Learn to read Tarot -Sunday 12/13/09 @ 1 PM

Image
The Tarot Salon will meet again on Sunday, December 13, 2009. This is an excellent class for beginners as well as practicing readers to learn more about Tarot, fundamentals of interpretation, the landscape method of interpretation, as well as other topics of interest to participants.

The Class has really become a free flowing experience, and while I do have a course outline posted on my site, and am capable of teaching Tarot from the Hermetic perspective, it is also working very well to have students request the topic for the day. Question and answer periods occur throughout the two hour workshop, and as some of those attending are quite will versed in Tarot, as well as other metaphysical paths.. and many have a good background in astrology, the workshop is a rich experience for teacher & students alike.

You may choose to participate at anytime. The course outline is very flexible, so no need to worry if you were not able to attend the first lesson. The fee for the class is $15...…

December First Friday Tarot at The Midnight Sun

Image
The Midnight Sun, located at 1055 Park Street, Jacksonville, Florida 32204, will host mini readings this Friday, December 4, 2009, from 4:00 until  7:00 PM.

The First Friday special offers the answer to One Question for $10. If you have never consulted the Tarot, and are not sure how to ask an answerable question, please take a moment to visit "Help Me Ask My Questions" for a bit more information.

Please know that your participation in the reading process is very important. A Tarot reading is a co-created experience and therefore you have a lot of control over what question is asked, and how much information is revealed.

The readings offered for First Friday are intended to introduce the Tarot to newcomers, or to give a quick insight to regular customers, but not to delve deeply into spiritual matters.

If you would like to make an appointment for a regular Tarot reading, for a private session, you may contact me via my website, Ann George Studios, Inc.

Tarot Class Synopsis

Greetings to All,

For those who were not able to attend the October Class, here is a quick summary of the topics covered, courtesy in part of a very gifted student!

The focus of the class was the "Landscape Method" of interpreting a spread of Tarot cards, rather than trying to decode each card on it's own & then put it in context with the rest of the Tarots on the table.

To do this, I first presented the Minor Arcana by element & discussed the nature of the elements as fields of activity. Then the Minor Arcana were broken into primary groups for interpretation. These groups were the Aces, Tarots numbered 2 through 10, and the Court Cards.

We began to discuss the Minor Arcana and their relationship to signs & planets.. or the sphere of the Zodiac if you prefer. As class was nearing an end, we looked at the Major Arcana just a bit to give an overview of the primary meaning of each card.

This was an intense and fast paced class! Second Sunday in November, I will revi…

Tarot in Troubled Times

Image
I am reprinting an excerpt from an article on my site about the benefits of Tarot readings. I find that sometimes people who really want a reading may feel a bit uncomfortable about scheduling a consultation.

It may seem new, unusual, or a bit frightening to consult a psychic or clairvoyant reader for the first time. Many people do not know what to expect when they order a reading. I encourage all to check references, ask friends for suggestions about ethical consultants, and to be sure that the fees charged seem reasonable.

It is my experience that a Tarot reading is particularly helpful for people looking for direction and validation during troubled times. I hope you find this excerpt helpful. The entire article may be viewed by clicking the title of this post:

"Since the dawn of time, people have sought the advice of an oracle.The desire for clarity and insight, the need to make sense of the turmoil of everyday life and find peace with our place in the world is healthy. The wi…

Tarot Readings for Couples

Image
I recently had a call from a client asking if I did readings for couples. I may not have taken enough time to fully answer that question by phone, so I will take a moment here to offer more information.

In general, I read for one person at a time. Sometimes, that person will want a friend, relative or loved one to be present during the reading. Many people find it helpful to have a friend in attendance to help them remember all that was revealed in the session. As well, sometimes a friend will hear the same words, but apply a slightly different interpretation than the seeker.

The discussion that follows if often beneficial to both parties. However, in those circumstances, my primary purpose is to provide honest answers to the questions asked. If, the seeker asks a question about their relationship with the person in attendance, I will of course continue to provide my most accurate answer possible.

Sometimes, this is uncomfortable for me.... and not always in the best interest of the cou…

Testimonial for Psychic Ann George - Clairvoyant

Image
I am pleased to post an unsolicited testimonial from a satisfied client, and remain quite grateful to all who have worked with me over the years.

Ann,

I am so glad I talked to you today, I don't know how I went so long without an update from you. Today I was reminded how amazingly gifted you are, I felt you were very tuned in, you picked up many things about my situation that no one could ever guess. What you see for the future also is very much in line with things that I have already set in motion.

You are always so honest, I really appreciate that. and you have been right about so many things that did not make sense at the time, but later came to be as you predicted. So lucky for me today, most of what you picked up was positive! and I feel pretty peaceful about the not so positive as well, you helped me to understand him better and accept what is out of my control. Thanks so much, I wish you all the best.

Talk to you again soon!

