Health Update and Recovery Nov / Dec 2023

By Marie Satori

Hi Everyone, It feels like an eternity since I last posted or wrote. I wanted to update you on my journey and reassure you that, YES, I'm still doing readings. I just took a break. Let me fill you in. ...

In November 2022, I underwent ankle reconstruction surgery following a fall that resulted in a fractured ankle and torn tendon. Despite a year filled with physical therapy, countless appointments, enduring pain, and numerous imaging tests, I remain with restricted mobility.

Sticking to a regular schedule to provide sessions was difficult, I often had to reschedule sessions to attend more medical appointments, or was running late from appointments, or need to cancel due to fatigue/pain from recovery; this process often overwhelmed me. The source of this ongoing pain has been identified (the tendon that was reconstructed is rubs up against the bone when I move). I needed time to come to terms with my new limitations, and next steps, while trying to overcome them.

However, during this introspective pause, I discovered a silver lining: I could write. This period of bedrest became a creative pause (I didn't ask for 😊) to write the 'Golden Eclipse: As Above, So Below - A Guide to Astrology for Tarot Readers.' I wrote the book I wish I had when I was learning both tarot & astrology.

The book is available in linen-wrap hard cover and paperback. There's also a limited amount of Golden Eclipse tarot decks for sale. Which make amazing magickal gifts for yourself or your tarot/astrology loving friends.

Right now, the week of Nov 11th, I caught the seasonal cold that's been going around (update week of Dec 2nd, it turned into pneumonia - after a round of antibotics and steroids, I'm finally finally getting better); while I'm taking a bit more time to recovery from everything I wrote above - I'm using this time to update my site, and check through any outstanding obligations.

I will be opening up Whatsapp, Email and limited phone sessions for the holidays; and then transition to having more session available in the new year.
