Kasey Robinson has been reading tarot cards for nearly a decade—and she’s just 22 years old. Originally from a small town in Pennsylvania, Robinson recalls knowing from an early age that she was gifted with “second sight.” Her first revelation occurred while getting ready for church one morning. She had a vision that a woman needed her help. On the way home from church, Robinson saw an old woman lying in a heap in the snow and told her parents to pull over. They found that the woman had sprained her ankle and may have frozen to death had she not been helped. Looking back, Robinson declares that moment as a confirmation to herself that she needed to help people spiritually. After graduating last year with a bachelor’s degree in fine arts from Tufts University and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Robinson moved to the West Coast with her also-spiritual boyfriend last summer after a dream that urged her to take her skills to the Chico area. Since moving to Chico, Robinson has continued reading into the spiritual world. Those interested in a tarot reading can call Robinson at (561) 445-2191.
How has Chico taken to your tarot readings?
There are a lot of tarot readers in the area, so it’s very cool. I just responded to an ad to do a very serious house clearing. What I like about Chico is there’s not too many problems, people are already pretty down with the energy healings and vibes. I think what might be missing is the old-school ritual and history of tarot readings, if that makes sense.
What do you see in the future for your tarot-reading business?
I’d love to find a way to open a shop. I had an idea to have like, black magic on one side and white magic on the other side, with black and white spiraling in the middle of the ground, so everyone feels welcome. I’d like to help as many people as I can through readings. I’m also a reiki practitioner, which involves hands-on, energy-healing work. The store would be so jam-packed, every herb you can imagine, every medicine, every statue; if it makes some people afraid, I don’t care!
What advice do you have for skeptics or doubters?
Well, I’m a skeptic myself. I like to tell people that it’s about remembering your own power, your own personal powers and desires.
