This is an excellent time to take action regarding your deepest wishes and to address your biggest blockages. It is a great time for growth and self-healing . As a continuation of the previous phase, the energies present at this time can help you feel more lucid and aware of how your intuition and second nature are developing.

Shout out to my girl, @Amethyst :smiling_face_with_three_hearts::open_hands:t2::partying_face::tada:
You got both awards!!! Come on down the red carpet :rofl:
Laughter heals!!! Life’s too short!!!


Congrats @Amethyst !! :sunglasses:
Merry Meet everyone, not a lot going on this week. I do want to share with you that I had a money spell come to fruition Friday. I had done the New Moon Money Spell the last cycle and had focused on a random amount of 3300. Friday I received through two ways 3294. I had minted my doors the day before as well, but I just feel like it was the money spell that brought it through.
Elsa came through last week, no real damage just a lot of flooding.
I did get a new treasure Saturday…

Blessed Be,


Congratulations @Amethyst! Great job! The red carpet is waiting your arrival! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:
@Rowan lovely treasure, I had minimal damage from Elsa also!

I am going to Herkimer, NY in August with my husband & we are going to go mining for Herkimer Diamonds :diamond:. I’m very excited about the trip, we haven’t gone anywhere just the 2 of us since we started dating. So this is going to be great. I found out that the trip is a 5 hour drive from where we are, a little less but I rounded up. I went in high school & have been dying to go back since then.

I had my psychiatrist appointment this morning & I don’t have to talk to her again until September. Also a good feeling. Tomorrow I am getting my hair cut :scissors: & then Wednesday I have my MRI on my right wrist to see if there is anything that can be done for the extra pain since my surgery last September.

Other than that it’s a quiet week I believe. Today is muggy & like… misting… lots of humidity in the air :cloud:. So I’m trying to stay in the house :house: where it’s somewhat climate controlled. I’m enjoying coffee :coffee: right now. A good time of the day.


Congrats, @Amethyst!

@Rowan, I love the new treasure! Wonderful news that Elsa didn’t cause real damage for you.

@Siofra, It sounds like you are having a great start to your week. A lot of good news to start it. I am happy for you!


Wow. Thank you so much for the special shout-out, @TheTravelWitch! That means a lot!

Thank you!

I’d like to thank the Acadamy for this prestigious honor and my manager and … Hee! Thanks, doll! I’m always happy when posting here!

Thank you @Rowan! And congratulations on a great money spell! And your treasure is sparkly! Way to go!

Thanks, love! I’ll strike a pose here in a minute. LOL. Glad you got through Elsa okay y’all!

Sounds as if you have a lovely trip planned! It should be fun! Glad everything else seems to be falling into place for you as well, that’s great! I’m so glad for you!

Thank you my friend!


Congrats on the successful money spell and beautiful new treasure, @Rowan! :partying_face:

That’s amazing, @Siofra- what fun place for a date! I hope you’ll be able to see some amazing Herkimer Diamonds :gem: Good luck with your hair cut and MRI! :pray:

And it’s a well-deserved shout-out, @Amethyst! Congrats again to you :heart::tada:


How is the move going?


All good- thanks, Benjamin! :blush: It was a big process, but we made it successfully to my partner’s family home. We’ll enjoy the laidback countryside life for the next week before we go on a small adventure to Kraków to see the castle and fire-breathing dragon :european_castle: :dragon_face: :laughing:

After that? Still not sure. The USA is still closed to non-citizens and travel bans are constantly changing :sweat_smile: Just enjoying life minute to minute these days!

Hope everyone is enjoying a nice week so far! And hopefully with better weather too :pray::heart:
