I'm so pleased to announce that I'm writing a column in the Springwater News paper!
Introducing my Tarot Horoscope. A Card for each sign will describe the cards advice for the two week period.
Springwater News covers the Springwater area, but is based in Elmvale. Elmvale is a central hub between Midland, Wasaga Beach and Barrie, it's a perfect place to get the Tarot Horoscope re-started. (I did this for a local magazine while it ran.)
What I'm hoping to do next is find a small office space or a room I can borrow twice a month to do readings in Elmvale. It will make it easier for the clients that come and see me from Collingwood, Barrie, Elmvale and Wasaga Beach. So if you know of a space in Elmvale, I'd be ever so grateful!
How does a Tarot Horoscope differ from a traditional Astrology Horoscope?
Traditional Astrology HOROSCOPES use the positions of the planets and stars, and where they fall in each sign, to determine the fortune.
With a tarot horoscope, I'm still using the astrology signs as the starting point, but each sign has a specific card pulled for it. Then, based on the attributes of the signs and the story of the tarot card pulled for it, I create a short reading similar to when I'm reading cards.
I have been reading cards in Midland Ontario for over 20 years. You can't read in a small town like this, for this long, and NOT be good at it! I have a steady client practice mostly based on word of mouth, and am called on to do house parties, as well as house cleansings, and Medium readings in the area.
I have a small office located in downtown Midland for my clients. Part of my gift is that I get spirit messages. I use their help while writing the column in the paper, and when doing tarot readings in my office.

I've made hard and fast plans to be on the phone in July. And by on the phone, I mean taking tarot calls.
These are the July are the dates and times I've earmarked to be online working. (EST) I'm a Canadian reader, based in Ontario.
Monday July1st - 9am until 3pm
Wednesday July 4th - 9am to 3pm
Wednesday July 11th - 9am to 11am
Friday July 13th - 9am to 11am
Monday July 16th - 9am to 3pm
Friday July 20th - 9am to 3pm
Monday July 23rd- 9am to 3pm
Friday July 27th - 9am to 11am
I have to have some very specific conditions to be available for the phones (mainly, a quiet house!) And although this list shows no evening availability, I can be available up to 10pm EST on occasion, and occasionally on weekends.
If I'm online and taking calls, my call button will tell you I'm available or on a call, and you can get in the line to be read for next. Please be clear about your questions before you call, and have the TV off and a quiet room or place to take your call.
I look forward to reading for you!
I just got my hands on my July schedule for my out-of-the house gigs, and July is giving me lots of openings for Tarot and Medium readings.
Monday and Wednesdays are looking very good, although weekdays aren't always the most convenient for some. Through the week I have some mornings and alternately some afternoons.
Saturday appointments will be hit or miss through the month of July. For the most part on Saturdays, I will be at the Midland Country MARKET on Balm Beach Road and hwy 93, in front of the Water Stop. Depending on the weather, I may just be selling items and taking bookings, or have a table set up with my cards doing 10 minute readings.
My July appointment calendar has been updated for in person readings in the office in Midland.
If you are long distance from me, I will have some specific dates to do phone readings, and email readings are done once a week ( unless I can get to them sooner. )
May's appointment availability has been updated! I had to make some deep cuts, because i'm in the Huronia Players performance of Calendar Girls in Midland Ontario! It runs from May 4th 2018 until May 19th.
I only have a small part in this one, but I still have to be there every run, for the entire play, so that's cut into Friday and Saturday nights, as well as Sundays (which was a popular day for bookings!)
If you visit my calendar for booking tarot readings, you'll see there are still a good amount of days and times left. Although they are mostly during the work week, I do have some Saturday mornings available.
We are getting into the time when bookings for home parties are starting to come in - Even though June and July feel far away, My weekend bookings fill up FAST. I can visit cottages in the Midland area, As far as Balm Beach, and Victoria Harbour. Send me an email to be sure I can come to you! Other wise, you are welcomed to visit my office in downtown Midland. If a group of you are coming, there are many cafes and shops just down the street from my office to browse in.
This schedule goes for my Reflexology in Midland Ontario, too!
If you are curious about fitting into one of my quiet times, for either a tarot reading, a medium reading, reflexology or reiki, have a peek at my schedule!
I was in the tub, when a BIG THOUGHT occurred to me. WHAT IF our life purpose was something that just sort of happened in the natural flow of being a good human being? It wasn't something we had to search for, or work hard at. What if it were something that just sort of happened while we were in the natural flow of living our lives everyday.
I thought about running threads through my life. How different people have touched my life, and also about the lives I have touched in just being me, in the right place at the right time.
And then I thought, WHAT IF, in those moments that felt small to me, I had actually 'completed' my big life purpose. And all the rest is gravy. All the rest is just to have fun and celebrate all the world has to offer. Even if that is as simple as a nice hot bath, or the sun on your face, or the best Ruben Sandwich you've ever eaten.
What if it were really this simple? Doesn't that idea just free you up completely? It certainly takes the pressure off to perform, to struggle, to over think everything. (I am totally guilty of that.)
