YOUR POP PSYCHIC SPEAKS: Your Past Can Create Your Present

Throwback Thursday – Your Pop Psychic – Your Past Can Create Your Present

From the Renaissance Tarot Deck by Brian Williams

I’ve been doing a lot of readings for women with low self-esteem lately. Surprisingly, the variety ranges from the drop dead gorgeous to the morbidly obese. You would think that these women would have nothing in common outside of their gender, but the sad truth is the thing that they have most in common is that they are too easily manipulated.  Regardless of how they appear to the outside world, inside these women share the experience of being abused and broken… and convinced that it was utterly their fault.  The two cards that show up most prominently in their readings are the Moon Card and the Devil Card.

In my experience the Moon card is always indicative of a secret, but in the case of an adult survivor of child abuse those secrets are usually deep and dark.

WITCHY WEDNESDAY: LOVE SPELLS

BY KALLAN KENNEDY 

Valentine’s Day is soon upon us. Every Witch I know is going to get bombarded with the love spell requests.   Jiminy Cricket once said, “A dream is a wish your heart makes.” A spell is very much the same, but with more focus and intent. Like dreams, spells are only good or evil according to the moral compass of the caster. Hence, the reason why most Witches won’t do them.

By ‘them’, I’m talking about spells that manipulate the will of another person. There are all kinds of self-love, beauty, and “attract-love” spells out there. Those are usually ones that a Witch will share. Most of us Witches want you to feel good about you, to find love and happiness in your life, and to be at peace. Now, that’s not to say there aren’t some folks who won’t cater to the lonely hearts club members. I’m not judging. That’s on the caster and his/her ethical code.

I love looking at old spells. I am fascinated by history and human nature. I love to explore the motivations of others and study their creativity. If you’re like me, I highly recommend “The Encyclopedia of 5,000 Spells” by Judika Illes. She really did her research for the book. It’s even now in Kindle format!

My friend Marie Bargas, aka “The Hollywood Witch” was invited to guest blog for the popular “LA-Story.com” site on Love Spells. She’s posted some really popular ones, and always does great research. (Please visit my new site HERE.)

Check it out here: http://la-story.com/2015/02/top-10-love-spells-for-valentines-day-curated-by-the-hollywood-witch-guestblog/

Be sure you like AND get notifications so she’ll show up in your newsfeed.

Love spells aren’t inherently bad. The whole idea of “good” and “evil” is relative. At one point in human history, pedophilia was part of the normal culture. At one time, it was okay to murder in the name of one’s god (and in some places, it’s still encouraged!).  If you really feel the need to cast a spell (or have someone do it for you) to make someone fall in love with you, that says more about you than them.

I recommend falling in love with you, first. Instead of feeling sorry for yourself that you are “alone” on Valentine’s Day, how about being thrilled that you are alive and that you are someone special who doesn’t need another person to love him/her in order to be complete? It’s true that like attracts like. When you can fully love yourself for all you are, you’ll find that other people want to be around you. They want to bask in your glow. If Valentine’s Day is important to you, then pamper yourself instead. Buy yourself flowers. Write yourself a love poem. Romance you this weekend. That’s the best love spell I can recommend.

Happy Casting!

Mars Goes Direct – The Stress of His Regard – Victim Shaming

mars-1326108_640 (1)

Little did I know that when Mars went retrograde on April 18 at 4.14am PDT, 7.15am EDT, 12.14pm BST and 9.14pm AEST that my triple Libra sensibilities were going to be tested to the extent that I could either rise … or self-destruct because although Mars is traditionally Venus’ adulterous lover who adores her. But, when in retrograde he can and does tend to brutalize her in retribution for not being able to completely “have” her. As you will see from my account of this time, it was certainly a passive aggressive dance of erotic attraction being punished by shame and the whips & chains of domination as balm for rejection of the mystic masculine that is not “divine,” but twisted, insecure and sexually rejected for being so damn weak. Cruelty is what was offered as replacement for a lack of virility. And the outcome had a make or break quality that could have made me a professional victim, a damaged survivor or something more … a wise woman of the world.

