Hi! I'm Joy Vernon, a Certified Professional Tarot Reader, Astrologer, and a Teacher of Traditional Japanese Reiki. This site is dedicated to helping you discover, connect to, and express your higher self -- the part of you that is a perfect expression of who you really are -- the part which is completely you. 

Experience and Expertise

Joy Vernon Tarot and Reiki provides the tools and guidance to help you express yourself truthfully and uniquely. I have over 25 years' experience reading tarot for clients. My specialty is esoteric tarot, which layers astrological and qabalistic symbolism onto the traditional tarot structure. Under the guidance of my teacher, I learned tarot through Italo Calvino's novel Castle of Crossed Destinies. Then after years of additional self-study, I dived into the nineteenth-century divination handbook, Book T, by Samuel MacGregor Mathers. Extensive study and training helped me develop expertise in the methodologies developed by the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, bringing incomparable accuracy and detail to my readings.

Innate Empathy, Practicality, and Vision

Astrologically, my natal chart features a grand trine in water with a kite configuration to Virgo, grounding innate empathy with practical guidance. Saturn conjoins my Aries Sun in the tenth house, a disciplined leadership which formerly was expressed in my work as a theatrical director and stage manager, but now I bring artistic vision and structured organization to my clients. I have worked full-time as a tarot reader, astrologer, and metaphysical teacher since 2010.

I Work with Clients In-Person in the Denver Metro and Across the Country and Around the World via Zoom or Skype.

The Empyrean Key for Personal Transformation

My specialty is a system I developed called Empyrean Key Transformational Guidance, which combines tarot, astrology and energetic initiation to help you break through blocks and align yourself with your higher purpose to achieve your goals. This 3-step technique puts the power in your hands, because with my expert guidance, you do your own work to understand yourself by analyzing the symbols of your natal chart as expressed through the suggestive art of the tarot cards, a process similar to unraveling the mystery of dreams. Following my step-by-step process, you then develop a personalized symbol that you can use prayerfully or playfully to manifest your desired change in your life. As our last step, I will perform a spiritual blessing for you, energetically initiating you with the symbol you developed. I also provide meditations, rituals, and fun practices that offer a variety of ways for you to continue and deepen the work on your own. It takes a savvy, creative, and courageous client to perform this difficult but revealing work, so I do not accept all applicants to this program. I am not taking Empyrean Key clients at this time, so please schedule another type of reading, or contact me to apply for my next opening. 

The Opening of the Key for Pinpoint Accuracy

I am known for my strengths with The Opening of the Key, the masterpiece of all tarot readings. This complicated spread starts with a general overview, then proceeds to pinpoint where in your life you need to focus. Then through an intricate series of steps based on ancient esoteric symbolism, a unique array of cards surrounding one pre-chosen to represent you comes into play, giving you your unique guidance. This spread easily delineates complicated situations and questions about tangled areas of life. This in-depth, layered, and increasingly detailed reading can only be successfully performed by the most skilled readers. I have the rare combination of knowledge and intuition few readers can equal to bring you definitive clarity regarding your quest in life. 

Astrology, Traditional Tarot, and Classes

I also offer astrology readings to help you understand your personal strengths and challenges and what's happening for you now and next, and tarot readings for insight, direction, and clarity about the future.

I teach soul-exploring and mind-expanding classes in tarot, astrology, Reiki, qabalah, mythology, ceremonial magic, and other related esoteric studies.

You are welcome to stay as long as you like and visit as often as you wish as you advance on your journey to becoming completely you!
