What are Tarot cards ?

            There is no definitive moment in history when we can say for certain that the Tarot first became used as a method of divination. The origins of the Tarot are still shrouded in myth even today. Many theories on where they originated range from ancient Egypt, to China and India.

            What is certain is that a form of playing card similar to the Tarot of today, was in use in Renaissance Europe in the 14th or 15th century and over the centuries it has grown to incorporate everything from Astrology to Kabbalah

The traditional Tarot consists of a deck of 78 cards, split into the Major Arcana consisting of 22 cards, each illustrated with a specific set of symbols and the Minor Arcana consisting of 56 cards divided into 14 cards in each of four suits: Wands, Cups, Swords and Pentacles. The word Arcane means ‘mysteries’ or ‘secrets.’Our modern playing card deck is descended from the Minor Arcana of the Tarot.

             Today there is a limitless assortment of Tarot decks available, but by far the most popular for many Tarot interpreters is the Rider-Waite deck. On my website at present you will see depicted the Rider – Waite and the Lenormand tarot depicting hidden messages in their beautiful, yet simplistic artwork.



How is Tarot used for divination?

            I tune into your energy and with the tarot interpret

your situatio. 

I have developed this ability over many years and now I can

tune into the psychic frequency at will! Anyone can learn

the meaning of a card but without using their strong intuition, 

it might as well be gibberish. I sense what those cards mean

for you and interpret them accordingly. Two people with the same

cards in the same layout may have very different messages. 

Sometimes I just “get a feeling” which has nothing to do with the cards – just me tuning into you!

Can you read for anybody?

My readings are typically straightforward and I am here to introduce you to the facts. If you seek an answer and follow the advice, then the tarot is beneficial for you. 


How is it possible to do a reading over Email?

          Because physical location is only relevant in the physical world. Distance and time are not a barrier in the spiritual world!

It doesn’t matter if you are sitting directly in front of me or are halfway across the world. And no it doesn't even matter if you haven't touched the cards. I have and still do hundreds of readings online by email. The messages from the universe are still just as accurate.

In fact I feel that a quiet environment is best as there are little distractions and I am better able to pick up on things when I am not limited by your time constraints.


Is there a right way to ask my question?

         The right questions will get you the right answer. Leave your questions open ended. Questions starting with What/ How/ Why will get you satisfactory answers. What’s NEVER helpful: Asking the same question over and in a different manner just to try and “get” the answer you want. If you don’t want to know the answer, don’t ask the question.


Is tarot ever unable to answer a question?

         Sometimes. You might ask the cards a question, but the answer is not available because the future is still too fluid to give clarity or the question may not have a black and white answer and may need some more time to have passed before it can be answered. But even in that case, the cards always show you a game plan to wait it out or show you what you can do to modify the situation.

Are Tarot cards Evil?

         Tarot Cards are not Evil or Bad Luck, but are simply an expression of our Subconscious wherein lies the answers or solutions to all our Life Issues. 


The day after our session I realised that I forgot to ask you a question. Can you clarify just that one point?

       Unfortunately no, and I'll tell you why. When I'm in the middle of a reading I'm usually so tuned into your situation that I get messages from the universe in a continuous flow. While in the reading you could ask any question you want and you will get your answers right away. But once the reading is done, its done. Most of the times I cant even recollect what was asked or what was answered!
