I’m adding some separate pages that will go into different topics in depth
Magical properties of Essential oils
Magical properties of healing crystals
Reiki and energy work
Wheel of the Year
I also am closing all niche sites down except Diymommy18.com. I’m also redoing that site.
If you have any topics of interest you would like to see covered either in a blog or a page separate from the blog, please don’t hesitate to let me know.
As long as I can remember, I walked off the normal path. I was always seen as different, strange, and could never fit in when I was a child. I tried wearing the same clothes, listening to the same music, talking with the same slang (slang always made my head hurt) and no matter what I tried, I never could succeed at fitting in.
I have the same issue now that my oldest is in school. I have tried to come up with things to say to start conversations with parents who seem a good ten years older than I am. I have tried to wrack my astrology and tarot obsessed brain to figure out how to start an appropriate, not new-age conversation and my brain fails. I feel like if I mention Bethcessories, I’ll come off as being pushy like a sales rep at a kiosk at the mall. If I mention writing, I’ll be seen as trying to self promote myself too much and if I talk about my tarot and astrology business, I’ll be seen, once again as too much self promotion. It feels like a very fine line.
There also seems to be a bit of a difference between moms who work from home, stay at home or work out of the home so besides the age difference, it feels like I don’t fully fit in with either of the main groups. It may all be in my head, but I’ve attended one or two PTO meetings and only spoke with a few people in the entire time I was there- one was my daughter’s teacher. My daughter was in therapy with one class mate (different therapists but we went at the same time) and I would try to get to know their mom, then I heard her talking to one of the therapists about a church group and it hit me- church groups seem to be how different parents get to know each other. That night, I went on facebook and found one lone Pagan parenting group and another group for all pagans in my state, so I know we exist.
I have another that focuses on gluten/dairy free recipes and normal kid crafts that can be found here. This site is going to be 100% focused on pagan parenting, history, divination and all things New Age. I will post kid friendly ritual and spell ideas you can get kids involved in and around each holiday, I’ll post ways for your child to celebrate.

At this time, I have decided to remain focused on primarily decorative pillows and candles/wax melts but I have some plans I’m already about to start for halloween.
This weekend- Monday, I’m offering 10 percent off all physical items as well as readings. I also have 3 copies of the book ready to mail out and right now, with a book purchase, you get a free tarot reading.
My personal life has been extremely busy and stressful. I’ll hopfully be getting some exciting and good news soon and if it’s positive, I’ll mention it on here but right now I’m full of nervous energy.
I’m currently working on the actual book to go along with the workbook I just released.
I’ve also gone with some new ideas and decided on the full series I’ll be trying to write by the end of next year. There will be at least 3 books and 3 workbooks with potentially 3 more books and workbooks after. (but not by next year)
I’ve started a new page on Facebook dedicated to the series and education of dream interpretation, astrology (natal chart) and divination.
You can find it here.
Part of the page as well as the Twitter I’m about to start is promotion and updating about the books but mostly it’s sharing facts about the subjects listed above.
It is also going to be lining up with my new site, Astromommy, which is currently under construction.
I’m also working out some plans for DIYmommy and they will be posted when they’re finalized.
Astrology and Divination Newsletter
By the end of this weekend, I’m planning on having my first newsletter ready to send out.
This will be a once monthly letter, within the first week of the month. I refuse to spam but I will send out random updates occasionally but the updates will never be more than one to two extra a month.
Guided Dream Journal
I’m almost finished with my dream analysis journal. There will be a dictionary that will go with it, but that will be later this year.
When I get it published, I’ll be posting it on here. It will be 15 and will contain information as well as a journal to record your dreams.
I’m putting the finishing touches to cleaning up the look of my shop, Bethcessories It’s been up and running but I am going to be holding a special sale to celebrate the official grand opening when I have more stuff.
Bethcessories Design is my personal brand. I create every item myself. I also offer dream interpretations, tarot chats, tarot readings, rune/iching readings and Astrological charts, as well as spell SUPPLY kits.
I’m currently working on some Zodiac coloured decorations, and I’m hoping within the year to add curtains.
You can see my reviews here.
I’m going to put the sign up on here this month and it’s going to start next month.
It’s going to be about Astrology, numerology, tarot and other divination methods as well as any Wiccan/Pagan holidays coming up and moon phases
It will be just one time a month, I’m hoping to get the sign up form up soon.
I’ll be posting more regularly again as it gets further into the year.
About 2-3 weeks ago, I got slammed on Etsy while slammed with my former day job. Since then, I finished all the orders on Etsy and I’m going into 2019 un-traditionally employed. I have a lot of plans for 2019 and on.
I’m in the middle of shutting 1 Etsy shop down and adding everything back into my main shop. My goal is to have over 200 items listed by 2020.
I’m also going to be kicking off the opening of this shop on here, it’s usable but my grand opening ended up going on at the same time as a huge event at my former day job- so it didn’t work out. I’ll be doing that, maybe when I release my next project.
I’m currently working on a guided dream journal that I’ll be releasing hopefully mid- to late January or Feburary. It will be a journal to record dreams with some tips on what details to remember.
I also have planned-
A pocket guide to the tarot
A pocket guide to Astrology (understanding the natal charts)
A guide to understanding dreams
I also have several fiction pieces I’m working on that I’ll be publishing.
Of course, not all these will be finished this year, but some will be.
I’m looking forward to taking my writing into 2019
Happy New Year to everyone. 🙂
