Just listed these two in the shop. It’s been a while since I did restock of these! Thank you to all who took the time give me some advice on my last post. It was much appreciated. I am slowly finding my way through this chaos we’re living in. It is so important to try and keep busy creatively, limit social media, and find ways to stay active. Making lists of daily tasks to accomplish is very useful and motivating! I hope everyone is doing well both physically and mentally. 🖤

Gemstones included in this post are by no means a comprehensive list. Their protective properties are not just based on lore, but more importantly what I've learned through practice & working with them. Reading books would be awesome, but your intuition would be your best guide & here are some pieces from my collection. *Schorl(Black Tourmaline) & Tibetan Black Quartz & Obsidian blocks unhealthy, unwanted attachments & energetic debris. Smoky Quartz, Andradite(Melanite) garnet, Amethyst & Jet absorbs & neutralizes negativity. Aegirine(Acmite) clears out negativity on many different levels: mental, emotional, astral & spiritual. Guardianite, a mix of minerals that has recently been discovered; is said to be to an excellent guardian for its bearer. Magnetite, amongst its other properties is an excellent deterrent & offers protection from the Faefolk. Shungite not only promotes life, but it also neutralizes the negative effects of EMF making it valuable for the modern world. Lastly, Nuumite is an awesome grounding & protective stone that keeps one's aura clean & clear of negativity." These stones have other uses for sure, but I chose to focus on their protective qualities. Exploring them further would merit individual posts on their own. Hope this is helpful 🙂 #venefica #traditionalwitch #yycwitches #gemstonelore #gemstone #crystals #occult

Cards Revealed ✨ Left / Carnelian: I always trust the direction of the universe and know I am being guided. Carnelian is a stone for the Sacral Chakra - Check in with yourself today thinking about what may be causing fear in your life and try some breathing exercises for ridding fear. @garrettmccoy has some great check-ins on his page for just this Middle / Blue Apatite: My happiness is a direct reflection of my level of faith in the universe. Blue Apatite is associated with the Third Eye Chakra - how are you using your intuition these days? Are you even using it at all? Trust yourself and the universe around you. Right / Dumortierite: The universe has my back. Dumortierite coincides with the Throat Chakra - have you been feeling choked up/unable to say how you really feel these days? We often have a hard time hearing others while we aren’t able to express ourselves. Take some time to listen to others as well as yourself this week Thank you for participating in this weeks pull! We hope you’re all safe, healthy, and sane at home. As always, let us know if you have any questions or need company through this difficult time 🌹

Bought myself a present from @riteofritual they are currently offering local delivery with $50 purchase. All of the incense as well as a spell deck, a beautiful antique key, and a single draw tarot reading I talk about in another post. They threw in a little sachet filled with lavender, herbs, and tiny stones, a cute bookmark and a nice handwritten note. (the larger stones and crystals are from my collection, I just like the aesthetic) #supportlocal #riteofritual #justwitchythings #tarot #spells #incense #localwitch #yycwitches #calgaryliving #shopyyc #supportsmallbusiness #calgarypagan #treatyoself

I am trying my absolute best to keep busy during this very surreal and uncertain time we are all in. It has been a constant struggle to remain creative while dealing with anxiety. I have started taking St. John’s Wort. Does anybody have any other remedies that helps them with anxiety? 🖤

So @riteofritual is offering local delivery if you spend $50 and I needed to stock up on incense. They sell a single sealed tarot card with interpretation and I had to try one. Don't we all need a little extra guidance now? Scroll through to see what I got! So fun. Such a great store. #tarot #riteofritual #justwitchythings #localwitch #yycwitches #witchcraft #singlecardreading #shoplocal #shopyyc #calgaryliving

We’re doing something slightly different this #tarottuesday and switching to #theuniversehasyourbackdeck because it feels as though this is what we all need to hear right now 🖤 Take a deep breath through the nose and release out your mouth with a great sigh - take another deep breath, this time breathing light into your heart, and then release through your mouth with a great sigh. Repeat as many times as feels right then choose your card ✨ Left / Carnelian, Middle / Blue Apatite, Right / Dumortierite Comment your choice below and we will like it when the reveal is posted tomorrow🌹

