Hi. My name is Ronda. I read Tarot, write Stuff and make things.

I’m owner & creator of TaoCraft Tarot blog, podcast and Etsy shop

I started reading Tarot and oracle cards in 1992 which means I have 30 years experience (!) with intuition development. Distance readings are my specialty and they are available to order by email anytime with no appointment needed. Please visit TaoCraft Tarot for all of the details. In-person individual and party Tarot are once again OPEN but with a smaller schedule and service area than pre-pandemic.

I hold a Ph.D. in Natural Health, a B.S. in Medical Science, certification as Reiki Master-practitioner in the Traditional Usui style and I’m a retired Tai Chi instructor. Before 2000 I worked as a physician assistant in psychiatry and cardiac cath lab. After 2000, I entered a remote study Ph.D. program (CCNH, Birmingham AL) and transitioned to freelance work offering distance Reiki sessions and online natural health tutorials for stress reduction.

I didn’t set out to be a Tarot reader (who does?) I’ve read for myself (why PAY for it when I can DIY it just as well?) friends and family for years. A good friend encouraged me to go public with my readings. At first, I began professional Tarot work as a way to help finance my dissertation expenses. Because Holistic health really does serve emotional and spiritual well-being as much as physical health, I kept Tarot as part of my Natural Health work. I’ve seen Tarot readings reduce stress and ease difficult emotions time and time and time again for hundreds of clients. Tarot was far and away the most popular part of anything I did and over time evolved to be the primary focus of my freelance work.

I’ve written a handful of short e-books. They are available for instant download in .pdf format in my Ko-fi shop along with email Tarot readings in the open commissions menu. Reiki and Relaxation is the ebook version of my Ph.D dissertation. More titles are in the works.

PeaceTarot and Triquetra: The Dance of Worlds are also on amazon.com for Kindle.

I really do like to make things. While knitting is a hobby, I also make hand crafted mala style meditation beads and unique beaded jewelry that are available in the Etsy shop.

I’ve recently joined Scott Township Public Library as a circulation desk assistant and will be leading “A Taste of Scott Township” (cooking club) every month.

Stuff is my personal blog. It’s pretty much random & ranty with a little natural health sprinkled in. If you are looking for Tarot content, that’s over on the TaoCraft Tarot site.

Thanks for visiting!
