I take appointment and walk-in clients on Saturdays at Catland Books, the cutest little witch shop in Bushwick, Brooklyn.
Many of Haylin Belay's tarot clients consider themselves skeptics... and some days, she does, too. But after years of personal practice, the cards have reliably provided insight and guidance on topics both energetic and mundane - and as Haylin is fond of saying, "it doesn't matter if it's real, as long as it's true." Her empathetic reading style, based firmly in the intuition and personal power of the seeker, demystifies the Tarot and is a great fit for first-timers, skeptical seekers, and beginner readers.
Unlike other professional tarot readers, Haylin works less as a medium, psychic, or spiritual channel, and more as a "tarot doula"; her primary role is to hold space and provide insight into the seeker's individual exploration of their personal power. To that end, seekers are encouraged to touch and manipulate the cards for a truly self-guided experience. Her practice checks and challenges the dogmatic, racist, gender essentialist, and hierarchical barriers to entry that have historically made the craft intimidating or unappealing to potential practitioners. Seekers will leave with clarity about the path ahead and insight into the technology of Tarot.
