Heroic Tarot just received a new 5 Star Review this week and I wanted to share it with you. It’s an honest and personal testimonial, containing a lot of details about my process:

Cheer in the New Year!

New Years in Victor

“Sit in your point of attraction and watch things move around as they come to you.” ~Abraham-Hicks
Blessings are in abundance all around us and it can be a great source of joy to simply relax and count the ones we cannot ignore. Therefore, I am celebrating the sixth (!) anniversary of Heroic Tarot by sharing four of the lovely reviews and letters I received the last week of 2014! Like many gifts, they are a reflection of the sender as much as they are of the recipient. Thank you to everyone who took the time to write (I have a special New Year’s wish for everyone in this post as well). This short and sweet note came from a person who had never received a Tarot reading before:

Clarity, Validation & Awareness

Voyager Tarot
A Heroic Tarot client treated her friend to a reading this past weekend. This is what she had to say about their experience::

It was just great meeting you! My friend couldn’t stop talking about her reading which was spot on! I totally liked your style and interpretation of the cards and I think that my friend’s reading helped to give her much clarity, validation and awareness to think outside of her universe a bit….so I thank you for this. Your home was very warm and inviting and please know that we will be back for a visit with you.

Contact me today for a Heroic Tarot reading, for you or one of your loved ones!

Tourist Tarot Tea Party

Having the Empress over for Tea

Recently I was contacted by an out of town traveler who wanted me to come to the Westin St. Francis hotel and read for her, her mother and her daughter. She told me they were visiting from the Midwest and would only be in town for the weekend. I was happy to relate that I had room in my schedule and so we arranged a time.

Once I arrived at Union Square, I was surprised to find out that the readings were the idea of the woman’s sixteen-year-old daughter. This young woman had found herself interested in Tarot, and upon doing some research, had decided that I was her first choice.

It’s Party Time!

Clownin' Around

Clownin’ around at an Alice in Wonderland themed party!

With the holiday season approaching, I have been reflecting on the fun I have bringing Heroic Tarot to house parties and corporate events. This past October I was impressed by the variety of presentation and panache of the homes and businesses to which I was invited. From the gritty streets of SOMA to the prestigious homes of Pacific Heights, the Bay Area has shown me it certainly knows how to party!

One of the October events for which Heroic Tarot provided readings took place in SOMA at a Halloween party for a tech startup. The party began after the workday ended and all of the employees were dressed up in fantastic costumes. I took it as a very good omen that my first client for the evening was a man dressed as Captain Jean Luc-Picard from Star Trek: The Next Generation. Readings took place in an all glass meeting room and two or three of the employees kept track of the sign up sheet for me, ushering in the appropriate person one after the other. Before their readings, many of my clients expressed that they had never had an experience with Tarot before, and afterward told me that they enjoyed the new perspective the reading gave them. I have found that Tarot and tech mixes quite well as both subjects are systems of information that require some degree of analysis. It is not surprising to me that San Francisco holds space for both magic and science!

The Voyage of Discovery

Voyager Tarot

“The only real voyage consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes; in seeing the universe through the eyes of another, one hundred others–in seeing the hundred universes that each of them sees.” ~Marcel Proust

About five years ago, my friend Sheila Zuni came to see me and asked if I was open to using new Tarot decks. At that time I had won numerous awards for my X-Men Tarot system and it was (and is) a common misconception that that was all I used. Sheila asked me this question while protectively holding something to her heart. I smiled and explained that yes, I used many decks in my Tarot practice and was open to working with more. With a great sigh of relief, my friend gifted me her personal copy of the Voyager Tarot.

Join the Faerie Fellowship!

Indi from the Faeries Oracle by Brian Froud

“Nothing can be truer than fairy wisdom.  It is as true as sunbeams.” ~Douglas Jerrold

This month Heroic Tarot celebrates the wisdom of the fae as found in the divination decks of Brian Froud! Famed conceptual designer and costume designer for the films Labyrinth and The Dark Crystal, as well as artist for The Faeries’ Oracle and The Heart of Faerie, writes that “the connection with the faeries is wonderful because it gives us an opportunity to experience the world in an open and connected way.” Froud believes that “there is great wisdom to be gained if we allow them to turn our prejudices and preconceptions upside down.” Heroic Tarot is proud to include them in readings with traditional Tarot cards and the X-Men superhero deck.

Transcend Limitations! Heroic Tarot’s June Schedule

The Devil

“He who is not everyday conquering some fear has not learned the secret of life.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

This month, Heroic Tarot dispels the darkness around the Devil! This Major Arcana card is ruled by Capricorn and represents creating boundaries and limitations in your life. In Seventy-Eight Degrees of Wisdom, Rachel Pollack explains:

The Devil can indicate a narrow materialistic view of life; it can mean any form of misery or depression, especially feeling chained or imprisoned, with the illusion that no alternatives are possible.

Magic by Definition: Resources for Empowerment

hexagram

“If we want to discover our own creativity and ability to change ourselves and the world, it is imperative that we learn from those women and men who practiced such transformative magic before us.” ~Mary K. Greer

Tarot scholar Mary K. Greer is the author of numerous books on divination and the Tarot. She is also an authority on The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and the magical women who were the heart and soul of that Order. Greer presents the intertwined biographies of Maud Gonne, Moina Bergson Mathers, Annie Horniman, and Florence Farr in Women of the Golden Dawn: Rebels and Priestesses. Her book is an inspirational account of these women, who she refers to as “spiritual foremothers of women practicing magic today.” Near the end of her book, Greer presents ” twelve resources these women shared in common in their personal histories of liberation: twelve conditions that name their powers and describe the factors working for them.” Here is her list of what these four mystical pioneers had in common:
