In this post, I’ve going to share with you some incredible, unique, beautiful and affordable offerings from around the web and throughout the globe. I know it’s still pretty early, but the holidays do tend to sneak up on us every year. And now that Halloween is officially wrapped, it’s time to start shifting gears.

I want to waste no time, so let’s get to it. Some of the features in this list are very specific products, some are links to full stores or an artist’s larger body of work, but all are pure magick. Please enjoy the selection below which focuses specifically on small business as opposed to big box - hopefully it will inspire you for the upcoming holiday season!

Charting Our Dreams

A few weeks ago I posted a dream-states survey and invited those who wished to partake to share their experiences. I received quite a number back and would like to start this by offering a heart felt thank you. Not only was I in awe of the feedback, but I felt a great sense of comfort knowing that this world I escape to each night is not mine alone.

With all that being said, I spent a great deal of time pouring over the participant's birth charts because I wanted to see if there were a few areas in particular where I could draw commonalities. Astrology is complex, and I am not an expert by a long stretch - but it was fascinating none the less. Unfortunately, based on the sample size I viewed, I couldn't conclude any obvious parallels, but I would like to explain what it was I was looking for. Before I do that, let me share with you some of the fascinating experiences some of our dreamers put forth. I've just included one or two quotes for each topic and I've added my own input as well.

Connecting with the Solar Eclipse In Leo

Tomorrow is the much anticipated Solar Eclipse in Leo and depending where you are in this world, you may experience total-partial darkness for a brief period of time.

Solar eclipses are relatively rare and when they show up, it's a good time for us to take a peek at what's lurking in our shadows and what is attempting to find its way to light. It's also an opportunity to allow for some serious transformation to take place and depending where this eclipse is landing for you in your chart, it could mean a focus on different things.

To figure out where the eclipse is showing up for you, you need to locate what house Leo lands on in your natal chart. You can run a chart over at Cafe Astrology, which is an excellent resource that I use frequently since I'm definitely no Astrology expert. Once you've run your chart, scroll down to the bottom and find what house Leo falls in for you. There are 12 houses total and I've included a list below so you can reference what each of them means. Please note that I've included the natural sign that occupies each house to provide more context to that house, but your natal chart will show you specifically where the signs are landing for you.

Sun, Moon, Rising...and Tarot

Let me start this post by making a bit of a disclaimer: I am not, in any way, an expert in Astrology. I know more than the basics, enough to get by and infuse an element here or there into my readings. We're talking more than the average person who kinda-sorta understands their sun sign, but I am no match for those who have spent years studying this complex and fascinating field. So now that that's out of the way, I want to tell you a little story about an epiphany I recently had regarding my own chart. Before that though, I'll explain a little about what this post will discuss, which are the three core signs; Sun, Moon, and Rising.

Let's start with the Sun Sign. This is the aspect of our chart that we tend to talk about the most. It's probably how we mostly identify and the thing looked at when consulting a daily horoscope and for many, it starts and stops there. But, we know better, and Astrology is much more complicated than the Sun sign. So, let's now introduce the Moon sign. This is the sign that was present in the Moon at the time and date of our birth. It's associated with our inner selves, our emotional lives and reactions and how we process and filter our feelings. And finally, if discussing the core three, we also have our Rising sign. This is the sign that was on the horizon during our date and time of birth, also known as the ascendant sign. It is believed that the Rising Sign is how we project and reflect to the world. While the Sun sign is what you know to be true about yourself, and how you may experience yourself overall, the Rising Sign is often how you appear to others and the outside world.
