Scroll down to read the Satanic Tarot

The Satanic Tarot is a condensation of over 15 years' worth of my personal and professional experiences as a fortune-teller into a single volume composed of five parts. What follows is the unvarnished truth, and although you may not agree with what I have to say, I promise that every word of it is based on reality. You'll find no theory in the pages that follow, only the ripened fruit of practical application. When I tell you who I am and show you what I do, you should not only believe me but also ask yourself who you are and look at what you do. You might not like what you see, but in the words of Frank Herbert, "The unclouded eye was better, no matter what it saw."