I started reading regular playing cards when I was 13 or so, to pass time with s few of my friends. Didn't took it seriously until friends of friends asked for me to read for them..then my teachers & even a few parents all the way to college & adult life. I got my first custom fortune teller cards as a gift & later on the golden universal Rider Waite tarot deck Here are some of my tips that worked for me when I was starting to learn to read: a.)drinking chamomile or saffron tea, b.)using a white candle & smoke to clear my energy, cards I'm using & the space I'm reading in..personal faves are mugwort, palo santo & myrrh, c.)crafting(or buying) an oil blend to improve one's intuition..I'll post a recipe later..& d.)having a gemstone with me or as a piece of jewelry to help me center & amplify my intuitive skills. Divination for me isn't something set in stone, we have free will for a reason. It looks at the past & the present & not just future potential outcomes. Sometimes we can't change what is to come but we can adjust how we can best react to it. #venefica #traditionalwitch #yycwitches #divination #tarot #occult

I love this 1950’s patterned pleated circle skirt! This one comes out of my personal collection. Bought this in San Francisco while my old band was on tour. Super soft cotton, fantastic colour scheme and pattern. Great condition Considering it’s age. There is one little spot pictured where the fabric has worn away. Minor.

I would say that the most you'd learn would be from the Spirits themselves..but it doesn't hurt to read books from time to time. These two are my latest go to when I'm taking a break from categorizing my essential oils by note & scent family(latest project of mine) or mundane chores around the house. I've always kept an open mind & will always be a bookworm at heart. I hope everyone stay safe & I'll be sharing more on here soon.

I’ll be having a mini update this Sunday. These and a few other styles will be available then. I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy.

Since all our roots are growing out, some of you may be thinking it’s time to embrace your natural grey. To say goodbye to the skunk line forever is an empowering thing!!!! But what if you just love getting your color done?!⁣ ⁣ There are still options when you complete your transition!!! (for details on how this can be done gracefully, check out my other grey posts immediately to the lower diagonal right on my page!) ⁣ ⁣ In this case my client’s hair naturally tends to yellow over time (combination of Calgary’s hard water and extreme weather 😬) so we do a demipermanent gloss to neutralize those tones! I’m super picky about what product I use, so the #caluragloss that I use for this is a “true demi” which means it doesn’t permanently touch her natural pigment, it just glosses a tone over it. This way when it fades it hasn’t made the yellow worse (if a demi is too alkaline it can act like a sheer permanent and go brassy over time)⁣ ⁣ We can also do demi permanent lowlights to deepen your natural silver for a seasonal change, letting it fade over time back to its natural.⁣ ⁣ Since I’m currently closed for Covid-19 (and extremely bored!!!!!) I’m doing complementary online consultations so we can make plans for your triumphant return to society! Message me and we’ll discuss all your options!!!!⁣ ⁣ Formula: Calura Gloss 10V with 7vol lotion⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #glossgetter #embraceyourroots #showyourroots #supportyourstylist #greytransition #yycmoms #yycliving #yycnow #yycmomboss #yycbossbabe #yycwitches #yycpagan #yyclocal #yyclife #yychair #yychairstlyist #naturalcolor #greyisbeautiful #hairtips #hairmagic #hairgoddess #lowmaintenancehair #trubeautyliveshere #hairgloss #greyblending

Cards revealed ✨ This was such an interesting pull! Thank you for participating 😘 we hope this brings some guidance for you this week Eight of Cups: not surprising that this card has shown up at this time. The 8 of cups reminds us that some things are not worth waiting for. Associated with stagnation and ill health, this card shows up when we need to move on from a situation or idea that is no longer serving us. Pining after that lost relationship or goal isn’t going to bring it back. Release the hold that is on you and look ahead at what some new goals and dreams may be. Daughter of Cups (reversed): there is no denying what’s happening in our world today and it makes sense that some of us may be feeling unmotivated and drab because of it. This card, when reversed, symbolizes a struggle to find that creativity and emotion you normally have flowing through you. You may be feeling blocked right now, numb even, and that’s okay! Give yourself some space and rest - try again when you are feeling well. Sometimes we just need to slow down and breathe. Ace of Swords: this high energy card shows up when our minds are ready to expand! How exciting all these new ideas and dreams are! Now is the perfect time to sink your teeth into that project you’ve been putting off or that craft you’ve been thinking about starting. Take your time to really plan it out and get it the way you want, there’s no need for rushing into anything. Enjoy it! 🌹 This deck is one of my absolute favourites to read with - I felt an immediate connection to it and get amazing messages when I work with it. If you are wondering which it is, check out #wildunknowntarot @the_wild_unknown

At the back of my mind i knew this is definitely a possibility, but actually knowing it saddens my heart. Keys to She Who Walks and Rules the Crossroads, black moonstone & a dried rose to celebrate the new moon. At dusk on the night of this new moon, I'll light this candle for those grieving families who lost someone, especially for those who passed away unaccounted for & those officially listed during this outbreak.

