You’re smart. If  a challenging circumstance pops up in your life, you will be able to handle it when the time comes. Both the ups and downs give life its richness. Don’t live it always expecting the worst. Open up to the happy possibilities laid before you right now.

Daily Tarot Reading for 10-16-2018 (Fool’s Journey)


The Tarot cards for today are the Fool, Death, and the World. I think it’s remarkable that these cards came out together in that order, so I’m going to spend a little more time on this reading than usual. So bear with me!

Minor Arcana
As you may know, the Tarot deck that I use (which is one of the most popular Tarot decks and has been around a long time) has 78 cards. Fifty-six of the cards are made up of the four suits (Wands, Pentacles, Swords, and Cups). As a group, these 56 cards are called the Minor Arcana. Generally speaking, the Minor Arcana represents things that happen during everyday life and temporary events.

Major Arcana
The other 22 cards as a group are called the Major Arcana. They are numbered from 0 to 21. In a reading, they usually point to major turning points in a person’s life or an important highlight.

When the 22 cards in the Major Arcana are laid spread out one by one in numerical order, it is said to tell the story of the the Fool’s Journey. It starts with the 0 card (the innocent Fool) who begins his spiritual journey by learning how to use the four elements with the 1 card (the Magician), then learning how to rely on intuition with the 2 card (the High Priestess), then learning how to deal with raw masculine energy with the 3 card (the Emperor), and so on.

The Fool’s Journey
In my mind, the three cards I pulled today  is a perfect summary of the Fool’s Journey — starting at the beginning of the Major Arcana with card 0, the Fool, onward to the middle of the Major Arcana with card 13, Death (which is a symbol of transformation), and ending with the last card of the Major Arcana, card 21, the World (which symbolizes the successful completion of a major milestone).

Today’s Reading
Astrologically speaking, we have been dealing with some potent energies this year, including lots of retrogrades and a powerful series of eclipses. Like the Fool, we could not know exactly how these energies would affect our lives, but we carried on. It is very likely that your life has changed in important ways this year, both outwardly and in the way you think and feel inside. This is what the Death card represents — important change in your life. The World card suggests that you have come to understand what these changes mean and as a result, you are wiser.

Even as you celebrate the completion of this cycle, know that the cycle always begins again. There is always something new to learn and aspects of ourselves to discover. Like peeling an onion, there is always another layer.

Have a great day.

Daily Tarot Reading for 7-30-2018


Good morning everyone! The Tarot cards for today are Death and the Magician. Death was the card we pulled on Friday for the lunar eclipse and the weekend. It shows up again today to remind us that transformation and change is not an instant process. So take time out to feel the effects of any recent changes and learn how to make them a part of your life.

With that being said, the Magician card shows that it is time to create new ideas for how you want to live your life as a result of these changes. You now have the tools to create magic. Use the fire of your passion, the clarity of your mind, and the depth of your emotions. Then ground these energies into the core of your being.

Have a magical day.

Daily Tarot Reading – Extended Weekend Report 7-27 to 7-29-2018


The Tarot card for today, Saturday, and Sunday is Death. The Death card is a symbol of transformation. This means letting go of old patterns, ways of thinking, and stagnant situations to make way for a brand new dawn. Today of course is the full moon/lunar eclipse in Aquarius that has been much talked about and anticipated. In astrology, the lunar eclipse is known to bring in the energy of change and transformation. The effects of the eclipse are far ranging, so you may have been seeing major shifts in your life for months now, and you may feel their effects for months to come. Keep in mind that these changes are advancing you to greater  heights and more happiness in your life. The goal is to embrace and accept change, and to realize how change can greatly benefit you.

Have an awesome day and spectacular weekend.

Daily Tarot Reading for 7-9-2018


Hi, all. Today I have another two-card reading — Death and the Nine of Cups.  This is actually an amazing combination. The Death card represents major endings and changes that transform. In other words, who you were before the change and who your are after are quite different.

Having to go through change and transformation can be a frightening thought. But consider the appearance of the Nine of Cups, which is often called the card of wish fulfillment. Combining this card with the Death card and the message is that the change being experienced is much needed and may have been wished for. In other cases, sometimes we don’t know what we don’t know, and when the change comes, we are surprised at how happy we feel about it.

Either way, we are coming up to a new moon and partial solar eclipse on Friday the 13th, no less. More so than with an ordinary new moon, this upcoming new moon can be a powerful reset button of endings and new beginnings — the kind that are beneficial to your soul’s evolution.

Have a wonderful day.

Daily Tarot Reading for 11-14-2017


Today’s card is Death. Experiencing change and transformation can feel like dying.

I recently rearranged a room in my apartment at the suggestion of a friend. Once we had moved everything around, every piece of furniture in the room was in a different location than it originally was. I complained bitterly about how this new arrangement was not going to work. I felt awful  and I resented my friend for suggesting the changes. I felt like I had betrayed myself for taking the suggestions.

I fought the urge to put everything  back the way it was. I went out for a little while and when I came back I felt better. The next day, I loved the new arrangement . My friend was right — it really did make a positive difference. It’s amazing how we hold on to the smallest things even when they are no longer useful. Most times, the pain of letting is well worth the rewards of holding hands with the future.

Daily Tarot Reading for 10-12-2017


The card for today is Death. It’s not as scary as it sounds. Think of it simply as change and transformation. It’s letting go of what no longer serves you. It could be a person, place, or thing. It could be as big as giving up a relationship or as small as giving up coffee (or maybe that’s a big thing too!). Perhaps you have an outdated idea that you are tossing away for a new outlook on life.

Whatever is changing in your life, it will be for the better. In the horizon, a new day is being born.

Daily Tarot Reading for 7-18-2017


Hi, all. Today’s card is Death, which is all about endings—as well as beginnings. Circumstances and attitudes that no longer serve your higher good will be fading out of the picture. Some examples are the end of a job (quitting, firing, retirement), the end of a relationship, or a decision to halt production on a project that doesn’t seem to be going anywhere.

But whether this is a sad experience or not depends on your attitude. If you were blindsided and didn’t see the changes coming, this may feel like an unwelcome change. But sometimes things happen gradually and it gets to the point where enough is enough. It simply could be a situation that has come to its natural conclusion.

Sometimes the Death card is a sign that you are the one who should let go, that you should move on because there is nothing more to be gained from the current situation. But sometimes this card shows that the decision is out of your hands. Something is leaving your life and you don’t have a say in it. Either way, the best way to handle the situation is to grieve the loss if you must but don’t resist the leaving. Holding on would be a waste of time.

Don’t forget that story is not over. The ending indicated here is making a way for a new beginning. Eventually, you will see, if you haven’t already, that this so-called death can be a transformation into something much better.
