Tarot

I’ve been reading and learning about tarot since late 2015. It’s been a very helpful tool for me to delve deeper into questions, map out alternative pathways in a situation, uncover recurring patterns, and sharpen the storytelling I employ when considering and experiencing emotions, thoughts, and experiences. I do readings for others who want the same experience, and are curious about new methods of figuring out their personal narrative.

For readings, I aim to have a collaborative conversation with the querent / seeker, to welcome and make space for diversity, and to hold a safe, confidential, and non-judgemental space for exploration. I do not see tarot as a means for predicting the future, and would caution all querents and seekers that tarot will not provide definitive solutions and it is not a replacement for professional or spiritual guidance (eg. therapy, medication, religious practices).

I work with many decks, including Morgan Greer (my first), The Wild Unknown, Slow Holler, Spolia, and Dark Goddess. I write about tarot (among other topics) on my newsletter. To inquire about a reading, you can use my contact form.

“My first reading with Syar was mostly for fun, to see what the fuss was about. My second reading was for clarity— to check if what my mind is consumed with was the best way to spend my energy. I returned because the first casual time gave me more clarity than I thought. It was like a mirror, showing me parts of myself that I didn’t know were there.” – A

“The reading felt a lot like therapy; wading through questions together, and simmering on them long after our session. Above all, I loved the way Syar explained things so simply and how open she was to answering my many questions. She conducts her sessions with patience and intimacy, creating a warm, safe space. Can’t wait for my next read!” – E.A.

“I was in a desperate situation and so exhausted that I thought I would try anything to figure it out so why not tarot? I was very anxious and nervous but Syar was super friendly and patient and talked me through the whole thing. I was a sceptic but it was a lot more like a guided conversation than magic though maybe a little mystical as my cards were very accurate. The reading helped me sort out a very complicated situation and put my mind at ease.” – R.R.

“I was going through a lot of personal turmoil and Syar’s reading helped guide me in refocusing some of the issues I was facing, putting them into greater perspective. I felt like I had more options than I had before, largely thanks to the fact that I was given lots of options in terms of how I wanted to set up the reading. It was a really collaborative and warm session. I also really appreciated the kind frankness of the reading – it really helped settle a lot of the misgivings I had around tarot.” – S.C.
