do not enter the fairy trail.
I miss you my puppet master.
Pumpkin Queen, Lady Absinthe.
Tortured soul burning faster.
Hero, my lost puppet master.
I dare you, as it is the season.
After the flame dies away.
I hope you remain my reason.
Hi. I am sorry that I have been away for so long. Life really got in the way. At the beginning of the year I moved into a property that had no internet access. The intention to do the post when I was around my boyfriend’s got pushed aside amongst all the other stuff I needed to do online. While I am still in that property in the next month my boyfriend and I are hoping to move in together and I decided that I need to get back into blogging.
Yes, I am truly in love with my amazing boyfriend who is the totally yin to my neurotic yang. It has been a learning curve for both of us but the most important part is that we have been there to help and support each other and that is something that I am not use to. Giving my love to someone and getting it return to me in balance to what I am giving.
I am working now in a call centre and although it is not the most challenging job in the world. I have met some delightful people. And I have had a book of my poetry published and I am currently trying to get a novel published. Although that will have to take a back seat until the move. And I am still following my pagan path. It may not be regular to begin with I am hoping to get into back into all aspect of the blogging. And if you are interested in the book here is a link: http://www.blurb.co.uk/b/4790151-the-flowering-of-the-black-petal
