Yesterday, I walked through my backyard and saw the perfect Ace of Pentacles staring up at me from my strawberry bush. A flower making a star inside the circle of soft white petals.
Last weekend, I joined a group of fellow tarot readers at the coast.
We shared readings and stories and food and laughter.
I didn’t know any of them when I signed up to spend 3 days together, but I knew we would be kindred spirits.
I did not always have such certainty in my love of divination community.
For years, I was nervous to go to tarot conferences for what I might learn.
On May 25th, Wednesday, we will offer a night of professional readers, guided practice sessions, and local authors of tarot books sharing their insights. If you get your ticket now, you get two raffle tickets to score some unique offerings from our growing list of prizes! More details below, sign up today to join us!
I love old movies and books as much as I love Tarot.
(I guess I am a true Cancerian).
So I was giddy when I found this new deck (already sold out!) by Todd Alcott that merges the Smith-Rider-Waite deck and art reminiscent of classic cinema posters, old Mad Men era advertising, and, of course, pulp novel covers.
Learning Tarot is a unique entrance into another way of experiencing our brain’s full capacity.
You already have a vast amount of wisdom to serve your readings, and my class offers you a key to connect what you already know to what you desire to learn.
If you want to read the cards without a book, this is your chance to put focus into a real solution and make your desire come to fruition.
The New Moon in Aries is a reminder to tap into that kind of manifestation energy.
Here is a ritual for you to enact with the inspiration of my mom’s story.
If learning to trust your inner voice more is a goal you desire, tarot is a magnificent pathway.
This is a great astrological time to tap into your own empowered psychic gifts and join The Art of Reading Tarot Course.
Surprise . . . You are. And so am I.
Each of us is, really.
While this question may sound like a political joke, in the Tarot it is a reference to the individual’s moment of great challenge in our most essential life lessons.
And that includes you on your own hero’s journey.
The Tower is the challenge in life that will keep coming around again and again until your inner Fool defeats it.
A rare offering from me, next Wednesday at Noon PST I am going to do an Instagram Live to cover anything you want to discuss in these realms!
I will answer your questions about how to read the cards or get direction in your life. First come, first serve! So arrive early to get your chance!
This is all a warm up to my upcoming April edition of The Art of Reading Tarot Course.
“Can I Buy My Own First Deck?”
I get this question a lot.
The Answer is a Resounding YES.
People want to add mystery and ritual to the tarot, so they have created this story that makes it seem more like a club that you need to know someone to get into.
Unless you’re already in a coven with a matriarch who is about to bequeath you with your first deck, please buy your own deck.
Tarot helps me trust that the universe is here to support my best self to be more in charge.
That ‘Atman’ Self, and the cards that speak through it, are inherently compassionate.
The messages are about how we can walk with grace through the tests we face.
And to catch the finer opportunities that bring us higher potential for Joy.
It’s easier than you think to read the cards, and it helps immensely to have a solid teacher walk you through the steps to learning this age-old art.
Learn how to effectively see the cards in my upcoming Bi-Annual session of The Art of Reading Tarot Course.
