Review: Illuminara - Intuitive Journal With Cards by Elaine Clayton

The word intuitive works on many levels, some may use the word to mean psychic while others see it as a connection between the  concious and personal unconcious. Such is the case with set of cards and the journal that accompanies it.  The  cards  have no meaning written below them, no jacks or queens, but rather the author’s own art, street scenes, dogs, birds etc. Seemingly random they all trigger different feelings, memories, thoughts and ideas. I can see where the author is going with this system and I think it is brilliant! As she quotes in her book:
“A the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want.” ~ Lao Tzu
This wonderful journaling book and card set is a great step in tapping into your own inner knowledge and discovering your own inner interpretive library.

Ghosts of Buffalo by Tim Shaw - Review by Katie Boyd

I am usually busy writing books myself and never get much time to read other books,until my publisher sent me Ghosts of Buffalo by my good friend Tim Shaw. I read the book cover to cover in about two hours. It is a full color book with tons of wonderful legends and historical facts regarding some of the most incredible haunted places in Buffalo NY. Tim also writes about his time as a re-enactor at well known Fort Niagara, and his experiences with the spirits that still haunt the military site. What I loved about this book was the beautiful colored pictures and being a huge history buff , I found the back stories very intriguing. I suggest if anyone loves haunted history and NY, get this book because you will not be disappointed.

Order Ghosts of Buffalo by visiting or visit

How To Make A Psi-Wheel

I borrowed this wonderful article from a wonderful site dedicated to discovering the true potential of the mind! A psi wheel is quite simple to set up and requires very basic materials. You probably have everything you need to make a psi wheel laying around your house right now. All it takes to make your own PSI wheel is a small square (approximately 2.5x2.5 inches) of a piece of paper or aluminum foil, a regular sewing needle, and a small lump of clay or a book to hold the needle in an upright position.  Below is the instruction on how to make a psi wheel:
  1. Cut a square piece of paper about 2.5x2.5 inches, but a little smaller or larger will still work most of the time.
  2. Fold the piece of paper diagonally to form a triangle. Open the paper back and simply fold the opposite corner over to form another triangle.
  3. Turn the paper over.
  4. Fold the paper in half both ways.
  5. Push in the opposite corners towards the center to make it as a little "hat" with the middle pointing up and the sides slightly bended down.
Now, it's all ready and folded up in the way it should. In this way, it will keep balanced when you place it on top of the needle and it will easily spin around when right energies is applied. Then, just to see how it functions, gently blow on the paper wheel (psi wheel), and you will see it spin gently and stable around on top. If there is too much friction making it hard to spin, fold it slightly more leaving the top tip more wide so it doesn't get stuck on the top of the needle. You can refer to the illustration below to get more understanding on how to make a psi wheel.

Hi Lovelies! It's November and time for your tarotscopes!! This month I used the Pirate Tarot authored by Carrie and Lucas Aodio with illustrations by Liz ‘Galindorf’ Harper.
If you are a pirate enthusiast, fan of woodcarvings or just like a deck that has that element of fun then the Pirate Tarot is for you! It was a blast to read these cards! The Major and Minor Arcana has been changed to reference pirate life with the High Priestess becoming the Figurehead, rather than royals there are now Captains, Lady Captains, First Mates and Cabin Boys. It is a wonderfully exciting deck to read, the art itself looks like real woodcuts, the intricate artwork will keep your eyes entertained for hours. Having gone through the deck multiple times in doing the Tarotscopes time and again I found bits in the picture I hadn’t noticed before! Its a playful deck that still keeps the mystical tradition of the tarot! Get the deck at Now let's get on to the Tarotscopes!!

Scorpio -  Happy Birthday Scorpio! The Cabin Boy of Coins peeks in at the beginning of the month bestowing a sense of accomplishment through education or learning a new task! The Nine of Cups stops by mid-November bringing with him a sense of satisfaction and cheer! At the end of the month you meet the Lady Captain of Pistols giving you a sense of sexuality, and a boost of extra energy.

Aries - You begin the month in the Two of Pistols, indicating a feeling of satisfaction and at the same time restlessness. You know the project is near complete or you’ve done a good job but your ready to move onto the next task. You move into the Nine of Coins midmonth bringing with it a sense of overall success and accomplishment! At the end of the month the Captain of Cups visits you burdening you with responsibility. You may feel a smidgen melancholy and like the weight of the world is on your shoulders. Remember to organize tasks so they are not so overwhelming!

Taurus - The Two of Swords kicks off November, indicating the need for some major decision making. Don’t take to much time to consider options! If you don’t make one, Universe will do it for you! Mid-month brings the Ace of Cups, sending off the sense of contentment and joy! For those would be mothers trying to conceive  mid- November would be a great time to try as the Ace of Cups also denotes fertility. You end the month with the Justice card, giving you a sense of balance and responsibility.

Stick to your guns no matter the opposition, your in the right and on the correct path! You end the month with Strength, telling you to have patience! Everything will seem as if it is moving in slow motion, but that is because you are moving in hyperspeed!

Leo - Death comes to you at the beginning of the month (not literally) bring with it closure and transition. You will feel as if a burden has lifted, you’ve gotten the answer you seek and can finally move forward! The middle of November the Seven of Pistols stops by telling you that just because your right doesn’t mean you need to argue the point. It is great to have conviction, but in this instance it does not help the situation, agree to disagree! At the end of the month you move into the First Mate of Cups who gives you a helping hand in revamping your love life.

At the end of the month your imagination and psychic sense will be at a high pay attention and use your creative self, so says the Moon.

Capricorn - Take your time, consider all of your options, allow for reflection! That is the message of the Seven of Coins for you at the beginning of the month! Half way through November you encounter the World which opens you to the feeling of integration on a large scale, a feeling of belonging and a clear mind so you can tie up loose ends! At the end of the month you meet the Four of Coins who tells you to be frugal with
your money, you will be happy you saved some cash on the side as you may have some unexpected expenses.

Aquarius - 
At the beginning of November you enter the Four of Pistols giving you a sense of freedom
and a reason to celebrate! Take joy in this moment and milk it for all it’s worth! Midmonth the Cabin Boy of Pistols stops in continuing to provide positive energy in the form of enthusiasm. This will also be the time
when you will have a lot of new and innovative ideas. Carry a notebook to help you keep track. At the end of the month Temperance pops by reminding you that with the good comes the bad and try to keep in balance and harmony!

Pisces - You are greeted by the Three of Cups bringing with it the gift of teamwork, and friendship. Embrace the ability to create new connections and network, network, network! This is important as you are visited by the Five of Coins later in the month giving you a need for mutual support and a lack of funds. No worries though it is a passing phase as at the end of the month you meet up with The Bosun, who gives you some information which will greatly help your financial situation. This could be anything from a new job opportunity to what stocks to invest in.
