I grew up among people who experienced ghosts and accepted psychic abilities, or extra ordinary perception (ESP), as it was called back then, as normal. As a child, I witnessed a woman at the kitchen table reading a deck of playing cards. I wanted mine read, but was told that “the stars move too quickly for children.” Even then, I recognized a creatively crafted “no” when I heard one.
When I was 17, I stumbled upon an unopened box of Tarot cards and a book in the basement. I promptly opened them and began my first reading. The deck contained only the 22 cards of the major arcana, and, having no experience, I used what I call ‘the recipe method’ – I just read the meanings from the book. I don’t remember my question, but I do remember the answer — “I would get money and travel.” I quickly dismissed this preposterous answer and forgot about the reading.
Going into the tarot reading as a skeptic, Marla immediately put me at ease with her great perspective. Now I see the tarot reading as a valuable gift and I keep referring back to it for reassurance and inspiration. Marla is right on, she addressed every important area of my life without possibly knowing any of them. She flowed easily from sharing hard facts to showing possibility and opportunity. She coached me as she sensed my questions and dilemmas. Marla is tuned in, understands people, energies, and courses of events. I highly recommend her as a tarot reader and as a coach!

Marla does tarot by telephone. She asked me to share thoughts on what I might like to learn, and after my endless babbling she summarized “What I think I heard is…” and consolidated this into a half a dozenish words (yeah, I guess I did say that) and gave me a tarot reading. While she was reading the cards we were dialoguing about what intuitively might make sense as well; it wasn’t simply a one-sided “here are your cards and here is what they mean.” I walked away with some important points to ponder; I feel stronger and more resolved. (Wow, it’s tough to say how great someone is without giving out personal information.) Get to know Marla, you’ll be glad you did.

Have you ever felt from a psychic or tarot reading that it was just general information and felt like it was a waste of time? Well, this is not the case with Marla! The tarot reading she gave me felt very personal and like it was meant for me. There was a clear message coming through that resonated and will help me progress on my path. The way she uses her intuitive skills in combination with the tarot is evident and insightful. I learned a lot, thank you, Marla!
Then a funny thing happened. At the time, I was a high school senior in New Jersey. I had accepted admittance to Rutgers University – a local state college. Although I had applied to Pitzer – a private college in California, I didn’t believe that I would be able to go. One day in April, I got an acceptance letter from Pitzer. They awarded me with enough financial aid that I was able to go. Then I remembered the reading. I got money and was traveling to California. I packed those cards with me when I flew off in August.
Throughout the years, I taught myself and gave readings to friends. I also took classes in psychic development, meditation, tarot, etc. Last year I decided to start giving readings over the phone. I knew other people did this, but I like personal contact. It turns out that the telephone results have been just as good as face-to-face, and now I do Zoom.
Despite the outcome of my first reading, they usually aren’t about making predictions. I’m not likely to tell you that you’re going to win the lottery. And how useful would that be? Maybe you will, and maybe you won’t. No one gets 100% accurate information. And what would you do with accurate information about the future? Think about that. One of my teachers had school-aged children. They used to ask her if they would pass their tests. She figured, if she told them they would pass, they wouldn’t study, and if she told them they wouldn’t pass, they wouldn’t study. So, she wouldn’t say.
Postscript… Years after finding the Tarot cards, I asked my mother how they got in the basement. She didn’t know anything about them. Maybe they were a forgotten housewarming gift. Surely, they were meant for me.
