⭐ My 777th photo: It’s a picture of a wish list I made a year ago and the Law of Attraction somehow brought most of these items to me over the past year without me making any great effort. :-) Filled with gratitude and feelings of having been blessed. Write out on a piece of paper all of your dreams and wishes. Allow them to happen over time through the #LawofAtraction. 777 is the sign the universe had given me of luck and chance and magic, to say, “You’re welcome, divine path maker.”

Enjoying my morning. I think every nature devotee should enjoy the morning, for it represents the new day, the moment when the sun returns to us from its voyage in the underworld. Each new morning is a brand new start, a redo, a do-over, a fresh beginning. We have the chance to start clean and try again from yesterday’s failures. We’re able to forgive and let go of the grudges of yesterday. The morning is a spiritual moment, where we too come from the underworld of our own being, the subconscious sleep where we dreamt of adventures and beyond. I love the morning because of these qualities. It’s a time of gratitude, having a thankfulness to be alive yet another day. I think everybody should try to enjoy the morning. Anyone who observes nature can see the impact it has on the world. After all, we are a sun-centric species.
“Today, I will do my best to be loving, forgiving, humble, joyful, grateful, compassionate, wise, clever, ego-free, understanding, kind, tolerant, patient, fair, and sacred.”
I hope all can adopt this mantra. Namasté.
Happy Vernal Equinox, everybody! May Spring usher in the change we’ve all been envisioning. Don’t settle for less this year. Only aim for the highest nebula of stars. Every single person who told you that you weren’t good enough, that you couldn’t, or that you would never make it— today, realize that they were wrong. With the Sun in Pisces and the Moon in Cancer, we push back blockages with a stampeding force of wisdom, material transcendence, concentration, willpower, and the strength of a mother in labor. This Vernal Equinox has fallen under Pisces, so let our new year be full of divinity, spirituality, and an intelligent, intuitive backbone. We are the genius we’ve been seeking, we only have to have the internal courage to push past our fears and succeed in shining waves of expressive color!
The double water astrology, along with the earth symbolism of Spring represents establishing the foundation for the passions which are most tender to us. Don’t let them be the fleeting thoughts that you belittle in yourself. Believe in yourself to have the highest strength to achieve anything you set your soul to! Today, enjoy friends, enjoy family, and enjoy the world. Be grateful for a new year, clean out your mental closets, clean your house, do some yard work if possible, and welcome in the positive spirits of Spring with ceremonial incense, such as Frankincense, Sage, Lavender, or Jasmine.
Happy Ostara, Eostre, Easter, Spring, Vernal Equinox, etc. :)
Here’s a formal excerpt from The Fool’s Journey in image format to show how I envision it appearing in the book.
I am actually publishing The Fool’s journey as a chapter in my book on maintaining a spiritual lifestyle/connection using Divination, with a strong Tarot focus. I wasn’t sure where to post an excerpt, but now is the time, I guess! I decided to post it here.
New Malachite Ring. In love. Thanks “Those Nature People” in Frankenmuth, MI and Mama Earth! #pagan#wiccan#witch#occult#esoteric#magic#mysticism#paganism#witchcraft#spellcraft#dream#altar#deity#psychic#tarot#malachite#spirit#metaphysical#lightworker#newage#oldage#celtic#egyptian#norse#greek#motherearth#crystals#metaphysical (at Those Nature People)
Being writing for a few hours now, revising, and adding more to ‘Major Arcana Overview.’ Finished ‘Major Arcana Patterns,’ and I still have the last four cards to write on ‘The Fool’s Journey.’ The entire chapter alone is 26,283 words. My gosh!
Total words count now for the whole book is 95,719 words! :) ♥
Here’s an excerpt to share in my excitement.
III. What is Divination?
“Anyone who would have practiced these forms of divination would be known today as the blanket term psychic and the psychic’s method would be called a tool, but they would have been called a -mancer in the old world, which is a Latin or Greek suffix meaning “the divination of.” A person who reads the cards would be academically called a cartomancer, a person who reads the runes could be called a cleromancer, a palmist could be called a chiromancer, and a person who gazes or sees into an object such as a crystal ball would be called a scryer.
