Extra-Galactic Rays Coming From A Black Hole In Aquarius

I Interested in the Solar Minimum and Astrology? You are in the right place because I’m obsessed. I’ve stayed up late researching and live-chatting with space meteorologists. You wouldn’t know it by the current social structure but Astronomy came out of Astrology. Someone had to track all the stars and planets while ancient astrologers wafted around writing sonnets to Sirius and trying to talk down antsy Emperors. So it’s been …

Vettius Valens

An Aquarius Man Of The 2nd Century

The best (or worst, depending on your perspective) takedown of Aquarius men was written by a 2nd Century Aquarius man. Vettius Valens was an in demand astrologer of the 2nd Century.

Where Should I Buy A Crystal Ball From?

A simple email asking for my crystal ball recommendations has opened up a whole new line of thought! Hi Mystic! A friend gifted me a very witchy base for a crystal ball. I fell down a rabbit hole on the internet looking for a place to get one that didn’t feel like snake oil (Amazon) or like I was being ripped off (Etsy). What do you think of scrying? Are …
