Speaking from my own experience as a reader for others and myself......
Tarot enlightens you, empowers you and helps you to get a 'good handle' on your particular life situation or issue,
Tarot suggests solutions to your problems, clarifies confusing circumstances or people and makes you aware of hidden influences playing out in your life.
Tarot can give you peace-of-mind by simply shedding light on the unknown or
the unrecognised; be these from the past, present or possible future.
Tarot can get you 'out-of-a-rut' by offering a different or new, perspective or direction.
My readings can provide you with fresh and useful insights, options, ideas
and the information you may need to make better choices and decisions
for yourself and future....
All my best,
Hello and Welcome,
I guess you are on this page because you'd like to know how tarot can help you which is best communicated by describing some of my own experiences of tarot!
About 40 years ago I discovered 'card-reading' using a standard deck of playing cards. 'Reading the cards' I found, offered interesting 'answers' to my questions and provided me with insights into my problems. In the 1980's I picked up a deck of BP Grimaud's 1969 The Tarot of Marseilles and found a whole new way to interpret everyday events; and understand myself. Almost a decade later, Pamela-Coleman-Smith’s artistic interpretation of The Rider Deck (US Games) entered my life; I was completely gob-smacked by the extraordinary illustrations on all 78 cards and how much more insight and guidance they gave. As my knowledge of the tarot increased so did my readings for others. Over the past 11, or so, years I worked as a Reiki/healer, spiritual counsellor and professional tarot reader; now offering tarot reading in St Morris, for individuals and couples.
"It's not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters." Epictetus.
One of the great gifts that tarot gives the reader is the ability to recognise (seeing, hearing, sensing and understanding) 'your own truth'. One of the great benefits that tarot brings with each and every reading is clarity; you get a better 'view' of the elements and influences at play (or work) in your life. When chaos strikes (and it strikes all of us) worry, pain, grief and a loss of 'a-sense-of-self'(i.e. common-sense) can cloud the situation. A bit like running through a maze or a dark forest, if you don’t know, or can't see, where it is you are going eventually you are going hurt yourself, or someone else. Ever heard of the saying: "can't see the forest for the trees?" Reading - interpreting - tarot offers guidance for even the most confusing life situations. Tarot works like a compass; helping you to recognise that there are practical ways through, over or around the obstacle.
Another great thing I found about reading tarot is that you never stop learning and expanding! Tarot reading develops your 6th sense: that bundle of senses we identify as our instincts, intuition and inner-guidance. We look at a spread of cards and think: "yep!...I knew that!"; working with the tarot, we learn to trust our own inner-voice. We recognise our inner-guidance is a fundamental part of us; the thing that sustains us through the most unpleasant times while providing a constant source of inspiration and new ideas all the time!
My career as an TafeSA/Uni/Community educator/instructor spanned 2 decades and now I enjoy designing and delivering unique and interactive tarot workshops. I will be taking pre-bookings for Tarot Classes in 2018. As with the 2016 and 2017 Beginners and Refreshers Tarot Series, these workshops are aimed at small-medium sized groups. For workshop enquiries and bookings please contact me and/or for updates; or check my tarot blog for updates.
I am a Professional Member of the Tarot Guild since 2011; having been an Interest Member since 2008. From 2011 to 2014, I was the Guild's Adelaide Monthly Meet-up Coordinator and wrote a regular tarot column - Life in Reversals - for The Magician Magazine; then was the Editor of The Magician Magazine, from 2014 - 2016. For the 2013 and 2015 International Tarot Conferences held in Melbourne, I presented two original tarot workshops - Tarot-Chakra Readings for Well-being - & - Defining Your Life's Purpose with Tarot - respectively. In 2016 I was TGA Vice-President and the Guild's Professional Member Transition Coordinator.
Thank you for visiting.
All my very best to you.