“The enchantment in divination is not only in its study, fascination, and practice, but its ability to be newly established out of creative chaos. For example, I was in the fruit and vegetable market the other day to pick up some snacks for the evening before I met a friend for breakfast when I noticed a Macintosh apple that had a peculiar scar on it. It was a thick, curving line that originated at the base of the apple’s bottom and went outward. To me, this had been a sign, something significant for me to know that day. I had pondered the thought. I couldn’t extract much from the shape of the scar other than thinking of a worm. I recalled the symbolism of a worm, but I had felt it wasn’t applicable to my day. I pondered more until an idea had been formed. What if there were other apples that had scars in peculiar shapes or fixed symbols that one could read as a form of divination? I looked and saw some, but I wasn’t interested. I had no reason to dismiss the idea but actually adopt the idea and try it again. I realized that the ring around the apple wasn’t a symbol for me to understand but merely a catalyst for thought.”
What I sent to this page and was flagged as spam. This page is posting spells and making a mockery of the neo-pagan/wiccan communities, as well as rootworkers and witches [who aren’t hellbent on ego].
“I hope you and your followers know morally that this is the corruption of Free Will.
If one was meant to do something or be something, magic doesn’t need to be made. That would defeat the purpose of Free Will and Destiny; it was meant to happen. We cannot alter the freedom of cosmos, but we attempt to influence it. Such still leaves room for Free Will to be exercised.
Teaching Dark Magic, especially involving Love, is dangerous, negligent, and irresponsible. A lot of you people need to learn a thing or two before you do witchcraft if you think these spells are appropriate.
You can’t use magic to interfere with one’s Free Will. To do so would be disrespectful, naïve, karmic, and immoral.
The fact that this page has 25,000 likes and is called “The Craft of The Wise” and is handing out silly spells (of Dark/Black Magic) to people who probably don’t know any better is highly alarming.
And to the people who flagged my original posts, shame on you. This page should be shut down if it keeps posting silly spells that will have some highly serious karmic repercussions.”
UPDATE: To make it very clear, I’m not Wiccan nor do I follow its rede because I would be Wiccan. I am a Neo-Pagan-based Mystic with a lot of other influences coming in. I would follow its rede by coincidence, as both the rede and my background concur on the Divine Principles of Justice. This post wasn’t meant to scold or dictate how people are supposed to conduct themselves as people should know right from wrong. Magic is metaphysical so often people forget that just because its beyond the physical, there are no rules or consequences. Yes, there are, no loop hole for you. If you stab someone, expect punishment. The same goes for magic. If you do dark magic, expect Karma to greet you. Karma isn’t a belief you can opt out of for immunity like a superstition. It’s a Universal Force which stills affects you just like how if you choose not to believe in gravity, it’ll still be there. You cant go around doing whatever you want and expect for it to be ok. That would be childish.
People should know by common sense that casting a spell to get revenge is the same as punching someone in the face. There are consequences to all of our actions. People with any common sense or morals should know that doing a love spell to make someone love you is the same as kidnapping them, tying that person to a chair, and never letting them go even though they don’t like you and have a desire to leve. If some of you don’t have a moral compass that is geared to Supreme/Divine Love, Karma, Free Will, and Justice, shame on you.
Since I was little, around two-years-old, I have experienced the paranormal through many encounters, especially when I reached psychic maturity around my teens and began to discover my gifts. I can recall one of the earliest memories of walking in the woods behind my grandmother’s house, conversing with the spirits that were there. I know now that what we call imaginary friends for children were actually spirits of the deceased. Among paranormal encounters with the dead, I have also had inexplicable supernatural and metaphysical phenomena happen to me such as light bulbs exploding, otherworldly beings contacting me, deities whispering in my ears, being the medium for communication between the living and the dead numerous times, omens with revealing information, premonitions, receive prophesies, magical spells working, and cars lighting up on fire when angered.
I had my first awakening, among a few along my path thus far, when I was about ten or eleven years of age. I can remember walking in a field by my lonesome, almost intuitively led at the time by an unknown force acting upon my free will. I was magnetically lured into this field behind my Ypsilanti, MI apartment complex, a field that myself and my brother knew as thoroughly as a bird would know the sky. In this arena of grass, trees, old playground equipment, soil, and memories both embarrassing and exhilarating, I felt a pulsation emanating from the earth below my feet, coursing up into my body and becoming the primary focus of my mind. This strange emanation filled my vessel and a whispering of an ancient being whisked into my ears, yet also came from within. It was Mother Earth, though I had no clue at the time. During this fabled experience on my road to discovery, along with prior being introduced to the realm of witchcraft through the 1996 film “The Craft,” I had became fully aware of a dimension that coexisted with the one I grew up in: The realm of Spirit. This entire experience was the essence of The Hanged Man tarot card.
I am in a perpetual state of wondering, “Why am I still here doing the same things over and over with no resolve or change in outcome?” Einstein termed insanity as doing the same things expecting a different result each time. Surely continuing this relationship is insanity, no matter how much I love him and want to work things out. He has to want to work things out, too, which means doing something rather saying something. I do things all the time like trying to compromise, be fair, be logical, and try to be considerate and fair to us both in what we want and what goes on.
