I work with a growing number of decks, adding-to and expanding my collection as guided *.
* I am also open to learning new decks; so if you would like to work with me and have a specific deck in mind, we can discuss this in your first appointment.
Below is my CARD GARDEN, displayed first as thumbnails, then later as larger prints.
As one would water a planter, prune a herb tray and weed a front yard… I tend to mine with flower essences, essential oils, palo santo and crystals. Afterall: the better I treat them the better they treat you.
If you would like to work with a specific deck, let me know at the beginning of the session. Otherwise I will pick intuitively. Likewise, if you request a specific deck and I don’t feel the vibe; with your permission I will suggest an alternative.
Every deck has a different energy, thanks to its creator and designer and the energy and intention behind it. It’s all about how you, I and it resonate. Getting it right is the key to a good reading **.
** If a reading is evasive or cloudy, chances are you have the wrong deck.
SCROLL DOWN for larger images and the energy and focus of each deck ***.
Cards are listed in order of ownership (when I came upon them…) rather than preference. I have my favourites, but they shift – varying with my mood, environment, clients, the time of the month, phase of the moon and season.

LEARN HOW TO READ THE CARDS:
I have been journeying through the tarot personally and with clients for many years but I have never written any of it down. Recently I was asked to write a series of articles based on my reading of some of the cards and (for those who are interested) I have decided to share them here.
MY INTERPRETATION (of some of the cards…)
In addition, after starting a one-month Instagram challenge on Tarot in January, I was guided to continue with the journey for as long as felt right (or until I was instructed otherwise). When it was done, I was to collect each card interpretation and produce a book so that they would be easier to access and study. The book would be a powerful resource and self-help tool for those looking to gain greater self-understanding and inner and outer child healing.
We all have wounds the only difference is whether we choose to commit to the job and the journey of healing what is quintessentially wrong.
What follows is my personal interpretation of the cards. It comes from my head, my heart, my gut, my womb, my higher-self, my ancestors and my guides…
I have combined it with a daily flower essence remedy to further deepen the healing. And – being a firm believer in taking one’s own advice – I took as I wrote. If you choose to undertake this journey, you walk where I have been.
