Hello all!! As you might guess from my greeting I was brought into tarot and witchcraft in the U.S.'s deep South. More specifically, just outside of Asheville, NC I find a surprising community full of psychics and Pagans more than willing to help me find my own footing over a decade and a half ago. That generosity and exploration eventually brought me halfway across the country to Minneapolis, MN where I currently (happily) reside.
Part of the reason I left the Bible Belt was because I knew that the South wasn't my place, at least not forever. I am proudly radically queer, anti-racist, and feminist as hell. I've got PTSD, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and a host of other chronic illnesses. I needed space, and I needed to go somewhere where I could heal (physically and emotionally).
Through my evolution over the last decade, three things have remained steadfast as ever:
- My commitment and love of tarot reading.
- My desire for a spiritual and emotional path that is strong, healthy, and vibrant (and my willingness to Do. The. Work. to get there).
- My unabashed mission to help YOU heal and fall in love with yourself (and tarot).
I take that mission incredibly seriously, and there's a couple of ways I go about it. The first is with radically honest tarot readings that never stray from my compassionate and empathetic roots but will NOT mince words. I read a couple days a week at a metaphysical shop, have e-mail readings in my online store, and am happy to take Twin Cities residents (or visitors!) in my home studio or to a nearby coffee shop.
The second way I show my commitment to tarot, spirituality, and YOU is with tarot workshops and one-on-one lessons. Professional Tarot readers need to be able to make a living, but that means pricing is sometimes inaccessible to those who need guidance the most. My solution is to not only run sales and occasionally cut deals, but to spend a fair amount of my energy in this career teaching you to use the cards to guide yourself. Your intuition isn't wrong--it just needs fine tuned, and a tarot class or lesson with me could be just the thing to do it.
Finally in my commitment to my mission, I'm a tarot writer. I run a great series on Queering the Tarot at everyone's favorite one-stop tarot shop, Little Red Tarot and THAT little series that could is getting a nice shiny refinish and coming out as a book through Red Wheel/Weiser publishing in May 2019. I also blog on here occasionally. I routinely post workbooks and other tarot products for you to snatch up and use for learning and growth. I also write at Take Your Pills every month and whatever other freelance outlets will have me.
Everything I do is infused with a lot of love and plenty of magick. That is especially true in my tarot life, but I also run a theatre company that aspires to inspire. If you want to see a more candid version of me, I do almost-daily FREE promotional readings at Instagram which I also use for personal use. I tweet sometimes, and I have a Facebook page. Come join me in fun and conversation online and reach out when you feel like it's time to get a reading or take a class.
In the meantime, Blessed be, y'all!
