Welcome to Gryphon Card Readings
A service of The Digital Gryphon LLC.

I have a number of spreads illustrated here, and at my Etsy Shop, but can also design a custom spread for a slight upcharge, and additional day or two to design and complete. You can request a Custom Spread at my Etsy shop.

Although happy to prepare a personal reading for whatever concerns you, I do specialize in providing readings for other Creatives. I use that term to refer to people involved in certain Creative professions; artist, writer, crafter, performer, musician, or however you channel your muse. I know from personal experience that most any task or assignment may benefit from creative approaches.

eMail Readings:
Some readers prefer to have their client in the room for the reading. Some want the client to do the final cut of cards. I prefer doing email readings because I don’t want to be influenced by the client’s body language or reactions to the cards or what they hear. This allows me to do a reading when this world is quiet and the universe may best be heard. Readings may be booked via my Etsy shop.

My Experience:
Please understand 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. Over the decades I’ve studied a wide variety of spiritual traditions; nature-based ‘pagan’ as well as ‘major world religions’. Introduced to the Tarot by my partner in 1980, together with our roommate we studied cards, astrology, numerology and other divination tools. More information on my spiritual background and experience is on my Biography page.
