Autumnal Equinox.... the energy has shifted. Candles, pumpkins, and different decks. This is always such a bittersweet time of year to me . It is so hard to let go of the vibrant hot Summer energy..... but with Autumn comes deepening, introspection and a different kind of growth. #mabon#tarotnerd#tarotcardsreading#wisewoman
Happy Mabon/Autumn Equinox!! Even though it's hot, we're really getting into the fall spirit. We've published a few of our seasonal items up on the shop page! 🔮
Our first item of spookiness is our Hallowed Anointing Oil. Samhain is a time for reflection, magick, and reverence for the other side. 🔮
This 1oz dropper is filled with a rich, sensual oil intended to be used as an anointing oil for candles, ritual tools, or even yourself! The blend we have created is perfect to use during the time between Mabon and Samhain or Halloween. 🔮
The base oil is infused with Mullein, Mugwort, and Dragons Blood resin. Mugwort has a prominent history in relation to Samhain. It is a fantastic herb to aid in divination, altered states, and communications with spirits or ancestors. Therefore it is wise to use this oil to anoint any divinatory tools such as scrying mirrors, tarot cards, or pendulums. 🔮
Mullein is a protective and body strengthening herb so it is a great addition to any type of spirit work. Use with the intention to ground the practitioner and guard against unwanted energy or spirits. Dragons Blood enhances the personal power of the user and the intention being cast so craft your intentions wisely! 🔮
We have also included a potent blend of essential oils featuring cinnamon, clove, patchouli, and amber designed to ignite the senses. When our sense of smell is activated, it makes us more aware and attuned to our surroundings. It is key to be present while doing any kind of ritual work therefore, it is recommended to disperse a drop or two in between your palms and inhale before setting your intentions.
As a woman, it is very necessary that you choose your battles. Not every fight is to be fought, not every question deserves an answer, and not every remark deserves a retort. A wise woman sees, hears this things and keeps silent. That's what makes her strong.

In 9 days I leave for my annual 10 days in Mexico running two back to back retreats. Yea, it's a lot - considering I just led a new retreat last weekend. I've been working all day non-stop on the planning and while there is so much to do, I'm closing my computer, pouring some wine and relaxing into the reason I decided to start this whole getaway thing with @christinadunbar five years ago. Because it was my dream. My big huge f'ing dream to hydrate souls in sisterhood. Because that's what I NEEDED and this week... well, I realize that I need it again. I get that as much heart as I'm pouring into this.. every word, poem, song, prompt, exercise is also for me. I've slipped into some fear thoughts lately. I've doubted myself. I cried on the floor. Yep.. I'm human and I got overwhelmed. And it's taken a few days to pick myself up. What's come through is how much I love this work, how much it's needed in the world, and how much I care about every woman who has bravely decided to join me. I teach because I want to learn. I'm grateful for every BBGG, RHV, client who has ever shown up to connect me back to my essence. Let the countdown begin...
(Plus... since Christina Dunbar is coming back it means French fries at midnight)
Good morning buttercups! The weekend is here in Australia and I am excited to be in my studio moving back and forth between some small abstractions and my Wise Women series!! These three beauties sold quickly yesterday so be sure to follow my art page @tracyverdugo and turn on notifications if you'd like to see who emerges over the next week or so.
Have an awesome weekend!! 🎊❤️🎊
Holding the paradox of darkness and light on this most hallow of days. A tiny feather greeted me as I arrived at my temple to do today's healing work. A reminder that each moment is offering gifts; we are always walking with support if we choose to soften and notice. I see you, I honor the dark in you, I honor the light in you. I hold space for the beautiful, paradoxical and magical creature you are. Happy Equinox 🍁#healinglove#paradox#wisewoman#vedicearthmedicine#earthmedicine#shaman#equinox#lightandshadow
Sneak peak: I'm absolutely head over heels in love with this "beneficial bath bomb" by @cosplay_kittie! Made with essential oils, epsom salt, baking soda, and citric acid, these gentle healing creations make the most amazing baths ever. My personal favourite is the Muscle Mender (that camphor and comfrey combo is incredible for reducing pain) but they are all exquisite. Perfect little gifts to welcome Fall with. Ps - they also happen to be super softening for your skin!
If you've been looking for a natural/safe solution to elevate your bath time, look no further. ❤ Brittany's online shop which will be up and running by mid October!
The Persecuted In Purgatory: Wise Women Laugh Last "When, however, one reads of a witch being ducked, of a woman possessed by devils, of a wise woman selling herbs, or even of a very remarkable man who had a mother, then I think we are on the track of a lost novelist, a suppressed poet, of some mute and inglorious Jane Austen, some Emily Bronte who dashed her brains out on the moor or mopped and mowed about the highways crazed with the torture that her gift had put her to. Indeed, I would venture to guess that Anon, who wrote so many poems without signing them, was often a woman." - Virginia Woolf, A Room of One's Own
All the heroes of tomorrow are the heretics of today. - E.Y. Harburg
The world is kept alive only by heretics: the heretic Christ, the heretic Copernicus, the heretic Tolstoy. Our symbol of faith is heresy. (“Tomorrow”) - Yevgeny Zamyatin
If we have no heretics we must invent them, for heresy is essential to health and growth. - Yevgeny Zamyatin
Hello beloveds, how are you? Today’s Spiritual Doula’s mantra is: “I Love to the Fullest.” This statement definitely describes me in my present state of being.
I have grown into a woman who understands what it means to let go & surrender to love. Being confident enough to know letting go of someone or allowing someone to come closer & look behind my “veil” is okay.
Now, not everyone gets to come close enough to receive an insider's view, I realize not everyone has good intentions or is ready to receive the level of love I am able to give. But, if I am to truly enjoy love… Being love or being loved. It is okay to relax.
I am a quietly intense woman. 😂😂😂 I feel things very deeply & have not always been the best at expressing myself. Why not? Because, at times love has caught me off guard or blossomed where I least expected it.
So, as I have been releasing emotions, people, & situations which no longer are necessary for my personal growth.
I have become more at ease with allowing myself to love people as they are. In whatever stage of emotional, mental, & spiritual growth they may be.
Even when, I watch someone I love doing things I know are causing them emotional or mental pain.
I understand, it is their life journey & only they can decide when enough is enough & move away from the situation/s which are causing them so much pain.
My goal is simply to “Love them to life.” And, remember, to stay open to giving & receiving love.
Use today’s mantra to cleanse your heart & mind. Allow it to remind you to put aside fear & open the “door” for love to offer you new ways to give & receive it.
Have an amazing day. Namaste 🙂😘🙏🏽
