Tarot

Tarot is a powerful tool for accessing divine guidance. With their archetypal images and symbols, the cards deliver intuitive messages to us so we can learn more about ourselves, our lives, our obstacles, our habitual patterns of thought and action. The cards assist us in making real changes to become more aligned with who we really are. 

"Tarot helps us look within ourselves to understand our emotions, the reasoning behind our words and conduct, and the source of our conflicts."

What is Tarot?

Tarot is a centuries-old system of divination. It is a tool for accessing higher guidance, intuitive knowing, and subconscious information.

How do you use Tarot?

I am not a fortune teller! Questions such as "will I win the lottery today?" or "can I get so-and-so to like me?" are not especially helpful (even if they are entertaining and fun). I see Tarot as a powerful tool for accessing divine guidance. With their archetypal images and symbols, the cards deliver intuitive messages to us so we can learn more about ourselves, our lives, our obstacles, our habitual patterns of thought and action. The cards assist us in making real changes to become more aligned with who we really are. My Tarot philosophy is best explained through the wise words of Tarot master Alejandro Jodorowsky:

"When we eliminate the illusion of 'reading the future,' the Tarot becomes a psychological tool and a tool for self-knowledge. By honestly confronting the characteristics of our personalities that have gone off course -- including habits, identifications, manias, vices, personal delusions, crazy ideas, depressive feelings, emotional immaturity, and needs imposed by the family, society, or culture -- we can attain knowledge of our real essence, in other words, what is innate in us and not acquired. The individual can stop being what others want so that he can become who he truly is." (Slightly adapted from The Way of the Tarot: The Spiritual Teacher in the Cards.)

What can I expect from a Tarot reading with you?

My Tarot readings are collaborative. I know the cards, but you know your life story, so we will create meaning together throughout the reading. The more you can share about your life -- and the more specific questions we can formulate -- the clearer, more impactful, and more precise the reading will be.

Please be aware that I don't believe in fortune telling and I don't answer predictive questions (such as, "When will I get married?"). I also don't work with clients who are unwilling to share a bit about their life story and where they currently are, since this information is crucial for us to formulate your questions, create a customized spread, and have a reading experience that is helpful and illuminating for you. If I don't know where you are or what you're trying to achieve, I can't give you specific answers through the cards.

What can I ask?

I will help you phrase your questions in the most helpful and self-directed way possible. I encourage my clients to focus on the self and how to gain greater self-awareness and peace for themselves. Asking about others is intrusive and unethical. Rather than asking, "is so-and-so mad at me?" we can ask, "what can I do to improve my relationship with so-and-so at this time?"

What kinds of messages will I receive?

Using the cards ethically (by focusing on the self and asking responsible questions) always delivers messages that are meant for your highest good and healing. These messages are sometimes uncomfortable if we don't want to hear them (for instance, if the time has come to move out of an unhealthy relationship). Come to your reading with an open heart and mind, and with the courage to listen to your higher guidance.

I want to work with the Tarot myself. Can you help?

Yes! In addition to readings, I offer a variety of Tarot mentoring packages (payment plans are available if needed). We can work together to help you connect to your cards, master the art of reading intuitively, learn how to tell a story out of a spread, and address any specific challenges you might be facing. Depending on your needs, we can also work on special topics such as mastering the court cards, Tarot numerology, self-empowerment through the Tarot, and how to use the deck to heal yourself. To inquire about mentoring, please contact me directly.
