Two of Swords from The Tarot Table Talks

Hello and Welcome

It is a beautiful spring day here in Eastern Ontario. The wind still has a wee bite to it. The world still turns albeit a bit wobbly these days. Or so it seems. The Tarot Table always has advice for us and me in particular. It never fails to bring me hope and reminds me to carry on being Miss Fearless.

Lately it has been the Two of Swords chatting away to us. For many years I struggled with this card and could never quite figure out why it was called Harmony. So I studied it, and listened to its many messages. And of course I read up on it. This card often depicts a woman sitting outside, blindfolded and holding two large swords upright as her arms cross her heart. No harmony suggested here I thought.

From the Elora Tarot: this card created by Linda Risacher Copp



The 2 of Swords seems to be suggesting that if we focus on creating and finding harmony we could move forward. Harmony is often possible when we take the time to ask ourselves "What am I failing to see here?" 

This card always asks me to find the points of agreement rather the ones of disagreement. Finding the points to disagree about always seems a little bit easier when things are not going our way. And yet, it is at that very moment that we need to pause and seek answers in unlikely places. Harmony.  Deep breath. Onward we go. We are all in this together. 

See you next time,

When is it time to move on? The Tarot Table Talks

The Tarot Table Talks

How do I move on? Slowly. When you are done waiting I always say. Waiting to feel better. Waiting to feel included. Waiting for the right time. When cozy slippers and time alone are waiting in disguise.

 Know there are people, places and opportunities waiting for you to open up and shine your light. Waiting steals our life from us. We help people here find the best way to start living again. 

Sometimes, actually quite often the most difficult thing to do is start. Start with one thing that you like doing. Start the rest will follow. Waiting ends. And the rewards are fantastic. 

Cheering you on as Always

Spring! Getting out and about: classes and events



Hello! It is good to be sharing with you here. The picture above is an old favourite from my childhood. They are called Dutchman's Breeches and grow on the hill behind the Purple Door Books and Gifts on Old River Road just off the 1000 Island Parkway.

I will be teaching and reading at the Purple Door in April and May. Here are the details. Call Linda Scallion at the Purple Door to register or book your reading at 613-923-5320

 The Court Cards of Tarot with Marilyn Shannon April 14, 12 to 4 pm. Your investment $30
Personality Archetypes in the Tarot: Sounds a bit scary doesn’t it? It doesn’t have to be. The People cards or Court Cards of the Tarot introduce us to personality types. Once we understand each of these 16 cards as a personality at different stages of life they open up our understanding of people and the Tarot. I used to dread seeing Court Cards in a reading. Now they tell me all sorts of things. Join us and you will hear the message of the Courts as never before. No experience needed. Bring a Tarot deck and note book and pen.
Marilyn Shannon has been studying Tarot cards since she was 12. Now a few years later she loves to teach and share what Tarot can bring to our lives. She is the owner at Kingstonpsychic.com. You may have seen her show ‘Psychic Roundtable’ on Your TV Cogeco Kingston and Napanee.

Saturday May 12, 2018 10 to 4 pm. It must be Spring! Marilyn Shannon returns to the Purple Door Books and Gifts to read with her Tarot, Lenormand and Crystals for you. Spirit often whispers important messages into Marilyn’s right ear. Come and see what messages are waiting for you. Its Mother’s Day weekend. Treat yourself to a reading and shopping. Readings are $60 for a half hour; 45 minutes is $75 and an hour is $90. Marilyn looks forward to reading for you soon.

One slight change to note: We are taking an introductory Astrology course for six weeks on Tuesdays at the Purple Door. Please note that the Psychic Roundtable at Marilyn's will be held on Monday April 9 and Monday May 7 instead of our usual Tuesday evening get together. Call me for details at 613-549-2438

Where to find me?
Friday April 20th at the Portuguese Cultural Club at 959 Division St for their Third Annual Fundraiser for Girls Night Out. This event is usually sold out. Call Karen of Wooden It Be Charming at 613-583-1090 for more information. I will be doing mini-readings for $20.

2018 The Year of the Party!
Yes I do readings at parties. This year sure seems to be the year to party. Contact me about reading at your party, event, bachelorlorette or tea party. 

Why do I do readings? Because a reading often helps people find out where they are stuck and offers options on how to move forward in a healthy sensible loving way.

I look forward to seeing you soon.

What is a reading? A Conference? A spiritual experience?

Hello Everyone,

People often ask, “What do you use to do a reading?” The quick answer is everything. When I am totally into your reading every part of me is listening and engaging with you and your energy. I am aware of feelings in my body and thoughts that are not mine. That starts when I shuffle the cards.

I use tools to make the process clear to you and I. Each tool offers a different set of information. Tarot and Lenormand cards, tumbled crystal stones, the crystal ball, the little voice in my head, the sensations I hear and feel. Sometimes I travel to those who are important to you to feel their energy and share with you what their message is today.

A reading is a many layered thing. Who knows what direction it will take as we begin? Each layer reveals more information that is being presented to you for your perusal if you will. Sometimes it takes a while before the meaning of this information is clear to you. Readings and their meanings evolve over time.

When we plan a conference we set out to offer you a many layered experience too. We hope that you will see how so many aspects of our life influence our intuition. The conference is billed as the Kingston Tarot Lenormand Conference as those are the main tools we will be focusing on. They are not the only tools you will be shown though.


Joanna Powell Colbert: Created The Gaian Tarot 
will be presenting in Kingston Ontario November 17 to 19 2017

Neither Tarot nor Lenormand cards can work if we don’t understand some basic ways of listening. Nature, the elements of air, water, fire and earth and the seasons of the year are all important in understanding Tarot and hearing its message. Joanna Powell Colbert is a wizard at presenting the many ways the elements and nature live in our daily life and speak to us from the cards. Joanna will teach us tools we can use every day not just when we pick up a tarot deck. Any time we tap into our intuition, we are feeling life.


Carrie Paris shows us how the Relative Tarot she created connects us to our ancestors
at the Kingston Tarot Lenormand Conference 

Carrie Paris will show us how to use Tarot and Lenormand to tap into our genetic history and how our life experiences and our ancestors’ lives guide us today. She will show us a whole range of tools to become aware of our intuition and the messages that we are asked to receive.

For me, I cannot do a reading without tapping into your soul and mine. Carrie presents from the notion of soul tending. Joanna shows us heart based tarot and living I think. Both are important in our lives as spiritual seekers. The cards just help us find the path.

Why should you attend our conference? Why are we so excited to be offering this opportunity? Because when we are all together we learn more easily, we each learn what we need and we experience community. All Spiritual Seekers are invited to join us November 17 to 19th 2017 in Kingston Ontario.  Limited to 100 seats and we are 80% sold out. I know that my readings will benefit deeply from this weekend immersion into heart based soul tending living.

What happens at a conference like this anyway?

Do you ever wonder about an event and think is it for me? What are they doing there? Here is the first of a series of You Tube presentations about the Kingston Tarot Lenormand Conference in Kingston Ontario Canada November 17 to 19 2017. In this video we chat about the Sunday morning workshop Carrie Paris is presenting. You will find a link that will help you figure out your birth cards and you will receive two questions and a technique on the question of Ancestral Love right at the end of the video. Enjoy.

We are all seeking something. Often that is found when we join with fellow seekers. See you in November.
Let me know if you have any more questions. And watch this site for more videos.

Some days we need to rest and spend time with our feelings be they good or bad. Spending time within often lets us see the gifts we have to offer others. And if someone is especially trying our patience, quiet reflection often let's us find the hidden message, the gift of the experience. Only then are we able to move forward and be our authentic self. And often we then become the teacher.
