Humanity, take a good look at yourself. Inside, you’ve got heaven and earth, and all of creation. You’re a world—everything is hidden in you.

Archetypal Tarot Reader, Spiritual Educator & Sacred Feminist
When we become numb, confused, hurt, or exhausted, when we feel ourselves drifting farther and farther away from the sacred center that tells us who we are, when we are utterly stuck and unable to visualize any path forward, we're actually in the pinch of transformation. We are sitting in the miserable discomfort of the space before renewal.
The tarot is the perfect tool to deeply tend to this space, to guide the realignment to the soul’s journey of individuation. When we use the tarot archetypally, through the window of depth psychology, it allows us to glimpse our psycho-spiritual truths. It empowers us, deepens us, brings us into communication with the wisdom of our souls. And through that space, we are not only restored, but able to make more conscious choices for our lives.
Mariana began her study of Jung and the archetypes when she stumbled upon a little book in her grandfather’s attic library called The Undiscovered Self. After 3 years of Jungian analysis and self-study, she decided to leave her career as a musician and earn her master’s degree in Western Intellectual Traditions from the CUNY Graduate Institute, where she focused on philosophies of magic, transformations of the archetypal Feminine, and the application of Jungian principles on Western thought, all of which converged in her research of the tarot.
After completing her degree, Persephone’s Sister born. As a platform of both spiritual education and personal guidance, Mariana blends depth psychology, mythology, mysticism, sacred feminism, and occultism to offer insights for the individuation journey.
