All Quiet on the Tarot Blog front…

The thing about behind the scenes work is it’s behind the scenes. As in, weeks go by without so much a peep on my blog… And y’all loyal readers are left in the dark, wondering what the heck? Why isn’t she posting? Has Hilary finally cracked and run off to join the circus for real this time? Is she eating Bon-bons and rolling in a swimming pool full of cash?

Sadly, neither of the above scenarios are true (the circus, the Bon-bons). Just busy busy busy with seeing clients, working on my private magickal practices, meditating, and writing…

…and streamlining my scheduling process so that it becomes more automated and easier to book a reading with me!

Yes, I have bitten that proverbial bullet and found an online scheduler that’s right for me, and will prevent the oh so fun “e-mail tag” that has hounded the booking process for me for years.

For now, you can still schedule as you’ve done in the past: by checking out my purchase page and using the paypal drop-down menus and emailing me with your availability. -OR- you can book me through my scheduling page, found here:


My purchase page will be updated soon to integrate this new way of scheduling, and also be more streamlined and clearer for client use. After all, there’s nothing more frustrating than wanting to work with someone, and not knowing HOW!

As always, if you have ANY problems or questions, please feel free to email me at tarrytowntarot@gmail.com -OR- hilary@tarotbyhilary.com.

[Update 8/23/16, 9:45pm: New scheduling/booking system is now integrated into my Purchase page! Go there to schedule! Yay!]

I look forward to serving you!

Blessings,

Natural Isn’t Supernatural: Why ESP Isn’t Extrasensory

crossroads-997123_640

When I was little, I wanted superpowers (who didn’t?). I was drawn to TV shows that were science fiction/fantasy, shows like The Tomorrow People (the Nickelodeon import from the UK version) in which the teenagers would teleport and read each other’s minds. Movies like Escape to Witch Mountain with the twin brother and sister that ended up being telekinetic and telepathic aliens. And don’t even get me started on the classic 80s movie Teen Witch, starring Blake Lively’s older sister, Robyn (did you know that?).

But I’ve come to find that those supernatural powers out of sci/fi and fantasy turn out to not be so supernatural at all… That our “sixth sense”, known as being psychic or intuition, is in fact very natural after all. And my childhood self would be delighted to discover some of those superpowers I always wanted as a child I have come to practice and fine-tune as an adult, professionally as a tarot reader and personally.Continue Reading

How to Read Tarot Outside

How to Read Tarot Outside


I’ve read tarot outside in a cemetery. I’ve read tarot outside on a busy street corner during third Friday or for street fairs. I’ve read tarot outside of a public library when they realized we were using their “conference room” as a free meeting place for doing tarot sessions. I’ve read tarot in a public park, sitting on a park bench.

Each time I’ve had to contend with the blowing wind and with denizens of nature such as mosquitoes and ants. It was not an uncommon thing for me to be deep into a reading with someone and then yell “Oh SHIT!” as the wind picked up and the cards went a’flying.

But things like that shouldn’t stop you from taking your tarot cards outside! Here’s how to do it without damaging or losing a single precious card.Continue Reading