It all started with the break-up of my 8 year relationship. Needless to say we had outgrown each other. After a year of literally no sex replaced by his sporadic threats of suicide, I tried to exit gracefully and failed utterly. You see I have a settlement from a car accident that is about to be paid and he was going to attach a lawsuit to that … until he was advised that he couldn’t. Then he went on to complain about an estimated $40,000 that he had spent on me over the course of 8 years. Um … when that broke down to $13.00 a day (including pussy) he backed off on that track, but not until it was pointed out to him that his peers were laughing at him behind his back. Finally, he has resorted to blaming me for “bankrupting” him with my expensive tastes. Really? $40,000 over 8 years is far less than what I would have garnered had I been a real “gold digger.” I am definitely NOT a gold digger because I WAS messing with a broke nigga. LOL

Next, a supposed “friend” could not keep himself from grabbing at my breasts and trying to stick his hand down my pants during a “moving” day when I was clad in sweats trying to pack boxes. He came to my rescue after he had heard of my break-up and proceeded to try to have sex with me in the back of his car because he assumed that after a year of celibacy he was doing me a favor. It gets worse. After trying to “feel me up” during the move he went after a girl friend of mine that he drove home. She thought she was safe with him because she’s pushing 60. Instead, he tried the same things on her and then turned around and told us that we would NEVER be believed because we weren’t credible because we were psychics and women of color. Reality Check: why would I be even remotely interested in a man who was still living with his parents and could offer me nothing more than sex in the back of the car that his mother gave him?  I am single again, but I’m not desperate.

Right after that, I got served with an order to appear at a hearing in which a gay woman whose advances I have been rejecting for years, was trying to convince a court to slap a restraining on me for harassing her and literally trying to steal her Frisian horse and stuff it in the back of my ’98 Toyota Corolla. That got thrown out for insufficient evidence after an LA Superior Court Judge read her evidence and found it lacking in sufficient proof and comical to boot.  The court clerks who recorded the initial filing told me that they laughed about this particular hearing for days. After the judge dismissed all her allegations her final knife throw was that she did not like anyone contacting her PSYCHIATRIST which had the same effect as the magick word ABRACADABRA. Hint: if you are leveling ridiculous allegations at innocent people, do not protest that you don’t want anybody contacting your psychiatrist. It doesn’t help your case. And, if you are going to write defamatory blogs on me because they are a lot less expensive than paying for an attorney because no attorney is going to argue your bullshit for free, if it at all, then at least do a grammar and spell check and try to come up with a blog that looks like it’s from 2016 and not 2006, when you obviously peaked before you went into a decline that by all accounts sees you circling the drain.

Meanwhile, a black magick magician from India who so graciously offered to destroy my enemies during this time took umbrage at the fact that I refused to send him daily photographs of my vagina along with a sampling of my pubic  hairs for him to use in his “protection” magick. My refusal to do any of that caused him to threaten to curse me. Seeing as how he did not manage to stop me from being “felt up” or having to suffer the barrage of defamatory blogs from the nut case with the horse, I did not think that I was in any immediate danger, so I blocked and deleted him. I think that if I had come out of June with thousands of dollars and had watched my enemies explode like super novas I would have been impressed and feared him, but today… not so much.

Next, a black man posing as a lesbian bisexual woman on SKYPE offered me free Skype time on his bi-curious SKYPE account. When I told him/her I was NOT interested he called me a bitch.  Oh dear, after all that I’d already been through that didn’t even register as a pin prick.

Finally, this morning when I posted my relief at Mars going direct I was accused of being a Venus“man hater” by someone who I enlightened with a small sampling of my back story. Men don’t realize how much the ordinary woman suffers just for being … alive. Really. They have no idea. But as a writer, giving you an entire account of my particular journey is my way of therapeutically exorcising the remaining energy of this time which I hope not to experience again for at least another two years when the next Mars retrograde comes around. Phew.

Here are my suggestions for surviving and thriving through an onslaught such as this:

  1. Recognize victim shaming for what it is. Do not accept the burden that you did something wrong no matter what anyone says.
  2. Be accountable for the things that you did, not what people think that you did. For example, if you are attractive because you work out and watch your weight being attacked for that is ridiculous. Being attractive does not mean that you want negative attention. It means that you are taking care of yourself and predators are attracted to that.
  3. Keep things in perspective. Just because it appears that everyone agrees with your enemies it does not mean that they really do. Being strong and holding your ground and keeping your self-esteem intact is the best way to weather the storm. The truth always comes out eventually.
  4. Do not allow yourself to fall into a depression. Do things that you enjoy. Stimulate your imagination in positive ways. Keep learning.
  5. Respect your emotions and express them. Cry when you have to. Laugh just because you enjoy the pleasure and relief of that feeling. Allow yourself to have joy even in your darkest hours. And love as much as you can, even if it appears that love eludes you because love is the best cure of all.
  6. If you are part of a community of psychics, healers and mystics don’t be afraid to ask for assistance, for help, encouragement and empowerment.
  7. Allow yourself to accept love from the right places: your friends, your pets, your colleagues and kind strangers who are paying it forward and not looking to use you.

