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!

Happy Fall Equinox

The seasons are flowing back to the cool months on this side of the equator.

I love living in a time when I get to see posts from my friends in Australia and New Zealand who are celebrating the onset of summer. We live in such a big-small world on this spinning rock that’s hurtling through space.

I grew up in San Diego, where the fall didn’t mean much more than returning to school and maybe some awful dry winds.

I remember being giddy for any sign that my desert environment was changing to cooler days. I was the weirdo who wanted the rain, and didn’t understand why neighbors would complain about a few sprinkles.

Now I live in Oregon, where the seasons bring dramatic flairs of crisp leaves and varied flowers and then rain rain rain. Be careful what you wish for.

I bring this to you today to ask us all to think about our little microcosm that we live in and how the wider world is having their own unique moment with this change of seasons. The Equinox is the same essential date around the globe, but has different meaning for each environment.

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 Art of Tarot Reading Course runs from October 10th – 27th
Mondays and Thursdays from 6pm – 7:30pm PST

We go in depth in Lessons that Teach You:

– To Grasp the Essentials of every Card
– To Layer Archetypes together to Create New Meanings
– To Access your own Psychic Gifts
– To Energetically Protect yourself through Magick Rituals
– And much more . . .

Sign up together with a friend with the special 10% rate, using the code 2FORCLASS. Mention each other’s names when you fill out the questionnaire.

Each class is recorded and you have access to all videos for 3 months after!

Have a taste of what my style is like with a Tarot Tutoring session.
Include a friend to share the cost as well!

A Pandemic Deck

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 in Pandemic and Revolution focuses on this recent era. While it’s not my personal favorite deck, it is interesting to see our collective era being portrayed by 24 different visual artists. Check it out to get this fresh perspective of the tarot through this modern lens. 

Then, if you want to really absorb the meanings of the cards through a deck that works well for you, watch this video to understand what to look for in a learning deck. This is a great way to prepare yourself for. . .

Deck-adent Tarot

Learning the cards more fully means getting fresh eyes on artistic interpretations of the traditional tarot.

This week, I share with you a view into my favorite new deck, The Tarot of Mystical Moments by Catrin Welz-Stein. Her art first grabbed me when I found her Oracle deck at the NW Tarot Symposium years ago. While those images were luscious art, I didn’t resonate with the card meanings. So, when I found that she had created a full Tarot deck, I leapt to purchase it.

It more than satisfies for myself as a reader. However, it’s also not an easy starter deck. The strikingly beautiful 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.

In the meantime, consider looking for a learning deck that has detailed and rich symbolism on all the cards, especially the minor arcana. You can still find ones that resonate with you, but make sure they also tell you a story that helps you align with the intention of the life experience it is related to.

Last Chance to get the sweetest deal before the rate will go up to $169 next Monday afternoon!

As mentioned previously, I intend to transform this course into an online evergreen video lecture series. I already spent the money to take a course in this skill, so I am full steam ahead.

This might very well be the last chance to get this class live in-person!

Early Bird Rate of only $133 for 9 hours + of class runs now through Labor Day, Sept. 5th. Only a few days left!

The Art of Tarot Reading Course runs from October 10th – 27th
Mondays and Thursdays from 6pm – 7:30pm PST

We go in depth in Lessons that Teach You:

– To Grasp the Essentials of every Card
– To Layer Archetypes together to Create New Meanings
– To Access your own Psychic Gifts
– To Energetically Protect yourself through Magick Rituals
– And much more . . .

It’s time you treated yourself to really learning the cards so you can see your life brighten through the lens of tarot. Let symbolism speak to you wherever you go with this new comprehension.

Sign up together with a friend with the special 10% rate, using the code 2FORCLASS. Mention each other’s names when you fill out the questionnaire.

If you miss any classes, no stress! Each one is recorded and you have access to all videos for 3 months after!

Turning the Tower Card Into the Magician

The last week has been a hard time for me.

Google Maps disabled my business account for an unknown reason, and have been non-responsive to my requests.

This has brought up my personal anxieties around bureaucracy and irrelevance.
I feel like a pebble in a vast ocean.

This is a Tower Card moment for me, where the foundations I relied upon are showing their fractures.

I have bounced around feelings of helplessness and faith and frustration and hope.

In these shock waves, I am proud of myself for trying to use this trial as an impetus to push forward in new directions and restructure my business to gain from the wisdom of this moment.