Your First Tarot Reading - How to Prepare

I had a call from a new client who wanted to schedule their first Tarot reading. If you are in Jacksonville, Florida and would like to come for your first Tarot reading, I am very happy to schedule a session for you. Here are a few tips to help you prepare:

First - It is good to know What Happens In a Reading.
Second - It is helpful to ask
questions
that will give you the direction you need.
Third - I think it is very useful to know something about the values of your Tarot consultant.
Finally - Testimonials from reliable sources (friends you trust, other clients of that reader, or the online testimonials for the psychic.)

A few of the other posts in this blog are written to help you have the most useful Tarot reading possible. Of course, some people just walk right in, take the plunge, have a reading and are very happy with the outcome.

One purpose of consulting the Tarot is to gain clarity, insight, direction. If you are able to spend a few moments preparing your questions, it will help…

Psychic love reading - Tarot for the energetic nature of relationship.

Image
Often when looking into relationships, I find that it is important to address both the physical truth & the energetic truth of emotional/sexual relationship. Sometimes I will be reading for a client who is looking for new love, asking "Show me the best path to right love" perhaps, and even though that question implies the client is single, the very same client reads as a married person.

Examples when this might occur include those who are recently divorced and still physically living in the same home, co-workers who have ended an emotional relationship but still see each other everyday at work and people who really are physically separated but who have not made the emotional disconnect.

It is my nature to read the energetic reality first, which means I tend to see the physically single person with a deep attachment to a relationship partner as a couple regardless of the physical nature of relationship. I have published another article on the energetic nature of relationsh…

Ann George Studios, Inc. has an excellent reputation.

Image
Recently a long time client asked how she could now refer her friends to me. She told me that when she entered my name into the search engines she encountered two outrageous posts about my services on the "Rip Off Report". There she found some abusive posts about my psychic services on "The Rip Off Report"

I was already familiar with this site that allows people to post anonymous, and often very false complaints about business of any kind. As well, the site also must make money with affiliate advertising, because as you roll over a link, there is a little pop up ad that displays the very kind of service the consumer is complaining about. I did my due diligence to report to that sites web host that the information posted about me was false, and defamatory

I had also received an e-mail from a company informing me of a very defamatory report at that site & offering to "repair" my reputation for a fee. I suspect that the company offering help is in leag…

Fears About Seeing the Future - Concerns for a First Reading

I had a very interesting conversation yesterday with a woman who was considering having her first Tarot reading. She shared a concern that I have heard over the years, and I want to blog about this topic while our conversation is still fresh in my mind.

The concern she voiced was: "If one does see the future, can what is revealed become a self-fulfilling prophecy?" I hope my reply yesterday was thorough & useful. Here are more thoughts on the subject.

Wikipedia has an excellent article on the idea of a self fulfilling prophecy which includes the following:

"In other words, a prophecy declared as truth when it is actually false may sufficiently influence people, either through fear or logical confusion, so that their reactions ultimately fulfill the once-false prophecy."

Now before I go into the specifics of my reply, I must first say that I am not a prophet. I do not ever intend that the readings I offer be taken as final, absolute, dictatorial.. or in any other …

Psychic Scams - More thoughts on a sensitive subject

Image
I have reviewed my past two articles on psychic scams, and double checked the information posted on the links I included in the last post.

I notice that one post seems to take a bit too much pleasure in calling one reader a fraud. The evidence of the "fraud" is that the reader made a mistake during a public reading.

Mistakes happen. No reader is 100% accurate, 100% of the time. To expect a human being to always perfectly see the past, present of future of the live or lives of another is just not reasonable.

Even the best reader, with the best intention will find some clients difficult to read. As well, those who come to a session to play "trick the psychic" make it impossible for a reader to see clearly.

For example, if you already know the answer to the question you are about to ask a professional reader, why bother asking? What purpose could that serve. (If you are seeking deeper insight into the how, or the why of something.. seeking clarity, then of course ask th…

Tarot Consultations Only - Ethics of a Professional Reader

Image
I have received several emails lately from new visitors to my website asking if I will perform rituals for them.

In particular, I have been asked to do rituals for success, to reunite lost loves, to bring money, and to break up relationships.

I do not now, nor have I ever offered services of this kind. I do not do "work" and have published many articles written to help new clients better understand the the power to change our lives rests with in each of us.

We are the magic, we create the future, we can change so much about our lives when we have some clarity, insight and direction. An ethical Tarot consultation can indeed offer that clarity and an out picturing of the future outcome of our actions.

I provide Clairvoyant Tarot readings by appointment. The fees for my services are clearly stated, and don't change. You receive the reading you pay for, one which offers many benefits.

I have written many articles, some in this blog, others on my site, that address the nature &…

The Sacred Trust - Ethics of a Professional Tarot Consultant

Image
Recently, I had a curious friend ask me a question about a my reading process, and in particular about the kinds of things that occur in a reading.

