What happens in a Tarot Card Reading?

Sometimes people are very nervous when they come for their first reading, in part because they really do not know what to expect. While each reader is different, and each reading is different, if you have an ethical consultant, then there are several truths that should apply to each and every session.

The first truth is that you are in control. The Tarot is a vibrational tool, a picture book of archetypes and truths about the experiences we all face as spiritual beings in a material world. Although we are unique, life does present us all the same ultimate challenges.

We all face birth, death, illness, victory, success, loss, love - of course the list of what we share can go on and on. What is important is that  each of us will react (vibrate) to these experiences in our own unique way.

There will also be times when we feel lost, adrift, in need of guidance, clarity, insight and direction. It is in these times that Tarot is a most perfect tool to help you find your way toward the bright future you dream of.

I do not intend to oversimplify or demystify one of the most powerful oracles we have... but I do want to re-present it so that Tarot moves out of the shadows and into the light of reason, becoming a tool we are confident in using as we realize that is is a book of mirrors that can show our everyday minds glimpses of our highest mind.. our pure nature, our true purpose.

The Tarot, in the hands of a skilled consultant, will create a landscape in reply to your questions. Should you have a reading with me, then what will happen is as follows:

  • You will come to the reading (either live or by phone) with your questions ready. Some people are surprised to find that bringing specific questions is the best way to proceed. I liken it to asking someone to help you find something. It is important to tell your helper what you are looking for before you begin the search. 
  • You will ask your question out loud.  
  • Now.. the most important part of the reading begins. I will ask you to "show me" by which I mean "visualize" the answers to questions that come to my mind when I "look" at the matter you bring to the table. While you are visualizing, I am shuffling the cards.  It is your relaxation and visualization that is critical for the following reasons:
    • When you share your thoughts with me, you are giving me the necessary permission to look into your portion of the Akashic Record. 
    • By visualizing, I am able to not only receive information you would otherwise tell me, but also to see with you the important aspects to any situation. For example, I am able to see the expression of your true loves' face when you tell that you are unhappy, feel your instinctive reaction as you enter your work environment, or to peek over your shoulder at your resume. 
    • The Tarot as a vibratory tool, responds to the energy of your thoughts. As I shuffle and you visualize a combination of cards arranges itself in such a way that the answer to your question is revealed. 
  • When you feel as if you have shown me everything you feel is important to get a complete and accurate answer to your question, I will stop shuffling and spread the cards on the table. ( I do not "throw" sacred objects.. so I don't "throw" cards.)
  • It is at this time that the answers to your question are revealed. 

As each client is different, there is no way for me to explain how I see what I see and how I know what I know. My knowing will always remain a mystery to me. Part of the answer is that you showed me. Part of the answer is that we, the three of us, draw down the answer as we create, by agreement, a sacred vortex of knowing. (Yes.. I did just trip over the edge of mystic there.) 

What is important to understand is that in this process, I often serve as a conduit to help your deepest, inner self reunite with your most exalted spiritual self as we by pass the ordinary mind. Many times people feel validated and affirmed after a reading, and this is what many come for. 

Many times we will see the future, always as an outcome of actions you have taken in the past, thoughts you hold in the present, and choices you intend to make. 

Many times clients come to see their past in a new light, to gain understanding about the meaning of past events, lost loves, or in some cases to reconnect (when possible) with the energy of lost loved ones. Some even come to see past lives. 

All of these things can be seen in a clairvoyant Tarot consultation.  I do not know what happens with other readers.  Myself, I do not read on a card by card basis as I know that Tarot creates a landscape answer, each card being qualified by other cards present on the table.

I will ask to know the sign you are born under. Fire answers for a Fire sign woman have a different tone of voice than do Fire answers for a Water sign woman, so to provide the best interpretation of the spread, as well as to see clearly, knowing your sign is very helpful. 

I will always tell you the truthful answer to any question you ask. If you are afraid of a particular answer, then don't ask the question - it is that simple. I will not surprise you by answering questions you did not ask. Should such an unasked answer be present, I will ask your permission before revealing what may be the true answer to the question the mind will not allow, but the one that the heart seeks. 

Readings are available by appointment only. Contact information as well as other useful articles may be found on my web site.

I hope you find this short post helpful.

Tarot Readings for Court Cases & Legal Matters

As a professional clairvoyant Tarot consultant, which is the best way to describe my work, I am asked to see the outcome, or future, of many kinds of events, choices, circumstances and relationships.

I am willing to answer any question asked. The rule is that I must tell you the truthful answer to the best of my ability, no matter what that answer may be. I have learned over time to deliver very painful truths as gently as possible.

I have also learned that your dollar is best spent seeing the outcome of events over which you have some authority. 

