WHO INSPIRES YOU? 

Joie: My dad. He’s been a great influence on my life and I’ve always looked up to him for his tenacity, spirituality and wisdom. He’s one of the reasons why I am who I am and where I am today.

WHAT IS THE BEST ADVICE YOU HAVE RECEIVED?

Joie: “Never set yourself on fire to keep others warm”. It’s something I read online that’s just always stuck with me.

HOW DID YOU GET INTO TAROT CARDS?

Joie: I’ve always been spiritual so it was something I always knew existed but never really got into it until the later half of my young adulthood. I’ve also always been open to readings when I see them at flea markets or booths and I guess I eventually got interested in doing readings myself.

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE DECKS AND HOW DO YOU CHOOSE A DECK? 

Joie: I know this sounds cliche but I genuinely do believe the deck chooses you, like how crystals do. I love decks with beautiful illustrations and colour because there can be so many messages in the photos and colours too.

TAROT CARDS HAVE A BAD REP FOR BEING SCARY. HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THAT?

Joie: I think anything can be scary if you will it. They are just cards if you think about it. It’s how much power you choose to give it that sets the tone for your experience. While I think tarot cards are gifts and tools to get messages from the spirit world, I also think that we have the power, at the end of the day, over our thoughts and choices and shouldn’t let the cards rule our lives.

 

ANY TIPS FOR BEGINNERS WHO ARE INTERESTED IN TAROT CARDS? 

Joie: Go in with an open mind! Know that you are the one in control of everything that happens. Don’t go into a reading with expectations. “Bad” cards don’t always mean “bad things”. Be open to different perspectives and trust that you are in control and have the power to make decisions to alter your path.
