Welcome to the Tarot Circle
The circle is a sacred space suggesting friendship, community, love, relationship unity and wholeness. There is no beginning and no ending.
You don’t have to look too far to find circles as an integral part of our daily lives. Sun, moon, coins, rings, watch faces, mirrors and plates – the list would be endless. It is such a perfect shape; no sides, no corners and no sharp edges. There is safety, stability and endurance within the circle.
To the Native North American Indians, the circle is the sun, the moon and her children… man and woman. Consider the circle symbol meaning in conjunction with the Native medicine wheels. The medicine wheel gives the sense of the integration of spirit and man, combined for the purpose of greater spiritual understanding and evolution.
Circles were protective emblems to the Celtic mind. Circles were often drawn as protective boundaries, not to be crossed by enemy or evil forces.
In the field of psychology, Dr. Carl Jung described the Self as the product of individuation, which is defined as the process of integrating one’s personality. For Jung, the self is symbolized by the circle (especially when divided into four quadrants), the square, or the mandala.
The Tarot Circle begins it journey, with The Fool, the card number 0, the perfect place to start and ends with The World.
I created the Tarot Circle to integrate my passion for tarot with my love of helping people work through the ups and downs of their life’s journey.
The wonderful Tarot Circle was designed by a very creative friend, Nichole. The trees represent the yearly, cyclic changes and the growth we can experience through exploring the tarot for self-discovery.
The Founder of the Tarot Circle
I’m Marilyn, a Tarot reader, teacher, counsellor, and personal coach. I was introduced to Tarot over twenty years ago and have been fascinated by it ever since.
As a qualified counsellor I have spent my career helping people navigate through the labyrinth of their lives in the hope of finding the answers to life’s toughest dilemmas. For years I attended workshops and training courses in order to develop a wide range of skills to fully support my clients , but still it felt like something was missing.
After much personal research and many tarot readings, I made an important discovery. People who seek out the guidance of a tarot reader approach the opportunity with excitement and an openness of heart and mind that is highly conducive to change. Counselling, on the other hand, is often endured – which greatly decreases the likelihood of a positive outcome.
After this epiphany, I decided to take a leap of faith and combine my two passions; helping people and reading Tarot. It has been such a liberating experience, – one which has allowed me to most effectively use all my wisdom, knowledge and skills to help others understand and live in alignment with their highest purpose. What a perfect fit! I am thrilled to be doing what I love and and feel passionate about. It is extremely satisfying to work with clients who come to the process truly engaged, and as a result are able to gain insight and clarity in their lives.

About the Readings:
Your reading will reflect a practical and grounded approach. It will be presented in a written format, so you can revisit the information at any time. Clear images of the Tarot cards drawn will also be included to foster the creation of a personal connection with the cards.
Your reading will be structured to help clearly define desired results, explore the current energies that surround you, and outline likely outcomes that might result form certain actions. Your reading may contain challenges, options and questions to be pondered before taking a certain pathway or making a decision. Your reading will not contain predictions. I believe you have freedom of choice in life so making predictions is meaningless. your reading will be focused entirely on you and contain information that will empower you to make informed decisions. See a sample reading.
If you are exploring the world of Tarot and reading for yourself, you may need help interpreting a reading. I am here to assist you in finding the gemstones of wisdom buried within the cards! How many times do you draw cards and just wish you could start again? It is very tempting to make an excuse, such as “I wasn’t in the right mindset when I started,” or “I’m a little busy I will do it again when I have more time.” I have made a pact with myself to always read the cards as they are dealt, even if at the time it seems like a struggle. I have found that approaching readings for myself, and others for that matter, with this intention ensures a positive outcome and gives me the satisfaction of knowing that my honesty and integrity are intact.
Tarot Circle is all about helping you learn Tarot for yourself, gain clarity , insight and even answers. It’s a growth process that empowers you to live.
Booking a tarot reading with me can help you cut through the fog, clarify your options, and arm you with the insight to make decisions that serve your highest good.
