Hi, I’m Ricardo and I am the creator behind the Tarot Magician channel and The Tarot Magician’s Emporium on YouTube.
I have loved the Tarot my entire life! I was born in Havana, Cuba, and migrated to the United States with my mother when I was five years old. She was a scared woman during those times. She arrived in Miami, FL alone, except for a small child at her side, and found herself in a country she did not understand with a language she did not speak.
A few months after our arrival, my mother sought guidance from a pair of twins who lived down the block from us. The Twins were mediums and their preferred tool, the Tarot. They told my mother things that set her on a path to prosperity and happiness. That was over 22 years ago and I’ve never forgotten the impact that day had on the rest of our lives.
To me, the Tarot is the ultimate tool for anyone seeking direction and guidance in life. The tarot offers us the opportunity to explore the depths of the human condition. If mastered and directed correctly, they will bring transformation for a better life.
The Tarot has been a guiding light on this wonderful and absurd journey we call life. I created this website and YouTube channel in hopes of sharing the wisdom and guidance the tarot provides.

My Journey to Tarot
Your first encounter with the Tarot is magical. If you are meant to be a Tarot reader, oftentimes you are drawn to them like Harry Potter picking up his destined wand for the first time.
I’ve always been drawn to magic, fantasy, and the occult. Growing up, I loved Bewitched, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Harry Potter, and any other witchy or magical media I could get my hands on. As a teenager, I remember going to the library and coming home with stacks of books about astrology and numerology and any other spiritual topic I could find. I was hungry for it.
At the same time, though, there was fear. Growing up I was told these were the tools of the devil. So a few months after purchasing my first Tarot deck at the age of 19, I ended up throwing them out. I let fear rule me. But still, I could not keep away. The Tarot kept calling to me. It all called to me – the magic, the mystery.
A few years ago, after deciding I no longer wanted to follow the teachings of the Christian church I embraced the call of the cards. Little did I know that embracing Tarot would lead to this wonderful YouTube channel we have created.
The Tarot has helped us immensely on our journey. It has provided guidance and insight, encouraging us to examine ourselves and what we truly want in life – what we came to this Earth to do.
As a writer for this blog, my mission is to help you find healing, empowerment, and transformation that brings about peace, joy, and fulfillment in your mind, body, and soul.
