Astrology & Tarot

❤ Astrology & Tarot are powerful tools for gaining insight into your personality, relationships, life events and changes.

Astrology readings are an in-depth conversation that includes your soul evolution, life direction, and healing path as suggested by your Astrology chart at the time of your birth.

Tarot & Oracle card readings are a quick way to drop in with your higher purpose and present direction.
