City Mystic Spring, Part 2- The Long Haul

City Mystic Spring, Part 2- The Long Haul

    Last time I told you all about my sad ride down to the pearly gates of SFO, only to be turned down at the door. By that time I was already pretty tattered internally from all the change happening around me and within me. I didn’t tell you, however, about the spiritual urgings that primed me before that day. Let’s go back to Reader’s Studio for a moment… After writing my last blog entry I went back and revisited that intention card I told you about. What I wrote was a little different in wording than I thought, yet interesting. My intention for the weekend was to develop “Total self-trust, step fully into myself, completion of self-integration.” Yeah. Much taller order than I even remembered. That’s me though, always looking for the tallest mountain to climb and assuming that no matter what, I can climb it. Leave it to a Capricorn Sun conjunct South Node in the Fifth House… The thing about Reader’s Studio is that it was good for me, REALLY good for me on a number of levels. Not only did I earn back my costs (which were substantial), get the word out about City Mystic, learn a TON about Tarot, meet my personal Tarot heroine Mary K. Greer (whom I had the tremendous pleasure of being placed next to in the marketplace), make wonderful new friends with many kindred spirits, and get to bring my City Mystic • New York baby home, but I also conquered something within myself that surfaced a long time ago. Something I was not able to reckon with until...
Real Life Witch School- An Interview with Urban Goddess, Author of Path of the Witch

Real Life Witch School- An Interview with Urban Goddess, Author of Path of the Witch

Hi Friends! This fall I’ve been infused with a much-needed magickal re-awakening. Over the last few years in my Tarot work I took a necessary intellectual turn on my path as I learned, studied, practiced and researched the nuts and bolts of Tarot; history, methodologies, reading systems, practices… you name it! I was on an adventure of Tarot understanding in a worldly sense so that I could better communicate the abstract feelings I had about Tarot to the world at large, no matter what the background or experience level of the person I might be speaking with. Having a Libra moon in the third house conjunct Pluto, I receive a deep joy from thick research that I’ve come to understand is somewhat unique. Give me a pile of the right Occult encyclopedias and history books, a few days to myself, a box of tea bags and some easily-prepared food, and I might just come quite close to one (of many) version of my own heaven-on-Earth experience. It fills me up emotionally, as ironic as that sounds, and over the course of the last three years I am thankful that I’ve had such heavenly, full experiences on multiple occasions. After pouring all that knowledge and research into something as tangible as a Tarot deck, I found shortly after the close of our Kickstarter campaign that I was craving a new round of personal, interior magickal work and study. Throughout the month of October I could feel the call in my bones and knew somehow or other a renewal was coming, though I had no idea from where in the physical world....
I LOVE PARIS!!! How City Mystic Was Born

I LOVE PARIS!!! How City Mystic Was Born

I <3 PARIS!!! I was inspired to make City Mystic Tarot on my first trip to Paris in 2009. I was all by myself, fresh off of a sort-of near-death experience, or some kind of mystical encounter, when I developed gangrene in my gall bladder- (yeah, there was that… another story, another day) The Empress was coming to me A LOT after that, and I mean A LOT- meditation, healing work, dreams, visions, art, readings… you name it. I was even moved to create the Empress Project Podcast, later Magnum Opus Podcast (many episodes are now offline since I left podomatic. I’m still looking for time to get them back up one-by-one). Facebook Podcast Page lives here 😉 Anyhow, the Empress… when I was waiting in the hospital ER to find out why I was in so much pain, I made a bucket list of things I’d like to do before I die (because yeah, I have dramatic tendencies :P) . Amongst statements like “dance like no one’s watching in a grocery store” was also “Go to Paris!!!” I remembered that I had wanted to go since I was a little girl. In the summer between 4th and 5th grade I studied French by borrowing French audio cassette classes from the Public Library. I must have listened to those classes four times through. Didn’t pick up much French though. But I did, finally, 17 years later, go to Paris!   I’ll spare you the details of how Paris flooded my eyes with a beauty I had never seen before, but it also woke a deep inspiration and hunger in...
Psychic Protection and Grounding

Psychic Protection and Grounding

Hello Friends! Things around here at Magnum Opus have been off to a tremendously Chariot-esque start for 2014. It is appropriately so since we are officially in the Year of the Chariot! My mailbox has been FULL of questions since the Winter Solstice, and one of the most common questions is: “Do you know of any way to psychically protect myself from attack or negative entities?” and/or “Do you ever get lower level energies messing with your Tarot readings?” Both of these questions are really wonderful questions that beg answering on a practical level. Rather than re-write my responses in fifty different messages, I decided I would record a video instead.     Also, learn about : *The four different methods of reading Tarot *Why its important to work very carefully with strictly-intuitive readings *How to “ground in” before readings or spiritual work Make sure you subscribe to my Free Astrology Foundations Crash Course to get special discounts, my monthly Newsletter, and to keep up with the latest free content and classes from Magnum Opus!     Much Love Fellow Seekers!
