This week, I have two very important announcements to share with you in this newsletter.
First, let’s spend a moment thinking about the energy of announcements, and sharing good news.
Whether through reading sacred texts or through meditation, divination or spiritual mediumship, we are always seeking the good news of spiritual wisdom, and the inspiration of angelic proclamation.
Often, when we announce our intentions, our goals and our successes to our loved ones, the power of our words helps to solidify our success.
Now Open in Lutz!
I am now seeing clients in my new office in the North Fork Professional Center, right across from Walmart, at 1537 North Dale Mabry Highway, #102 in Lutz.
My office is located within Origins Spa and Wellness Center. This provides a serene and centered atmosphere in which to experience your reading with me.
My office hours for in-person readings are Monday through Thursday, 10 am to 8 pm. Of course, phone and Skype readings are always available seven days a week, including evenings.
If you are in the Tampa area, or planning a trip, please consider having an in person reading with me!
The Week in Review
This week on my Dark Forest blog, I wrote about a recent trend I’m noticing. Why is everyone so sensitive right now? Read my post and see!
On the Community Blog, I shared some thoughts and discussion topics about tarot spreads from a recent meeting of the Tampa Bay Area Tarot Meetup.
From Around the Web
My friend and student, Steven Bright, of Tiferet Tarot, shared a wonderful post about sacred space.
Another friend, Jenna Matlin, who will be speaking at Florida TarotCon, wrote a piece that got picked up by Medium.com. Congrats, Jenna! Read “I am a Professional Tarot Reader (And not a Con Artist)”.
If you write about tarot, or like to read about tarot, you might be interested in this new magazine about tarot, Lenormand and oracles, “The Cartomancer”.
Cards of News and Announcement
Virtually every divination method will have a very specific way to predict the arrival of news.
In the Lenormand deck, the very first card, Card One, the Rider, is the bringer of news.
In tarot, the four Pages are the heralds of news; the nature of the news is determined by the suit.
Card 20 of the Major Arcana, Judgement, can also be a sign of news, often specifically from a spiritual source.
When you see these cards in a reading, be on the lookout for new information, or new communication from Spirit!
What’s Up at the Psychic Café?
This weekend I will feature a new episode of Christiana’s Psychic Café to my YouTube channel. The episode will feature a fascinating conversation with Hal Weeks, the artist of Wickwillow Tarot.
You will be amazed by these images, and by the detailed spiritual process Hal worked with to create each card.
Make sure you subscribe to my YouTube channel while you are there!
Tree, from Gilded Reverie Lenormand, by Ciro Marchetti.
Card 5: Tree
The Tree is all about your health, your growth and your life. The Tree is a neutral card; its meaning can be positive or negative depending on the surrounding cards. While there is a very practical aspect to this card in its relationship to the physical body and physical health, there is also a spiritual, or karmic, aspect to this card.
This card can suggest a period of growth and development in any aspect of life.
The Tree may concern itself with your sense of well-being in a spiritual, physical or mental way.
The playing card association for the Tree is Seven of Hearts. This suggests happiness and satisfaction in many areas of life.
Next week we will explore Card 6, Clouds.

Your One-Card Weekly Reading
Your one-card reading this week is the Star.
Traditionally, the Star is a card of wishes and hopes. When it appears, you are asked to affirm your hopes, dreams and desires, as a way of bringing them to reality.
The Star appears to tell you that all healing, all happiness and all satisfaction is available to you, whether or not you can see those possibilities now.
