This page contains answers to some Frequently Asked Questions.
Briefly, the Tarot is a deck of 78 cards, usually picture cards, which are divided into two sections called the major arcana and the minor arcana. The minor arcana is divided up even further into suits, similar to a deck of regular playing cards. Each card has it's own meanings both right side up as well as upside down in addition to other meanings it might carry by it's number or suit. If it sounds confusing here, a good Tarot reader can put it in perspective so that it makes sense to you.
The cards are shuffled and placed on a table in a particular pattern called a layout or a spread. Each place in the spread also has a meaning for the card in that particular position.
The reader acts much like an interpreter to give you the information in a way that actually makes sense.
The history of Tarot is really quite mysterious. Their exact origins aren't certain and neither is the original number of cards in the deck. As such, they continue their evolution today.
The Astro-Dice are a set of three, twelve sided dice, containing symbols of the Zodiac, planets and houses. You ask them a question and they are then read as a collective interpretation of all three.
A dream dictionary gives generic meanings for only a few dream themes. A dream interpretation helps interpret YOUR dream so that it makes sense to YOU!
You may want to prepare a list of questions before your reading. That way, you'll make sure that everything that you wanted to ask was covered. However, sometimes an answer from one question leads to another question on it's own, so leave room for these too.
The tools that I work with are limited in some ways. So, if you're looking for specific names, dates, places, lucky numbers and things along that line, the Tarot and Astro-Dice can't help you.
Please don't play "test the psychic". If you do, you'll be wasting both your time as well as your money. I'm not a mind reader and both the Tarot Cards and Astro-Dice were designed to have specific questions asked of them.
If you're asking questions about health, remember that I'm not a medical professional and I don't play doctor. Truly, if you're concerned about your health, then contact someone qualified in that field. They don't do my job and I don't do theirs. The same applies to legal, financial and any other type of questions where you can find a qualified professional in that field.
Frequently the Tarot cards solidify what you already know or suspect. The way a mirror reflects your image, they can reflect your own inner knowledge. Quite frankly, don't expect a lot of surprises. The more specific you are with your questions, the more specific your answers will be.
People ask a variety of questions of course, but the most common categories are about: romance, success, career, money, moving, family, travel, school, spirituality, and past lives. You don't have to limit yourself to those of course. Aside from death, you can ask about pretty much anything.
NO! There are as many different reading techniques as there are readers.
For me, the difference is that a fortune teller uses tools and a psychic doesn't. Over the phone, my tools of choice are the Tarot and Astro-Dice. There are times when my innate psychic abilities come through, and if it happens during your reading, I'll let you know. However, since it doesn't happen all the time, I don't call myself a psychic.
The Tarot and Astro-Dice, readings generally last either a half an hour or an hour. Sometimes however, especially if the client is in a crisis situation the reading can last much longer. Dream interpretations generally last less than a half an hour, but sometimes they too go longer. If they last less than a half an hour, the client has the choice of filling in the rest of the time with questions for the Astro-Dice and/or the Tarot.
All phone readings are charged to either your Visa or MasterCard at the start of your reading. When your bill comes, the charge appears as TARSCO/Fortunes Told.
You can schedule your reading via e-mail, or simply call directly (303) 660-4678. If you schedule via e-mail, you'll get a response either confirming your requested appointment, or asking you to choose a different time Monday - Friday from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. Mountain Daylight Time.
When you call in and ask for your reading, I will get the pertinent payment information from you. After it is cleared, your reading begins! Generally, I do a specific spread for each individual question.
As you know, all readings are done over the phone. To keep prices reasonable, ALL phone charges are on your dime. That means that YOU make the call. Long distance and other types of charged phone calls are NOT returned and collect calls are NOT accepted.
