Now on Amazon – Everyday Tarot Archives: Living the Major Arcana!

Essays on each of the Major Arcana

UPDATE: Both this e-book and the second volume, “Living the Minor Arcana,” have been combined into one volume.

Available in either paperback version or Kindle version.

I’ve been wanting to pull together some of my best Tarot writing for a long time now. As recently noted, I’d done quite a lot of work over the last few years. But reviewing, editing, and (God help me!) formatting it all is no trivial task.

Therefore, it’s with the pride of accomplishment I introduce Everyday Tarot Archives: LIVING the Major Arcana! It went live yesterday just in time for Summer Solstice. Fitting, don’t you think?

To y’all who have told me you like to go back and reference columns on specific cards, this should help. This volume only covers the Major Arcana, but I will be releasing additional volumes that cover the pips as well; we’ll be hitting every card in the deck at least once. I may release a paperback version eventually, but it won’t be available before the entire series is done so it be a single volume.

For less than the cost of a latte (i.e. $4.99), you can own Everyday Tarot Archives: LIVING the Major Arcana. Currently, it’s available exclusively on Amazon in electronic format. Amazon Prime members can borrow the book for free. Even if you don’t own a Kindle, you can still read on one of the many free Kindle reading apps (for smartphones, tablets, PCs, Macs or online).

And if you do borrow or order this book, I would VERY MUCH appreciate it if you would take the time to post an honest review on Amazon. I’m not looking for 5-star reviews so much as I’m hoping for good feedback to help people make an informed choice about purchasing the book. I know what I do is not for everyone, and I want the people who buy the book to be happy with their purchase.

Thanks for your support and any help you can offer spreading the word.

Dream Interpretation with Tarot?

Both Tarot and Dreams reveal symbolic, inner landscapes

Working with the cards and working with dreams share great similarity–understanding metaphor and allegory, noting and interpreting the little details that jump out unbidden, and a solid connection to the ethereal are your greatest allies. Both dreamwork and Tarot are powerful avenues to insight and hidden truth.

Comfort with wordplay, thinking outside the box, and an solid eye for symbolism make your work much easier, with either Tarot or  dreams. Work in one realm enhances the other. So bear that in mind when you’re looking to grow your skills in either arena.

That being the case, I’m exceptionally comfortable working in the language of dreams. As I’m sometimes asked for dream interpretation in the course of Tarot consultation (and have had great feedback), I’m officially adding dream interpretation to the services offered.

Recurring or psychic dreams–often especially vivid and striking–are great candidates for dream interpretation.

Expect a 3-5 card spread (or a few more as required to get to the meaning), a full explanation of everything I get for psychically for you,  and of course my famous “take-home message” card to put it all in perspective. Dream Readings are currently priced $25.

I’m looking forward to helping you decode the mysteries of your unconscious! Request a Dream Reading.

AFJ Available on Kindles

A Fool's JourneyYou can now get your AFJ fix delivered straight to your Kindle for 99 cents a month, with a 14-day free trial. Unfortunately, blog subscriptions don’t work with the Kindle Fire (I know!) OR Kindle software-only readers for iPhone or other devices. Sorry about that, it’s just not offered from Amazon at this point. Boo!

But if you have an old-school Kindle, you get the content automatically, both Everyday Tarot and all the other posts. So you never miss out. Yay!

Even if you don’t own a Kindle, I’d very much appreciate anyone who is willing to post an honest review of this site on Amazon. I’m not fishing for ego-stroking, honest. I just want to help potential subscribers decide whether or not it’s a good fit. Thanks!

Christmas Owl Visits


I got an unexpected box from Amazon today. No indication who sent it. And I’ve extracted no confessions. So its a bit of a mystery.

Very cool gift too. Something the whole family can have fun with. So for now, I’m declaring it a gift from Christmas Owl.

The best part will be taunting my daughter about what it might be before Christmas.  That’s our favorite holiday sport here.


Reader Feedback Request

Questions for AFJ readers…

Mini-Readings: More?

On the 1-card Mini readings: Lilly made a comment, and I got positive feedback from all the folks who were read. I had fun doing them and am thinking with some tweaks, I might do more of these. Did you guys enjoy them? Have thoughts?


I am planning to put together a newsletter. (I know. Masochistic, huh?) Would love any thoughts on what you’d find interesting or useful in an occasional newsletter. Because I want that to be my epitaph–“Interesting and useful.” I mean, you know. A long time from now.

Beside Everyday Tarot…

Beyond the forecast, are there certain topics you’re especially interested in? Tarot topics or any other branch of the woo-woo tree? Not that I’ll necessarily be able to write about whatever. No promises! But am interested in what y’all are into, so I’m in touch with my people here.

Feel free to comment below or contact me privately if you’d rather.

Thanks for whatever feedback you can offer!
