This year, many tarot readers have transitioned online in response to pandemic regulations and health precautions.
Which has left many people wondering, "Do tarot readings still ‘work’ over the phone or online?”
The short answer is: OF COURSE!
I have been doing readings on Zoom since 2015 and let me tell you: Where or how your reading is delivered has no bearing on its accuracy or effectiveness.
Not only do I know this from my job as a reader, but also as a client. Most of the readers and intuitives I have worked with have been by distance.
When booking a reading, remember:
♦A reader’s skill is what matters - and that has nothing to do with the vehicle you are using to commutate with them;
♦ Distance readings make it possible to work with people all over the world, so you are not limited by geography when it comes to choice;
♦ You don’t have to touch or physically choose your tarot cards for them to “work” for you....
It is my belief that tarot is for everyone, and that it can be beneficial in many situations when used appropriately.
Like any tool, it will only work she applied with the proper skill and intention.
If you are getting a tarot reading, your emotional and intellectual perspective will also play a role in how that reading goes. It’s important to be in an open state of mind, ready to receive information.
I have had clients in the past who were clearly not ready for tarot and sometimes, I have had to cut sessions short because querents were so nervous or scared.
As a tarot reader, I won’t always know where you are at emotionally when you book an appointment. It is up to you to know whether you are ready and willing to give tarot a try.
Here are 3 signs you might not be ready for a reading:
1. You have immense guilt about it, to the point where you can’t enjoy your reading. I once had a client break down in tears because they felt like they were going against their religion...
One of the most common questions I get from other tarot readers is, “Do you read reversals?”
It comes up whenever I teach a class, whether it’s to a group of beginners or advanced readers.
(And for anyone not familiar with reversals, it’s when a card is upside down in a reading.)
I don’t read reversals – but I used to. I picked up the technique when I was studying tarot, and used it regularly by the time I started reading tarot professionally.
But I gradually stopped reading reversals.
Why? It’s not because they don’t work – they do (if you’re clear and consistent in how you’re using them).
The reason reversals dropped out of my tarot practice is that I just didn’t need them anymore. I had started to develop new styles of card reading and the way I was working with tarot didn’t require reversals anymore.
I started to see that the way I was looking at a reversed card – whether it was a challenge,...
Whenever there’s change in the air, such as talk of important astrological transits, it’s normal to wonder: “How will this affect me?”
We often turn to tarot, astrology and other divinations to predict what’s around the corner. It’s not unusual to worry about whether you are making the wrong decision, or to worry about where your future is headed.
I find that whether you’re clear on your own direction, or you’re still trying to figure out your life’s path, uncertainty will always be a companion to some degree.
One of the main reasons why we turn to divinatory tools like tarot and astrology is because we want certainty, clarity and confidence in what we are doing.
Knowing how things will turn out can help alleviate some of the stress of the unknown.
After all, wouldn’t you go ahead and head back to school, start that business, or write that book if you knew for sure that you would be successful?
It would also be so much...
Staying healthy as a tarot reader can be tricky, especially if you do a lot of in-person work at parties, events, or one-on-one.
A lot of us readers are often working in public spaces like stores, coffee shops or fairs.
Here's what I do to stay healthy when I'm working out in the public.
