So often in our busy lives we forget something important – something that we understood as children. What we forget is the importance of friendship.
Social media has helped us stay in touch with so many people. Sometimes we are able to reacquaint ourselves with old friends. The comfort of breathing life into old friendships, and of making new friends, cannot be understated.
At the same time, it is important to have face time with the people we care about – to share a meal, to dance, to enjoy each other.
Friends help each other through hard times. Friends celebrate our good times with us. Friends help us understand ourselves. Friends remind us of why we are loveable.
Friends are the family we choose.
Midsummer Psychic Gallery
It’s been a busy week! In addition to my readings by phone and Skype I was happy to give a Psychic Gallery at Pearl Rauberts’ in Loxahatchee.
I really appreciate it when people take the time to attend my events, whether on line or in person. Time is a limited resource. It means a lot when you share that resource with me.
It means even more when you share your thoughts about these events.
Here’s what a few people had to say about the Midsummer Psychic Gallery.
From Mary, this.
“Once again an outstanding presentation by a wonderfully gifted psychic. Christiana is able to deliver the most amazing readings with wit and wisdom to a gathering of people and the loving messages and spiritual insights are gifts to all in the room. When you combine that with the powerful healing energy to be found in Pearl's place, you have a special event indeed!”
And from Kathy,
“I do have to say that the energy in the room was wonderful....the energy from every person there contributed to such an uplifting and positive event. Great group of people!”
“Wonderful experience. I drove home very carefully, feeling very much on a psychic high. Thank you for offering this opportunity.”
Thank you, all, for your kind words and for sharing your energy at my events, both in person and on line. To find out about events coming soon, please see the Upcoming Events portion of this newsletter!

A Friendship Tarot Reading
Here is a simple two-card reading to help you understand a friendship. You can use tarot or any other card oracle.
Simply pull one card that will represent you, and another to represent your friend. Lay them side by side.
First, does each card picture a person? If so, are they looking at each other, looking in the same direction or looking away from each other? This will tell you about how you and your friend are relating to each other right now.
Is one card stronger or more significant than the other? This might show you that one person is dominating the relationship.
Do the cards complement each other in terms of colors and images? This many suggest how the two of you are similar, or how you bring out each other’s best qualities.
You can interpret each card to show what each of you are bringing to the friendship. You could also look at the cards to indicate what each of you need from the friendship or how each of you feel about the friendship.
This kind of relationship reading can be very helpful in strengthening our understanding and appreciation of each other.
Long before I was a professional reader I loved gathering with a group of friends for an evening of divination. We would share food and read the cards and the I Ching for each other.
I’ve been happy to learn that many people enjoy this same activity. Cards, tea leaves and pendulums are often a part of a great friends’ night in.
Sharing the energy of spiritual exploration with people you enjoy is a marvelous thing. The discovery that comes from divination is made more exciting when surrounded by the people that matter to you.
There are some things to consider when you divine with friends.
It is good to use a number of different tools. This is an opportunity to compare and contrast different oracles and see which ones really resonate for you.
It is best to keep things lighthearted, and to focus on growth and options rather than doom-and-gloom predictions.
As with all readings, pay attention to the questions you ask. Proactive questions, such as “What do I need to do to get a new job?” are better than predictive questions such as “Will I get a new job?” Spiritual questions, such as “What does the Universe want me to know?” will open you to the greatest wisdom.
If you are serious about learning to divine, reading for friends offers you a striking opportunity to really see how your tools work for you. You know your friends, so you will see how their personalities reflect in divination. You will be around to see how your predictions manifest.
Many people tell me that they use oracles such as tarot, but “just for fun.” They say it in an embarrassed way, like a confession. They are often surprised by my answer. “Great!” I tell them. “It’s supposed to be fun!”

Your One-Card Weekly Reading
Your One-Card reading this week is the Two of Cups.
Traditionally this is a card that can predict or describe a love relationship. It can also refer to a great partnership in business.
When it comes to romantic love, we know we can never find a perfect person. But we can find a perfect match. The Two of Cups is the card of perfect love and perfect partnership.
The Two of Cups can refer to a wonderful friendship. That this card was drawn at random for our friendship-themed newsletter is evidence of tarot’s genius.
When you see the Two of Cups it may be time to remember the healing power of love in all its forms. You may be directed to pay special attention to the partnerships in your life. You may be making a wonderful new partnership.
The Two of Cups also reminds you to be a great partner to yourself, and to seek emotional balance in all ways.
