My approach when reading the cards is to connect to the wisdom in your heart. I believe that within your heart is a treasure map showing the way to your most fulfilling life. I believe that in the dilemmas you face, the most valuable guidance you can find is within you. But I also believe that we as people tend to mislead ourselves either by reacting to the opinions of our well-meaning loved ones or by attempting to solve the matters of the heart using our own logic. The wisdom of the heart surpasses all logic and cuts through all attitudes and beliefs. Yet it can be difficult to access that quiet, still wisdom when our thoughts are charging full speed ahead. My intention is to connect to the truth in your heart, to give voice to that truth so that it penetrates your awareness, to integrate your unconscious with your conscious mind, your shadow with your light, your suffering with your joy, your pride with your shame, to see the fragments of you as whole. This is Twilight - where the sun and moon share one sky.
My aim is for you to come out of the reading more deeply connected to your truth and to the generous spirit of the universe, and to receive from these sources whatever it is you need in order to live your most fulfilling life - or to simply get through the day. Your specific needs may vary from day to day, even from moment to moment (clarity, encouragement, new perspective, enlightenment, healing, validation, understanding how your past shaped you, simply been seen and heard, etc). I do my best to tune into what you need right now and to check in frequently as the conversation progresses. For this, I rely heavily on my intuition and deep, reflective listening.
"Your presence & miraculous communication are such a gift! Appreciate you appearing in life SOOO VERY MUCH! Very insightful and illuminating. Your readings are Pure Magic. Truly... I'm in flight to NYC and as a result of this reading am in a centered state of feeling like I have 'Arrived'. As if I have already walked both paths & now embody the wisdom of both. And it is not so much a matter of what I choose, but rather waking and walking in complete, content joy, living in & for the now in the clarity of light and love and presence."

"I was astonished at Alanna's ability to see into my heart, my soul and my current reality with such clarity. She was able to express in the gentlest way things I might do to make my life happier and more fullfilling. I am grateful for opportunity to have had her read with me." -Jean, Nov 2017

"Alanna has a quality about her that makes feeling safe with her easy. She listens from her heart without judgment and with a clear desire to hear and understand the speaker's truth. These pieces, combined with her knowledge of the cards and intuition, made the reading she did for me a wonderful experience. Her guidance helped me articulate for myself some of the questions that had been gnawing at me surrounding a particular decision point I was in. I gained clarity on stories I'd been telling myself about who I am and have been in the world. At one point, she said something back to me that I'd been talking around in a very clear, simple way, and I felt that welling up inside that comes when a truth has been uncovered and brought to light—so often the first necessary step to creating a new, deeper truth. Her interpretation of the cards offered perspective and possibility. And she joyfully welcomed my reactions and interpretations. Her belief that the person she's reading for has the answers within her or himself is a lovely key to the depth of the reading. I felt heard and honored, and I ended the session with some new tools in my belt of perception. Alanna, please use this as a blurb or testimonial anywhere you want. Thank you. Anyone else who's interested, please take Alanna up on her offer. I've no doubt she'll find herself in high demand as she moves forward along her path of readings." -Holly, May 2017
"I am unfamiliar with tarot readings and did this out of curiosity and just for fun. I was in for a surprise! A recent (positive) life changing event left me with overwhelming emotions and many paths to explore. The meanings of the cards that turned up were startlingly relevant to questions both asked and not yet asked and led to other more clarifying questions. Alanna is a very good listener, thoughtful and intuitive, and her reading helped me better understand what I needed to give myself and also what others needed from me. I highly recommend a reading with Alanna as this was an enlightening experience and I am left feeling more in harmony with the the universe." -Carol, May 2017
"Alanna provided my tarot card reading with such insightful, accuracy. Her gentle approach addressed the very issues that were being questioned in my life. Alanna encouraged my participation to gain a deeper exploration into the meaning of the cards. I was able to experience much deeper clarity of my circumstances through her thoughtful explanation, as well as appreciate the necessary position I am in at this time in my life. She provided incredible opportunity that has helped me to gain further perspective. I was given many pearls of wisdom with my tarot card reading that really hit home and I have been able to apply this knowledge into my daily life. I acknowledge that Alanna has divine ability and I am appreciative for having experienced her incredible intuitive gift." -Brian, Apr 2017 "I have been able to enjoy joining in on a few of Alanna's Tarot meetups and know that she has the ability to put people right at ease as well as to make people feel safe in small group settings to be able to share their thoughts and interpretations. Alanna has such amazing insight when it comes to the Tarot so I was blessed to have the opportunity to sit down with her in a one on one setting and share a beautiful reading. Right away Alanna guided me and helped me open up to some questions I wanted to explore about my life's journey at this time. She was able to connect with me on an emotional level and with an open heart which definitely came through with the cards that were chosen. Alanna is very intuitive and what she saw and how she read the cards opened me up to new perspectives and to look at things in different ways. She also made me feel confident in my own ability to be able to explore some of these paths. I left the reading feeling very uplifted and joyful as to what may lay ahead for me on this journey. I would without question recommend Alanna for a Tarot reading her knowledge and wisdom of the cards is a gift. Thank you Alanna for sharing this gift with others and myself." Beth, Jun 2017
