About

I'm Sarah, a mother of two, maker and artist. I'm training to become a Reiki and Seichem Practitioner after a number of years as a craft blogger and freelance knitting designer. My interest in cardslinging began in early 2017 when I got a copy of Wisdom of the Oracle by Colette Baron-Reid and The Wild Unknown Tarot by Kim Krans.

I considered the cards to be a useful personal development tool. I theorised that any of the cards could apply to anyone at any time, but found that the introspection and subjective interpretation they triggered proved timely and illuminating. I started drawing a random card (or cards) as part of my daily journaling and this helped me to look at things in a different way, often resulting in insight I didn't already have. The more I used them the more I was able to tap into my inherent intuitive knowledge and wisdom, and this opened my mind up to new ways of thinking as well as giving me a great deal of support in my own life.

For this reason, my focus when reading for others or writing new Tarot spreads, is based around personal development rather than 'fortune-telling'. I love helping people to experience breakthroughs in their own understanding.

I don't believe Tarot or oracle cards are magical or that any 'special powers' are needed to read them. Anyone can do it with practice. You simply need a willingness to study, to inquire, and to listen to your intuition - this is the thing that helps link your conscious thinking with your unconscious mind - it's the niggle that tells you whether or not you're on the right track. Essentially the cards are a way of shining a light onto the parts of us that we might not usually think to look for, similar to hypnotherapy.

On this blog you'll find a mixture of content including new spreads I've written myself, resources I've found helpful, honest product reviews, and anything else that wants to be written when my fingers are hovering over the keyboard. Sometimes it surprises me too!
