Spotlight On: Casey Zabala of Wanderer's Tarot
We've been dying to host (and take!) an introductory tarot class for some time now, and couldn't be more excited to bring next week's Going Inward: Tarot As a Tool for Self Discovery workshop to our community. As we gear up for this introductory tarot class, we are so pleased to introduce our reader, teacher and Kismet maven, Casey Zabala of Wanderer's Tarot. Scroll down to get to know Casey, and learn all about why she feels called to this work.
How did you first start hosting tarot workshops?
I began teaching tarot after I self-published my tarot deck, Wanderer’s Tarot in 2016. The tarot has been a consistent healing and self-care tool for me since I was 13 years old, and I am inspired to teach others how to use the tarot as a personal healing practice.
Why do you feel called to this work?
My tarot and divination practice has been a major part of the way I navigate the world since my teenage years. When I met my first tarot deck, it unlocked an intuitive understanding within me. I am truly “called” to this work. The realm of symbols speaks through me fluidly, as an artist and a visual thinker, and after creating Wanderer’s Tarot, I felt it was time to step into the next phase of my work with the tarot, as a teacher and mentor for others.
What are your sun, moon and rising signs? Do any of your attributes relate directly back to these signs?
I am a Leo sun, Aquarius moon, and Taurus rising. I have a very balanced astrological chart, which reflects outwardly in my grounded disposition. As a Leo, I am called to share my knowledge in an authentic and artistic way, and my Aquarius moon pulls me more towards radical thinking and collective healing work.
Where are you from originally?
I was born in San Francisco, and raised here until my high school years, which I spent in Ojai, CA. Although I’ve traveled and lived all over the United States, my true love is California.
What are your favorite high-vibe activities?
I love spending time outdoors, hiking, swimming, and camping (definitely my Taurus rising shining through!) Connecting with the natural world is a big part of my spiritual practice, as a hedgewitch, aspiring herbalist, and lover of faeries. I’m also a big fan of curling up with a cup of tea and a good book.
What can our Kismet community expect from our July workshop with you?
My workshops allow attendees to get clarity on their individual paths. Not only will you learn about the basic structure of the tarot, but you will begin to understand how to use your tarot deck for self-discovery and self-care. My workshop attendees usually come away with a piece of insight about their spiritual journey, and their personal growth.
