• Loneliness in the tarot

    Over the weekend, I had a conversation with a lonely person. I was chatting with a friend outside a pub when he approached us and struck up a conversation.

  • The Tarot Lovers

    In which I sound like some kind of professional intuitive instead of the Sassy Sibyl you all know and love… This was written last year for Flock. I’m sharing here now, since I’m no longer there. 🙂 I’ve updated the post with some photos of different Lovers cards from my collection. I purposely chose some

  • Reflections : Into 2012

    2012. Pretty crazy, huh! And with it, as with every New Year we move into, buzz about resolutions and reflections. What will you change? What will you make better? What went well? What went horribly wrong? It makes sense to do this, by the way. We’re wired to recognize patterns and cycles and the turning
