Have you ever wondered what was waiting for you in the future? Have you been stuck with a decision and wished the universe could show you some sort of sign? Not everyone would resort to a tarot card reading but don't knock it if you haven't tried it.

Having your fortune read is as old as time. Britannica.com claims that fortune-telling dates back to 4000 BCE.

Predictive methods of fortune-telling include astrology (interpretation of the movements of heavenly bodies as influences on earthly events), numerology, and the utilization of objects such as playing cards, tea leaves, crystal balls, dice, fire, water, and scattered salt. (Britannica.com)

Britannica.com also mentions that tarot decks were invented in Italy in the 1430s. Apparently, it was added as a fifth suit to a regular 4 suited deck of cards.

Metaphysical and Crystal Shops in the Hudson Valley, New York

I haven't ever taken a class in reading tarot cards but I presume you need to have some kind of intuitive ability to read the cards. Of course, if you ask anyone who has an enlightened ability they will tell you that we all possess the ability we just have to hone in on it like anything else you want to learn.

Old Family Cemeteries in Ulster County New York

Old Family Cemeteries in the Hudson Valley

These four old family cemeteries are within a few miles of each other in the Town of Lloyd. If you are familiar with the area you have most likely driven by one. My question is have you ever stopped and taken a moment to think about history? Some of the people in these old family plots lived in the Hudson Valley during the 1700s. One thing I do ask is if you do come across an old cemetery please be respectful. These grounds are someone's final resting place they should be treated that way no matter how you find them. Taking anything other than possibly a stone rubbing is unacceptable.
