Tarot Readings with Beth

Using the imagery of the Tarot, Beth helps you explore the issues of your life, looking for synchronicities and seeking clarity for how to make strong choices for your future. Rather than looking at the Tarot as deterministic of a future set in stone, Beth sees the images as pointing to patterns that can be changed and rewoven. Unpacking the meaning of a reading helps you to focus on the potential choices that you can make to change unhelpful patterns of behaving and thinking or to affirm positive patterns.

Beth has been studying and practicing various forms of divination for the past fifteen years, from Tarot to Runes, and African Bones to the I Ching. She enjoys using divination as a tool for personal transformation and spiritual development, and as a way to become attuned to the cycles of the natural world. Along with Sarah, she teaches occasional courses in the Reclaiming Tradition: The Elements of Magic and Rites of Passage.

The cost for a 50-minute reading is $45. Call 717-290-1517 to schedule an appointment.

Readings will be held at Radiance through the winter on the following Saturdays:

December 14, 2010
