I'm a longtime traditional astrologer, short time Lenormand student. My paternal grandmother was born in Rochester, New York and she was a tea leaf reader and a spiritualist. Her mother was from County Clare, Ireland and spoke Gaelic (at least to cuss out the kids! It's seemingly an Irish thing, or used to be). Professionally, I spent several decades as an interpreter, which colors my approach to both astrology and cartomancy. My first deck of RWS was a gift in my Christmas stocking at age 9. I recently began watching Lenormand on Youtube and became enchanted with the linguistic qualities of this system. Thrilled to be here!
