Readers of the Round Table held its second class last night! The meeting began with a short presentation on how to give an interactive and empowering Tarot reading. Highlights of the discussion included the five characteristics required for an effective reading, the importance of empathy in a reader, and the overall benefits of receiving a reading. Students were then asked to shuffle the deck they brought with them and pull three cards while considering this question:

Happy New Moon, everyone! This October, Arcana Academy is proud to announce the kick-off of the weekly Readers of the Round Table class, and the offering of two Tarot workshops. Folks who are new to Tarot or want to expand their understanding of Tarot will want to take the Intro class. Those of you who have taken the Intro class will enjoy the workshop specifically focusing on the Court Cards, those unique personalities of the Minor Arcana. These workshops have been designed so they can be taken alone or together. Each is created to be a unique container to explore, gather and translate timeless spiritual wisdom. There’s a limited number of seats for the standalone workshops and the weekly classes, so make sure you register soon!
Here are the Arcana Academy class offerings for the month of October:
I’m sending you all high vibes from New York City! A dear friend of mine gifted me a trip to the Big Apple for the Star Trek 50th Anniversary Convention and I have truly enjoyed myself. Everyone I met was welcoming and kind. I do hope to return soon!
This week, I celebrate my Solar Return and there’s a lot I want to share with you:
- Online Scheduling: You can now sign up for Heroic Tarot readings, classes & workshops directly from my personal calendar!
I’m thrilled to share a new Five Star Yelp Review for Heroic Tarot:
Amazing reading and 100x better than any reading I’ve received before. Of course it was amazingly accurate but more importantly, it actually helped me as a person instead of just focusing on ruminating thoughts or problems. Storm really, really knows his cards and you can tell he is passionate about readings. More importantly, he is passionate about helping you as an individual. This was better than therapy. It was an amazing and worthwhile experience.

If there’s one thing I love as much as reading Tarot, it’s teaching it! I’m so excited to share with you my newly expanded Arcana Academy, a mystery school in which I share my magical knowledge with you! There are three ways you can get involved!
Arcana Academy officially started a few years ago when a client asked me to teach them how to read the Tarot, resulting in a two-and-half year course of individual study. This led to me working with several students in a one-on-one capacity for different spans of time. I continue to take on students even now. Earlier this year, due to popular interest, I offered introductory Tarot classes to the public. They were a great success, leading me to create three tiers of classes honoring the different levels of interest and commitment people have expressed. There are three ways you can can interact with Arcana Academy:
I was recently inspired to create artwork based on the Two of Cups for a dear friend. I’ve long held an affinity for mermaids and sirens and my friend strongly identifies with the woodland satyr. I wanted to have these magical creatures of the ocean and forest meet one another halfway, toasting their love and affection for one another. I based my
This Beltane, I attended a queer retreat at Groundswell Institute with over one hundred sweet souls. The gathering was transformative on multiple levels and I returned to San Francisco renewed and inspired. As a gesture of gratitude for this empowering experience, I offer this Tarot reading dedicated to the ongoing narrative of the community at large. The reading took place on the New Moon of May 6, 2016, utilizing The Wild Unknown Tarot (Many thanks to Hawk Lightfeather for the suggestion).
