✨Is exclusivity necessary or helpful?✨ I notice that sometimes people are rude or think they are better than others, they let fame and Instagram followers get to their head. I’ve always been annoyed by this and want to make it known that I won’t feed into the “exclusivity” narrative. I follow most of my clients and pages of people whom I interact with a lot. I follow people I meet at bars and IRL events. I support high profile and beginner IG profiles the same. That’s why you see me following a large amount of pages and I’m not one of those witches who follows 0 or only verified accounts. I support business pages no matter how small. I consider myself humble. It’s possible to be both popular and NICE and accepting of others. I just don’t like sour attitudes or people who look up to those who treat others like they are beneath them. There are some rude, cocky people on here. Verified or not, hundreds of thousands of followers or not, we are all beautiful and magical humxns. IG algorithms are really hard to crack. Ones worth and skill is not determined by followers. I would be nowhere without my supporters. Each and every one of you is special to me. I try to respond when I can. I have a lot of work to do because I run my entire platform, and I have to prioritize my spirits, family and spiritual well-being above everything. That being said, my DM is open but I don’t have time to respond to all and I kindly request you use email for professional communication. If you ever DM me and get upset I don’t answer, I don’t hold myself accountable for communication on there because it is more of a fun thing to me than business related. I like interacting when I get the chance and when y’all respond to my IG stories. I like commenting back to EVERYONE when it’s not too taxing. Please know I love you, and please know one of my boundaries is that I never answer questions you can google or questions you can find the answers to in my MANY videos. I don’t answer personal questions unless you book me for a reading. I try to answer via comments in my most recent posts and don’t check old ones that often! Thank you all for respecting me and. Stay humble folks.

The zodiac sign of Gemini is ruled by the planet Mercury and its symbol is the twins.

The duality aspect of Gemini is very important! It gives Gemini extrasensory perception and a great capacity to see past the mundane. Gemini is also creative, spiritual, and intelligent! 

Some describe Gemini as having a “nervous” energy, so this ritual is designed to help you wind down from those effects and make space for reflection!  

The New Moon (also called the dark moon) is a great time to reflect on the truth and the unpleasant aspects of our lives and to make space to FEEL. By acknowledging the more negative aspects of our lives, we can live more authentically and have less psychic blockages! 

This ritual is inspired by the idea of safe spaces. Secrets are not always a bad thing, and having a place JUST to yourself for doing magical work is important. For this ritual pick a place that is only known to you. Ideally a place outdoors where you can’t be easily seen. You should visit this space monthly on the dark moon about two hours before twilight and stay until it gets dark. 

For this ritual you will need…

Featured image Amenti Oracle: Feather Heart Deck and Guidebook
  • Tarot or Oracle Cards, or divination method of choice that can provide answers
  • Incense or Smudge Wand 
  • Open Space, ideally outdoors 
  • A musical instrument such as a singing bowl, flute, drum or a speaker to play meditation music 


  1. Bless the space with the smoke of your choice, make sure to send smoke to each of the four directions. 
  2. Play your musical instrument or music on your speaker for 10 minutes. You can lightly sway and dance, focusing on the soothing sounds to calm your mind or sit still and focus on meditating. (you can continue to play music intuitively while you do the rest of this ritual) 
  1. Say this affirmation to bless the space 

I come here with faith and peace.

I CAN and vow to release all that is harming me. 

I firmly declare this my safe place. 

May no evil, nor judgment, nor intrusive energy enter my space. 

  1. Stomp your feet three times to scare away unwanted energy. 
  2. Perform an in-depth tarot reading, oracle reading to help you with healing, clarity, and releasing stress and low vibrational energy. 

Sample questions 

What is keeping me from being an authentic version of myself? 

Where am I failing in life? 

What area of self-improvement do I need to focus on? 

What can I do to overcome nervousness or anxiety? 

What patterns can I overcome? 

What areas of life am I being stubborn in? 

Where am I being two-faced or unfair? 

How can I give more love? 

Where does my self-love stand right now? 

Where can I apologize to others, to make things right? 

  1. Close the safe space by saying the following affirmation and making a promise to return next time with a different ritual 

 I have seen my truth. 

My pain and suffering can now be soothed.
I leave these secrets here.

I promise to be honest, even to the fears. 

Spirits thank you for helping me so soon. 

I promise to return next time on the dark moon. 

  1. Stomp your feet three times and visualize the space becoming invisible and untouchable to others 

This is now your permanent safe space and you can come here every dark moon to perform your rituals without shame.
