Imbolc Ritual

An Imbolc Ritual I promised in my last post, IMBOLC: The Quickening, that I’d post a ritual soon. So here it is. To review, Imbolc falls on February 4th, this year. It is the ancient Celtic holiday halfway between the Winter Solstice and Vernal Equinox, and symbolizes the life stirring awake in the womb of the […]

The Power of the In-Between

Mystics and sages have always known the power of the in-between. The most powerful times for magic, for example, are in-between times: dawn which is the precipice between night and day, and dusk, between day and night. Midnight is the fulcrum between today and tomorrow, noon the tipping point from morning to afternoon, and so […]

Manifestation 101

Life for the person who is aligned with her Higher Self, is a constant cycle that goes something like this; get an inspired idea, focus on it, bring it into reality, have fun with it, get another inspired idea.  One of my inspired ideas has come to life, and I just want to tell you […]

The Energy of Mabon

Autumn is officially here. But as always, I like to talk about how our own cycles reflect the seasonal ones, and what the changing seasons mean to me on a deeper level. The energy of Mabon and fall is adulthood. Maturity. The fullest level of growth. It’s harvest time. The fruits of our actions are […]

How To Get What You Ask For (and How Not To)

A while ago, I put it out to the Universe that I’d like a new revenue stream. Something that would be less work, but keep the income flowing in. Then I set about doing all sorts of acrobatics to create one. It’s not that I want to stop writing. (Although I’d love to stop marketing!) […]

Maggie and the Nice Policeman

I had a fantastic day Saturday. There was a comic-con event at my favorite store, Heroes and Villains, in my favorite small-town city, Cortland NY, only 20 minutes away. I met John G Hertzman who played General Martok in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. I met artists who had worked for Marvel and had met Stan Lee. […]

When Bad is Good

Obligatory disclaimer: My alter ego is a novelist. Now the rest of this will make more sense. Last month, I applied for a coveted and highly competed-for spot in an advertising newsletter for one of my novels, and was turned down. When something unpleasant happens like that, it’s always a big fat message from the […]

April Fool’s Day, Tarot, and Quantum Physics

That’s right, this blog post is going to compare a Tarot card to a physics lesson. I promise, it’ll be simple and easy to understand because, contrary to popular belief, I am not a particle physicist. A photon is the smallest particle of light we know about. In experiments, a single photon exists in many […]

Spring!

It’s here, it’s here! The Vernal Equinox was yesterday. Today is the first full day of spring. Daytime and nighttime are equal, and from now on every single day will be a little bit longer, and every night will be a little bit shorter, until the longest day of them all, the Summer Solstice. To many […]

Self-Sabotage Made Easy

Humans like to bitch. Actually, we love it. Our favorite pastime, I think, is complaining about all the things we don’t like. The politicians we don’t like get way more airtime than the ones we do like. And then they get elected. Because that’s the way the Universe works. What you focus on grows. It […]
