Book Review: Air Magic by Astrea Taylor

No Comments
Air Magic by Astrea Taylor, part of the Elements of Witchcraft series. Released, April 2021 by Llewellyn Books.

I was instantly drawn to this book, Air Magic by Astrea Taylor, when I learned about it, because Air Magic is something so unusual to me. In my own craft practice I work Earth, Water, and Fire Magic often. But beyond incense and feathers, Air Magic was an enigma. This book clarified so much.

So when I saw that Taylor had authored the book, I was happy to dive right in, getting a special autographed release of it as well. I had already read her previous work, “Intuitive Witchcraft” which was such a great guide to what many of us in the Craft are truly practicing and a book I regularly recommend to my fellow pagans. Air Magic arrived with a sweet note, book mark and Air Magic stickers. It was an added bonus that really helped put me in the mood to learn all about Air Magic. And learn I did. Like did you realize that birthday candles on a cake are Air Magic. Of course, duh! But I never thought of it in regards to Air Magic. Fire, Earth, yes. But, it is also Air, as detailed in this book. And when you think about, it, yes. That fire cannot mold the ingredients into cake or light the candles without its fuel: Air. Make a wish, Witch.

Special bonus reminders of Air Magic accompanied the special autographed edition of this book during its inaugural release.

Air Magic is the second book in a series of the Elements of Witchcraft. It not only digs deep all that encompasses Air Magic, but even gives you meditations, rituals, and spells to begin your understanding of Air Magic and incorporating it into your personal practice. It also featured one of my other favorite Witches, Laura Tempest Zakroff. Taylor takes us through not only the history and mythos of Air Magic but also where Air Magic is aligned with animals, crystals, deities, and more. I was thrilled to learn that one of the trees on my property is aligned with Air Magic specifically with the Norse traditions. It will now become the place of my Freyja altar.

But the practical parts of how the reader can use Air Magic in their own practice is the most dynamic part of the book, so earns a top shelf placement in my bookshelf. I appreciate that some of the practical information, the how-to if you will, leans on the simple. Simple, everyday Magic is something that even novice Witches can begin to put into their lives. But there is more in depth rituals as well for those who feel best doing something more formal and detailed. I especially like the Air Magic for travel. And as I deepen my connection to Air Magic, I’ll be using the meditation she outlined in order to get in touch with the element of air.

Before reading this book, Air Magic felt so foreign. Taylor’s Air Magic lifts away the caul of Air Magic and spotlights its interwovenness in our every day lives and easy ways to incorporate it. Packed with deep references, you could easily grab tome after tome from the book’s bibliography and go down an Air Magic rabbit hole if you like. This Scorpio appreciates anything well researched. This book also revealed places where the Air element was way more active in my own practice. Praying Mantis familiar, anyone?

This book is a great blessing to learn about Air Magic.

Lastly, the fact that the word Magic is used in its typical sense – minus the K – in this book also spoke to me. If you’ve been here a bit, you know my feelings on Magic with a K.

Even as a Crone, practicing the Craft is all about learning. Books are the best way to get there, in my opinion. Air Magic is certainly a cornerstone to unravel the mysteries of Air Magic and presented in a clear, practical, and engaging way. If you find yourself drawn to Air Magic you need to add this book to your Witch Library. I’m glad I did.

Anniversary Giveaway!

To say thanks for all the support over the past year, we’re giving away three big prizes. See below for details.

Wow, what a year it’s been. So many changes for so many of us. Certainly true for this Crone Witch. Biggest of all was my entry into public Witch life and opening up my RT Magical Services & Goods shop, that allowed me to combine those critical Cs I crave in my life: Creator, Curator, and Connector. And for a whole year I’ve been working at it, being a shoot-from-the-hip entrepreneur (and learning to spell entrepreneur…LOL).

As I type this, another dream interpretation order came in. Woohoo! Keeping busy means I’m doing my part for my family and home, which makes my Cancer Moon sing. Being a Boss Witch makes my Leo Rising satisfied and keeps its “good ideas” down to a sustainable amount, so my Scorpio Sun can keep doing the shadow work I have put off until my Crone Crowning.

I love doing this work. It combines all my great loves. Something I’ve been working towards for a very long time in my life. And I’m so grateful. I love having my work’s focus all about Magic, whether it’s my Magical Services & Goods or working our Permaculture efforts here at Villa Westwyk, or Writing my secret project, I’m feeling so blessed. So it’s time to give back. Welcome to the First Anniversary Giveaway.

