  • What is Tarot?
    Tarot is a system of divination called cartomancy. The tarot can be used for many purposes but historically it fell into two distinct groups: esoteric and exoteric. Esoteric tarot contains within it deeper spiritual truths and was developed mostly within secret societies. Exoteric tarot, though you won’t hear it called that, developed in the wider public domain and has been used to tell fortunes and predict future events in people’s lives. A tarot deck consists of 78 cards divided into two main groups: the twenty-two Major Arcana cards, or trumps, and the fifty-six Minor Arcana, or pip cards. A further division is then made with the pip cards as they are divided into four suits: Wands/Staves/Rods – Cups/Chalices – Swords -Pentacles/Disks/Coins. Within each suit a further structure can be found beginning with an ace, then cards numbered 2-10, followed by four court cards that display a hierarchy in the following order: Page/Knave – Knight – Queen – King.

  • How does tarot help?
    Tarot provides help by providing clarity to the elements of your situation that you cannot see. If the picture is incomplete, you cannot possibly begin to form an accurate assessment of what is happening in your life, and more importantly, you cannot make an informed decision about how to take things forward. Clarity comes through being shown the motives of others (and yourself), their intentions (and yours). Tarot pulls back the veil and reveals what is affecting your life. The beauty of tarot is not just how it can show the who, what, where and when, but also the why. A misconception can exist that a tarot reading is either predictive or psychological, but the reality is can do both, and when it does, a fuller picture can seen in the cards before you.
  • Does tarot give you a clear answer?
    It doesn’t always seem to! But, over time, and especially if you keep a tarot journal, you will be able to see how the cards have been directing you and talking to you over a particular issue. One of the benefits of keeping a tarot journal is that you can go back over a tarot reading and glean something new or different from it. Sometimes we are too emotional, too invested or too close to a problem or issue to see clearly what the tarot is trying to show us. We can also, if we aren’t being fully honest with ourselves, mis-interpret the cards and find when we look back over time, that the tarot was right and we were deluding ourselves. At other times the answers provided in a tarot reading can feel like a slap across the face because of its brutal honesty. I personally find this with the Thoth Tarot and when I’m ready to see the truth of a situation, it is my deck of choice.
  • Can tarot tell the future?
    In a word, yes. Sometimes so stunningly so that it takes your breath away. At other times a reading can appear nuanced, or more general but as time progresses, details of the reading can be seen to be played out in your own or the querent’s life. A large enough Tarot spread can give you a very keen sense of the probabilities inherent in a situation, but the specific way that things turn out are, in the final analysis, up to you -- how well you adapt to the ever-changing conditions that your Tarot reading reflects. A Tarot reading gives a snapshot of what is going on in the Present, the time you are picking the cards. It can help you see aspects of a situation that have been invisible to your ego.

  • I’ve never had a tarot reading before and I’m nervous. What can I expect?
    First off, I'd like to say welcome! I love reading for people new to tarot. It's a very exciting place to be, and there's absolutely no pre-requisite required to have the experience - no special spiritual background, mindset, or belief system needed. In fact, you may find yourself better primed to take in all the tarot has to offer without any preconceived notions of what it is. That's not to say the idea of tarot comes with some baggage - shifty fortune-tellers, ominous predictions, and more. Don't worry, you're not going to hear some unchangeable bad news and you don't need to do anything special. Just show up as your beautiful self with an open mind. As for what to expect, a tarot reading with me is like a conversation. That's right, I'm not going to have you sit in silence while I lay the truth on you. My reading style is collaborative and exploratory. You get to steer the reading in the directions that interest you most. This includes participating as much or as little as you’d like, so there’s no need to feel like you’ll be put on the spot. You don't need to expect solemn, hushed tones or absolute seriousness. That's not to say we won't be going to deep places. It'll just be with a healthy dose of curiosity, enthusiasm, and humour.
  • What kind of questions can I ask?
    The best types of questions to ask in tarot readings: 1. Open-ended questions Open-ended questions are the best type of questions to ask in tarot readings. Examples include: Tell me about my career. How can I improve my relationship with X? What is happening in my love life right now? The reason you want to have these broad questions is because you want the story from the tarot, not the final answer—you should decide that. You don’t go to a movie and just ask to know the ending. You want to see the movie because you want to see the context. You want to go through the journey. Phrasing questions in this way provides the cards with an opportunity to share unexpected information that can be helpful, such as pointing out key players in a situation, emotions that may be underneath the surface, or limiting beliefs that are holding you back. Also, just because a question is open-ended doesn’t mean it can’t be detailed. Be specific when necessary. If you have a certain thing you want to know, don’t be afraid to put details like names, places, and dates in your question. 2. General questions Although asking the tarot cards questions about something specific can provide some powerful insight, you don’t necessarily need to ask a question at all. You can tell your tarot card reader you want a general reading and see what messages come up. Or, if you’re pulling cards for yourself, you can simply ask: "What do I need to know right now?" 3. Clarifying questions If you pull a card, and you’re still a bit fuzzy about what it means in relation to the context of your question, it’s totally cool to follow up with questions of clarification. Often, the best readings are had when further clarification or other questions are needed. It can really drill down a topic. To do this, it is suggested letting the cards know that you’re confused about the meaning and pull another with the intention of getting an explanation as to what it means. And if after that you’re still not sure what the heck the cards are trying to tell you, don’t haphazardly pull a bunch of cards. Instead, just sit with the answer for some time and allow it to marinate. The meaning will likely reveal itself in the future. Remember, keeping these pointers top of mind isn't just for the benefit of the tarot reader, it's for the benefit of yourself. And while you may want to visit a professional tarot card reader for questions you're particularly stuck on, there's no reason not to DIY a reader if you have a deck. Beginners can start with a one-card pull to set intentions or gain clarity on a single question, or you can learn the ins-and-outs of tarot with a spread. But no matter how you choose to get a reading, you can rest assured that the cards will yield stronger answers if you use smarter framing in asking them. So to recap, keep your open-ended questions specific and don't be afraid to go general if you're unsure about what you want to know. Also be willing to ask follow-up questions like "What do you mean by this?" if your first card isn't being clear. And above all, don't ask a question if you don't want to know the answer—seriously.
