My name is Josephine, although most people know me as Jo. I have over 20 years experience in many areas of natural magic including tarot, gentle healing spells, the pagan path, astrology and herbs. (Approved certificates in Wicca, tarot, astrology and flower remedies). Herbs have always been the one great love and passion of mine, growing many of my own to use. My interest in herbs then led me naturally into tarot, Wicca, spells, astrology etc.
I will just say to anybody reading this that I do not work with negative, dark or bad energies and forces.
All the topics on this site are things I have learnt and picked up over the years, adapting here and there to suit my needs. Many I have used and trusted, and with excellent results. Both traditional and other more cultural/universal ways and ideas. Therefore my approach or methods may or may not be similar to other sources but they all have a kind of thread that leads you in the same direction eventually. In the end it is all about what feels right for you and this is what feels right and comfortable for me and works well.
For me personally, "natural magic" is about healing the whole (holistic) ourselves, others and our earth. By gently using our natural energies and resources, which are free to everybody: Moon phases, timing, sun signs, crystals colours and herbs. Calling upon mystical, spiritual sources: Goddesses, Angels and Animal guides. Turning negative energy into positive energy. But taking no more than we need from our earth. It doesn't have to be 100% accurate. But let it be 100% pure and from the heart. (And harm none) Always respectful, respectful to you, other people, our earth and any deities you may call upon for help and or protection. If anybody has a suggestion or question or anything they would like to share, please do, feel free. It's nice to hear what other people have to say, different views and perspectives are always welcome.
I chose the name Jana because this was the name of one of my favourite cats. A beautiful and delicately marked tonkinese. Also because Jana is an ancient Roman Goddess, some describe her as a moon Goddess or a Goddess and protector of the woods, animals and all nature. Her month is January: She is the Goddess of spiritual doorways, of veiled secrets, mysteries and new beginnings. Also of the past and changes. Looking both, back and forward in time. A Goddess of intuition, sensitivity, perception, prediction and magic. She reminds me of the High Priestess in tarot. As a moon Goddess, her colours are silver, white and all misty hues. Her consort is better known as Janus.
