Why Embodiment?

I’ve decided to focus on exploring magic and ritual through the lens of embodiment and reclamation in this season of my life because it feels like the most exciting and important thing to do.

When I started to read the tarot I often just turned the cards, found a logical explanation for whatever was showing up for me and only engaged my mind. I guess given the culture we are living in this is normal. As a survivor I understand that our bodies are not always a safe place to be in and that it takes intention and healing to make them a habitable, safe and grounded home.

Over time I noticed that my tarot readings became more potent when I made time work with them in my body and to process things not just mentally, but with all of my self. I started to weave movement and plant magic into little rituals and played with scents, textures and music to explore the archetypes I was seeing. I really love the richness that can come from this play and would like to offer it to others too.

My embodiment readings ask you to choose a card you whose energy you want to embody at this point in your life. Maybe you want the emotional depth of the Queen of Cups, maybe you want to shed some old skin through the Death card or maybe you want to be Strength in a challenging situation. Trust your intuition to know what’s right for you.

I will create and audio record a tarot reading for you that explores what this embodiment can look like – I will draw cards to look at qualities you already possess, things that can be released, things that can be prioritised and tools that might be supportive. None of what I share will be prescriptive and you get to choose what feels right for you. I see these readings not as fortune telling or make overs, but as a mirror to guide you towards more self-awareness, intuition, self-care and trust in yourself.

My readings are audio recorded and are being send to you within 5-7 working days. 

I will create a custom five card spread and include a ritual suggestion, journaling prompts and a plant friend to work with in my audio recording alongside a picture of the spread. You are invited to explore the reading in your journal, to create a ritual for yourself with my guidance and to see if you want to work with the plant I have suggested – that way we are co-creating an experience that can provide you with lots of space for self-exploration, embodiment, courage and magic.

All readings are offered on a sliding scale

– you decide what you want to pay between $33 – $55.  

Want some mentoring?

That’s possible too! You can book two additional Skype sessions with me to get some extra support. Just tick the box on the intake form before you make your payment (reading + two sessions of mentoring is $197) and you can then book your sessions through my calendar here

These mentoring sessions are a chance to explore your questions in more depth, to find ways for you to integrate small rituals into your everyday life, to make deeper commitments to embodiment and self-love and to figure out what magic means to you. You will leave feeling more confident about your practices and benefit from gentle accountability, open ears and extra inspiration.

If you want ongoing support you can also consider becoming a Patreon to receive monthly ritual kits and regular readings. 

My Approach

I want my work as a tarot reader to be as accessible, trauma informed and magical as possible. I wont ever prescribe anything to you, predict your future or tell you that if only you tried harder you would get better. I believe you are already beautiful and perfect and that you can co-create your future. To me the tarot is a way for us to learn to trust our own minds and our intuition, which I believe is something that patriarchy often prevents us from. In this sense I think that the tarot can be both radical and healing and a way to nurture our resistance.

You get to decide what feels valuable to you and you are invited to leave the rest. If we are doing a relationship reading we will focus on you – your thoughts, feelings and the way you can show up. This is about you checking in with yourself and finding new ways to listen to your intuition, to nurture strong boundaries and to practice deep self-care. By actively participating in the ritual through journaling prompts and plant magic you will not just “consume” someone else’s interpretation of the cards but co-create some beautiful, long-lasting effects.

That’s how we become magic.

Thank you.
Wow.
Thank you.
As I just posted on Facebook, you are magic.
Within a few minutes, I was grounded, centered, and felt like we were having tea together.  Within 6 minutes, I was teary; 10 I was weeping.  It was beautiful.  Yarrow, you touched on things with such grace and directness, I can’t believe we haven’t known each other for years.  Your magic is real.  Thank you.   <3

Thank you so much for my reading. It was such a beautiful gift to have yesterday. I love your process and how you interpret the cards so sensitively. It all resonated with me and I feel much more hopeful about myself and my capabilities. It was a real reminder to me to connect with my body in kind, beautiful ways.
