Before I delve into the delicate topic of women suffering from pain during sex, let me talk about what this article is not about; It’s not about BDSM or any kind of consensual pain-inflicting kink. Those of you who are hoping to for anything to get yourselves off with, are probably better off reaching for that worn and tattered copy of Fifty Shades of Grey.
It is estimated that somewhere between 10-20% of all women suffer from painful sex. While there are multiple articles online listing possible reasons for pain during intercourse, very few of them discuss this topic as an issue that concerns both parties, even though the pain can often be avoided by the man simply being better informed about a woman’s need for foreplay. While the man is rarely the root cause of the pain, he is responsible for making sure that the woman is not only pain-free but actually enjoy being intimate with him.
There are number of possible causes for discomfort and pain during intercourse and they can be divided into two main categories: Continue reading
Time for some Halloween Magick!
Witches and Pagans celebrate the New Year on Halloween, or Samhain, as it is known in Pagan circles. This is the time in the Wheel of the Year when the veil between worlds is the thinnest and the Magick is strong. Traditionally, Beltane (30 April) is the Sabbat for Love Magick (Magick with a ‘k’ is used by practitioners to differentiate it from stage magic tricks) but the Mandala spell is not a normal love spell; It’s a spell to help you prepare for True Love and establish an energetic bond between you and your unknown future Soul Mate lover, rather than trying to bind a known lover to you. It also allows you to call on the help of your ancestors for subtle intuitive guidance about the characteristics to be looking out for.
You will need:
- A Tarot deck to divine the potential of your magick
- A candle for honouring your ancestors and ask for their guidance/blessing
- An animal oracle (or you can use a FREE online Animal Oracle) to decide the theme of the Mandala
- A print-out of the mandala of your choice
- Colouring pens
Before you begin, make sure that you have a couple of hours to yourself when you won’t be disturbed. Light some incense and play soft music if you think this will help you relax and be creative. Continue reading
He may look like he is genuinely looking for love and commitment but he isn’t because he is hankering after his ex!
In these days of Online Dating it’s a bit too easy for people to quickly go on the Internet to find the next one before they are over their ex. The people who do this fall into one of two different categories:
a) the ones who don’t realise they are not over their ex
b) the ones who know for a fact they are not but won’t hesitate to use another person to try to get over their ex or just distract themselves from the pain
You need to watch out for both kinds because involvement with either type usually ends in tears. Yes, there are exceptions to the rule but here is why it’s not worth taking a gamble: Continue reading
Good Guy or Player? He won’t tell you if he’s a Bad Boy but the cards will!
Ladies, instead of complaining about there being so few good men left, use the Tarot to help you find the few remaining ones! This Tarot spread sorts the men from the boys, the good from the bad and the emotionally intelligent from the clueless. The latter being the ones who know neither themselves nor what they want from life but operate at an opportunistic level and don’t care much about potential collateral damage.
Step 1 – Decide which significator to use. The significator is chosen from among the 16 Court Cards in the Minor Arcana. To make it easy for you, I have compiled a list you can use based on his Zodiac sign. Continue reading
The Tarot is a set of 78 Keys for unlocking any blocks to perfect alignment with your Higher Self. In relationship readings, the goal should always be find the simplest solution (hint: the ego loves to complicate things) – this is the true essence of divination and in a nutshell how it differs from fortune-telling which is not concerned with spiritual laws, only with personal gain. Divination helps you align with the truth of your Higher Self and to live with integrity and this is how I choose to use the Tarot.
This is why the question you ask of the Tarot is paramount because not all questions can help you align with your Higher Self. Asking, ‘How can I make sure my lover stays faithful to me while my husband keeps supporting me financially?‘ (and many variations of this question) is quite possibly the perfect example of a question that simply cannot align you with the Truth. It is also, sadly, a question I get asked very often and the main reason why I have chosen to screen questions from prospective clients before I agree reading on them. Continue reading

The Sun never says to the Earth,”You owe me.”Look
With a love like that,
It lights the whole sky.”
Did you know that getting a Tarot reading can create problems and trip your relationship if you ask the wrong questions. Most people ask questions like these:
- Is it safe for me to love him/her?
- Does he really love me?
- Will he commit?
- Will he make me truly happy?
- Will it last?
- When will he propose? Continue reading
The more of an emotional connection you have with the Tarot cards, the better a reader you will be. The emotional connection with the cards is even more important when you read on love and romance, because in these types of readings, each of the 78 cards becomes a key which unlocks hidden emotional truths. Because of the wide variety of decks out there these days, different decks will have unique emotional overtones, so this exercise is worth doing with each and every one of your working decks.
