New Moon In Aquarius

Tonight the new moon will be in Aquarius. Here are some helpful guidelines when planning a spell or ritual for tonight:

I have personally been dreaming a lot lately about things I want and need in life. I feel like this new moon is telling me dream work right now is important. I’ve also gotten back in touch with two of the people that mean the world to me. My two Pieces 🙂 my partners in crime. 

It is also being said that this new moon will reveal your twin flame to you. Twin flames are so fickle. You may not even realize who that is, but keep an eye out. 

Here is a great mantra for today:

So when doing your magical work tonight, make sure that you focus on others. Do not do spells for yourself. That is not what this moon is meant to do. 

Blessed be!

You Don’t Believe? Then Don’t Worry.

So I was talking with a bar customer the other day and he made the statement “everyone who believes in astrology is crazy” and how he didn’t believe in astrology. That’s perfectly fine by me! We all have differing opinions about what we believe in. What I don’t understand is how you can’t believe in something but are afraid of it. For example:

If you don’t believe in magick, how can you believe that you have been cursed? That doesn’t make any damn sense. “I don’t believe that magick exists but please don’t curse me!” Really? That would be like saying “I don’t believe in God but I hope he doesn’t smite me for saying that.” If you don’t believe in God, there would be no ‘he’ and definitely no smiting. 

So anyway, this guy continues to tell me that he believes a certain person was going to or had put a curse on him. I explained to him that was not what was happening and tried an educational route. He responded with “I don’t believe in any of that.” *facepalm. I then tried to explain that if he truly didn’t believe in magick or any of “that”, he wouldn’t have to worry about being cursed. Ugh.

Yes, I am a witch. No, I will not curse you. That completely violates the threefold rule. That would be stupid. Going dark is not something you can come back from. I practice purely helpful magick, energy manipulation, meditation, spells for healing, spells for money, etc. I might occasionally bind someone but that’s as far as I go. 

So who do I worship? 

I worship no one being. I hate that word. I draw energy from the faces of the Divine diamond but I don’t worship anyone or anything. I simply call upon them for aid in whatever spell I’m working because divine energy is incredibly helpful. Yes I give thanks to those I call upon but it’s not worship. 

No, I don’t hurt people.  I also stay away from love spells. That’s a wishy washy subject. A “be careful what you wish for” topic.

My point?

People are stupid. Don’t be stupid. Believe what you want to. Your beliefs are yours and yours alone. Don’t believe in it? Don’t worry about it!

Blessed be.

Not Everyone Matters

Once you stop living your life for everyone else and start living your life for yourself, you find out who your true friends really are. Those who just wanted something from you, to use you and throw you away, suddenly dissappear, and all who remain are those who actually care about you. This number may be small, in fact it’s usually about two or three, but those two or three people are always there for you no matter what. Sometimes a person you thought was your best friend ends up being one of those disappearing acts. It hurts but you are better off for it in the end.

By trying to eliminate things that are tying me down so I can seamlessly move across the country, I feel like I’ve lost a lot of people. One person in particular has used me time and time again and now that I’ve come to terms with it, they have basically left my life completely. Over and over again I have seen this person, my best friend, destroy everything they worked hard for and run to me to save the day. 

No more. I’m not in the saving mood any longer. I don’t want relationships, friendships included, that require me to save someone. I want all the people in my life to walk beside me, not in front of or behind me. I want people in my life that support me as much as I support them. I want people who work WITH me.

“The light from the fires of the bridges I’m burning will guide my way.”

I would love to find someone that will travel the world with me. An adventure partner. Be that a friendship or a relationship, it doesn’t matter. Will I find that person here? Most likely not. I’ve burned so many bridges here in my hometown, I’m surrounded by flames. Granted those flames are giving me the strength and the energy I need to go somewhere completely new and uproot my entire life and start over.

That being said, one soul has touched mine and stoked the fire inside of me, so to speak. This soul brought my name to me, constantly challenges me to think, and gives me a steady unlimited energy stream. I don’t know where this new found connection will take me but I do know that I am better for having met them. I’m putting this in the hands of the universe. Where ever it leads, it leads. If it doesn’t go anywhere, so be it.

Start living your life for YOU and everyone you don’t need will go away and leave those who love you standing there with open arms. Remember: NOT EVERYONE MATTERS. Only a select few matter and those are the ones to focus on. Stop focusing on how other people see you and just BE you.

Blessed be!

Risk It

Oh so true. Pure happiness is way too rare and way too precious to not go after. If you never take the chance, you will never reap the rewards. The worst thing that can happen is you make a mistake. But guess what? Mistakes are how we learn our lessons in life. Don’t miss out on an opportunity because you are too scared of failure. 

Let’s look at the word FAIL. I cannot remember where I saw this but the word FAIL stands for First Attempt In Learning. Remember that movie Meet The Robinsons? The characters were so excited when the pb&j machine blew up. They were screaming “yay you failed!” Keep that mentality. In order to succeed you must first fail.

Take the risk, make the jump, and live life to the fullest.

Blessed be!

