Although I do not use lithomancy in my readings, I have been drawn to gems, precious stones and crystals since I was in my teenage years.
When I was in high school, I would fancy the gems in the shopping mall jewelry shops. I would save up my allowance and job money to buy a genuine sapphire ring I could afford, since it is my birthstone.
Sapphire is considered one of the most precious stones, along with ruby, emerald, and diamond. It is also very durable, second only to diamond on the Mohs hardness scale. Named after the scientist who invented it, this scale of hardness is based on the ability of one mineral to scratch another. Read the rest of this entry »
You know how sometimes in life you get a feeling about something, but you aren’t quite able to put it into words? Well, that’s how the Tarot assists me when I read for people. It helps me bridge the everyday life with the esoteric, and translate psychic messages in a practical way.
Sometimes it is as simple as the actual picture on the card having a single element that pops up for me, screaming to be noticed. Read the rest of this entry »
Palmistry, chiromancy, or palm reading, is one of the oldest methods of foretelling the past, present and future, by reading the lines of the hand. It is a form of divination practised all over the world. The earliest recorded evidence of this divination technique has been found in Asia, from where it spread to the rest of the world.
Each person has unique lines and shape of hand. Thus the use of fingerprinting in identifying individuals. In palmistry, the lines and shape of the hands indicate a person’s character, marriage, how many children they will have, as well as the foreboding of positive and negative life events.

In private sittings, I always commence with a short color reading. I ask customers to select four from my collection of 13 small, colored bottles. The placement of the client’s selection in position one, two, three and four each represents a different aspect of their pathway and challenges in life.
Whether the rest of the reading involves the Tarot, throwing the bones, angel cards, or numerology, the synergistic connection with the colors, and the remainder of the reading, is always uncanny. Not to mention that it gives a very ‘colorful’ start to a reading session.
I have a regular client who is a wonderful and highly respected healer. I have always felt that she channels during her healing sessions, as many of the clients she has sent my way praise her for the words of healing and wisdom they received during sessions with her. I feel that she uses subtle ways to incorporate her psychic ability into her work, without ‘spooking’ her clients. There are also a select few with whom she feels, intuitively, that she is able to discuss deeper spiritual, and even past life issues. Read the rest of this entry »
We have all checked a daily weather forecast at some point. Will it be hot or cold? Will it rain or snow? But did you know that a different kind of ‘weather’ affects our lives just as much? We are also impacted by the ‘cosmic weather’ – the astrological positions of the planets and other heavenly bodies, as well as related phenomena, such as eclipses, solstices, equinoxes, aurora borealis (Northern Lights), solar flares, and meteor showers.
The recent “Great American Eclipse” was a large-scale event which many people observed. But what did it mean? Solar eclipses represent the shadow of the Moon (the yin, feminine, and intuitive) obscuring the Sun (yang, masculine, and logical). An eclipse therefore creates the illusion of twilight in the middle of the day. From a metaphysical perspective it is the perfect time for added insight, previously hidden knowledge, and inspired ideas. Read the rest of this entry »
For example, the Three of Swords represents heartache, sadness, loss, grief. However, let’s say it comes up along with the Chariot, which represents moving forward with success. Together, the context of these two cards might shift to something like moving beyond sadness. However, this meaning might shift even further, based on the rest of the cards in the spread.
Reading single cards only, would be like trying to convey a message with just one word. Instead one should think of a Tarot spread as representing a full sentence, while each card represents a word in that sentence. Read the rest of this entry »
‘Forgettery’ is a game we all engage in from time to time. We see this game played out in relationship dramas, career concerns, or even just in a sense of generalized anxiety. It occurs when we forget who we really are, and find ourselves out of alignment with our Soul.
It can manifest in feelings of not being enough – a victim, not smart enough, being broken, or disconnected and separate from others. In my daily Tarot card draws, it often comes up for me as the Star card reversed, or maybe the Eight, or Nine of Swords.
So what happens when we find ourselves here? The first step out is to recognize what is happening. Once we can acknowledge this ‘not-so-good’ feeling, we can sit with it for a while and then recognize that this feeling is coming from our thoughts… and thoughts can be changed. We are deserving and worthy of everything we desire. Why not? We can heal this. Read the rest of this entry »
Some time ago, I was sifting through my box of notes and papers collected over the years, and among all the documents and media cuttings, I found a list which describes the symbolic meaning of various colored feathers. Finding the list was a lucky coincidence. Or was it?
My husband and I live in a rural area outside a small town in South Eastern Spain. The people here are very friendly. Yet, without intending any disrespect, it is unlike many beautiful Spanish towns. I guess you could say that ours is somewhat soulless? It certainly is devoid of much in the way of any natural beauty, or cultural architecture. Another thing we don’t see much of either, is bird life.
More recently, I was thinking hard about an upsetting situation, while leaving the town hall. The outlook of the problem I was dealing with seemed bleak. But, as I left the building and turned a corner, I looked down and there was a beautiful snow white feather! A sign, or another coincidence? Read the rest of this entry »
