And my newest, “Tarot and Self Care #2” from Jill Roberts Upper East Side Medium on Anchor: https://anchor.fm/JillNYC/episodes/Tarot-and-Self-Care-2-e2lu5o
As promised in Episode 4, here are the abbreviated meanings to the Major Arcana, the Minor Arcana, the Court Cards with their accompanying Elements!
Minor Arcana/Court Cards with Elements
Great deck for Reversals (explained in Part 2 of Tarot and Self Care, Episode 6)
Best starter decks! The Rider-Waite Deck has been around for a long time and has universal themes (you can pick up a deck on Amazon) and The Simple Tarot by Angie Green (TheSimpleTarot.com) is based on the Rider Waite but with modern illustrations and best of all, KEYWORDS right on the cards to make learning easy and fun!
Here I took the quite ominous 8 of cups by Rider Waite and compared it to Angie’s Simple Tarot and you can see the difference even though they’re based on the same themes. This is why I highly recommend getting both decks.
In R.W. (I have to abbreviate or you’ll be sick of reading the names of the decks just as much as I am writing them 😉) you see a nonplussed looking moon, mountains surrounded by water, a man with his back to us walking away from the cups using a stick to aid his uphill path, and he seems to be on a piece of land surrounded by the water as well. If I hadn’t put the cards side by side, what do you think this card is trying to convey? (Please let me know what you think in the comments! I love starting an interesting conversation, especially about Tarot! 🗣)
Now take as look at the S.T. Pretty clear right? I don’t know if I wouldn’t have come up with “Intuition” by the R.W. deck if I was just starting out. Sure there’s a moon but it’s night time. I get the gist of an uphill battle and starting out on a new path, but not from the swamp, looking like small hills that are depicted. In the S.T., Angie has a much more consice interpretation. The moon has the keyword of “Intuition” along with the Mountain has ” seeking a new path” , We see the 8 cups lined up like a pyramid unlike them in just 2 rows in the R.W. The key words “A Turning Point and Voluntary Withdrawal” may not be conveyed as consicely for some beginners.
If you want to learn about the Tarot, learning how to use your intuition along with it, and a comparison of popular decks like the one I did above, leave me a comment below!
Hope you’re having an amazing day!

All My Love and Light,
Mediumship for Grieving
The holidays can be tragically hard when you’re grieving for a lost loved one, especially when you’re trying to navigate to a new “normal” through one of the hardest times in your life. As an Evidential Medium and Grief councilor, I combine the two to make everyday life a little more bearable. Whether it’s been 5 minutes or 5 years, know that everyone grieves differently and for different lengths of time. I lost the love of my life going on nearly 13 years ago and my Grandmother, who was my rock, coming up on a year a couple weeks from now. I think about them every day and know that finding that new normal is not an easy task. Just because I practice the Art of Evidential Mediumship doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt or that I don’t too need to grieve when I lose someone close to me too. These incredible losses has changed me profoundly. I’m not going to tell you it’s not going to hurt, it will and most likely for the rest of your life, but I’m here to help you in this traumatic time, and what you can experience with an open heart and mind is absolutely and amazingly priceless.
I empower my clients by showing them the tools to start their Mediumship communication with their loved ones. I love reading for my clients but showing them how they can do this themselves is what I love doing best.
I think it’s the best gift I can offer and the best way of not only giving back, but helping you to live your life with them still with you, is what truly matters most. Being able to feel their love around you again and cultivate a different, but new relationship with them is all within your grasp, their just waiting on you. I can tell you without a shred of doubt, your loved ones are all around you.
Make an appointment today before they’re all booked for the remaining weeks of 2018 and the new year. Inquire at info@PsychicMediumNYC.com
You don’t have to reside in Manhattan because we will meet wherever you are in the world via Zoom Conference. If you don’t know what Zoom is or how to use it, don’t worry, I will walk you through it. It’s like Skype and FaceTime except I can share my screen with you for information and most importantly, give you detailed messages from your loved ones while recording our sessions for you to have to look back upon for a lifetime.
All My Love and Light,
Beneficial Thought: Keep Calm and Carry On When Mercury Enters Gemini
Feeling a little restless? Itching to do or say something? Wary of conversations happening around you, and maybe even a little bit paranoid? Or maybe you feel like your mind is all over the place and you can′t get it to just settle down.
