I haven’t been writing very much about current events or politics in the last while.
Occasionally I have shared thoughts about world issues in my newsletter, or on my social media. But on a whole, my weekly messages here are intended to be about tarot in some capacity.
And sometimes, I wonder if this gives the impression that I’m not noticing what’s going on, or what’s happening out there.
But of course I am.
We are in some tough times, and have been for a while.
And I know that it can be hard to know what to focus on, and what to think some days.

Maybe you’re waiting for that sign, confirmation, or guarantee.
I think I’m a pretty good person to talk to about fear, though probably not for the same reasons people expect.
In my work as a tarot reader, I often answer questions about goals: People look to tarot for certainty, outcomes, and predictions.
