Hi! I’m Sage.
I’m also a Tarot reader and the writer / creator of the Sage Words Tarot blog & podcast.
I’ve been reading cards since around 1992 which adds up to 30 years of experience with Tarot and intuition development (!)
I didn’t originally start out to be a Tarot reader (who does?) At first I did readings for friends (why PAY for it when you can DIY it?) then a close friend suggested I go online with my readings. I offered professional psychic Tarot readings through Keen, Advice Trader and AllExperts under my old internet handle Baihu. After doing hundreds of online readings (I stopped counting after 400) in 2003 I opened my own Tarot practice with ModernOracleTarot.com, the Tarotbytes blog and the now-defunct Quirk & Flotsam shop on Etsy. It was all good work, but had become a hodge-podge of branding and inconsistent messaging over the years. In 2018 I levelled it all and re-branded everything as TaoCraft Tarot.
The TaoCraft name was drawn from my love of Taoist philosophy. My work will always be guided by the principles of simplicity, authenticity, and kindness. It was also drawn from my affinity a solitary eclectic magickal path. Taocraft means a lot to me, but not so much to anyone else and that’s a problem because these Tarot readings aren’t about me – they are about YOU.
January 1, 2023 TaoCraft Tarot becomes Sage Words Tarot.
Sage is a pen name, which protects privacy a little better for both of us these days. Christian nationalism and evangelical bigotry is a real thing. I want this to be a safe space for my fellow atheists and the lgbtquia+ community that is so important to me.
The herb sage has a comforting, familiar scent and flavor that most of us know from home cooking and holiday turkeys.
In aromatherapy, Sage incense and smudge sticks can clear negative energy, calm anxiety and promote a feeling of general well being.
Most of all, the word sage means something or someone who is wise. The word sage speaks to all of the wisdom that has accumulated around the Tarot cards over the centuries.
Safety, comfort, calmness, wisdom and a feeling that things are going to be alright are all qualities that I hope you’ll experience if we do a Tarot reading together. All of these are qualities I hope you’ll experience when you read the blog or listen to the podcast.
The private readings, blog, podcast, shop & socials are all the same as before except with a new logo and a new name. Party readings are closed – my focus is on you, the individual.