The First Anniversary Giveaway will offer many chances to enter as detailed below. Grand prize is a “year ahead” Full Elder Futhark Rune Casting, a divination reading that looks at your year ahead. This is a $55 value currently. Second prize is a 3-Rune Reading. This is a divination about one question you’re having. Currently a $20 value. 3rd prize is a Dream Interpretation. Currently a $15.55 value. Be advised that all of these items are currently on sale for the anniversary offerings. Prices will rise to regular prices post anniversary sale (July 22).

Here’s the Anniversary Giveaway rules:

  1. Follow me on Instagram and get one entry. If you are already a follower, comment by tagging someone with whom you’d love to introduce me.
  2. Tag one person you think might enjoy one of these prizes while sharing the original post on your Instagram Story and get one entry.
  3. Comment with one thing you know about me and my work here or on the Giveaway Announcement Instagram Post (July 2) of the same get one entry (two entries if you answer both here on the website or the Giveaway Announcement post on Instagram, July 2).
  4. Bonus Three Entries: Leave a comment here to tell me how you came to my little cottage on the internet.
  5. The Winner(s) will be announced live on my IG Live, Wednesday, July 14, 10:30 a.m. so don’t delay in getting your entries in.
  6. Three prizes will be given. Only one person per prize.
  7. All prizes are digital so the Giveaway is open to all!

Again, the Giveaway runs until July 14. How many entries have you gotten in so far?

Thank you again for supporting my work as a Witch, as a Writer, as a Healer of the Earth. When you support me, you support your own Magical life. What a beautiful partnership that is, yes? Here’s to many more anniversaries!

Blessed Be,

Book Review: The Witches Almanac – An Anthology of Half a Century of Collected Magical Lore

No Comments
A curious addition to any Witch Library.

The 50 Year Anniversary Edition of The Witches Almanac – An Anthology of Half of Century of Collected Magical Lore by Andrew Theitic and published in July 2020 by Wtiches’ Almanac, Ltd. is a collection of a “best of” from the editions of this almanac since 1971. There is articles on everything from making charms, fire gazing, the evil eye, the legend of so many of the stories that include witches, crystals, herbalism, deities, honestly, you named it. It even includes some old advertisements aimed at the pagan community.

I would not classify this as a reference book, but there are some very interesting reference materials within it, making it a read that will likely allow any Witch of any level to learn something.

I think this is a book I might keep at the tub side, the coffee table, or near anywhere you might need to just sit and just read whenever. It’s not a book to read cover to cover, although I did to produce this review. Whatever type of Witch or pantheon you follow, you’ll likely learn something reading it. There are also interviews and articles about the folks that have been behind the Almanac for so long, some of them in memoriam. It also might be an interesting book for which to do some bibliomancy/stichomancy divination.

The book includes some interesting illustrations, especially where some of the vintage advertisements are concerned, creating another point of interest as you peruse the book.

One of the vintage ads found in this 50th Anniversary Witches’ Almanac.

It doesn’t just include things from the past, there are many issues covered in the book that are in the conscious collective now like Climate Change and Transgender Rights.

If you are interested in the stories, beliefs, and practices that have been written about for the last 50 years. Everything from the Eye of Horus, the Queen of Shades, or all about The Old Apple Tree, you will find interest in this book. It’s definitely a curiosity as opposed to a well-indexed reference guide. But, I’m sure each and every Witch out there will find something new to learn in that.

Happy 1st Birthday to My Boss Witch Life

Happy Birthday & Farewell Magical Flea Market. Hello Runa Troy Magical Services & Goods.

This month marks one year that I hung my Boss Witch shingle out. I have had such a journey this last year, growing my little cottage business on the heels of a complete script-flip of my life. It’s been such an honor to do Rune Castings and Dream Interpretations, and provide mystical goods for so many incredible people. 

For its first birthday, I’m doing a little renovation of the shop. I’ve painted over the Magical Flea Market sign and will simply be known as: Runa Troy: Magical Services & Goods. This is how most in our “BWitch” community know me, so makes much more sense. I will still be providing all the services I have been. Plus if plans go as designed, there will be new services forthcoming.

As an Intuitive Witch with Norse Pantheon Leanings, I’ve given a special name to my personal Craft.

