I used to do Tarot Readings entirely online, via email, but quite frankly--they were really Life Coaching sessions! Of course, I didn't realize it at the time, because I hadn't yet studied to be a Life Coach (although my minor in college was Psychology). How do I know they were... Continue reading

So, what is a Life Coach, anyway? One of the primary things a Life Coach does is help you clarify your goals. Coaches like myself often ask a set of questions to determine what you want to get out of a coaching relationship--and what you'd ultimately like to achieve. We... Continue reading

Tarot has often gotten a bad rap, primarily because of unscrupulous "fortune-tellers" who promise to disclose winning lottery numbers, a soulmate's address (and time of meeting) or break a "curse"--all with a card reading. Ack. Personally, I use Tarot as a brainstorming tool, as well as a visual map for... Continue reading

I work with those experiencing existential angst--a crisis of meaning--including artists, parents, business owners, students and those who have left their traditional religion. I'm also passionate about... Continue reading

“Life purpose is a choice rather than an experience. It’s something we decide about life.” – Dr. Eric Maisel Around the winter holidays, many watch the perennial favorite movie It’s a Wonderful Life. But, what if you’re not aiming for a wonderful life but, rather, a meaningful one? For years,... Continue reading

Our core values are things we hold deeply. To live an authentic life, our actions, decisions and investments must be aligned with those values. Otherwise, we live inauthentically--and wonder why we feel a lack of purpose or personal meaning. Many are out of alignment with their true values because: They... Continue reading

I've made some Artist Trading Cards recently (aka ATCs)--and hubby did one, too. Here's the video of my show and tell: Have you ever made ATCs? What have you done with them after you've made them? Continue reading

I haven't Googled myself or my work for years, so I'm just now discovering some reviews of my last book Naked Tarot. In print, a review from Rahvym Corvus appears in the latest edition of Witches and Pagans Magazine (#39). Online, Raushanna posted a review in the same year my... Continue reading

Not sure what got me on the Junk Journaling path earlier this year, but here I am. Any other junk journal junkies out there? My first junk journal was for Halloween and had a macabre "embalmer/funeral director" theme. Here's a flip through of the finished product (I gave it to... Continue reading

If you're asking yourself these questions--and lack motivation and inspiration--you're in the right place! Gosh, it's a crazy world out there, right?... Continue reading

On Twitter, Stephen Langlois asked: I’m a talented writer, but am rarely published. Am never solicited. My book has been rejected by nearly every publisher I know of. When I do publish, no more than 10-15 people read my work. With each rejection, my art brings me less joy. Legit... Continue reading

I am so sorry you had this happen to you, too, Andrea. Did you happen to use PayPal? They're really good about rectifying sales. You could even report this guy as a repeat thief. Thanks for stopping by and take care. -- Janet
Tamster, that's an interesting point about those of who grew up "analog" may fare better during these times (and we'd def fare better should there be an internet outage!) 🙂 So many have substituted screen time for tactile/physical hobbies and time in/with nature, that they'd likely feel lost during a web blackout. I'm glad my post offered some comfort. Totally my intention. ❤ Thanks for taking the time to comment!

Those with strong Hermit archetypes have already been self-isolating. In fact, self-quarantine is a natural state of being. The Hermit goes it alone, seeking knowledge--and trusting that his next step is lit by destiny. This energy is comfortable by itself, not needing the company of others to entertain, distract or...

Agree on all counts. :o) You know, there's a difference between cooks who follow recipes to the ounce--an innovative chefs who know the ingredients so well, they create marvels on a plate. I think you know what kitchen you and I are in... 😉
Sad to hear things are still the same with the online Tarot world. I had such bad experiences with so many in the Tarot world that I just decided to not blog, vlog, podcast, teach or write books on the topic anymore (despite some begging me to return). Their whole zeitgeist is so ego-driven--so toxic, materialistic and grade-school cliquish--that I couldn't stand to be "among" them anymore. It's an embarrassment--and another setback for Tarot (which already gets labeled a "devil's tool" from the ignorant)... Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting. Much appreciated. :o)
