The tarot can be thought to represent the totality of the symbolic world, a (nearly) complete set of narrative forms and characters. Let’s turn it into a game of archetypes and symbols, a useful tool – a kind of machine – for generating endless artistic inspiration.
The Tarot for Writing Project seeks to uncover the tarot’s characters and plots using children’s narratives, myth, and some écriture féminine.
*At the moment, this is a living document. Not all cards have been added as of yet. But soon, my loves, soon.

Book a Tarot Reading
I read ONLY for creative writing projects.
A tarot reading can be the perfect antidote to the dreaded writer’s block. Might just be the thing to get your creative juices flowing.
Three card reading for your project :: Past, present, future. Beginning, middle, end. And not necessarily in that order, irl or video :: $30.
Full spread for your project :: For someone really stuck. I work exclusively in the Rider-Waite-Smith deck, but I do have others that we can incorporate :: some dapper animals, cubist Greek mythology, the OG Marseille deck, the Spoila deck, and the Wild Unknown. This is an hour long conference, irl or video :: $50.
I do NOT offer personal readings. But please allow me to recommend some lovely witches who do ::
