Private Tarot Readings
Private Tarot Readings
Book a private reading with me! First, I work with you to select a deck. You pick the one that calls to you. I then do the reading from the deck you choose. Second, I walk you through a short process to pull the cards. I lay out the cards in front of me. Sometimes I pull an extra card. I usually take a minute to look at what's in front of me. Third, I give you your reading. At the end, I'll send you a photo of the cards I pulled for you to keep.
At the end, you are welcome to tell me what you thought or ask questions. I do not ask you to tell me what the reading is for at the beginning. In fact, I prefer to not know anything about the person I'm reading for! I do enjoy getting to hear the impact the reading had on you if you are willing to share, and I enjoy discussing your reading further in relationship to whatever you choose to share with me.
MY APPROACH TO TAROT
I started reading tarot as a kid—I think I was 9. I don't believe tarot cards are magical, evil or capable of revealing the future. I do think they can help you discover new angles to a problem, or help you see another side to things, or help you self-identify patterns of behavior. They are a dose of old medicine, in modern day.
Let me explain. Tarot cards are OLD. The first generally accepted usage of tarot cards dates back to the 1400s. Psychology dates back to ancient Greece and was 'officially' formed as its own field separate from philosophy in 1879. Tarot cards, from my viewpoint, kind of served as the first psychologists. Here's what I mean by that—a good psychologist or counselor will work to help YOU uncover patterns and insights into YOUR own life. That's the same function tarot readings can have—they are a tool to help you unearth what's hidden, a tool for you to discover things within yourself. While tarot cards often have a 'mystical' association, they really are just a tool to help you uncover what might be hidden.
I will also say this—a reading can feel particularly pinpointed sometimes. This is good. It means there's something there you need to consider or ponder. And, for what it's worth, I also do believe in magic—the magic of learning new things, connecting with people and discovering new parts of yourself.
I have read tarot for 20 years + now. I have more than a dozen decks I read from regularly. I've studied the symbolism and I'm honored to be able to translate this very old skill into modern day. My process is unique and developed out of my years reading for people and from my work with death and dying.
