Pretty much recaps how I felt while watching The Name of The Doctor. This scene broke my heart.
I think this may be in the running for one of my top 3 episodes of the show since the reboot.
Epic dreams of late: this morning I was involved in an 8 day ultra-marathon version of an obstacle course something like Tough Mudder that seems to have some magical/mystical components. Yesterday morning I dreamt I was a slayer slaying zompires* and other assorted demons and nasties at a luxury cottage/chalet.
So basically, lots of running, all the running and jumping and back flipping and physical strength that I actually don’t have. My brain works in weird ways.

I was feeling really stressed out today (mostly from running all over the city for two meetings and other work related things). I had some time to kill before a burlesque costume fabric buying expedition with victorally (which was quite lovely, she’s kind of the best) and I bought myself some new crystals friends to try to calm my nerves.
The big one is Fluorite, the light green is Atlantisite and the other (my new favourite precious) is Lavender/Tanzine aura quartz.
I already cleansed them but I’m going to let them charge under the light of the Scorpio full moon tonight. Seems very appropriate for me, seeing as it’s my own moon sign.
C.A. Brook’s astrology forecast for today really resonated with me:
THURSDAY APRIL 25
MOON in LIBRA / SCORPIO
Moon enters Scorpio 3:25 am (PDT)
Full Moon Lunar Eclipse 5 Scorpio 12:57 pm (PDT)
In early morning the Moon leaves Libra and dives to the depths of the psyche as it enters the mysterious sign of Scorpio. In a very real way, the mysteries and spirit are calling to us. We yearn for deeper understanding and more meaningful connections – those that can only be found in inner sanctuaries away from the daily distractions of our lives. If I’m sounding intense it must be the influence of Scorpio!
In early afternoon the Full Moon in Scorpio brings with it a Lunar Eclipse – that event when the Earth stands between the Moon and Sun casting its shadow and in effect blocking the light of the Sun from reaching the face of the Moon. This disruption of electromagnetic energy exchanges has a similar corollary astrologically. Lunar Eclipses are usually markers of endings and culminations. Sometimes these are natural and expected but many times not. Either way it is a clear harbinger of changes to come – endings and new beginnings.
Thinking Mercury seems a bit confused as well as it mixes it up with nebulous Neptune. Thinking and conversations may not be clear, but are bound to be imaginative.
Daily Muse: “There’s a trick to the ‘graceful exit.’ It begins with the vision to recognize when a job, a life stage, or a relationship is over — and let it go. It means leaving what’s over without denying its validity or its past importance to our lives. It involves a sense of future, a belief that every exit line is an entry, that we are moving up, rather than out.” -Ellen Goodman

(A digital illustration shows the ancient Plutonium, celebrated as the portal to the underworld in Greco-Roman mythology.)
A “gate to hell” has emerged from ruins in southwestern Turkey, Italian archaeologists have announced.
Known as Pluto’s Gate — Ploutonion in Greek, Plutonium in Latin — the cave was celebrated as the portal to the underworld in Greco-Roman mythology and tradition.
Historic sources located the site in the ancient Phrygian city of Hierapolis, now called Pamukkale, and described the opening as filled with lethal mephitic vapors.
“This space is full of a vapor so misty and dense that one can scarcely see the ground. Any animal that passes inside meets instant death,” the Greek geographer Strabo (64/63 BC — about 24 AD) wrote.
“I threw in sparrows and they immediately breathed their last and fell,” he added.
Announced this month at a conference on Italian archaeology in Istanbul, Turkey, the finding was made by a team led by Francesco D’Andria, professor of classic archaeology at the University of Salento.

Animal cruelty aside (which I don’t want to make light of at all - you all know how I feel about sparrows), this is really exciting news and an incredible find. I want to go see it so badly!
Hello my darlings,
I just started a new Twitter account for my magical workings and this persona (to keep it somewhat separate from my other accounts).
Please reply or reblog with you Twitter handle if you are a witch, pagan, alchemist, rootworker, magician or otherwise so magically inclined.
Hope you had a lovely weekend!