The Diary of A Twin Flame – A Season in Hell

seasoninhell

Dear Diary,

I met my twin flame last spring and contrary to everything that I ever believed about the empowering invincibility of romantic love, that flame burns so bright and so true that it burned a path of destruction through my life that was more of a sacrificial funeral pyre instead of the hunk of burning love that I still long for.   Finding your true love after 30 is fraught with enough danger, but finding your flame after 50 demands that you unravel a lifetime of things that you have settled for in order to get what you want or in other words, you have to allow your life to “burn baby burn.”

Casualty number 1 was a soul mate relationship that had languished for 8 years as an engagement that thankfully was never made into a legal marriage.  Experiencing the rush of what love really was and should be had a galvanizing effect on me.  One morning I walked calmly into our living room and told my then fiancé that I was leaving him and he was so shocked that he spilled his coffee.  The year leading up to this declaration was colored by a year of foiled suicide attempts on his part as he repeatedly felt that he wasn’t “making it” as an actor here in the City of Angels.  Hence, what had been a Heaven for the first five years had become what I will always recall as a “Season in Hell.”

You see, he never planned on really go through with his suicide. In hindsight I realize that this was his way of controlling me through my love for him.  As my best girlfriends told me in a litany of reasons why I needed to leave him anyway, threats of suicide in order to get attention is really emotional abuse. And I put up with that and much more because I believed that I had to “settle” for security. Meeting my twin flame changed all that. Even though we are in two different states and our relationship is complicated to the extent that I can’t reveal much more than our three sentence mantra but it grounds where we are at right now, which is honest.

  1. We love each other.
  2. We are trying to make it work.
  3. We are STUPID.

In readings meeting my twin flame has given me compassion and a unique understanding of what other TWINS are going through.

#astrologyhack – How I Cope with Black Moon Lilith and Processing Abuse

13509068_10154338751369791_7684489776203800657_nIn an uncontested surrender to a powerful Grand Water Trine in the skies as I type, I have decided to spend the most difficult hours in bed writing, doing psychic tarot readings and eating as much chocolate in between sips off black coffee brewed to make my eyes roll back inside my head. The Sun (4 Cancer), the Moon (4 Pisces) and Black Moon Lilith / the Mean Apogee (3 Scorpio). This Grand Trine boosts the flow of energy and feeds the natural intensity of each astrological body involved pushing buttons in my conscious, subconscious and a newly risen dark side that has emerged from the crypt of denial and flown on bat wings into the night.

Black Moon Lilith figures prominently in my decision making today. I have decided to forego a popular pirate event in my area in order to avoid a onetime friend who “felt me up” on a moving day because he felt that since I was a single woman again, that he was entitled to be next in line in my bed since we had been friends for years. After my rejection and repeated insistence that he “keep his hands off me” I dismissed him.  He then drove a friend, who he had known for just an hour, home and tried the same thing with her although since she is a very young looking 60 year old woman. I’m sure that his experience with her was very, very different.  She had no problem telling him to stop and he left without an apology,  just a severe “white privileged” sense of entitlement because he’s one of those Caucasian men that thinks that his fetish for women of color makes him liberal instead of just a disrespectful fetishist. Ultimately, he cautioned me that even if I told anyone about the incidents that no one would believe me or her since we lacked “credibility.” She and I are both psychics and women of color. So, I am assuming that he is confident that psychics who aren’t white have low enough credibility to suffer molestation from white men who still live at home with their parents.

