Dear Readers, This is the first Collective Reading I’ve done since the lockdown. I moved my full-time tarot business to 100% online on Monday March 23, due to the pandemic.

Dear Collective, It’s a new year, and community and resilience is on my mind.

Now, … Continue reading

Tarot Reading for the Collective ~ December 2019: Minoan Tarot

Dear Collective, From where I sit on Gadigal land, the sky has been orange for days, the sun magenta, the moon blood red, and the smoke has been all pervasive.

Mass Collective Tarot Reading at the Sydney Opera House

Over a decade ago, I started writing a regular Tarot Reading for the Collective as a monthly blog post.

But that’s exactly what … Continue reading
