Tarot Card Readers


Samantha Goldberg Blackthorn (she her)

Samantha, a Welsh Jewish woman, epitomizes the essence of lifelong learning and exploration. As a dedicated seeker, world traveler, mystic, and musician, she finds profound connection and inspiration in the realms of folklore, symbolism, sacred texts, herbalism, and the esoteric arts.

Her journey with the tarot began at the age of 16, when she embarked on a transformative odyssey across the country in a school bus alongside an Appalachian mystic. This early immersion ignited her passion for the tarot, a passion that only deepened over time. In 1999, Samantha encountered a psychic medium and tarotlogist in Mexico whose teachings illuminated fresh perspectives on tarot interpretation, enriching her understanding of the cards.

Since 1991, Samantha has been extending her intuitive gifts to others through tarot readings, intertwining her studies in botany and anatomy from university with her spiritual practice. With  compassionate  and profound insight, she guides individuals in navigating life's myriad choices, from career decisions to matters of the heart and beyond.

Samantha's collaborative spirit shines through her partnership with her daughters and her husband, Mr. Blackthorn. Her and Mr. Blackthorn  co-authored the accompanying book for "The Journey to the Tower Tarot," featuring art by Michael Garlington and Natalia Bertotti. Furthermore, she has crafted comprehensive curriculum for tarot courses, including those offered at Ace of Cups Wellness, where she is deeply involved.

Embracing her role as a mentor, Samantha welcomes new clients and apprentices into her fold, offering guidance and support through her mentorship program. With Samantha Blackthorn by your side, you're not just receiving a reading or guidance – you're embarking on a transformative path toward your magical potential.

Kyjah was born into an ancestry of mystics. Kyjah has mystics on both her Jewish and Cuban sides of her family. She herself is a talented and intuitive mystic who feels called to work with the magical realm. Growing up part time in Mexico her first tarot teacher instilled in her a deep connection with the tarot at a very young age. Because of this she has been looking through the lens of the tarot her entire life. Kyjah grew up traveling the world with her mom who played in bands, carnivals, freakshows, set up museum of oddities, taught workshops and was homeschooled.  She focused her studies on  literature, botany, magic, psychology, acting, improvisation and dance. She did not have to find magic, it was infused in her life from the womb. Plants and nutrition were taught to her as medicine When she was sick, herbalists and cuaranderas were called to help heal her. All this taught her ways of connecting to her divine self and enables her to channel messages. Today she is focusing on studying herbs, reading tarot and teaching mystic arts. She is currently teaching glamour magic and tea blending. In her free time Kyjah can be found gardening, enjoying Austin and cooking with her wife Katie.
