Yesterday, the Supreme Court stuck down Roe Vs Wade. Although shocking, it was no surprise. Many of us have been warning people this day would come for some time.
This is a scary time – and it’s too easy to give into despondence.
But hear this: that is what they want. When you give up the fight, they win. Every time you don’t vote or ignore what’s happening because you just can’t, the door opens wider for extremists to have their way.
You might be asking: what do we do now?
Answer: fight like hell.
:: Voting in every election.
:: Support candidates who will fight to protect our rights – including local representatives. Can’t find any in your neighborhood? RUN FOR OFFICE.
:: Write or call your representatives. Let them know this is NOT cool and they don’t get your vote ever again.
:: Donate to organizations that protect reproductive freedom, marriage equality, and other important rights.
:: Speak up. Do not allow this to silence you.
Lastly, remember that any law can be changed at any time. Think of it this way: 50 years ago, we got Roe passed. Now they took that right away. This can change again. And it WILL.
Never take hard-won rights for granted.

How to Use Tarot For Decision Making and Problem Solving. Change is inevitable. You will go through many cycles and personal transformations in your life. You might feel lost or unsure of your true purpose or next move. It’s how you respond to change and its inherent challenges that matter. Tarot can connect you with your intuition to help illuminate the path forward. In this class, I’ll walk you through the basics of tarot reading and I’ll teach you my four favorite spreads for making decisions. (Psst…I’m a horribly indecisive person – tarot is my go-to when I’m stuck in analysis paralysis!). This is an evergreen course. Sign up any time, and go through the lessons at your own pace.
