When I was very young I talked to people who were dead. I also knew things without being told, and I was interested in things that children, who grew up like I did, shouldn’t be. My mother’s religion states that the patriarch of the home is also the spiritual leader of the home. To her that also meant that women do not have the right of divine prophecy. My gifts and talents were not only not fostered, they were also frowned upon and I remember several instances when my mother or father would tell me I was being ridiculous and change the subject.
As a teen I began to study and practice Numerology, Astrology, Reflexology and Bio-feedback. They were considered sciences by my family and therefore acceptable. These practices were therefore encouraged – apparently they made me a better, happier person. Read the rest of this entry »
The High Priestess is the third card in the Major Arcana but is numbered as ‘2′. It’s because The Fool is associated with and numbered as ‘0′. The empowerment and insight shown in The Magician needs its’ other half, or female counterpart, the high priestess to realize its’ full potential.
While The Magician works with his magical tools laid out in front of him, the High Priestess possesses the gift of inner magic, or intuition. This is one of the cards that are associated most strongly with intuition, destiny, and psychic ability. This card is associated with the Moon and also represents the strength, insight, and divine wisdom associated with the feminine energies. Read the rest of this entry »
When it comes to the Tarot, many people have a lot of reservations and even fears. They imagine old women sitting at a table with a crystal ball predicting doom, death and despair for their unfortunate client. Others believe the Tarot to be some kind of satanic fortune-telling tool that goes against the will of God and brings demons to their doorstep.
The list goes on and on about the suspicions and fears many have about the Tarot. But the truth is the Tarot is none of these things. Tarot cards are less of a fortune-telling tool and more of a guidance system. Their rich imagery tells a story and that story is the tale of each of our lives. The first card in Tarot is the Fool. The Fool represents the incarnated soul in the earth realm. The other cards that follow are all people, places and states of mind and spirit that the incarnated soul will encounter on its journey through this world. The Fool, or incarnated soul, represents each and every one of us in this life and tells the story of every individual. Read the rest of this entry »
Many online psychics use a divination tool to make it easier to give an accurate psychic reading in the shortest amount of time. That is why I am always surprised when I get a 6-minute call come in and the first thing the person says is, “Do you need my birthday?”
I have been doing Astrology readings my entire life; my mother raised me to think that everyone’s mother read Astrology. Therefore, I know that having six eight-hour days, 48 hours, is about what it takes to do a really well-researched, customized Astrology reading – not six minutes.
Yes, modern technology does make it possible to do a “cut and paste” Astrology reading using modern software in about 15 to 30 minutes, but certainly not six! The best I can do is some general comparisons between two people or overall comments, but not a custom reading. Read the rest of this entry »
I have noticed that when a client calls me in an agitated state, their questions and fears will dominate the reading. In fact, I will actually pick up on the questions they are about to ask! This is not the same as ‘a bad energy’ but simply my picking up on their frantic, frustrated or anxious feelings during a psychic reading.
So please be aware of this when you call, and please calm and steady yourself for the reading.
I pick up on someone else’s empathic imprint, but to some extent it is based on our mutual connection. I need you to be calm and centered. If you are angry with your partner, I will not be able to pick up all of the gentler and more caring connection to your partner. It is my opinion that your partner’s readability of thoughts can sometimes be subtly influenced (improved ) by our letting go of angry energy. Read the rest of this entry »
Recently, I had the pleasure of doing a mediumship reading for a lady whose husband had passed to spirit after 60 years of marriage.
She told me during the consultation that she wanted her husband to confirm something very important to her. Immediately, my guides said, “Yes, August 17th”. As I communicated this message to her she cried with tears of joy, saying that they had lost their son several years earlier. His birthday was August 17th and the confirmation that she required was that her husband had been reunited with their son in spirit. Read the rest of this entry »
The Magus (or Magician) is the second card in the Major Arcana. It follows the Fool, and symbolizes insight, power, creativity, and wisdom. The fact that these two cards follow in this order shows that taking a risk brings greater insight and helps us find our proverbial wings.
When this card comes up in a reading it symbolizes new endeavors and feats of willpower. It’s all about having the insight and knowledge needed to see where and how change can be accomplished. This card often carries a message that you’re in an empowered position and able to shape your world or reality to what you need it to be. What stands out most is the aspect of will or willpower and harnessing that to accomplish your goal. The Magus says that anything is possible, but willpower is needed to set further change in motion.

As a visual artist I have always been fascinated by the imagery on traditional Tarot cards. My first Rider-Waite Tarot deck felt so solid – 78 cards in a one-inch stack. They were thin, but sturdy and smooth so it was easy to shuffle them. Over time a Tarot deck picks up energy and can grow in thickness to two inches or more.
The earliest appearance of the cards arguably occurred in the 14th Century as playing cards. The symbolism had to be kept secret, because doctrines outside of church law were prohibited.
From the first time I used them my intuition immediately pinged on different energies when I looked at each one of the cards: optimism, excitement, balance. It was a spontaneous, deep spiritual energy coming from my core to consciousness. I used this method of relating to the cards long before I bought any guidebooks. Read the rest of this entry »
