I started keeping journals when I was about 13 when a relative gifted me Anne Frank’s Diary. When in college I moved onto art journals upon the discovery of Dan Elden’s journals. I now manage this lifestyle blog as a sort of online diary of everything.
These journals were made during my mid-late 20’s. Some of the pages were quite dark as I was struggling quite a bit with anxiety and depression from childhood trauma and abuse from a previous partnership.
I now keep nature journals but do plan on making more collages for my up coming poetry book AND I am considering creating a class on skill share?

The reason why this is late is because, I have been writing articles for wellness sites and creating new content for this blog. Before I talk more about this Capricorn moon, you may ask why I call myself a hedgewitch?

Just like any passion you are dedicated to can be a form of “yoga”, anyone “wise” in their subject area: It’s “witchery”.

Saturn tests us and will push us to our limits. Saturn represents authority, discipline, hard work, labour and commitment. It’s also about guilt, resistance and delay. These are all attributes that a lot of Capricorns struggle with- they are usually very smartly dressed (usually like wearing business suits), very intelligent and intellectual, disciplined and believe in the realistic law and order of things. But Capricorns are also very emotional too, once pushed over their limit of duty and order they cry silent tears and can become real grumpy goats (A lot of Capricorns can struggle to unchain their primal side to let it frolic in the wild for a bit).
