It Won’t Be Long – 9 of Cups (Lennon/McCartney) With The Beatles, 1963 By late 1963, the Beatles were a phenomenon in their native UK. Anyone who doubted if they could last were sure to be won over from the first notes of their second album; “It Won’t Be Long” is the fantastically energetic opener…
We all have an immense source of truth, wisdom, and love deep inside of us. It resides in our core, within our very essence, and is available to us at any time. Yet this powerful inner source is difficult to access until we’ve learned a method for doing so.
Intuitive methods give us access to that profound inner source. Some popular choices include:
- creativity through art or music
- quiet time in nature
- extended sessions of exercise
Tarot works similarly to these practices because it quiets the mind so that the soul can be heard. Tarot is unique in that it’s a deck of 78 fascinating picture cards, each a symbol for some aspect of ourselves and our lives. Holding the deck is akin to having an entire world of possibilities at our fingertips.
Carl Jung wrote extensively about how symbols are a path to the powerful world of the subconscious. By engaging with this wonderful language of symbols called “Tarot”, we transcend the limits of our normal day-to-day awareness. We can learn the deep, hidden wisdom that exists inside of us through this fascinating method.
Tarot helps us see the Big Picture. Tarot awakens our imagination. Tarot inspires us to live authentically and lovingly.
And tarot also happens to be FUN.
Hi, I’m Frank. Tarot helped awaken me to the profound gifts of wisdom and love that exist deep within us all. I must admit that for the first 40 years of my life I’d never even considered using tarot. I was a very “reasonable” guy who held the common misconception that it was used just for “fortune telling”. But then something beautiful happened, and I’ve been using this magical little deck of cards for intuitive guidance ever since.
Tarot helps me stay connected to my soul’s wisdom and love, which is why I’m so passionate about sharing this gift with others. I love teaching tarot to those who want to become more mindful, intuitive, and engaged with life. I am a Certified Professional Coach who lovingly supports those who are feeling called to become their most authentic, realized selves.

See for Yourself
Choose a Card. Listen for Your Intuition.
First, take a deep breath and relax. Invite your intuition to share its wisdom.
Second, think of a situation in your life you would like clarity on. Relationship, job, life goals, whatever.
Third, ask a question. I suggest avoiding a “fortune-telling” type of question aimed at predicting your future.
(Not recommended: “What will happen to me regarding…?”)
Instead, ask a question that empowers you to create your own future.
(More like this: “What intuitive message can help guide me regarding…?”)
Next, click on the image to reveal your card. Click on the card again to read its description.
Finally, apply the card’s meaning to your situation. Listen for your intuition.
*Be open to getting an “Aha!” moment of clarity*
Feel free to ask a follow up question, shuffle the deck, and pick another one.

TRUMP & The TOWER
He may not be president anymore (for now, at least) but we’re still very much living in the Age of Trump. What does this mean and how long will it last? Are he and his followers tearing down our country or liberating it from its outworn and corrupted ways?
Similar to when we gaze at a tarot card, our answers to these questions depend on our personal perspective. Regardless of where you stand politically, it’s undeniable that in terms of tarot archetypes, we are living in the Age of the Tower. We saw it play out before our eyes on January 6, 2021. If you’re curious about how Trump and the tarot’s Tower are linked, revealing a unique perspective on these crazy times we’re living in, please read:
