OCEAN GROVE, NJ —Two “energizing” events will be held on Sunday, January 19 at Serenity by the Sea, 53 Main Avenue, where shopping is always an experience for the mind, soul and creative spirit.

Trish Ann Josephs will offer intuitive tarot readings, which can show someone’s path of energy, provide insights for self-discovery and reveal a story to whatever might be relevant at the time.

Josephs, who has been reading cards for more than 35 years, will be available from noon to 4 p.m. A 10-minute reading is $20, 15-minute reading is $30 and 30-minute reading is $60.  Call 973-699-1760 to make an appointment.
