Symbols of Power: Card Readings with Jess

What Are Card Readings And How Can They Help?

Lets be honest.  Card Readings have a rough reputation to overcome because they have been appropriated by the stereotypical 'bangled gypsy' who is eyeing your wallet and throwing you a line.  In eras past, cards were often used to 'tell your future' which isn't possible since the future has not and will not ever happen.  It will always be the present moment and it is in the present moment where we can change our future experiences.

Card Reading today is a powerful introspective tool that you can use at any time to regain clarity on any life situation.

Working with cards is about working with our thoughts and feelings through the use of artistic symbols.  When used with family and friends, card readings can improve communication skills with all the people in our lives, including ourselves.  In the same way our bodies need high quality food, our minds need to be fed high quality thoughts.  Learning the art of card reading is an elegant system for daily inner guidance which can increase hope, motivation, and creativity in every day life.   The symbols on the cards inspire such unpredictable conversations that I am always excited to find someone new to talk to and explore their meanings with.

 I offer readings from my home in Los Angeles with the following decks:

Animal Medicine Card Readings are Native American teachings which focus on the natural world of animals for inner guidance. All of life is related. The animals are our family on Earth. They are our teachers and our friends. Observing their unique behaviors and skills can show us how to improve and balance our own lives. I offer the Animal Totem reading and the Medicine Wheel reading. 

Wild Woods Tarot is a stunning adaptation of the classical Tarot which teaches ancient Druidic wisdom and Celtic energy healing techniques.  I offer the 1 hour Celtic Knot reading which consists of five cards as well as a Water Stone Healing.  This reading is very helpful in untangling miscommunication with someone, tying up loose ends on a project, as well as weaving magic into our every day lives.

If a picture speaks a thousand words, a symbol speaks a thousand pictures!

Animals are LIVING symbols of the cosmic design

    Could there be a more monster-like creature? Bats are the very symbol of monster in all of our story-telling traditions. But what is a monster?
