Thinking too loud…

I did a reading recently for a woman and ended with the 8 of cups, walking away with wisdom, and she told me she wanted to leave New York City and go somewhere else.  ‘Like Denver?’ I asked.  And she and her friend looked at me, spooked, and said, we were just talking Denver before we came to you.  And I laughed and said well you must have been thinking a bit too loudly and I picked it up.

I can’t read minds and I definitely can’t get readings off objects.  But occasionally, if you have just been talking/worrying about something, I happen to say it in the next sentence.  I know I do this because people often comment on it.   There is something about focusing on the cards, and on the person, which settles me and if you are broadcasting, I can pick it up; which is why I only do 3 readings a day – to keep the focus sharp.

Sometimes the idea of ending is worse than the reality

Irina Charny,  Solititude 
I did a reading recently for one of my regulars, who has been going through a very difficult patch with her boyfriend.  He was treating her more and more badly as his parents’ disapproval of the relationship hardened.  She would often weep during readings, asking if it would all turn out okay.  The cards were not reassuring. 

I hadn’t seen her for about 6 months when she came again, and her cards were so much brighter this time,   she had found her Queen ofSwords and her outcome was the Knight of Cups, she is riding in the right direction. How had she turned the relationship around? 

Irina Charny,  Fortuna
The answer was that she hadn’t. She had finally broken up with him.  And as often turns out, the idea of breaking up with him was much more terrifying than the reality.  She had clung to a difficult and demoralizing relationship out of love but also fear.  And when she finally broke it off (after finding out he was seeing another girl at the same time!) she felt relieved and empowered.  And her cards were much more hopeful, the King of Pentacles hovering in the possible outcome.