From the perspective of the Magician Card, I have begun to focus on how I can expand beyond reliance on local readings, which make up a large portion of my income.

I have just paid for a top end coaching course that will help me fulfill  a goal I have had for years: moving my Live Online Course that I teach twice each year into an ongoing offering made up of video lessons.

I am not sure what this will look like yet, but I do believe it will mean that this upcoming October course is the last Live Session I intend to do for a while, especially at this exceptional rate.

The Art of Tarot Reading Course runs from October 10th – 27th
Mondays and Thursdays from 6pm – 7:30pm PST

My Tech Glitch is Your Sweet Deal

When I was a kid, I would open up the giant Yellow Pages of phone numbers to the word ‘Psychic’ to find a tarot reading. My fingers would get smudged with ink that would transfer to the phone buttons as I dialed the numbers to inquire on each clairvoyant’s offerings. Businesses with names at the top of the alphabet often came first.

Entrepreneurs today rely on Google Maps to get fresh eyes on their business. A seeker types in ‘Tarot’, and gets a list of the nearby readers. We typically aim for the ones with the highest reviews or best location for our needs. I have worked diligently to be a top choice in my area.

This week, I went to send a message to a client only to find that Google mysteriously disabled my business account  . . . during peak summer tourist season. This is a momentary Tower Card, but hopefully will get resolved and is already teaching me not to put so many eggs in that basket.

Most of all, it reminded me that YOU are my community who I feel the most connected to. Your presence here is an inspiration and motivation to my sense of what I am creating in my little corner of the world. Thank you for that. 

I want to hear from you. I would love to learn:

What would you love to learn more about in my emails?

Is there a particular offering that you get the most giddy to gain from?


I figured you can also benefit from what the Tarot has to say about how to manage any of your own bumps in the road right now. Below is a reading for you that is specific to how to handle the frustrating challenges this week poses to each of us. As an extra treat, I used my rare Elf of Heaven deck, purchased in Taiwan over a decade ago, to add some fun to the reading.

While waiting for Google to call me to sort out what happened, I am offering a unique discount of 20% off all readings and tutor sessions for this week only!

To sign up for yours, either reply to this email or sign up on my scheduler with the code 1WEEK20, good through Aug. 26th.

 Reach out today to set up a Tarot Reading  in-person on online this month.

You also can catch the current special rate on the upcoming Art of Tarot Reading Course that runs from October 10th – 27th, Mondays and Thursdays from 6pm – 7:30pm PST

Early Bird Rate of only $133 for 9 hours of class runs now through Labor Day, Sept. 5th.

Sign up together with a friend with the special 10% rate, using the code 2FORCLASS. Mention each other’s names when you fill out the questionnaire.

This Week’s Free Reading


3 of Cups Reversed: A social malfunction or personal conflict within your community is something to look at in regards to this week’s bump in the road.

When the 3 of Cups reversed comes up, it seems a good time to pull away from socializing and get some perspective on how different people make you feel, or how you make them feel.
Also consider whether the way you are partying is truly satisfying and healthy right now.

High Priestess and the Star Card: Woah. Powerful Combo. Quiet your mind and listen to your intuition to hear the great and impactful message coming soon. It may be shrouded in a bit of mystery in the meantime.

I know it might not seem like it now, but you can manifest a great result from this minor upset. Tune into what you desire in regards to how you interact with your community, and how you want to form healthier connections. Know that the benefits outweigh the costs if you imagine your best future circumstances.

Two of Wands: New insights will lend to fresh energy in a better direction

Not far from now, you will refocus on a different way of spending your energy. It’s good to slow your roll and make decisions from an inner certainty of what steps will lead you to your highest manifestations. Listen to your gut in your decisions. Consider who you want to hang out with and how you want to socialize.

A lot of messages here state that you have the power to enact greatness from challenge if you listen to your inner self and Trust the messages you Hear.

October Class Dates

We are gathering again this Autumn to learn the cards together in an in-depth course on all things Tarot.

October 10th – 27th, Mondays and Thursdays from 6pm – 7:30pm PST

If you can’t make a class, each one is recorded and you have access to all videos for 3 months after!

Early Bird Rate of only $133 for 9 hours of class runs now through Labor Day, Sept. 5th. Get it today!