This is particularly true when it comes to Legal Matters in general and Court Cases in particular. This does not mean that I cannot provide assistance to clients who are facing legal matters. 

There are many excellent questions to ask a reader if you are headed for legal trouble of any kind. Some of those questions are:

Show me the out come of choosing __ (attorney or law firm name here )__ to represent me in this matter.

Show me the best way to proceed to have as peaceful as divorce as is possible.

Show me the outcome of filing a lawsuit against ______________ for ________________.

Show me what actions I can take to ensure that I am victorious in this matter. 

Show me the best way to proceed under these new circumstances. 

All these questions are useful to ask as they provide you with an answer that directs you to to take an action that will benefit you.  The difficulty for most any reader who seeks to provide accurate answers to court case questions is the variables, the people who are also involved in that matter and over whom you have no control.

Therefore, the most difficult question to answer will always be: “Show me the outcome of my day in court.” or  “Show me if I will win the case.”  

In complex court cases, people are always the variables for a reader, particularly in cases where there are two parties in dispute, each having their own attorneys, in front of a judge and perhaps in front of a jury, perhaps with witnesses to be called.
As you can see from this short list of personalities involved, each with the free will to change their minds at the last minute, cast their vote in spite of evidence to the contrary, or to misunderstand evidence, fail to pay attention, or have made up their minds in advance, it can be almost impossible for a reader to always be accurate when answering “Show me if I will win the case.” .

On any given day, any person can act against their nature. They may be ill, they may have suffered a personal loss, they may not like you for no reason at all, or they might bring forward evidence that you did not expect. 

While it may be difficult to wait for the outcome, especially as many court cases drag on “forever,” I suggest you save your money and wait to see the outcome for yourself.

I am not refusing service. It is the case that many clients report that I was indeed accurate in seeing the outcome of their cases. In some instances, my accuracy has been spot on.

(Of course, my accuracy is always a reflection of the willingness of the seeker to fully participate in the session. I am not claiming that I am amazing, but when we work together, amazing insights are revealed.)

This idea of waiting to see is also good for many medical issues. In this century, it can be determined quite quickly if a woman is pregnant, if one has an illness and so on. 

The best use of Tarot is to gain clarity, direction and insight. Tarot is an excellent tool to explore the future of personal relationships, help you  make the best career choices, address relocation concerns, and is priceless when you are working with issues of personal and spiritual development. 

Tarot also works very well to reveal past lives, to help us connect with ancestors, and to discover the best way to heal, to empower, to find freedom, to find peace, to come to acceptance with the journey of our lives. 

I hope this post is helpful. It is only my opinion. Other readers may have a different point of view. I have found it a kindness to let me clients know my point of view before the make their appointments. 

Thank you,

Ann George


Psychic Phone Readings - How To Find A Good Phone Psychic

If you are curious about psychic readings, and would like to have a phone reading (an option many of my local clients choose) a quick search of the web will reveal so many choices! How do you choose?

Here are a few suggestions:
  • Choose a psychic phone reader who is in private practice. 
  • Choose a psychic reader who offers a flat, fixed rate for the services provided.
  • Choose a psychic reader who offers an ethics or a values statement on their website.
  • Choose a psychic reader that has a website that offers you useful information. 
  • Choose a reader who is happy to take your call, provide additional information about his or her services, experience, and check to see if they can answer the kind of questions you have. (I, for example, cannot find lost persons, nor lost objects.) 
  • Beware of readers who promise to solve all problems, reunite lovers, bring wealth. 
  • Choose a psychic reader who publishes their photo on line.
  • Choose a price that you are comfortable with.
  • I invite you to avoid psychics that offer "Free" readings, or the first ____ minutes free. Qualified clairvoyants, psychics and mediums provide valuable services... just as you do when you do go to work. Who works for free? Either someone who does not value their ability, or perhaps someone who is "setting the hook" to get you to begin to spend more money than you intended.
Are phone readings accurate? 

For many clients, phone readings are more accurate than the live experience. How can this be?  A qualified reader is not reading the physical body, they are reading the Akashic record. Your physical body is the vehicle that brings your voice, and thus your mind to meet the mind of the reader. Ideally, your reading is a co-created experience where both seeker and reader are opening the doors of that Akashic Record to see your past, present and possible future outcomes. 

For some, calling from the privacy of their own home is very comforting and helps them to relax. For those with a busy schedule, avoiding heavy traffic, stress and extra time on the road, makes psychic readings by phone the best choice. Many people, while confident in consulting the Tarot, a psychic or medium, want to remain anonymous about that choice. Psychic phone readings provide that security. 

