::SPOOKED:: I've had lots of friends and clients talking to me about feeling drained and more affected than usual by other people's energies, and I have to say, it doesn't surprise me. The veil's been thinning between the earthly plane and the spirit world since the equinox. It is a time of abundance in *all* forms, of whatever we've been reaping- for better or worse. It's important to protect our vital energies by drawing boundaries, and also to take time to rest, reflect, and make peace with the year as it stands. What we carry beyond the veil on Samhain will either nourish our souls or drain us until we say "enough". Pick up some dark stones of your choosing- obsidian, hematite, smoky quartz, or tourmaline. Practice protection meditations before you enter the dream world at night and before you start your day (imagine yourself in a pyramid of violet or golden light). This is a powerful time to pay more attention to our dreams, take care of our bodies, honor our ancestors, and release what we don't feel to carry into the cold months. I'll get back to you all with more spirit talk as we near the unveiling/Hallow's Eve. #ghosties#ancestors#ghosts#samhain#thinningveil#autumn#autumnequinox#boundaries#witchstagram#witchesofinstagram#witchytimes
(not so) fun fact: i’m probably the most sentimental, nostalgic person ever. and i’ve been thinking about all the cozy little places i’ve been and how i’d rather be there than here (on the couch, shivering). like this place: where the leaves were crunchy and the roads were bendy and everything was covered in frost from dusk until dawn. and that little abandoned house at the foot of the mountain covered in creaky trees. or that little antique store strung with christmas lights (were they left from the year before? we’re they put up weeks too early? were they year-round and jovial and twinkly every hour of every day?). this cabin that perfectly, precariously seemed to hang from the hill. and, yes, especially that one store with the coffee-scented candle (that i just finished a few weeks ago) i cradled in my hand as the wind whipped my hair on the way to the car. places are special. they stick with me.

19 The Sun
2. Dying back: now that the light is dying, and the earth is growing colder, and the crops are dying back, what are you releasing?
3. Intention: what goals are emerging for you now?
4. Resources: what do you have that will help you with this intention?
5. Protection: as the nights draw in and coldness grows, where is your place of safety? - Knight of Pentacles 🔮Deck: @goldenthreadtarot ⠀⠀
Y'all! Today marks the start of our annual Halloween countdown! We made @reeses peanut butter brownies and paired it with @luxteacompany 2nd flush Darjeeling. The fruity, grape-y flavor of the Darjeeling really enhanced the peanut butter and chocolate 😋 13 days 'til Halloween! 🎃
