Hi, I’m Tara!
I’m a huge hermit/ nerd (virgo moon) and I love studying the Rider Waite Smith and Marseille tarot systems, as well as numerology and astrology. Lately I’ve been drawn to the reading styles of Alejandro Jodorowsky and Vincent Pitisci and I use some of their teachings in my practice.
I also am passionate about sacred mantras, and the philosophy of the tantrik yoga tradition.
As a Scorpio sun I cried a lot as a child which freaked out my Capricorn parents. Now I’m discovering being empathic is a gift and a doorway to access and digest emotions, something needed on the planet now. I’m humbled to be one of (hopefully) lots of people waking up to this truth.
I currently live in southern Indiana in an old farm house built in the 1930s on 30 acres of healing land with my roommate Alice and her 2 cats where much hiking, meditating, and safely gathering with friends is appreciated during these unprecedented times.
My purest motive is to help activate people’s own intuition so they can stop trying to ‘transcend,’ or fix themselves, and instead safely welcome more of who they are, and commune with the cards and rituals as a way to dance with the unknown instead of fear it.
In the past I’ve been a musician and have recorded sacred chant music. You can check that out here.