The important points to ensure accuracy in any reading are:
  • Choose a qualified, experienced reader you feel comfortable talking too.
  • Ask an empowered question. There are numerous articles on this blog to help you do just that, or you can visit an article about Psychic Questions on my site.
  • If you don't understand the answer to your question, ask for clarity. 
  • Be open minded and honest. I will assume that any question you ask is coming from a place of truth and is asked for your greatest good. Can you trick me? Of course. Can you prevent me from giving you an accurate reading? Of course. Psychics don't "force" doors open, a good reader seeks to be of service. 
  • If you choose a live session, don't give away too much information. Readers who keep you talking may listen to you share your experience for 10 minutes of the appointment. (this can get very expensive if you choose a by the minute service!) and you have already given them both a biased insight, and a good deal of information to repeat back to you.
I know many ethical, talented, generous and accurate psychics, mediums, Tarot card readers, energy healers and clairvoyants. They all work because it is their calling, gift, or inescapable karma.... but it is my experience that they first seek to do no harm.

Sometimes, it is actually best to ask your friends who they use! Clarity, insight, direction from an objective third party can be a priceless asset as you craft the future of your dreams.



Psychic readings, black auras, demons working against you & when to walk away.

I recently received an email from a woman who wrote to ask my opinion of her encounter with a "psychic reader." Here is her letter:

"I have recently gone to see a psychic and was told I had a dark purple almost black aura. They told me they would help cleanse me.  I went back for part of my cleanse and she told me she was looking to see where this negative energy is originating from. On my third visit, I was told I have demons working against me.  I really would like a second opinion on this because for them to help me it is going to cost $3,500 and thats a lot, so i really want to see if there really are demons. If i could schedule a reading that would be great. Hope to hear from you soon."

Here is my reply:

"Please, do not believe the "psychic" who has told you all these horrible things. The pattern you are reporting is a traditional scam that is used by unethical "psychics". Please do not give them any more money! There will always be a "reason" they need more.

Even if you hare having hard times.... and it seems as if your are cursed... or plagued.... and you want a cleanse, a legitimate energy healing should cost no more than a visit to the doctor.. Reiki healers charge between $35 to $125 per session, and that healing is designed to restore your energy body to a natural balance.

The aura is in a state of flux, it is a rainbow body of change. I have never really seen one "stuck" on a particular color. Regardless, you are the one who will heal yourself. You are the one who has the power to  learn to protect yourself. Do not be afraid of this person/these people. Fear is what they feed on. Some people spend tens of thousands of dollars under the influence of  "psychics" who are great manipulators.

I am happy to read for you. To ensure you have a good reading, here are some articles designed introduce my services to be sure we are a good fit:


As well, you may enjoy and article I wrote:

I started pouring meditation candles, healing affirmation candles and making aura cleanse incense as well as protection and prosperity incenses,  in response to just this kind of bullying so that people would be able to use meditation candles, incense and affirmations to move through obstacles. 

Wishing you all the best!" 

While this was not a thorough reply to all issues brought up by this letter ( demonic possession, aura cleansing, energy healing etc. ) I publish it now for those who are also having a similar experience. 

There are many qualified energy healers in the greater Jacksonville area as well as in St. Augustine. You can usually find their ads in Natural Awakenings magazine, or simply ask friends who use alternative medicine. 

I hope you find this post helpful.

The Deviant Moon Tarot • A review by Ann George

The Deviant Moon Tarot by Patrick Valenza
A review by Ann George • Professional Tarot Consultant

This is a remarkably powerful tool for the experienced Tarot consultant. For best use, the reader should have a thorough understanding of the origin of interpretation of Tarot from the Hermetic or Golden Dawn perspective.

With a good grasp of the Tree of Life and the deeper meaning of Tarots, in particular the importance of the Sephira, the Elements and the Astrology of each card, the reader is given a key to empower the seeker to open doors to his or her inner mind in a most profound way.

This deck is for the brave, the mystic, the healer, shaman, and all who are willing to look deep within to see the why of their behaviour. This deck does not offer the traditional visual cues a novice reader might depend on to interpret a spread. Rather, in a wise and provocative manner, the artist superimposes visual images that almost contradict the expected imagery for the Major and Minor Arcana.

It is my experience that when these images are woven together in response to the seeker’s question, the subconscious workings of mind and spirit are revealed in a uniquely empowering way. The landscape of reality, of awakening created by the spread is breath taking. 

This deck allows the seeker to reach deep into Mind/Spirit and face demons, fears, joy, anguish and the magic that each of us hold and that each of us allow to hold ourselves back from reaching our fullest potential. 
This deck is striking in every way. Visually profound, but not for those who prefer pastels. It is a deck for spiritual warriors on path to enlightenment and freedom. It is for readers with the courage and skill to translate deep, perhaps disturbing or intimate insights in a gentle, yet fully powerful way.

