I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends. Now, we begin the annual season of sales sales sales. But, not me. This next few weeks, I am not going to try to sell you a reading or a tarot class or… Continue Reading “Really Cool Freebies!”
When I was in elementary school, I loved the grotesque humor of the Garbage Pail Kids. Snot dripping, vomit spewing, head-bursting, skin melting grossness. It was kid humor heaven.
My mom, however, did not approve. Probably for good reason. There was a lot of unhealthy social mockery and cartoonish violence in them for sure.
Well, now I am an adult and I do-what-I-want, MOM! I gave in and splurged the $25 for the official Garbage Pail Kids Tarot Deck.
It has a book written by a legit pro tarot reader, Minerva Siegel, so I felt validated. The deck also does a decent job translating the original Waite-Smith Symbolism into the grody theme.
This weekend is about so much more than sexy witch outfits and jello shots with eyeballs floating in them.
This is a time that many cultures believe the veil is thin between the realms.
This is a great time to reflect on your own shadows with the Moon Card.
The Moon card is about our subconscious.
It’s about shedding light on what is hidden in the dark recesses of our mind.
The Moon Card wants us to see and accept our whole Self, bruised triggers and all.
I love Fall. It brings with it the lovely leaves and the need to go inside our homes and read or dive into whatever introspective projects you crave. I just bought a ukelele myself.
We begin our Autumn season with the sacred holy day of Samhain (pronounced “Sao-wen). Typically, Samhain is celebrated around the same time as Halloween, although they are different culturally.
With all the hubbub of the season with costume parties, it makes sense to me to simply enact your own personal Samhain ritual when you can make room for a quiet moment to do so at this time of year.
There are different ways to celebrate if you so choose.
This open-heart state is something that the Tarot has taught me to lean into. When you learn to read the tarot, you build skills of awareness that expand your ability to align with the directions that the Universe is lighting for you.
This class I am offering this month is not just about the cards. It’s about self-care on a magical level. It’s about you deciding to trust yourself more fully than before, and gaining the skills to do so with wisdom. The Art of Tarot is the Art of Living Fully.
And, this is a unique opportunity, because I am already in the process to make it a video course this Fall. So join me in person while you still can and hang out with me and my big old open heart this month.
This week, I took my love of the pirate comedy and my love of Tarot and I smooshed them together. Learn about the cards through my interpretations and let me know your own take on which cards you would assign to which characters. Don’t worry, no real spoilers if you haven’t seen it yet.
If you would like to see your own favorite movies, shows, and books through the tarot lens of archetypes, join me in the upcoming Art of Tarot Reading Class in October! You too can film geek out on a witchy level!
One association many parts of the world makes with this time of year is the act of learning in school. I believe that our brains have been trained through habit to hunger for knowledge in this season, it’s the collective unconscious message of the moment.
So why not use this wave and dive into really learning about how to look at your life through a fresh perspective that the ancient archetypes in the tarot offers?
Come back to school with the rest of the world as we dive into this fulfilling upcoming course. This class is currently shifting on it’s own winds into a video-focused course. This might be your best chance to get a live edition, so sign up today!
The collective experience of 2020 was powerful. Around the world, we ALL sheltered in place. We ALL faced our fears of illness on such a grand scale.
Many of us faced loneliness, income loss, and/or depression.
Yet, many of us also found a sense of relief to slow down, reconnect with our inner introvert, make art, read books, or binge shows.
In the US, we also witnessed an uprising of protest for human rights, and many of us added our voice in our own way.
All of the above is true for me. Perhaps it was for you as well.
Take a moment to reflect on your personal journey with such a powerful moment in recent history. How have you grown or changed since then?
Tarot is great for transitions. And Astrologically, that’s what we are in a swirling whirl of right now.
According to those in the know with the zodiac, don’t stress the success this next week. Let the Full Moon slow you down and remind you what you’re ready to release and let go of in your patterns in life.
Take it easy and get some fresh awareness from a place of centered clarity that will make you more efficient in the time ahead.
Then, treat yourself to 10% off a reading or a lesson in the cards to figure out how to best set your sails in this upcoming season. Use the code RETRO22 at checkout, or mention it to me when you text or call to schedule.
Use this unique astro phase to get an insightful Tarot Reading in-person and online. People often share that they feel uplifted, empowered, and validated in their own inner knowing after a session with me.
Bonus Offer! This month, if you send someone new my way who gets a reading or lesson and they mention your name, you get $10 off your next session of any kind with me, including my upcoming class!
This week, I share with you a view into my favorite new deck, The Tarot of Mystical Moments by Catrin Welz-Stein.
It more than satisfies for myself as a reader. However, it’s also not an easy starter deck. The images don’t wholly express the meanings of each card. Many are very simple in their symbolism.
That is why it adds so much to your life as a lover of meaningful art to really learn the 78 cards of the traditional Tarot. Once you grasp the essence of each card, which I teach you how to do in my upcoming online live course, you can read with any deck that you feel drawn to.
This might very well be the last chance to get this class live in-person with me! Early bird rate ends Monday.
