  1. You are very generous and your page is fantastic!!! I’m learning a lot… Thank you so much!


      • Hello, Vivien

        I don’t know what is happening but I can’t leave a reply on your page, so I will do it from here:

        “Hahaha, for me it’s more than enough, although I feel happy to go on learning and learning from you. Thanks and have a lovely day!”



      • Hi Regina,

        Sorry you had difficulties leaving a comment. Not sure why that was. However, I do understand when you say that there is more than enough on the site for you already. Glad to hear it.




  2. Yes, Vivien… Let’s see if I can reply now and thank you again for your wonderful site.


    • Oh Brandi,

      Thank you so much for your lovely enquiry. At present the course is not completely re-worked but I have plans in the future to make it available as a book. I may release it in parts or altogether. It all depends on the size of it at that stage. If not in a book then definitely as an e-book. With all the content and images, publishing into a hard copy would be very expensive. That is unless a publishing company wanted to take me on board. I have had several similar enquiries and am aware that it is a lot of work to read while connected to the internet. It certainly is on my to do list once I have sorted out my new site on wordpress.org. I wish there were three or four of me and then I could really do what I want to do. Alas, tis just me at present. Thank for your patience.




  3. I agree with Brandi, a book would be a wonderful thing!!!
    I always prefer hard copy books to e-books, I don’t have the pacience to read them on the computer screen and my eyes also feel a bit tired because of that. I prefer books in paper, I love to hold them in my hands, to feel them, to flip through the pages and to smell their perfume… If the cost of a REAL and wonderful old-fashioned book will be high, try to publish it into parts/bits. Publish the Major Arcana first and then the Minor Arcana, or vice-versa… but do it. We’ll be very pleased to see your book(s) on the store shelves in the near future. Have a lovely day.


    • Hi Regina,

      My reply has been a long time coming. I have been in college for the last year and unable to attend to my site as I would have liked. I am only now getting to reply to all my comments and messages.

      Thank you for such wonderful support. Yes, a book is in the cards at some stage but I need to organise myself a little more. I do all the writing, site building and everything else that goes in to running a site this large totally on my own. I am just back writing now after finishing exams in college and hope to get back into the swing of things, writing etc, in the next week or so. There is plenty more to come and I will be filming some videos too. Hope you stay on board during the process.




  4. This site is a jewel. One can easily see how much time, love and thought have been put. Thank you for sharing your wisdom and knowledge with others. I turn to this page every day to learn more about my daily cars. When I feel blue, your insights on Tibetan Book of Living and Dying bring solace to my heart. Thanks a million. Blessed be.


    • Esther, what a lovely comment. Calling my site a jewel is amazing and your support will certainly keep me motivated. I have been absent a lot in the last year due to college and exams but am back at my writing desk now and preparing to get back into my tarot work. Just going through all the correspondence before I pick up from where I left off.

      Blessed Be,



    • Hi Julieann. Yes me too. However, it would be rather a large book I think. I am planning on making it available as a download or e-book in the future, so as not to have to be connected to the internet all the time.


  5. Don’t worry, Vivien… Personal life comes first and we understand your priorities. We’ll be here waiting to enjoy whatever it comes, when you feel less busy and ready to get back to your writing/site.
    All the best. Regina


  6. Vivien,
    I just found your site and I am greatful for your knowledge and generosity in sharing it with the world. I came to your site while searching for explanation on the VIII of sword Very impressed with your explanation of her plight. I now can understand this card so much better and I doubt I will forget it. I also loved your biographic information and your photos. Loved the cottage and your description of your pets and and the creatures that visit your home. It looks idyllic. I too share the love of animals and earth as well as your esoteric and spiritual interests, down to the childhood experiences and a genetic illness I discovered couple of years ago. Yes, a bit eerie. I hope your health is better now. I will make some time to take your class as I am learning to read the Tarot). Blessings from across the Atlantic.

    • Hi Haydee,

      Thank you for the lovely message above. Yes, I hope that storytelling might be useful in remembering the meaning of each card. Very hard to recall a list of words or phrases but the basics of story tends to stick.

      My About Page will be updated on my new site as there has been many changes and some new photos to add.

      Genetic families conditions are such a nuisance but one has to keep going. Thank you, I am feeling quite well in myself right now and hope to keep it that way. Fingers crossed. x

      Blessings back to you from across the Atlantic,
