Author Bio: Kiren Rai has regularly used the Tarot as a tool for exploration ad divination and has done readings for a group of friends, who value her insights and look to her for a fresh understanding of situation. Fascinated by Tarot symbology, she has explored various decks and found esoteric similarities in the symbols used in all decks.
