Some people wake up with the sun, do an hour of yoga and meditation, bathe with chamomile flowers and eucalyptus, and announce their goddess identity to the universe.
I'm definitely not one of those people.
I wake up to a soon-to-be one year old poking my face, rushing out the house with messy hair, and a whole mess of chaos for my day.
Waking up slow and easy like the goddess within me would love to do sounds like heaven.
There's definitely a way to do that, even when you're off the rails like me.
When I first started reading tarot, I didn't know what the hell I was doing.
I got a deck from my roommate, the Enchanted World Tarot, and just was dumbstruck.
What does all this crap mean?
There's a meditation DVD and book?! But how do I meditate the right way?
Why are there swords stabbing this man?!
I didn't understand the cards at ALL.

You've seen the headlines. You've heard the stories. As soon as you see that sign for fortune telling or palm readings, you book it.
Here's why you shouldn't.
Ever since my daughter started having a steady bedtime routine, my husband and I would take her to the library on campus and pick a few books. Some were well received while others were thrown or ripped up. It happens.
This last trip to the library, I decided to take a moment away from baby and find some books I'd like to read. One that stood out was Witchcraft on a Shoestring: Practicing the Craft With Breaking Your Budget by Deborah Blake.
Here's my take on it.
You sat down and read/watched/went through a tarot reading with an intuitive coach.
You got to the root of your problems.
Maybe you even got some steps to start taking to change your life!
You walk out into the world once more and...what now?
I'm in love with all different types of music. And I'm in love with tarot cards. Who says we can't enjoy the best of both worlds.
Here's my list of theme songs for the Major Arcana!
As apart of International Tarot Day, I'm joining a blog hop! We're covering every card in the tarot deck, going over how amazing they are, and more!
What's your card?
The Ten of Cups! So let's get started:
Say you know fifteen people. You invite them over for dinner so everyone sits at the table. You set out candles, the best china, Jill Scott's singing about family in the background; you brought out the works. While everyone's eating, every person is talking at the same time. Just jabbering away.
How much of that entire dinner conversation did you pick up? Maybe the couple people sitting next to you but Bobby and Jill all the way down on the other side didn't hear anything. Just like you couldn't hear them.
Sometimes when you go in for a tarot reading, there's an expectation of what you can ask. There's a belief that you can ask any question and get time and date answers and nothing can change them.
That's just not the case.
One process of tarot reading is to sit and answer a list of questions in a spread, put the cards in a specific layout, and there's a completed reading.
Through my years of reading tarot and oracle cards, I've found a method for finding questions that get to the source of the problem for clients, finding the answer, and providing steps on how to get there is much more effective.
