Lost Crystals

A tarot student asked my advice about crystals. He purchased two amethyst crystals and a clear quartz. He lost one of the amethysts while out with a friend on Halloween weekend. Then during the first week of November, he misplaced the other two crystals. So he did a one-card reading about this, and pulled the Death card. He very rarely gets the Death card so was challenged about how to interpret this. Because of the Death card, the crystals are gone and are not coming back. He won’t find them. But to let go and be...

Lift Your Spirit!

One of my tarot students had a sudden accident and hurt her back when she tripped over her dog (a lovely lab) who always follows her around. This Fire Monkey year is the time of accidents and injuries, not lingering illness like in Snake or Rabbit years. Plus her accident occurred during the recent Mercury retrograde. She selected 3 tarot cards, one each for Body, Mind, and Spirit. Body and Mind were good cards for her, but not Spirit. (This tarot spread for health is on page 164 of Introduction To Tarot.) So her spirit was...
