In The Cards: King of Clubs

In The Cards: King of Clubs


I read the king of clubs much as I would the King of Wands in a Tarot reading, with two particular aspects to the clubs/wands/batons card. The obvious facet is leadership.

Ever notice how grass and weeds don’t care about the internet?

It’s that time of year again when I take some time off from blogging and doing readings to take my youngling to the pool and brunch at IHOP and maybe try to keep the back yard from imitating a scene from Jumanji.
