Two cards, two teachers

I’ve been having a pretty rough stretch lately, particularly at that intersection between my professional and personal lives. Yesterday, I noticed that I hadn’t actually looked at my cards for more than a month, which is a pretty atypical stretch me, and probably a sign that I’m uncomfortable with something…

Tarot Allies galore

I recently returned from a much-anticipated and somewhat-feared solo retreat at Christ In The Wilderness, a retreat center located near Stockton, Illinois.

Tarot ally #1
