rosy lens

How do I solve my cups problems? I throw pentacles at them. Yesterday I went to my local indie bookstore and picked up two new tarot books as well as the Lioness Oracle Tarot deck. I’ve been circling around this deck for a while; the art is so stunning and juicy that you can’t look…

drive or drag

I have barely touched my cards in the last few weeks; in true Chariot year fashion, I jumped on a new lease and am now packing up my Taurus homebody life. (Sometimes to my chagrin — I packed all of my tea and then immediately wanted a cup of tea I could no longer have….

side-by-side: the world

January’s just about wrapped up, so it’s time to look back at my January card from my¬†2019 twelve month spread — the World. In my day job, January is very much a month of tying up loose ends from the previous year; it’s very common for me to have to fix the autocorrect from 2019…

side-by-side: the chariot

I spent some time in December building a Google doc that used Mary K.
