Calling all Tauruses! A special tarot reading just for you!

Taurus in a nut-shell  If you were born on April 20th to May 20th, that makes you a Taurus.  Congratulations! Taurus is the second sign in the western zodiac, one of three Earth signs, and represented by the headstrong bull. Typically, people born under this sign are dependable, hardworking, and patient when at their best, and materialistic, predictable, and stubborn when at their worst.

Balancing the Deck: The Light and Dark of Tarot

Balancing the Deck: The Light and Dark of Tarot

Tarot Yes or No Spread

Tarot Yes or No Spread Can the tarot answer “yes or no” questions? Short answer: yes. Longer answer? Let me explain. Some readers choose not to indulge in tarot yes or no readings for a few reasons. 1) tarot tends to work best when used as a tool for introspection, meditation, and other self-oriented goals. It is an amazing portal for looking inward into the universe of the subconscious mind.
