I get asked often what it is like reading in my house, especially with six kids. So today I thought I might give you a peek behind the curtain and see what my day is like.
Self care takes many forms, and one of those is feeding your emotional piggy bank. Learning how to keep your account balanced is a helpful exercise, which I am going to show you now.
A lot of times people think of tarot as something fun, a way to get a peek at the future. But tarot has another side, one that is becoming more popular. That side is as a therapeutic tool. Learn how tarot LITERALLY saved my life. Please be warned that there are sensitive topics inside, so please proceed with caution. (POST UPDATED SINCE ORIGINAL POSTING)
As a tarot reader sometimes we think that we have nothing left to learn, and that we have everything in hand. Keep reading for details on a spread you should try regularly to grow.
There are a lot of tarot classes out there on the web, and some of them are free. But does free really mean better? Unfortunately in most cases no. A free tarot class will most of the time give you a glossing over of the tarot and then pretty much turn you loose.
What you should look for in a class is one that offers a lot of bang for your buck. Ask the following:
* Is it just the online course, or are there materials available?
* Is it self paced so you can take your time, or do you have deadlines to meet?
* Does it offer a variety of illustrations or videos to help those who are visual learners?
* Does it encourage you to do activities to help you grow?
and most important, does the instructor offer guidance after the course is completed or do they just take your money and run?
Some ask why even charge at all... My answer this is that if you have a good instructor then their class fee helps support the years of training they themselves went through, the time spent designing the class, the cost of webhosting, advertising, marketing and more. If you figure that the average GOOD instructor will spend upwards of 200 hours or more preparing the course then a modest fee seems appropriate.
We are in the process of setting up a new tarot learning platform. I expect to have it completed by the end of the summer

This has been a very difficult six months for me. I have really been struggling with my health, and as a result my tarot reading AND website have suffered. I am trying to get back to normal (whatever that might look like) and am getting things back to where they used to be. You may notice that there are less blog posts then before. That is because a lot of them were lost when we migrated from Shopify. I have done my best to recreate the ones I could, and am open to suggestions on any topics you might feel I missed in my absence.
Bear with me as I get things back up and running correctly. If you have any suggestions for things you would like to see me offer, or posts you think I should write then drop us a comment below.

I'm sitting here in an empty computer lab, surrounded by reminders that the holidays are almost here. Christmas used to be my favorite time of year when I was young. In fact, I would get so excited about Santa that every Christmas Eve I would spend 3/4 of the night in the bathroom puking my brains out. I am sure that my mother appreciated not being able to wrap presents and put them under the tree until 4am!
Now that I am grown and have children of my own I really wanted to make Christmas a big deal. It hasn't really worked out for me so far. With my ex-husband it was always more important to spend time either at his parents or his brothers house for Christmas - seriously curtailing my abilities to instill any family traditions of our own. So when I got divorced and subsequently remarried I told my self it was going to be different this time around. And oh, how desperately I wanted that. My new husband is totally on board with Christmas being a time for OUR family, so I do appreciate that. What I hadn't counted on was life throwing such curveballs at us. Curveballs like unemployment, losing our home at thanksgiving time, or our children being 2500 miles away. Each year it seems like some other wrench gets thrown in my perfect plans.
I want to make dozens of cookies with my daughter, decorate the house, have Christmas dinner with our whole family. I want a normal holiday with all the trimmings.... and I want my whole family there to enjoy it with. What would you have different about YOUR holidays? We'd love to hear what you would do different, or what advice you might have to make the holidays extra bright for those who are struggling this year.
