Style AND Psychics: Was this Summer’s Gucci Campaign Prophesied by the Hollywood Witch via TMG?

Years after launching my own little “Psychics and Style” blog – STYLE COVEN (www.stylecoven.com) Gucci is running a gorgeous pictorial campaign using just those touch points and the spokeswoman is my fave Hitchcock Blonde – Tippi Hedren. Coincidentally … or maybe not … yours truly did a reading for her years ago as I was developing my own groove and combining psychics and style at a luxury suite for the Oscars hosted by TMG. Today, I’m a bona fide trendsetter thanks to Ruben Diaz.  LOL

As I wrote YEARS ago …

“After 15 years as a hack and a flack in fashion and entertainment I decided to combine my 25 years of experience as a psychic, clairvoyant and healer with my fascination with pop culture and public relations.”

Since this year’s Awards Season dawn during so many retrograde planets, perhaps they will ask me back. I know it took years but here is our original concept executed elegantly in a Gucci campaign.

Full Moon in Sagittarius – Insights into Action by Starr Ann Ravenhawk – Witchfest USA

We are proud to promote Witchfest USA: A Pagan Street Faire every year. As we approach opening day, Starr Ann Ravenhawk of Charmed by Starr has some helpful insights for today’s auspicious SAGITTARIUS Full MOON. Seen as the mystic Flower Moon, marking the sixth full moon of the year, this last full Moon before the 7th annual Witchfest heralds in an exciting line-up. Many consider this occasion to have an impact on the cosmic star signs – but what does the Flower Moon mean for you?

Expanding your knowledge and ability to communicate in a positive way. Generosity, openness, optimism and the desire to give advice and share experiences. This is another fiery sign and is good for gardening. Onions, leeks and garlic great for planting now and considered to be some of the strongest plants for dealing with the banishment of illness and disease, as well as other undesirables that may be floating around your home. Good time to banish outmoded or stagnant thoughts.

Laughter, along with emotional or mental stimulation, is the best type of banishment when the Moon is in Sagittarius. For the Sagittarius sign are characteristic enthusiasm, frankness, philosophy, tendency for generalization, idealism, interest for the unknown, for other cultures and worlds. When the Moon resides in Sagittarius sign, we all subconsciously become Sagittarius. Optimism, vitality, generosity, good intention, striving for protection intensify, as well as desire for philosophy, expansion of horizon or just a desire for a walk somewhere. These days are favorable for studying, work, teaching, and also expansion of the area of interest, for all, that is connected with distant travel and foreign countries.

“Whatever it is that needs doing – whatever it is you’ve been avoiding – it’s time to take responsibility.”

grass-546794_1280
Like the flowers, it is time for us to blossom, to grow day by day …

  • “Make a plan to pay up, or you may have to face the consequences of your inaction.”
  • “Compromise will be key — and so will good listening skills, because so much talk is going to be going on.
  • “People will be making announcements, secrets will be revealed, and some gossip might be exposed.
  • “While Mercury’s in this sign, it will help boost your mental acuity and communication skills, and while your partners are going to have plenty to get off their chest, so will you.
  • “Make sure you both hear each other out today — try not to interrupt.”

This Full Moon is applying a wide square to Neptune in Pisces.

This can stimulate confusion which can also be between our emotional needs and ego needs, or between ourselves and others. It some cases it can debilitate actions, direction, drive, as well as amplify the already potentially scattered energy of the signs involved in this Full Moon. Neptune can also trigger escapism, avoidance, clumsiness, and flaky energy. If you have to do any tasks that are important for you to be mentally attentive, you may need to put extra effort in doing so to avoid problems. This period can be similar to Mercury Retrograde.

full-moon-2055469_1280
Both the Full Moon in Sagittarius and the Neptune configurations work best when we consider the big picture, get out of our heads (when appropriate), overcome our fears, flow with challenges, and trust our intuition/feelings.

