The Month Ahead Tarot Spread- June 2021

The positions are as follows: 1- Our current energy/the energy we enter the month with2- Goal or obstacle. What’s crossing our path?3- The advice. How might we overcome our obstacles?4- What we need to...

June 2021 Astrological Transits

It's June, friends! Happy Pride! Hurray for the start of Summer! We’re moving from social breezy Gemini season into homey, nurturing Cancer season this month. Gemini’s mutable energy, which is kind of flaky, will still be around for the first half of June, and with Mercury currently in retrograde until the 22nd, it’s important to watch how we’re communicating. Someone cooler than me came...

Earth Day 2021

“We’re all connected to each other biologically, to the Earth chemically, to the rest of the Universe atomically.” -Carl Sagan Admittedly, there’s a lot going on in the world right now, so celebrating Earth Day might not be at the top of your To Do list. Globally, we see climate change, a pandemic, and economic disparity abound. Many countries are in conflict or posturing for conflict....

Moon in Pisces: Self Care

The moon is in Pisces this weekend heightening all the feels. Our focus should be on self care, but what the crap is "self care" anyway? Self care is when you act in a way that promotes your physical, mental, and emotional well-being. It looks different for everyone. Maybe cleaning and organizing your space will enhance your calm and make you feel relaxed and accomplished. For some, rigorous...

Covid 19 Update 2

In the Kansas City area, cases of Covid 19 are on the rise. For your safety, and the safety of my family, I am canceling in person tarot readings for the foreseeable future. Unfortunately, this includes Sunday readings at Weston Wine Company. I don't want to do this, but it's for the best right now. I will return when things have settled down. I will still be offering tarot readings online via...

2020 Election Projections

Let me just start by saying that my philosophy on tarot readings is that they’re projective, rather than predictive. The cards show where energy is heading, and much like the line from Terminator 2, I believe "there is no fate but what you make for yourself." That being said, my tarot mentor Theresa Reed (The Tarot Lady), has encouraged readers to put their predictions out there. Don’t worry...

Reading Tarot- Where do I start?

That’s an excellent question, and there’s no better time to learn about reading tarot than when you’re socially distancing in a pandemic. It can be overwhelming dipping your toe into the tarot pool. What’s the best starter deck? Do I need to be given a deck for it to work? What books should I buy? How did Allison Sasso, my favorite tarot reader in Kansas City, get started? Read on, my...

Covid 19 Update

OMG 2020. Omg… I’d ask the cards what’s next, but I don’t want to know. I’d rather live by the “no fate” philosophy of Terminator 2, “There is no fate but what we make”. That being said, I’ve been trying to make the best of Covid 19. I started Tarot Treks which were little articles on the meanings of the cards, but I lost steam. Do let me know if you’d like to see more, but...
