How I Started Reading Tarot Cards

When I was 5, I wanted to be a Gypsy when I grew up. Disappointed when I learned it wasn't an occupation I became a graphic artist, an activist, a mom, children's party artist, home organizer, dog walker, a baker, and a web designer. All through those years I still did the "Gypsy thing" and studied the tarot, meditation, astrology and other mystical arts. 


I would read cards for anyone who would let me. That was always what I was interested in. I had a passion for the tarot. My friend and I would get together for every Autumn Equinox, make a pot of chili and read for each other. On one of these occasions I channeled a message from her great aunt who passed away when she was very young.

The message stunned both of us. It was then I recalled that I had seen spirits in this same way many times before when I was very young but had forgotten those experiences. Encouraged by this recollection I talked to as many people as I could, hung around the NYC metaphysical shops, joined the Metaphysical Club where I worked (believe it or not, I worked at the United Nations where there was a tremendous number of colleagues with similar interests). I submerged myself in the world of metaphysics and spirituality, absorbing as much as I could from anyone who would share their experiences.   

 

One day, just a few years ago, I read for my niece when she was home from college. She told me I should make a website for my readings and just see what happens. Within two weeks I had my first client and have not looked back. I realized that being a Gypsy is indeed and occupation!

 

My readings are based on what I wanted to have received in a reading over the years. What did I need to know about myself, my present condition, that I just wasn't able to see? How could I identify and overcome the issues standing in my way? I didn't want to see the trouble that was coming (back then I knew there was always trouble on the horizon!)  I wanted to know how to change the direction I was heading and make my life better. I wanted to feel better. I wanted to know there was something wonderful on the horizon for me that I could actually attain. This desire lies at the heart of every one of my readings.

 

The desire for spiritual protection, clarity, insight, higher vibrations, joy, truly loving experiences, relief, optimism, confirmation, guidance, support in my own life I sought to connect with my guides and angels. I learned how. It is with this connection that I begin our session. By asking that OUR guides and angels work together to bring you (and me, because I benefit from our reading as well) the information, support and guidance needed.  

 

All of my abilities come into play during our session - empathic, psychic, medium, predictive - they flow simultaneously, and cohesively into the reading.  We learn about ourselves, as we live here  - as a blending of our spirit nature with human nature. Our guides and angels only want for us to be happy and living a truly authentic version of ourselves and therefore, they will never tell you anything that is frightening or provokes worry and anxiety. They will light the way for you to really love yourself and your experience here.  

 

As you read with me, you experience the coming together of all of my abilities and motivations. You receive accurate information as it relates to your questions, insights into your situation, and confirmation of your own intuitions. Plus it's fun!

There isn't one particular way I am limited to receiving. I have channeled spirit, heard clear and distinct voices, received images, strong intuitive messages and precognitive dreams. Being present with the person I am reading for and using my Angel Tarot deck, allows me to receive through any one of these.

 

 I have studied astrology and Tarot for sheer enjoyment.  My love of meditation brought me on a journey where I learned of yoga, was introduced to Reiki, Parmahansa Yogananda, Buddisim, and just a big, beautiful world of metaphysics. While my interest in Tarot reading has far exceeded my interest in anything (except meditation) I continue to be on the journey accompanied by so many other great souls.

I love reading for people. I feel as though I get a glimpse of the truly loving part of human spirit when I read. Always feeling so honored that my client has graciously allowed me to feel their spirit in such a wonderful and personal way I send my deepest heartfelt thanks and offer my continued prayers for everyone.
