Matt About Town: Uncovering the mysteries of the future with a local tarot card reader 

Uncovering the mysteries of the future with a DC tarot card reader

Have you ever wanted your future told, but were afraid you wouldn’t like the prediction?

A local DMV artist is tapping into the power of tarot card reading — to help others navigate the roller coaster we call life, and to let them know there’s nothing to be worried about when it comes to what lies ahead.

In today’s episode of “Matt About Town,” WTOP’s Matt Kaufax sat down with tarot reader and event organizer Skye Marinda to learn more about the power of the cards, positive thinking and of realizing you’re in charge of your own destiny.

During his night amongst new friends in D.C.’s tarot and witchy communities, Matt learned that tarot isn’t necessarily just about predicting the future. It’s also an examination of self: where you are in life, what the future could hold and how the art form can better equip you to make important decisions about what’s ahead.

Come along with Matt as he hears about what his future could have in store.

You can visit Skye’s website to learn more about her, the art of tarot reading and how you can get a reading done yourself. Skye typically also organizes monthly “witchy” event nights at D.C.’s Dew Drop Inn bar in Northeast on the third or fourth Wednesday of every month.
