Inspiring Enchantment & Illumination with Tarot & Intuitive Guidance

“Drink deep of the immortal Wine,
It gives the laughter to the Strife,
Drink deep, and throu’ the Shadow and Shine
Rejoice in the Green Fire of Life.”

The Global Climate Crisis

If you are one of the folks who get ticked off when I don’t stick to “spiritual” topics, and I “get political,” you’ll be more comfortable skipping this today.

But comfort is not always helpful or wise.

As I have said many times, my core beliefs are best articulated by the Reclaiming Tradition’s Principles of Unity, part of which state, “Our practice arises from a deep, spiritual commitment to the Earth, to healing and to the linking of magic with political action.”

No apologies.

“Global warming” is a tepid understatement that has found its way into the mainstream, thanks to the people who would prefer to brush it off and change the subject.

But make no mistake.

I am with Greta Thunberg, and millions of other young people and scientists who know the power of precision in naming things.

This is a CRISIS.

These are facts: Countless human lives are being lost, the waters are rising, storms have intensified, the air and water are being poisoned, the bird population in North America is crashing, crops are fizzling, and the crisis is now.

So, although my health has, at the last moment, prevented me from marching today, I urge you to join me, and hundreds of thousands of others around the world in today’s Global Climate Crisis strike.

I will not be answering emails or the phone, after I post this I will be offline, and I will be in communion with the Divine Ones, as well as the  Guardians, Cousins, and Allies who dwell here at Laurel Hill and who are interconnected in the biosphere that is our Grandmother Gaia.

Business as usual spells death.

I am praying and practicing on behalf of Life.

What about you?
