Tarot Testimonials

It’s BRAG time! I know Pride can be a killer when taken to extremes, but a little bit of pride is essential to one’s work, of course; and I am PROUD of what I do and have done in order to help people take control of their lives by helping them to explore underlying issues and…

Celebrating Sabbats: Beltane

So until recently I knew nothing about Beltane except that it is May Day. I recall being taken to a village fete as a child by my Nana, and looking forward to seeing the older girls dancing with their ribbons around a May pole. I recall the traffic being terrible, with it being a bank…

Book Review: King Billy and the Royal Road

When I was invited to review this book, my heart leapt for joy.  You see, by profession I am a primary school teacher, so I just love children’s books. And I love tarot, so the thought of a children’s book based on tarot and aimed at the 5-8 year old market excited me to the…

Celebrating Imbolc

Since before I ever had heard of Sabbats, I celebrated them.  My husband and I had constant debates about the seasons… I was convinced Spring starts at the end of January or beginning of February, when I would see new growth on my daily walks.  And it made sense to me, because it was exactly…
