Hey guys! Julian here. It has been an exhausting month. Couple of months. Year? I don’t know. I’m pretty much too exhausted from anxiety to really calculate it! My (clinical) anxiety has been overwhelming lately and I’ve struggled to even go to work. BUT. Many good things are happening too. I had gotten badly distracted… Continue reading Weekly Update 3/6/18 – Anxiety, Distraction, and Missing Deadlines – but YES the comic is FINALLY available!

Yes, I’m finally making a page for my upcoming Tarot deck – and I’ve named it! “Millennial Mystic” started out as a joke name for this Tarot deck, a comment on how I was embracing millennial styles and attitudes for the illustrations. I was also tuning into the magic and mysticism of millennial spirituality. But… Continue reading Announcing the Millennial Mystic Tarot!
Hey y’all! Big news… I am currently working on my first original Tarot deck! Yep, I’m finally doing a proper full Tarot deck.

Hey y’all! Here’s the first thing I’ve made for the Tarot For Recovery series. It’s just a 12 card spread to tell you a bit about how you’re doing in your recovery! As always, you can use a virtual tarot deck website or app if you don’t have cards of your own.
Of course, this is all assuming you know the meanings of various Tarot cards, and that you’re familiar with the tradition. If you’re new, I highly recommend learntarot.com and biddytarot.com, or Kelly-Ann Maddox, Owlmoon513, and The Truth in Story on YouTube. All are great resources for learning the Tarot.
Tarot For Recovery is an upcoming Tarot course/resource/website that focuses on using Tarot and oracle cards to promote recovery from mental illness, trauma, addiction, codependency, or really anything else you want to “recover” from. All are welcome in TfR.
