Here is a very interesting site that lists many different readers available by phone and their prices per minute. I am surprised to see that some readers charge as much as $16 a minute! and they apparently have many favorable reviews.
Just a quick note for those who wonder about my prices. I still charge $35 for a fifteen minute reading. This session enables the answer to one, or as many as three simple questions.
The half hour reading is $65 and offers the opportunity to ask four to six questions.
For an in depth look at all areas of your life, for complex issues, or for those who have not had a reading for many years, I offer the one hour reading for $125.
Some years ago, a client suggested that I raise my prices, at least to charge $40 for fifteen minutes and $75 for the half hour. At some point in the future, I may need to make that change.
My value is still that everyone should be able to afford a reading, should be able to access insight, direction, validation, and clarity when needed. For some of us, $5 is still quite a bit of money, for others... this is not true.
I also know that there is a mind-set in our culture.. that if something is valuable, then it will be expensive. I serve those who are able to discern value regardless of price.
One of the most interesting discussion was about revealing the full, truthful answer in a reading. One reader present was very interested in when & how to reveal what might be disturbing or unfortunate news. A lively discussion ensued, and the consensus was that a Tarot reader must share all that is revealed in the reading. Editing information to protect the seeker would be an intrusion of the ego of the reader, and therefore, an interruption of the pure flow of wisdom that occurs in the process.
This conversation moved again to the topic of asking useful questions. It was decided that encouraging the seeker to ask questions could give the reader confidence that on a psycho-spiritual level, the seeker would be emotionally prepared for the answer, what ever it may be. As well, that during the reading process, the Tarot can serve as a filter, or a second witness, helping to ensure that the limits are imposed by the seeker on the depth of answer to be revealed.
While this idea may seem unusual to some, those who have read often know that the Tarot is a perfect book of mirrors, able to reflect back to the seeker the information needed to make an informed, or empowered decision. The Tarot is also useful to help determine time frames, important personalities at work in the life of the seeker, as pertains to the question, as well as the probable outcome of a situation given that the seeker continue to follow the path they are on at the time of the reading.
The desire to please, to be comforting, to be right... all these desires must be abandoned by the reader to ensure that only the information the seeker needs, and has paid for, is revealed. Please note that this post is just a recap to highlight some of the most interesting topics discussed, there are far more aspects to each of the topics mentioned than can be discussed in this post.
