We are all about using every tool out there to build our strongest selves and most loving relationships. So in this magical time of year, when the air and atmosphere are changing once again and we get ready to nestle a bit closer to the earth for the winter, how can we use the ancient practice of tarot to gain insight into our ever-changing inner selves? How can the cards offer guidance, wisdom, comfort, and challenge? What about the practice does pop culture misrepresent, and what about the tarot have to offer even the greatest of unbelievers?
On today’s show, tarot reader and author Sasha Graham shares how her experience with tarot has helped her to nurture and guide clients from all walks of life. How the lessons on the cards can inspire everyday moments, including the meals we make (like matching the Nine of Pentacles with a molten lava cake recipe for one!) and the relationships we build. Then, as Ben and Jax are working at very different places in their quest for lasting love, she turns cards for them, applying their lessons to two very specific conundrums.
Sasha was born just after midnight on a chilly Halloween night in New York state’s Adirondack Mountains. She received a BA in Literature and Religion at Hunter College before beginning her tarot work at the Tarot School and opening a private reading practice.
Sasha quickly found work with the fashion and media set, becoming a staple at Fashion’s Night Out and serving clients such as Alice + Olivia, M. Missoni, The Reformation and Christian Louboutin. Sasha and her work have been featured in documentaries and media outlets such as Sirius XM Radio, The Wall Street Journal, The Daily News, WPIX Channel 11 Morning News, MarieClaire.com and Crain’s New York Business. She is the author of Llewellyn’s Tarot Diva, 365 Tarot Spreads, and 365 Tarot Spells, and served as editor and contributing writer of Lo Scarabeo’s Tarot Fundamentals, Tarot Experience, and Tarot Compendium.
Sasha is most proud of her Tarot Outreach Program, developed for New York City’s at-risk, inner city youth. Working with kids transitioning out of the foster care system, Sasha used tarot and symbol as the igniting point of nurturing personal intuition. She taught that trust in oneself can be rebuilt. This trust can be used to empower a population robbed of stability and security.
Sasha, her husband, and daughter split their time between Manhattan and the eerily gothic, “Jane Eyre-esque” landscape of upstate New York. She is working on Llewellyn’s Complete Guide to the Rider Waite Smith Tarot and on her first tarot deck, The Haunted House Tarot, both being released in 2018.
