Ariana's Lipsology, Tarot, Palmistry and Handwriting Analysis NEW - Ariana Entertains with Interactive Virtual Parties

Ariana started entertaining at the MD Renaissance Festival over 39 years ago and she has been a sought after professional/corporate, private, and party reader/entertainer ever since.
Because of the pandemic, Ariana has moved her in-person parties and events online! Using Zoom or other video platforms, Ariana can read your tarot cards at any time. With minimal prep she can read your lip prints (you need lipstick and a piece of paper). With you just holding up your prints to the web-cam she can tell a whole lot about you from your lip print. With a bit more preparation (you send a photo of your palm and back of hand or take a clear picture of your handwriting) Ariana can read your palm or analyze your handwriting.

Ariana's newest reading technique is called Lipsology - the Art of Lip Print Reading. When we can have in-person events again Ariana will be using kiss cards made specifically for your event to collect your guests’ kisses and share their personality traits, energy levels, emotions, and clarify their current situations.  Ariana is one of 9 people world-wide that have been certified in Lipsology and the only one currently in the DC area. WANT UNIQUE ENTERTAINMENT at your party? Want Buzz that will last for a long time to come?  You've found it!  You bring the lips and Ariana brings the lipstick and a great sense of humor to get your guests laughing and wanting more.  With 25 categories of lip prints and over 100 sub-categories, Ariana can amaze you and your guests with her accuracy.  Ideal for bridal showers, birthday parties, corporate entertainment and much more!  Contact Ariana to learn more about this fun and entertaining type of reading. 
Ariana also is a palmist, tarot reader and graphologist (handwriting analysis)

  • What is Lipsology?
    Lipsology is the new and exciting art and science of Lip Print Reading - i.e. assessing personality characteristics, energy levels, and emotions through the interpretation of lip prints. It's based on lip-print characteristics such as size, shape, color intensity or lack of color, fullness, positioning and special markings. The lip prints are made by people putting on lipstick and then 'kissing' or pressing their lips to paper (or kiss cards).

    Ariana uses Lipsology to discover what your guests lip prints have to say about them. Her unique upbeat style and lighthearted approach set a playful and fun tone for your guests. This entertainment is amazing and fun and something you and your guests will never forget. Go here for more information

  • What is Tarot reading?
    Tarot reading is a form of divination (or telling the future and/or the present) by using cards that have pictures on them that show the "archetypes" of life or the basic symbols of our experiences (such as family, home, work, dissapointment, joy, love, etc.). Each reader has their own way of working with the deck. When the reading is done "in person" Ariana has the client pick their own cards in order to have the reading use the clients own energy. When she does phone/virtual readings she "tunes in" to the clients energy and picks the cards for them. She then lays the cards out in a pattern helpful to showing the answers to the clients questions and interprets their meaning using her intuitive gifts.

  • What is Palmistry?
    Palmistry or Chiromancy consists of the practice of evaluating a person's personality, past, present and future health, career, and relationships by interpreting information shown on the hands. Various "lines" ("heart line", "life line", etc.) and mounts show information based on their relative sizes, qualities, and intersections. Readers also examine characteristics of the fingers, fingernails, skin texture and color, shape of the palm, and flexibility of the thumb (and fingers).

  • What is Handwriting Analysis?
    Handwriting analysis, or graphology, is the art and science involved in producing a personality profile of the writer by examining the characteristics, traits and strokes of an individual's handwriting. A trained graphologist can gather quite a bit of information about the writer just from analyzing their handwriting. Besides creating a personality profile, many other things are revealed in your handwriting, such as health issues, morality, past experiences, hidden talents, mental problems and more. The way it works is that your brain guides your hand. Everything you put on paper is a result of the connection between your brain and the motor reflex muscles of your hand. Thus, your handwriting becomes a kind of read-out of your personality or "brain print of who you are right now. Tomorrow, a few things about your handwriting could be different and in a few months, many things could and probably will be different.
