I am a witch, and I spent most of my adult life avoiding Aradia.

I know, I know. Blasphemy!

Inner Journey: 

WHO ARE YOU?

“Please… tell me who you are and what you want. And if you think those are simple questions, keep in mind that most people live their entire lives without arriving at an answer.”
— Gary Zukav

How deeply can you answer this question? Please realize that you are the only one who can answer it. No one else can tell you who you are. You must discover this for yourself. And the challenge of knowing ourselves is no easy task.

We hope this question excites rather than intimidates you. There’s so much more to you than you know at present! Isn’t this intriguing? Perhaps it’s time to go exploring.

“Mysterious and intimidating to contemplate, the human brain is the most complex thing there is and the most difficult task it can undertake is to understand itself.”
— David Noonan

“I don’t think God cares where we were graduated or what we did for a living. God wants to know who we are. Discovering this is the work of the soul – it is our true life’s work.”
— Bernie Siegel

A Note from the Universe

Avoid gray areas.

There, the path to safety is guarded by the lies of “maybe,” “sometimes,” and “I don’t know.” There is a truth. There is a way. Life is absolute, and its principles exacting. If you put it out “there,” it has to come back. Ask, and it must be revealed.

Think, speak, and move with your desires, and nothing will ever be the same.

Tallyho,

The Universe

Future
“The future is made of the same stuff as the present.”

-Simone Weil, 1968
It’s so amazing how true this is… so many times I meet people and our experiences in life have been so similar – it’s almost like we’re all living the same life – maybe in different places, or different times, but the lessons we learn are universal. And the lessons don’t change. We’ve heard them time and time again, it’s just up to us to assimilate them into our lives until we “get it.”

-Lissa Coffey

Daily Tarot: The Tower

Your emotions and instincts are working overtime today and this can distract you from doing the simplest of things. Whatever difficulties you encounter today – and they should be small ones – you will create more problems for yourself by being too psychically overactive. If someone is preoccupied with you and wishing you to have a rough day, you’ll know it but maybe not know who it is
