The new way of doing things



Thank you for stopping by.

The year 2020 will be remembered for all the things that we let go of and all the changes we made in the blink of an eye. How I do readings is just one of those things. 

Until further notice readings will be done by phone or on Zoom. Cost remains at the special rate of $70 for me and $9.10 for the government. Total $79.10 regardless of how long the reading is. This rate will remain in place until we are healthy enough to feel free to hug again.

Parties can be done on Zoom. Set up a laptop or tablet in a room so that your guests can enjoy privacy. I will send a Zoom invitation for each participant. They click in and away we go. These readings are generally half an hour. Cost for these is $79.10

I know many of you like to join me in my magical reading room. I get it. I find it really hard to talk wearing a mask. And I don't want to put up a wall between us. The elevator in my building is going to be rebuilt this winter. That means more people in contact with each other. Numbers are creeping up again as the infection rate rises again.

So, do these phone and Zoom readings really work. Yes, they really do. And the oddest thing has happened over the last few months as I do these readings. I can travel more. I can find your energy and the energy of others who are important to you or may be a significant factor in your life at the moment. I feel that my readings are deeper and stronger these days. 

I want to continue to offer you the best possible reading. This feels like the right way to go at the moment. I hope to hear from you because I really enjoy helping so many of you on your journey.

You can make an appointment right here

You can email me at

You can phone or text me at 613-328-6128

I will be all done camping by September 9th and back full time albeit by phone or Zoom. 

Thank you

We will be using the Picnic Shelter in the Day Use area of the park. It does not matter what the weather is doing, we will have lots of things to keep us busy or not as suits you.

We plan to talk about Tarot and the Earth, Ritual and Magic and Tarot and the Weather. There will be time to play, do a little art interpretation is you like, cast charms or people (sort of), share at a pot luck lunch, and wander in nature. Marilyn plans to sit on the shores of Lake Ontario and do a little scrying. You can join her if you wish.

You are also welcome to camp at Presqu'ile Provincial Park on your own site if you wish. We will be camping in the Trail's End campground. Or just come for the day. The park is at Brighton Ontario just a little over an hour from Kingston.

Bring something for a pot luck lunch. Or if you have food concerns bring your own lunch. Bring a lawn chair. Weather gear if needed. Walking in the rain is one of the most soothing things I have ever done. And bring sunscreen, hats and swimsuit. I predict a lovely summer day for all of us. Bring your tarot, lenormand, charms and a notebook and pen.

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,
Marilyn Shannon
