I’ve been reading tarot for 20 years. I believe that a tarot deck is a map of our lives in miniature, and that when we do a reading, we marry our lives to the power of story in profound and transformative ways. I also believe that the cards are an extraordinarily powerful tool for unlocking magic in ourselves, even at those moments – and we all have them – when we believe we have none.
I like to read for people who are confronting big questions and big choices. I also enjoy reading for other readers, since many of us find it harder to read for ourselves than for others.
In my readings you can expect real takeaways: actions you can take, insights to bear in mind, and clear signals about what to embrace and what to leave behind. I’m here to read for you in a compassionate, confidential, and judgement-free way; to help you find perspective when events go awry, to find light when all windows are murky. and to find paths when the way ahead seems impassable.
As a reader, I draw from many schools of interpretation. Although my foundations are in straight pictorial interpretation, I also make use of astrology, Kabbalah, “open” reading, and a number of other techniques developed in the tarot classes I teach. I read both for insight and prediction, with a strong emphasis on looking for ways to change any path that has become unproductive or disempowering.
When you schedule your reading, it is helpful to have a question or area of concern you’d like to know more about. Readings are a collaborative process; a conversation in which insight and interpretation arise out of a shared spirit of inquiry. I’m not a clairvoyant, channel, or medium. But after all these years I know I can trust the cards to speak to most life situations with uncanny clarity – that’s just tarot.
I use many different tarot decks. If you have a favorite, let me know what it is and if I have it in my collection, I’ll use it for you. My personal list of current favorites: Rider Waite Smith (Pamela Colman Smith & Arthur Edward Waite), Uusi Pagan Otherworlds (Linnea Gits and Peter Dunham), Brady Tarot (by Emi Brady), Tarot de Marseille (various editions), Zillich Tarot (by Christine Zillich), Thoth (by Aleister Crowley & Lady Frieda Harris), Tabula Mundi (by M. M. Meleen)
I also read tarot in-person on Thursdays (1pm-6pm) and 3rd Saturdays (12pm-6pm) at Inspirit Crystals in Northampton. More info about that here.
