Thank you Sarah, it was so beautiful listening to you. You are fluent in Tarot! I'm hooked!

You have a way to translate in the most effective, sometimes entertaining, but always meaningful voice that I have ever experienced. … You have helped me with your readings in ways that I’m just beginning to understand.

Thank you for my tarot reading. It is truly affirmation of my vision for the future, and then some.

The first thing I thought when I think of your interpretations is RELATIONSHIP. I don't think anyone else ( that I know of ) is so gifted at seeing patterns and the strings and energies which talk among cards in a reading. For you the cards are not static but kinetic.

Finding Your Way Forward: The Eights In Tarot

When you’re feeling stuck, when you’ve reached an impasse, when you feel like you’ve been put on the back-burner; whenever any of these sensations colour how you experience your life, drawing an Eight is a clear message that things are on the move, about to move, or that you at least have the power to make a move.

Is Your Life Falling Apart? Or Is It Trying To Come Together?

One of the greatest gifts that a Jungian approach to tarot - and to my own life - has given me has been indescribably precious: The understanding that the crisis and breakdown that I was plunged into aged 34 was not only normal, but a rite of passage.

Reaching The Mid-Point: The Sevens In Tarot

In tarot, I believe that when we meet the Sevens we meet the idea of “consciousness” more fully than we have before. We have an opportunity to see ourselves in a different light, and we are only able to do this when we step back and inquire into the nature of who we are.

Moving Into The Flow: The Sixes in Tarot

In the Fives we hit the resistance and upheaval of rough seas. In the Sixes, just for a moment, we find ourselves in calmer waters, where we are able to regroup, take stock, and act with more clarity.

Into The Fray: The Fives in Tarot

This is the first time that conflict has made a significant appearance in each suit. Yes, we’ve had moments of conflict, but the Fives are defined by it. When we move from the realm of non-incarnate potential (the Aces) and into the world of duality (the Twos), we have bound ourselves to the experience of contrast. Perhaps conflict is inevitable. Perhaps what we do with it is not.

When the Teacher Becomes the Student – A Lesson in Humility

A Pause: The Fours in Tarot

In tarot, Four enables something to come into balance more easily than its predecessors. It is a moment of suspended animation — as if there is a call to gather reserves, because they will be required soon enough as we move on again into the action and increasing complexity of the Fives.

From Potential Into Action: The Twos in Tarot

Today, we enter the world of the Twos, where potential is brought into the physical world that we inhabit.

The Aces: Symbols of Initiation

Each Ace has a different quality, but they all share the same idea: that of initiation, as in 'the beginning of everything'. Each represents the purest potential that its suit offers to us; each is a blueprint. Each heralds the arrival of a thought, a feeling, a creative spark, a new method.

Tarot is a Verb, Not a Noun

I believe that when we look at a reading, we are looking at an aspect of the unconscious. And when we become aware of the unconscious, the unconscious becomes aware that we are aware of it.

Pedestals and Projections: A Tale of Growing Up

Today's reading couldn't have chosen more apt cards: one of the most favoured in the tarot deck, and one of the least favoured. One that elicits a sigh of relief, the other a short intake of breath between the teeth. One the promise of pleasure; the other, pain. One "Success"; the other "Mourning."

What is it about a vision becoming a possibility that also holds in it something that makes you uneasy because its arrival suggests having to contend with something that, until now, you’ve niftily avoided looking at or conversing with face-to-face?

The Queen of Swords in this reading is about the ability to be vulnerable - and to do that means to admit (to let in) what is irrational and overwhelming: nothing less than the ocean, which is the Queen of Cups.

In some key part of your life, you have been moving through an experience of limited visibility, and a journey based more on hunches and faith than fully rounded, visible facts. What you are moving towards: a moment of connection and understanding.

At the heart of it all, The Magus is the master alchemist. He makes magic from the raw materials of life. Mercurial in nature, he is quicksilver-fast, with lightning responses, a sharp tongue, and the kind of sleight-of-hand that puts street magicians to shame. He is fashioning the world from the vantage point of the Soul.

When The High Priestess and The Hanged Man come together like this, the lines between what is conscious and unconscious get a little more blurred. You may feel there are forces at play that go beyond your usual tête-à-têtes with the unseen and with your intuition. Instead of being at a distance, this watery world may feel immersive.

It’s a fine line – that line between bypassing yourself out of where you are on the hope of the Nine of Cups, and knowing in the very bones of you that you are not limited by your past nor your circumstances; that there is the possibility of something new; that you have the right to wish.

The Fool sparks a process of desire that burns inside you as a fire of self-love and radiates outwards into your world. You can share this with others; you can keep it for yourself. There is no ruling about how you are with this. But you become *aglow*.

Can you step away from the state of the Three of Swords, and, in so doing, step on to the other side of that particular, now-obsolete, behemoth of an obstruction, and know that you're no longer looking for the source of the light at the other side: you ARE the source of the light on the other side?

It may feel like you are meeting resistance outside - that events and things are conspiring to push you down, to hold you back, to sabotage what it is that you have so lovingly nurtured. But what if that resistance were coming from inside you, and then being reflected by events and things outside you? What if you are in some key way the architect of your own experience?

The Princes are nothing if not fighters, and you have a cohort of them available to you. Find your voice, find your passion, find your plan. Go out and put some skin in the game. There are no guarantees about outcome, but the Princes aren't particularly interested in outcome as much as the adventure itself.

The Tarotcast – March 29, 2017

This is a situation that may well feel familiar to you: the feeling of being trapped by a lack of clarity or clear direction; a sense of mental overwhelm; a distraction that has become disproportionate; a state where what was attractive is now overblown and which is taking up a lot of mind-space.

Libido is the creative drive that underpins all things. It is plugged into and fed by the unconscious, by biology, and initiated in a zone that precedes thought, or logic, or what's rational. It is also creative to the point of destruction. One way, or the other, you're looking at the most potent energy available.

This week's reading, you see, is far closer to last week's than may first seem apparent. It may be closer than feels entirely comfortable. It is close for a purpose, though, and that is to get into a particularly fusty, dusty corner of the psyche to brush the metaphorical cobwebs away.

You're being asked to consider tempering a stance that runs the risk of becoming narrowed and set in its ways.

Is "Power" really true power if you can't move freely? Does real power require you to stay where you are?

You are now in a phase where you are trying to separate truth from fiction.

The Tarotcast – Week of October 10, 2016

This is the start of a journey. This is a moment when something steps into existence. It is neutral, this energy. It is our own subjective response to it that attaches a particular judgement, whether that is positive or negative. What is certain is that there is an air of the new, a beginning.

The Dark Side of the Shadow Chasers: Addressing the Bullshit in Shadow Work

There is something that you have gone through recently -- a foundational experience -- that encouraged you to take a different look at life and your place in it.
