Rebel Empath

I like to live on the edges. There is freedom there. And what that means is I’m not constrained by the ways things have been done or the ways people think they ought to be. Even in choosing to do out of the box things with my life, I do them in rebel ways. I get along really well with…

Tarot is a Bridge

In 2012 I was finishing my Ph.D. and I found myself building a bridge across a cliff – that was what starting a business instead of becoming an academic felt like. Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined where this path would lead me and how much joy, enchantment and wonder I would experience along the way. Tarot cards…

Tarot as a Portal to Higher Consciousness

The need to find rational answers to magical questions is pretty human I think – we are taught to value mainly what is measurable to us in our human experience and for many people it takes time, courage and some effort to reclaim a sense of enchantment and a belief in magic for themselves. I also think that it is…

Soft Lessons of the Hermit

Lately I’ve been holding my drum up to my heart, playing it with my eyes closed and simply feeling the sound flow though every part of my body. I’ve been reading long into the night and curling up next to the fire (no more Youtube videos of fireplaces for me! …you do what you must when you live in an…

The Hanged Man and the Equinox

The turning of the wheel at the equinoxes are times when I feel most alive. I expereince huge inner shifts, and can literally feel the old stuff falling away. With each turning I discover something new about myself…that turns out to be something very old. In this post I share how you can embrace the energy of the Hanged Man…

Sticking My Tongue Out at My Inner Critic

Earlier this week I wrote to you about believing in fairies and how my inner wise self asked me to. Well, my inner young one has never been happier but my inner critic has had a few things to say to me. Then I drew a card. It’s a gorgeous card from the Ostara Tarot. I only have the app because…

Interview with Joanna Powell Colbert

It’s been an exciting day over here! I interviewed Joanna Powell Colbert about the Gaian Tarot! Holy Moly! I think my goofy screenshot says it all! It was such a great pleasure and honour to speak with Joanna. Her beautiful spirit shines through all of her work. In this interview Joanna and I chat about the new Schiffer edition of the…

Temperance

there is nothing special here. just an ordinary day the crunch and clink of a cat eating his food, incessant checking and re-checking of Facebook, catching my breath from a day of moving. will I ever breathe the same way again? I brew tea with herbs that are meant to put me to sleep, after bathing with lavender and the chaos…

Clearing a Tarot Deck

A few days ago I received a pre-owned Daughters of the Moon Tarot deck by Ffiona Morgan in the mail. This feminist, woman positive, circular deck has been on my wish list for many years, and I’m so happy to finally be able to work with it. This is the first time I have ever had a used deck, and I decided…
