Sovereign Oracle Deck

Theresa Pridemore has released 3 expansion decks for her word-based oracle deck. This is an accessible deck for a wordsmith or someone who is interested in divination, but not keen to dive into the depths of symbology.

Animal Totem tarot

New to Tarot, Zoë explores the perfect new deck for her to enter into this field with, the Animal Totem Tarot. Jenna and Zoë talk about the wisdom and intelligence of this unique deck that is a great fit for anyone who understands animals and their behaviors. We offer a reading at the end for everyone listening.

Self-Care is Sexy

We perform better when we feel balanced in our body, mind, energy, and spirit. This week, I offer a variety of ways that you can access your own best self from the perspective of the Tarot. Join me for a quick QiGong exertion that moves stagnation and enlivens the body’s life force.

Then, choose among the elemental suggestions below for how you can enact another level of joyous healing.

Each of the elements of the minor arcana guide us in how we can take care of ourselves. A balanced life has some activity related to fire, water, earth, and air. 🔥🌊🌳🌬️

Consider today which elemental healing could give you a fresh feeling to rejuvenate your spirit.

Pentacles – Ground into the earth 🌱 with some time in nature or your garden. Cook a delicious meal. Build something. Clean.

Wands – Build a warmth 🔥 in your body with active movement until you sweat. Add creative expression with a dance off with a friend who loves your glow.

Cups – Art fills the heart. 💙 Take in the work of your favorite artist, explore a fresh vision from abroad, or get out the arts and crafts tools and make something. Inspire the feelings to flow and wash through you.

Swords – Breeze the wind 🌬️ of wisdom and knowledge through your mind. Disperse the stress by learning something new about history, science, or something intellectually stimulating. See it all from a new perspective.

I hope this helps ease you through your week. If your life is feeling like it needs some more beneficial guidance, please reach out to me to schedule a half-hour or one-hour tarot reading. You are worthy of the support you desire.

We are All Story Makers

We engage with our own lives through story making. You go through a break up, and you begin piecing together your experience in words that create scenes that define each person into a role they played. For how often we do this in our lives, it’s amazing we don’t talk more openly about the pitfalls and power of this act.

Tarot is an unraveling of our life stories. It is a tool to help you see the metaphors and meaning of your life lessons with more keen observation. When we see the messages through an objective source of symbols, it’s easier to forgive our foibles and rise up to our best selves.

This week, I share with you two new decks that envigorate the cards through storytelling. The Tarot of the Divine connects a unique myth or fairy tale from around the globe to each traditional tarot card meaning. InBetween Tarot has imagined a story that happens when we combine each card with it’s predecessor and successor in it’s place in the cards. Learn about these decks and ponder on how stories influence your own choices, and how you can better serve your highest good as a story designer.

Intuitive Decision-Making

We have a collective story that intuition and clairvoyance is only strong with some special people. The fact is that these are skills we all benefit from strengthening through practice, like any other expertise.

Most CEO’s claim to make the majority of their decisions from gut feelings. At Netflix, Reed Hastings is known as “the golden gut” for his ability to choose the right shows to green light. Each of us can also learn to listen to our body to become the best CEO of our own lives.

We each need this skill on a very direct level right now. Pandemic Fatigue is real. Decision fatigue is happening.

We have to decide which mask is the most necessary each time we go out.
We are deciding on candidates and laws that take time learn about to enact the best choices for our community.
We even need to be decisive in how we are managing all this stress and anxiety that the decisions create.

One of the best choices we can make is to take the time to practice mindfulness that allows our systems a break from the stressors.

In this short awareness exercise, you get the opportunity to slow down and breath and listen to your body.
More importantly, you learn a simple practice that can assist you in making decisions from your own deep wisdom on a regular basis. This awareness increases your ability to align with your gut and empower your intuitive skills

Treat yourself to the gift of internal listening skills that will enhance your own natural intuition and ease some of the stress load that you are carrying. You deserve this break.

If some of the decisions hovering over you need some added support, contact me for a reading.

Last week, I stepped on my stove and broke it. Yup. Stepped on it.
I was painting my kitchen, trying to get in the big project before retrograde strikes. I was tired and the paint fumes may have been getting to me. I noticed a spot that needed touched up. I went right for it, and the crunch of glass with the burst of an electrical pop combined at my foot.

Luckily, I only endured the tiniest cut on my toe, when I could have been on the way to an emergency room with a permanently damaged foot.
Luckily, I was about due to replace the old stove.
Luckily, I had some funds set aside for this.
Luckily, this meant that I got to buy my new electric device before mercury retrograde struck proper.
You have to look on the bright side of these moments.

I am not an astrologer, but I pay attention to their messages and observe my experiences in relation. The thing I have learned about retrogrades is that they bring with them hidden blessings. As Mars has been in Retrograde in Aries, I have faced my anger around political differences. I have been more aware of how to avoid conversations, and have apologized when I started fights. These issues are underlying our lives anyhow, may as well face them.

