Our Tarot Philosophy
Make Your Own Magic
We consist of everything the world consists of, each of us, and just as our body contains the genealogical table of evolution as far back as the fish and even much further, so we bear everything in our soul that once was alive in the soul of men.Hermann Hesse, Demian
The cards don't control your fate. Learn Tarot and control yours.We don’t believe in divination. We know this will probably alienate a lot of you, but we’re taking a big stance on that for one reason: we are here to give you control, not the cards, nor some old guy with a funny beard in the sky, or any other jerk that tries to tell you what to do or what your life will be like. Only you get to decide that.
Tarot is your mirror. The cards help you create your story.Tarot is a language whose vocabulary is our universal experiences as humans, and if you learn to interpret it, it becomes a great tool that helps you develop your own narrative. What you read and interpret is a reflection of your own inner world. Exploring that is so important to self-development.
We make magic by manipulating symbols and telling our stories.Our lives are a constant interchange between our inner and outer worlds. As humans, we are programmed to perceive ourselves reflected in everything. And we act according to those beliefs. Every single decision that we make shapes the world into being.
Thus, if we had deep self-knowledge, we could unlock every individual’s ability to change the world as we see it. If we all could be who we were really meant to be, we believe the world would be infinitely more interesting.
By connecting to yourself, you build deeper empathy with the world.The stories the cards tell are common to all of us; we are all traveling the Fool’s Journey. The world is full of platforms that connect us technologically without teaching us how to form meaningful and authentic relationships. If we learn the story that is told within, we can start to find the commonalities between our stories and others. This is how we build bridges, how we learn to empathize with the other.

About the Headmistress
Labyrinthos is still run by one zany person, who manages everything from the chatting you up on your customer service emails, to writing the blogs, updating the website, illustrating each of the card decks we have available on the site, coding the app, and sometimes (when unavoidable) posting on social media.I operate on the principle that sacred knowledge should be free. For me, that means that I don’t make a single cent from the app, but instead I rely on purchases of our tarot decks to keep this little project running. Over the years, I’ve had folks that have asked to purchase the app, from former bosses to large media conglomerates that acquire applications to run ads and sell data. But my rigid stubbornness prevails, goddamnit! This app is an offering, one that I’m choosing to keep away from exploitation so that its chosen intention remains pure. I hope it can bring you some peace to your day, however small it may be.
As odd as it may sound, I try and keep my voice and personal experiences from existing on this site too much. Maybe because I feel that when I fade into the background, it gives you more space to grow, to find the directions that your own spirit wants to take, and the places of your own psyche that you’d like to illuminate.
In real life, you’d probably find me hiding my earnestness behind self-deprecating jokes that are maybe not jokes; the things that are most precious to me are things that are difficult to articulate.
I'm grateful to be on this journey together with you. So uh, stay snazzy out there, superstar. Bye now!
