The Hermit - The Star Tarot
Many thanks to my clients, who have allowed me to include their thank you notes, reviews and testimonials on my website. To protect their privacy, names and reading specifics have been omitted and they are identified only by their gender.

“Just.. Wow…. Everything was correct. I had to read everything again and again since I couldn’t believe what I was reading.”  (female) 

“I am very happy with my reading. What I liked most was that you broke down my question into two parts and your reading included action steps. I also liked how you explained numerology aspects. I felt that this added a lot of depth to the reading and made me think more in depth about my question. Thank you so much, Barbara.”  (female)

“Thank You yessss correct!! Thank You so much for the reading. You explained everything so well, and you were very correct. It was an awesome experience getting a reading from you. God bless you, and continue to do the great work that you are doing!!! You are indeed an amazing lady! Thanks so much!!”   (female)

“Very true reading. I appreciate the straightforwardness and how you explain how the cards fit to the people. It was what I needed to hear.”  (female)

“Yes I feel this has resonated with me! I do feel the advent of change and new beginnings. I am debating on whether I should start a new business in a creative field. A lot has gone on in my inner world in my last birthday year. That is bang on! The Lovers card also made me smile because I wonder if I’ll find love or if my hunch is correct about a certain someone. I am wondering if the pentacles could be related to my health. I do feel more confident after this Tarot reading that my intuition is correct on the things I am starting to pursue. I feel uplifted. I do feel more confident that things will work out for me. Thanks so much.”  (female)

“Thanks. Excellent reading!“  (male)

“This is the best tarot reading I’ve had so far! I really liked that you included a photograph of the cards that you pulled. I also thought your interpretations and descriptions were fantastic (your writing is phenomenal – you have a gift!). I also really enjoyed the [numerological] 1-2-3 analyses, as this was something new for me!“  (female)

“This reading is brilliant in that it described the situation perfectly. I think you are a fantastic reader! I AM doing most of the work, my man IS sitting down and I know deep down that he has reservations. You are right in that we need to talk and that could end us but it has to be done as I cannot go on like this. So very thankful to you for doing many cards to give so much info. Your kindness is appreciated and I am deeply grateful to such a wonderful, kind and empathetic reader. I genuinely consider you to be a true, honest, and insightful reader. I wish you love and light.”  (female)

“Wow! Thank you, Barbara! This makes sense to me since I am seeking to change my life for the better. I appreciate your reading for me!“  (female)

“It was quite a nice reading. The main thing I liked about it was your presentation. It feels to me that you really put in your efforts. Thanks.”   (female)

“Thank you so much for taking the time to do my reading, also for answering both questions, which I really did not expect you to do.
Time for myself, I think. I shall focus on learning to love myself and nurture my burgeoning new career, whatever it turns out to be. Focus on my writing, which I love, and just be for a while. Surround myself with love for a change.
Thanks for your kind words, Barbara. You are lovely. I shall await my knight and continue on with interests that delight and intrigue me until he makes his appearance. Hopefully these things will make a positive impact not only to myself but to others. I see changes occurring on a daily basis since I decided to take a new direction in my life and I am sure these will only increase and speed up the more I learn to know and appreciate the person that I am. Quite a big ask but it will get easier with time. Now the process of transformation begins. Positive thinking and happiness – so much to look forward to during this re-birth. Thank you again for the reading and sincerest thanks also for your good thoughts.”  (female)

“Thank you so much for your extremely insightful reading. In troubling times it can be difficult to see straight. You have helped me see the importance of remembering who I am. I am eternally grateful.”  (male)

“I was randomly going through the reading again & it made me realise the enormity of the efforts you put in it. Thank you for such a detailed, beautiful & encouraging explanation of the cards. I have no sensibility of the tarot but your comforting analysis elevated my view of life. I really am grateful for your work.”  (female)

“First off, let me say I think you are pretty spot on. [Your reading] was great and you seemed to have complete insight into my situation. Thank you very much!”  (female)

