Gain insight and guidance with the ancient wisdom of the tarot cards
The origins of the tarot cards are as mysterious as the cards themselves. When they were first used and for what purpose remains vague and elusive. It is thought that they had their origins in India, Egypt or China, but nobody really knows for sure. The first factual evidence of the tarot cards are found in the second half of the fifteenth century in Italy. But even the existence of these 78 beautifully painted cards does not really tell us anything with any certainty. We may well ask – what is this fascination that still holds us today? The cards evoke memories and half-known associations with legend and with myth. They also imply some kind of story or secret which cannot be totally explained.
In my own experience, the tarot is another way of gaining valuable insight into our journey through life. The cards seem to provide a bridge between the conscious and the unconscious and they connect us to our potential, our strengths and our weaknesses.
The tarot is a book of knowledge and wisdom portrayed in symbols and pictures. When you chose a card it somehow reflects the inner image of yourself and an outer experience that has relevance in your life at the time. There is nothing sinister or frightening within the tarot deck. The cards reflect the various stages that we must go through during our life time – birth, childhood, love, marriage, death and grief and essential transformation. The ultimate message of the cards is that we need to blend and unite every aspect of our personality, both the positive and the not so positive. Working with the mystic symbolism of the tarot cards helps us to become more self-aware and enables us to make informed choices within our life.
I have been working with the tarot cards for over 25 years and they never cease to amaze me with their accuracy. They always reflect where the person is at a particular moment on their life’s journey. My preferred cards are the Mythic Tarot deck, these cards combine astrology and mythology and portray archetypal patterns in human life through pictures and stories.

These classes or workshops can be held on a one-to-one basis or in a small group. Group tarot reading sessions are also available, please ask about availability and rates.
Personal Tarot readings are usually half an hour or a full hour, they can be in person or over Skype or WhatsApp.
Your tarot reading gives an overview of the upcoming months, or focuses on a single question. The full hour goes into greater depth, for either a general exploration or to examine a particular matter in more detail.
