My June was hectic! I had a lot going on from belly dance practise for a performance at the end of the month and doing more magick. Seemed like I had quite a few people wanting to catch up with me and then I offered free readings and had over 40 to do! I really pushed myself to do so much in my life because I didn’t really feel like my work was giving me the best of attitudes.
13th July marks my anniversary day for dedicating myself as a witch. I still have so much to learn but I just didn’t realise how fast the year and a day turned. I haven’t figured out what I wanted to do as a self celebratory ritual but I think I will figure it out on the go – whatever comes naturally right? This anniversary coincides with a blood moon so lucky me! I think it will be a powerful night.
So many opportunities have been presenting themselves and I am so grateful the way my life has turned out. When I offered free readings, I realised that not everyone provides feedback and not everyone says thank you. I found this quite disappointing as I’m trying to learn and improve myself but to not say thank you, is just plain rude. I find that people can be impatient as well. Even when I said I would give a number and a day of the week I would have the reading done by, people would still message me. It was an eye opener to how to manage and deal with people as I want to make this into a business.
My belly dance performance was fun! I actually fell sick that day with a fever and felt a bit dizzy but I worked so hard for months to perform and I wasn’t going to miss it. The last time I performed was in high school and that was 17 years ago. I was quite nervous when I got on stage but when it was over, I felt so exhilarated! I was so proud of myself for pushing comfort zones and just going for it!
Tuesdays I still attend a group meditation and a lot of my messages have been to connect with my ancestors. I have so much work to do on this but since I keep getting repeated messages, I need to get on this! Wednesdays I have been filling with practise tarot nights and motivational magick with other witches. It has been great in getting me to perform magick more often because I don’t always make time for it.
I’ve been to quite a few gigs in June. Was quite magical in the sense of being free and listening to music with all these random people and sharing our love for that artist. I live for those experiences and don’t have any gigs until November now. So, I’m definitely just on the lookout to go to more unknown artists.
I also had my first live reading day with my medium skills. I have been doing a year course since August last year and didn’t know how I’d go doing readings for strangers. Sometimes I feel blocked and can’t always see loved ones crossed over or any guides. That day I had 9 spirits come through, both people and animals for 2 people I read for. It was just the confidence boost I needed to really propel me into the belief that I can do anything I set my mind to.
This month, I was offered to become a reader at the Muses of Mystery in Melbourne on Monday afternoons and it’s all very exciting! I was going to build up to that but it presented itself so I went for it! I am actually in the process of building my business and doing tarot reading at the same time. I eventually want to make this a full time job but at the moment, I will need to side hustle.
So my July was meant to be a rest month but I am finding that it might just be a lil bit hectic as I start my own business. Never actually dreamed of being my own boss but here I am, just going for it! When I figure out a website, business name and set up a way for people to pay or donate, then I shall advertise that so I can do readings for people. It’s an exciting time in my life and I didn’t know it would end up this way. Got to work hard to make this business a success!