This past year has been deep foundational work to grow the available inventory of mystical items at my disposal, so there will be new Witchy Goods coming soon to my shop. My herb garden’s harvests and other items I deem MIDGARDening Witchery is ready to be sent out into the world. So stay tuned, please.

Lastly, anything with the Magical Flea Market label soon will be listed in the shop soon at a deep discount. My rebranding is your gain. Be sure to favorite my Etsy shop so you’re notified when everything goes live. As well, I’m in the beginning stages of an anniversary giveaway, so keep your eyes peeled here and on Instagram for that announcement.

Thank you again for the support you give for a magical life, both mine and yours. May the next year bring us even more blessings. So it is.

Blessed Be,

Runa Troy, Creator, Curator, and Connector

Pick-A-Rune 6-23-2021

Pick-A-Rune! Smoky Quartz, Chrysoprase, or Kyanite.

Thank you all for sticking with me through a week that’s been a bit rough on so many of us. I am trying hard to keep up and do what I can to make this world better. And right not that includes taking deeper care of myself than what I’ve been doing for too many years. And I’m doing that, which means things here have been falling behind. I know full well as a Crone that you need to take care of your own oxygen mask before you put it on others. But, at the same time, you need to figure out if you can land safely. I love having this work. I am really enjoying doing these Special Summer Solstice Readings, and the Dream Interpretations you all are keeping me busy with each and every day. I am so blessed. I am so embracing this path, which is centered on a growing/healing purpose and expanding community. But I’m so grateful that I can work at a pace that is sustainable, and still take care of myself. Hopefully you can see the picture I’m perhaps poorly painting for you (hey, I’m folks-artsy af some days). Regardless, please know I’m doing that shadow work. This level of shadow work seems to be some very traumatic, mind-changing, deep, deep shadow work. Whee. Thanks Universe. This means I have a dragon load of appointments to take care of myself and my immediate environment, which feed into each other. So sporadic output from this Crone Witch. However, until I can come back to blogging and Instagram Lives, or putting in new items in the Etsy shop, I am happy to offer this Pick-A-Rune. So which do you choose?

Look at the photo, which position, or which stone calls out to you? Feel free to use all three, I feel like some of you need ALL of this advice, and yes, I know this very well may be for me, too.
Smoky Quartz is Naudhiz (Need); Chrysoprase is Fehu (Wealth); Kyanite is Dagaz (Dawn).
Smoky Quartz can help you with those hip ailments; Chrysoprase is a friend to help with self esteem; and Kyanite for Crown Chakra Work.

Smoky Quartz & Naudhiz:

Naudhiz is in Heimdall’s Aett, the Warrior’s Aett, the Aett that deals with Victory, Power, and Success.

Oh, baby, the needs you need. Are you feeling it? Are you longing? Are you just wanting deliverance from this distress? But you have the power to get exactly what you want, but you just may need to decide how you’re going to do it first, because, hey, you lucky Bwitch, you got options! Lots of options. That’s what happens when you are powerful and people look to you as a leader. Boss Baby. Which one do you want? The easy one that might piss someone else off? The balanced that’s super hard? Or maybe the hard one that makes it easy in the long run? This Rune. This Rune is putting out so much “take care of your shit” energy that I feel like I need to call for suppressive fire. Regardless of your choice, you will survive. Realize that you may have to pause before moving forward – whatever your choice – and discern want vs. need. Is it really a need? Oh, and look for that aftershock for what you think you need? If you get it, will it hurt someone around you? Recheck and then check again. Okay, now you can move forward.

Chrysoprase & Fehu:

Fehu is in Freyja’s Aett, the Growth Aett. It is all about love, happiness, and pleasure. All the Good Things Aett.

There is a new beginning for you approaching. Get ready to receive. Yep, you have to be ready to be swimming in everything you want and need. Abundance that just fuels your gratitude and your give-back. Oh, but things are shit right now, you say? You are a strong one. The Runes know it. The Energies know it. Source and Spirit know it. Freyja knows it. But do you know it? You have all the capability, resources, and support you need to move forward. If they aren’t there, how can you open the trap door to have it flood down upon you? I see some of you need to physically change your life: move houses, your body, your job. And since Fehu meant the wealth that cattle brought to the historical people, our ancestors, that birthed this language and message-giving alphabet, the Elder Futhark, the horns of these bovine beasts appear before me. This is a stern All-Father warning to make sure that you are protected when you receive this windfall. Don’t brag. Be humble. Be kind. Oh, and don’t fall back into negative patterns from which you’ve already broken free. Keep. Moving. Forward. There is delicious living in your future. Don’t. Fall. Down. You got this, Bwitch.

