Remove the Monster From Tarot

Hello! Greetings! Salutations!

As a writer and English teacher, I love words and etymology. Once, I pondered the word “Demonstrate” and realized that it may have the word “Monster” in it. English is a mess of so many languages that my guesses are often wrong though. So I looked it up, and  . . . huzzaahh . . .

From de- “entirely” (see de-) + monstrare “to point out, show,” from monstrum “divine omen, wonder” (see monster)
Source

To show the monster . . . to teach . . . just that these words are related is delightful. To have ‘divine omen and wonder’ included only uplevels my glee.

To de-monster-ate is the act of entirely taking the monster out of.

So much about Tarot is misunderstood. It is up to those of us who love it to demonstrate the truths of it.

If you know someone who has the wrong idea  around what Tarot is about, please share my most recent YouTube on What to Expect from a Tarot Reading with them.

If you want to look closer at the fears in your life to bring divine omen and wonder into any situation, contact me for a tarot reading or intuition coaching session.

I hope to see you soon!

Tarot People are Your People

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.

What if I am embarrassed that people who share my passion are all weirdos?

What if they are too woo for me?

What if I realize that I am an imposter as a reader among pro psychics?

None of this came true.

Instead, what I found was a home.

Tarot Community turns out to be rampant with intellects and open hearts.

Our people read more than cards, they read books.
They love to learn about history, psychology, alchemy, mythology, and symbolism.

Rather than competition and judgement, I found immense collaboration.

Readers love to share their impressions of cards, and listen to even the newest readers on what insights they are tapping into.

Divination inspires compassion.

Through the cards, we learn that everyone is on their own journey of struggles and joys.

Many of us love the esoteric.

I found a lot of movie geeks, who share in my first love of cinema. So I suppose they were ‘weird’ in all the best ways.

I want to help unite this network and bring us together to make new friends and share our wisdom.

You have a chance on May 25th, THIS Wednesday, to meet your own divination community at the online World Tarot Day Event. And it’s Free!

More details below, sign up today to join us!

If you prefer to learn the cards one-on-one or with a friend, Tarot Reading Lessons are available online.

To tune into the great magnet of inner certainty, sign up for Intuition Coaching to gain more skills that help you tap into the all-knowing self.

And, of course you can contact me for a professional Tarot Reading online or in person. 

Mercury Retrograde has it’s benefits! Through until June 3rd you get 10% off my services as a reader, teacher, and coach.
Use code RETRO22 when you sign up, or mention it when you contact me directly to book a session!

I hope to see you next week at the World Tarot Day event!

Tarot Noir: A Free Reading & Flip Through

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 graphic art reminiscent of classic cinema posters, Mad Men era advertising, and, of course, pulp novel covers.

Scroll on for my free reading performed with this new deck.

Then see all the cards for yourself in my newest YouTube Flip Through and Review.

If you want to learn to read the cards yourself, or with a friend, Tarot Reading Lessons are available online.

Engage Your Mind’s Capabilities with Tarot

Learning Tarot is a unique entrance into another way of experiencing our brain’s full capacity.

In exploring the cards, we can see our life path through the lens of metaphor and symbolism. This opens the pathways in our right brain to our intuition and psychic gifts.

As we enrich our fullness of knowing through this divination tool, we become more aware of another kind of intelligence that goes beyond pure logic.

It is one of compassion that wants us to evolve and grow, and loves us through the challenges.

Lessons become more clear and decisions become easier.

Simultaneously, we are using our left brain to read the symbols in a linear story, and analyzing the numbers and elements with our prior knowledge that we learned in school and movies and books.

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.

Tarot cards are both very complex, and incredibly simple.

This course offers a system so you can simplify the stories in the suits, see more clearly the interrelationships between the cards, and lean into trusting yourself more deeply.


Get to know your fully engaged mind when you join The Art of Reading Tarot Course. Sign up: https://Presentpathtarot.as.me/toolsclass

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. 

I hope you can join us and open yourself to a community who also is craving an attunement with their own magical wisdom.

Bring a friend on your journey, so you can both get the class for an extra 10% Off with the code 2FORCLASS 
Just mention each other’s names in the sign up form and register within 3 days of each other.

To study another time with me in a personal lesson, Tarot Reading Lessons are available online. They are the same rate for 2 students, so bring a friend.

Aries Manifestation Skills

Once, a new travel friend and I were walking at 3am on a pilgrimage hike to a Buddhist holy site that you aim to reach at sunrise.

Rotem asked, “What signs are your parents?
I replied, “My Mom is an Aries.
Ah,“, she said in her sultry Israeli accent, “So, you know what it means to move mountains, eh?

Yes, yes I do. My mom is a Berlin-born Aries, and she’s a powerhouse of ‘make it happen‘ energy.

Growing up around that sheer force of will showed me how we can create our best lives and overcome great challenge from our own inner drive.

My mom was sick throughout my childhood with a brutal hormonal imbalance.

Her mantra was, ‘It is always darkest before the dawn’.

She regularly told me how she knew she would get better, and medicine would get better, and the ‘dawn’ of this era of illness would be amazing.

It took 14 years.

Along with those moments of fortitude were repeated cycles of collapses and depressions and new solutions and persistent trying and renewals and improvements and failings.