I used to think we were like sodium and water needing our one chloride to make us stable rather explosive, but now I just think we’re two atoms waiting to split. Arguing with him (even maturely as in a case or suit) is like arguing with a child who doesn’t know any better. He is so contradictory and double standard.
I was really pissed off during an argument over switching my studio with our master bedroom that we both sleep in. I put up a very detailed case as to why I deserve the space and how I would benefit most, which was all based on logic. His only argument was that he’s wanted a big room his entire life and it’s kind of a status thing. He also thinks that I can have the creepy, smelly, dark, damp, noisy basement as my studio. AS MY STUDIO. He gave me no logical reason why he deserves the space over me other than ego and pride. I need it for more natural light for my mental health, the space for my art things that are still packed and ritual space, the moon-facing window for charging objects during a full moon and rituals (it faces west, my current window is north), etc. So I got mad that he wouldn’t budge, explained to him that he was being illogical, unfair, double-standard, and childish, so I pulled four cards: One for me, one for him, a middle card for the outcome, and a clarity card for lessons.
Four Card Spread- Devil, Sun, 8w⇓, Justice⇓
He’s my bad habit and I should probably just leave (Devil) because he’s never going to learn or change because he refuses to budge towards my guidance (8w⇓) and nothing will ever get better, which is should be amazing (Sun), because he won’t change and I get too impatient with him to be the therapist and teacher of this relationship. So my best course of action is determine why I’m here and keep convincing myself of lies (Justice⇓) that not even I should believe?
Or perhaps I’m being biased and angry as hell and the spread is really saying that things will only get better (Sun) if I stop getting mad before he does and going off the handle (Devil) and that it’s not his fault he’s so damn dense (8w⇓) and doesn’t know how to communicate properly or know how to understand (Justice⇓).
Either way, bias or none, I get the impression that we both should be able to communicate properly without Ego (Devil, Sun). But on his side, he’s just so 8w⇓ in that he’s impatient also, but he’s actually too stubborn to change, and it may relate to that not being right at all (Justice⇓), and it’s not right. But it’s also not right when I get mad because things aren’t going my way (Devil). Yes, what I’m doing is noble, I feel, but I have to be patient and just keep explaining my side and how things can get better.
I haven’t forgotten that tonight is the full moon. This full moon happens to be in Leo, so any spellwork and magical intentions could benefit largely if one would center around emotional healing and energy restoration. Leo is such a jubilant high energy and in moon form, we have a great deal of inner enlightenment and awareness of emotional ego and patterns that we’d love to correct. But that’s not all the Leo moon has to offer, not just emotional, but deep psychological as well.
Tonight I’ll be mega busy charging my crystals, an altar rub down, doing perimeter barriers at my new townhome, long chakra spread and general tarot readings, smudging my home for cleansing, making sacred water, and a lot of psycho-spiritual healing. Getting busy while drinking cold Chardonnay. Too bad it’ll be a liner night but that’ll be more time with my higher self.
Here is a link to my Full Moon Tips which suggests many ideas for tonight, especially thinking of Leo.
I have finally gotten around to creating several new pages which organize the bulk of Cedargrass’s Tumblr posts. They are divided up into main subjects with whichever applicable categories suit them.
Thanks also to all those who follow my blog and my facebook page! The support means a lot to me. Tumblr is more so my private page, believe it or not. Here is where I express even the obsessions of my soul. Tumblr is a great way for me to access my thoughts, organize my resources, connect with like-minded people, journal, and just catalog my soul journey. I also hope soon to follow more people, but it’s sometimes hard to reach out here.
Here is a thorough Example Spread on how I interpret the cards.
- Consciousness- understanding, knowing, wisdom, enlightenment, divine.
- Mind/Psyche- psychic, perceiving, visualization, imagine, sixth sense.
- Ether/Voice- communication, truth, manifesting, expression, voice.
- Air- love, unity of chakras, forgiving, accepting, compassion, self-love.
- Fire- achieving, ideas, self-esteem, power, confidence, extroversion.
- Water- sexuality, creativity, relationships, reflective, be yourself.
- Earth- grounding, survival, materialism, foundation, home, health.
- * Aura: The significator, you as a whole.
- A Past: Who or what caused [or is causing] the chakra’s current state.
- B Present: The chakra whether balanced, imbalanced, or damaged.
- C Future: Actions to perform on how to remedy or maintain the chakra.
- D Summary: Long-term outcome for remedial or maintenance actions.
