The Witch and Her Strength

Jul 15th, 2018 | By

Strength isn’t about who can roar the loudest. It’s not about who can be the biggest bully. It reminds me of a story I heard as a child. The wind was arguing with the sun that he could make a little boys jacket come off first. The wind blew with all his might and the

My Current Life Status is Lacking The Chariot

Jul 8th, 2018 | By

The truth is I don’t really feel like the Chariot tonight. Some days, I just lack that, I got this attitude. And instead I sit on the couch with a bag of potato chips watching Big Brother on TV, while internally wondering if there is anyone out there who can hypnotize me not to eat

The Lovers…A Game Changer!

May 26th, 2018 | By

When I pull the Lovers card, I don’t immediately think of Marriage. I think, you found the love of a lifetime. A love so perfect that it completes you in some magnificent way no matter what. It may be for a fleeting moment or an eternity. I don’t care what card in the deck represents

The Witch and The Empress

Apr 28th, 2018 | By

If the Emperor logged on to Tinder or Christian Mingle or some other kind of dating site he enjoys browsing, then he would definitely stop on the profile of the Empress to get a better look and read her profile. She’s the “It” girl. He can see she is smart and beautiful. She seems really

Tarot Swords

Apr 21st, 2018 | By

In the Tarot, the Swords suit is associated with the intellectual realm–thoughts, communication, bias, opinions, analysis, logic and so on. The sword, itself, is a symbol of power and cutting, engendering dread in many a foe. And so it is with the Tarot Swords suit, which not only causes fear in many querents and readers–but
