No. While tarot card readings are generally forward-looking, I will not tell you the name of your future spouse, who will win a sporting event, or who the next president will be. What I can do is help you to unlock the answers inside you regarding paths in life you are taking, choices you are making, and decisions you are considering. Why give away your power of free will to someone else when you can harness your own power to embrace and own your life's journey!
2) Will a tarot reading predict death or scary things?
No. There are no bad or good cards, and in fact, some of the scarier-looking cards can actually herald the most positive change. Each card is interpreted specifically for you and your particular question. I do not use stock or canned interpretations, but rather look at each card chosen in the context of your reading.
3) Can you get an accurate reading for me if I'm on the other side of the world and just talking to you over Skype or phone?
Yes! Actually, readings done over the phone and Skype can sometimes be even more accurate than if you were to pick the cards yourself. Sometimes, our conscious minds override the subconscious and we fear choosing particular cards. Over the phone, I am tapping into your energy and choosing cards on your behalf without fear of second-guessing which cards to pick. During a phone or Skype tarot reading, I act as the unbiased instrument of your subconscious.
4) Will I get a copy of the reading afterwards?
You will receive a recording of the call as an Mp3 file via e-mail. You will also receive a summary sheet of everything discussed, as well as a photo of the final tarot card layout.
5) OK, I've booked a reading. What can I do before the reading?
The best thing you can do is to think about the question you really want to ask. Ideal questions do not have "yes" or "no" answers and are not about someone else. Before we start the reading, we will spend some time discussing your question to make it as clear as possible. The clearer the question, the clearer the answer.
6) During the reading, will I get to participate?
Absolutely! A tarot reading is an interactive process. We will discuss each card as it appears in the layout. Your insights are as important as mine.
7) Can I just do a tarot reading on myself?
While you can certainly use tarot in your everyday life, it helps to have an outsider with no bias interpret a reading on your behalf. Our conscious minds can talk over the subconscious and rationalize anything. This makes for a difficult reading when you are trying to do one for yourself.
8) How often do you recommend getting a reading?
I do not recommend getting a reading more than every 3 months as it can muddle the initial reading and lead to confusion. This also gives you time for the reading to play itself out.
9) Over phone or Skype, do I need to have a tarot deck with me when you are doing the reading?
No. During the reading, you can either look up the chosen cards on the internet so we can review them together, or I can describe them to you over the phone. With Skype, you can see the cards I am choosing for you on the video call.
10) Do you do tarot readings for events?
Absolutely! I have conducted readings at corporate events, fundraisers, holiday parties and more throughout the area. Event readings tend to be shorter (5-7 minutes per person) to allow for the maximum number of people to be read. I would just need an area at the event that is quiet enough for guests to hear their readings.
