About Laura Pensar

I’m Laura Pensar, a Tarot card reader, artist, and writer based in Kansas City. I run the Tarot studio Moth & Candle in Kansas City; a magical boutique in the heart of the midwest.
.
I’m a professional Tarot reader and have been studying Tarot and working with the cards since I was 12 years old. I received my master’s degree in printmaking and am naturally drawn to the history of playing card design. Both Tarot and illustration have been obsessions of mine since I was a child and I am so incredibly lucky to be able to promote cartomancy through my Moth & Candle studio!
.
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.
  • Developing, designing, and producing custom Tarot supplies. (The Pixie Dust deck cleansing powder is my current favorite!)
  • Teaching Tarot and cartomancy classes and workshops and hosting historical playing card game nights.
  • Working with private clients and growing my work in cartomancy and other soothsaying traditions.
  • Collaborating with some of the best readers in Kansas City.
.
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.
.
I am incredibly lucky to be able to do the work that I do. 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. Imagine “According to Hoyle” if it gave equal ink to card history and divination traditions as it did to game rules!
.
My goals for producing original decks and books are big, but production costs are too. Your support through Patreon will help me 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
1 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.
