What are you dreaming about?
Never doubt the power of your intentions!
Once upon a time, my tarot teacher, Wald Amberstone of the Tarot School, told me a story about a woman who traveled all over the world with her tarot cards (my dream). She used them like a magic carpet. An uncanny feeling overcame me. Was he reading me? Telling me my future? Hinting at what was possible?
Turns out he was!
Since them, I’ve flown on the wings of 78 cards to London, Paris, Turin and recently to mysterious Chengdu, China. The above pic is the last day of China, sitting in the Wide and Arrow Alleys.
London bus shot on the way to dinner with my fellow tarot presenters from UK Tarot Conference, Eiffel Tower shot from a boat, aperitifs in Turin during Lo Scarabeo’s 30th anniversary celebration and the Wenshu Yuan Temple in Chengdu.
What do you want?
May is the perfect time to focus on what you want between now and Halloween.
~ Select an achievable goal or intention.
~ Select a tarot card representing it.
~ Keep the card where you can see it or screen shot it on your phone.