Raise Your Vibration Part 2

You are probably sitting there thinking “Well that’s great and all, but how do I accomplish raising my vibration? What does it mean?” 

Every soul buzzes at a certain frequency. Everything living and non-living has an energy, or at least the ability to hold energy. Crystals, for example, have a natural frequency of their own but are also charged by their owners. 

So how can you stop living at a low frequency? Here’s something I found very helpful in my journey:

If you feel yourself getting low, go dancing, hug a friend, cuddle with your pet, do some arts and crafts, write something, go take a walk outside and just listen and feel what mother nature has to offer, take a deep breath and re-center yourself. “Oh but I’m so busy. I don’t have time for that.” Yes you do. I live a very busy chaotic life yet I’ve started MAKING time for these things and I’ve really felt and seen a difference in myself. People close to me have noticed a difference too.

Just do it.

Blessed be!

Raise Your Vibration

Came across this today. This is what I am always trying to explain to people. Just feel it. Raise your vibrations, get right with the universe. 

The universe constantly speaks to me not in words but in feelings. Since I have started letting the universe do its thing, I have been much happier. 

Someone asked me about a week ago how I know what the universe is trying to tell me. “How do you know the universe is actually leading you? Is there some kind of signal it gives you?” Yes, actually there is. It’s called gut instinct. My gut has never failed me…not once. Everytime I have ignored it, life hasn’t been pretty. 

Go with your gut, raise your vibrations, trust your instincts…they are there for a reason!

Blessed be!

Wolf Moon – January 12th

 

One thing I am going to commit to this year is celebrating all of the full moons.  They have so much to offer us if we just take the time to really understand and work with them.

The Full Moon is best used for banishing unwanted influences in your life.  This of it as ‘shining a light’ on issues or challenges.  It can also be a good time for creating protection magik and performing divination.  You can use this time for releasing old patterns or issues, and open the door for healing by giving energy to positive patterns you’ll put in place.  Full Moon magik can be conjured during the 3 days prior to the rise of the Full Moon, the night of the Full Moon, the night of the Full Moon and during the 3 days after.

Normally during a full moon I set out all of my crystals to cleanse them.  I have also started making moon water for cleansing and purifying during the time when the moon is not full and I need a fast solution.

The first full moon of 2017 falls on January 12th and it is the Wolf Moon.  In Native American tradition, this time of year was a time of hunger.  This moon gets its name from the wolf packs that would howl outside of villages during the snowy season.

It is really hard to find any rituals regarding the Wolf Moon.  I have found through some research that this moon is more in tune with rebirth.  Since I like to use fire, candles, and herbs in all of my rituals I would probably start off by writing down things that I want to “get rid of” in my life and burn it.  I came across one ritual where it said to find three items that represent what you want to leave behind and bury them under the full moon.  I feel, however, that burning something is a better way to get that energy back into the universe.

My final opinion…have a bonfire.  Invite a few friends over and have them bring something to burn.  Enjoy the energy surrounding you and soak it in.  Watch as your negative influences burn in the fire.  You can cast a circle if you wish.  Make it your own.  The best part about being Wiccan or Pagan or what ever you want to classify yourself as, is that you get to do these things how you FEEL they should be done.  If you want to use earth as your element in this one, bury your items or list.  It’s up to you.  There is no right or wrong way.

Welcome 2017

I know that I’m not the only person who is glad that 2016 has come to an end.  It was a very rocky year in which a lot of things changed.  The biggest change that happened for me was that I decided to leave my teaching career.  It was the best decision I have made in a very long time.

I have since gone back to bartending and I honestly could not be more happy.  I enjoy going to work every day.  I thrive on chaos, so working behind a bar satisfies that need.  No two shifts are the same; I get to meet new people daily, and I get to use my knowledge of mixology.  Having a math oriented brain makes mixing drinks very satisfying and simple.

2016 brought the most amazing people into my life.  I met two wonderful Piceses who mean the world to me (even though we do not talk every day),  I’ve met a wonderful, beautiful Cancer who will become my new roommate very soon, and I’ve met two wonderful Scorpios who share my life goals and dreams.  I also met a Gemini who was the first person to ever understand what I go through on a daily basis being an empath and suffering from depression and anxiety.  These people have changed me in ways I never thought were possible, and I wouldn’t trade them for the world.

2016 also brought heartbreak.  My relationship of 3 and a half years officially ended right before Thanksgiving, although in both of our hearts it ended over the summer. Even though I have spent the last two months crying daily and going through our home separating our belongings, it has been a freeing experience, and I have had the support of loving and caring people.

The past couple of weeks leading up to 2017 have been stressful, depressing, and chaotic, but also very revealing.  I am starting to live healthier, cleaner, and happier.  I have gotten back into yoga, I am eating healthier, and I have started back up with my wiccan practices.

So, with that being said, welcome to my blog “Soul In the Fast Lane”.  I will be sharing my journey of spiritual development here.  I hope that you will enjoy taking this journey with me as I find out things about myself I never knew before, try to overcome my depression and anxiety, figure out more about what being an empath really means and how to handle it, and as I make changes to live healthier and happier.

Welcome 2017 and Blessed Be!