All along, she said, “I’ll get better, because I am a lucky person.”

And she did get healthy. New studies came out. New medicines. Relief for all of us.

She’s been living in her dawn ever since, and is grateful for her good luck.

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.

Sit quietly and breathe for long enough to feel into your upper abdomen.
Imagine a yellow light growing from this center, encompassing your whole energetic body that emits a few feet around you in a sphere.

Ask your core center:
What do I want?

Listen within.
Envision yourself having this.
How will you feel?
Call that feeling into yourself from memories and imagination.
Hold this YES in yourself as you breath into this future you are about to enact.
Describe all the details you are creating in this vision.
Smile at this joy you are welcoming.

Now, ask yourself:
What is my very first step that I can enact this week?

Sit with the options.
Narrow it down to smaller and smaller steps.
Find the very first step.
See yourself doing this step this week.

If any thoughts of failure come up, bring in compassion.
That may have happened before, but this time is the right time.
You are ready.
You forgive your old self.
Hold yourself in acceptance and enthusiasm.
Now is the time.


Pull that yellow light back into your Manipura chakra in your upper abdomen.
Hold it there, knowing that you will act from your center of power.


Open your eyes.
Write this step down in your to-do list or calendar.
Set up a time to do it.
Perhaps contact an accountability buddy to check in on you around it next week.

Or, skip the notes, and go do this first small step  immediately.

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. 

I am getting more interest this time than my norm, so the class is filling up!

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.

Who is the Fool in the Tower?

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. 

The Fool is the person who is on their life’s journey, taking leaps of faith toward their purpose. Think Harry Potter, Katniss Everdeen, or any Superhero at the beginning of the story.

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.

This can be breaking a habit that cycles your life into chaos regularly.

This can be neglect of a responsibility that catches up with you.

This can be over-confidence or low self esteem.

It just depends on what your battle is about.

When we witness the Superhero vanquishing the ultimate enemy, that is the Fool in the Tower moment.

Sure, it’s less dramatic to simply become competent at something you have fumbled with for too long. But it’s worth it for the achievement.

The inspiration for this topic is from this week’s Instagram Live, which I have posted below. Start at the beginning for free readings. Go to minute 30 for lessons on the Tower Card and then the Fool Card.

This lesson is a small taste of the kinds of subjects we deep dive into in my April The Art of Reading Tarot Course. 

We are getting a great turnout so far! Get your spot while there’s room.

If you have struggled with confidence in reading the cards, this is your chance to overcome this limitation and be your own hero.

Enjoy Being a Fool,

What to Look for in a Tarot Deck

“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.

A tarot deck is a work of art that speaks to you, and it’s best if you choose it for yourself. Find one with images that draw you in and speak to you.

If your mind can wander across symbols and details as you gaze at each card, this will help you get into your elusive right bring as a reader.

A traditional Tarot deck has 78 cards in 5 suits that relate to the major arcana from Fool to the World, and minor arcana suits related to the 4 elements.

It’s fine if they threw in an extra beyond that, like the Happy Squirrel card (inspired by a Simpsons episode).

Check that the minor arcana (typically aligned as Cups, Swords, Pentacles and Wands) are all richly decorated with stories and symbols.

It’s a lot harder to interpret the meanings of a picture that just has 4 Swords on it, rather than a portrayal of a person resting peacefully.

While a used deck can be fine, it’s best to cleanse it before reading with it. Put all the cards in sequential order. Sage it. Interview it (learn more about this is my class). Make sure the cards resonate well in your hands and feel right to you.

If you are getting a new deck, please be sure to purchase your decks from the artist who made it or their publisher, and not a knock-off illegal reprint.

Just mention each other’s names in the sign up form and register within 3 days of each other.

To learn anytime with me on your own or with a friend, Tarot Reading Lessons are available with me online. They are the same rate for 2-for-1 so you can split the expense with a buddy. 

In the meantime, come and get a Tarot Reading with me to align with your best life path right now.

Cups Cups Cups!

The Suit of Springtime speaks to our hearts and our arts, and the month of March has a lot of potential for creative fun and love connections.

The Ace of Cups and 7 of Cups
Find your focus with creative endeavors and love searches.
Don’t sign up for all the dating sites or all the creative classes
(You know which class I think you would love the most 😉
Choose ONE direction that fills your heart and excites your self-expression and lets you feel your inner goober and dive all in!
It doesn’t matter what you choose, 
so much as that you stick with it
and observe your experience with curiosity.

Page of Cups and 6 of Cups
Time to give nurturing attention to your tender self
with nostalgia for the kid you once were.
Get yourself to a museum
and bring a fun kid who you can see things afresh through.
Watch a movie that you loved when you were young, especially one that brings out the emotional flairs that need expressed. 

10 of Pentacles and 2 of Wands
This early creative exploration could turn into something more grounded
as you find a rhythm and make decisions in your life
to follow through on some magnetic attraction.
Toward the end of the month, you will be ready 
for an enriching mix of dedication and passion.
This could be an art project or a lover who you begin to take more seriously.

I hope this upbeat reading is helpful for each of you who read it.
It’s one of the happier rounds I have enjoyed sharing.
So go get creative and emotional and smell some spring blossoms.

Thanks to Kitten Chops for her unique Playful Heart Deck