We′re all feeling this right now, and that′s because super sly Mercury has flown into its home sign, the Mutable Air sign, Gemini. We′re all literally all over the map, but not for long. So today we′re going to talk about how to keep calm and carry on for those two weeks of here, there, and everywhere when Mercury enters Gemini.
What is Mercury in Gemini?
Mercury is one of the planets that travels through the zodiac signs throughout the year and only sticks around in each one for a couple of weeks. From May 29 to June 12, Mercury will be in its home sign. Mercury rules Gemini, the quick witted Mutable Sign of the Air signs. But Gemini, the double-sided twins of the zodiac, is a little all over the map as well. This is a lot of energy happening all at once!
The themes of Mercury are logic, intellectual thought, inspiration, and communication. Mercury rules Gemini and also the Mutable sign of the Earth signs, Virgo. Where we see Mercury in our natal charts is where we have the most intellect and inspiration in our lives, and where we are best able to communicate. Mercury in Libra, for example, would indicate someone who is very good at communicating and expressing ideas in relationships that have harmony and balance. That′s how Mercury rules.
Then we have Gemini. The Mutable Sign of the Air Signs Gemini is symbolized by the twins, often characterized as Jekyll and Hyde. Gemini gets a bit of a bad rap this way. Yes, Gemini can be super sarcastic, witty, a little double-edged, and sometimes a little bit loose on truth and facts. But there′s an intelligence to Gemini that is highly underrated.
When Mercury is in Gemini, we have the gift of clear thought, objectivity, and mental flexibility. Yes, we can see the shadowy side of Gemini come in during this time frame, but we also have the gift of clarity. But sometimes, the shadow sides win. Paranoia can ruin the best day, and many times, it′s not rooted in anything real.This is why a lesson in keeping calm and carrying on while Mercury is in Gemini is in order.
Your Keep Calm Checklist for Mercury in Gemini
1. Be cool.
One of the reasons Gemini gets a bad rap is because Gemini doesn′t show their cards. They keep cool during their every day activities, and come from a place of reason and logic. If you want something from someone when Mercury is in Gemini, keep cool. Listen, communicate, and don′t react emotionally. Make decisions based on reason and logic and not emotion. You may have to work a little harder under this restless vibe, but you have to actually make the effort to be cool. Look to celebrities like Angelina Jolie (Mercury in Gemini) for a perfect example of that stoic, peaceful energy.
2. Just the facts.
We are talking Mercurial intellectual energy combined with Air Sign energy, which is not emotional energy. It′s logical, reasonable, rational, fact-based energy. To get what you want in any of your communications under this energy for the next two weeks, stick to the facts. Don′t try to use emotion to express what you feel and what you want, use a cool detachment that privileges facts and information before making decisions, like Marilyn Monroe who also had Mercury in Gemini.
3. Don′t get stuck on truth.
Sad to say, truth may be hard to come by under Mercury in Gemini, and you may find yourself flipping between two sides of the same coin. If you are in search of information or accuracy in a conversation and find yourself being manipulated by wishy-washy folks or double talkers, it can get frustrating. At the same time, you′ll see a lot of smooth-talkers during this transit that will focus more on charming you than dishing out the truth. Think Tom Cruise types, as he has his Mercury in Gemini. This can drive us bonkers or up a wall and ruin a day very quickly.
You′re going to see a lot of chit chat because it will be very easy to talk to people under this witty and conversational transit. But that doesn′t mean you are going to be seeing a lot of truth come your way. Best to accept that before going into conversations, or you could find yourself beating your head against the wall. Don′t worry, the truth will come eventually.
When all else fails, write. That doesn′t mean the whole world needs to see it. If ever there was a time when venting on paper was the best medication for your soul, this is it. More emotional means of soul work and keeping calm are not going to be the most effective methods for staying sane under this transit. We WILL feel pulled in different directions. We WILL feel like we are being told 200 stories at once. We WILL feel like we can′t organize our thoughts and we will be distracted by literally everything.
So, write. Get it all out. If you′re mad at someone, write them a letter, just don′t send it. This practice is for you, no one else. If you′re trying to find truth, write out the jumbled thoughts in your head. Don′t try and force information on or from anybody. Ground yourself in soothing energy with crystal healing, by tucking a rose quartz or amethyst in your pocket. Journal until the cows come home, or at least until Mercury moves on into Cancer.
If you are feeling restless and antsy and like you don′t know what to do next, stop. Take a big breath. And relax. You are not alone. This is Mercury in Gemini amplifying some of your fears and paranoias. Do not live in them.
