Tarot Reading for August 2020

When I do a reading, different decks speak to me. As my clients know, I often mix decks. Two decks yelled at me for August – The Starman Tarot, by Davide and Esther De Angelis, which I have used often for readings on the blog, and my new favorite deck, The Tarot of Bones by…

Looking forward to May 2020

(This post is a combination of two articles from my May 2020 newsletter) Blessed Beltane! Beltane (falls on 5/5/20) is the midway point between the Vernal Equinox and Summer Solstice (in the Northern half of the globe) and is also one of the two times a year when the veil is at its thinnest. In…

How to Win (a reading for April 2020)

The April newsletter didn’t offer a reading, so here it is: This month’s card is The Chariot (VII), from the Starman Tarot Davide and Esther say this about the card: The Chariot is the war vehicle that carries this dreadlocked Bowie-esque king forward to victory against his enemies. His battle-dress, demeanor, and maturity suggests he…

A quick reading for March 2020

This reading originally appeared in the March 2020 newsletter. Winning of any kind involves sacrifices. At first glance, the difference between ‘winning at a cost’ and ‘winning at any cost’ might seem trivial, but deeper inspection uncovers stories of lives and careers, shattered and broken. In the conflagration of a blinding obsession and quest for…

Forecast: Looking Ahead to 2020

As I’m doing my 2020 forecasts for clients, a theme keeps coming up over and over again, and it came up in a student reading in Journey the Mystical Tarot as well. So I thought I would share the information here. This is a pivotal year world-wide. Numerologically, we are in a year of either…

I hold a Tarot Playshop on the first Wednesday of the month, in which we explore intuitive card reading. It is open to all levels of experience, including the brand new novice.

Reading for October – We are of the Earth

Queen of Pentacles from The Starman Tarot by Davide and Esther De Angelis “We are all part of Mother Earth: an indivisible, living community of interconnected systems. Evidence of exploitation and contamination of the lands, over the years, has lead to corrosive deterioration and destruction, threatening the diversity of life, including our own. If we…

Tarot Reading for September 2019

Princess of Cups “A gentle, delicate being, the Princess of Cups is finely tuned to the watery world of emotions. Perhaps naively, she wants to believe that a Utopia is possible, a world that is abundant with love, light, and peace. When she discovers the world can be a dark and deadly realm, the shock…

Grief and Personal Growth: A reading for 8/2019

The Five of Cups “I am inconsolable” From Davide De Angelis: “For this card to have impact, one does not have to be dealing with something catastrophic. It points to the fact that we all carry tremendous grief: ancestral grief, family grief, cultural grief, grief for our loss of innocence. Grief is part of the…

Starting My Own Business: A Tarot Workshop Question

On the first Wednesday of the month, I offer a tarot playshop/workshop. We play with our intuitive sides, using various exercises. The idea is to become a better reader (even if you don’t even think of yourself as a reader) by developing a visual language with your cards. One of the exercises we do is…

Forecast for June 2019

The overarching pattern of the forecast for June suggests to me that the focus is on prosperity. Not necessarily on having it, but on paying attention, planing, evaluating your relationship to it, and holding space for it. If you do have it, be careful, conscious, and deliberate in how you use it. If you’re working…
