How are you coping in these crazy times?

As the world reels from its latest bout of horrifying news, it’s almost impossible to feel like the entire globe has lost its mind.  It’s enough to make you feel like hiding out in the remotest village you can find, or alternately wishing you really could be some kind of superhero with the power to […]

Monday Message: Blinded by the Light

This Monday I reached for my Psychic Tarot deck for enlightenment–and boy did I get it.  I picked 19–Light.  In a regular Tarot deck, this card represents The Sun.  This is one of my favorite cards as it vibrates with the energy of action, heat, light, incandescence (that is the second time today I have used […]
