5 Ways to Build Intuition

I think our intuition guides us to the places of profound growth. Sometimes, this growth is knowing that when we follow and trust our instincts we can be rewarded. But it is also acknowledging that even in moments of uncomfortable growth there is a rhyme and reason for each process. We can’t see the entirety of our lives in every moment and for good reason. Many things we experience are essential to guiding us appropriately into the futures we are creating – but if looked at as in individual event perhaps we wouldn’t opt in.

#MOONMOODS – Mabon, Mars and Libra

We start off the height of autumn with a Sagittarius moon in Waxing Crescent. This is the moment we have for the rest of this cycle to set our intentions and get clear on what it is we want to be working on. Sagittarius can be a blessing and a curse here, knowing we have what we need to take aim but also wanting to stop and explore everywhere on the way.

Spell vs Ritual

All in all, life is what you make of it. Spells and rituals don’t need to be in a realm outside of our personal practices and understanding. Although we may be burying less chicken bones and spreading fewer ashes, we still hold immense power in the present moment to use our magic in benevolent ways to grow our lives and tune into who we need to be to hold space for these energies.

WTF Are the Akashic Records?!

Simply put, they are a Record of our existence.

This record isn’t like our birth certificate or school transcripts – it goes beyond this life time.

In fact, the Akashic Records go beyond linear time as we know it. They go into our ancestors on earth, and our ancestors in the universe as well… There are theories in realms of spirituality that believe we also have cosmic histories that we are attached to. All of this, including select trajectories of the future are available to “read” in the Akashic Records.

July Taroscopes

There is a strong current of gratitude in July. Every sign has it in some way – being grateful for what we’ve done, where we’ve come from, what we have. Just allowing ourselves to be humbled and aware of what we’ve built for ourselves. This is a time to slow down a little bit and give ourselves the love and dedication we’ve been giving to our passions and ideas. We are an irreplaceable part of everything we do, and while there has been a lot of behind the scenes work going on it is now time to recognize all the work thats also gone into the development of being who we need to be for these next stages. Take a deep breath.

June Taroscope

“What is powerful about Gemini is that they are always living from a place of “what is my truth in this moment?”. They may not be great at keeping plans, but they are great at being fully present in whatever it is they choose to do. “

My Top Three Spreads

Tarot is so interesting to me. It mixes numerology, symbology, serendipity, psychology, and energy. Basically a whole clusterfuck of things …

Womb – A Poem

“Do not mistake our places of creation for your labyrinths of ways to escape yourself”

MAY TAROSCOPE

A taroscope is my personal mash-up of astrology and tarot reading. I take into account the “major transits” (or at least the ones I am aware and knowledgeable about) going on at any given time for an overview, then pull 2 cards for each sign – the energy you’re bringing and the challenge you will face in this.

Under The Callous Preview

“Forests’ strong intuition, coupled with her poetic dialogue is both unique and charming… She relates easily to others just as others will relate to Forest in her most recent book of poetry and prose – under the callous. It is beautifully written, raw, and deeply real. It will absolutely leave you open-hearted and wanting for more.” – Olivia Chelsea

PLAYLIST / “2019”

As a new addition to everything I do here, I’m adding in an audio sector. This will cover playlists I’ve curated or found with songs and sounds I love, podcasts I’m on, and spoken word pieces I’m working on.

My Casual Relationship With Rape

Not all rape is violent. You don’t always know when it’s happening. It’s hard to wrap you head around. You do not feel like a changed person all at once. Your world doesn’t always shatter. Sometimes it splinters and you slowly pull out the pieces – sometimes waiting while your skin pushes it back to the surface. You try and rid yourself of it, and sometimes it takes a while for it to be apparent what exactly that means.

SYMBOLOGY / Heart-On-My-Sleeve Denim Jacket

*NEW POST* I’m a sucker for symbolism. My love and belief for symbology is everywhere in my life – from my tattoos, to the colours of the food I eat, to this vintage Levi denim jacket I’ve had since I was a teenager and have overhauled.

PDA

You’ve started the rhythmic counting in your head that you picked up in fourth grade when you started percussion. One, two, blip, four, blip, two, three, four, one, blip, three, four…

You whip your head around. What did you just hear? Was that the front door closing? Is someone home? You realize it was nothing and become aware of the heavy beating in your chest, your shallow breathing. Blip. (Were you doing this before?) It was probably nothing you reassure yourself -blip-, as you pick little pieces of chip and paper off the ground that have collected there since last night. Blip.

How To Live In 400SQ Feet

You have to be accountable for everything that does and doesn’t happen because there is no where else to put the blame – including if the energy of your home doesn’t feel right. In less than 400sq feet, there is no where to run or hide.
