Monthly Medicine | November is Stepping Back

Magic + Makers What’s still lingering: Seven of Pentacles What we’re moving into: Page of Wands Further Advice: Connect Decks: Aquarian Tarot, Vessel Oracle My intention a week ago was to work on this column so that the weekend before Halloween was free for dance parties, binge-watching 80s horror films, and maybe purchasing my pup a costume. Instead, here I am, over a dozen pieces of candy deep, the A Nightmare on Elm Street soundtrack playing in the background, candles lit, and cards just recently pulled for all of you. How fitting that I greatly procrastinated and ended up pulling cards for...

Monthly Medicine | October is Getting Back to What’s Real

Magic + Makers What’s still lingering: Three of Swords (Reversed) What we’re moving into: Three of Cups Further Advice: Five of Swords (Reversed) Decks: The Wild Unknown Tarot The slightest dip in the weather brought talk of pumpkin spice season, memes featuring Sigourney Weaver cozying up to a pumpkin, and the promotion of horror movie marathons.

While taking a walk earlier this evening, I recalled how these childhood...

Magic + Makers What’s still lingering: Six of Cups  What we’re moving into: Seven of Coins  Further Advice: Chrysoprase Decks: The Fountain Tarot, Visions Crystal Oracle Serendipitous events are at the forefront of this month’s medicine. Like a string of coincidences, or just plain happenstance if you prefer, passages in books, conversations over beer with loved ones, and reading (and later re-reading) horoscopes from folks I respect and admire, have all been confirming and doubling down on the cards that were pulled for August. It’s evident that we’re settling into a period where our connectedness to others wants its...

Monthly Medicine | July is About Returning to You

Magic + Makers What’s still lingering: Son of Wands Reversed What we’re moving into: Six of Wands Further Advice: Spirit Decks: The Wild Unknown, Vessel Oracle Before I do any reading, whether one card, three, or nearly the entire deck, I like to sit with myself and get in a meditative state. I’ve pictured myself on a bluff above the ocean, in the middle of nowhere under the only tree for miles, standing knee-deep in water looking longingly at the moon, in the woods with animals lingering in the background, you name it. But for reading for a large...
