Essays by Christiana
I have been a professional Tarot reader since 1993. My studies began many years prior to that. I was born into a family that was both spiritual and religious. The women on my Mother’s side all seem to be psychically gifted, although I am the only one who has developed their skills and become a professional psychic.
Over the course of my career, I have had practices in a few locations, always with the goal of finally being able to live in a place where the sun shines year round. I feel lucky to have always lived in beautiful places with beautiful people, but I am drawn to the sun, sand and palm trees of South Florida as my spiritual home.
Reading for people, whether it is for entertainment at a corporate function, or an enlightening one-on-one session in my office, is one of my greatest joys. Studying and teach Tarot is another.
Part of my life’s work has been to make the Tarot more accessible, and more acceptable. I have performed Tarot readings on nightclub stages, in church basements, on radio and television, at casinos, military bases, wineries, book stores, restaurants, hair salons, festivals, conventions and charity events.
I am constantly amazed by the Tarot’s ability to pinpoint issues, offer solutions, and create options. I am also in awe of the Tarot’s ability to create community and lasting friendships. To that end I lead Tarot Circle, and work to participate with the international Tarot community on-line, and at Tarot conferences and symposia.
My career as a professional Tarot reader has allowed me to further develop my psychic gifts, and to develop myself as a radio and television personality, a writer, a healer, a teacher and a community leader.
