My journey with tarot started with a gift. I was gifted a tarot deck and wasn’t sure what to think of it. What was the deck of cards with beautiful imagery? I wasn’t sure how I felt about the art of divination and knew little of it.
At the time I was studying English at a quaint college tucked in the southeast corner of Nebraska. Since I didn’t know how to use a tarot deck, I used the cards as writing prompts. Working with the deck in this way opened my eyes to the power contained in that deck of cards.
Symbolism has been a powerful system to me. I wrote dozens of papers on literary works and the symbolism contained in the pages; what those symbols meant for the story and how they relate to the human experience. To see the symbols in the tarot and the link to the work I was studying at the time was mind-blowing. I was reading a lot of Joseph Campbell and studying the Hero’s Journey, what a perfect time to have the tarot fall in my lap. I graduated from college a few months later and needed something to study so all my focus poured into the tarot.
Seven years later and here I am, a professional card reader. I continue to be amazed by the power of using the universal symbols contained in the tarot to relate to individual lives. The way these symbols allow us to take scope of our lives and guide us forward is transformative. I am here to help you see beyond who you think you are, to discover everything that you can be.
