What I do at a psychic faire: use all I’ve got

This weekend, I did my first ever psychic faire. I know, I know, you’ve been in the tarot business for how many years, and this was your first psychic faire? Yup, it’s true. My friend Jenna “Queen of Wands” Matlin will be ashamed of me.

My forever-on-my-ass biz mentor Theresa Reed calls psychic faires or parties a “psychic gangbang.” For her, this kind of energy is just not her jam and she doesn’t do ‘em. And that’s cool. To each our own, as the wise ones say.

I THRIVED on this energy. Loved it. Got a little jealous and down in the dumps when I saw tons of people booked for one person while my client seat was empty, but reminded myself that some people there have a following there or local clients. Yes, I compared myself to the other readers there (hey, I’m human), but the butterflies in my stomach (it happens for every new client, like the energy of a first date) disappeared once the client’s butt was in my chair and the cards were shuffled. And once one person took a chance on an unknown kid (comment below if you get that reference), I didn’t have a break until it was closing time. Sweet!

This experience has given rise to a new way of working for me.Continue Reading

For some, the Strength card is a source of, well… Strength! When the Strength card comes up in a reading, it can be a tricky card, because it can either tell you that you need strength or you already have the strength to get through the situation that you asked about… Even if you don’t believe you actually have the strength.Continue Reading

An update & a surprise to help you start 2017 with a bang!


I’ve never been much into New Year’s Resolutions – I’ve found most of mine laying by the wayside come the 3rd week of January, at best. But one thing I do know?

I’m hopelessly devoted to serving you next year.

I’ve been listening closely, all year long, and especially when newsletter subscribers filled out my yearly survey in August. The #1 struggle that you’ve shared with me is getting unstuck.

That’s why I’m declaring 2017 to be the Year of Cosmic Clarity.

That’s right. I’m on a one-woman mission to help you “get clear.” [and not in the Scientology “going clear” way]

What do I mean by clear? Here’s an example: maybe you have been feeling stuck creatively, knowing you have a book to write or art to create but can’t seem to find the _________ [time/energy/inspiration/motivation/insert your reasons or excuses here] to actually make it happen. A tarot reading can help you get clear on what’s really blocking you, help you tap into your creative center, and open up channels so you can start creating NOW. Anyone ever told you that you “have a book in you?” A tarot reading can help you make that happen… if that’s what you want to do!

More on that later.

Here’s some of the hot stuff that you can expect from me in 2017:Continue Reading
