When I do someones cards, its a very personal thing to me. Whatever is being talked about in this reading is absolutely confidential.
Sometimes, I can sense panic and worry, when people come to me to have their cards read, because they wonder if I might judge them for whatever is going on in their lifes or what I might be able to see. Know this, I never tell and I try not to judge and see the situation in front of me as none of my business.
That is because – it isnt any of my business. I am here to tell you, what you need to know, not tell all of your stories to my friends afterwards when we are done with our session.
I say session, because it is so much more than just having your cards read. I think in all of my tarot card reading life, I have only done a handfull of readings, that consisted of only reading the cards and then packing the deck away straight after.
Usually, I try and take time for everyone who asks me for help, as I love explaining the meaning of the cards and interact with them on a personal level. Some people that come to me also need someone to talk to. Maybe they need a crystal, or advise on how to deal with certain situations. I really enjoy being part of this progress and that is why I like to make time and space for someone who is asking for help. Of course, discrecion is always a given.
I dont do more than two sessions a day, as it takes a lot out of me emotionally and energetically, but I absolutely enjoy the one on one time with people and their questions.
If you are thinking of doing cards, you must always remember, that this is a very special gift that comes with the responsibility to deal with your clients problems and fears in a respectful manner.
Starting out, really take your time to get to know the cards you are using and listen to your clients, after you have done their reading. Everyone who has a problem, they can not seem to deal with needs to talk. I am sure each one of us does readings differently, but this is how I see it and this is what is important to me.
