Wordsmithing Magic from the Crossroads


Registration is now open for the final two of the Tarot Boutique’s Autumn Workshops ~

An Introduction to the Tarot Birth Cards

1-5:30pm, EDT
On Zoom, wherever you are
$80.00 USD
(Special offer: Sign up for both this workshop and our November class at the same time, and you’ll receive a $15.00 rebate after the final class).

One of the most fun (and easiest!) ways to get to know the Tarot is through how the numerology of your birthday aligns with the Tarot Major Arcana. Are you a Hermit/Moon? Or maybe your soul’s continuum moves from Chariot to Tower. On the other hand, you might be a Sun-Wheel-Magician!

If you have taken my Tarot without Tears class, then you know that the Tarot Birth Cards offer an intimate, user-friendly introduction to how the Tarot can be so much more than a divination tool. Through the lens of the Birth Cards, the Tarot offers an intimate understanding of your unique perspective and purpose in this incarnation. These particular cards can step up to become your most loyal friends and allies in the Tarot.

You’ll learn how the knowledge of your Tarot Profile can be put to practical use on a personal basis right away. Discover how being familiar with this technique will help you understand your friends, loved ones, and colleagues better. And you’ll come away with a fresh new appreciation for the depth and nuance of the Major Arcana like you’ve never experienced it.

BONUS: The first 20 people to register will receive a Soul Card herb bundle. I make these from my organic and responsibly harvested botanicals (many were grown here at Laurel Hill Cottage). They will augment your experience and insight into your Soul Card. Hence the slightly higher fee, to help cover my time and postage.
Sorry, I am not able to ship outside the continental U.S.

Plus, this class will give you a powerful context for our November Boutique…

The Circle of Healing and Breath:
Get to Know Your Green Allies

1-5:30pm Eastern Daylight Time
On Zoom, wherever you are
$70.00 USD

“In some Native languages the term for plants translates to “those who take care of us.” ~ Robin Wall Kimmerer, Braiding Sweetgrass

From the moment we draw our very first breath, the plants of the Earth are essential to our survival. But what if our relationship is even more rich and complex than we have ever imagined?

What if we are, in fact, conversing with them, singing with them, and guided by them, even as we breathe their gift of life, eat of their fruits, and are healed by their medicines?

Since prehistoric times, the knowledge of herbs and flowers has been a vital part of the healing and magical practice of spiritual practitioners on every path. From the monks of the medieval cloisters, to the wise women and shamans tending the needs of their villages, understanding and co-creating with plants has been a sacred trust.

This is not an introduction to gardening, nor is it a class on herbal medicine or cures.

Instead, join us for a highly experiential, magical afternoon of personally connecting to the intelligence and awareness of your Green friends and teachers. Together, we will be exploring their magical, energetic properties.

This will include working with the botanical allies that are connected to your Tarot Birth Cards, so the October Boutique is highly recommended.

Join Us As We Celebrate the Plant Spirit Energies of Herbs and Flowers.

bou·tique (bo͞oˈtēk), noun.
1. A small store selling fashionable clothes or accessories.
2. A business that serves a sophisticated or specialized clientele.
3. Unique, exclusive workshops for the discerning magical and/or Tarot connoisseur.

That’s you!

Until it is safe to meet in person, we are meeting via Zoom every month, which has greatly expanded our membership and the opportunity to welcome people from all backgrounds, not to mention Tarot celebrity guest presenters.

All levels of Tarot enthusiasts are cherished — from beginners to collectors to professionals. Ours is a very fun, eclectic group and newcomers are always celebrated. In addition, Triangle Tarot and Friends is  an online location for the global Tarot community to meet and share our love of the Tarot together.

Speaking Engagements

Over the years, I have given countless presentations to groups both large and small, both public and private, and for all ages, from high school classrooms to retirement homes. My topics have included the Tarot, of course, but I also love inspiring people to expand their understanding of intuitive, spiritual, and magical practices.

I would be delighted to talk to your group, or teach for your facility or program. Just ask!Personal Photo of Beth giving a lecture for the Spiritual Frontiers Fellowship audience
