I was honored & privileged to be approached for an article in the world’s top selling Tarot magazine, “Tarosophist International”.  This resulted in a wonderful time talking about the amazing world & effect of Tarot & a subsequent 5-page article in Issue 17.

78 Days Later: Vanessa Barns Interview by Catherine Chandler

Earlier this year, Marcus Katz & Tali Goodwin published the book “Around the Tarot in 78 Days” (pub.Llewellyn) with an accompanying Tarot course. Vanessa Barns is one of the Tarot readers who took part in the course & following it’s completion, she decided to offer, on the Tarot Professionals site, 78 free emailed Tarot readings to other professional Tarot readers & members around the world. Since then (September 10th, 2012) Vanessa has shown herself to be a very adept and gifted reader.

The author Markus Katz said…

“When Vanessa Barns carried her Tarot Reading Quest out (through Tarot Professionals), we were all watching the thread very closely, and she put in a truly incredible amount of work to maintain it and did not go AWOL.  In fact, to do 78 readings in that way was an astonishing task and more time-consuming than you might even suspect.       ”Good job, Vanessa, good job!”
