Please keep in mind that my Tarot readings will only give you the potentials for the moment in time that the cards are drawn; they will not determine your future; only you can do that by the actions you take. But they may help clarify the issues, provide general information on the energies surrounding a situation, and provide advice on possible ways of handling something. It is my mission only to empower you with information and friendly guidance to make your own decisions about your life.
It is easy to use a reading in an unethical manner to manipulate another, so herewith, my own ethics, based primarily on those of the Tarot Association of the British Isles (TABI).
- Readings are given in confidence between you, the client, and me, the reader.
- All my clients will be treated with equal respect and courtesy.
- I am and always will be open-minded, honest and non-judgmental in my attitudes and behavior.
- I am not a professionally trained psychologist, doctor of medicine, lawyer, or personal counselor. So, if appropriate, I will suggest that you consult a suitably qualified professional (e.g., health or legal professional) and will provide you with whatever contact information I have. Please see the Readings section for links to crisis and advice help lines.
- For paid readings, fees will be published by me and mutually agreed upon prior to the reading.
- If at any time I feel unable to complete a reading, I will let you know with all tact, and if you have already paid, will refund your money.
- You must be 18 years or older to have a reading from me unless you have your parent or guardian’s permission (which is why I ask for your date of birth when signing up). I will assume that you are giving me accurate information in this regard.
- I will be reading for you and not for other people who are not present for the reading. Questions relating to others (e.g., third parties, such as partners, family members, colleagues, etc.) will be re-phrased or declined.

Any actions taken by you the customer are solely your choice and your responsibility.