It’s #tarottuesday again! How is everyone feeling these days? I know I’m getting pretty tired of being alone so much! What’s been on your mind lately? Is there something you need to take a look at now that you can’t avoid yourself? What exactly should you be focusing on? Thinking about one of these or your own question, take a deep breath in through the nose and release it powerfully through the mouth. Center yourself by taking another deep breath and as you release through the mouth, look at the cards. Which calls to you? Which stone speaks to you? Left/Amethyst, Middle/Opalite, or Right/Rose Quartz? Comment below and we will like your choice when we post the reveal tomorrow! 🌹

Given our current global health concern, I've re-made this tonic recipe to help boost & protect my health & those I hold dear. Also made an essential oil blend version of it too. There are many versions of it out there, but here's a personal recipe that is edible. Garlic, rosemary, sage, thyme, peppercorns, cayenne & black mustard seed steeped in apple cider vinegar. New moon is an awesome time to start burning dragon's blood candle with it along with other items I use to help charge this concoction. Wash your hands. Stay at home unless its crucial to go out & stay safe everyone. #venefica #newmoon # #traditionalwitch #yycwitches #occult #crystal #herbs #stayathome #staysafe

There is so much beauty in our universe and while it forever evolves, it will always be beautiful ❤️⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ This look was inspired by the Suns in our galaxy, bright warm lights in the middle of darkness. Sometimes it’s tempting to only look at the surface, or just stare into the darkness, but there is always warmth and light if you’re willing to look ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I think a lot of us are a bit scared right now, between the constant media coverage and the mob-like panic it’s easy to lose yourself in the chaos. But don’t forget to take time to take care of yourself, to fill your bucket. Do a yoga flow at home, take a nice bath, or drink a cup of tea while talking to a friend over the phone. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I have made the tough decision to temporarily close my new studio in order to do my part in preventing the spread of covid-19. I’m hoping to be back soon, but in the meantime if you wish to support me, my booking button is going to change to my gift card link and I will be setting up product tagging for online shopping (with contactless home delivery in Calgary!)⁣ ⁣⁣ Stay safe ❤️⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ #galaxyhair #thesunwillcomeouttomorrow #hairalchemist #hairwitch #hairmagic #yychair #yychairstylist #yyccolorist #yycliving #yycnow #yyclocal #yycsmallbusiness #yycfempreneur #yycmoms #yycmomlife #yycmomboss #yycbeauty #yycbuzz #ouryyc #yycholistic #yycwitches #yychairsalons #citizensalonyyc #yycgirls #yycgirlgang

What's a Witch to do... Update for our beloved community 🖤 Thank you SO MUCH for all of your love and support through these unbelievable, strange days so far, truly. We have made the very (very) hard, but also very easy decision to temporarily close our storefront, for as long as is needed. Health + safety is our top priority, and we are committed to doing everything we can to help protect The All. ⚔️ Our new Local Delivery is set up on riteofritual.com now 👏🏻 + our normal flat rate shipping options for all of our beautiful non-local loves. Local deliveries are being made every Mon/Wed/Friday, more often if the need is there. 🛸📦🛸 This is the safest way to continue providing you with our treasures, self-care items, and ritual tools. We’re here to help lift your spirits and support you through this absolutely insane time, any way we can. We want our local delivery orders to feel like presents on your doorstep. We could all use some presents right now, I say 🎁 link in bio for treasures!☝️ In the short term, this decision is still ours to make, but we do not expect it to be for long. We are scared but we have faith. Social distancing, simply CAN NOT be an option right now. 😔 Our actions now, matter ahead. Many feel alone right now... WE ARE WITH YOU. Our dearest Lindsey is soon going to jump in here, available on the daily for help with dm's, and direct support... as if you were IRL chatting in the store. River, 🐕 will be helping, too. 😊 We will quickly have the best way to convert our workshops, readings, and gatherings ready for you too. ✨ I haven't even mentioned we have a Pre-Order for Threads of Fate up. 😳 I’m so sorry it’s taken this long to get our ducks in a row, so much happening 😬 Much more to say ahead! Nothing but respect, love and gratitude for you and yours. ♥️ TAKE CARE OF YOU. Take care of each other. Thank you for your incredible support. Friends... we love you.

