Hi there, curious querent! I've been reading Tarot and teaching workshops for nearly 30 years. Through its visual archetypes and long-steeped history of storytelling, the Tarot provides an incredible window into our minds, emotions, and spirits. It helps us tap into the mysterious undercurrent flowing through our everyday, earthly lives. In person, on the phone, or via email, I offer solo readings, group events such as "Tea & Tarot" salons, gift certificates, classes, one-on-one Tarot coaching, seminars, and workshops. Tarot readings & gift certs available at Ye Olde Tarot Shoppe. All other inquiries: email tiffany at plazm dot com.
What to Expect
In your reading, we will let the cards lead us to new discoveries about ourselves, our place in the universe, and how we might best live this life. The process can be playful, fun, and inspiring; it can bring up dark truths and difficult issues. Together, we will explore with compassion, humor, and the courage of our own honesty.
All querents—a.k.a. clients—are asked to approach each reading with a curious mind, open heart, and willingness to delve deep. We may use elements of astrology, numerology, runes, and other divination techniques, along with breathing and energy exercises.
And does Tarot work if you're not, like, woo-woo at heart? Often, the answer is yes. One doesn't have to 'believe in' Tarot as a fortunetelling device to gain insight from its vast utility as a psychological and emotional tool. Step right up, give it a try, see what you think.
T has been reading Tarot and teaching workshops for nearly 30 years. She has created several oracle-art decks, including the Burning Tarot and the Richard Foreman Oracle. Her articles on Tarot, astrology, and oracles have appeared in Stim, Digital Living, Fresh Air, and Rob Brezsny's Free Will Astrology, among others. Integrating Tarot with her art and performance practice, she has made Tarot-related works at the Burning Man festival, Performance Works Northwest, The Manor of Art, and Reading Frenzy. She also used to write horoscopes for a teen style magazine, but will refrain from giving you fashion tips during your reading.
More About T's Tarot Journey
T began reading Tarot seriously in 1991, and shortly thereafter began to write about Tarot, online oracles, and astrology for various publications. Around the same time, she performed in Guilio Camillio's Cabbalistic Theatre, worked at a shop selling Tarot decks, and was introduced to Crash Worship. Her longtime interest in the occult and ritual practices coalesced with her life as a performance, theatre, and music artist. Later, she worked freelance for a company making one of the earliest Tarot reading CD-ROMs, a project that later morphed into Tarot.com.
In 2003, T started the Burning Tarot, using photography shot at the Burning Man festival to create unique Tarot decks, and then give marathon readings and workshops on the Playa. Photographer Steven Fritz became an essential collaborator in the project, which ground to a halt after Steve's death in a freak car accident in 2014. The following year, his spirit appeared to T in a waking dream and encouraged her to write a Burning Tarot book rather than focusing on taking the project back to the Playa. She is presently writing that book.
T melded Tarot and performance at the Manor of Art group show in Portland, creating a womb of a room draped in red fabrics; she and her red costume were then "sewn" into the installation's center. From there she conducted Tarot readings for art patrons, pinning the cards onto her fabrics with clothespins. In addition to several Burning Tarot related gallery installations and decks, she created the Richard Foreman Oracle for Performance Works NW, something called the Pancake Oracle also for Performance Works NW, and a Game of Thrones fan deck for a show at Reading Frenzy.