I'd love to hear your thoughts on the idea.
It's nearly New Years Eve as I sit and write. We're in the funny spot, the week between Christmas and New Years, where I have a challenging time remembering what day it is and where I'm supposed to be... more so than usual.
I've been watching a LOT of the show Outlander, which feels like a holiday indulgence... sitting and watching Netflix, with no spellwork embroidery in my hands. It's making me think a lot about time travel, and magic, my herb work that I've put aside for family festivities. It's got me thinking about the year to come.
This is the time of year that I get a lot of reading requests for what's coming up in the new year. 2018 feels like it's going to be special, that it's made for personal victories for the individual, if you are ready to be patient with yourself through the healings that will be presented.
Those healings will look different for everyone, and will be tailored to put you just beyond your comfort zone. But, just passed that fine line awaits some beautiful reward.
That's what 2018 is feeling like, for me. That's the messages I get from The Dudes. (My spirit guides. They picked me. They know me. haha.)
Another thing that I'm finding I'm doing quite a bit lately is attracting more and more people who are just starting with their own gifts, but don't know what the next step is. Those conversations have been very individual, too. No two witches, or druids, or seers, or readers are alike. I sit and get the messages for the individual with how to proceed with their own growth with their gifts.
The beauty of January and February, for me, is that the air is somehow quieter, the energy is more still. It makes it easier to get crisp and clear messages . There's something more relaxed for me, with readings, at this time of year. I nestle in. There's no long distance drives to Barrie or Orillia for home party tarot readings, less call for bachelorette or home party readings. This leaves me cozy in my office for individual readings.
As always, you can book a personal "what's coming up this year" style reading with me in my office, in Midland Ontario, but we can always do a phone reading, too, if you live long distance from me.
However, if you are also someone who feels like you've got a gift and you don't know how to use it, it would be my pleasure to help guide you through the next steps in your growth. Learning to read cards, learning to perform Reiki, learning to connect with your own spirit guides are all things I can help with!
Happy New Year!

When ever I get inquiries for email readings or in person readings, I always stress to the client to word their question in such a way that gives us both focus, WITHOUT giving your tarot reader any back story or hints. Personally I feel like even a little bit of information can make me feel like I'm cheating.
I like to read as 'blind' as possible, but still give you the option of asking the question that is on your mind.
It is helpful for you to give the reader some sort of question if you truly aren't looking for a general life read. Why? With my readings, I find my guides like to give the spiritual answer. They will always move straight to the spiritual reason for what's happening in your life, and often that's not what I find my clients are in search of!
I find good questions begin with considering what
has been the first thing on your mind to solve, or something that has just been sticking with you. the thought or situation that just won't quit.
The idea here is to pretend that you've already had ALL the story telling with the reader you are sitting down with. You shouldn't have to explain anything. It's the tarot cards job to tell you the answer to your question. I also think it's my job to give you as many confirmations as I can about what it is that you are thinking about, so we know we're in the right place.
We then call this THING on your mind, "the situation."
then, you can form your question using a "who, what, where, when, why" beginning:
"What is most important to know about this situation?"
"What is the best path to follow in this situation?"
"Am I already on the right path?"
"Where can I expect this path to lead?"
"When should I make the change that I'm thinking of?"
"What am I supposed to be learning spiritually from this situation?"
"What is the path of least resistance in this situation?"
"Who is it that I should be looking for?"
"What is the path for the greatest good in this situation?"
"What will happen If I change something in this situation?""What will happen if I do nothing in this situation?""What can I expect as a touchable world outcome in this situation?" (as opposed to spiritual world.)
"should I take action?""Do I chose A or B?"
"If I chose A or B, what is the outcome?"
"How will I know when it is time to take action?"
Questions worded in this way help get us to the heart of your inquiry, without giving the tarot reader any hints.
I hope this note helps you get the most out of your reading, and also helps you feel confident in your choice of readers.
I look forward to reading for you!
Winter is coming!
I'm feeling like it's time to finally get organized to be ready for taking phone calls for tarot readings. Winter is on it's way, my home parties start to slow down, and I'm completely set up to do readings over the phone. There's nothing left for me to do but pick up the phone.
Except... for some reason the idea of getting on the phone breaks me out in a cold sweat. This is strange to write, because the phones are really where I got my start, reading for people who weren't already friends and family.
I've come to realize that what makes me nervous about doing the reads on the phone, is more my worry about the per-minute charge. I feel so RUSHED to shuffle and get the messages as they come, because all the client on the phone hears is silence while that is happening. I don't want people to think I'm just sitting there breathing into the phone as they pay a per minute charge.
So, I do like some sort of contact via email or messaging before a phone call, so that I can walk people through the system and also so that I can forward them my "how to word your question well" note. If the clients are better prepared, we don't waste time trying to figure out what it is they want to know.
Plus, I've got my per minute rate set pretty low, in comparison to the other readers on this specific platform I use. I've done that also to put myself at ease about that money hang up!
My plan is to log on and become available when ever I am home and it's QUIET!
Would you prefer phone readings to email readings, if you were unable to come and sit with me in person?
