Fashion bitch turned wellness witch, Cardsy B, shares her irresistibly witty and raw account of seemingly having, then losing, it all to redirect inward to find healing and purpose in unlocking her intuition.
Before becoming Cardsy B, Rebecca Szymczak was a rebellious outcast from rural Pennsylvania, determined to live the quintessential Manhattan life, landing high-level fashion jobs, celebrity friends, and even her own lingerie line along the way. But by age thirty-one, an astrological transit-known as Saturn's Return-gate-crashed her life, stripping away her self-identity and exposing a battle with depression, anxiety, and substance abuse, just beneath the glossy surface.
As she began to rebuild her life, Cardsy revisited her childhood hobby of pulling tarot cards. In doing so, she reconnected with her intuition in powerful and often unexpected ways.
The Saturn Diaries is the compelling record of that journey, involving everything, from a homemade Oprah-ator phone created to dial the universe to a solo trek through the Costa Rican Jungle to participate in an Ayahuasca ceremony.
Part memoir and part spellbook, each chapter features a spell, elixir, or ritual. The Saturn Diaries - intensely moving and often hilarious - chronicles discovery and remembrance. It reveals the magic that occurs when you acknowledge the seeker within and begin listening to your own inner guidance system.

When Sara Rahimi was a teenager living in Iran’s capital, she dreamed of a life where she could do or be whatever she wanted to. She longed to become like Oprah and Ellen: free, powerful, and inspiring. Instead, she lived in an atmosphere characterized by fear and terror – one where Morality Police monitored her every move, and gendered cultural norms determined her life’s path. She once begged a male friend to jump out of her family’s second story window in order to avoid harsh punishment from the police for an unauthorized co-ed after-school hang-out.
Flash forward to today, and Sara lives in a new country and finds herself voluntarily jumping-- out of a plane rather than a building. From skydiving to a career change, Sara has finally become everything she’s ever dreamed of in her new homeland in Canada. Still, Sara can’t shake the feeling that she does not fully belong in her new world and that something is missing.
In Little Sara of Tehran, she learns to overcome her past, and move forward by trusting her instincts, following her gut, and transforming her deepest grief into her life’s greatest purpose.

Twenty years ago, when the devastating surge of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic shook the world with deadly blows, everything changed for humanity and its relationship with technology. It's the year 2040. The post-pandemic world is surprisingly a better world that has curiously united humanity in the spirit of sustainable living and peace. Now, when humans depend even more on technology to live beyond survival, thirteen-year-old, atypical, Deepa finds solace in the comfortable memory foam seats of an old Tesla DVT Model III smart car—a driverless family car her family simply likes to call Car.
Deepa likes to live in her own tiny world of electronics in a Tiny Town with her mother Su, father Elu, Cat the cat, and of course, Car. When things get mundane in arguably the most mundane smart town on the planet, Car becomes the family’s confidante who absorbs all their emotions but never reflects his feelings; consoles their heartbreaks in silence but never complains about his needs. Car tries his best to keep the family safe throughout this seven-day journey to self-discovery, trust, and hope. But what should he do if his only friend Deepa wants him to fly with her to Mars, to save him from an impending doom?
How about Car’s feelings? How about his constantly exhausted battery? And how about his Free Speech? After all, Car isn’t just a car!

Alcohol can be cunning and powerful… but it doesn’t have to be baffling. Rethinking Drinking reveals the importance of improved alcohol awareness amongst parents, families, friends, and our community.

Now sober, he acutely understands the social lubrication alcohol provides. Passionate about architecture and how things are built, he is as intrigued by architecture as he is human relationships. When not on stage, Craig can be found learning everything he possibly can in classes and workshops that inspire him, going to movies with his son, or eating a whole row of Oreos!
