I was hired to do a one-card faerie oracle reading this morning.  This is nice. I enjoy this deck and was reminded that I wanted to do more frequent readings for myself from it.  After some quiet time with peaceful reflection, I shuffled and drew a card for myself.

The Universe is loving me this week:

Your life purpose involves teaching others about healing and spirituality. It also notes that I should begin charging for my services, which I started doing about a month ago.

More confirmation that I’m on the right track!

And no, I’m not going to share every tarot reading I do for myself – that would border on over-sharing – but the ones that really speak to me may show up here.



Ultimate Fulfillment

Today’s tarot card:

King of Pentacles: Ultimate fulfillment, financial security, a life of luxury, determined, stability.


As I was growing up, mediums and psychics were part of my reality.  My grandmother, mother, and aunts made trips to Lilydale Assembly to ‘have their fortunes told’.  My sisters and I used to tag along, but were always determined too young to really participate.  I made my last trip when I was 15. I want to go back.

Twenty years later, I learned of a Saturday morning psychic event at a local spiritualist camp, Camp Chesterfield. A friend and I went. I don’t remember many details from that initial reading, but I do recall being all but overwhelmed by a feeling of connection with the other women in my family.  I returned for the next Saturday event and the one after that.  In fact, for over a year, I didn’t miss one.  I would journal the readings – every time – and notice some impressive themes.  Some, I’ll keep to myself for now, but I was told a dozen times, “you should be doing this.”  Eventually, I listened and bought a deck of tarot cards.

I’ve been reading for myself for years now; reading for friends for just a few months less than that.  Every morning, I’ll shuffle my deck and draw one card looking for a message for that day.  Sometimes it’s a warning, sometimes a gentle push in a direction I wasn’t heading in, but sometimes, like today, it’s a promise.

I’ve been moving forward with some great plans for Bats! meow… and I’ve quite enjoyed this little reminder from the Universe that I’m on the right track.
