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.

A follow up to Saturday’s blog post about Solar Activity

On Saturday, I posted about an ongoing energy shift due to solar activity. According to SpaceWeather, the Sun is sending bursts of radio energy toward Earth strong enough to make audible noises in the loudspeakers of common shortwave receivers. That’s pretty strong. People are feeling uneasy. I have talked before about how the energy of…

Energy shift, courtesy of Sol

From SpaceWeather: This weekend, one of the largest sunspots in recent years is directly facing Earth. The behemoth is not producing strong flares, but it is doing something rare and interesting.

Being present, being familiar with being present, and being able to bring oneself back into the present are a good place to start. Every time you ground and center yourself, you bring yourself more…

Lent could be your opportunity for great growth

Most of the Christian celebrations, for example, are defined by the sun and the solar calendar, with the exception of Easter and its surrounding observations. Easter is a combination of solar and…

Connections – Tarot Card of the Month for March 2019

This month’s pull is the Ten of Cups, again from the Starman Tarot by Esther and Davide De Angelis. My usual Tarot deck is the Robin Wood Tarot, and the visual language is so different from this one, and yet, somehow, it has a lot of the same feeling of it (connections, community, family). The…

Psychic Protection is foundational, empowering information

A lot of people get annoyed when they want to study with me and I tell them they need to take my Psychic Protection class first. They argue that they already know the information. They argue they just want to learn The Thing. Sometimes they just wander off. Psychic Protection is a prerequisite for so…
