T. Susan Chang
T. Susan Chang bought her first tarot deck at a Barnes & Noble in New York, where she moonlighted as a reader while working in academic publishing. After leaving the city, she took her practice underground for many years, re-surfacing in 2015 and taking up the systematic study of esoteric correspondences in tarot.
- Along with deck creator Mel Meleen, Susie hosts the Fortune’s Wheelhouse esoteric tarot podcast, which explores imagery and symbolism in the Rider-Waite-Smith and Thoth decks.
- She is the creator of the Arcana Case® for tarot decks, which can be found on her Etsy page, along with her line of esoteric perfumes.
- She reads tarot in person at the Inspirit Crystal shop in Northampton, Massachusetts
- Her online Tarot course, “The Living Tarot,” course can be found on her website.
- She is the author of A Spoonful of Promises (2011), Tarot Correspondences: Ancient Secrets for Everyday Readers (2018), 36 Secrets: A Decanic Journey through the Minor Arcana of the Tarot (2021), and co-author of Tarot Deciphered: Decoding Esoteric Symbolism in Modern Tarot (2021).
- She collaborates with Jack Grayle on the online course Godsong: 365 Days of Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey.
Her interest in tarot is wide-ranging and passionate, and has included:
- Setting up 78 Spotify playlists for those interested in card-appropriate music
- memorizing astrological correspondences for the minor arcana while swimming laps
- writing tarot haiku and spells
- maintaining a sprawling Card-of-the-Day-tracking database (complete with elemental, astrological, and kabbalistical frequency and percentage pie charts).
When not engaged in tarot-adjacent activity, she teaches writing at Smith College, and writes occasionally about food and cookbooks. She lives in western New England with her husband, two children, and a variable number of chickens.
