T. Susan Chang bought her first tarot deck in New York, where she moonlighted as a reader while working in academic publishing. After leaving the city, she took her practice underground for many years, re-surfacing in 2015 and taking up the systematic study of esoteric correspondences in tarot. Along with deck creator Mel Meleen, Susie hosts the Fortune's Wheelhouse esoteric tarot podcast, which explores imagery and symbolism in the Rider-Waite-Smith and Thoth decks. She is the creator of the Arcana Case® for tarot decks, which can be found at www.etsy.com/shop/tarotista, along with her line of esoteric perfumes. She reads tarot weekly at the Inspirit Crystal shop in Northampton, Massachusetts, and is developing an online tarot course, which will be offered through her website, www.tsusanchang.com. Her interest in tarot is wide-ranging and passionate, and has included: setting up 78 Spotify playlists for those interested in card-appropriate music, memorizing astrological correspondences for the minor arcana while swimming laps, writing tarot haiku and spells, and maintaining a sprawling Card-of-the-Day-tracking database (complete with elemental, astrological, and kabbalistical frequency and percentage pie charts). She attempts to learn Hebrew approximately once every 15 months and has been known to spontaneously arrange her pancakes into a Tree of Life formation. When not engaged in tarot-adjacent activity, she teaches writing at Smith College and Bay Path University, and writes occasionally about food and cookbooks. She lives in western New England with her husband, two children, and a variable number of chickens.