Things To Consider During This Period:
What is the big picture for you and what do you need to take into consideration while addressing the details of your life? How can you expand and broaden your horizons to help you build the life you want? What actions can you take to help you with your spiritual growth? What part of your life is calling for transformation? Do you need to be more adaptable/fluid while being less rigid in your routine?

Have you been wanting to make some big changes over the last few weeks to liberate you from a situation? Or has anything been occurring in your life over the last month to help to facilitate that process? If so, then this Full Moon may be a period to really take that into consideration by listening to your feelings and get out of your head about what could be holding you back.

These are just some examples of what to consider at this time. If you wish to do any sort of intentional release connected to what comes up, it is best to do so anytime over the two weeks following this Full Moon when it is waning. If you are into health and detoxification, this waning period can also be a good time to initiate any type of liver cleanse or protocol.

Angels in the house of Sagittarius control the four elements — Earth, Air, Fire and Water —- as well as regulate their use for various purposes. They are responsible for the protection of humankind when we migrate from country to country. The Angels are Vhnori and Saritaiel.

In a miraculous instance of Starr’s colliding … Angel Oasis’  Morgana Starr gave us a conjuration this morning in support of a sister Starr from her book “Angel Whispers” from Barnes and Noble.

ANGEL MAGIC

Descended from Fire Goddesses of old

You know of deep mysteries untold

Only take some time to look within

Then your understanding will begin

Out of the darkness you have come

So spread your wings and have some fun

Winging your flight through the cool air

Sprinkling Angel magic from hands so fair

Never forget who you truly are

Honor the road you have taken so far

The joy you have given out so free

Is spread to others, you will see

The music that is deep inside

Is open now and cannot hide

Drifting as wind o’er the plains

To erase all anguish and all pain

Bring out passion from your inner self

Angels Flurry…Angels Flight

Wings aflutter with delight

Joy and happiness all around

Hearts opened, love abounds.

Angels Whispering in my ears

Telling me to leave my fears

Now I can sing

Of angel’s magic wings

There is beauty all around

It is waiting to be found

If you look with angel’s eyes

You see what none can deny

Who you are and your heart of love

What angels see from up above

So for today and every day … I embrace two soul sisters, Starr and Morgana … who both consistently bring Starr’s to my eyes and to my heart … because the Hollywood Witch flourishes when she is surrounded by STARR MAGICK! And on this Full Moon Day two Starr’s collided and the result was a supernova.

Will.i.am Awards ‘Superstar’ Entrepreneurs in Final of $1M Chivas Competition

Posted in Angels, celebrities, mariebargas, Philanthropy, Pop Culture, Spirituality with tags , , , , on May 25, 2018 by Marie Bargas

Chivas-Venture-will-i-am-SelfieThe United Kingdom’s Change Please is Announced as Winner of the Chivas Venture 2018 at TNW Conference in Amsterdam.

“As the Saturn Retrograde continues it slow march til the beginning of September, actions supporting positive change and empowerment will be rewarded in the short run AND in the long run. With respect to will.i.am my prediction is that the association with this philanthropic venture will balance whatever Saturn, the bringer of Karma, hurls at him this Summer.  MARIE BARGAS

Tech entrepreneur and creative innovator will.i.am was in Amsterdam tonight to help select and crown the winner of the Chivas Venture 2018 – Chivas Regal’s global competition that gives away $1 million in no-strings funding every year to the world’s most promising social startups. From 27 finalists, U.K. enterprise Change Please walked away with the greatest amount of funding, receiving $350,000following a live pitch at Europe’s leading tech festival, TNW Conference, in front of thousands of international tech enthusiasts, investors and entrepreneurs.

Change Please empowers the homeless community by training them to be baristas. The London-based startup takes the homeless off the streets and ensures they find housing within 10 days – as well as providing bank accounts and jobs paying the London Living Wage. Their coffee, served in environmentally-friendly cups, is responsibly sourced from farms that support local communities in need.

Reacting to his win, Founder of Change Please, Cemal Ezel, said:

I’m so happy  I think I’m still in shock. It’s been a hard and long journey, but to have made 26 incredible new friends from all over the world  that’s been the real highlight for me. The last four months have been amazing; I just want to give a huge thanks to Chivas.

