Tarot Card by Card - Learn tarot card meanings

Want to learn the tarot card meanings?

Tarot Card by Card will help you master the cards in a hip, modern, and fun way! 

Sick of the “standard” interpretations?

I hear ya. After a while, it becomes one big ole tarot snoozefest. Meh.

Which is why I decided to shake things up and out with my own modern slant on the tarot. There’s nothing typical about how I interpret the cards. In this series you get tarot card meanings plus reversals, advice, and affirmations for each card. On top of it, I provide suggested theme songs, attributes, and raps.  

Yep,  you read that right – I’m doing a rap for each card.  


Why?  Because I have found that mad rhymes are a great way to get something to stick in my skull. And for those who know me well, you know I am a fan of hip hop – so yep – that’s how it’s going to go down around here.  


And yes, everything is in order – sorry but I have Virgo tendencies and I like some order around The Tarot Lady hub.

Ready? Oh, don’t worry – it won’t be the usual.  

Git ready to get your tarot on like Donkey Kong.
