Tarot As a Reset Button

“What do you see coming up for me this year?”

It’s one of the most common questions I hear when people sit down for a tarot reading with me.

But it’s important to remember that tarot isn’t always about knowing the future – instead, it can be about healing the present. 

It’s not always easy to be yourself in this world.

In fact, it can feel pretty scary to share your feelings. Or to express a part of yourself that you’ve been told is wrong because it doesn’t fit into society’s preconceived notions of how you are “supposed” to think, act, look, or speak.

Before I landed on my tarot journey, I wanted to be a writer. But when I was looking into college courses, I also considered a social work program.
