Tarot Readings

Usually a ten card spread to gain perspective on your situation, and what you can do about it.


Find out the cards you were dealt at birth. Based on astrology, it's like a horoscope, but with Tarot cards. Usually discounted if purchased with a reading.


I'm an experienced instructor with a MAED. Popular topics include: Tarot 101 (perfect for beginners), divination, card magick, symbolism in art, cartomancy, and ethics.

Bone Readings

Coming soon! Conjure style bone reading. If you prefer Sangoma style bone reading, I can recommend you to another reputable reader.


Divination readings, lectures, and workshops available for your next festival, convention, or event.*

Private Parties

Looking for unique entertainment for your party guests? Tarotscopes make excellent party favors, or consider providing real tarot readings or lessons.

*Please note, travel and accommodation expenses may apply if outside the Omaha metro area.

"Tomorrow belongs to those
who can hear it coming."

David Bowie


Don't take my word for it...

"The future is no more uncertain
than the present."

Walt Whitman

Mel Who?

I call it like I see it, and my cards take no sass!

My art background drew me to the RWS tarot, with its layers of symbolism. I'm a total nerd. I try to use my powers for good, profanity notwithstanding. It isn't about me - I am just a vessel. I love being someone's first reader, so please let me know if you're a first-timer.

I take ethics seriously. I am not a doctor or a lawyer, and I don't play one on TV. I'll advise you to seek professional help when indicated. I give practical advice, because it's better if you do the work yourself (much cheaper too).

Where's Mel?

"Use your wits, use your eyes. Perhaps you use your physical eyes too much and only see the mask. Find eyes within, look for the door into the unknown country."

Pamela Colman Smith

Mel Sightings

Where have you seen me?

If you spot me in the wild at these events, send in a picture!
Apparently, I forget to take pictures at these things.

“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?"
"That depends a good deal on where you want to get to."
"I don't much care where –"
"Then it doesn't matter which way you go.”

Alice and the Cheshire Cat (Lewis Carroll)

No matter what the cards have in store for you,
I'll show you how you are in control of your future.
