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 »
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 »
It is so very cool what miracles can happen when we take the time to relax and become aware of our surroundings, and our psychic antenna is open to connect with those who are on the same frequency.
I was at the beach over the summer, sitting on my beach towel in a deeply blissful, meditative state of mind. I had my umbrella set up, and a cooler with some water and healthy snacks – totally prepared for a relaxing day of doing absolutely nothing!
I took some deep breaths and looked out over the horizon, and focused on the waves. I was allowing whatever personal spiritual messages might come to my awareness. I was very much connected to what spirit was wanting me to know. Whatever is meant to happen will happen, but only in Divine Timing. We can never force anything, but all good things do indeed come to those who relax and allow the ebb and flow to reveal everything in perfect timing.
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 »
As a Tarot reader through many seasons, I have seen for myself where interpretation, listening to instinct and understanding the true meaning behind the cards makes for a better and more rounded reading. But perhaps the Tarot in and of itself will want to play tricks on you. This too I have seen many times!
People tend to misunderstand the Tarot, its meaning, and more importantly, its true purpose. It was never intended as a fortune telling tool per se. It can only be through careful study and a willingness to open one’s mind and heart, that reading the Tarot can be truly successfully mastered. Yes, even to the point of predicting time frames – something clients love, of course, but which can be very tricky to predict. Reading the cards correctly and imparting correct advise is crucial when it comes to time prediction. Read the rest of this entry »

Tarot decks are one of the most popular divinatory tools today, and come in a variety of decks, ranging from traditional artwork, to angels, cats, Halloween decks, and more. Just about any subject you can think of, there’s sure to be a Tarot deck designed with that theme!
The Tarot tends to rise in popularity during times of great transition here on Earth. If we look back in history, during the Medieval and Renaissance periods, people were drawing upon the wisdom of the Tarot for help and guidance during times of confusion, fear, and uncertainty. The earliest decks found in Milan Italy and France date back to the 15th Century and are in now kept safely in museums in Italy. Read the rest of this entry »
The first weeks of a new year is always a happy occasion for me. A new year to me has a refreshing feel, as though everything that happened last year can be placed in a box and forgotten, even tossed out with the trash if I like, while the time ahead is still enticingly waiting for me to fill with new plans.
We make resolutions, and say, “Out with old, and in with the new.” Because of this a new year has a healing effect on us, helping us to put the past behind us and change ourselves to create a better future.
When re-creating ourselves, it helps to know what lies ahead. If we can glimpse future events, we can avert problems and embrace the good that is coming to us. We would also understand our limitations and strengths more, so we can plan effectively. Read the rest of this entry »
Last year was governed by the number 9.
There are other year formats in many countries, but for the Western world, the numerological influence of 9 was certainly present. The number nine is ultimately a good number. It is associated with the beginning phases of manifestation, where thoughts become form, as seen in the tradition of the Tarot. It is the consciousness we need to become creators on a personal level, as well as on a global scale.
In 2016 the global conversation and consciousness has changed slightly because of this 9 influence. There were changes politically and socially that have caused many people to take a second look at their own lives and their contributions to our society. Read the rest of this entry »
