Welcome to Tarot and You

Most people are searching for ways to reveal and reach their full potential.  We want to know we are on the right path.  The Tarot can help us find answers to questions about our life direction and give us confidence to follow our dreams and pursue our goals. 

I’m Jenny Higgins, a Tarot reader and teac_MG_1248_BWher, a professional member of the Tarot Guild of Australia and a qualified clinical aromatherapist.  I also completed a PhD on women and the transformation of self. 

Like the lotus, which rises from the water’s murky depths pure and untainted, and then blossoms to reveal it’s golden heart, we can take our own inner pilgrimage to find our golden centre and blossom into our full and true potential.  

Tarot for personal transformation

The Tarot contains 78 cards that each relate to specific situations that we encounter over the course of our lives.  The 22 the “major arcana” cards in the deck depict archetypal characters and themes that represent steps along the mythical “journey of life”, with each card  representing a transformative experience along the path to psychological and spiritual wholeness.  Tarot can help us develop our intuition and stimulate the energies at work in our unconscious.  By bringing these energies to light we can open up to a more meaningful and authentic life.

I have seen people who come to me for a Tarot reading have transformative realisations about their lives that may have taken years to awaken to otherwise.  A Tarot reading speaks to us from our “soul’s voice” and can tap into our unconscious and give us information about ourselves that is buried under the busyness and noise of our day to day lives. 

Tarot readings are a wonderful way of helping you find clarity and direction about important areas in your life.  Insights from a Tarot reading can give you the confidence to pursue your aspirations and awaken you to potentials and talents that have remained unexplored.

My services

I give Tarot readings at St. Andrew’s market most Saturdays.  You can find me in the hall.  I also give readings in my home.  Go to the ‘Tarot readings’ tab for more information and testimonials.  Go to the ‘contact me’ tab to get in touch.

Tarot readings at Hens Nights and Pamper Evenings in your beauty salon can really spice up a special occasion.  

I teach Tarot and offer a range of courses and workshops.  In my classes you will learn how to interpret the symbols on the cards, what the archetypal images represent and how the esoteric wisdom of the Tarot can facilitate your spiritual growth.  I will help you develop your intuition and the confidence to read the cards for yourself and others.  Go to the ‘courses’ tab to find out about my Tarot classes and read testimonials from students.

As a qualified clinical aromatherapist I value the power of plant essences to heal body, mind and spirit.  Essential oils can support the personal and spiritual insights revealed by the Tarot to help you grow and transform your life.

WOMEN’S WISDOM AND THE TAROT

BOOK ON TAROT WISDOM AND WOMEN’S WISDOM TO BE PUBLISHED LATER THIS YEAR!

As we age, the urge to live a more spiritual life can become an imperative and many women, like myself, develop their intuitive powers and become Tarot readers, spiritual healers or nurturers of the earth or garden.

I completed a thesis on women and the transformation of self in 2001 and found that in midlife women experience an upsurge of energy and a need to claim their own power and live a more deeply authentic and meaningful life.  They were no longer willing to live in their partner’s shadow or be what other people expected them to be.  As one women described her upsurge of empowerment, “it’s like a force you can’t stop”.

The stories of the women resonate with the ‘journey of life’ depicted in the Tarot of spiritual growth and empowerment.  Their journeys reflect an inner search; a pilgrimage to find their own spiritual truth and direction.

I am currently finishing a book about the Tarot journey and the experiences of the women who shared their stories with me which will be published later in 2014.  I will give a talk on the book at the Tarot Guild’s monthly meeting on the first Saturday in September in Melbourne.
