Actor, Alexandra Carmona, Gained A Following On TikTok For Her Tarot Card Readings
Please introduce yourself, what you do, why you do it, and what you want people to know about you.
I am a tarot reader who’s gained a following on TikTok, and have been doing tarot for two years now. I started doing tarot because of something that I experienced and as a tarot reader with a platform I always strive to inspire my followers and let them know that they’re not alone.
What qualities make you different and unique from everyone else in the industry?
The qualities that make me different and unique from everyone else in the industry is that not all my readings are good ones. Sometimes I do readings where I know what I’m about to say is gonna be hard to hear but I say it anyway because I know it’s important.
I also make sure to let my followers know that tarot is not for everyone and I actually don’t encourage everyone to practice tarot because it’s truly something that cannot be taken in just for fun. It’s an important practice that can either be really inspiring but also really scary for those who don’t know what they are doing
Describe THAT moment when you realized you wanted to do what you do now. Who did you tell first? What has it been like since that moment?
Something happened to me that really effected my life, and caused me to second guess my whole existence.
It may seem dramatic to some people but in August of 2019 my cat that I had for 15 years was diagnosed with FIV and ended up growing very sick to the point where she couldn’t eat because her throat was covered in tumors that were cutting her airways, so I had to put her down and after she passed I felt so lost.
I realized that I identified myself as her caregiver my whole life, and when she was gone I had no sense of identity. I lost myself but as time passed, through her loss I slowly began to find myself again. I realized that doing tarot is another purpose of mine because I never want anyone to feel as lost and defeated as I did.
So I want to do everything I can to make sure people get the answer they deserve so that they don’t have to feel lost or confused.
I remember telling my friend, Briana Munoz first. Because she was also very spiritual and after that I just told everyone, and I was 100% supported.
And ever since I started tarot I’ve just never looked back. I finally took big steps into my acting career and now I’m a part a professional class that I love, and I’m working in movies and commercials, and it’s all because of tarot, truly.
What has been the biggest challenge you’ve had to face and how did you overcome it?
The biggest challenge I had to face was having to deal with hate and doubt. I knew that people were going to tell me I was doing the devils work, and that I was scamming for their money and it’s hard to hear that from people but I told myself that when the time came, I’d just have to put my foot forward and stand up to myself, because no matter what.
These people don’t know me. They don’t know that I almost was never going to start a tarot career because I didn’t want people to see me as a greedy person who charged money for readings. I wanted to be “different” but now I realize that doing tarot is a huge privilege for me. I love that I get to help people. So at the end of the day, the love I get from my happy clients makes the hate worth it.
If you had to pick the TOP 3 people you’d want to meet that could take your career (or business) to the next level…who would those 3 people be?
I am also an actor, and I’ve met so many people that have helped me take my acting career farther which I’m grateful for, but I would love to meet,
