I'm Erin MacKeen and I'm an artist, writer, and professional tarot reader. These pursuits are all things that help me understand who I am and that might help you too. They are interwoven in my practice as tools for recovery and self-discovery and are my methods for consoling myself and finding joy in the midst of a deeply mysterious and unpredictable existence. I offer them as an act of service and community care. I'm seeking collaborative ways that we can individually and collectively recover, become better resourced, and feel safe and supported to be our true selves in defiance of a society that is structured to make us feel like there's never enough and we are never enough.
My inspirations come from many sources, but I am consistently inspired by nature, tarot, folklore, the moon, community care, witchcraft, memoirs, and crows. I hope you enjoy exploring my site and don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
I also encourage you to subscribe to my weekly newsletter using the form at the bottom of this page where I provide offerings for the week ahead, tarot pulls, and special discounts for my community.
FOOL'S ANCHOR TAROT
I'm Erin MacKeen and I've been studying and reading tarot for three years. My practice is called Fool's Anchor because The Fool is the soul at the centre of an on-going journey through the cards and through life. The Fool is you and me, and the cards can be our anchor on the voyage. In my experience, using tarot as a tool for grounding and centring has the potential for deep personal transformation. I've built a relationship with this archetypal visual system that offers meaning and medicine both for day-to-day concerns, and in larger life transitions, contractions, expansions, and celebrations. It offers insight and perspective that can help us tap into our intuition and knowing to support growth and it is natural to need help with this (it's why I get my cards read too!).