I realized that it may be time again to post more information about my values as a reader so that others can know my thoughts on the Sacred Trust. Those words may sound dramatic, or self important, which is not at all my intention.

Rather, the words "Sacred Trust" reflect my deep sense of gratitude to the oracle of Tarot, my respect for the seekers, and an abiding commitment to keep the confidences entrusted to me by my clients.

I mention my gratitude to Tarot as it is this mystic device, this ancient book of mirrors that made it possible for me to gain mastery over my clairvoyant "gift", which I assure you, when running wild is no gift at all. Unbridled clairvoyance in my experience was a kaleidoscope of information that served no one.

It is the Tarot that made it possible to serve the public. For me, the Tarot is the …

Tarot & Inter-dependance: Why the Question Matters

Image
If you are coming for your first live reading with me please take a moment to review the Tarot section of my web site. I published those articles to offer new clients a clear introduction to my process so that they may understand what I think I am doing, what I am able to offer, and what my limitations are. ( I am not good at finding lost objects, lost pets, nor lost people. ) This information helps me to be more comfortable when we finally sit down together to do a reading because I know that you have had a chance to "meet" me before we begin.

A truth that is revealed in the reading process is that we are co-creating our future. Every choice we make, word we speak, action we take will affect our future. We are always making choices. When we come to the reading table, the answers revealed during the session reflect past acts and decisions. The answers that I am able to offer are a direct reply to the primary question you ask.

Tarot readings address both the internal and extern…

Live Sessions by Appointment Only today - 3/27/09

Greetings All,

I am not going to be in store at the Midnight Sun today, however, if you need a reading, please call (904) 993-7466. With sufficient notice, I should be able to come to the shop for you today.

Past Lives are often revealed in a Tarot Reading.

Recently, several clients have had past lives revealed during their Tarot readings. The questions they asked were not about past lives at all, but about critical present life relationship experiences. This seemingly unexpected revelation is not at all unusual.

In fact, many times when people are having powerful relationships with each other, when their lives intertwine at critical moments, when their bond seems to transcend the expected, or the "rational", they are experiencing what I describe as a "past life return." It seems that some of us somehow choose to be born again and again with each other.

This phenomenon is easily seen in the case of enlightened masters of established spiritual traditions where past lives and reincarnation is a natural part of their spiritual world view. Teachers and students of these traditions form a connect by agreement based on devotion that enables them to incarnate in this world in proximity to each other for the benefit of all k…

Tarot in Sacred Space

Image
The "Tarot Room" at the Midnight Sun is so lovely that people often stop in just to experience the glow.

This sacred space I am fortunate to use as a reading room has been blessed with the right intention and action of Yoga teachers, Kirtans, healing workshops and the good, sweet loving energy of the people who make this wonderful shop possible.

I very much enjoyed being present on Saturday, and was happy to be able to provide some clarity, insight and validation to those who chose to experience the benefits of Tarot for the first time.

I hope you will feel welcome to call if you would like to have a live reading on a day other than Saturday. I am happy to come to the shop between Noon & Five PM if need be. Please call my office at (904) 993-7466 to schedule an in person session. Readings by telephone are also available if you prefer not to drive. When working by telephone, I am also working in sacred space, reserved only for that purpose. In fact, you may enjoy this litt…

Consulting the Tarot - the importance of the question

It sometimes happens that clients come for their first reading and are a bit surprised when I ask them for a question. I suppose the word "reading" does imply that I will be able to see their future, reveal influences around them, events that are at hand... and while this is true, or possible.. I prefer not to read that way.

I strongly prefer to use the Tarot to provide clarity, direction, and insight that will empower people to make the best decisions possible under the present circumstances, or to find ways to improve those circumstances so that their lives move in the direction they prefer.

When I offer readings, I trust that my clients are sitting with me willing to be open to the reading process. Now, I still have the skeptical few clients who want to "test" the psychic, or ask questions to see if I am "real" or not. This puts me at a distinct disadvantage as I am sure we, the reader & the seeker, are co-creating the session.

I work very well wit…

Tarot Card Readings - What to expect in your live session.

If you are coming for your first reading with me, I hope you will take a moment to review some articles that I think are very important to ensure that you have a good experience.

Every reader is different, each bringing special skills to the table. I am a question specific reader. By that I mean to say that I offer you the greatest benefit when you ask me a direct question designed to provide you clarity, insight and direction toward a goal.
Here is a link to an article about this style of reading & the philosophy behind the method: "Tarot readings & Seeker's Questions."

Another article you might find helpful is this one, which helps you to understand the "What Happens in s Reading - The Spread of Cards" during your session.

One of the delights in returning to reading live is that I am able to share with clients the beauty & power of the images that reflect their life experience, nature, and future outcomes. I often use the Archeon Tarot because the vis…
