DEEDRA, IT'S MY FIRST TIME GETTING A READING WITH YOU, WHAT ARE YOU LIKE?
I am pretty frank, straight forward, fun and positive. I tend to see the higher reason for why things are happening. I am not judgmental. I do my best to relay the information in a realistic way as I interpret the cards. I don't sugar coat messages. I am known to tell it like it is with a light heart and sense of humor because it is in your best interest for me to be honest. Even if you are missing the point (usually because your ego is trying to interpret what I am saying), I will kindly be relentless until your ego moves out of the way. I will be real while keeping the reading spiritually mindful. Expect the session to be a collaborative effort between me, you and the cards. If you have to cry...totally cry. It is not uncommon for waterworks to start once we start diving into life. It's not about me telling you about your future. If you ask..."When will I get married?" the tarot and I aren't great at dates (I suggest consulting an astrologer). The answer most likely will describe the kind of mindset you will be in by the time you are ready to get married (if you do). Life is a process of lessons and exercises. Don't be surprised if the cards initially bring up current time situations because to understand the probable future, we must have clarity on who are you right now. I am not a fortune teller! I am here to help you awaken and understand what you are creating for your soul growth.
WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO APPROACH A READING?
See it as a spiritual check in. Ask about yourself. Lots of times people want to know about other people but do you go to a medical doctor and ask how someone else is doing?
HOW LONG SHOULD I WAIT UNTIL I BOOK ANOTHER FOLLOW UP READING?
Quarterly, semi annually or annually. Tarot readings address your soul goals. It takes real life living time to process, absorb and understand what the reading was about as you perceive it in your body, mind and soul. Your Ego will expect quick, solid answers and want to see obvious results right away but that is not who the tarot and I speaking to. We are not speaking to the impatient Ego. We are talking to your Higher Self, your Soul. Allowing the tarot reading to be realized within your personal experience requires patience.
DEEDRA, ARE YOU PSYCHIC?
I consider myself an intuitive. I definitely have moments of clairvoyant visions and clairaudient hearing. I dream a lot and get messages too. I have my "medium" type moments. I just go with the flow and trust. Sometimes guides, ancestors and fairy friends might show up but I don't expect them to unless they are pretty loud and clear and I am able to perceive them.
HOW TO PREPARE FOR A READING:
Be open to whatever the cards bring up. I lay the cards out first...they guide the session and make us talk.
DEEDRA, WHAT IS THE HISTORY OF THE TAROT?
Google “tarot history” and you will find all the information you need. I didn’t study the history, I just know how to read the cards. I think tarot started in Italy in the 1400's. Yes...it's old.
DEEDRA, DO YOU HAVE TO BE CERTIFIED OR LICENSED TO BE A TAROT READER?
No, there is no law for tarot readers. I never went through any certification program, followed a mentor nor had an institution tell me I was ready to “read” for people. I followed my passion, intuition, and soul expression. Only the client can determine whether I am legit or not. YOU are my teachers and I thank you! In fact, it's known to be "for entertainment purposes only". And I really dislike how television and movies portray tarot readers...like I am messing with the devil. Please....that is so boring and fear based. It's a shame they don't educate viewers on how to use the tarot as a tool for self awareness.
