Arwen began reading the Tarot in 1980 when a friend handed her the Thoth deck. She didn’t really like the Thoth deck then (her opinion has changed since) so moved on to the Herbal Tarot which she still has in her collection of over 150 Tarot and Oracle decks.

Her fascination with this introspective divination system grew (right along with her bookstore bill.) She began to read for friends in 1980. What she learned surprised her and her friends as she began to open up on intuitively. Her friends began referring their friends to her and Arwen finally began to read for people she didn’t know.

The online side of Tarot By Arwen was launched in 2002. She became the president of the American Tarot Association in 2007. As of 2014, she no longer holds this role. She felt seven years was enough!

One of her passions is helping writers write. As Marilu Mann, she has 9 books published as of 2013 with 2 more under contract (10/2013.)

Her interests are very eclectic but her approach to the Tarot is on a Jungian basis. Arwen sees the Tarot as a tool to help see things that need to be seen. Rather than doing strictly divination-based readings, Arwen attempts to deliver readings that gently guide you to taking charge of your own life and making your own decisions. Her goal is to help you find your joy and keep it.

She is fond of comparing the Tarot to looking at a road map. “If the map says bridge out ahead, what fool is going to keep driving?” is something her clients know by heart. Self-responsibility is the key to getting the most from a reading with Arwen.

When you sit down with Arwen in person or via Skype, you can expect to laugh and maybe cry. Her compassionate readings will help you see things that you need to embrace as well as things you need to work on. Don’t forget you can also have Arwen liven up a party as well.
