I live in a cottage on a one lane road in the woods, surrounded by nature.

I am a Professional Astrologer and a Professional Tarot Card reader, who is clairsentient. I sometimes see psychic visions, but mostly "feel" what's going on with my clients. My site jeanbakula.wordpress.com is a "landing site" if you want a reading. It explains what I offer, and what you need to do, if you want an Astrological Natal Chart Cast, or a Tarot Reading.

Computer generated sites have poor interpretations, and even wrong planets in the houses at times. I have begun using software to "cast the chart", in order to avoid the math, but all astrology interpretations are my own.

My interest in Astrology began when I was ten years old, and I began formal classes when I was twenty. I have read Tarot and practiced Astrology out of two local businesses near my home, The Healing Center and Soul Journey. I love hanging out with like minded and gifted people at such places, and metaphysical fairs. I also take courses in Intuition and Clairvoyance, and have a continuing Meditation practice, having tried many kinds.. I have tried TM, chanted with a Buddhist Monk, and it's all helpful.

I am a Seeker. I like to be learning something new, either on my own, or by taking a class. But I want to pass on what used to be secret, esoteric knowledge to you, so we can all benefit from it. This is one of my life's goals.

Astrology charts and Tarot readings are for entertainment purposes only. I am not a licensed mental health or medical professional, so can't answer health related questions except in a very basic way (though I will suggest you see a doctor if I feel you have a pressing issue which needs attention).

You have the gift of FREE WILL, so if you get a reading you do not like, interpret that as a warning sign, and do your best to either alter your behavior or get yourself out of whatever negative situation you are in!

In Fall 2011, my poetry book Pathways through Spirituality was published. It is an original way to learn to read the Tarot, rather than memorization, I wrote a poem explaining each card's meaning.The book is available on Amazon.com. I will benefit in the form of royalites from the publisher if you order it, and it is available in Kindle form.

I identify myself as a Pagan because I get many of the answer's to life's quesitons from Nature.

I am open to writing about metaphysical topics on other people's blogs for a fee.

      Greetings From Northern New Jersey!

      We finally got our power back after 7 nights. I am grateful my family and home are safe, but it was sure hard living in the darkness, with no heat, lights, hot water, etc. The shore area and NY got most of the attention, but there was a lot of devastation here too. I don't think our town addressed...

      I thought Mrs. Romney was very artificial and stiff. The things she said about all the roles we women play were true, but more for our Mother's generation.

      6 years ago

      I just read a thought provoking hub about how difficult it is to take a life. It's not the usual pro/con abortion or political argument.
