About Sophrosyne Tarot
My name is Diane and I founded Sophrosyne Tarot. I’ve been reading cards for myself for many years, but had not considered doing it professionally until COVID-19 hit. My work as a programmer tanked in March of 2020 and I looked around for another career which I could pursue from home.
I am in the process of becoming a certified Tarot Reader and am building an online business to help people enrich their lives. I bring 30+ years of business knowledge, both as an entrepreneur and working as a Controller and HR Director for a medium-sized company. I find this experience assists my intuition in my readings.
My experience with Tarot is all about personal responsibility. Just as I only get out of my business what I’m willing to put into it, I only get out of Tarot readings what I’m willing to put into it. The same goes for my clients. I can give you a reading, but it only going to be as effective as the time you’re going to put into any actionable suggestions I may make.
What is Sophrosyne?
Sophrosyne is a Greek term for the qualities of moderation, discretion, and prudence. It manifests as a well-balanced person of excellent character and sound mind. The opposite of sophrosyne is hubris or arrogance and excess.
This is a term I aspire to and the Fool’s Journey (the cards of the Major Tarot) illustrates how to achieve this sublime state.
