Sky. Tarot is a divination system that uses a set of cards to gain insight and achieve greater control over issues involving relationships, opportunities, and life changes it can also help guide personal growth stages. As an Oracle I also use my Faith and connection with Spirit and the Ancestors to heighten the reading. My message to anyone who sits before me is that which can be discovered are revelations from the past, interpretation of the present, and insight into the future. I am a daughter of the Vodou tradition initiated by Manbo Sallie Ann Glassman, of NOLA’s and Houngan Edgar Jean-Louis, of Haiti in May of 2007. Please see my Website www.tarotbysky.com for a full description of all services that I offer. If you have any questions, please ask me. I am very open to discussion.
