About Ms. Joyce Tarot


My name is Adriene (A.D.) Joyce. I’m a spiritual consultant and poet with a B.A. in English literature.

I was 7 years old when I started to develop an interest in psychic phenomenon and astrology (I’m a Taurus Sun and Moon/Cancer Rising). Ever since, I have deeply explored and embrace many different modalities of religion and spirituality. However, I don’t follow any one school of thought to the exclusion of others. I believe there is something to be learned from every viewpoint.

But most importantly,  I realize that there is nothing more spiritual than experiencing the joys and pain that life brings. And in that regard, I have lived a lot of life.

I grew up in a dysfunctional family that involved alcoholism and sexual abuse. I’ve lived in urban areas and in the suburbs. I’ve attended underfunded inner city schools, top tier elementary and secondary schools, as well as the well-regarded Rutgers University. I’ve been a stay-at-home mom, an hourly wage worker, a well-paid editor of a magazine, and an independent contractor. I know what it’s like to be laid off from a job. I have children; I have terminated pregnancies. I lived the single life, had a long-standing marriage, and have been divorced now for many years. I’ve also done lots and lots of spiritual work to process it all and to integrate shadow and light.

There is so much more. But the point is this: It is the wisdom gained through my lived experiences—both joyful and challenging—that adds depth to each reading I do for you.

With my strong intuition and keen observational skills, I use the Tarot as a tool to help me interpret the messages coming from the Universe. When I do a reading for you, you add your dynamic energy to the mix when you focus on your question.

The Tarot is never the last word on what will happen. It is merely a snapshot of the energy around us as it exists at the moment. As humans, we have the free will to change the course of the future by our actions, if we choose to.

If there is any one message I would like to share, it’s that each and every one of you has the power to shape your destiny. We all have access to universal wisdom. All we have to do is open our hearts and listen.
