You are the only tarot authority that matters.
Your intuition, your magic holds the secret to an authentic tarot practice that will guide you toward the action and growth that you dream of.
It’s time to center your own knowing in your tarot practice.
- …returning to the guidebook over and over?
- …second guessing your intuitive nudges in your readings?
- …feeling pigeonholed by your cards, fearful that if something bad comes up you can’t do anything about it?
- …finding yourself ending a reading feeling more powerless than before?
- …struggling to create tarot meanings that reflect your lived experience?
- …looking for a tool that will guide you into empowerment, confidence, and action?
Encountering the Tarot is a facilitated encounter between you, your intuition, and the 78 cards of the tarot. Through the 10 weeks of the course you will be guided through exercises, meditations, and group coaching calls that will strengthen your connection to intuition and create your own framework for understanding the tarot, trusting what resonates, and leaving behind what doesn’t.
Tarot is a nearly 600 year old art. It has been invented and re-invented more times than we can know. It’s time to join this great tradition: re-invent it now, for yourself, for your future.
What would be possible for you if you could throw off the constricting harness of outdated colonialist, essentialist, patriarchal, heteronormative paradigms, and create a tarot practice that honors your lived experience and intuitive knowing?
“Lex didn’t give me THE ANSWER but instead gave me a series of questions to help me make up my own mind. It gave me agency and helped me realize what truly aligned with me. It really is a superpower to give space for folks to find their own answers.” – E.
Encounter Your Own Magic
Free of prescriptive notions of how to read tarot or what each card means you are free to dive deep into your own knowing and unleash your magic.
This is not a one-size-fits-all program. You are welcome here in all your uniqueness, in all your authenticity.
There is no one right way to read tarot – not even my way! I will not be giving you MY tarot definitions.
Instead I will be guiding you through my process for crafting your own definitions for each card of the tarot. Through this process you will develop your own relationship with tarot, crafting it into a tool and companion that will help you grow.
This is tarot not just as a tool for divining things about the world, but tarot as a tool for divining things about yourself.

Hi! I’m Lex. I will be your guide in Encountering the Tarot.
I was first introduced to tarot as a kid, just eleven years old. A friend’s grandmother was a reader, a real old-school psychic. She showed me the deck, explained what the cards meant. The cards were fascinating, gorgeous, layered, & so powerful. I learned to read in her style. Back then, 3 of Swords showed me only heartbreak, betrayal, trauma. The Devil was addiction and pain. It was scary, fixed, disempowering, not to mention gendered & normative as fuck. I stopped reading cards before I turned 13. ⠀
It wasn’t until I was an adult, 26 years old, that I came back to tarot. And when I picked it back up, I made a promise to myself: I would never read with those scary & disempowering definitions ever again. I would read the cards in a way that was liberating, that supported my identity as a queer, disabled, working class person. No longer would I allow myself to be effaced. I bought myself a deck, one without the fixed and rigid illustrations I had come to know was a kid and I set about making my own tarot meanings.
Now, after years of delving deep into my own knowing and into countless tarot books, classes and resources, I am ready to bring you my method for crafting your own authentic and intuitive tarot framework.
Have you found yourself in a similar place?
- Your experience not being reflected in the cards or being actively denied by the cards…
- Feeling constrained by fixed meanings…
- Struggling to dive deeper into the cards…
- Clinging to the guidebook…
- Can’t get past the way the deck still upholds shame, hierarchy, obedience, white supremacy, capitalism…
The truth is you can bring your own tarot practice to live in a way that empowers you, that affirms your lived experience, that deconstructs disempowering beliefs and hierarchies. In this course I guide you through a process for making your own tarot practice.
