There are time when it feels like the storm will never end and you will be stuck in the hard of it forever! This is when I fall back on the most basic practices I have. Card pulls and looking at the energy they carry.
It is not the time to judge anything if you want to weather the storm in your life. It is about navigating with as little judgement as you can bring in. As a human being it will be hard to do, but it really does help.
Iris of the Rainbows can help you out with this.
No storm lasts forever it will end. In times of big change you sometimes have to go along with what’s happening and do your best. It can be hard to direct your change when you don’t have enough energy to get through the day.
Here’s what I keep having repeated over and over….
Pull back and think it through, haste is not where it is at.
Push it back it if it creates more space. Now we all don’t have this luxury but it comes to the next one.
What needs to happen? What doesn’t need to happen? Not going to starve, burn the house down, end the world?
Then you can push it back.
Find space where you can and go deep it is the internal that needs the attention now not the external. Focus inward and dive deep into you.
I’ve been behind on a couple of projects but here’s the thing it did not kill me. It let me take the time I needed to rest and get some extra sleep. The shifts that are happening are internal and that means paying attention to what you truly need.
Space to create
You are creating who you are even if you don’t realize it. It is in the stripping it back to basics that you make space for you to work with the shifts coming in. June is the month where you start to finish the set up that started in April for Eclipse Season in July.
Know yourself as a creative and let that in. Creativity takes so many forms, don’t limit the definition of it. It can be as simple as how you live your life. In how you manage chronic conditions. Think in broad strokes about creativity.
Sacred:Scared came out of the anti-abortions laws that are being passed currently.
They scare me.
Women go back to not being a sovereign entity.
My early art from the ’90’s comes out of my identification with being a feminist and exploring the divine feminine. Women are sacred and holy in their whole beings. Red representing menstrual blood and masks/veils were a big theme.
The blood of life from the womb and the life of women’s souls and the lack of sovereign over their lives and bodies. I find myself circling back to these themes again and revisiting them. Needing to paint some less refined work that is more raw and less fussed with.
Ripping open the wounds that have never healed for women. The wounds of rape, battery, death, less pay, etc. Women overall do not feel safe they may not live their life completely from it. But it does have an impact on what we do and when along with the how.
I dream of a world where women are sacred and equal.
Feeling it all? Check out this week’s video Light Language for Joy and Gratitude. Sometimes the heavy feels need to be softened by kinder emotions.
The Cosmic Shadow Light Forecast is based in spirituality not being a luxury. Spirituality should be used everyday and be the pillar of your life.
Because when things get challenging it is all those practices you get to fall back on. Been here and having a strong spiritual framework to support me made a big difference.
It supports me when the energy to get through the day was not there after Dad died. The practice in monthly Cosmic Shadow Light Forecast reminded me to watch how I treated myself and that self love is an imperative.
The Cosmic Shadow Light Forecast is aimed at helping you create practices that work for you.
It teaches you to modify practices to be a good fit for you.
Get empowered with a monthly reading and suggestions to support yourself through crystals and grids. It brings in teaching via webinars. Connects you to the divine with ritual.
Be empowered. Be spiritual. Be grounded. Be intuitive
Know that you can trust yourself to be all you do and manifest what you want.
Where do you want to be in a month, two months, three? Where?
You want to start thinking about that so you can get where you want to be. Change that you sit back and let it happen means you get change. I talk about this all the time but it is so true.
You will get more out of a consistent active practice with anything. That includes transforming your life. Trust that you know enough to figure it out. Support and tools are often what is needed more them being told how to do it.
What works for me may not work for you and that’s fine.
Because you aren’t me and I am not you. That difference in lives lived and the current story all play into it if you need more support pick up a Cosmic Shadow Light Forecast.
This week’s video is about trusting yourself and checking with your heart.
The Reveal is here!
This month’s deck is The Keepers of the Light.
Faith – Humanity and Benevolence
“Stay calm. Trust the good in yourself and others. See the light in the world.”
It is time for you to bring gratitude for a while and focus on the good stuff in life. Fill yourself up with the wonder of the world instead of getting lost in the busy confusion that life can bring in. Flip the script on your bad no it sucked and was horrid, find what the wonder in it, a feather, sunset, a stranger smile, etc. Where are you focused and is it working out for you? How can seeing wonder make your day?
Hilarion – Divine Healing
“Honour your sensitivity. Retreat to recharge and heal. Your light can support others.”
This popped in my Hilarion is hilarity. This is the random stuff that happens with clairaudience. I pay attention to it. Which makes me think if you picked Hilarion this month you need have a good laugh. Laugh until your abs hurt and you are crying. Get out and have some fun. Levity and fun can heal it isn’t all digging deep into the shadow of self. Right now you need the mirth and the yes a good laugh. What’s been way too serious in your life? How can you find the humor in that?
Archangel Micheal – Trusting Heaven
“You are safe. Angels stand close. Surrender your concerns and allow a miracle to occur.”
Are you shutting it down? Fear will keep you in place real fast. It will not let you move expand or grow. Because at the root of it most internal fear, not all, but most is rooted in keeping your safe. Safe means right where you are in the known. When you move into the unknown it can be scary and feel so unsafe. How can you move out of that fear? Bring in love and compassion instead of block busting and tearing it down. Fear and protectors feel safe when you are gentle with them. Talk them through it as you do it and why. You will feel better and your protectors will ease up and let you do what you need and want to. How do you deal with your blocks? Do try to destroy them? Can you see how they are part of you?
There was a ton of energy starting to move around and shift.
You can resist it, which frankly is one big OUCH! on several levels waiting to happen. I’ve tried that route it was total suckage.
Or you can go with it. You can flow with the energy and the shifts happening. It will feel like the more difficult choice as you protectors chime in and tell you this. It is not. Go with it and tell your protectors how okay this is and how awesome they are for caring.
Letting the protectors know they are safe will get you farther then shutting them down and making them go covert in their fear.
May is the month to work what opened up in April. It is the month for you to participate in what shifts and is opening up. Know your potential is not limited to what you think. Know you are ready.
You are getting ready for what’s coming up in a couple of months. The more you are willing to shift now, the easier it will be later on.
In so many ways you need to trust yourself and not get it twisted into doubt. It is easy to freak out after a moment of clarity. Trust the moments of clarity and brilliance that show up. Do not talk yourself out of your intuition or your gut hit.
When you start to do that remember when you talked yourself out of your intuition or didn’t pay attention to your gut hit and how did it work out.
Trust yourself to know what is right and good for you!
You got this!
Believe in yourself!

