Learn to read tarot cards: Tips from a professional tarot reader

tarot mirrorLearning how to read tarot cards is an on-going process. If you lived a hundred life times you would probably still be uncovering new ways to view them and continue to discover new meanings for each card. I’ve been reading tarot cards professionally for over 30 years, and I’m still amazed by how a piece of coloured card can speak to you so clearly, directly and truthfully. There are a multitude of books and articles online about the subject, and I can only recommend that you let your intuition be your guide to which you choose to help you on your journey to learning tarot. I will be sharing a weekly tip with you on the craft of tarot reading by drawing on my many years experience of working daily in live readings with the cards. This week’s tip is: “Often the messages the tarot gives can be a little at odds with what we believe to be true. But it never lies. Why would it? The tarot is like a mirror it can only reflect the truth in our lives,  whether we are prepared to accept it or not.” Bear this in mind, should you be reading for yourself or someone else, and you find yourself trying to resist what the tarot is truly trying to say to you.

With my help you can learn to read tarot cards.

Tea Omens

tea cupWe Brits love our cuppa. I can’t get started in the mornings without drinking two cups first, and after that it’s probably one every hour!

So I was interested to read in one of my old fortune telling books, that there are various superstitions associated with our daily cuppa.

Here they are:

Dried tea-leaves from a used pot, were once scattered outside of a home, to protect it from harm and evil spirits.

It’s thought unlucky to stir with anything but a spoon, and to stir someone else’s tea with a spoon is said to stir trouble for them.

If the tea you make is unexpectedly weak, it means a friendship you hold dear is weakening. If it is unusually strong, a friendship is growing strong.

If you spill tea whilst making a cup, it forecast luck for the woman of the house

A single floating tea-leaf forecast a stranger would soon be at the door.

To inadvertently place two spoons in a saucer is a sign of marriage for the person using the saucer or twins to be born within the family. tea bubbles

I also have one tea omen that my dear old Gran passed to me, ‘if your cup of tea is bubbly’ ….money is coming your way, the more bubbles the more money. Lovely!

Please don’t be impatient for your psychic reading

boundariesI’m a psychic One-Woman-Band so to speak (sadly lacking in any musical ability however, people leave the room should I burst into song 🙂 )

Whilst I absolutely love working for myself, it’s a bit of a juggling act to get everything done within office hours. This is because I do everything myself  entirely without any assistance.

And there is much more to it than just preparing and sending out psychic readings (which in themselves take up considerable amounts of time).

I receive many emails each day in addition to psychic reading requests. Queries from visitors about which reading they should choose, etc. I try to answer them all quickly.

I also run and update my own website, run my Facebook page (over 12,000 fans) including responding to messages from members, and also my own Twitter account.

As I know I’m under pressure time wise, I always try to be honest on the order pages of my readings about the turnaround time for each reading. In this way my clients know exactly how long they may expect to wait for a reading. Usually I’m able to get the reading to my clients well before the time frame specified, as I know how important it is to have answers to questions when you are worried and looking for psychic guidance.

And I do also offer a fast track Same Day psychic reading service for those who feel they must have their answer today.

So I feel I have done all I can to clarify waiting times for readings. And so I ask that once you have ordered please don’t bombard me with messages asking when your reading will be ready.  It actually takes my time up investigating whether your reading may in fact be late and responding to your email to remind you it is not!  And  also enquiring in this way is actually  likely to have a negative effect on the swiftness of your reading being returned to you.

When you order you will receive an automated message acknowledging payment and then unless I need to ask for further info, your psychic reading will be with you as specified and as you have agreed to wait to by ordering the service.

It is important for the future of my work and my emotional wellness that clients respect my personal boundaries just as I respect theirs too.



Who is your zodiac angel?



Many of us read astrology forecasts in newspapers and magazines, and so are familiar with our  own astrological signs.

A book published earlier this year by world famous angel guru Doreen Virtue, and astrologer Yasmin Boland, explains how each zodiac sign is actually paired with an Archangel.

While your own zodiac angel can give you a deeper understanding of yourself, you can of course, always call upon any of the archangels for help depending on what you need. Angels are always there for us, no matter what our  zodiac sign is!

Here’s a list of the 12 zodiac signs and related Archangels


Your angel is: Ariel

Aries is associated with spring. Ariel is associated with the outdoors so they make a good pair.

Ariel is the angel who helps people to make things happen in life so you can appeal to Ariel to help achieve your dreams, particularly if you’re looking to improve relationships.

Those born under the sign of Aries tend to rush around and are at times selfish so if you’re aware that you need to slow down or feel your ego is taking over call upon Ariel to remind you to think about how others are feeling.


Your angel is: Zadkiel 

Gemini is the lighthearted flirt of the zodiac and Zadkiel is all about forgiveness.