The Global Final – hosted by BAFTA winning actor, writer, director and television presenter, Richard Ayoade – was the culmination of the fourth year of the Chivas Venture. This year’s competition attracted 2,600 entries from across the world, which were whittled down to 27 finalists all competing for a share of Chivas Regal’s $1 million fund. The judging panel – which comprised will.i.am, Founder & CEO, I.AM.PLUS; Alexandre Ricard, Chairman and CEO of Pernod Ricard – parent company of Chivas RegalSheila Herrling, Senior Fellow at The Beeck Center for Social Impact + Innovation; and Kresse Wesling MBE, Co-Founder and Director of sustainable luxury brand Elvis & Kresse – assessed each startup based on their ability to create sustainable change through a viable business model and potential to scale.

The four other finalists to receive significant funding were: Mestic from the Netherlands ($200,000) – which converts cow manure waste into biotextiles, bioplastics and biopaper; Spain’s BraiBook ($100,000) – creator of the first Braille eReader; The Picha Project from Malaysia($50,000), which supports marginalised communities through a sustainable food catering and delivery business; and change: WATER Labs from the USA($50,000) – which has developed low-cost, waterless toilets for non-sewered households and communities around the world.

A People’s Choice Award was also determined live on the night by the studio audience and over 420,000 viewers watching via the live stream – with will.i.am announcing that the public had decided to award an additional $50,000 of funding to Eric Sicart from BraiBook.

Reacting on the night, judge will.i.am said:

Thanks to the Chivas Venture were recognising a new wave of entrepreneurs that just get it. The superstars of tomorrow are founders of companies like these that are solving the worlds problems. I thank Chivas for lifting up and shining a light on social startups who are changing the world for the better.

Pernod Ricard Chairman and CEO Alexandre Ricard added:

The Chivas Venture is an initiative I am personally very proud of. More than just a competition, it brings together entrepreneurs and innovators who are having a real impact on the world, and changing the way we do business. We have given away $3 million of funding since the competition first started, and our finalists are now enriching over 1 million lives in over 40 countries across 6 continents. Thats not a bad return on investment.

Now in its fourth year, the Chivas Venture has received over 8,000 applications to date. Since the competition began in 2014, Chivas-supported startups have cut over 60 million tonnes of CO2, recycled 13,000 tonnes of waste and saved over 8 million trees and 1 million honeybee colonies. 75,000 days of education have been funded for women and girls, 24 million litres of clean drinking water have been provided, and 23,000 households now have safe energy.

Chivas believes that generosity and success go hand in hand – a belief that was inspired by founding brothers and entrepreneurs, James and John Chivas, who shared their success with the local community as their business grew. Today, through the Chivas Venture, Chivas champions likeminded entrepreneurs who want to succeed while changing the world for the better; social enterprises are invited to apply for the chance to win a share of $1 million in funding and resources as entries for the Chivas Venture 2019 open in September 2018.

When Saturn Retrograde Destroys Your Haters

Posted in Astrology, Pagan, Paranormal, Pop Culture, PsychicProtection, SaturnRetrograde, Spirituality with tags , , , , on May 12, 2018 by Marie Bargas

 

 

cyber-bullying-122156_960_720Last night I discovered, quite accidentally, that a dedicated hater/stalker of mine got exactly what she deserved. After being attacked by her … for years … it appears that she has been exposed via Google Search … because of her consistent bullying and fraudulent behavior. Let me remind everyone … I am NO SEO genius. No one can blame me for this one.  In fact she has made it a point through the years to publicize that I could not possibly be that technologically savvy.  It’s funny, but she is the most vocal witness to the fact that I COULD NOT have done this to her. It would require the skills that she has repeatedly said that I lack.  I think I even have a screenshot of her saying that I’m stupid. By her own efforts and in her own words … IT COULD NOT POSSIBLY BE MY FAULT.

