I came upon Benebell Wen’s blog post on learning to read Tarot cards while looking up Golden Dawn astrological associations online for my soon-to-be-published Udemy Tarot course. Perusing through the 3 categories of readers (beginner, yes, pass, intermediate, ok, next, advanced… ok wait what’s this?) I came across a document she shares for free about how to make $50K p/a as a Tarot reader. Was my interest piqued? Never before has it been quite so piquedy-piqued, I can assure you of that.
And, furthermore, I was fascinated by the eponymous 9 point plan (click picture) to get yourself out there and making waves, and by golly I just had to share it with you. If you have an interest in becoming a professional in any esoteric field, this post is the best I have ever read on how to do just that. And did I mention already that it’s free? There are tons of accompanying extras to help you, like a course in Tarot reading success. I’m fo sho going to do this. Thank you very much, Benebell Wen.
I’ve read a few neggy comments online about Teal Swan saying she’s copying other people, but all spiritual truths are the same: fingers pointing to the moon. I personally think she’s really cool, she’s clearly on fire with her mission, and she has most definitely helped a LOT of people. I bet she doesn’t spend time trolling on amazon, for example.
Here’s a video I watched last night where she dialogues with a man about his inability to achieve what he wants, which is basically all of us. While I’m not in the same situation as him by a long chalk, yearning for what you want is certainly a common theme with me, as I’m sure it is with most of us. Watch till the end because the last sentence is very important, don’t you think?

Shaktas dedicate their shrines to Shakti. Shakti is worshipped with Sandalwood. A few years ago, it was discovered that Indian Sandalwood trees had mostly all been harvested, and the entire genus was in danger of extinction. Many other varieties of Sandal trees exist, such as a Hawaiian and Australian. But to my mind, Indian Sandalwood essential oil is the most authentic and best-smelling.
If like me you absolutely must have Indian Sandal EO to anoint your shrine, look no further than Ananda Apothecary. Their Sandal is the only oil I would ever use to anoint the feet of my Shakti Rupa. Click the photo above for further info.
Look at us, aren’t we fab? Here we are doing Secret Santa in Royal Garden Cafe last Saturday. This is exactly the Tarot group I wanted to create.

I’ve heard that some Tarot readers offer past-life Tarot readings and I thought that would be really cool, so I was wondering if that would interest anyone? Just to get the party started, I’m offering 20% off your normal Tarot fee. Contact me at the email on the About Me page and we can sort something out. This offer is for one reading only, not for the 2-4-1 promo I’m running until the end of January – see previous post for details.
By the way, my reading fees are all going up in the New Year, so if you want to benefit from my incredibly low prices, now is the time! Hint hint…
So far, I’ve finished all the Major Arcana and Court Card lectures, and I’m just writing the Pip card lectures with a couple of extra cherries for the top of the cake: a short but sweet workshop on Marseille-style decks, and a video presentation on 3 ways to read Oracle cards.
This course will be totally FREE, as a way for me to showcase my amahzing talent, and of course to spread the Tarot love a little bit further.
Please watch the video of Lecture 1 (it’s only 6 minutes) and let me know what you think. And whilst you’re on my YouTube channel, don’t forget to subscribe, friends!
Until the 2nd of January, when you buy a Tarot reading from me, whether in person, via e-mail or Skype, I will give a free Tarot reading as a present to your friend. E-mail me at the address on the Readings page of this site for further information.
I heard a rumour recently, and although I’ve tried to research this so far I haven’t actually found any proof, that the new business trend is fortune-telling for business advantage. And why not, friends? Everyone deserves to be loved, and goodness knows I’ve given enough Tarot readings on that subject, so why not use Tarot for other aspects of your life?
In this video, I discuss giving a SWOT analysis in order to give yourself a business advantage. Watch and then comment on whether or not you think this gives people an unfair advantage.
Today I’m at Arakawa Street Fes (or should that be ‘fesses’ pour les français dans la salle?) where I’ll be at the Tarot stall – where else? Rumour has it there are to be actual vegan toasted sandwiches on site… See? Kali answers even your most unlikely prayers, every time. Jai!