Kyanite & Dagaz:

Dagaz is in Tyr’s Aett, The Justice Aett; It is all about fairness, balance, and doing the right thing.

Are you feeling like you just woke up to your life and you’re completely baffled? Yeah, it happens. You’re taking all these baby steps to live your truest self and best life, and BAM! things are so much different and you’re blinking at it like a robot on the fritz. Did you forget to be careful what you asked for? Or did you just not believe you could manifest this goodness? Stop with that baneful magic of self-doubt and embrace your power. Look at each day as the gift it is and tackle every blessing and lesson. Because the Bwitch you were yesterday is not the one you will be tomorrow. And that tomorrow being? They are badass. You know that next level is a breakthrough one for you? You’re not confident you can do it? Too bad, you can. You will. There is an utter certainty to this growth. You just need to decide if you’re going to uncover this better self. Whether your path forward is easy, medium, or hard, is really up to you. Work is involved, regardless. Dagaz wants you to work smarter not harder. And that means you may have to call in the coven and have a little work party. You know you got those Bwitches backs as well if they need your support.

Thank you!

I hope these readings resonated with you. These are intended to find you when you need them, not just on the day they are revealed. Again, if they all spoke to you, they all spoke to you. But I bet one of them touched a cord stronger than the others.

Healing is hard. Being human is hard. Working is hard. But you have the power to flourish. Open your soul to more and it will arrive. Fear is just another barrier to our truest selves and best life. Hop that hurdle and fly, Bwitch.

I wish you freedom and peace,

Blessed Be,

Runa Troy

Touching Lives One Animal At A Time

2 Comments
Saweetie.

The call of nature to those who follow the path of The Craft is strong. You may find yourself surrounded by orphaned animals, or unusual sightings of uncommon creatures. Your home may host plants that can survive no where else. It’s because these children of Gaia know that you are a healer. Witches heal the earth and the earth heals us. But sometimes we need a little help.

Recently we had this 16-year-old Australian Shepherd wander onto our property. Now, we live in a very rural area. Farmhouse after farmhouse. Farm dogs wander, but they always go home. So when they wander onto our property, we normally greet them without objection. However, it doesn’t take long for our own two dogs to exclaim annoyance with the interloper and loudly. To keep the peace, we calmly tell our farm dog visitors to go home. And they depart with no fuss.

Saweetie, as we would come to call her, kept coming back. Repeatedly. Our two dogs, Granny Shadow and Ms. SnickleFritz, were not happy with the visitor, who was calm and clearly unbothered by our smaller dogs. When she came back the third time, I noticed she was walking kind of crooked. She wasn’t aggressive or even crying. Just not looking like a dog should, even a senior one.

My Viking, aka The Dog Whisperer. He’s not pleased with the state of this dog’s health.

When she came back the third time, I called the Viking from his shop and asked for assistance. Anyone who knows my spouse knows he’s a big animal lover and very much a dog whisperer. He has mused often that he would be happy to be reincarnated as one of our dogs. What a great life they lead! Without hesitation he leaped Into action regarding Saweetie. She easily came to him and we leashed her and tried to assess if there was a collar or tags or what not. She was not in good shape. Her hair was matted badly. She was in need of a bath. Her nails hadn’t been taken care of in a long time. When we tried to give her water, we began to suspect that she couldn’t hear or see very well. And then there was the matter of looking like she might be injured because of the crooked way she was walking, which was very slowly, and her constant panting, which can indicate stress in a dog.

The only tag she had was a rabies vaccination tag. So The Viking called our local Humane Society. It was the weekend and we were thinking it might be not until Monday until our message was answered. We began to create plans to house Saweetie until we could get her help. Before we could even set up a dog house, the Whatcom County Humane Society called us back. They had received another call reporting Saweetie missing. Not too far from our home as well. She was a farm dog, like we suspected. They offered for us to take the animal back to the owners, or have the owners come to us, or they would dispatch an officer who would come out and retrieve the dog and take the animal back to its human.

