Here are some common questions:
Q: How can I book a Tarot session with you?
See my Tarot Sessions page .
Q: How do you do sessions? In person? Phone?
I mainly do sessions by phone, Skype audio or FaceTime audio, Eastern time. My online calendar has my latest availability.
Q: How does a phone reading work?
The majority of my sessions are by phone and as profound for clients as sitting with me in person.
Q: I’m scared. It’s my first time getting a Tarot reading. What’s your advice?
It’s normal to feel a little nervous but I’m a very grounding, friendly presence and do my best to empower my clients. But if it makes you feel better, I always feel a little nervous before my own personal sessions with readers. Trust yourself, do your research on your reader and have faith that what you hear will be for your ulitmate good.
Q: Can a Tarot reading answer long-range questions?
We can ask long-range questions but all we have is the present. It is from the present that we create our future. The cards may give an idea of an outcome but we are in control of our decisions, which influence the cards. I’ve had plenty of personal sessions where an intuitive gave me a time frame and it didn’t happen. Did that make the reading less valid? No, because I chose to hear the message and not restrict it to a ticking clock. Remember, the cards are a mirror reflecting your inner landscape. If you ask about a relationship, please realize that the other person’s decisions are part of the outcome. I’m not big on definitives because I have a healthy respect for our free will.
Q: What if I get the Death card?!
Hate to break it to you, but we’re all going to die. If you’d like to know when, I’m not that reader. The Death card reminds us that our lives are one big transformation. When it appears, it signifies heavy-duty change. Death teaches us that one day we will experience the ultimate transformation — but in this moment, how do we embrace the changes before us?
The Death card is greatly misunderstood. I’m surprised that clients don’t flinch when Devil or Tower appear – some of the darkest and most challenging cards, as they are the shadowy sides of our nature. All of the cards of the Major Arcana are the Great Teachers, symbolizing the natural cycles we must experience if we are to move into higher levels of wisdom.
Q: What do I need to do to prepare?
Be as relaxed as possible. Be open. Breathe. Trust that what you need will come through the session. That’s about it.
Q: How often can I see you?
I ask clients to wait at least two weeks. A session needs time to unfold and teaches you to trust your own intuition. Constantly going to a psychic when in pain builds a dependence on outside wisdom. All of your answers are within. Though I love my work and my clients, I have no interest in being anyone’s guru or psychic crutch. Use your judgment. Readings are especially powerful around Equinox or Solstice.
Q: So…what is it that you do exactly?
I’m a healer. I have profound empathy for the human condition because I have suffered and experienced great loss. Some call me an intuitive or a psychic (I prefer “cosmic cheerleader”). The names really don’t matter as much as being present and fulfiling my dharma.
Q: I feel like I’m psychic/intuitive and want to get into this work. Where do I begin?
Find trusted mentors. Take classes. Study, Meditate. It’s essential that you find lasting ways to stay healthy, whole and grounded while sharing your gifts. Having a mentor is one of the best ways to do so. Read my memoir, The Reluctant Tarot Reader for tips on deepening your practice in the magical arts.
