I am Linda, a 51(nearly 52) year old that was born and raised a strict Catholic. Most of my life I have felt a pull to something “other”. My youngest is in college in Boston and my oldest has her own life and family so I am now, for the first time in my life, focusing on what I want. I have always had what many considered great insight and have predicted many things that I have attributed to intuition or lucky guesses. I have 4 amazing grandchildren 4,4,4, and 3 months and they, along with my 2 daughters, are the lights of my life. (Shortly after the birth of my first grandchild, I told my daughter she was pregnant again and it was twins…she denied it and said it wasn’t possible…then a couple weeks later called me crying from the ultrasound that showed twins. They were born early so for 4 months each year her 3 older children are the same age.) I am a Pisces sun and moon and a Cancer rising. I am interested in astrology, which led me to tarot, and I have been feeling very led to study herbalism. The moon has always been a mild obsession.

Hi @Linda-42! I’m Amethyst from Southern West Virginia. Welcome to the forum!

Hello and welcome home @Linda-42
It’s nice to me you Linda! I am Marsha, an eclectic solitary witch from Colorado. I was raised as a Methodist, but would sometimes go to a Catholic Church with my Grand-Mother.
It sounds like you have a lot of water signs in your chart. No wonder you are attracted to water! I have a Libra sun with a Scorpio moon and ascendant, so I love the water too, but I have always been called to the mountains. I only have two planets in earth signs. I love being up in the mountains, it feels like I’m on top of the world.
I can totally relate to the Hermit Tarot Card, it fits me perfectly, and I also consider myself a Child of the Moon! We have a Spells8 Book Club XXII (Oct 21 - Nov 18) you can join.
I am looking forward to getting to know you better!
With love and magick always
