Thank you for your interest! I’m currently booked to capacity for 2020 but will resume readings once the current queue of reserved reading requests have been fulfilled.
Book a 15-minute tarot reading from me. I invoke Divinity to provide you with the spiritual guidance that will answer your question. Love and relationships, career direction, greater life purpose, the trajectory of creative projects, health, some divine support and input in your decision-making, how to resolve particular conflicts– whatever your inquiry, we’ll see what revelations Divinity has to offer you at this time.
In lieu of a tarot reading, you can book a 10-minute astrological birth chart reading. I’m happy to oblige. Just let me know in your reading request and, of course, provide the birth details. I work with the Whole Signs house system and the Tropical zodiac, but am happy to work with Sidereal if you prefer. Birth chart readings will include an image file attachment of your chart with delivery of the reading.
These are 15-minute video-recorded readings that will be scheduled exclusively on Saturdays. [Note: Birth chart reading requests will be 10 minutes long; see below for explanation.] So whether you order the reading on a Monday or a Friday, I’ll be doing your reading on the following Saturday, uploading as a private, unlisted link, and sending to your e-mail inbox on Sunday or Monday.
Accessibility Accommodations: I’m happy to accommodate to any needs you may have, and there is never any extra charge for it. Just let me know in your initial inquiry. I’m happy to type out the reading instead of the video-audio route and provide photographs of the card layouts for you. I am also happy to give bonus minutes in the reading to describe key images or symbols on the cards if you are tuning in by audio only, with no video. Just let me know so I can proceed accordingly.
Info to Provide Me With
To book a reading, e-mail email@example.com with the following information:
- Your name
- Your date of birth, time of birth, and location of birth (or whatever you have of your exact birth details)
- Current location of birth, providing city, state/province, country (this is in case I need to run a transits chart for you)
- Your preferred gender pronoun
- 15-Minute Tarot Reading. Your question (general readings okay, so if you don’t have a question, just let me know you want a general reading). You can request a specific deck system if you wish, choosing (a) the Rider-Waite-Smith deck, (b) Thoth, or (c) my deck, the SKT. Otherwise, I will select a deck per what I’m drawn to for your question.
- 10-Minute Birth Chart Reading. Please specify in your reading request that you want an astrological birth chart reading, not a tarot reading. Please note birth chart readings are 10-minute videos, not 15, because I will be taking 5 minutes extra to cast the chart and study it before turning the recorder on to talk at you. You can request a specific house or zodiac system if you’d like, choosing (a) Whole Signs Tropical or (b) Whole Signs Sidereal, and if you don’t care or don’t specify, my default is Whole Signs Tropical. If you consent to me discussing past lives, then you must mention it in your booking request. Otherwise there will be no mention of past lives.
- Optional. Any background information you want me to know in advance of the reading. You don’t have to send anything at all. Or you can send me a stream-of-consciousness write-up– I’ll figure out what I need to do with it, so just be you. If there are any accessibility accommodations that I need to be aware of, please also provide that clearly in your notes.
You will then receive an e-mail confirmation from us letting you know when your tarot reading is scheduled.
Readings are booked on Saturdays only, first come first serve. James will do the intake and let you know your wait time (whether you’ve gotten a slot for the coming Saturday, or you may need to wait a few weeks).
If you don’t want to wait, no problem. Just reply back and say you want to cancel your request. We totally get it. We will then promptly refund your $45.
In 2020, I will only be offering these Saturday-reserved 15-minute tarot or 10-minute (but 15-minutes for me) birth chart readings, short and sweet. For those who are familiar with my past work, I used to offer long, in-depth one-hour sessions, one-hour plus, etc., which may come back in future years, but right now, this short form is what interests me.
Provide any narrative background you would like me to read before I get into your reading. You can even write me a stream-of-consciousness, unfiltered string of questions. While I can’t guarantee that I’ll get to all those sub-inquiries, I’ll do my best to address the root issues driving those sub-inquiries.
Alternatively, I’m happy to go in with no information whatsoever so as not to be swayed in any particular direction and we can just see as objectively as possible what Spirit has to say at this time. If you prefer to provide nothing, that works for me, too.
15-Minute Tarot Readings
You can ask any question. But it’s only one question, and it’s got to be one I can answer for you within 15 minutes. All tarot readings cap at 15 minutes and begin with a preliminary divination, which is a general reading, before we get into answering your question. The combination of the preliminary general divinatory reading where we are open and receptive to what Divinity has to say to you, irrespective of your question, plus answering your question will total 15 minutes.