“There are several things that, to me, stand out in the reading. That I need to let my creativity be in alignment with spirit is actually quite spot on. I’ve been accepted to join some advanced writing classes, and I really need to listen to my own inner voice when writing for that class, and learn how to listen to the critique without changing who I essentially am as a writer.
Also, the part about connecting to spirit and my own inner knowledge is so true! I’ve been working on that connection for a long time, and every step I get deeper into my own inner wisdom. But, lately it’s been a little off. And this is a call to find that connection again. Especially because I know I have a light to share with the world, and I need to find the courage to share that light.
And that brings me to the last part of the reading, which is just spot on! Fear is a huge part of my life and I’m working on it every single day. When I saw the card and read your reading I just instantly knew that this is the part that’s really causing a lot of imbalances in my life.
I will most certainly remember the last five sentences in this reading and use them to get my [motivation back on track]!
I really appreciate the reading, which is very accurate but most of all very loving and kind, which in its own way has a healing effect. Thank you ever so much and good luck to you on your tarot journey!”  (female)

“Thank you for your reading and for following up. I did end up talking to [name] and letting him know how I felt. I’m still sad though since I miss him a lot.. the sadness is starting to wane though which I’m glad for! I appreciate the insight you gave around this situation.”  (female)

“Barbara, thank you for your guided tarot reading, these cards did align with me and I felt a true drawn connection. Your reading was coherent and detailed but easy to understand and I think you have an amazing natural gift.
Also, thank you for making me aware of my energy years, as this was something I was not aware of but may have been having an influence on my life. I really appreciate what you have done, and forwarned what the future may be holding for me. Kind regards.”  (female)

“Thank you for a really positive reading. It was a good overview of what the tarot cards represent and personalised to my question. Also appreciate the extra numerology in the reading. The reading was in depth and insightful and I appreciate the further comments you made after my clarifying some of what was said.”  (female)

“Thank you for my reading, Barbara. You touched on areas I have never told anyone before and surprised me with your perspective on them. Thank you. Your reading is going to be very helpful as I try to work myself out of this dilemma. Thank you for your honest reading style and for your compassion. Your caring for others came through in your reading and was very appreciated.”  (female)

Tarot reading reviews of Mother Tarot - 2 of Pentacles - Rohrig Tarot
2 of Pentacles - Rohrig Tarot

“Thank You very much for the detailed reading!”  (female)    

“Wow, thank you for your thoughtful and insightful reading!  I would say that it is pretty much 100% on target. I’m really impressed that you could glean so much from the cards! Two things really strike me in your reading. First, the Hierophant. This guy was popping up very frequently in my own reading a couple of weeks ago.  I kept trying to figure out why. I like your suggestion of feelings of guilt…that resonates more with me. Secondly, what you are saying about where I “fit in my own skin” resonates…or being true to myself. I feel like in order to go on would require me to “fake it”  but I keep questioning at what cost?  For what?  For whom?  I’m not sure, except that there are children involved, which is my biggest concern.
Thank you again.  I’m pretty impressed with how you pulled things together. You read with such sincerity and compassion and the second reading is so hopeful! It has been difficult lately, and I sincerely hope I can work from a “position of strength, wisdom and honesty” as you write. Your reading is helpful and uplifting for me.
I have been studying tarot for over a year now, and I don’t think I would have been able to get all that from the cards.”  (female)

“Great reading, Barbara. You picked up on things that I haven’t come to terms with and more. I am truly pleased and astonished with my reading. Thank you.”  (female)

“Very much on point and resonates with what is actually happening right now.”  (female)

“Thank you! Your reading was remarkably spot on. I identified with everything you said, particularly about myself and not wanting to let go emotionally but knowing internally that I should. I enjoyed your explanation about 2’s and 5’s and the reversed meanings, great insight and it resonated with me. I appreciate your honest and open reading style. Thank you for the advice and guidance.”  (female)

“Thank you for this. I am going to have a go at the book. It occurred to me that this is the place I feel most comfortable so why not write my own characters. I will let you know how I get on.“  (female)