Half off tarot & oracle card readings!
They are the things that find you and have meaning. You can use them to create magick in your life.
Picking things up and taking them home is a practice that I’ve had since I was a kid. From random china from a homesteaders abandoned home to the goat skull that still had sinew on it (I was 8 and insisted I must have it), to the beautiful wood whorl on the side of the road.
This is a practice that I’ve done in the country and the city.
Flower magick in the Avenues picking the neighbors flowers as they go to seed. Was one of my favorites along with naming them in Latin.
All sorts of oddities can be found in the city and the world you live in. The trick is to pay attention.
This can be the base of a spiritual path if you chose to follow them.
Learn how to use the things you find that have meaning in your life.
Create grids out of found stones.
Make sacred geometry of sticks
Use bones to connect with animal energies
Feather to clear your energy and bring in clarity.
Join me May 8th for the Sticks, Stones, & Bones Workshop at 5 PM Mountain, 7 PM ESt.

Tarot and Oracle card readings should be read, read again, and then again. Different aspects pop out and up as you go through the process of interacting with the energy that gave me your reading.

When I started working on the Water Creatures zine I knew I wanted a comic book aspect and that’s when Feminist Mermaid Convos came into being. What would they talk about and how could I base them in reality?
They’ve been so much fun to work on! They have also been challenging.
When you do something new it stretches your boundaries in a really safe way.

Take a good look at what you are creating in your life! That means you can tweak it when you need to and stay on the course that’s working for you. Detours aren’t bad they simply mean you needed to learn some more before you stream line things.
It is okay to take a side route if you need to. I’ve been on some awesome detours and some that weren’t but I learned so much form both types. Don’t be afraid of learning it is good for you!
Keeps your brain frisky!
Am I on the Right path?
Now the Reveal!
This month’s deck is the Ceccoli Oracle, this deck only has numbers, no names. Did you miss last week’s video It’s Raining retrogrades? Catch it here.
I gave it my all and then it fell flat. That hurts and feels really horrid, no one wants to be here. People go out of their way to never go there and don’t put anything out just in case it fails. When you give it your all that’s a gift to you, you can feel like you fail but that is where you can learn. Learning is where you need to take what you are working on and look at what you would change to reinflate your effort. Failing is not the end it is a new beginning with a wiser you. Where have you failed and how did it make you better?
Who do you need to rescue? Are you supporting others and are they supporting you back? There may be times when you need to support more then you get but really in any relationship it does need to be a two way street. You also deserve to be supported too. Look at how this plays out in your life with loved ones and friends. Are you the one who is always supporting or is there a balance here?
What’s making you freak out? Is it real or is it one your protectors thought up to keep you safe? There are real fears and then the ones that are created in the head. The fear is there to keep you in a place you know because it is safe. It might not be the best but it is what you know and that can often equate to safety. Know why you are doing or not doing and if what you really need is a big dose of action steps. Where do you hold back due to fear?
