Born under the sign of Gemini many moons ago, Oephebia is a French psychic tarot reader and tarot teacher, living in London (South London – Clapham). She came to live in the UK in 1994 when she married her English musician husband. They share their home with two rescued Persian cats aka the kitty monsters.
Oephebia has shown a keen interest in the tarot and spirituality since her mid-teens and developed her skills in her early twenties by doing readings in her native France. She has been reading the tarot professionally in the UK since 1996.
Her skills and talent reside in her down to earth attitude and her compassion in helping people to reach their potential and to help them when it is needed. She often says that she is a mere “translator” of the language of the Tarot.
She has read the tarot in a wide variety of environments, from exhibitions, festivals, psychic fairs, events, charity balls, private parties, telephone lines, media events with celebrities, to TV (she was a resident psychic/presenter for 2 years on live shows on Sky, has appeared on Current TV, Bravo TV and diverse magazines and newspapers) and of course her private practice.
Oephebia is also a tarot teacher as she believes everybody has basic intuition (gut feelings) and combined with practice, they can develop their dormant psychic abilities. She has taught the Awakening Tarot course in South London since 2002 and has helped hundreds of people on the path of self development.
She also has a small blog concerning the tarot and other spiritual subjects to share her passion of the unseen. Oephebia is designing her own tarot pack (albeit at a sloth’s pace) when she has time to unwind.
Apart from the tarot, Oephebia has another big passion: animals.
She is a professional animal communicator and animal healer, and a qualified Bach Flowers Practitioner for Animals.
She has a soft spot for the wild, and has been privileged to work with a plethora of animals, from dogs to cats, parrots to hippos, bears, vultures and bats to bees, possums, dolphins, whales, monkeys, elephants and more.
She has a strong interest in marine life and created her own group of conservationists and spiritual activists to help the ocean on a spiritual level, but also to educate people on the issues facing our oceans today. Her sister website is Mermaids 4 Cetaceans.
