"Change is upon the horizon, what does the future hold for me"
9 of Cups Reversed, Page of Swords Reversed and 8 of Wands Upright
I feel like this is a bit of a disappointing reading. But the cards never lie so whose to say what is gonna happen. I feel like the two reversed cups are kind of trying to get a similar message across.
They are both saying I need to do more, and take more action. I feel like I really am trying to do this though, but apparently not enough. I suppose I am all talk and no action.
Maybe its because I am not focusing on the right things. I am not quite sure.
At least the 8 of Wands is telling me that if I do take action, things will probably quickly be going my way.
It could also be, that I might do some travelling in the future? My friend and I was actually talking about this earlier today. We might catch a plane to England some time in the spring.
While it’s important to remember that money and material items aren’t going to solve all of our problems, being financially stable and comfortable can help you focus more on your spirituality by allowing you the freedom to practice more often. Manifestation is probably my strongest area of expertise when it comes to energy work. I opened my business in October of 2020 and was making around $100 a month until January of 2021 when I really started focusing heavily on the power of positive thought, and I made $10,000 in revenue that month simply by writing down that I would do so.
The following are some of my favorite and most successful methods of using and manipulating the universe’s energy for my own benefit:
🔮 Be sure of your resources! Manifestation is real and it is powerful! The universe can do some pretty amazing things. However, before you begin your practice, it’s important to be sure that you have a source through which prosperity can be achieved. You are asking the universe for money, but how is it going to fulfill your entreaty? Do you own a business? Do you make and sell artwork? Do you have a job where raises or tips are a possibility? Have you entered a giveaway or started a fundraiser? While it’s possible to receive money out of nowhere, it is far less likely than if there is an accessible source through which you are able to receive.
🔮 Writing Sentences! This has by far been my most rewarding action, and it’s also something so simple that many people fail to acknowledge it’s power. Grab a journal, green if you can find one, along with a (preferably) green pen. Cleanse and consecrate these tools, then sit with them for a while and set your intention for their use. Once or twice a day, write a full page, front and back, of what it is you’d like to attract. The trick is to write as if these things are already yours. Some examples could be:
I am blessed with an abundance of wealth.
I am grateful for my financial stability.
I always have the money I need.
I am constantly advancing in my career.
🔮 Daily Affirmations! Make it a point to start and end each day looking in the mirror and telling yourself how successful and wonderful you are. Self-love is a great way to increase the power of our spell work. If we are constantly assuring ourselves of how magical and powerful we really are, our abilities never cease to grow. Here are some helpful affirmations for abundance and financial growth:
I am wealthy.
I am a powerful manifestor.
I attract money with ease.
I am a naturally gifted witch.
🔮 Stop limiting yourself with your own beliefs! This one is definitely the most important, and maybe the most difficult, of all. The number one key to a successful path whether it be manifestation, spell work, meditation, or ANYTHING related is to BELIEVE that all that you are saying is true, and all that you are doing is going to be successful. If you don’t have total faith in the universe and yourself, you will never achieve your desires. Take time to meditate and let go of any and all self-doubt. Look to your peers for inspiration. Accept it as a self-evident truth that energy is all around us, and the universe is inviting you to use that energy to create the reality you most desire.
Whatever method you choose, remember to keep a positive mindset. Through the power of positive thought, nearly everything is attainable. Remember to love yourself, be grateful for what you DO have, and keep the faith.
Apple Cider has been a stable in my house every single year for almost my whole life.
Although I never lived in one house for more than a year or two (and oftentimes, not even in one country), I always had a yearly visit to my grandparent's house in Washington before moving here permanently. There's a beautiful pasture, a giant garden, an orchard right next to our home dripping with pears and apples comes autumn. Every year without fail, my grandpa would drag me over with a big ol' bucket and we'd gather pounds and pounds of apples. We made all sorts of fun things. Applesauce, apple cakes, apple candy, apple honey and sugar, apple syrup - and my favorite in the whole wide world, apple cider. We would get fresh herbs from a farmers market and make gallons and gallons of cider to jar for the upcoming years, because I would always, without fail, want a cup of it when I was sick, sad, lonely, or tired.
In recent years, as I study more and more about my practice, I realized that Apple Cider was basically a potion of happiness and safety. A perfect homesteading potion/spell - which is why it gives me such a sense of comfort. And now, I'm realizing that it would be selfish of me to keep such a treasured recipe to myself.
So here is what you'll need:
10 apples (I recommend 5 honeycrisp and 5 granny smith), quartered
Moon water (enough to cover apples by at least an inch and a half)
1/2 - 1 packed cup of brown sugar (depending on your sweet tooth)
Is the third and last harvest of the year. Samhain is the end of warm days and start of the darker half of the year. Nights will get long and colder. The spiritual veil between our world and the spiritual world will be at its thinnest on the 31st. Samhain is the night the dead can walk around the earth.