If you know you’re being too superficial or flighty and don’t have a strong enough connection with the people in your life, he can help.

Similarly if you have had a big argument with someone, ask Zadkiel to assist with forgiveness.

Geminis have a tendency to follow their heads more than their hearts. Connecting with Zadkiel can reconnect you with your emotional centre.


Your angel is: Gabriel

This star sign and the angel are both associated with parenting. If you are trying to get pregnant ask Gabriel for help with conception.

While Cancerians are very good at managing money, Gabriel will also help you to seek your fortune, particularly if you’re an artist or writer.

Cancerians are naturally nurturing so if you want to have a happier home life or need more time to nurture yourself, these are things Gabriel can assist with.

Each star sign is paired with an archangel – a heavenly being who can be called upon to help if you have difficulties or need guidanceLEO

Your angel is: Raziel

Leos are associated with drama and showmanship and the angel Raziel is equally flamboyant.

Leos are fun to be around and can be magnanimous and generous but also have a tendency to hog the limelight.

If this is true of you then ask Raziel for help. In fact anyone can appeal to Raziel if their confidence or ego is spiralling out of control.

If you have a relationship that needs healing or a phobia you want to overcome then talk to Raziel.


Your angel is: Metatron

Archangel Metatron is associated with healing and clearing away bad energy.

Virgos are good at confronting problems and issues and Metatron takes this confrontational energy and turns it into something positive.

If you want to analyse a difficult situation and come to the right conclusion, Metatron will point you in the best direction. Metatron is also useful if you are feeling self-critical.

Virgos are natural worriers and Metatron’s healing energy can clear away bad feeling.


Your angel is: Jophiel

Librans are often trying to strike a balance in life and Jophiel can help if you feel out of kilter.

He is often called the feng shui angel because he helps to clear out clutter, both in your house and mental clutter that stops you achieving your dreams.

Librans can have low self-esteem and Jophiel can help them see the beauty in life and themselves. For matters of the heart or if you have a tumultuous love life, call on Jophiel for assistance.


Your angel is: Jeremiel

The deepest and darkest of all the signs, Scorpio is associated with death, rebirth and passion.

Similarly archangel Jeremiel reminds us that life has both light and dark sides and the most important thing is to get a clear understanding of how you are doing.

If you’re looking to review your life Jeremiel is the angel for you. Scorpios can be paranoid and hold grudges but appealing to Jeremiel can help you let go.

He’s also a good angel to appeal to if you’re looking to enhance you psychic abilities.


Your angel is: Raguel

Raguel is a sociable archangel with good, friendly energy great at helping solve disputes. Sagittarians are happy go lucky people but can sometimes be accused of talking too much and not having enough substance, so Raguel can help tone down over-enthusiasm.

Invoke Raguel if you are looking to reignite some old friendships or forget new ones. He’s also brilliant to ask for assistance should an argument be getting out of control.


Your angel is: Azrael

Azrael is an angel who helps people cross over from life to death. He’s a great angel for helping people come to terms with fear or for those who need to let go of grief.

Capricorns are ambitious, hardworking and practical, often to such an extent that they forget about their emotions. If this is the case and you know you’re being too intellectual then ask Azrael for some grounding energy.


Your angel is: Uriel

The most cerebral of the archangels, Uriel is like a wise old uncle. He is paired with Aquarians, who often live in their heads rather than their hearts.

If you feel uncomfortable with emotions ask Uriel to help you open up. Many Aquarians are obsessed with finding their soulmate.

If this sounds like you, appeal to Uriel. He will offer wisdom and insight and can guide you to select the right partner.


Your angel is: Chamuel

Chamuel is the angel who helps people find things, whether you’ve lost your mobile phone, your way on a journey or your path in life.

If you need a new source of income, true love or simply want to reconnect with an old friend, Chamuel will help.

If you’re a Taurus, Chamuel can guide you on to the right path and work out what matters. Taureans have expensive tastes so if you’re overly materialistic, Chamuel can help ground you.


Your angel is: Sandalphon

Pisces is a dreamy, romantic and mysterious sign. People born under it are associated with music and Sandalphon is the angel of music.

Call upon Sandalphon forhelp to give your creative side a boost or to help you find inner peace when you’re feeling stressed.

Once you’ve asked for help, listen out for songs as the lyrics could contain the message Sandalphon wants you to hear.


Communicating with your zodiac angel is simple.

Find a quiet place and  light a candle and for 10 minutes think about whatever you are seeking. You can also connect with the angel just by asking for help, even if you’re on the go.

Don’t expect a divine voice to reply, instead look for pointers in your everyday life such as coincidences or positive situations that arise. These can be signs that the angels are responding.
