Magical Miscellany 4.13.14

Magical Miscellany is a best of the web for modern mystics, showcasing my favorite links from the past seven days. Expect an eclectic mix of astrology & tarot, creativity & business, and an inside look at what I’ve been up to over the last week. C’est bon!



I went to Paris for the first time nearly a year ago, and I can't seem to get it off my mind! Needless to say I fell completely head-over-heels for the city. Seriously, who wouldn't love a gorgeous Art Nouveau cafe like this? With the romantic Venus & Neptune conjunction in effect, I've been dreaming of Paris nearly every night. Not sure what it means, but I'm certainly enjoying it!



When you work for yourself, it's easy to let the lines between business and pleasure get blurry. So what's a girl to do when talking shop starts to sound more like a free consult? Theresa Reed a.k.a. The Tarot Lady's has the low-down on what to do (and say) when your 'friends' try and score your skills for free.

Danielle LaPorte's two-part behemoth on “leaving the church of self-improvement” is a revelation. If you're feeling jaded with the self-help machine, this beautiful missive will energize and inspire.

Confession: I'm a bit obsessed with Stanley Kubrick. Did you know that last week was the 46th anniversary of the release of 2001: A Space Odyssey? Flavorwire's 25 things you didn't know about the film are enough to fascinate even a seasoned movie nerd.

I'm not a mom, but MomSpark's video about how to write and monetize an e-book is pure gold... and it features the fabulous Sarah Morgan!

This post on how to successfully transition from junk food to a vegan lifestyle is everything.

There's something special about burning things, isn't there? Herb mistress Jen Rue from Rue & Hyssop talks satisfaction in fire... and ritual.
