The Exceptional Tarot Reader
The reader assumes a role that is a combination of storyteller, guide, and spiritual advisor to the client. Melding classic and esoteric knowledge of the Tarot with psychic ability produces a powerful evaluation and assessment of the patterns presently at work in a client's life and where these energies are taking the client into the future.
The Relationship of Psychic Ability to Reading the Tarot
I don't support the notion that only a few, exceptional individuals possess psychic ability. I believe in fact, that everyone has this gift. The difference between those who are identified as psychics, is that they actively work to develop their psychic ability, rely on it, and act on its information. This is the secret of becoming a psychic! When you begin to pay attention to information that comes into your consciousness from "unknown" sources, and act on that information, your ability to intuit strengthens 10 fold. It's like any muscle in the body - "use it or lose it", as the old adage goes.
Divining with the Tarot
The Tarot reader moves into an altered consciousness, called a "flow" state. Attention, activity, and involvement are intensely focused without regard for a particular objective. The self-forgetfulness concentrates skill, knowledge, and subliminal awareness at the service of the patterns that emerge in answer to the client's question.

Tarot Reading and Health
I read the Tarot in a number of High Tea venues here in Canada, as well, I also read online with psychicanada.com. One lovely Spring Sunday afternoon, a woman in her '70's asked of the Tarot, "How will my health be over the coming year?" I used a six card spread to address this woman's health question.
In the position of what's challenging you, I turned up the 4 disks. In classic divinatory meaning, the 4 of Disks points to the "power of the earth".
Introduction to "The Initiate's Journey to Magical Readership"
The Fool's Journey to Wholeness is a model of interpreting the central psycho/spiritual message depicted in the Major Arcana. It signifies a psychic map that initiates of the Tarot follow to attain enlightenment. Enlightenment in this case representing a psychic awareness of oneness, the cycles of birth, death and rebirth, egoless-ness, love, and the balancing of energies. This spiritual map guides initiates through a maze of relating, balancing and experiencing the play between masculine/feminine, black/white, chaos/order, nurturance/self care, love/fear, movement/stillness, doing/being, sacred masculine/sacred feminine.
The Initiate's Journey to Magical Readership
The Feminine Journey to Magical Tarot Readership
For more than half my life, I've been ruminating, passionately seeking the answer to the question, "Why is it that 95% of Tarot readers, teachers and clients are women? What is it about the Tarot reading process that speaks so eloquently to women? What do they expect to find, and does the Tarot satisfy their quest?"