This staying at home business has us going a bit stir crazy, as we are sure it’s got everyone a little tense! It’s given us the opportunity to practice some new recipes for the shop, though 😘 Pictured here is a new soap bar for the face (of course it works on hands too!) with activated charcoal and aloe for a soothing clean. It also have olive oil for moisturizer and lavender + lemon EO. Smells soooo good and leaves the skin feeling super clean and invigorated! We can’t wait to have these ready for you once it is perfected! Stay tuned for when this and other soap bars will be available 🌹 Stay safe and sane, everyone!

Cards Revealed ✨ . . . Descriptions from the #marigoldtarotdeck guide with my interpretation after Seven of Wands: This card concerns itself with disobedience, resistance, and determination. The mignonette branches are shown in different stages of their lives. Mehndi, made from the leaves, is used to Mark the body; in the same way this card symbolizes marking oneself. For me, this symbolizes a time when we lose track of the bigger picture and start focusing on all the little things going wrong/not the way we want. Take a step back and breathe. King of Rings: Symbolizes power, knowledge, success, and reliability. In a fashion, one would suggest that everything he touches turns to gold. His “ring” haloes his head, indicating that he is rich in practical knowledge. His keen instincts, cooperative nature, and business sense are his greatest assets. The berm leaves surrounding him refer to the sheer abundance and potential present within him. For me, this card symbolizes a time of prosperity, and what are we now if not prosperous in time. How are we able to use this time for ourselves? Think about something you’ve always wanted to do then do it. Nine of Swords, reversed: This card can suggest doubt, shame, and suspicion. For me, this card shows up at a time of needing to be honest with ourselves and how we are feeling/spending our time. Whether we have been taught that only happiness is a valid emotion or not, we need to remember that all emotions are worthy of being felt when we need to. Leave a comment below if your card resonated with you! 🥰 🌹

I decided to give in and ask about the Covid-19 pandemic. Specifically, what we can expect and the outcome. I shuffled hand over hand several times and drew the following; 2 of Pentacles. Struggling to maintain balance when equilibrium is disrupted. I can’t think of a better card, but stay tuned because it’s about to get weirder! 7 of Wands crosses the 2 of Pentacles, which is disrupting the previous card of balance. The 7 of Wands, challenges or competition. When you look at the imagery in this card you see the subject trying to emerge from the forest of the wands. There’s visible confusion and some panic in there. So the two previous cards represent the present, the next two are the near future and extended future. Here’s what turned over. Near future, 2 of Swords. As you can see from the imagery, this card is the archetype of conflict, a stalemate or crossroads. When I look at this card the imagery speaks volumes to our current crisis. Brothers drawing swords against another. Could the skin tones of each one also suggest the xenophobia present? The final card is the far future, and it’s a comforting one. 10 of Cups, harmony, balance, bliss. We see a family under a rainbow of cups symbolic of fulfillment and the end of a journey. This is an overwhelmingly positive outcome, but the real question is, how far away is this? 3 months? 6 months? A year? There’s a saying in divination, that timing of events can unravel in “divine time” or basically whenever the universe decides to make it happen. What’s your thoughts on this spread? What do you see in the cards? Doom? Hope? ✨🔮✨🙌 . #tarot #tarotcards #tarotreading #deviantmoon #deviantmoontarot #patrickvalenza #cartomancy #covid_19 #divination #yycwitches

Whoa, it’s #tarottuesday and we almost missed it again! Not today, Satan. Not. Today. ✨ Center yourself. Take a deep breath in through the nose and out the mouth. This has been an intense time for a lot of people and I’ve meditated on what we really need to hear right now. Focus on what you are looking for from the universe, what is it that you need? Choose the card or stone that calls to you. Comment below with your card and we will like your post when the cards are revealed tomorrow.

