I’m Hilary Parry Haggerty, and I’m a tarot reader. I believe in interactivity, tough love, and a no-nonsense approach. I do tell it like it is. I am simply the girl next door... that reads tarot.

You wouldn’t make a major decision in your life without consulting a few of your trusted friends for advice, would you? Probably not. Sometimes you need someone with more objectivity. I offer that objectivity, and then some, with my tarot readings.

I am based out of Westchester County, New York. If you would like an in-person reading with me, you need to be in the Westchester area, too. For in-person readings, I do not have a home office (yes, I make housecalls!) and readings are by appointment only. If you are not in the area, readings are also available through phone, Skype, and e-mail. Isn't technology wonderful?

Want to know more about me? See my About Me page.

I read tarot like I write. And where I write about tarot is at my tarot blog.

Any lingering questions? The best way to reach me is via e-mail.

Not So Virtue-ous: The Online Uproar About Doreen Virtue

So the big scoop in the tarot world last week is eclipse-related: eclipses are known for shaking things up and sudden about-faces. In true big-ass eclipse fashion, Doreen Virtue, known primarily for her Angel Oracles and tarot decks, very publicly DENOUNCED tarot this week (she also denounced fairies, mermaids, goddesses, etc.).

A little background information: Whenever a card reader says that they are a Certified Angel Card Reader, this is likely to mean that they studied through one of Doreen Virtue’s online courses, gaining more advance training in how to read the Angel Cards.

As for me, I’m not an Angel Card reader. I’ve just never been drawn to those kinds of decks (these are the ones I am drawn to). I’m not saying that I don’t believe in angelic energy or symbolism… in fact there have been many times I have seen such symbols and connected with them in my tarot work, namely seeing much Archangel Michael energy in the Swords suit of Ciro Marchetti’s Legacy of the Divine tarot deck.

Going on the record here: Doreen Virtue’s work has never spoken to me personally. This is not to say that the people that DO follow her work, buy her decks, or study with her online, aren’t getting something meaningful or profound: to each their own. But me? Meh. Not a fan.Continue Reading

Weekly Round-Up: Big Ass Solar Eclipse Edition









On select Fridays, I’ll be posting a few links that are currently rocking my world. Today’s link love edition on a Monday comes to you courtesy of the solar eclipse!

I wrote about When Hollywood Gets Psychic Abilities Right last week. Clearly, I love movies… it’s one of my favorite activities! I watched the movie Passengers last month when it was on one of the movie channels, and have a love/hate relationship with it. It inspired my new haircut and color (thanks JLaw!), but I also realize it’s a pretty terrible movie with a lot of grievous sins and potholes you could drive that proverbial truck through. CinemaSins agrees with me. Watch their video Everything Wrong with Passengers in 16 Minutes or Less. [The score is pretty beautiful though….]



Melissa Cassera is a doll and added 4 BONUS LESSONS to her Clicksanity course! Right now, it’s just $97 to enroll in Clicksanity, but the price jumps to $249 on August 25th… get in there at the reduced rate. It would be foolish not to! [If there was an affiliate link for Clicksanity, I would be jockin’ it… this course really helped breathe new life into my newsletters!]

When Hollywood Gets Psychic Abilities Right

Yeah, Hollywood tends to get the occult wrong 85% of the time. But for once, I’m going against my baser instinct of pessimism and disgust of my fellow man, and honoring those movies and TV shows that got psychic abilities more or less right in their depiction.

***SPOILER ALERT!*** Be careful about reading this post, as some of it may contain spoilers for movies or tv shows I’m citing.