“I really relate to everything that has been said. I am a spiritual person and I do try to find my “quiet” time, which is also very hard at the moment. After my illness and losses. I am still grieving as it was all very recent, but you are right, it has all made me a stronger person. I look at my whole life in a different perspective. This reading has put my mind at rest with a lot of things that I have been questioning. It has  filled me with confidence and optimism, so thank you very much. You have been spot on and helped me an awful lot. I feel alot stronger to  be able to cope with [everything.]”  (female)

“Thank you for providing these important insights, Barbara.”  (female)

“Thank you very much for your reading and kind words. It’s great to have the cards validate what I’m feeling!” (male)

“Hello, Barbara, I would like to express my gratitude to you for doing this amazing reading for me. It really resonated with me and very accurately described how I feel about my situation. The reversed Magician becomes the next logical thing for me, as you accurately described it.
Actually, I’m a Tarot reader myself and the advice you have given me feels very reassuring and calming. Deep down, I already know these things, but it is always so hard to trust them and be patient when that demon is constantly telling me that I’m not going to make it. So I’m very thankful to you for clearly setting these things apart for me and showing which voices I should listen to.
I love how you described the Hanged Man – with regards to creativity. My attitude towards this card is usually like – no please, just not the Hanged Man. But the way you put it all together really feels spot on. Also, you have given me a couple of good ideas to exploit in meditations, particularly with regards to personifying my fear so that I can interact with it more easily.
I also liked the way the reading was structured, the message was clear and the chosen spread, I think, suited my question very well. So all in all I am very satisfied, and most of all happy, that this reading helps me view my situation more objectively. Besides, it is always very interesting to see how fellow Tarot readers do it. My best wishes to you.”  (female)

“Thank you for your insightful reading. You are an excellent reader and facilitator and I learned a lot about [my situation]. I feel relieved to have a plan in mind to be ready for the job change when it comes.”  (female) 

“This was.. amazing! Thank you so much for this!! I know it must have been complicated, but I feel something right about this! I have not found the right information for any of this [before now], only clues with no order through my dreams. Thank you SO much Barbara!”  (female)

“Thank you for doing this for me. It always gives me immense pleasure whenever you do the reading for me and I am truly happy right now. Thank you. I feel quite relieved and yes, as you said, I hope to lay a strong foundation for a better future.You are a great human being and I cannot thank you enough.”  (female)

“Thank you for the reading. You are right. I have had loss in my life that has thrown me off course of what I want in life. I have been trying to heal and find balance. Thank you, and I will get back on the path for the life I want.”  (female)

“Hi, Barbara! Thank you for my reading! I think that my overall message is that the divine light and prominence of awareness that I obsess about is already with me in the here and now. I forget how good it is to be someone who can be available to brighten a day or be present for anyone in a space which brings comfort to lots of people. I think the lesson about the glowing, loving center of each of these cards is that my purpose exists where I am. Thank you!”  (female)

“Thank you for delivering this reading in a timely fashion and for making it very clear and easy to understand. I appreciate that from a non-reader point of view. Your reading has certainly provided me with food for thought and I have found myself thinking about it a lot.”  (female)

Aha! what a lovely reading. Your advice resonates with me deeply. Thank you so very much. This really backs up a lot of things I have been working on. It is reassuring to know I am going in the right direction. Thank you again. I would say this was spot on.”  (female)

“Thank you for the reading. It was very helpful in that I didn’t think I had any fears to work on but, as I look more closely, I realize there are, so I will work on them. I also tend to look over the obvious sometimes, not realizing I’m already immersed in the love of Spirit and that I need to see the spark within. The feelings of unworthiness does not resonate with me… So it may be that the feeling is unconscious. When you asked me what the glowing light that the Divine Mother was holding is… my first thought was that it was myself. I had that thought as I was reading your description of the cards and then you left the same thought at the end of the reading!”
(After another reading she wrote…)
“Thank you once again, those last two cards are extremely helpful. I’ve been thinking about the [first] reading and digging deeper, and I have started to come up with the same answers you just gave me. Your answers actually helped me to take it even further. Your messages are beautiful and spot on! I hope one day to be able to read tarot as well as you. Just starting to learn. A very heart felt thanks again.”  (female)

