About

I’m Laura Pensar, an artist and writer dedicated to the practice of contemplative cartomancy and all things sortilege. I run the Tarot studio Moth & Candle in Kansas City; a magical boutique in the heart of the midwest. I write and publish books and zines, design card decks, teach classes, and give readings. As a reader I help you see your circumstances from new perspectives which open up the possibilities for you moving forward. As an instructor, I am skilled at breaking down the components of divination practice and making the artform approachable and applicable to everyday life.
.
The current global situation with the pandemic has meant all in-person work including classes, events, festivals, and even studio readings has suddenly halted. While I had been hoping  to shift more of my time to writing new books and creating decks, this sudden change in working conditions means I (like so many others whose work depended on social interaction) am very suddenly left with an uncertain financial future.
.
So I am shifting my focus on the work that I can provide remotely while trying to use this new time to work more on some of my in-process projects, books, and decks that have been waiting in the wings.
.
Here are some of the things happening now through Moth & Candle:
  • Publishing original Tarot, oracle, and playing card decks.
  • Publishing illustrated Tarot and cartomancy study guides, instructional manuals, and books of original spreads.
  • Publishing a Tarot and cartomancy blog with deck and book reviews, historical information, cartomancy instruction, Tarot tips and more.
  • Teaching Tarot and cartomancy classes and workshops online.
  • Working with private clients and growing my work in cartomancy and other soothsaying traditions through email and phone readings until in-person studio visits are once again possible.
.
Cards are works of art, tools for study and practice, games for social bonding, puzzle solving, and fun. Cards are truly for entertainment purposes… entertainment can teach, heal, and move us. What more can you ask from little slips of card-stock that fit in the palm of your hand? Individual works of art we get to hold and interact with in various ways. They are a powerful contemplative tool.
.
I am passionate about the potential for both card games and cartomancy in people’s day-to-day lives. I want to produce books and zines about all things card related. My goals for producing original decks and books are big, but production costs are too. Your support through Patreon will help me  sustain my work during these unusual circumstances and moving forward help support my efforts to research, develop, and increase the publications available on all aspects of cards and cartomancy!
.
What is Patreon?
Patreon is a way for people to help creators fund their art and research. In exchange for your ongoing support you receive special patron-only perks. See the rewards listed on the side!
.
Unlike a Kickstarter or Indiegogo campaign where you donate a larger amount of money to one big project, Patreon is ongoing. It's easy to sign up, you set the monthly donation level to anything you like and get access to the rewards that go along with it. You can change or cancel your pledge amount at any time.

Goals
3 of 25 patrons
I need to hire my web specialist (I already have one I love and prefer to work with... so please don’t message me with suggestions). Once I reach this goal I will be able to hire her to sit down with me and get my website in tip-top shape.
