Entering into the world of magic

2020 has been the rise of the witch.

Why? Because we are in the middle of a worldwide pandemic, overthrowing old and outdated systems, and going through a collective spiritual awakening. The astrology this year is MAJOR and what is happening in the world reflects that. It is absolutely a time for ‘out with the old, in with the new’.

The term ‘witch’ can mean a ton of things and surely everyone has their own definition. The key point is you embrace who you are. You acknowledge your skill set. You are open to learning and being wrong. You fight for those who are oppressed. Let me say that again: You fight for those who are oppressed. Hard stop. You recognize the true magic that exists in this Universe. You get to know both your light and dark side and learn to work with BOTH of them. It means you find your true power.

That, in my opinion, is some big shit poppin’.

Start your journey to yourself now. There are so many ways to enter and learn. For me, it started with astrology. Then crystals and tarot, planning rituals by the moon. Then came plants and learning about herbs. I feel like I can’t stop finding new things to learn and in turn I am learning more about myself. I am finding my place in the world and figuring out what I need to do in order to feel fulfilled. That is being a witch. That is existing in the world of magic.

If this sounds fun, then stick around because my goal is to write, learn, and create more 🙂

Do the damn thing is my motto, and I need to start following it.

Gemini Szn

Today we enter the twin flame energy of Gemini Season for what will probably be a weird 30ish days (because the world hasn’t been weird enough for that past two months…right?). Gemini are social butterflies and their season is usually filled with tons of social outings and we all currently have cabin fever….so things could get interesting and already are with many states reopening.

This is a time to be *smart* about being social. Both in terms of reopening and re-entering society but also being honest with your communication. Gemini’s twins are often seen as two-faced…so don’t fall into the lying trap as Venus(Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto) is also retrograde. Big yikes- boundaries are real, make sure to nicely enforce them.

It is an airy season (see what I did there)- so be forgiving if you double book yourself or forget plans. With so much communication going on, it is difficult to absorb it all.

Shake off the comfort (and eating in bed) of Taurus season and embrace the energetic vibes of Gemini season (safely of course… I would appreciate everyone except the inner circle staying 6 feet away from me moving forward).

Attempting to do shit during a pandemic.

I started this journey of Apricity Alchemy with the goal of motivating myself to learn some shit. My thought was: if I learn it and then explain it to my tiny amount of IG followers.. I will learn it even better and someone might think it is cool. The dream is that what you have to say resonates with someone out there in the world and what you create improves their life just as much as it improves yours and I was off to chase that feeling.

DOPE FUCKING IDEA TO HAVE IN FEBRUARY OF 2020 BEFORE A WHOLE ASS PANDEMIC CAME….AM I RIGHT?!?

Ask me how much I have learned about astrology since coming home from my amazing birthday trip. Or how much more comfortable I am reading tarot for others. Or how my website is coming along.

It has been an absolute struggle to motivate myself to sit and immerse myself into things I want to learn. I was stuck in an anxiety tilt-a-whirl and unable to find the exit.

Strangely enough, I might not have learned anything remotely new about astrology or gotten my website close to the vision of beauty in my mind, but I have learned some new things. I am far more emotionally capable than I have ever been my entire life. I can handle things with much more logic (eventually…once the emotions pass) and find the positive side of things (some days that one takes longer). I have learned to slow down and REST when my body is tired. I now enjoy drying flowers, roasting my own coffee beans, and walking my dog to Starbucks. Essentially- I am learning to unwind the ball of stress and embrace the fuckshit going on around us.

Even in the midst of a pandemic, I think we would all be surprised at how much about ourselves we have learned-both good and bad. I wish I held the answer as to how to get shit done during a pandemic no matter what the mood is…but I think of all the things I have learned, the most important has been that the goal right now is to make it through the day knowing that you did your absolute best. If you made it to the end and it wasn’t your best, then just focus on the fact that you made it and attempt to make the next day better.