“That was amazing and so on point. Thank you so much. Such a relief to know there is still a positive path for us. Thank you.”  (female)

“Thank you for the reading. You were correct in how I have been feeling. I’ve wanted nothing but goodness in my life since my mother’s passing. That is why I took on a job as a nurse. I wanted to do a job that was more suited to me. It was interesting what you said about my birthday. I’m excited for new beginnings. Thank you again.”  (female)

Weight Loss Tarot Journal - A Meditation for Me and My Dad - Light Seer’s Tarot

November 23, 2019

What am I likely to find in today’s meditations?
card drawn  -  2 of Cups reversed foundation card  -  Strength deck - Light Seer’s Tarot _________________________________________
I am feeling a fear in my stomach about today’s upcoming meditations to help my and my father’s inner children. Not sure why I feel this way. Fear of the unknown? Fear I might not like something I learn about myself? Not sure.
2 of Cups reversed  -  The energies here flow from the hands into similar golden bowls. But the card is reversed and the energies seem to flow upward. For release? The LWB says this card reversed refers to emotional blocks, not being open to receiving love, and healing past traumas. That sure fits what I will be working on today.  
Foundation card - Strength  -  The card at the bottom of the deck shows the energies surrounding the question asked. I wasn’t going to look at it for this reading but a nudge told me I should. When I turned it over, it was obvious why I had gotte…

Tarot Card of the Day - On the Trump Impeachment

I will preface by saying I am a registered Independent and not a Trump fan. I am alarmed at what I see him and his henchmen doing to our nation through consistent lying and abuses of power.

We tend to draw cards on our worries and today I drew some cards on what might be coming for Trump and, thereby, our nation.  _________________________________________
Will Trump be forced out soon?
5 of Coins reversed + Clarifier Card- 7 of Coins Foundation Card- 9 of Wands
deck used - Tarot Grand Luxe

The cards seem to be saying that Trump will not be forced out soon. He will receive help (5 of Coins reversed) from the Russians (7 of Coins).7 of Coins is my card for the Russians.

Alternatively, the cards could be saying that more information about Trump’s Russian help will come to light but, since my question has to do with Trump’s removal, I will assume the first interpretation is correct in this context.

Foundation Card - 9 of Wands - The Foundation card is …

Tarot Card of the Day - a Page of Swords as the Trump Impeachment Trial Begins - Tarot Grand Luxe

January 21, 2020

Will justice be served in the Trump impeachment trial?
Page of Swords
Tarot Grand Luxe _________________________________________
This Page, with her prominent dagger, has been showing up in many of my Trump readings. Today, it feels like she is saying that more information is going to come out in the course of this trial and it is going to bring problems for McConnell and Trump. The push right now at the White House and in the Senate leadership seems to be geared to hide the truth and even the trial itself. They don’t want the truth of Trump’s behavior to be known.

But this Page is an analyst. She sees and understands truth, no matter what subterfuge others are trying to maneuver in front of her. And that brooch, with its blue feathers, is over her left eye, the side of connection to the feminine and the inner currents of intuition. The blue feathers connect to Spirit. So this page doesn’t just have a logical mind; she connects to her intuitive side, too. Her inner knowi…

Weight Loss Tarot Journal - Staying on the Path - Gaian Tarot - 7 of Air (Swords)

December 5, 2019
What is a good thing for me to be aware of today?
7 of Air (Swords)
Deck used - Gaian Tarot
When I first drew this card, I was a bit surprised. My understanding of the traditional Rider-Waite version of the 7 of Swords is a thief getting away with stealing. But this image implies something different. In the Gaian Tarot deck, this card is about making a decision to either stay on the trail you are already traveling or looking further to see if there is a revised route that could be even better.

