closing my practice after 5 years

Hi all, Hope this missive finds you well. After five amazing years of service, I am- mostly- closing down my Brownstargirl Tarot practice for now. My last day will be June 13, 2017. It’s been a hell of a ride. When I started Brownstargirl Tarot in 2012, I had been reading tarot, for myself and…

new practice! new website! new reading length! plus, a bonus meditation on anti-ableist ways of seeing change, death and transformation in the healing justice movement.

Hi all- hope you’re enjoying my new, redesigned tarot website! After taking a summer sabbatical from my tarot practice, giving myself time to rest, recharge, play with my new Wild Unknown deck and learn more about readings,  I’m excited to be back.

this is just a brief note to say: I’m in awe of all my clients and their bravery, their standing at the crossroads, their magical lust for life, their survival. I’m all set up in my office on a magic wooded street cupped by streams, in Rainier Valley/ Mt Baker, South Seattle, unceded Duwamish territories….

Brownstargirl Tarot is back and in unceded Duwamish territories

(photo: mine, graffiti stencil found in Bed Stuy, Brooklyn summer 2015.) Well, when I was writing this last weekend,  I was actually at one of my favorite places in the world- Fancyland, the rural Northern California queer land community where I finished my memoir, Dirty River, in 2012-2013. Two years later,  I was at Fancyland on…

Brownstargirl Tarot is Back and Living in Brooklyn!

Hi world, After a spring that blew so many people, including myself, wide open, I am back on this blog and beginning to open my magical practice again. This spring took me on a 5.5 week book tour launching my new book Bodymap, from Three Fires Confederacy Territories to many points across North America. I can’t…

work hiatus from middle of march til May!

Divination as Psychic Homeopathy

I’ve gotten more open about being a healer- I can even say it to people without coughing. It’s when they ask me, “What kind of healing?” that I still stammer a bit. I can joke with friends about being Deanna Troi identified, or being  “psychic tarot card reader identified”, but it’s still a profession with a…
