When I was a little girl, my mom was reading the Tarot cards for her friend. She had an Aleister Crowley Thoth deck, and I remember how bright and vivid the colours were. They were fascinating and frightening. My mom told me they were special cards that could tell you what is going on in a person’s life.

My father walked by the table while my mom did her reading, and he asked, “are you getting a divorce?”

My mom was still nose-deep in The Book of Thoth trying to figure out what the cards in the spread even meant!

My mom did another reading afterward, and my father walked by again, and said, “it still says you’re getting divorced.”

A few days later, that friend told my mom that she was divorcing her husband.

There is a very romantic notion that Tarot can tell the future, but that’s not entirely accurate. It’s not THE future, but one possible future that could happen, depending on the energy, and the other cards present in the situation.

That’s what I love about Tarot; it’s a medium of discovery, of energy working, of advice from the Universe.

This little piece of the internet is where I will be exploring my personal, spiritual journey with the Tarot. I’m interested in not only building my Tarot foundation, but building a business as well, and I hope you’ll join me on the adventure!

I currently read with the Rider-Waite deck because I feel a particular affinity for it. I’ve been drawn to that deck for a very long time, and whenever I look at other decks they just don’t feel right. I also have a Thoth deck, but I’d like to become more proficient with my Rider-Waite deck before I embark on that exploration!

Speaking of feelings, according to the Meyers-Briggs personality test, I’m an ENFP.

It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for – and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing. It doesn’t interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool – for love – for your dreams – for the adventure of being alive.