Sign up together with a friend with the special 10% rate, using the code 2FORCLASS. Mention each other’s names when you fill out the questionnaire.

A previous student has this to say about the Art of Tarot Reading Course:
“I’ve been learning tarot off and on for the past 5 years and it wasn’t until taking Jenna’s course that I felt everything click! She doesn’t just go over the meaning of all the cards (sat through a workshop of that before, boring!), she also goes over symbols, numbers, how to read two cards together, intuition, and so much more! Her class was a game changer for me and now I read comfortably with confidence for myself and others.”
– TIffany Tong

In the meantime, it’s often best to get someone else to bring the insights of the cards to you, especially a professional who brings compassion and humor. Call me to set up a Tarot Reading  in-person on online this month.

Prefer a more intimate leasson? Tarot Tutoring is a way for you to get exactly the direction you desire. Bring a friend for the same rate and learn together!

Or, get lessons in listening to your own higher self with Intuition Coaching.

Between October 9th – 29th, the course will run twice a week, with 1.5 hours for each session.

What days and times work best for you?

Message me to let me know!

You are More than your Sun

With my Sun in Cancer, I used to get jealous of the Leo personality descriptions.

Turning the pages from this ‘nurturing homebody who likes yard sales’ to the ‘vivacious life of the party’ made me feel like I was missing out.

And then I found out that I am a whole lot of Leo in my Moon, Mercury, and Saturn.

It makes sense to me that my Leo self wanted to be a Leo. But I also found more pride in my Cancerian heart as I owned my inner lioness.

This shift in perspective also taught me to honor that we are so much more than our Sun signs.

If you don’t know your whole chart, check out Astro.com and put in your birth hour and location to learn the bigger picture.

This weekend, we transition from Cancer to Leo, and are about to step into the full warmth of summer. I drew some cards to help you align with how to best manage this next week.

Own this season of your own life with empowerment when you get a Tarot Reading with me in-person on online.

Tarot Reading Lessons are the same cost for two as they are for one person. Learn to access the art form together.

Summer signs are super intuitive and it’s a great time to learn to better hear your inner voice with some Intuition Coaching.

I hope to see you soon!

A Reading for the Transition from Cancer Sun into Leo Sun

Earth splats right in the middle of our transition from water to fire with a message to slow down like a solid Queen of Pentacles.

The 4 of Swords seems to be saying that we have not been resting enough during this past month of Sun in Cancer.

How can you take a break from doing too much and thinking too much and take some time to relish the soft earth of grounding into pleasure this week?

Doing so will bring balance into your Leo month ahead.
The Temperance card is about integrating the lessons you’ve been learning lately into a more functional habits.

Temperance also asks us
how can we each find the sweet spot
between  internal self-care and external world engagement,
between doing enough and resting enough,
between allowing our watery emotions with our fiery zest?


I hope this helps you make good choices and enjoy your life more fully.

If you desire more personal direction from the cards, please contact me for Your own unique reading either online or in person this week

Summer is Social Tarot Time

Cards of 78 archetypes are not meant to be learned alone. 

Sure, you can crack open book after book and absorb the wisdom of experts.
But that’s winter work.

The archetypes are meant to be understood through the collective lens. One of my favorite ways of learning is by joining up with friends and talking about how we perceive the cards.

This week, I share with a fun game to play to enhance how you value each card. This is just one way to exchange ideas with a friend.

Other ideas for social tarot time:

– Each of you pulls a card and imagines them as a personality, then hold a conversation, with each of you playing your card’s role

– Each of you chooses a card that intimidates you, and the other person tries to open your perspective to ways that this card can be a supportive message to help in hard times

– Place ten cards in a line up and tell a story together as though it’s a graphic novel, taking turns with each new ‘panel’

– In a larger group, pull one card and each person says one word that captures it’s essence, then talk about how these fit into a bigger picture of issues that happen in life (When would this card most likely come up for someone?)

This summer, you and a friend can also treat yourselves to some Tarot Reading Lessons with me for the same price as one person. Learn to dive into your own inner wisdom together. We can meet online so you can connect with friends from afar as well. More are welcome for only a small rate increase as well!

If you are in a time of transition and need some light shed on your best choices, come get a Tarot Reading with me sometime.

Or, learn to better hear your inner voice without the cards with some Intuition Coaching.

Go play with the archetypes this month!