What first jumped out to me was the map, with the mountains drawn in the distance. Sure enough, this hiker stands at a distance from the mountains and is already on the way. But the mountains aren’t the destination - the first lake is. Or so s/he thought when she began this journey. The first lake is where most travelers go. That is the weight loss goal. She’s not there yet but, from her current vantage point, she now has a wider view. She…

Tarot Card of the Day - Ace of Cups on a Wedding Day - Druidcraft Tarot

December 21, 2019
I asked for a message for today and drew the Ace of Cups

DruidCraft Tarot

What a perfect card for today...  I am officiating a wedding this afternoon. 
A wedding is a time of emotional new beginnings for the newlyweds and for all those who love them.  And lucky me, I will get to share in that love and joy today. 
This card is a beautiful reflection of the deeply sincere human emotions we experience at a wedding, as we recognize ourselves in the words of hope and promise that surround the wedding couple. 
Tarot is an amazing mirror of our lives.
... Comments always welcome and appreciated. πŸ’šπŸŒΏ

Tarot Card of the Day - 10 of Boons (Pentacles) - Forest of Enchantment Tarot

What is a good message for today?
10 of Boons (Pentacles) reversed 
Deck used - Forest of Enchantment Tarot

Well this message is clear… the Thanksgiving holiday is over. It was wonderful spending days with family, immersed in fun, love and happiness, but all good things have their time. Now it is time to get back to work and normal daily life.

This card is totally right, though. Family is truly a huge boon and blessing in my life... and more family time over the Christmas holidays are right around the corner. 😊❤️

Trump Impeachment Trial - The Tower - Tarot Grand Luxe

January 23, 2020
Will the Senate vote to remove Trump?
The Tower
Tarot Grand Luxe

As I do Tarot draws about the Trump impeachment trial and post some here, I preface by saying that I am not a fan of our current president. I feel he is a danger to our nation and our ideals and he has corrupted our government. Or perhaps I should say that because his own corruption is so blatant and pervasive, he is bringing the corruption in our government into the light. What I am seeing in Trump and his henchmen is heartbreaking. They are far removed from my own concept of our nation, its principles and what I believe us to be and stand for.

While watching and experiencing this pivotal point in our nation’s history, I am curious to see how the Tarot reflects that. My choice of deck is important. I really like the Tarot Grand Luxe. It is modern, bold, unequivocal and reads very well for me. It is especially powerful for readings on Trump and politics so I bought …

Tarot Card of the Day - Love and Christmas Cookies - The Lovers - Osho Zen Tarot

How I am feeling about this past weekend.
The Lovers
Osho Zen Tarot
This card is right on point. I am still in the glow of spending happy time with my family this past weekend. The over-all meanings of this card are love and connection, with an added element of choice. And all of that showed up this weekend.

The first meaning of The Lovers card is love and connection. We have an annual Family Cookie Day, where we all gather to decorate Christmas cookies. This year it turned into Family Cookie Weekend. The grandkids came over on Saturday to help me roll, cut and bake the cookies and then spend the night. Their parents came over the following morning to decorate the cookies with them. It is always fun having everyone over for this event but having the kids cut and bake the cookies was not a practical idea. Aside from the fact that it was a HUGE mess (oh my goodness!), most of the young hands are not yet skilled enough for rolling the dough. Their m…

Weight Loss Tarot Journal - Wounded Inner Child Meditations - Osho Zen Tarot

November 25, 2019

How am I feeling about my meditations this past weekend?
Participation (4 of Wands)  
Osho Zen Tarot _________________________________________

My meditations to deal with inner child issues for myself and my father were illuminating, moving and deeply effective. I was surprised at the things I found and how I was able to deal with them in powerful ways. It was a giant step forward for me in my personal growth and the reverberations will make a huge difference in my life and my efforts to find the roots of my weight loss issues.

I am so thankful to friends who told me about online guided meditations. I had no idea those free resources are available and was amazed at how many there were. Two sites that were particularly helpful were The Honest Guys and Ellen Sirena. I also used a Biddy Tarot meditation on The High Priestess that helped me see and understand important connections.

My deep appreciation to all those putting such important help out there for all of us to use.