We chose the third option because we felt that once the animal control officer saw the animal, some counseling to its owner would be more well received from them rather than The Viking and Some Crone Witch lecturing said alleged neglectful owners. We also had no idea if the people who have had this animal for 16+ years were some how unable to care for her appropriately. Whatever the case, if more was needed for Saweetie or her humans, the Humane Society said they would help. That sounded good to us. Within the next hour, the animal officer arrived at Villa Westwyk.

The officer arrived quickly and observed all the factors about Saweetie’s situation that we did. Such a good dog in not a great state. Next up was to return her to her licensed owners and provide some feedback to help Saweetie live out her life in a bit more comfort. This isn’t the first time we have rescued an animal and how the officer handled Saweetie showed what a good natured animal she really was. She even got to ride up in the cab with the officer because she wasn’t taking her far (less than a mile) and the dog was too injured to get into the kennels in the back. Saweetie went home and was reunited with a grateful family, which learned some valuable lessons about the needs of their lovely pet.

Saweetie got to ride in the cab because she was so old, feeble, and just an true testament to the name we gave her.

I share this story with all of you so that if you are in a situation where you want to help animals but can’t be a full-time care giver to one, then supporting an agency like your local humane society — and wow! is ours a great one — is definitely a path to helping animals on the daily. Along with our local Habitat for Humanity’s program of Homes for Hives, we will be supporting this local agency in as many ways as we can. Not just because of the good work they did this weekend at Villa Westwyk, but all over counties everywhere.

If you’ve had an interesting animal encounter lately, let me know in the comments. How did it align with your path of The Craft?

Pick A Rune – 6/11/2021

No Comments
Today’s choices feature Iolite (left), Labradorite(center), and Rose Quartz (right). I am casting with my buffalo teeth Runes.

If you are new here, Welcome. This is a special gift to my followers that I do to help you understand my Rune Magic, learn about Crystals, and, most importantly, the messages of the Runes. Look at the photo either above, or the closer up shot below, and feel the energy. Which one calls to you? Close your eyes. Then open them. Where do your eyes land first? Choose that one. Let the Universe know which one you choose by commenting here (Right, Center, or Left). If you already commented over on Instagram, go below for the reveal. Remember, these readings find you when you need to hear it. If you miss this one, I’ll be doing another soon and that one just may find you.

Pick a Rune: Left, Center, or Right? Comment below with your choice and then see the reveal of the Rune Casting and the reading for your choice.

Just a quick reminder before the reveal below, I have a Special Summer Solstice Reading available that includes 8 Runes and Oracle cards around a Solar Wheel Mirror. Offerings are given just for you. There are only 9 of these available right as of this posting. You can find them in my Magical Flea Market Etsy Shop. See what this Summer has in store for you with this special seasonal reading.

Iolite is a rare stone used in healing to facilitate inner journeying. Any realizations that come from such inner journeying can have profound effects on your life.

Hagalaz is the Rune with messages for you today. Ooh, baby! This transformation has been a rough one, but you are the most boldest and beautiful butterfly now. You’ve emerged from the goo of the cocoon and finally are taking deep breaths in your new power. Those hardships have made you not only a new you, but a more confident and radiant you. Don’t be surprised if you’re attracting not only new and positive attention, but a few wasps. Don’t share your milkweed with them. Find locations in the sun without them.

Labradorite belongs to a group of minerals called feldspars that are commonly found in the earth’s crust. In healing, this stone is considered to hold powerful Magic. It helps awaken supersensory abilities and the awareness of other states of energies.

Ingwaz is our Rune casted for the center choice. The Earth is calling for you to help it. How are you helping it? Are you taking control of how your home and family help the Earth rest and find relief? Where could you improve? Ingwaz wants you to know that it’s less work to help heal the Earth than to let her toil under stress. You will find new growth and a lessening of anxiety when you focus on this path. If you are wanting to increase your family, now is the time to take action on that.

Rose Quartz is a crystal you should have first and foremost. So versatile. So powerful. Used to open the heart chakra and bring more love in our lives, it can also help soothe anxiety and bring about more restful sleep.

Tiwaz has a message for you: stop sacrificing for those who don’t hold you in high regard. Giving until it hurts is not working for you here. Continuing to do this will only bring more negativity and potentially lead to a volatile situation where only more misery is harvested. Stop. Reassess. Protect your energy. And put that sacrifice back into serving your health, business, and/or relationships. It’s not necessary to be unkind when you stop giving your resources to people and areas of your life that aren’t giving you a return. Just stop. Set boundaries. Move on.

