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)
Reading the cards I like to convince myself that I can see most things coming, but at the end of the day life has a real twisted way of knocking you on your ass when you least expect it. What do you do when the cards tell you what you don't want to hear?
As long time readers you might have noticed some changes around here. Or maybe you are a new reader and aren't sure what the site used to be before. Either way, check out the latest news and even enter to win a $25 Visa/Mastercard gift card this month.
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.
At the root, the protest in Charlottesville started from a very simple place. The statue of Robert E Lee was going to be removed - and Lee Park where it had resided since 1924 to be renamed Emancipation Park. But by the end of the day, lives would be lost and people around the country were at each other's throats. I'll start by warning you right now, before you read any further, that I voted for Donald Trump in our last election. If that bothers you then you may not want to continue reading. But if you are willing to be open-minded join the conversation.
It has been a doozy of a couple of weeks around here. We had so much planned for June - from the release of our EmpressBiz classes to some great new content. Unfortunately we got a call from Vermont (where our family is) that my stepdad had passed away.
I wanted to share some info about me and my town to help you get to know me a little better.
We moved to Tucumcari in 2012. Ok, moved here is sort of an understatement. The truth is we broke down here and just fell in love with the town. This is a town that time forgot for sure. Want to know more? Click read more to keep going.
Here at Tucumcari Tarot I work really hard, not only with my clients here but on other platforms. I work to help them know how to spot scams - but did you know that we as readers have to watch out too? Read more about what happens when you forget that you have to watch out for scams yourself as a reader.
