#introduction for another witch fleeing tumblr
I'm Smokie, a 30yr old practitioner from Western Canada. I'm a nerd for research and collect antique, rare and small print occult books.
My practice is constantly evolving, but these days I'm primarily focused on divination, shadow work, and hedge magic.
I write code for my day job. I live with three cats, three royal pythons, and a library with a personality. When I have free time, I like to draw things. Maybe we can be friends.
So about a month ago I asked you guys to light a candle for me so I could get out of my toxic job and get a role at a really progressive studio. I went on Holidays after. The day I came back, my old job let me go with severance. A week later, I got the job I wanted. So not only did I get that job, but I didn’t have to spend another single day at the old terrible job. So thank you. Thank you. I am so grateful.

Three people at my office have just had babies or are about to pop any day. All anyone talks right now is children. I’ve held some newborns and been totally overcome with hormones. I’m dreaming about adopting children secretly and hiding them from my spouse.
We can’t have children biologically and have agreed NOT to have children, but now I’m starting to wish I could and I can’t tell if that’s just because I see them daily now or if I should be worried. 😑
I'm going to start pulling a card for the energy of the week!
This week I used the Radiant Cosmos Oracle by @lyrium
Enthusiasm, passion, intensity
This is the week to follow your passions! Do what makes you feel good and let your joy spill over into other areas of your life!
Daily Tarot draw, Ostara Tarot
Ace of Wands
This card symbolizes action and inspiration. Go full-out for what you want. Listen to your instincts and follow your intuition. The time for action is now. What’s important right now is the initial surge of passion and energy.
What a timely and encouraging draw. Thanks Tarot 🙏
Work +, “pray” for me
I just applied for a job I really want at a trans-friendly company where the CEO is non-binary. That means it’d be my first job ever where i’d be comfortable expressing my gender identity. They make educational software for doctors, it’s completely remote, and it would allow me to move home to be near my family again. I want it so incredibly bad, I just keep refreshing my inbox.
I’m overqualified. But I still want it. Please. 😬🤞
Light a candle for me if you have the 🥄
