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...

Magick is Real

“Duh,” say the witches as everyone else rolls their eyes.Hear me out. When I dive into a subject, I dive pretty deep before coming up for air to share my findings, and the deeper I dive into the “woo woo” arts, the more I think it’s all real. I know I’m losing people already, so let me clear some things up. I’m a scientifically minded person. I listen to the scientific community,...

Tarot Treks: Knight of Cups

Get a load of the hottie bo-body that is the knight of cups. What do you see when you look into this dreamboat’s eyes?   I brought you some coffee…Swoon. Where the pages represent more youthful energies, fresh ideas, messengers, and the beginnings of personal journeys, the knights are already on that journey, and ready for action. Knights are a little undisciplined, even extreme in...

Tarot Treks: Page of Cups

The page of cups is a court card. Court cards are the pages, knights, queens, and kings of each suit and can represent the energy of a situation, people in your life who reflect that energy, or in the case of pages, can be messages or messengers. What do you see as you look at the page of cups? Kiss me you fool! An escapee from a renaissance fair is bemused by the fish in their cup. “Who put...
