The Star is one of the most brilliant cards in the Major Arcana of the tarot deck; It’s suck a powerful card and its one of my favorite. I know when this card shows up it’s a time of new energy and a time of new beginnings. Wishes are coming true and dreams are being fulfilled.
Looking at this card you often see a woman standing half in the water and half on the land, holding a cups pouring water on the ground and back into the ocean. She is often sky-clad and serene. She reminds us that we must walk the middle ground between worlds and it’s when we let down our guard, take of the layers and really step out into the unknown that we become filled up and whole.
When I see the star I instantly feel in touch with my spirit. She clears away the worn out and the heavy allowing only light to remain. I think that we are all trying to be in the light, the light of the stars and the moon. The spiritual light that has lived inside of us since the beginning shinning free… a forgotten lantern lit once again.
When you see the star you know that it is time to rest and just be at peace. There is nothing to be afraid of; there is nothing to bring you down. Even in the darkness you can find a soft and gentle glow. A guiding light will show you the way if you just look up and trust. The Star is asking you to surrender and trust.
I believe that The Star could easily be called the soul because she is the light that lives in all of us. She is the beautiful, pure and unchanged being that resides deep inside. When you look into the mirror, look past the years, the pain and the circumstance and see the gentle light, the windows to your soul, there lives the star.
Remember to always ask the guiding light of intuition to lead the way. Just close your eyes, shut out your fears and trust. The Star is about trusting the process, trusting your intuition and trusting Spirit. It’s through trusting the process that dreams come true!
“I was fearful of the darkness, I was fearful of the change. Then she took my hand and pulled me into the night. We danced among the velvet blankness of nothing. We danced through the storm; we danced back to the sea. We danced until the light cast everything else away.” –SM

There has been a light so desperate to shine. Something strange and mystical has brought it out and now the lights wont go down. In the midst of something tragic we must hold onto our souls. I keep reminding myself that nothing last forever and to just enjoy the road.
The poet in my heart cannot wait to see the plane. I am so enthralled to be leaving for London soon. Something there is going to change my life and enrich my soul. It may be a place, a stranger I meet or something I do. I have no idea what it’s going to be
… but I know it will be pure magic. My mom always taught me to trust my spirit regardless of how crazy it may seem. So here I go getting in touch with my inner gypsy.
There are a few loose ends to tie up. A few details to square away, but I know it will all work out. Like all other things in my life, I’ve basically said to the universe, “Hey if you want me to go… make it happen! I’m ready.” And I know that’s exactly how it will go. Nothing really has to be that hard, unless we let it.
Stevie Nicks new song “Italian Summer” really has me excited about London. It’s an epic ballad, about a summer love and all the changes that it inspired. I feel that London will be strangely similar. Maybe not a love affair with a person… but a love affair with my soul. That’s really all I care about now.
All I want in life is to be happy, to be free and to give my art to the world. My whole life I have felt that I needed to get away to recover something precious… maybe lost or just hidden. I know that I’ve been on the road to finding it for years now; maybe London will be the destination to this journey… or just another piece to the bigger picture. Who knows, I’m just ready to fly.
So here I am preparing to go. Trying to just live life. And everyday I remind myself that no matter what I must remain connected to my soul. In rain and shine… here or there…. It doesn’t matter as long as I know who I am in this story.
One day at a time I write a line to this epic story. Each character peculiar and exquisite. I have begun to find an appreciation for even the antagonist in life because they are the ones that remind us how powerful dreams and love can be. I would know nothing of myself if it weren’t for the challenges that have been thrown at me. I wouldn’t change anything because I love my story… so far.
Lets continue to be storytellers in this epic drama. I know that I am still finding my lines, sometimes I fumble over them and sometimes they just don’t feel right. But this is who I am. So once again I’ll step out on the stage and sing my song…
…don’t be afraid to follow along

I woke up not having much sleep. It’s hard sometimes at night to actually fall asleep even if my body and mind are tired because so many things start going through my head. I’m one of those people who constantly thinks about everything and when its time for bed… that’s when my mind decided to work the hardest.
Today I pulled a few cards for insight into the day and the energy around me and what I turned over was very interesting. First card that I had was the Ace of Hearts; those aces are relentless in following me these days. Following that card the 9 of Clubs and then the King of Spades.
The ace of hearts is a powerful card because it speaks of change and new beginnings. Aces are always cards that remind us of the powerful energy of whichever suit it resides in. This is a card that speaks to me about connections with people, relationships are changing and facets of my life with others will begin to die away. This card brings with it a storm of emotions that beg me to take a crucial look at my life and to see what or whom is really necessary for me to be happy.
The 9 of spades represent challenges and the search of truth. It’s the card of the seeker or someone who should start to seek a little more. I can see this card as a sign that I am standing at the edge of something, the door to a brilliant castle… wonders and possibilities waiting, if only I would knock. The 9 of spades highlights my apprehension to change and the things that lie in front of me. Though I am constantly enthusiastic about bringing new energy into my life, I tend to be a little resistant to it at fist.
I am very drawn to this card; very fascinated by the profound truth it holds. I keep hearing the words resistance and denial as I look at it. The closer I look, the deeper I feel, the more I realize that this card isn’t so much about inviting new energy into my life… its more about saying goodbye to the old and worn out.
The third card in this reading was the King of Spades. A fierce energy that has made it his purpose to abolish opposing forces. The King of spades stands as a guardian silently watching me, with a demeanor that chills to the bone and bites like fire. I know that he has come into my life to protect and cast away the things that have worked to block me and weigh me down.
It is interesting to me because the King of Spades is a very forceful energy at times, yet his focus makes him seem almost gentle. His force isn’t the type of egocentric and dominating energy that makes you feel small and worthless… it’s a mighty energy that makes you feel as if you are in the arms of a great protector whom will defend you regardless of fame or glory.
After my restless night last night, I realize that I am in the process of a great and awesome shift of thinking. I am learning to be in synch with my intuitive self and the Universe. I think I am restless because I know that deep inside I need to shake clean my spirit and allow my truest self to emerge. No more pretenses, no more holding back, only pure, raw and uninhibited living!

