Tarot is for Everyone!

I began reading tarot for myself in 2005, shortly after my Dad died. I suppose I was looking for something ‘else', perhaps something supernatural, some evidence of life after death. In tarot, I didn't find angels, I didn't ‘connect with spirit' and sadly I didn't find a gateway to another world (exciting as that would have been). What I DID find was a human, artistic, slightly mysterious and deeply fascinating tool that helped me get my head around the life that I was actually living - rather than morbidly pondering what would happen to me after I die. I began reading tarot for family and friends at first. I then provided free email readings for the public through the Tarot Association of the British Isles (of which I am an endorsed reader) and later became a tarot columnist for various UK magazines. I realised two things about my relationship with tarot; firstly that I adore providing readings by email the most, and secondly, that I love to write about tarot. I currently write a regular column for the Tarot Association of the British Isles (TABI) blog and I recently released my self-published baby - 'Tarot Makes Music' magazine (check it out in my shop!). When I read, I just love taking the time to stare deep into your cards with no distractions, thinking about the questions you've asked of me, and figuring out how the images selected at random relate to your life. What’s actually going on in tarot? I can’t answer that. It just works, and that’s enough for me. As a fully qualified counsellor and someone with a long history of supporting LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer) people emotionally, I constantly question any assumptions I make about people’s lives during readings - not only around sexuality or gender identity, but around all kinds of issues. I aim to read tarot inclusively, thoughtfully and sensitively for everyone! I also read creatively; your life is unique, and as such I treat each reading like a one-off adventure!
