To learn about the Major Arcana overall and the first card in the Major Arcana, The Fool, go here.

To learn about the Magician, go here.

To learn about the High Priestess, go here.

To learn about the Emperor, go here.

Roar, Lion, roar! But what is the Strength card really about?

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

On select Fridays, I’ll be posting a few links that are currently rocking my world.


What happens when I over-commit myself to a potluck and a recipe… chaos in the kitchen!:

Of course, I deleted the “after” picture, but I swear to you, it turned out looking JUST like it did on the website! Smitten Kitchen, you make me look like a goddamn genius! Recipe for Cauliflower and Parmesan Cake, right here: https://smittenkitchen.com/2010/10/cauliflower-and-parmesan-cake/

It’s been a month since hubby and I finally went on our honeymoon. Some days, I’m like, “take me back to the Bahamas!” Okay, who am I kidding? MOST days. I’ll be sharing pictures soon, but here’s my favorite one, taken by the official Disney photographer on the cruise:

Awwww... still feeling like newlyweds, a year later!

Awwww… still feeling like newlyweds, a year later!

 

 

Some more links to round out your week:

Want to read tarot at an event? Beth Maiden gives you the low-down on what to expect (and what to ask for!): http://www.autostraddle.com/fools-journey-so-you-want-to-read-tarot-at-an-event-349387/

The above is definitely good advice, but if you really want to become a festival reader, this book is invaluable: Jenna Matlin’s “Have Tarot Will Travel: A Comprehensive Guide to Reading at Festivals as a Tarot Reader” (and yes, that is me that edited this book!)… gotta love the one star review because “tarot isn’t real” (rolls eyes).

I bit the bullet and got myself an online scheduler a little while back! No more email back and forth to arrive on a date and time for your readings with me, people! (You can obvs still email me, as I love hearing from you…) Are you a service provider that needs the power of online scheduling? I can’t recommend Acuity Scheduling enough in terms of ease of use, saving time, and peace of mind. Get scheduling through them, here: Acuity Scheduling [affiliate link]

Have a problem with consistency (starting it and sticking with it)? You’re not alone! One of my readers, Will Chou, reached out to me after reading one of MY articles regarding consistency… and he’s got some great advice for you, here: 17 Secrets To Be More Consistent and Stay More Consistent 

So the big giveaway of The Tarot Coloring Book is over, and the lucky winners are being sent their goodies tomorrow. Sorry for any broken hearts I may have caused for you not winning! But you can still enjoy The Tarot Coloring Book by picking up your own copy… and when you do? Check out this ongoing series from Theresa on how to bling your copy out! How to Bling The Tarot Coloring Book 

My latest musical obsession? Outlander Season 2 Soundtrack by Bear McCreary… the blog published on its release date is here: http://www.bearmccreary.com/#blog/blog/albums/outlander-season-2-soundtrack/ [Some spoilers here from the season, so tread carefully!]

Speaking of Bear McCreary, his USC Thornton School of Music commencement address is pretty spectacular. You may not realize it now, but attitude really IS everything.