During Mercury Retrograde, we are asked to slow down and pause long enough to realign with a better trajectory forward. Fiercely and stubbornly driving ourselves the same way all the time is not the best possible path in any situation. If I would have rested away from the paint for a bit, I likely would have been more conscious of where I was putting my foot down.

This week, take in a reading for us all around how to manage this particular Mercury Retrograde that ends on election day in the US (HA!) and then sign up for a 10% discount for your own reading.

Pause. Reflect. Listen. Realign.
Take it easy for the next few weeks, and don’t start any unconscious battles until at least mid-November when Mars goes direct.

Ruth Bader GInsburg Embodies Justice

Learn about how the life and legacy of RBG captures the message of the Justice Card

I rarely cry for the loss of someone I have never met. This week, I found true grief strike through my heart as we lost the grace and power of Justice Ginsburg from both her place on the bench, and her presence on this earth.

But then, with the gift of technology, I found solace in consuming her interviews through the years. I gathered clips of my favorite moments that resonate with the Justice card, and compiled them to share with others who also adore her vivacious brilliance. What an incredible blessing we have here, to keep the wisdom of such incredible people in our grasp through books and recordings. This week, I am also not taking that for granted.

We call Judges, “Your Honor”, or “The Honorable”. Ginsburg owned that title with the core of her being. She listened to her opponents, and spoke carefully to capture the key points that would unlock their differences to help them see the wisdom in her perspective. She was dear friends with someone she disagreed with politically, Justice Scalia. She celebrated nuance, and spent hours to seek out the full perspective of each case to make the best possible judgement on it. She was Judicious in her very being.

Treat yourself to her voice through her interviews on YouTube and explore beyond. Let yourself be inspired to stretch your own view of what makes up the essence of the Justice archetype.

RIP Honorable Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, Ruth Bader Ginsburg

“My first Tarot reading with Jenna was exactly what I was looking for. She was on point with her sensitive intuition to guide me on the journey with the cards, which gave me a lot of insight to the questions I had. Jenna is…

Rebecca Nova Ballard

“Jenna’s reading was insightful and helped me lead to some conclusions I have been looking for. She was able to help me piece my plans together and put my mind at ease.”

Christopher Bonnichsen

Jenna has a way with the cards.  She has read my cards multiple times.  In those readings she has foreseen incoming relationships and the purpose they hold in my life, seen and directed things I needed to do to nurture current family and friend…

Talor Lee-Stiles

Sitting with Jenna for a Tarot reading was like meeting an old friend that knows me better than I know myself. She is a truly magical being with incredible intuitive powers. I left the reading with a lightness I hadn’t felt in so long and empowered…

Ethics of Reading Tarot

For both students of tarot and those who want to receive readings from me, I want to share a bit about the tenements I hold dear. I believe that any quality colleagues would as well.

Confidentiality – Anyone you read for should be allowed the automatic assumption that it is a private reading, and you will not share their life’s information with anyone once the cards are closed. I have the benefit of not remembering readings very well until I open the cards again for that person. I presume this is because I am using a different part of my brain while in these liminal spaces. Nonetheless, I do not share the details of what I learned in a reading with anyone afterward. If I have a mutual friend who shares something in relation to information I have learned, I make sure that I am extra cautious to respect their privacy.

Permission to Pull Cards – It is best to ask someone for an agreement to pull cards for them. I might pull cards to know how I can interrelate or help someone without asking first, but that is still a reading for myself. I feel that it is inappropriate to find out what is happening for someone without their request or knowledge. This is especially true if someone is afraid of the cards, has a religious rule about them, or have asked you not to.

Future prophecies – Be considerate that you state things in an open fashion that let’s the person feel in control of their life, and their response to their life circumstances. The movies do a terrible job of this, please don’t mimic the scary doomsayer style in most performances.

You do not have to say everything you see. I had a friend getting married who was going through hard times with her partner right before. I saw that it was not going to get better for a while, and was going to get worse before the wedding. I felt it was not helpful information to share, so I kept it to myself. Instead, I gave her advice as to how to work with him, as I saw this in the cards as well. She’s been happily married over ten years now. A few years I told her what I had not shared, and she was grateful that I didn’t tell her, since it might have made her give up on the struggle pre-nuptials.

Ego – It can be a lot when people approach you after a reading and share what it did for them. They say, “YOU were right when YOU gave me that incredible reading.” You can let it feel good, and be grateful, but remember that you were in service with the gift to support.You were a channel for messages to come through. They made their own best choices and heard the reading to their best outcomes. You did a good job being open to hearing and speaking messages that aligned with the great mystery. Fine work.

Remember that this is a humbling art form that you are honored to be graced with the experience of sharing. That is the best place to come from, in my righteous, yet reverential, opinion.
