Welcome to Gryphon Card Readings

Supporting Artists with readings from a very queer point of view


Have you lost touch with your muse, or do you have multiple good ideas to choose from?


Perhaps you are unsure of how to move forward with your current work In progress; how to finish it, and how (or if) to present it to the world.


Do you think outside the proverbial box, or feel trapped in one?


I can help you uncover patterns and cycles- to avoid or embrace as you move forward.


My specialty is providing readings for other creative folks– artist, writer, crafter, performer, musician, or however you channel your muse. I have multiple WIP and notes of potential projects. I’ve come to understand (thanks sales career) that having prospects “in the hopper” is not necessarily a bad thing. It’s keeping them in balance with current projects.


eMail Readings:
Some readers prefer to have their client in the room, or on Skype, for the reading. I prefer doing email readings because I don’t want to be influenced by your body language or reactions to what I say. I have a variety of prepared spreads (card layouts) or can customize one to suit your needs. For more details, or to book a reading please visit my Etsy shop.


Phone Readings
Live readings via telephone may be available; on a case-by-case basis. Please contact me to be considered.


My Experience:
I have always been a Creative; mostly involved in photography, poetry and graphic design. My world view starts from a position of queer love and acceptance. I came out as gay in 1978; self-identifying as queer for almost two decades.


Introduced to the Tarot by my partner in 1980; together with our roommate we studied cards and other divination tools. More information on my spiritual background and experience is on my Biography page. I spent too many years afraid that I could not be successful (financially) using my intuition, empathy and life experience to help others. But I realize there truly is no time but the present.
