My first love is Tarot.
My relationship with the cards began at age 14, when I saw a deck behind the counter at my neighborhood book store, and I immediately decided to take it home. I found that I deeply connected with the cards. And eventually, this affair turned into a lifelong love.
I first learned the Tarot on my own, by studying books. Later on, I also learned from fellow readers I'd met in London and New York. And in more recent years, I also studied with a wonderful mentor and teacher named Jacqueline Dubois, who is a witchy lady with a fantastic channel on Youtube. She not only taught me Tarot, but also all sorts of other Mystery School teachings.
I never thought that I'd read professionally- but as my relationship with the cards deepened, that was the direction where I headed! I started out with a little poster sign, sitting in Washington Square Park, offering readings to people. Since then, I've also run a Tarot meetup group in New York, and have read for many public events and venues including Brooklyn Bazaar, Covent Garden Market and Brick Lane Market.
As a professional reader, I'd describe my style as friendly and approachable. I am a good listener and am non-judgemental. I am energetic, yet I can be healing and calming. My aim is to help empower my clients, and to ultimately aid them on their paths. I absolutely love connecting with others, and sharing in contemplation of their personal journeys. I specialise in readings on spiritual and personal development. I love getting esoteric with my clients! And I love exploring with them the question of who we are, and why we are here.
For the past few years, I have deepened my study and passion for not only Tarot, but all sorts of spiritual topics including astrology, numerology, and kabbalah.
I have taken a particular interest in using sound as a healing modality, and I am a certified practitioner, using Tibetan singing bowls.
I also have a keen interest in all sorts of plant-based magic, and have even created a magical Heart Chakra Tea. Check out my store to see my tea and other products!
When I am not delving into the esoteric, you can find me eating at a vegan restaurant, travelling, dancing, or spending time in a garden or park.
What’s in a name?
Why do I go by “The Mer Priestess”?
Mer- of the ocean; of the water
The element water is connected to emotions, intuition, dreams and the subconscious and the divine feminine.
Priestess- a female intermediary between the worldly and divine realms; a conduit of the divine
The High Priestess was always my favourite card in the Tarot.
I love her serene, mysterious and subtle feminine power. It wasn’t until years later when I realized that I connected with her because I AM her! She is a figure that I deeply resonate with.
