10 Questions to Ask Your Reader

I enjoy reading Benebell Wen’s blog for all her deep insight and information.  There was one post where she went into a list of questions asked by James Bulls in which he recommends all clients seeking a reader to ask of them.  I loved reading her answers, and I felt I should share my own for all of you who may be on the edge about purchasing a reading from me.

Were you mentored, or were you self-taught?

I have had a mixture of both.  I’ve spent plenty of time to scour the internet for learning videos and websites, even small online courses, but I’ve also done many practice readings and took the time to create my own interpretations of the cards based on my own experiences with them.  I definitely didn’t learn to read in a bubble, that is for sure!  

Are you a psychic or a Tarot reader?

I am a Tarot Reader.  The word “psychic” tends to bring people images of old ladies sitting behind crystal balls predicting you will marry John and have 3 kids who will become famous or some other such craziness.  While I do admit that I have clairvoyance and clairaudience, I can’t really use it to tell you you’re going to win the lottery.  I read what the cards say and use anything else I get with my senses to create a reading that is useful for you. 

Are your predictions accurate, and is accuracy important to you?

Accuracy is very important to me.  It should be important to any reader.  However, while I can forecast some things, I cannot claim to make solid predictions that are going to come true 100%.  Free will affects predictions and forecasts, however I will try to be accurate in the way I interpret what the cards are telling me as far as advice and steps to take.  If I see something in the cards that may come to pass, the forecast is only good for about 3 months by experience, even less if you are making major changes in your own life.  The cards are always right, but as the interpreter, sometimes I can mistranslate something.

Is there anything you can’t predict in a reading?

Please don’t expect me to be able to predict lottery numbers.  If I could do that, well, I might not be writing this.  I am not comfortable predicting, or forecasting, for current events, pregnancies, death, health concerns, and anything else that would require an actual certified professional such as a doctor or a lawyer.  While I might do current events for fun (much like my Super Bowl post!) it is not something I will do for money.

Do you use only Tarot, or are you multi-disciplinary?

I primarily use tarot cards, however in a few of my readings I utilize oracle cards, as well as my clairvoyant and clairaudient senses.  It’s important to me that I share any feelings or senses if any that I might be getting in a reading, just in case it means something to you personally.  

Is the message in the cards, or in your head?

The message is most certainly in the cards. However, remember, the head is where the brain is, and that is where all the processing power is coming from that allows me to read those cards!  All my experiences with these cards are in my head, and therefore I must say that I use a mixture in order to bring you the answers I do.  

Are you a priest or a fortune-teller?

I almost fancy myself a priestess, however I can’t really claim to be either of these.  I translate the messages in the cards with all the skills in my arsenal and I listen to my spirit guides and work with animal guides in order to bring you your answers.  

Are you a fixer or a looker?

I’m more of a fixer.  I want to look into your problems but it’s important to me that you do get some advice in order to achieve the outcome that you want.  What is the point of being told that your life is a mess without the means of giving you any additional power to get out of it?  Empowerment and freedom are very important gifts I wish to bring to my seekers.

Do you read for free, or for fee?

I do charge for my readings, but only because it takes time to deliver a reading and a great deal of energy to deliver a good one at that.  Occasionally I might offer a freebie if I’m testing something, such as a new deck or spread, but please understand that this is a service and an exchange of energy.  I am confident enough in my reading skills that I am comfortable enough asking for a fee.

Is there anything you won’t predict in a reading?

I answered a similar question up above and the same holds true.  I won’t answer any questions that are better taken to a professional.  I am not a doctor or a lawyer.  I won’t predict a death or a pregnancy.  I am also not comfortable forecasting anything having to do with current events unless I’m just playing around with sports results or other trivial things.  My readings are more for personal growth and empowerment.
