Tarot is the West’s most subtly beautiful divinatory method, working through archetypal images depicting universal life experiences.
Diana Taylor’s interest in Tarot was sparked at the age of 15, when she received a deck as a birthday present from friends. Her interest in esoteric subjects and comparative religion grew over the next decade, following travels in Sri Lanka, Mongolia, Malaysia, China and studies in Europe. Her professional life developed in multinational corporate roles in international relations, luxury goods, software, biofuels, and finance. From 1995 she studied Tarot in London and occasionally read for the public in Covent Garden Market. For the next ten years or so, while carrying out her corporate work life, Diana continued to study intensively, and gradually became an acknowledged expert at the art.
Diana’s abilities and knowledge took her to a level where she is a respected practitioner. In 2008 she was headhunted by the eminent Treadwell’s Bookshop of London, and after sixteen years of corporate multinational professional life, Diana now works full time as a Tarot consultant and teacher.
Diana’s mother’s family are from the Philippines, and this side of her family are hereditary stewards of a holy well attached to a famed Catholic basilica outside Manila, built on a pre-Christian site. For centuries her family have performed this role, and Diana inherits this calling to community service as a means of connecting with the divine, expressing it in her work in Tarot.
Committed to ongoing professional development, she attends retreats annually with international Tarot experts, and has studied and corresponds with leading Tarot teachers such as Rachel Pollack, Lon Milo DuQuette, Amber Jayanti, and Marcus Katz. She is active in London's esoteric community, and networks regularly with other Tarot practitioners around the world. She has a strong clientele amongst corporate executives and City professionals -- a world she knows well from her former professional life, and whose challenges she appreciates. Being both Australian and Filipina, and partly educated in France, Diana has many devoted clients among expatriates and people who negotiate cross-cultural family dynamics. These clients treasure her international perspective. Diana has also served as a Tarot consultant and special artist in a major motion picture, released in September 2012, as well as for a new TV documentary series, screened worldwide from January 2013. Diana speaks excellent French and conversational Italian, German, Russian and Japanese, though readings are always in English.
Her readings bring clarity about future trends and their influence, and with this, she encourages you to seize your opportunities and embrace a new perspective – to find how to make the most of your life. Her wide life experience is especially valued by those who come to her.
