ADV Tarot: 8/31

I’m teaching an advanced tarot class to my coven mates. (We do a basic one in the year-long class.) Right now we’re getting used to the cards by pulling one every day.

Unpacked . . .

. . . and nearly tidy to boot. I promised pictures, and here they are. First, the guest room: Clean, calm. Just where you want to lay your head down for a nap, right? Then, my office: Makes you just want to come in and read in the sun for awhile, doesn’t it? Then, John’s […]

What I Look Like

Hair! (I’m told it’s kid of cute.) Energetically I’m doing well. I still get tired long before I used to, and I’m not sleeping through the night, which isn’t good for my energy. Today I am not doing well at all. I got some bad news that I am struggling with. I don’t mind the […]
