Thank you, Amazon Shoppers!

amazon-voyeurThank you SO MUCH for the folks who use this AFJ Amazon link!  I cannot see who buys what, and using the link does not add to your total cost, but a percentage of your purchase goes to support AFJ. Even small purchases help increase the total percentage paid.

You’ll find this link at the bottom of the “Everyday Foolishness” Emails or newsletters, and on the “Support This Foolishness” page. (I should probably put something in the site sidebar or footer or something. I just don’t want to junk up my pretty design with ads. Ack!)

Here are some of the things y’all have bought.


(Yes, it’s been a while since I did one of these posts. Merry Christmas!) There was also an iPod, but Amazon won’t let me add it for some reason. I’m blaming Steve Jobs.

A HUGE thank you to everyone who supports my work and the Everyday Tarot this way. I appreciate it (and you)!

Sharing Gratitude

From New Orleans, grotto of Our Lady of Guadalupe Church, from patrons who’ve had prayers and miracles delivered.

I’ve been a little surprised, so far my favorite part of the Secret Garden. It wasn’t what I expected at all.

It’s been the Gratitude threads.

I mean, it’s an old idea. So old it’s almost pedestrian. Everybody and their crystal-toting mama tells you, “Keep a Gratitude Journal!”

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yada, yada, yada, right? “And say affirmations and Tarot journal and meditate and send out love vibes to everybody.” All that advice people give but 99% don’t practice.

Reading what the other “gardeners” found to be grateful for that day, it’s an instant pick-me-up. Sometimes it’s big or sometimes it’s very small. But it’s all representative of what has made a difference. And the appreciation carries over as you read the words. Gratitude is a very powerful vibration, you know?

And if I’m having a rough day, I pop in there and spend a few minutes listing out some of what I appreciate. It’s like an instant lift, it soothes the soul, you know?

Today, I’m grateful for the Secret Garden. I’m grateful for the community of this blog, for the people who read here and who send me kind comments and emails. I’m grateful for my Tarot people, who entrust me to keep their secrets and share their journeys. I’m grateful for my friends who love me, my family who supports me (even if they don’t claim to understand me), and my cats who nuzzle up on my lap when I’m trying to read. I’m grateful for the wisdom of the cards and grateful I have the opportunity to explore it together with you.

What are you grateful for today?

A Million Thanks!

I just wanted to say “THANK YOU!” to the lot of you–I’ve felt a lot of warm and support from my Tarot Peeps lately.

In the last week alone, people have helped share my books, visited on Facebook, written reviews, got consults, participated in the video readings, left tips, or just shared kind and encouraging words. All that and more! The energetic weather at large has been kicked up and a touch raw lately, so the extra dose of love has been a real boost.

Thank you. You are appreciated!

What are you grateful for right now?

New Moon Gifts: Free Tarot Books

If you’re subscribed to my newsletter, you may already know this. (And if you’re not, why ain’t ya? Har!) But in honor of the New Moon in Leo, I’m giving away BOTH my Kindle books on Amazon FREE, just for today. Tomorrow, they’ll go back to regular prices. I’m only allowed a certain number of free promotion days, so if you want to participate, I wouldn’t wait on the next opportunity.

And for y’all who are techno-impaired or just cannot deal with download complications, I am working on a hard copy version, both books combined into a single volume. Don’t have a target date on completion, though.

Click on the pictures to get yours. And don’t forget to share if you know of someone who would be interested, or write an honest review if you’ve read them already. Thank you!

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.
