So your magic isn't working, and you can't figure out why. Your intentions are fully set and you're putting them way out there, but it's not really that simple, is it? Magic, manifestation, spell, prayer, wish, whatever you want to call it, is basically the art of getting what you want by influencing the world around you, and it’s often made to look easy. But if that's the case, why does it fail so often?
Are you a fiery intuitive or an airy over-thinker? Do you have the weight of the earth on your steadfast shoulders or do your feelings flow like water? The diverse energy of the elements can be read in our astrological charts, helping us to recognise any imbalances that keep us from wholeness.
What if I told you that putting belief in something outside of yourself could cure your anxiety? You’d probably think I was trying to convert you to some sort of religion. But when you break it down, religion itself is just a symbol, and any symbol, if you believe in it, has the power to heal.
What do you deem a magical person to be? To me, it’s someone who brims with positive power, someone with luck, vitality and spirit in spades, a true individual who lets wonder guide them in this amusing game called life.

Today is Friday the 13th – cue bad luck, black cats and hockey masked murderers. I’ve already had my computer crash today and spent the entire morning reinstalling Windows *sigh* - though it’s not really surprising with the current Mercury Retrograde transit coupled with our fateful Friday 13th – it’s a double whammy of bad luck – deeelightful!
So it’s Mercury Retrograde again, that time of year when everything seemingly goes a bit mental, technology gives up and we all generally feel a bit frazzled, but instead of worrying and blaming that damn planet up there, maybe we could try something different this time?
It’s official, witches are back in. Can I hear a hallelujah? From television to music, fashion and even social media. The world’s gone mad with magical powers and I for one am hyped, but not just for the social acceptance and spooky vibes. There’s a deeper reason for my delight at this witchy revolt, and it involves us ladies.
