What to Expect at a Reading

tarot cards 7 smallPeople often ask me about what they should expect at a One and a Half Feet on the Ground tarot reading. Often they are unsure of what to say and do, and are generally just a bit nervous about the whole process.

So here it is – a step by step guide of what you can expect at one of my tarot readings.

ARRANGING THE READING

You can request a tarot reading with me here at Contact Me.

When you request a reading, I will get back to you within a day or two to have a quick chat and arrange a date and time that is mutually suitable. I’ll also provide you with further location and contact details.

BEFORE THE READING

It is usually best if you have a particular topic or question in mind that you would like guidance about before the reading.

For example, you may like to ask about a general topic such as career, general health, love, family, general finances, etc. Or you may wish to explore current “story” around a particular relationship, job, friendship, week, month, holiday, etc.

Please note that I will only read on questions/topics that directly involve you, and questions should be open-ended (i.e. Yes/No questions are not appropriate).

When considering your question/topic, you should also keep in mind that my tarot readings usually cover a time period of around three months, depending on your situation. I can extend this out to six months or even one year, but I find the longer the time period, the less detailed the “story”/guidance.

WHEN YOU ARRIVE

Once you arrive, I will review your question to ensure that I can answer it in line with my Code of Ethics. If I feel that your question may need to be rephrased, I will discuss how this can be done with you first.

I will also consult with you as to which tarot spread (card arrangement) that I intend to use before I begin the reading.

Finally, we will discuss whether you want to take home a sound recording of your reading or not. For an additional $5, I can provide you with a CD that contains a recording of our conversation, and an image of your particular tarot spread.

THE TAROT READING

I use a counselling-based method when working with the tarot, and so my readings are interactive and involve two-way conversation – I talk with you rather than to you, and we create your insightful tarot reading together. I guess you could almost say that I’m a bit like an unofficial counsellor or a life coach, but with a twist!

To begin, I will give you the tarot cards to shuffle while you concentrate on your topic, before I shuffle the cards myself and lay them out according to the tarot spread agreed upon. Starting with card position number one, I will then start telling you the “story” that I see in the cards.

By working with you to “read” your story as told within the tarot cards, I can provide you with understanding and validation around your situation. Often my clients will say, “Yes! That’s exactly how I’m feeling or sums up what I’m going through! But how did you know?” I can also help you to identify any actions, people and or/feelings that may be influencing your circumstances, and then also open you up to possibilities and solutions that may not have been previously considered.

I generally find that my clients get more out of the reading if you are willing to discuss your situation with me, and provide feedback as to whether you can relate to what I am reading in the cards. However, how much or how little you reveal to me is totally up to you.

Please also be assured that anything we discuss is confidential.

If after the first few cards, the reading is simply not making any sense to you, we will stop the reading and I will refund your money in full. This happens very rarely, but if it does I tend to assume that for whatever reason you are simply not meant to know about this topic/question at this particular point in time.

NOTES TO TAKE HOME

Once the reading has finished, I will either make some brief notes about the reading for you to take home with you OR burn our recorded conversation onto CD for you (additional $5), as well as an image of your tarot spread.

Your notes will specify which cards came up and how they relate to your topic, and will act as a “memory jogger” for you. I will not keep a copy of these notes.

YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR OWN ACTIONS

Please be aware that at your Tarot Reading, I will provide guidance and insight in your topic/question, but you have the free will to choose whether you will follow this guidance or not. You are therefore responsible for your actions following your tarot reading.

CANCELLATIONS

It would be very much appreciated if cancellations are made at least 24 hours prior to our arranged time. However, if you need to cancel last minute please let me know asap.

REFUNDS

If after the first few cards, the reading is simply not making any sense to you, we will stop the reading and I will refund your money in full. This happens very rarely, but if it does I tend to assume that for whatever reason you are simply not meant to know about this topic/question at this particular point in time.

Refunds cannot be given after a reading is complete.
