Using Tarot to Connect to Your Heart
Are you tarot curious? Tarot savvy? Eager to recommit or reconnect to a tarot journey you started before? Whether you are new to the tarot or you turn to a variety of decks for inspiration, encouragement, and alignment, you may wish to schedule a reading so that you benefit from the joy of having another set of experienced tarot eyes looking into the tarot mirror with you.
My current offering provides you an hour long tarot reading and a signed copy of my Heart’s Compass Tarot: Discover Tarot Journaling and Create Your Own Cards workbook. I read from the heart and in the service of helping you access solutions in the spirit of growth, compassion, and joy. We meet over zoom and I will help you clarify your question before pulling cards from the tarot deck.
Tarot gives us a gentle way to look into the mirror of our lives and a gentle way to be reminded of who we are and why we came into this life, who we came here to be, and who we came here to love. Often we overlook that primary but vital-to-tend relationship: the one we have with ourselves. Give yourself the gift of some attention and love, and learn how to use the deck in an ongoing, introspective way through the tarot journaling and art exercises in the workbook. I would love to work with you.
Cost: for this offering is $99 total.

Testimonials from Consults:
I had the great pleasure of receiving a tarot reading from Tania when in the midst of creating a portfolio of imagery entitled ‘Heroines.’ Tania’s attention to the reading was clear and perceptive. Her extensive follow-up notes concerning the reading were quite helpful and gave me additional confidence to proceed with the project. I ended up receiving a Julia Margaret Cameron award for the portfolio, and it was exhibited at the 2016 Foto Biennale in Berlin. I am quite certain that my interaction with Tania through the tarot reading that summer was a factor in the success I attained that year. I would definitely work with her again in the future.

I had a consultation with Tania at a time when I felt disorientated on my general path in life as a poet; she was a valuable help to me in clarifying what I was searching for and defining my obstacles. Also her writing prompts gave me inspiration to kick-start and structure a budding poetic project that I am still working on. I loved the chance to choose between several gorgeous decks of cards and being able to pick the one that felt just right to me at the moment. Tania is insightful and warm and made me feel comfortable in sharing and elaborating personal thoughts. I truly enjoyed the session and wouldn’t hesitate to do another one or to recommend her to anyone looking for an alternative kind of input to their writing.
