Tarot Tuesday on a Thursday because time is an illusion and HAVE YOU NOTICED THE MOON LATELY???

Wow, y’all really let me get away with skipping Tarot Tuesday, huh? I’ll admit, in the absence of a regular routine, my concept of time has been completely distorted! It feels like just yesterday we were talking about the Hanged Man, but that was over a week ago! Anyway, welcome back to your Tarot Tuesday, on a Thursday.

Last night’s epic full moon in Scorpio really captured my full attention! Sometimes I don’t feel much during the buildup towards the full moon, but throughout the week I became increasingly aware of a palpable intensity in the air. Turns out I wasn’t alone; several friends have reached out to me describing a particular feeling of restlessness, passionate energy, and drive to DO something! So it sounds like the perfect time to discuss one of my favorite cards, THE MOON!

Tarot readings for the people!

Well hello there! Here we are again. Another day, huh?

Today in San Francisco, we received word that our stay-at-home orders will continue for at least another month. And while it has become clear that we are all sooo over being in time-out, it is also painfully obvious that we must continue all the good work we have put in to continue to “flatten the curve” so that we can keep our community as safe as possible during this crisis.

Yes, I am a full-time magical gal, but up until the shutdown, I have also been working as a full-time hairstylist. Like many others, I am currently in a super weird state of limbo, unable to go back to the salon until it is deemed safe by the powers that be. This is certainly a hardship, yet I know my focus must remain on what I can do. With uncertainty in the air and bad news everywhere, I know it is vital to support our community by continuing to put a little more magic in the world in any way I can. Hence the juicy morsels of enchantment served up on here daily.

As someone who has been researching and reading Tarot cards since childhood, I have been receiving a lot of requests for readings! This is certainly an excellent time for insight, clarity, and guidance — all things that a great Tarot reading provides. I would like to formally offer this as a service to anyone in need.

It is deeply important to me to be here for you for all your magical needs. I kindly ask that you consider making a donation for these services. Anything at all will help so much during this challenging time! My suggested donation is $10 per card; I offer readings for anywhere from one to eleven cards, your choice. Each reading will include a photo and a full write-up.

Please feel free to request a reading via either one of my Instagram pages: @californiawitchcraft or @unicornface, or using the form here. I am looking forward to connecting with you, and connecting you with your magic! Remember: I am here for you. I will always remind you that YOU ARE MAGIC. Talk to you soon!

A Temperance Tarot Tuesday

Welcome back to your weekly Tarot Tuesday! It’s official, humanity is collectively experiencing some very strange and vivid dreams. (Both the waking and the sleeping kind, come to think of it. Maybe we’ve been in a dream this entire time? Anyway.) The other night I had a dream that I got “TEMPERANCE” tattooed in very big bold capital letters across my arm. Ironically, I got it done very hastily, realizing only when I returned home and took off the bandage that the word had been spelled wrong.

So why is “TEMPERANCE” calling for attention, especially now? Merriam-Webster defines the word “temperance” as “moderation” or “voluntary self-restraint.” So why tell me to chill when I’ve been chilling? We have all been at home; no one is exactly going wild at the moment. But this could be the perfect time to reflect on how we have been living, and how best to find balance in our lives moving forward.