When doing psychic or tarot readings for women of color I understand that we have an entirely different list of problems that our Caucasian sisters struggle through. We have stereotypes to overcome. Some men are attracted to us because they believe that we will take less and give more because of our position in society. Either that or they hope that we will be more willing to accept their abuse for a variety of reasons, first of all the status of being with a “white man.”  My advice to all my clients who are survivors of abuse is to remember that any abuse is not their fault. As soon as they are able to reclaim their sovereignty over their own bodies and deprogram themselves from the popular sublimated belief that pretty women should be punished for the advantage of beauty … then they can rebuild their lives on a foundation of strength and self esteem.

Bottom line: Sometimes there are things that your psychic will tell you simply and with gusto that your therapist won’t.

Pop Tarot – Sansa Stark is a Queen of Swords

Sansa_Wolf_Dress_Season_6
Sophie Turner – Sansa – Game of Thrones Season 6

For many viewers of HBO’s medieval powerhouse Game of Thrones  Sansa Stark has been a victim for many seasons.  When we first saw her lose her beloved dire wolf,  Lady, after Arya’s rebellion against Joffrey in season 1; I knew intuitively that they were going to tear this girl apart limb from limb and I dreaded seeing yet another human sacrifice. As one who despised Vanessa’s sacrifice in order to “go to God” in the finale of Showtime’s Penny Dreadful; I watched the latest Game of Thrones episode where thankfully Sansa came into her own,  with a mixture of dread and triumph although they may kill Sansa  yet. She has grown very nicely into the Red Wolf. In the days following the broadcast I have come to identify with Sansa more and more because frankly we’ve been down the same road.  I too have been orphaned, abused and twisted the subtle ways that life and pain can twist you in order to give you the sinister coping skills to survive. Nevertheless,  I assure you my enemies often refer to me as a gorgeous monster.

For many in the blogosphere Sansa embodied the classic Princess Archetype at the beginning of the show. But season after season, through Joffrey, Little Finger, Tyrion and finally Ramsay; we’ve seen her be  humiliated, lied to, used and abused to the extent that no Princess should ever have to suffer.  And yet through it all she has survived and become for me what I interpret intuitively as the archetype for the tarot card the Queen of Swords.

In most interpretations of the court card the Queen of Swords represents the mature intellect devoid of emotion.  Surely, Sansa embodies this now. She is not above fooling her half-brother Jon Snow for his own good.  And we can almost stand sinfully in her skin as she releases the hounds to eat her loathsome ex, Ramsey Bolton. Both moves were brilliant and perfectly timed. Years of abuse have taught her how to separate thought, feeling and emotion in order for her to survive to womanhood.  And she has become a bit of a monster in her own right albeit a beautiful one at that.  One has to wonder what Cersei suffered as a girl to become as twisted as she is today. And we know that Dani, the other queenly survivor, was literally a slave until she was married and then painfully widowed.  And yet all three woman have power in this violently misogynistic world, but only because they were born into nobility. A common peasant girl would never have survived such treatment and many of the whores in this world die young. We’ve seen them drop like flies.

The Queen of Swords  in many readings refers to a woman who has survived such trials32f2c16ac287ddda9ef59d4e0d1ea352 and tribulations and come out not only whole, but a heroine in the most difficult situations. Traditionally the Queen of Swords is a widow, but in most cases she is a woman who survived the loss of her family, a loved one or perhaps even her soul mate. Australian born singer Sia comes to mind. It is hard to imagine that the resplendent angel of oddity singing underneath the stars at Coachella this year had ever lost the love of her life. But there she was serenading a packed audience underneath the desert sky literally transforming them with sound. In some cases the Queen of Swords is a veteran of drug addiction who constantly battles her inner demons with such intent that her own knowledge of self is as sharp as a sword tip. There are those women who have risen to the heights of their careers at a young age because they are driven to succeed in order to escape the horrors of the powerlessness of incest and sexual molestation.  And those women,  who for whatever reason have survived enough failed relationships to reach the other side of menopause with more than enough gumption to abandon the notions of being wives have become advocates, PHDs, best-selling authors and crazy cat ladies with the secrets of magick hidden in the creases of their smiles.

These are the Queens of Swords that I know and love oh so well.  Behind the closed door of my reading room we glimpse into the vaults of the Akashic records or spy on converging time lines intent on figuring out ways to conquer in business and in the bedroom.  So, I assure you that there are times when we take delight in sharpening our swords against a cruel world because we’ve grown accustomed to winning against the odds. Say what you will about this particular Queen. Victory is hers.
