Lessons learned from the cards, and the incomparable Jane Stern

Welcome to Your Reading

You may be an old hand at knowing the ins and outs of the tarot deck or a frightened newbie curious but uncertain about what the cards will reveal. You may be a skeptic prepared to lie to me the entire hour to see if I can see through your bluff, or you may be at your wit’s end, looking for any shred of hope in a dismal situation.

Before I even shuffle the deck or hand it to you to shuffle to infuse it with your energy, here is what I already know about you. You wouldn’t be here unless you were at a crossroads in your life and having a hard time finding the correct path. Something has come up that you need hard answers to. A real tarot card reading is intrusive, and—as with psychotherapy—few people want their lives laid bare for fun. If you are looking for a party psychic or an old theatrical witch in a turban, you have come to the wrong place .  .  .  I will tell you what I see in the cards and I will not sugarcoat it, but neither will I be cruel. I am compassionate and know how hard it is to implement change, and how brave you are to let me into your life as a helpmate.


Tarot cards have been used to foretell the future for centuries. In the hands of a sensitive and gifted reader like Jane Stern, they can help clarify the decisions we make every day and realign our lives to work more effectively.

Once the domain of the esoteric and mystical, tarot has many practical applications in today’s world. Stern, a fourth generation tarot reader who has read cards professionally for over forty years, has given the art of the tarot a very modern spin. Using the twenty-two major arcana cards (the “heart of the tarot”) as the basis for the chapters in this book, she has gleaned all she has learned over the years and presents Confessions of a Tarot Reader as a witty, readable, and, above all, useful self-help book.

Drawing on the wisdom of the tarot deck, Stern gives practical advice for every life situation—from tapping into the mystery of your potential and finding enduring and passionate love, to overcoming upheavals and finding sense behind the chaos. The result is a truly singular guide that lifts the veil between this world and the unseen world.

   
 
"[A]n insightful how-to guide that reaches far beyond simple directions for reading tarot cards. . . . [Jane] Stern chronicles the ways in which past readings have served as a launching point for journeys of self-discovery—for both herself and her clients. . . . Weaving anecdotes from her 40 years’ experience tangling with the occult, including particularly memorable readings she’s performed for herself, Stern provides a delightful take on a practice too often derided as scam or mere superstition."
