Q & A

"What is your approach to tarot reading?"

With 20 years of experience and relying on my spiritual guide - the female Buddha Green Tara -always at my heart, my readings come always from a space securely grounded in love, compassion and wisdom.

I reflect on every facet of the cards - positive, negative and neutral - to give a clear and holistic view. Although there are elements of past and future, in my readings the main focus is on the present and how to best transform any strengths and obstacles in the here and now for the best possible future outcomes.

I incorporate your astrological birth chart into your tarot readings, this gives a greater depth to interpretations of how you may be dealing with any current situations. This reveals the best approach for you as an individual to help you to turn it around or work with it to most benefit you, your loved ones and your community.

My approach is one of great respect for the unknown, completely confidential and non-judgmental. I do not label myself a fortune teller, psychic, medium, clairvoyant or clairaudient, remaining open minded to the mysteries of our universe. 

I hold the intention that the experience is safe, loving, free from any possible harm and for the highest good for the querent and all involved. I prefer to do readings one-to-one in a clear, safe and tranquil place. 

My readings come from deep trust in my intuition based on experience, connection with my divine heart and spiritual guides. From experience I am confident that my AstroTarot readings deliver a soulful and timely message to give clarification and insight at any stage in life.

"Do you offer readings for groups or tarot parties?" 

Groups readings are welcome if there is a uninterrupted space for one-to-one readings. 

Please be sensitive and supportive to others in the group after their individual reading. Readings can shed light on areas which may be very personal. Where some may wish to share their experience, please respect that others may wish to keep certain aspects private.

"When is a good time to book a reading?"

This may be any time, whenever you feel the inspiration to do so...

Particularly I find people seek out readings:

  • In times of transition
  • When you have important decisions to make
  • Feeling stuck & confused
  • When you need guidance on certain areas of your life
  • Relationships
  • Family
  • Career
  • Education
  • Travel
  • Spiritual fulfillment
  • Special holidays
  • Beginnings and Endings
  • Moving house
  • Leaving the country
  • Birthdays
  • New years
  • New moons
  • Milestones

"What should I expect?"

Before the reading I will have asked you for your date, place & time of birth and will have your astrological chart on hand to refer to during the tarot reading. I can give a basic or more in depth explanation of the symbols and angles in your personal chart before your reading, if desired.

When you have your reading, I ask you to choose a deck that you feel drawn to. I have many packs, but currently I mainly use: The Rider-Waite Tarot, Goddess Tarot, Herbal Tarot, Mucha Tarot and Shadowscapes Tarot.

I would ask you to take some moments to reflect on the areas where you most need guidance and clarity in your life just now. In your heart you request the cards that will best help you at this stage in your life's journey while you shuffle the tarot deck.

Every astrotarot experience is completely unique. You can expect to see a reflection of your heart & mind. How recognisable this is will depend on how conscious you are of your own mind.

There may be a rollercoaster of big & exciting life changes, or things may be just ticking quietly along. It may be a dark and difficult time you must endure. It may be a time of peace and freedom. There may be surprising tears of sorrow, or equally tears of joy and laughter.

I cannot promise a "tall, dark & handsome stranger" if it's not in the cards (though sometimes it is!). I can only tell you the story that appears in the symbols, shapes, colours and movement shown in the cards that are drawn. 

When you are ready, I will lay out the cards and share with you what the cards reveal about your current questions, queries and concerns.

"What if I'm not happy with my reading?"

I have continued my journey as an AstroTarot reader encouraged only by my clients' consistently positive reactions & feedback.  

I will not always tell you what you want to hear, but what I can promise is a refreshingly honest and sometimes surprising perspective on your life that offers you the insight and guidance to make positive decisions to move forward in your life.

Despite the ups and downs of life, so far I have never experienced anyone unhappy with their reading and only received feedback that my reading has helped folk gain renewed clarity, deeper awareness and increased perspective on their current issues.
