  • My Lover, My Love, My Reflection - The desire for love is a universal one; it shows up in nearly every reading I have ever done, a fact that emphasizes the centrality of human relationships in health and well-being. Everyone wants to see The Lovers card come up in their readings. People commonly ask, “Will I meet someone soon?” “Is this person […]
  • The Hierophant and the Illusion of Struggle - For the first third of my life, I strongly identified with the number 5.
