Tarot Reading with Clients

Tarot Clients

Every tarot reader is different. We fall into umbrella categories like intuitive readers, empathic readers, “psychic” readers etc., but each tarot reader you meet will have a different style and approach to their practice. It’s the same with clients. You may ask the same question as the person that just left my table, but your approach to the cards, and me, will be different. Your story...

Tarot Myths Debunked

There are many myths that surround tarot and tarot reading. Tarot has become more popular and mainstream, but superstitions persist.

Daily Draw: Page of Swords- Energy, Ambition, Ideas

What do I need to know or focus on today? The page of swords is a court card and court cards can be difficult for readers to interpret when they first start out.

Wholeness

The Parts Abandoned A few months ago, my therapist sent out an email blast informing all clients about changes to the therapy group’s structure and management.

I thought it was brilliant, but the part that stood out to me said, “wholeness feels like embracing the parts...

The Astrology For those out of touch with moon phases, the new moon is when the sun and moon are aligned which is why we can’t see the moon in the night sky.
