Q: What do you charge for Tarot readings?
A: My fee for a 10 minute Zoom, Skype or Phone reading is $26.00 and is non-refundable. (Credit card only, please.) If you would like a longer reading, I book additional time in 10 minute increments. Contact me to book a Tarot reading when you're ready to get some guidance and peace of mind.
Q: How long is a typical reading?
A: My readings are normally 10 minutes long. I usually don't have to go over ten minutes because I can cover a lot of ground in that amount of time - my readings are practical, pragmatic and straightforward. I don't have any ceremonies to do before the reading. I don't add any fluff or unnecessary dialogue to my readings. I just put the cards on the table and get straight to the point, reading and conveying the exact story or message I see for you in the cards.
I will not ask you any questions and you don’t have to tell me anything at all before the reading. If you choose to reveal any details about your issue or situation, however, please tell me no more than is absolutely necessary. Your discussion will be on the clock and may lengthen the time you need for the reading.
Q: How do I pay for the reading?
A: I'll send you a Square Invoice to pay for the reading. Click here to see how the payment and the reading itself work.
Q: What kind of readings do you perform?
A: I do several different types of readings. You can see a list of the readings I do and in the Types of Readings page.
Q: Can I ask for a longer reading?
A: Certainly! Although I usually don't have to go over ten minutes, I know some clients might want to go longer because they get very involved in the reading results and may need more time to follow up on certain aspects of the reading. Other clients may be interested in digging deeper into their given situation or issue and would like more time to be able to do that.
Q: Do you perform your readings intuitively?
A: Yes, I intuitively read the cards to interpret the message they present. Although I have a great knowledge of the commonly held core meanings and derivative meanings of the cards, I rely on my intuition and the cards relative contexts and positions within the spread to determine what they mean at that point in time.
Q: Do you predict the future?
A: No, I don't do predictions. Instead, I do forecasts. They're much better and make you freer to affect the outcome of a given situation or issue. I always like looking at options and possibilities for the future – much better for you and more actionable on your part. I highly recommend you read my article Tarot and the Future: Predicting vs. Forecasting so you can get my complete take on this before your reading.
Q: Do you answer Yes/No questions?
A: No, I don't answer “Yes/No” questions. By its very nature, this is a very limiting, narrow type of question. It’s been my experience during my long career as a Tarot reader that it's far better to ask for the outlook of a given situation or issue. I typically like to reframe these types of questions as “What happens if I say ‘Yes’?, “What happens if I say ‘No’?”, and “What happens if I don’t take any action on this at all right now?” Doing this can provide you with more options and more control over the outcome of your situation or issue at hand.
Q: Can I ask questions and/or take notes during the reading?
A: Absolutely! Given that the reading and the message it provides is specifically for you, I highly encourage you to ask questions and take notes.
Q: When should I call you for a Tarot reading?
A: Get a reading when you feel you need some Spiritual guidance on a situation or issue that concerns you. This could include issues with relationships, questions about travel, issues or situations at work, decisions you have to make, what kind of choices you might have for a given situation or issue, questions about your inner self, and questions about your path in life.
Q: How often should I call you for a Tarot reading?
A: Only when you really feel you need a reading. This would be when you need an update on the outlook or status of your situation or issue, or when you have an entirely new situation or issue that concerns you. Based on the amount of information I typically get for any given reading, there is really no need for you to book a reading every week.
Q: Are you doing in-person personal readings again?
A: Not quite yet. I've been doing a lot of personal readings via Zoom and Skype, and they seem to be quite popular with my clients. There is a lot more flexibility in selecting a date and time for the reading and it eliminates the worry about a place to meet and where to park.
Q: Are you again starting to do public readings for business events, parties, psychic fairs and the like?
A: Yes, to some extent; I'm only doing public readings at selected Psychic Fairs in the SoCal area. I also started participating in the MeWe On-line Psychic Fair late last year (2022) and I hope to continue doing so as my schedule permits. I may get back to doing readings at business events and various types of parties later this year.
Q: What do I do if I have any questions, would like to leave a testimonial about my reading, or be added to your mailing list?
A: You can contact me at any time about any of this and I will gladly get back to you as soon as I can.
Q: I like the Tarot cards you use on your site. Which decks do they come from?
