Phagos Beech is our Messenger today, going deep within. She speaks of connection to our ancestors; to places and times we resonate with. There is wisdom there and you are being called to learn. She offers support and grounding in your projects and encourages you to not give up! However daunted you may feel, what you’re working on is important; a Soul Goal, which may take up to a year to complete! Beech will help you to the finish line.🌸🌿
What stories are coming forth about your family line, or of people and places that intrigue? What are you being drawn to? Write it down, learn more, take the class, or keep working on your project; Beech is here to encourage and help. 🌸🌿
This has to be generally one one of my favourite cards, and one that decks quite often throw out for me as a bit of a joke. That being said this version is very different, and it seems much more about things not quite being in the completion stage yet. The top being created on the loom looks great, but it's a long way from being worn and used.
Today I'm very drawn to the dark, night parts of this card, and I know that's reminding me that I need to spend some time doing shadow work this year. It's time I really delved deep into those dark, uncomfortable parts of myself and figure out which bits I need to embrace and celebrate, and which bits it's time to say farewell to for good.
• ♡ GAIA’s HOLY TRINITY ♡ •
Sometimes I just get an inspired vision of something, and I have to try and create it.
I feel like I’m in a phase of trying out a bunch of different creative directions and techniques, and that it all is going to come together into a creative whole pretty soon. I can see it coming in my astrochart aswell so it makes sense 😁 • ♡
So this pendant is made with what in a lot of native tribes are known as the trinity of nature, because it represents the totality of existence and earth and our evolution as conscious beings. Mineral, plant and animals 💚
The beads are rose quartz crystal, the stone of Venus, love, harmony, soothing and balancing energy. The wooden pearls represent our plants and trees 💚 And the feathers are white and colorful peacocks, for our animal friends 💫 •
This is the first, but certainly not the last I make. If it speaks to you, let me know via DM!
I already have more visions of stuff I have to put into form, but I follow the flow and for now just enjoy creating when I feel inspired, or if I get commissions of course. •
“In nature nothing is rushed, yet everything is accomplished” - Lau Tzu 💜
Take care 🙏🏻💫

The Queen if Stones is our Messenger today, reminding us of our inner strength and passion. She knows her own worth and embodies it fully, without any need to defend or prove herself to others. Instead of complaining that she is stressed or hard done by, this Queen takes matters into her own hands with her own self care. She likes a bit of luxury, so this may be in the form of a few candles and essential oils in a hot bath, with soothing music. Where can you take this Queens advice today? Where can you show up for yourself, wisely and authentically? 🌸🌿
This piece is made with smoky quartz and green aventurine. Celestial Smoky Quartz and vital Green Aventurine are entwined in delicate foliage, nurturing new ideas as they move into creation. Smoky Quartz is a powerful stone associated with protection, grounding, and connection to the unseen realms. It amplifies the properties of other crystals that surround it as well as aiding us in releasing the negativity that may be holding us back from our true potential. Correlating to the Crown Chakra, Smoky Quartz connects us to the spiritual world while keeping us anchored in physical reality. The Green Aventurine, nestled in Nature’s burgeoning leaves, enhances creativity and draws in luck. It is also said to help develop patience, promote tranquillity, and release old negative patterns that can weigh us down. Green Aventurine connects us to Nature and her innate wisdom, shining a gentle light on previously dark paths. Together they connect Celestial and Earthly, protecting and uplifting the wearer along their journey. This unique design would suit those who need to facilitate releasing negativity, support workers, creative types, and those who are exposed to the negativity of others.

Snow is falling gently outside my window, and the scarf I'm knitting for my 9yo is coming right along.
Someone once told me I had "mannish" hands, and it stuck with me, but not for the reasons the words stung at first.
It's true. My mother's hands are the epitome of traditional feminine grace -- long, delicate fingers and small palms. Small ring size. Piano playing hands. I don't have her hands (my 13yo does). I have my father's hands, and like his, they reflect how I use them. They are broad of palm and thick-fingered, scarred and often (as pictured) ink-stained from art or writing.
These hands are clumsy, yet capable, quick to learn and always willing to try. They only know the most basic knit stitch, and they must work with inexpensive yarn. But there is magic in these hands, and no one else could knit the blessings I can, blessings woven into every row of this simple, warm scarf for my daughter.

It is necessary sometimes to be cleansed by the water and let those things that no longer serve us to wash away. The ever-cycle of death and rebirth is a fact of life that we must always expect. Sometimes the movement sweeps us off our feet and carries us away on the current, and we have to just let it take us where we need to go.
It is also necessary to keep ourselves topped up with the things that fill us with love and happiness, taking only what we need from others, and giving the excess good stuff onto those that need it more. It's a fine balance to give and take, but we must always keep ourselves topped up otherwise we will have nothing to give others.
Winter’s waking up! Love seeing the mistletoe come into fruit in the tree at the front of my house. I love this tree. In the spring it’s covered in pink blossoms. It has a climbing white rose all the way through it that blooms until late autumn, and then the mistletoe comes out for winter. Perfect! 🌳🌙
The Druidcraft Tarot card for today: The Queen of Pentacles ~
The Queen of Pentacles has a very loving, nurturing and practical energy. She calls to us today and ask that we examine our relationship with the material realm. She understands that our bodies need nurturance with good food, loving touch and the simple sensuous pleasures that make us feel grounded and happy. She also knows that our connection to nature is key to our wellbeing. She asks that we slow down; that we take time to enjoy our bodies, our relationships, our food, our creations; to really appreciate the abundance of our material worlds. If health is an issue for you, you might like to explore ways to tenderly support your wellbeing. Whatever the stresses of day to day life bring, spend a little time outside; let nature calm you and bring clarity, then gentle face any practical worries that you have and give it your patience and care. This Queen knows the value and magic of small yet consistent practical actions, and when we add a loving focus to these, we can surprise ourselves at how much we can accomplish.