I keep fiddling with a new deck of linen finish playing cards that I bought the other day. I have a fascination with cards in general and I’ve been wanting to buy a deck of regular playing card for a bit now. I like the idea of holding something in your hands that to most people seems so plain and ordinary, but actually has many, many secrets to tell.
This seminally ordinary deck of cards has kept me entertained for the past few days.I just sit here at the table shuffling, flipping, observing and shuffling again. In doing this simple ritual I have had a few “jumping” cards… and over and over again I seem to get the Ace of Diamonds. A wonderful card to get I might add.
The ace of diamonds is a card of new beginnings and new projects. Its a card that tell us we are on the path to success, prosperity and security. This card is often a sign from the universe that the things you have worked so hard to dream up, believe in and manifest are now coming true. Diamonds are beautiful stones created from heat, stress, pressure and time… often the very things we put into our goals. The ace of diamonds is the herald of good energy and new opportunity.
I love that this card keeps appearing in my life because its totally relevant. I am in the process of planning a trip to London for work… looking for housing and saving to pay for it. I am immersing myself in designing. And I have been seeing so many things growing and expanding with my readings and writing. Its powerful right now… the alignment of intention and manifestation.
I continually practice gratitude and faith in Spirit knowing that each thing shall fall into place and that I am deserving of the absolute best! I think that’s the Ace of Diamonds reminder to us, “The best is yours for the taking… just open the door and invite it in.”

Last night was wonderful. I was invited to do readings at a small boutique called Ottoman Imports in Covington, Ky… for Ladies Night Out! It was a blast. The shop is a quaint little place, filled with flowing scarfs reminiscent of Morocco and beautiful silky garments beaded and embroidered like old kimonos. It felt nice to be in a place that vibrated with such color and passion. And the court yard where I did readings… was even more etherial.
The night start with a sense of electric in the air, that feeling before a storm as if you have your hand on the pulse of the great mother. The wind swirled around me and the night fell gently on our shoulders inviting us to dance with the mysterious characters of the tarot. I was out back in a small and inviting courtyard, under a spacious canvas tent. I made sure I brought a fabulous scarf, one of my favorite decks of cards and the openness to touch the wisdom of the universe.
People started making their way into the shop, escorted to the courtyard by the lovely owner. Sitting down to take a peak at what may be going on “out there”. Right before laying out the cards I always get this surge of energy, part anxiety and part anticipation. Its not every day you sit down for an arranged meeting with spirit… there is something reverent about the whole experience. I think everyone last night knew it too.
Conversing with people through the night, many card and many stories told… it was wonderful. Eventually we had to relocate the reading table to the inside of the boutique because the wind decided he wanted to be a little more wild than we could handle. It was great though. Right before we went inside, the wind had picked up jerking the canvas tent from side to side like a helpless paper bag. But the woman whom i was reading and I just laughed and laughed… we thought it was grand. But for our safety we made our way in.
The inside was just as magical and people didn’t seem to mind the change of scenery, besides you can read no matter where you are… I’ve read on busses in Mexico and the busy streets of big cities. We marched on reading and chatting, peaking and planning. All of the people whom I read for were amazing, wonderful stories and wonderful wisdoms. You know the cards talk to everyone who is at the table… regardless of who shuffled.
A duo of ladies came at one point and they loved there readings. They cried, they laughed, they hugged, they got sassy, they told stories… and they cried again. Later I heard that they kept crying all the way down the street. The one woman was asked if she was okay and her response was, “I am so amazing right now… so happy” and on and on she sobbed. Readings are cleansing for sure.
The night ended with a group of 5 wild and wonderful ladies. All goddesses in their own right and the best of friends. We sat circled around a small table in the shop front of this boutique watching the night walkers pass the window as we took one last walk in the wonderland of tarot. One by one they asked their questions and shuffled their cards… It really was one big reading part. 5 women, one reading. They were all just listening so that they could “help” each other remember their session. So fun.. so so fun!
We said our goodbyes and I headed home. It was such a magical night to be out. The wind and the rain and the energy was just alive and inspiring. I cannot wait to do it again. There is so much excitement in groups of people. Being there it really inspired me to get myself in gear to be doing classes… so look for that soon
All the best,
