City Mystic Spring, Part 2- The Long Haul

City Mystic Spring, Part 2- The Long Haul

    Last time I told you all about my sad ride down to the pearly gates of SFO, only to be turned down at the door. By that time I was already pretty tattered internally from all the change happening around me and within me. I didn’t tell you, however, about the spiritual urgings that primed me before that day. Let’s go back to Reader’s Studio for a moment… After writing my last blog entry I went back and revisited that intention card I told you about. What I wrote was a little different in wording than I thought, yet interesting. My intention for the weekend was to develop “Total self-trust, step fully into myself, completion of self-integration.” Yeah. Much taller order than I even remembered. That’s me though, always looking for the tallest mountain to climb and assuming that no matter what, I can climb it. Leave it to a Capricorn Sun conjunct South Node in the Fifth House… The thing about Reader’s Studio is that it was good for me, REALLY good for me on a number of levels. Not only did I earn back my costs (which were substantial), get the word out about City Mystic, learn a TON about Tarot, meet my personal Tarot heroine Mary K. Greer (whom I had the tremendous pleasure of being placed next to in the marketplace), make wonderful new friends with many kindred spirits, and get to bring my City Mystic • New York baby home, but I also conquered something within myself that surfaced a long time ago. Something I was not able to reckon with until...

Learn to Read ANY Tarot Deck at ANY Level- Free Tutorial

No experience reading Tarot? NO PROBLEM! This mini-lesson is enough to get you started, AND to get your own personal key of meanings in development for you to build a robust reading practice on. Every other Tuesday I co-teach Tarot Techniques with Mindy Galloway at the Enchanted Tree Organization. We facilitate an eclectic group of readers at various levels of Tarot experience in a lesson and reading exchange most sessions. It helps to get the readings flowing with some basic understandings or relationships with the cards, so I put this little video together for folks who might want to attend but don’t yet have a strong understanding of the card meanings just yet. No matter where you are in the world, if you’re planning on attending a Tarot Techniques session or not, this video was designed with the beginning Tarot enthusiast in...

Real Life Witch School- An Interview with Urban Goddess, Author of Path of the Witch

Real Life Witch School- An Interview with Urban Goddess, Author of Path of the Witch

Hi Friends! This fall I’ve been infused with a much-needed magickal re-awakening. Over the last few years in my Tarot work I took a necessary intellectual turn on my path as I learned, studied, practiced and researched the nuts and bolts of Tarot; history, methodologies, reading systems, practices… you name it! I was on an adventure of Tarot understanding in a worldly sense so that I could better communicate the abstract feelings I had about Tarot to the world at large, no matter what the background or experience level of the person I might be speaking with. Having a Libra moon in the third house conjunct Pluto, I receive a deep joy from thick research that I’ve come to understand is somewhat unique. Give me a pile of the right Occult encyclopedias and history books, a few days to myself, a box of tea bags and some easily-prepared food, and I might just come quite close to one (of many) version of my own heaven-on-Earth experience. It fills me up emotionally, as ironic as that sounds, and over the course of the last three years I am thankful that I’ve had such heavenly, full experiences on multiple occasions. After pouring all that knowledge and research into something as tangible as a Tarot deck, I found shortly after the close of our Kickstarter campaign that I was craving a new round of personal, interior magickal work and study. Throughout the month of October I could feel the call in my bones and knew somehow or other a renewal was coming, though I had no idea from where in the physical world....