We are implementing a new local delivery option in the next few hours, more info coming on that. 👏🏻 We are encouraging our community to utilize these options, to help us keep being of service to you, while also allowing us to support social distancing. We firmly support the clear data that social distancing is how we can slow the spread of this global pandemic. It is how we will protect our vulnerable and high risk family and community. So many small businesses are in the same boat as us, with every day worth of sales falling into the make or break category. I encourage you all to support as many independents and makers that you SAFELY can in the coming days, weeks, and months, in any way that you can. Future posts and stories with ideas and ways we are doing this too. 🙏🏻 To my fellow small business owners, to the many of you reading this already negatively affected or sick, to anyone who is scared: We are here to do anything we can to support us all through this. You are not alone. The impacts are going to be dramatic for many. WE ARE WITH YOU. Such love, respect, and gratitude for you and yours. ♥️ take care of yourselves, and each other. 🙏🏻 Thank you for reading, and for your incredible support. Many more updates to come ✨

The Hermit. I've posted this card before, however this post is more about global circumstances than tarot. With work, events, travel all shutting down while uncertainty rules, I feel now more than ever mindfullness and self care practices are essential. How can you creatively direct your energy instead of giving into the fear of uncertainty. Now is the time to spend evaluating those things we put off for ourselves that will bring peace to our psyche's, nourish our hearts, and calm our minds. If anything times like these show us that we need to be supportive of our community as it struggles, while being easy on ourselves. What can you do today that will bring a sense of control to your personal environment? We can't control the circumstances, however we can choose how we react to them. For me, my city is encased in -20 temperatures and 40cm of snow. So today I'm directing my energy creatively. Making a large pot of home made soup to nourish my body and boost my immune system, creating new batches of soap to feed my curiosity, writing and reading to capture my mind. Much love and stay safe on this snowy Albertan Saturday lovelies. #covid_19 #yyc #yychealthcoach #empowermentcoach #femaleempowerment #empowerment #yychealth #yyclightworkers #lightworker #selfcare #mindfullness #tarotreader #yycreiki #yycwitches #witch #reikihealing #intuitivecoach #begentle #personalgrowthcoach #personalgrowthjourney #energyhealer #coach #communitylove #love #supportlocalbusiness #vibetribe

A couple of years ago at the Millarville Christmas market I absolutely fell in love with this Celtic Sun. This year, I order a companion piece a Celtic Moon. Ryan at @mishmashmetal designed this for me incorporating the Celtic zodiac and I could not be happier with how it looks, and how they compliment each other. Ryan is an amazing artist and if you are ever looking an incredible piece of artwork seriously give him a shout!! It may take me another year to decide what other piece I need in my life but I am excited to see how Ryan will take my basic idea and turns it into a piece that will hang in my home for ever! #yycartist #yycnow #yyc #yycliving #yyclocalartists #supportlocal #amazingartist #celticsun #celticmoon #mishmashmetal #crystallickinghippie #yycwitches #yycwitch #witchesofinstagram #witchesofinstagram🔮🌙 #metalart #metalworkartist

I’m super excited to announce that the Inspire Hair Artistry Studio is officially OPEN!!!!!⁣ ⁣ It’s been a long wait, but it’s finally done and settled! There were a few hiccoughs and I’m SUPER nervous taking on all the challenges of a commercial business, but I’m looking forward to the opportunity to care for you all the way I’ve always wanted to.⁣ ⁣ The space is in the salon collective @citizen.salon.studios Marda Loop, which means there are 16 mini salons (or spas 🧖‍♀️) in the same building. Since we’re all individually owned, it gives us an opportunity to create the environments we want without having to commit to a larger business.⁣ ⁣ I’m taking clients here full-time and have new availabilities (including Sundays 😁)⁣ ⁣ Huge thanks to my business partner Erica @chakrahairstudioyyc who made it possible to get this space, I can’t wait to grow our businesses side by side. Thank you to Jeff and Elaine at Citizen for creating this wonderful idea and taking care of all the messy stuff - seriously you guys are AMAZING ❤️⁣ And thank you Roshan and Brad and everyone @trubeautysalonservices and @oligopro who have supported me with product knowledge and support ❤️ ⁣ And finally, I want to thank all of you for making this possible! I wouldn’t have been able to do this without such amazing clients! Keep an eye on my stories as I will be doing some opening promotions for the next couple months (since I have so much more time to take you all!!)⁣ ⁣ Message me for your appointment! I’m also now taking complementary in-person consultations (which can also be booked online!) if you want to meet and discuss your personal hair plan.⁣ ⁣ See you soon ❤️⁣ ⁣ Steph⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #yychair #yychairstylist #yycsalon #citizensalonstudios #localbeautyca #yycgirls #yycgirlgang #yycbalayage #yycliving #yycmompreneur #yycfempreneur #yycsmallbiz #intheloop #calgaryhair #calgaryhairstylist #yyccolorist #haircolorspecialist #yyclocal #yycnow #yycwitches #yycpagan #yyclovelocal #buylocalyyc #calgaryalberta
