Thank you so much for the reading yesterday Leona. I’m still processing it all tbh. Was so compassionately honest and resonant. Having my truths validated by The All High, I feel much more congruent for real. Your tarot reading really emboldened me babe – thank you so much!! 💓💓💓

What kind of tarot reader are you?
I am an intuitive and empathic tarot practitioner with a holistic approach. This means I integrate astrology, numerology, Black radical pedagogy, and other forms of alternative knowledge into my spiritual practice.
By profession I’m a cultural sociologist and passionate educator, and this informs my approach to the spiritual arts. I believe in the integration of the mind and the heart; that the intellectual has a place in the spiritual, and this can be the most beautiful and empowering aspect of the esoteric.
How do I book a tarot reading with you?
To book a reading you can email me at email@example.com, or contact me via my Facebook page, and from there we can agree an appointment. I am currently based in Leeds for in-person readings, and I offer Facetime/Skype remote readings too. I accept payment via paypal, and this must be received at least 24 hours prior to your appointment.
It’s important to note that whilst Tarot is certainly a healing and transformational tool, it cannot and should not replace medical health advice from a trained professional. You should never forgo seeing a doctor if you have any concerns about your physical health. Continue Reading
I’ve been quite hesitant about saying publicly that I don’t find mercury retrogrades to be the nightmares they are often described as. I feared that I’d be speaking from my ego, and therefore bound to attract that exact experience as a lesson. But whatever, it’s my truth. I’m learning not to suppress my thoughts and my voice (the lesson of my natal Chiron in Gemini).
People tend to note how precise I am in my communication. In fact, when I’ve argued with lovers, they’ve told me “You meant to say that. You choose your words very carefully”. It’s true. I’m Virgo sun and moon, ruled by Mercury; I’m very discriminating in my communication. But behind that veil, there was the most efficient repression of all thoughts and feelings I didn’t think were ‘good’. I’ve had this down to a Tee, and it’s been a problem.
It created a very cool and restricted expression of myself. I do not lose control. Since I am not God this makes life stressful, not to mention boring AF. It affects my sexual energy too. I’m skilful for sure (Virgo pursuit of perfection), but I find it hard to uncap and freely express my deep running passion. It takes time to get me to take off my cool.
More recently however, I’ve given my shadow side creative freedom. Think ‘The Lobster’, absurdist dystopian black comedy film. It happens to be one of my favourites, and I’m just as wry and sardonic inwardly. It’s delicious. I discovered my anger in the dim light of my private mind, as well as a propensity to be disinterested in a whole lot of shit I’m supposed to care about. Like Shea Moisture. LMAO. Nope. That debacle is on the waiting list of my waiting list.
My subconscious thoughts have been much easier to access during this mercury retrograde transit, which turns all our communicative focus inward. My intuition has been turned all the way up, and I have been accessing my unconscious self in the abstraction of my dream state, thanks to my significant Neptune aspects. This is why Mercury retrogrades are great. Continue Reading
When we say male/female or man/woman there are ideas and behaviours that we associate with those words, and those ideas don’t disappear in spiritual, religious or esoteric communities. The framework of woman-man is meaningful in our culture and I make no pretence about doing away with those concepts; but rather I seek to deepen our… Continue Reading