Let’s get this straight, I am only one of many of her victims. She is noticeably addicted to the power she feels that she gets from being abusive.  So, let’s look at this from the occult perspective … shall we? Saturn, the planet of Karma, has been retrograde since April and will be until September 6th, 2018. In many spiritual and occult traditions Saturn is the planet of Karma. And in this particular case, looks like Shani and Karma had a field day at her expense.

What is interesting to me is that since I am her more known victims, it appears that my affliction has come to light. Well, blame that on Google. She wanted to be famed for trashing me. She got her wish. She has attacked my reputation for years and gloated over it publicly and privately … online … offline … and every which way but loose. This could be the by product of HER OWN SEO EFFORTS. OUCH … I don’t know if she could ever repay me for the years that I’ve suffered mental, emotional and financial distress because of her antics. I’ve kept copious records. It’s been a horrific ride to say the least. I have done all I could to DEFEND myself and ultimately had to let things be and allow the court system to do what it could to protect me and the other folks that she has harassed. Honestly, she has been the last thing on my mind for quite some time. But yesterday … I discovered that Karma is real and the movements of the planets do effect our daily lives. I am blown away by such an incredible cosmic affirmation.

space-54999_960_720

Meanwhile, I am comforted by the knowledge that Saturn or Shani (Hindu) is a formidable force that cannot be easily overthrown or placated. And Karma cannot be fooled or beguiled. While some would think that this is an incredible victory for me, I must be truthful and say it is in fact a RESCUE, because the planetary forces have done what so many ordinary human beings could not. And believe me, she has trampled on the hearts and minds of MANY PEOPLE since she is empowered and entertained by causing people DISTRESS and LOSS. I am humbled and grateful. I am transformed from being a victim to a witness.

Shani-Dev-1

Today, as I light a traditional mustard oil lamp in supplication and gratitude to SHANI, I am in AWE.

Shani’s gravitational power is more than that of the Earth’s. Therefore, when we think good or bad thoughts and make plans, they reach Shani by the strength of his power. In astrological terms, the bad influence is considered as unlucky. But the result of good deeds will be good. Therefore, we must understand God Shani as a friend and not as foe. And for bad deeds, he is Sade Saathi, disaster and an enemy.

 

The Hanuman Mantra Cure for the Saturn Retrograde starting on April 17, 2018

Hanuman1.gif

According to legend, the cheeky Hindu Monkey God, Hanuman, and the planet Saturn, otherwise known as Shani Dev, have a very interesting relationship.

  1. Both Gods are connected to Lord Shiva, the Merciful Destroyer. Hanuman is said to be the avatar of Shiva. Shani Dev or Saturn is a devotee.
  2. Hanuman was born on Saturday or Saturn’s Day.
  3. Saturn/Shani is connected to the element of fire. Hanuman is connected to the element of air. Air feeds fire.
  4. In exchange for saving Saturn/Shani from the demon Ravanna’s prison, Saturn/Shani agreed that Hanuman or his followers would not suffer in-auspiciousness.

The mantra is traditionally chanted 108 times either with or without a mala (rosary) on a Saturday. Traditional offerings are jasmine oil or flowers, vermilion and red sandalwood. During Saturn Retrograde I chant the mantra at least on Saturday AND Tuesay, or every day just to make sure.

Breaking a Spell with Sound: Tuning Forks

Posted in exorcism, Ghosts, Holistic Healing, Pagan, Paranormal, PsychicProtection, Spirituality, thehollywoodwitch, witchcraft with tags , , , , on April 10, 2018 by Marie Bargas

tuning-fork-1906404_960_720

 

Today a student asked me what I use to break spells quickly. My simple answer is and always will be – TUNING FORKS! Think about it … Most magick per se is thought fueled by INTENT in order to create manifestation. The combination creates a specific vibration. In order to “break” those kinds of “spells” simply change the vibration! I like tuning forks because they give off powerful vibrations and they can be placed on specific parts of the body in order to have a deeps impact. I’ve used high vibration tuning forks to cleanse a vibe and low vibration tuning forks to “ground.”

26 Years Later… A Psychic Speaks Out on Rape Culture

Posted in Angels, Holistic Healing, Paranormal, Pop Culture, sex, Spirituality, Writing with tags , , on November 7, 2017 by tonysokol

By Vanessa Renee Hogle

Forward by Marie Bargas:

In the days following the aftermath of the #metoo campaign many celebrities have come out and told their stories of rape and sexual abuse. It has been a communal exorcism of sorts and now very brave psychic has come out to tell the paranormal community her own story.  I would like to congratulate Vanessa Hogle on her courage and veracity. I am honored to be your colleague and your friend. Thank for inspiring hope at a turning in history. You are loved and remembered.

Sincerely,  Marie

the-offence-2048413_640

There has been a lot of talk lately about victim shaming. So many innuendos and outright cruel statements posted on social media regarding victims of abuse, rape, chronic illness and the like that it makes one’s head spin. I decided it was time to come clean. To tell my story in hopes that it will help people understand how hurtful so many of these statements are.

You see, I was raped. Many years ago, when I was 19 years old, I was violated by someone I knew very well. We had been a couple, for quite some time, but had split up due to personal issues. I had reason to fear for my safety and spent time hiding out at friends’ houses. Hopping from one to the other, never staying in the same place very long. This went on for months before I finally felt like he had given up trying to find me. I let my guard down. I stayed too long, in one particular place, and he found me.

shame-2087878_64026 years ago he found out where I was staying, convinced my friend he only wanted to talk to me, and watched them walk out the door. They had no idea what his plans were. No one could have known, not even me, what he planned to do. He was that charming. I’m not even sure anyone believed me when I had warned them of my fears previously. It didn’t matter any way. From the time they walked out the door my fate was sealed … only I didn’t know it because I was asleep in the back bedroom. I was not aware of what had happened till I woke up to him on top of me. Raping me. Hand over my mouth to silence my screams. A foot taller than me and 70 lbs heavier. I never stood a chance. When he was finished he walked into the bathroom, grabbed a towel, threw it in my face and said, “now we’re done”, grabbed his clothes and walked out.

I remember sitting there, numb, not really sure what to do. At this time in my life, I was estranged from my family … I had no one. He had everyone. Everything. His family had money, position in the community. I was alone. My trust in everyone I knew was shattered. I cleaned myself up, as best I could, and made my way to the only person I knew who could help me. I’m not even sure how many miles I walked to get to her place, but I eventually got there. I hid out, not leaving her apartment, for as long as I could until I finally got the courage to try and live again. I got a job at a fast food restaurant about 3 miles away and I walked there … every day. I got one free meal, per day, from them and that’s all I ate. I built myself up, from the ground up, by myself. I made it to the woman I am today … a woman to be proud of … by myself. The year I turned 19 was the worst of my life but I had gotten past it … or so I thought. I didn’t know how much of that pain I had hidden away until I saw my rapist, this October, walking the streets of New Orleans. I was down there for a paranormal convention and was spending some free time with my son, and my best friend, when I saw him walking towards me.

I froze.

26 years of shame, pain and self-loathing flooded back. Choking me until I felt I couldn’t breathe. The only thing that kept me going was my son. I absolutely refused to subject him to anything that had to do with that part of my past. Granted, he knows what happened all those years ago. But … knowing, and actually seeing the man who did it, are two totally different things. So, I told Jana privately, and we walked away as fast as we could.

Part of me keeps trying to rationalize it all. Did I really see him? Was it a doppelganger? A twin I never knew about? Honestly, the answer is irrelevant. The truth, however, is blindingly clear.

sky-2667455_640I’m not OK. That is the truth. What I thought was strength keeping me going was, in fact, fear. Fear of remembering it all. Fear of reliving it all. Fear of feeling all of that all over again. It turns out I did not overcome what happened to me … I buried it. Now that corpse is rising from the grave and torturing me anew. And every time I see someone say in a post, “what was she wearing? She must’ve led him on!” in regard to a claim of rape, it’s like pouring salt in an open wound. I think people do that because they think they will never be on the other side … hurting … crying in shame. For their sake, I hope they are right.
