A Reading with The Tarot Muse
Understand your past, enhance the present,
and envision your future with the Tarot as your guide.
A consultation with The
Tarot Muse encourages you to explore both your external and internal lives
through this symbolic language. Rather than predicting events with the cards, I
use the Tarot to help you discover your own inner wisdom in a way that provides
guidance, offers direction, and reveals options you may not have been aware of.
Your reading will illuminate current issues and highlight forthcoming concerns;
each session is a satisfying, healing, and empowering experience. As The Tarot Muse, I will try to inspire and encourage you toward the
realization of your goals and the creation of a more fulfilling future.

A Few Things to Consider in Consulting the Tarot
do you want the reading?
Are you interested in
general guidance or do you have specific areas to focus on—career, love,
family, life path, self-growth, etc.?
do you hope to gain from the reading?
Do you want
guidance, a new perspective, advice, answers, wisdom? Keep in mind that a
Tarot reading does not “tell you what to do,” but rather offers you a
look at some options and possibilities that may be available to you,
depending on what you choose to do regarding them.
you asking about yourself or what someone else will do?
A Tarot reading will not tell you whether an ex-partner of yours will return
to you or go back to their previous partner, or if your supervisor is
planning to take another job. When asking about other people, it is more
productive to explore the energy between the two of you than to concern
yourself about issues over which you have no control.
just had an argument with your spouse (sister,
Can you have a reading right now? Not a good idea. It is best
to not approach the cards when you are upset, angry, stressed-out, majorly
depressed, or ill. Because they are sensitive to your inner vibrations, the
cards will reflect your current mental or emotional state. Better to wait a
day or two when feelings are not so intense and you can attempt to be more
objective about what you are asking. And as always, the best readings occur
when you are calm, centered, and receptive to your higher energies.
you have to ask specific questions?
No. If you
have specific areas you wish to explore, go for it. For additional
information on this, see “The
Question's the Thing." It is also perfectly fine—and
often extremely insightful—to leave the reading more open-ended, asking
“What is it I most need to see (or focus on, attend to, etc.) in my life
the Tarot tell you what to do or what will happen
regardless of what you do? Absolutely NOT! As stated earlier, consulting the
Tarot will never take away your free will to make choices and decisions—or
to completely disregard whatever information comes up in the reading. Think
of it as you would a good friend who might offer thoughts and advice, but
wouldn’t require you to take it.
a friend or family member sit in on your reading?
Yes—if you want someone else with you during the session, that’s fine,
as long as the two of you are in agreement with the arrangement. However,
please do not bring babies or small children along. I have no child care
available and the presence of a youngster can be distracting to both you and
me, thus diminishing the quality of the reading.
you make comments or ask questions during the session?
Of course. A Tarot reading is a three-part process, involving the reader,
client, and the cards. All three should have a voice.
about privacy? I am a certified professional Tarot
reader with a personal code of ethics, including complete privacy for you.
you need an appointment?
Yes. I read by
appointment only: there is no walk-in service. When you contact me for a
session I will attempt to schedule as promptly as possible.
you get a reading the same day that you contact me?
Usually not. If possible, I prefer a minimum of at least a day or two ahead,
for scheduling purposes. If I can accommodate you that day or the following
one, I will, but same-day readings are unlikely.
alert: If you are cat-allergic or have other
special allergies (dust, etc.), do let me know.
