The Hit List - Birthday wishes for World Central Kitchen

Note: I sent this letter to my newsletter subscribers and shared it on social media – I thought I would share it here on the blog to boost my fundraiser.

My birthday is coming up in a few days (holla to all my fellow Geminis!). Of course, I want cake. (I always want cake.) But all joking aside, I don’t need the extra calories. Frankly, I don’t have any big wishes as I am in the midst of decluttering. I have too much stuff.

However, there is one thing I would love. I created a fundraiser for World Central Kitchen (WCK), and I hope that you can support me. I’ve supported World Central Kitchen for a few years because I love their mission – and I know how the power of a good meal can provide so much in times of crisis.

For over a decade, World Central Kitchen has been first to the frontlines, providing meals in response to humanitarian, climate, and community crises. Through volcanic eruptions, hurricanes, explosions, humanitarian crises, and the COVID-19 pandemic, WCK has provided hundreds of millions of fresh, nourishing meals for impacted communities.

My goal is to reach $5000.00 by the end of June – long after Gemini season has come and gone.

A donation to my campaign would go a long way toward supporting communities with dignity and hope in their time of greatest need. As World Central Kitchen founder Chef José Andrés powerfully stated, “Wherever there’s a fight so hungry people may eat, we will be there—we must be there.”

Please consider supporting my fundraiser or sharing my page to raise support among your network. I’m looking forward to what we can accomplish together.

You can make your donation right here.

Doing a Tarot reading for someone who’s battling an illness can be…tricky. Steer your client away from yes-or-no questions. Choose your words very mindfully.

Your fate is never set in stone. In every moment, you have the power to change your future. You can step left instead of right. Zig instead of zag. Ask for help instead of staying silent. Or, choose to view one of your flaws as a gift: Twist Your Fate: Manifest Success with Astrology and Tarot.

Traditional Tarot decks can be scary for young children. Cards like The Tower, The Hanged Man, and The Death card may not be appropriate for little ones. That’s why I recommend getting a kid-friendly deck…like this one: Tarot For Kids.

A Tarot deck contains 78 cards. You can memorize what each card means. But you’ll become a much more confident reader once you stop memorizing and tune into your intuition, instead: Tarot: No Questions Asked: Mastering the Art of Intuitive Reading.

Prefer to listen to your tarot lessons? Check this out: Tarot: No Questions Asked: Mastering the Art of Intuitive Reading is available as an audiobook.

Sure, you know what Mercury Retrograde means. But what about Jupiter Retrograde? Or the Void Moon? Or Pluto Return? Expand your astrology knowledge with this fun and informative book: Astrology for Real Life: A Workbook for Beginners (A No B.S. Guide for the Astro-Curious).

There is an audio version if you prefer: Astrology For Real Life.

A new tarot deck can give you fresh interpretations. Check out The Uncommon Tarot – a gorgeous deck rich in symbolism: The Uncommon Tarot: A Contemporary Reimagining of an Ancient Oracle.

New to Tarot? I recommend: The Tarot Coloring Book. There’s a coloring sheet for every card in the deck. As you color the images, you’ll notice symbols and messages. A great way to familiarize yourself with the deck—plus coloring is fun and relaxing, too. The Tarot Coloring Book.

People have asked, “What’s Tarot For Troubled Times about?” In a word: “Strength.” It’s a book about how to use your Tarot deck (and other sacred arts/tools/rituals) to keep your mind clear and keep you feeling powerful and strong… so you can get out there and create a better world. Tarot For Troubled Times.
