    Face it. You all went at least 5% witchy during the pandemic. Here’s a spot to post about your horoscope, Beyonce charging crystals in the full moon, how Kylie Jenner’s no-makeup photos prove that she’s casting black magic, rune stone readings, or the dope sage plant you have in your herb garden. Join the coven. Just for laughs.

    That said, this is your reminder that Mercury’s first retrograde begins today, so mind your step (and your mouth). :mrgreen:

    Ok this reminds me that it’s Sunday and also February tomorrow (what?!) so I need to do my week ahead and a monthly Tarot spread. I have been seriously slacking on the card draws. Might need to be an evening thing because mornings are a shit show now that I’m back at work lol and I’m not getting up earlier than my already too early 5:30am.

    P.S. maybe a planner for all these spreads would help...lol jk ilu :kiss:

    I need to get some tarot cards. I used to have a deck but got rid of them a long time ago. I want to know when life is going to stop sucking.

    I find tarot cards to be an interesting way to prompt myself to see situations differently. Like, what questions am I not asking myself? Why am I stuck on this issue? How do I want to interpret this card and what am I afraid it’s really trying to tell me?

    Would scheduling an appointment with a Medium in hopes of Ben coming through fall into this thread category? Because I did and it’s in a week and a half.

    Definitely falls into this thread. I’m so sorry you’re hurting. Tomorrow is a new moon, and a perfect time to set new intentions. I’d maybe light a candle for Ben and welcome your grief for — and warm memories of — him.

    My reading was awesome! Ben and my grandma came through right away. He let me know he’s ok and he’s still with us. She picked up on my being a sensitive/empath which isn’t the first time I’ve had someone tell me that. She told me a quick meditation to do to help me be able to connect with Ben. I’m not good at the visualization part so it’s going to take practice.
    There were a couple things that didn’t make sense but there were other things that would’ve been an incredibly lucky guess (like Ben had kidney disease and describing his favorite feather toy).

    @virgo would you be interested in some guided meditation apps or podcasts to help you practice? I’ve been trying to do ten minutes a day.

    @Honey yes! I found a guided meditation on Spotify but it’s kinda long.

    Day: https://wakingup.com/

    Night: https://www.relaxmelodies.com/

    The first one is subscription based, but they will give a free year to anyone who requests it, no questions asked. The second one is a white noise app for better nighttime sleeping. It has a few great meditations for falling asleep, including some on grief and emotional pain. There are more behind a paywall, but even with the free version, I’ve found maybe six or eight different nighttime meditations I like.

    I pay for Headspace but the free version has a lot of good stuff. And if you like it they’ll give you a good deal on the first year if you hold out. You can usually pick the length of the meditations so do what works for you.

    The pandemic made me buy cat tarot cards. You heard me, made me buy it...

    My sister did a phone pet psychic during lock down. She had to send pictures and the lady did a reading!

    E is already becoming a spooky little girl. She's incredibly interested in witches and ghosts. She's not even 3 yet.

    @Honey thank you for recommending the Sam Harris app. It’s the first time I feel like I’m learning how to meditate. I love that he says to acknowledge sounds because that’s something that was stressing me out in past meditation attempts. It’s really making a difference for me.
    For example, today the owners of the apartment building across the street started demo on a structure in the back yard because they’re going to build a small house for their spoiled kid. If this happened 2 weeks ago, I would’ve been full of anger and anxiety and stress. But I was able to meditate this morning and relax and realize there’s nothing I can do and it really won’t effect me anyways (construction noise remains to be seen but the jack hammer wasn’t that loud in my office). So thank you for helping me save my sanity! I use the Relax app at night. I like that I can customize the sounds.

    I’m so, so happy to hear that it’s helpful, @virgo. That actually seems like a huge help to your day to day mindfulness.

    It really is. Ryan thinks it will be a big help to my anxiety about noises, rain, wind, etc. and I agree.

    I was coming to tell you that Sbux has free headspace, but it sounds like you found something that works. That’s great!
