i am so grateful for what my hands teach me. They teach me the pleasure of touch and boundaries and textures. They bring food to my mouth & sensation throughout my body. They illustrate & sew and give Sweet massages... I honor my hands by celebrating them by inviting them into a sensual space divined for them... ❄️a muff!!🔮 ... this muff was inspired by the moon- it is created with delicate uocycled fibers that will soothe your heart and exhale the senses. Lined with 1 layer of fleece, it’s not very warm, but the black sensual lining makes it a sanctuary. 💎$50 + shipping 💎
I have a fuller curvier and more colourful body now and it means the world to me to learn to love it. Baring everything when I haven't been in front of a camera lile this for years! (I've never been completely skyclad for a shoot before). This is reclaiming my body back from the guilt about it... reclaiming my skin, not apologising to anyone for my emotive, creative and magickal love of life. I am finding my voice. Refusing to apologise for who I am, refusing to make myself less to please or feel wanted.
I'm in love with this image by @tashysaurus a photographer I look up to so damn much. It was amazing to take snaps of each other at one of the idyllic spots in Victoria I could find. Sharing our nakedness together loving the earth magick and the healing cleansing water wash away all the bullshit of the past. Thank you babe for making this new year start with such a healing experience! I love you. 💛💛🖤🖤💛💛🔮

This is my year of coming home to water, finding peace among the waves, and learning to navigate through any weather.
I live on the outskirts of Amsterdam, in a flat, about 35 km from the seaside, and yet as I stepped out of my door this morning I found these 😍🐚🌊, on the street in a little pile in front of our apartment. I'm super grateful for this unexpected gift.
Divination tonight, second spread, a little over 3 pages written, talkative spirits tonight #queerwitch#magic
Mid week check in: The Hermit 🕯🔦 — how do we access The Hermit’s energy? Apprentice of Keys Reversed🔥🔑 — if you can today(midweek), try to access your internal wisdom, take a break from excitement and overstimulation, put the project down, allow yourself the special time to be with yourself. It can be hard to be alone with our thoughts, scary things can come forward, it’s easier to surround ourselves with socializing and distractions but for the mid week, we’re being asked to turn inward, to sit quietly and to let yourself receive the gentle care you deserve. The Hermit is ruled by Virgo so what is your day to day way of taking care? What rituals do you have set up in your life? What playlists guide you to calmness? Do you watch ASMR vids? Do you read? Pull tarot cards? Clean your altars? Paint your nails? We are physical beings that are attracted to physical pleasures, once we recognize the ways that our rituals are our spirituality the more we can let messages come through from the divine. I offer you the challenge of stillness, even if just for five minutes, then you can go back to the rush and high energy of life.
Looking for some more personal insight? Book a reading with me! I offer email, Skype, and in person sessions. Check my website for pricing and more info 🔮

The inverted #six#sixntacles is telling you to mind where your money goes. Unfortunately, there are unscrupulous people in this world that take what is not theirs to turn a profit. We tend to see a lot of this happening in the modern "spiritual & wellness" movements. The theft of what was once not allowed, literally beaten out of people now coming back into style and price points so high that the people who initially had these things are no longer able to access them. For people who create and work in this sector this is telling us to ask us how we are making our money. Are we doing it honestly? We have to make a living but how are we adding to oppression? Are we re-distributing our wealth? The point of spirituality and wellness is shared spaces and knowledge, not hoarding and creating false ideas of scarcity. It would serve us well to keep that in mind this year because the underbelly is now being exposed. #dishonesty#newage#wea#wealthstribution #money #wealth #resources #six #pentacles#tarot#dailytarot#cardoftheday#tarotcards#tarotreading#tarotreadersofinstagram#energyworker#energyhealer#urbanwitch#queerwitch#selfcare#ofearthandsalt
DOUBLE DRAW: Dagaz and no. 24 from Prof. Pam’s “With Your Shield Or On It” deck- You’re trapped in time today. Yes, you. Expansiveness has not come easy this week, and how funny it is that our attempts at combating the stagnation only creates more friction with our energy. Today, we must begin to remember that not everything exists in duality. Get the idea out of your head that your current path is ‘all or nothing.’ If you remain myopic in the road ahead, we forgot to discover the little enclaves, corridors, and magical gardens surrounding the road. Our trail looks bleak when all we see is the destination and the work. By letting go of the resistance towards time and flow, we can start to experience the world in technicolor! And the shades and hues all around us, these are the gatekeepers to our universe of support. 🐏✨🌙
Have we met, formally? I’ll introduce myself. 🤓 I’m Ella Birt. I’ve led an unusual life with many adventures including living in a VW Bus with a woman named Tinkerbell, working as a phone psychic, and studying tarot with a group of Druids. I grew up in a foster home, but was mostly raised by my Kindergarten teacher until I was 13. I went out on my own at 17, and put myself through college, getting a BS in justice studies. I focused my degree on social change movements, identity formation, and writing. During my time in college, I worked as an event planner, executive assistant, and discussion facilitator for an on campus LGBTQIA organization. I’m a highly-sensitive creative with deep empathy, and I identify as queer. I’ve spent the past 20 years studying and practicing mindfulness, philosophy, and Eastern religions with some exceptional mentors as my guides. ✨ ***~~~***
Today, I’m using all of these skills to serve my community as a coach, writer, and course creator. I help other HSPs & conscious creatives use mindfulness to tune into intuition, productivity, confidence, and compassion. We talk about developing new emotional habits, tools for mind-mapping, habit tracking, intuition pumps, and idea curation. Since I’ve also dealt with lifelong depression and anxiety, we get into being productive and self-accepting during those times too. 💜***~~~***
Tell me something special about you in the comments below. .
Does anyone else cringe when they hear the word "feminine"? I pulled the Empress card today, and although I got what was she was saying to me, I couldn't connect with her. For me feminine as an adjective has always been equated with meekness and weakness, with being submissive and not having a voice or a seat at the table. The way this word is used in religion and churches, in business, in politics, etc, to describe a softer way of being makes me 😒😲😵😤. I understand that it symbolizes compassion, love, etc, but being word-obsessed as I am using it as an adjective feels like a distillation and oversimplification of what a woman can be and is. .
I've always been drawn to female figures and goddesses which encompass both life and death, softness and power, destruction and creation, such as the wild woman archetype ("Women Who Run with the Wolves"? Obsessed). Those were the ancient depictions of the feminine and they were complex and multifaceted. I was always grateful that I was born a female human; it meant I could easily embrace masculine and feminine worlds and energies (anyone can, but I didn't realize why I thought the way I did until much later). I wasn't girly or feminine and I felt guilt and shame about it because people made comments on it. At the same I still judge women who embody, in my eyes, pronounced feminine energy, and I feel envious and even threatened by them, like they are judging me, even when they aren't. .
I still feel shame for not being "feminine," and I strongly resist messages that tell me to slow down, soften, be gentle. I can do that for others, but not for myself. It's a message I receive when I'm tired, and resisting it makes me more exhausted. The Empress is telling me that what I need to embody these qualities for myself right now but....aaah I'm working on it.
