February Unicorn and Dragon Forecast

Having posted the customary individual February Tarotscopes for all 12 Zodiac signs on my main blog, I thought it would be fun to do a wee February Unicorn and Dragon forecast for the collective. What energies are we playing with this month? What lessons do we need to learn? Where are we heading collectively?

Chakra Removal--It's a Thing!

Sometimes, people ask questions that get our minds racing until we find the answer we need. This frenzied search for understanding always makes me feel close to Odin. Astrologically, we're nicely positioned for it at the moment too, with Mercury conjunct Pluto in Capricorn. I truly appreciate people who ask the tough questions, the brave questions that nobody has dared to ask before. I came across one such question in my social media feed yesterday, about the chakras

The Goddess is Back!

When I had my spiritual crisis (Dark Night of the Soul) and ego-self torn to shreds in the spring of 2020, I threw out all of my esoteric, occult, and magickal objects. As crazy as I know that sounds, it was exactly the right thing for me to do at that point in time. There are certain rare objects that I will never ever be able to replace and that still makes me go double facepalm when I think about them going in the skip... But it was still the right thing to do.

The Northern Mysteries are Merging with the Mysteries of the Stars

Mercury is retrograde
as of yesterday so I am going back over my sites and thinking about what to keep, what to improve and what to get rid of. I've come to the conclusion that it is superfluous for me to have a site that is separate for the Northern Mysteries. So I'm putting Lyfjaberg on hold for now and looking into maybe merging the posts from there with this blog.

Star Ancestors -- I Feel the Gods in My Body

 

Star Ancestors

Our body is a masterpiece of the cosmos. Our body carries within it the stars, the moon, the universe, and the presence of all our ancestors. How many millions of years of evolution has it taken to give rise to these wondrous two eyes, legs, feet and hands?
- Thich Nhat Hanh

Did you miss me? Sorry for not blogging on here in the past couple of months but I had to focus on getting through the 75 Hard program. I completed this on Friday, 5 November, and am very pleased with the process of growth and transformation that took place in this mental toughness challenge. Not even for a second did I contemplate giving up before reaching the finishing line. Most of the good habits I implemented, I will keep in my life--especially the reading and working out daily. I'm not going to miss having to take a daily progress picture or chugging a gallon of water a day though.

Some time ago, while still doing 75 Hard, I decided to dedicate myself to following the old gods of my Norse ancestors in the New Year (at Samhain) to see what I can learn from them about myself and life in general. I have written some more about my thinking around this decision in my post about Connecting with Odin for anybody who is interested.

How to Tend the Flames of Your Heart

 

how to tend the flames of your heart
 

This morning, after my second 75 Hard workout and 5-minute cold shower, I was listening to  Dr Billy Alsbrook as I was getting dressed. The track below is probably my favourite track of his. I get so many goosebumps from it. It ignites my desire to express myself. On a 3 Lifepath, self-expression is everything. Somewhere along the line, I lost faith in myself and my creativity. I looked around at what everybody else was doing and started wondering if that was what I should be doing too... WRONG!
