My name is Debra. I am the creatrix and proprietress behind Golden Bee Tarot and Reiki. I am a diviner, clairaudient/clairsentient, witch, reiki master practitioner, teacher and Wild Woman Project circle facilitator. Though I was a deeply sensitive and intuitive child, I didn’t acknowledge or start working with my abilities until I was well into my adult years when I began delving into the world of tarot, astrology and eventually witchcraft. I have continued to hone and enhance my skills through the study of the Usui tradition of reiki, a form of energy healing which balances the chakras (energy centers) of the body. I also continue to challenge myself to expand my abilities through learning a variety of divination practices, including Lenormand and witches runes. This work is my passion. I am deeply grateful to have the opportunity to do something I truly love!
What can you expect when you work with me? My goal is to provide clients with an opportunity to gain deeper wisdom about themselves and their lives. I consider it an honor to help people discover how they can navigate their world from a place of empowerment and expansion. First, I will spend time getting to know you and your specific needs. Building a relationship with my clients is of the utmost importance to me. I want you to feel comfortable and know that you will receive a reading or healing session that is just right for you. Next, I want my clients to understand that our time together will be an interactive experience. I love when my clients take an active role during our time together. Asking questions and explaining what does or doesn’t resonate with you during your reading is encouraged. It helps me to better understand your situation and give you guidance. Last, my desire is to offer my clients a safe space where they can find healing and clarity. I want my clients to walk away from their session with the information they need to make better informed decisions.
I am the resident reader at Broomstick Betty in Bordentown, New Jersey, available for readings on select Saturday afternoons (please check the events section for dates and times). My popular Tarot Tuesday weekly forecasts are also featured on WMGQ Magic 98.3’s website. I also regularly post content on Instagram and Facebook and occasionally take part in public events.
Throughout history, civilization has revered the industrious little bee. The Celts believed that bees brought good luck and were keepers of great wisdom, carrying secret knowledge. The ancient Egyptians saw bees as emblems of power and believed that they delivered the messages of the gods and goddesses. The Greek and Romans viewed the bee as a symbol of the Divine Feminine and her descendants were known as “Mellisae”, powerful priestesses who were inspired to speak the truth. The bible makes reference to a prophetess and ruler called Deborah (the Queen Bee). Her priestesses were known as the “Deborahs” as well. In Appalachia and New England it was tradition to “tell the bees” important news such as births, deaths or marriages so that they could fly and spread the news.
Golden Bee Tarot and Reiki seek to carry on the mission of the magickal bee, providing messages of love, empowerment and truth through the wisdom of the tarot and the healing power of Reiki.
