Tarot and Oracle on the Lake
Eclipse season began 10.25.22 meaning we are in amplified territory—beam of light breaking that happens every six months. This is like turning the computer off or on—a forced reset. New moon intentions get more intense. We are changing at a greater speed during an eclipse. It is also Scorpio season—death/rebirth time. The willingness to allow change through leaving that which no longer serves you and allowing it to die so transformation can occur at a deeper level so we can create our true desires and intentions using ways of behaving to make them manifest. We will receive the support from spirit to let go during this time Review of participant: Suzanne is a gifted medium who instantly tapped into a meaningful connection. Steele eased my first-time jitters with her kindness, taking her time, finding deeper guidance than I ever expected from a single reading. I found her reading possessed spot-on relevance and I felt her presence was warm, inviting, full of light and encouragement. I highly recommend her experience to anyone seeking higher guidance in any aspect of life, whether you've had prior readings with other mediums or if this is your first experience. I will definitely continue working with Suzanne because she exudes generosity of spirit and compassion beyond measure. Her reading was a pleasure, something I wish to experience again. Jenn Diamond