Thank you for allowing me to read for you. Hope your Eclipse Season brings you the clarity and peace you seek. Don’t forget to cleanse and align.

Blessed Be,

~Runa

Special Solstice Reading Available

No Comments

Only available for the month of June until booked up! Schedule today!

Inspiration hit while soaking in the sun. Time to offer a special Intuitive Reading.

For the month of June — although just 13 slots available — I have a special Solstice Reading. Around the sun we go to reflect on where we are, what brought us here, what’s our best path forward, who might help or get in the way, what will help us be our truest selves and live our best life. We are in the middle of the calendar year with a Solar Eclipse this month. Lots of strong energy for me to divine and download messages for you. You will receive a typed up reading with photos of your spread of the Runes and Oracle Cards.

You can book through my Etsy shop (The Magical Flea Market). If you’re not on Etsy, you may always email me and book through a Paypal transaction. Whatever you preference, I urge you to book today.

The Summer Solstice is a time of reflection. What has the year brought you? Where have you been? Where are you going? This special Rune & Oracle Card Reading with Octagonal Perspective will help guide you into your truest self and best life. I look at your personal timeline (what’s happening now, what brought you here, possible paths forward), the people around you, the community around you, and your best path forward. This listing will expire at the end of June. Given that we have a Solar Eclipse on June 10 as well as the Solstice this month, the energy is high for looking deeper and receiving a reading.

You will receive a written and photographic record of my reading showing all the runes around the sun and their corresponding oracle cards. Most reading will be returned within 24 HOURS of scheduling (availability limited). When the schedule is sold out, this listing will be removed from The Magical Flea Market listings. So don’t delay. The Runes and Cards are waiting for you, as am I.

I am so excited to offer this special reading and work with you this month!

Pick-A-Rune 5-28-2021

Pick A Rune is a weekly feature for a quick divination to set you right for your week.

Thanks for visiting! Sorry for the delay for those who look forward to this each week. I’ve been in slow-motion since the Lunar Eclipse. You may be feeling like you’re running in quick-sand, too. No worries, energy levels should pick up for both of us beginning now. So let’s get to it:

Today we are featuring Tiger’s Eye Runes. The set that started me on the path of Runic Magic and Divination.

If you’re new here, welcome! Look at the above photo and chose either left, center, or right. That’s Citrine, Bloodstone, or Sodalite. What calls to you? Which one whispers your name? You will find these messages when you need them. May this be correct and true. See below for the reveal and your reading.

Your message revealed.

Given the Cosmic Weather the fact that we have Raidho; Sowilo, and Jera show up, is not surprising. Lots of Air energy here.

Citrine combined with this Rune is a sure message to cleanse and re-set.

If you chose left (Citrine) the Runic message comes from Raidho. If you have been feeling like things are not in the right order, you may need to arrange your life, energy, and actions towards getting in line with the cosmic order for your specific purpose. Don’t know what that is? Take a day trip — nothing fancy, and be out in nature for a few hours. Sit next to running water and listen. What you need to do will come to you and it will set you on your path. The trees, water, rocks, they all speak. You need to be still enough to listen.

Bloodstone is used to heal the ancestral line and cleanse the lower chakras.

If you chose center (Bloodstone), the sun is calling you. Sowilo, S, for the Elder Futhark is the archetypal sun and wants you to pay attention to the solar wheel of the year. You are being called to connect to a your psychic center. When was the last time you allowed your intuition to guide you? Set aside a day and just listen to that voice. Let everything else slide away and let Spirit and your Ancestors guide you. Where are you in the solar year? Your solar year? Focus there. Give it a whole day to just shine down on you and lift you up.

Sodalite helps cleanse the throat chakra. Gratitude practices are helped by this stone, too.

If you chose right (Sodalite), Jera’s message is that you have a reward coming to you, because you moved forward on your path in a natural manner, despite your critics. You honored the work of your ancestors that allowed you to have a better life. Freyr wants you to also remember that this harvest (reward) is best received in gratitude. Be alert for signs of when it’s coming by an Eagle crossing your path.

Thank you for allowing me to read for you. Hope your Eclipse Season brings you the clarity and peace you sees. Don’t forget to cleanse and align.

Blessed Be,

~Runa
