III OF PENTACLES
The mundane world is a goldmine for the happenings of magic. The medicine of making. The sauce of synchronicity.
III OF PENTACLES
In the act of forgiving, we perceive ourselves offering a key to another. And it is in this motion that we unlock our own shackles.
0 THE FOOL
The answer is in you. In the cycle. In the hole in your heart that is full of possibility.
Dear old death, familiar friend. Kind confidant. Core aspect of the cycle of our psyche.
DAUGHTER OF SWORDS
Miracles present themselves to those whose minds are best prepared to experience them.
III THE EMPRESS
The Empress is a symbol of fertility. A sign of pending sweetness, like low fruit, ripe for picking.
DAUGHTER OF WANDS
Sitting deep in the thick of change can be disorienting. Isn’t always comfortable. Often has us questioning how we got into a wild situation and how on earth we’ll get ourselves out.
II OF WANDS
Direction is not always clear. Deep in the dance of eclipse season, the light on our paths finds a shadow to hide in.
IV THE EMPEROR
The California redwood tree stands tall, hundreds, perhaps thousands of years old. It has seen and braved the tests of time.

XIX | THE SUN
We trudged up the hill, breathing heavy in that way that didn’t let on how out of shape we felt, though we’d already admitted to not working out enough. The scent of grass grown too long pierced my lungs and I smiled but I couldn’t say why...
SIX OF CUPS
This beginning of this week is unflinching. As if you had no reaction to an old lover sneaking her arm around your waist at a concert. A scene that normally shocks, causes you to pull stunts but those crawling fingers on your ripped army tee feel familiar so you just stand there like a double in the final take...
0 | THE FOOL
The Fool, when you tap into their energy, is full of wonder. Like leaving a closing coffee shop, releasing a giant “UGH” before stepping into a summer rainstorm, and taking ten seconds to transform disgust to delight as you relax tensed muscles into the decadence of droplets landing in a laughing mouth...
FATHER OF CUPS & MOTHER OF CUPS
My feet sighed into the sand as I gulped salty ocean air. Intentionally hyperventilating had an effect like rubbing a cool salve on a festered wound. I trudged quickly, trying to keep pace with friends who walked the flat plane of concrete next to Riis beach...
