Establishing a Ritual of Daily, Weekly, and Monthly Self-Care

It is so important to take care of ourselves.

Good Witches Homestead

There’s something to be said about intentionally setting aside time in our hectic schedules to focus entirely on our lives, our bodies and our health (both mental, and physical).

But so often, this is easier typed than done.

I believe in our culture, there’s certain guilt about slowing down, even for a short time, especially when it’s for the sake of our own wellbeing. We’re fascinated by the hustle, by the busyness of it all, and drawn into that hamster wheel of constant productivity, for the sake of getting ahead.

But I can attest, alongside so many others, that establishing a ritual of daily, weekly, and monthly self-care, slowing down and tuning out (in order to really tune in), can greatly benefit whatever your life’s work is. Whatever that hustle is meant for.

I have struggled with establishing this routine—busyness being that back-of-the-mind itch that keeps me from slowing…

HOW TO MAKE GEM ELIXIRS OR CRYSTAL ESSENCES

Good Witches Homestead

Gem elixirs also called crystal essences or crystal waters, have been used by many throughout the ages. They are a convenient way to use the vibrational energies of the crystals for crystal healing, magick, and more. They are easy to make and can be stored for later use.

You can use one crystal, several, or even several different types to make a gem elixir. Using multiple types creates a synergy blend, which is useful for bringing together the vibrations of several stones as more than the sum of the parts, so to speak.

I recommend creating gem elixirs using what is called the indirect method, and I outline it below. This method is the safest for all crystal types because the elixir waters do not come in direct contact with the stones used. The direct method — where the stones are placed directly in the water — can be potentially…

Card of the Day – 8 of Swords – Friday, January 11, 2019

Tarot by Cecelia

Here it is again! The 8 of Swords is notorious for showing up more frequently than any other card here on the blog. However, this time around, how you handle it appears to be changing. Yesterday, I mentioned that the Sun would conjunct Pluto today and that personal transformation is imminent. Something has left you feeling powerless and trapped for far too long, and the urge to break free is likely overwhelming.

One of the things which I always say with this card is “The only thing that can stop you is you”. Truly, this transformation which is needed at this time is not as much about transforming your outer world as it is your headspace. Your mindset is particularly important now, and it is time to step out of the box in which you have been living. There exists solutions and answers to your problems, you merely need to…

New Moon in Scorpio | Moonthly Energy Report — Spirit de la Lune

Information to help guide you through this New Moon.

Good Witches Homestead

This New Moon in Scorpio is a very intense and emotional one. Many of us have been feeling the depths of this New Moon for several days now. Not only is it election time… but both the Moon and the Sun are in Scorpio right now. This means our inner world and outer world are both feeling that intensity and rawness that Scorpio can bring.

Venus is just now getting out of Scorpio, but you may still be feeling her, as Venus is still in her “Shadow Period.” Venus, the planet of love, has been retrograde in Scorpio the house of darkness and transformation since October, and won’t go direct until the 16th of November.

This will take a lot of pressure off of our relationships, as we are able to see things a bit clearer with the balancing help of Libra. Just as Venus goes direct, Mercury goes retrograde…
