My Blog Plans for 2018

More Tarot Cards!

In 2018, I plan to devote more time to Tarot cards! I am creating my own Tarot deck, which I am super excited about! It will be designed to be very easy to learn. Each card will feature my cartoon art 🙂

Tarot Card Readings

I will also be reading Tarot cards for people on! And offering A LOT of FREE Tarot card readings here and on on Instagram (new_age_ellen) and on Facebook (NewAgeStudiesEllen). I am going to upgrade this blog so I can link to PayPal directly from here….

Certified Angel Tarot Card Reader

Every year, I wonder if I should keep writing this blog or not! I would like to monetize it and offer more things for sale…. I am taking an online Hay House class by Radleigh Valentine and will soon be a certified Angel Tarot Card Reader!


More Videos on YouTube

I always plan to do more videos every year, and then I suck about getting them done ;( And I delete them because I don’t like them! I just deleted all of my old videos on YouTube. I’m going to do reviews of all the Tarot card decks and oracle card decks I own, but I want them all to look cohesive.

The End of Doreen Virtue

I’ve gotten the most hits on my blog from talking about Doreen Virtue and her sudden conversion to born-again Christianity! If you didn’t hear about it, she is now ONLY selling Jesus things, like books with Bible quotes in them. She left her animal rescue ranch in Hawaii (she gave away all of the animals except for her personal pets) and reportedly moved to Washington State, near Seattle. She said she needed to move away from Hawaii because it’s too expensive to live there. She disavowed a lot of her Tarot card and oracle decks and old books, and refuses to make money from them (the residuals she gets every time Hay House sells one). So, her income took a dive. Sadly, it’s THE END of Doreen Virtue in the metaphysical community! If you’ve bought oracle cards or books at a metaphysical store, you know how ubiquitous Doreen’s products are/were.


I hope you enjoy reading my blog in 2018.

xoxoxo, Ellen


2018 Year of the Dog

2018 is the Year of the Dog in Chinese astrology!


Guess who is a dog?

Me! Guess again… President Trump! There is a bit of difference as I am an Earth dog and he is a fire dog, the same as Bill Clinton. Fire dogs are very intelligent, driven to succeed and have fiery personalities. Earth dogs are more calm and grounded, more friendly and chatty. Both are devoted to making the world a better place.

You are a dog if:

1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994 or 2006 is your birth year.

What do dogs symbolize?

Think of a golden retriever! Always want to help. Cheerful and friendly. Enjoy chatting and being social with people. Devoted to family and friends. Carefully observe what’s going on around them. They like lots of praise, petting, adoration and want to be fawned over by the public. Have a strong sense of duty and will protect younger/disabled or poor/disadvantaged people. Serious about achieving goals. Homebodies. Like having a plan and doing the same things over and over out of habit. Usually a faithful friend and lover but gets jealous! Usually a traditional, conservative person who likes God and country. Works in traditional jobs like teacher, police, trade union member, construction worker, nurse, nun or priest. If active in politics or writing, are usually conservative like Republican or Christian Right.

Number nine year in Chinese astrology

As numbers count up to 10, nine is in the homestretch, near the end. People have become wiser. They are less likely to believe lies by politicians, et all. They’re ready to rise up and demand the truth! It’s another year of social activism, like the #metoo movement, which was Time magazine’s cover of the year for 2017.

Nine years are very busy and stressful.

It’s as if you’re trying to get everything done before the end. Can be exhausting and too much for people. Be sure to live a healthy lifestyle – don’t overindulge – so you can deal with all the stress. It feels like you’re pushing the accelerator on a fast car! Lots of things are happening in the world and in your home.

Overall, nine years are forecast to be good years!

You can make money starting a new business, earn more in your current line of work and have better cash flow. More money means an increase in social status. Don’t be slow about making business decisions. In a nine year, it’s go go go. Take action!

In 9 years, honest business practices are rewarded.

Are you doing something good for the world? Working on environmental problems means a gold star for you! Or on social justice problems like income inequality. The government and big business will invest more and more in green energy (wind, solar), recycling programs and cleaner technologies. These are good industries to be in.

Good colors to wear, display, use in business advertising:

Green, symbolizing the Earth and environmental protection
Blue, symbolizing water and keeping oceans and rivers clean
Black, symbolizing the entire Universe which needs to be cared for and protected

Happy 4th! Be Spiritually Free!

I got an emailed newsletter from psychic medium James van Praagh today and he talks about SPIRITUAL FREEDOM. A great topic for 4th of July!

Do you feel free to follow your OWN SPIRITUAL PATH? Or are you chained to the old ways of doing things, like church and The Bible?




You are FREE to create your own spiritual practice.

What do you LIKE doing? Praying or meditating? Yoga or going to church? Reading uplifting books like “Angels in my Hair” by Irish angel lady Lorna Byrne or Marianne Williamson’s take on A Course in Miracles? Or the New Testament in the Bible? Going to a meditation class or just listening to meditative music on iTunes? (I like Larisa Stow with Shakti Tribe.) Going for nature walks and imagining all your stress being recycled into the Earth? Or being active in your community like volunteering for causes?

Be honest and pick what you can really stick with! Plan out a new spiritual practice STARTING TODAY.

Queen of the Fairy Kingdom


I consider Dana (dawn-ya) the Queen of the Fairy Kingdom! She is the Irish queen who created the leprechauns. Like the leprechauns (normal-sized Irishmen made small), she is only 3 feet tall. But she is very powerful! Ask to connect with her during your next meditation 🙂

In other Irish news: Sinn Fein, the political party that wants a united Ireland, won almost half the seats in Parliament! This is a huge victory for them. I personally think we will see a united Ireland in our lifetime ❤

I feel that after Queen Elizabeth dies (she’s been having health issues), a new, more modern time will begin, especially once Prince William takes the throne. Even though they don’t have political power, the royal family is an important symbol of the glory days of the British Empire. Prince William wants to bring the British royal family – kicking and screaming – into modern times, while his dad Prince Charles likely doesn’t. I just saw in a documentary that Prince Charles still has servants ironing his shoelaces for him 😉 Psychics predict the Queen will die soon, Prince Charles will be king for about 5 years, and then Prince William will take over. As a huge Princess Diana fan, I’m excited to see her son(s) take over!
