Once Upon a Tarot readings by Dan Almekinder logo
readings by Dan Almekinder

Dan's lifelong fascination with Tarot emerged from a deep desire to figure out life's twists and turns and explore the depths of human connections.

For over a decade, Dan taught high school and college students, encouraging them to trust their instincts and face challenges with clarity and critical thinking.

Recognizing a glaring need for emotional support in New York City’s real estate scene, Dan confidently made his way into the field with a clear intention in mind - to ease the stress and anxiety experienced by both buyers and sellers in what can often be an overwhelming process.  

His journey then led him into the legal field where he fine-tuned his ability to understand and interpret human reactions and behaviors.
