Wordsmithing Magic from the Crossroads

Come on In

Thanks for checking out my new digital home!

After many decades of offering my services for thousands of clients as a personal Tarot consultant, I am finally taking my own advice and following my dream of being a full-time writer.

Kick back, get comfy, and let me show you around the nest.

Magical Fiction

I have a very magical story that came to me last Summer, and after months of preliminary work (not quite a first draft), I will eventually dive back into it. And believe me, there are several other inklings also waiting their turn. Updates will be posted in the “Magical Fiction” link.

Tarot Books

But first, you see, I have two Tarot books that have been pulling on my heart, yanking my shirtsleeve, whispering in my ear (sometimes via friends and clients!), and pretty much calling to me day and night. For years! They really want to find their way into your hands, so I am grateful to at last be fully dedicated to making that happen.


I will be blogging about this new chapter in my life, as well as noting seasonal and ceremonial observances, and I would love your companionship as this next chapter unfolds. So if you are not already signed up for my newsletter, please join me!

Weekly Tarot

By joining, you will also receive my ongoing Card of the Week briefings every Monday. As my long-time subscribers know, these essays are a thorough overview of the Tarot, one card at a time, and often intermingled with the current events and astrology of the week as well.

Here on my site, my blog can be found as one link, and my current Card of the Week is also linked in its own location. The Card will change every week, and the blog will be saved over time.

Hungry for a Book Right Now?

Currently, the only book that is published yet is my beloved cookbook, Kind Veggie Burritos. By clicking on its link, you’ll go to its own “Deadicated” website, where you can find out more and even order a copy if you wish.


You might already know how much I love to teach, and I am one of our area’s most trusted and well-known Tarot instructors.

It was my honor to teach online in the NC State OLLI program in May. Although I was finally persuaded that Zoom classes are not out of the question for me, I prefer to meet with my students in person.

So as soon as classroom space becomes available again, I will resume offering my popular Tarot Without Tears classes. I am also planning to reopen the specialty topic workshops that I call the Tarot Boutique. These, along with other special events that I facilitate (like my annual Advent Sun Wreath Ceremony) will be found in the Events link.

And thank you to everyone who joined in my site launch contest! That was lots of fun, and I hope you will continue to enjoy the inspiring quotes I will be choosing for you every week (down at the bottom of your screen).

Another Handy Tidbit for Finding Your Way Around

Any time you want to go back to the starting point “home” screen, where all the links are condensed together (or just to admire the beautiful watercolor background in its entirety), simply click on my owl logo.

So, what about the Crossroads Part, Beth?

“All magic, all spirit, all life and death, begins and ends at the Crossroads.”
RJ Stewart, The Spirit Cord

For many years, I have been a student of the legendary RJ Stewart and his partner Anastacia Nutt. I am especially in love with the work that collaborates with the Underworld realms and the ancient races that our ancestors knew by many, many names, including the Sidhe, the Cousins, the Shining Ones, and the Tuatha Dé Danann.

I have dedicated myself to promoting healing and friendship between the human world and the primal world.

All of my magic, including the essence of my creative work, draws from the Four Hidden Ways that join together at the Crossroads. It is a place of peace where all orders of life gather in harmony and mutual respect. The Crossroads is a wellspring for my deepest heart, and it is from there that I share my words and my craft with you.


Words not only describe what they say,
but also suggest what can never be said.
