Tarot, Cartomancy, and Bibliomancy

I am available for more standard tarot, cartomancy, and bibliomancy readings in person (in NYC) or via skype.

Tarot: Tarot is good for getting a general temperature and for those big love, career, life-path questions. I like to use a variety of spreads, from a 10 (+1) Celtic cross, to a 7-card planetary spread, to a 6-card past, present future spread.

Cartomancy: Tarot cards used to be just another kind of playing cards. But in my experience, readings using contemporary playing card tend to be more to-the-point and grounded in day-to-day worries and concerns than readings with tarot. Where tarot might give you a sense of the cosmic, playing cards can often feel like someone who’s not afraid to be blunt about breaking things off with someone you’ve been seeing for a week and a half. I favor a five-card crossroads spread with these, but like the tarot, playing cards offer a great deal of variety and flexibility.

Bibliomancy: Bibliomancy, or divination via a book, is a great interpretive method. I tend to favor using a stack of wooden bibles, but we can customize the book to the questions you wish to explore. Problems at work? Maybe give Karl Marx: Selected Writings a go. Questions about love? We can consult the forces of the universe via Richard Siken’s Crush.