I’ll select a card spread based on the nature of your question. Unless you’ve specifically requested that I use a particular deck system for your reading, I’ll also choose a deck based on which of my decks I feel will best answer your inquiry. Every reading, however, no matter your request, will begin with an Opening of the Four Worlds using a significator card that I’ve designated for you.
I hope these sample video recordings that the querents have generously allowed to be shared will give you a sense of what you can expect from a reading– my ramblings, style, how well I stay on topic, how clear or not clear I am, divinatory and interpretative methods, all of it.
10-Minute Birth Chart Readings
Other than reporting what your sun, moon, and rising signs are, I stay away from astrology lingo. I’ll get right to the point in plain English. Because of how short this reading form is, I’m only going to focus on my first impressions and what leaps out the most at me from your chart.
We’re going to cover a little bit of everything– your personality, your career prospects, romantic prospects, physical health, mental health, and what you can expect ages 0 to 25(-ish), 24 to 40, 40 to 65, and then 65 onward. Per your birth chart, what’s the best way for you to make money? I cover the Hermetic Lot of Fortune and Lot of Spirit, a few key asteroids, and do get into modern planetary considerations like Chiron, Ceres, and Eris.
One of my areas of specialty with charts is past life readings, but I only talk about past lives IF you initiate that request. You must specifically mention wanting me to include past life analysis in your chart reading or else I will intentionally omit it (since it does not align with everyone’s beliefs, and I want to respect your boundaries).
Astrological chart readings are 10 minutes, not 15, because I spend a preliminary 5 minutes creating and studying your chart, and writing out a couple notes before we start the video recording. If there is an area of life you’d like me to focus on, do not hesitate to let me know in your reading request.
If you don’t include any special requests for areas of life to focus on, I’ll try to cover as much ground as I can in 10 minutes. If you want me to focus on a few areas, let me know in the reading request so we can devote extra time to what you most want to know about.
About Your Reading
Booking a reading with me implies consent and agreement with all terms noted on this page. The purpose of any reading with me is a deep-dive exploration of the root causes and underlying, often unseen or neglected forces that are driving your situation. We will seek meaning to the circumstances of your interpersonal relationships, the work that you do, and what you are being called to do.
I do not describe my work as predictive or psychic. We examine the critical “points of no return” along your path and address the cause-and-effect. That may look and feel predictive, but it’s about as predictive as saying you’re going to burn your hand if you try to touch that fire. The reason I say it’s not predictive per se is that keyword “if.”
While my readings are not predictive, I do consider them projective. Projections in divination are like projections in a business or financial plan. You’re using known factors and variables in an established algorithm to project into the future what the most probable outcome will be given the present course of events. I also don’t describe my work as psychic because I approach divination as a science and devote the rational analysis one would to science.
As a general policy, I avoid engaging in fortune telling. I do not use tarot to see what we should not see. Rather, I use tarot to help us see what we should see clearer. I work within the filter of seeing only what Divinity permits me to see about your situation.
I use divination the way one might use a lantern– holding it up by your side so that it might illuminate your path.
My regular clientele includes public figures and those in positions that would demand my utmost discretion. I approach measures of confidentiality and security for my divination session clients as I do for my clients as a lawyer. I won’t even disclose that you were ever a client of mine unless I have your consent and permission. I certainly won’t disclose to anyone the contents or what was discussed during your reading session.
The limitation to this confidentiality agreement is if, per my professional judgment, I have reason to believe you or another human being is at imminent risk of physical harm, then at that point, confidentiality breaks and I may disclose the contents of your readings on a need-to-know basis. A court order issued by a judge could also override any confidentiality terms herein.
For Entertainment Purposes
In certain jurisdictions, a reader engaged in practices that legally fall under the scope of “fortune telling or divination” is required to disclose to you that such readings should be for entertainment purposes only, and if such a law applies to your reading, then you are hereby on notice thereof. That being said, divination is a form of my personal spiritual expression that I take very seriously, and I will approach your reading session with the reverence and care I approach all sacred arts. So while I encourage you to treat what I say as being for entertainment purposes only, know that from my end, I do not treat it as entertainment, and for me, it is an expression of my personal gnostic beliefs and my faith.
