Kim’s literary approach to tarot…

I was an English literature major back in university. I studied Shakespeare, poetry, and various genres of contemporary literature. (My favourite was and still is fantasy literature, hehe!) Long story short – I was in love with unpacking ideas that were expressed through the actions of a character, through imagery & symbolism, through theme, and through the general wonderworkings of fiction – and then seeing how those ideas relate to me and the way I see the world.

And as I observed the similarities between the system of tarot and the study of literature, it was kind of a no-brainer that I ended up applying my nerdy & literary tendencies to reading tarot cards. I’ve always thought that the process of reading tarot cards is kind of like reading poetry. You savour a poem by allowing yourself to be touched by it. You allowed yourself to enter its space-time and drop, landing softly at its core.
