Divination using playing cards is recorded as early as 1540. A manuscript from 1750 (Pratesi Cartomancer) documents rudimentary divinatory meanings for the cards of the tarot. In 1765, Giacomo Casanova wrote in his diary that his Russian friend frequently used a deck of cards for divination.

Therapists offering Tarot Readings and what tarot decks they will be using:
Ana will offering readings with the Rider Waite Tarot.
Rider Waite Counselling, self-awareness and empowerment through Tarot. A Tarot reading from an evolutionary perspective will provide guidance through the consultant’s daily questions. It is also a broader approach on how to own and get your life back, get some answers about yourself at the point in life you’re at and really feel empowered!
Tarot has a particular structure of 78 cards that includes 22 Major Arcana (archetypes, ideas) and 56 Minor Arcana (materialization, action). There are thousands of different decks and lots of different ways to read and interpret them.
I usually use the Rider Waite deck or others based on this system. I follow the symbolic/oracular line of work and I don’t use reversals (for me, it’s not necessary…). Sometimes I use two decks in a reading, depending on the question and also according to my inspiration/intuition at the moment.
I’ve been working in the esoteric and healing area for the last 9 years, with the spirit mission of caring, helping and inspiring others. Tarot is my passion and I use it as a tool to self knowledge, healing and empowerment, from an evolutionary point of view. One of my goals while working with Tarot is also to teach and help people understand Tarot in a new perspective, putting aside some old patterns and misconceptions about the Tarot cards. I do that by giving an historical overview on Tarot origins and myths, unfolding the old and dated idea of Tarot as an occult and mystic practice. I do Tarot workshops and seminars.

Connection and dialogue with nature and landscape is central to her work as is the magic of everyday, the creation for meaningful rituals for our lives today and sharing the spirituality and mythology of her homeland with others. A published author and poet, Angharad is also a storyteller who uses story as the starting point for deep inquiry and a source of timeless wisdom and healing.

Zephyr will offering readings with the Shamanic Tarot and with the Transcendental Tarot.
At the beginning of each session, an emotional connection is established with the person involved. Emotions, sensations and thoughts that arise in the moment of reading are treated with care, respect and compassion.
Transcendental Tarot is like a map where each card represents a “city” that is a key to the person’s psyche. Each card represents a group of feelings or emotions that can be transmitted to the reader.
These energies are treated in the “now” and a great change is felt during the reading. Most of the feelings are good, strong and useful. Feelings like vitality, passion, love for life, among others, may rise
It works similarly to the Transcendental Tarot, the difference being the cards used in the reading – the Shaman’s Oracle deck. Intuitive readings done using these cards have a simpler format but with the added magic of the beautiful cave art-like paintings. It is divided into five suits, or Tribes: Spirits, Ancestors, Shamans, Hunters and Dancers.
This reading helps to reach out the deepness of the soul, and helps the ones that are trapped in a veil of illusions and need a way out. It helps you to reconnect to your ancestors in both earth and universe. to the surface as they are needed for the Transcendence of the person.
Zephyr was born in Lisbon in October 1983. He has been in contact with the spiritual and scientific worlds all his life. He always follows the star of compassion as his true guiding light.
In 2008 he was first initiated in Reiki, refining his skills of compassion and gaining a capacity for a deeper connection with the person before him, and so, developing a higher healing potential.
In 2010 he began his work in Family Constellations, participating in 17 constellations in two days on his first experience.
He has been on many shamanic journeys, with the aid of Ayahuasca, Peyote and Temazcal ceremonies.
His experiences with Tantra have taught him how to efficiently transmute energies with his body on a higher level.
In 2011 he started his journey in the world of the Tarot, creating a new system based on all the wisdom earned through his experience, excelling in mapping emotions and feelings that need to be expressed.
The sum of his experiences and personality make him a therapist that treats the person before him with true compassion and respect, aiding them on their way towards their truer self.

Each tarot card reading I do is individual and personal to you. I work with my spirit guides and the THOTH deck to interpret what is happening for you and what your most likely path is ahead.

The Astrology layout offers a general overview for 12 areas of your life including; emotional and mental state, your home, love life, work and career, relationships, travel and study, secret concerns. The Tree of Life layout assists with a specific question to understand; the direction it is taking, what you are and not in control of, opportunity for growth, what has to be changed, what’s underneath it all, the likely outcome, and the next step to be taken.
