WHAT CLIENTS SAY...

"Clarissa is one of the most gifted readers I've ever had the privilege of reading with...

...Her warmth, energy and sense of humor will take you on a journey of knowing yourself in new ways that will help make a better you. Because unlike other readers who are old school and very dogmatic in how they read the Tarot, Clarissa takes her expertise of this very old form of divination and brings it into the modern age with wit, compassion and powerful insight.

About Clarissa

HI THERE!

I have been practicing tarot for 25 plus years.  It’s my belief that we get answers when we need them, from any source that we’re open to. So for me, tarot provides a way of gaining insight and contextualises all the factors surrounding  a question. I've always found it to be a really useful guide, a way of finding a new perspective or clarity about some aspect of my life or circumstances.

I’m a practicing visual artist as well, and so one of the reasons that I found my way to tarot is that it’s largely a visual, pictorial language, infused with layers of symbolism - all creating a  kind of storybook for each spread.

    TAROT began as a playing card game in the 15th century, eventually became used for divination in the late 18th century. The deck is made up of 22 Major Arcana cards, using archetypal figures and ideas representing the major lessons in life. Each of the four suits corresponds to an element, just as in astrology. Through the numbered cards, and the face cards of each suit, these address the everyday situations, people and circumstances in our lives. There are countless spreads that each address a particular theme, topic or query.

A FEW TYPES OF TAROT SPREADS

3spread.jpg

A simple three-card spread such the Yes/No and Why spread; or the Past, Present and Future spread is often used for clarity in decisions.

Tarot spreads can address all topics - love, career, family, travel, any area of your life in which you’re seeking clarity. My expertise is in the nuances of meanings in each card, and how they relate holistically. I’ve done thousands of readings over the years, and have consistently seen perspective and clarity come from readings!

 

When you book a private session, I usually like the Celtic Cross spread, which is a good indicator of all factors influencing your life. We can then fine tune specific questions, such as yes/no/why, or the timing of events, or a look at past influences and how they factor into a current decision. 

 

You’re about to have an adventure! I look forward to working with you!
