Anastasia owes her Tarot career to her “permissive” parents; Ian Fleming; Albert R. Broccoli; and Jane Seymour (the English actress, not the English Queen). Despite discovering that Tarot really isn’t about predicting the future, she nonetheless found it fascinating and decided to stick with it. Years later, Anastasia finds herself deeply immersed in Tarot, literally and figuratively, counting herself most fortunate to have many Tarot friends and acquaintances (not to mention decks, books, and other Tarot ephemera). Anastasia is the Executive Director of Tarot-To-Go, is actively involved in the Daughters of Divination, and still manages to find time to travel and enjoy life with her Darling Husband.
Andrew originally discovered the Tarot through his hobby of roleplaying games. Little did he know what he was getting into when he attended his first class! Having been warmly welcomed into the Tarot community on both US coasts, has since expanded his awareness and confidence as a reader. For Andrew, the Tarot has become less a hobby and more a lens to view the world through and hopes one day to have the time, talent and opportunity to make his own Tarot deck.
Artemis J has been reading Tarot with TTG since our beginning, and is always popular at the events he works! Artemis is also an occasional panelist on the Tarot-To-Go podcast. He has enjoyed sharing insight with some of the premiere talents in the Tarot universe. Image what question you would ask if you had the opportunity to interview your favorite author or deck creator? Artemis has been reading professionally throughout the Bay Area for several years. His first tarot deck came to him as a gift back in the early ’90s, which began his journey of exploration into the mystery of the Tarot. He has attended workshops with Angeles Arrien, Joseph E. Martin, Mary Greer, Anastasia, Thalassa from the San Francisco Bay Area Tarot Symposium (SF BATS), and Wald and Ruth Amberstone of the Readers Studio, among others. Favorite decks to read with are Tarot of Dreams, The Cosmic Tarot, Thoth Tarot, and the Rohrig Tarot. One of his passions is exploring the use of Tarot and dreamwork.
Rosered has been studying Tarot for the past 12 years. She is a fan of the Robin Wood deck as well as The Druid Craft Tarot. She was thrilled to be able to hold a 1909 original Pamela Coleman Smith deck at an after party of the 2005 San Francisco Bay Area Tarot Symposium. She is constantly looking for new decks and new reading experiences. Rose Red also works as Anastasia’s assistant and back up memory, keeping track of forms, files, and Anastasia (not the easiest task in the world!), and making sure we have a steady stream of podcast guests.