There are many reviews online that talk about card stock, card size and such. I find that this deck shuffles differently each use. The stock is first class, as are inks and colors. I cherish this Tarot as one of the few that throws open the doors of perception.

“Wander down the old city alleys... in midnight mists... peer into corners to see who is sleeping there, loving there, crying in the inner shadow of the adult mind with the Deviant Moon. Travel where the Akashic record opens easily, as if it has finally been asked to dance after sitting too long against the blank wall of limitation and cowardice.”

Love Readings • How to Get the Most a Psychic Session

One of the great truths of love is that at some point in time, emotional/sexual love based on desire of the other will hurt. Many people seek the advice of a psychic, clairvoyant, or even a spell caster when they are in emotional pain during a love relationship.

Sometimes, in an effort to relieve that pain, in an anxiety to have closure, a client will want to know if their beloved will divorce them, if their beloved understands how badly they have behaved, if their beloved will return.

All of these questions are coming from a passive point of view. The active point of view is to ask:
"Show me the outcome of leaving my partner."
"Show me the outcome of waiting for my partner to return."

If one is in pain..... then it is far easier to take charge of one's life and make decisions that are healing, empowering and forward moving. Waiting for someone else to make everything OK by coming home, or promising true love, is not an empowered path.

I post this now because I am faced with a dilemma. I do want to read for all my clients, however, in high stress situations where a relationship is in trouble, reading every two or three days is not at all useful. It is best to read once a week at the most. Better still to read every two or three weeks.

If nothing changes, nothing changes. The power to heal a relationship, if one can be healed, lies with the Seeker and not with the Beloved.

If the Seeker is truly courageous, the questions will be:
"Show me why I choose unavailable partners."
"Show me the best way to resolve my relationship for the greatest good of all."
"Show me the best way to forgive my partner."

I am not a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, I am a clairvoyant Tarot reader, I am a medium, best as a past life medium. I have published extensively on my site about the benefits of reading, what happens in a reading, how to ask questions and my own code of ethics.

While it is often true that readings can provide a tremendous healing, great emotional relief, they cannot resolve inner emotional issues such as panic attacks, tremendous anxiety, or other conditions best treated by a professional who is skilled in the social healing arts.

I respect and am grateful that clients have come to trust me, have confidence in what I see, and also understand the the future is in flux. All outcomes are subject to change based on how each of chooses to live.

In a turbulent relationship, where each party finds their feelings changing on an hourly or daily basis..... the Tarot, or any other kind of reading my not be the best tool for comfort.

It is at these crucial times that people are at their most vulnerable. If you are in such a crisis, please remember, you have the power to change your life, to affirm a new future. A good reader will help you do that.


Tarot Readings • The Hardest Things to See

Many time times clients want to know what someone else is thinking or feeling. Sometimes, particularly people who are in love, or are in a loving relationship, will want to know about the beloved.

I have been asked many unanswerable questions such as:

  • "What does he/she think of me?"
  • "How does she/he feel about the letter I wrote?"
  • "When will he/she call me?"
  • "Why does she/he not understand __________ (what I am trying to say) ?"
  • "Does he/she love me?"
  • "Why did he/she say that?" 

The reasons I name these questions as unanswerable are many. First, at any given moment, a person may feel angry toward you, and then in five minutes, remember all the kindness you have done and feel loving toward you. Trying to accurately report another persons thoughts or feelings about a particular situation is very difficult. 

Further, there is no real power to be had in the answer, no peace. The better question, the better way to get your needs met, is to ask questions that are similar to these:
  • "Show me the outcome of trying to establish a relationship with ________."
  • "Show me the outcome of mailing my letter."
  • "Show me the outcome of waiting for _______ to call" or better still
  • "Show me the best way to heal my relationship with _________ if possible."
  • "Show me the best way to communicate with _________ at this time."
  • "Show me the outcome of continuing to love ____________."
  • "Show me the best way to understand/support my___________  at this time."
The purpose of a reading, in my opinion, is to provide your clarity, direction and insight. The purpose is to see the future, the outcome of actions you have already taken, or are thinking of taking, that will affect your life. 

We teach people how to treat us, and sometimes, when our need for clarity or closure becomes overwhelming, our insistence on "knowing" what is happening actually creates discord and pain in a relationship.

Tarot, as I understand it, serves the seeker by shedding light on matters over which they have control. Please do not leave this article with the misapprehension that Tarot cannot help you find right love, heal a relationship, make healthy choices when choosing a life partner, as a consultation most certainly can provide you all that information. 

The point is that  Tarot works best when the seeker uses it to shine light on their path... and not to peek into the private world of another. 

One of the most challenging questions I am faced with is "Does he/she love me?" Each person defines love differently. Sometimes your partner may love you very, very much - however, the way they understand love, express love and expect love may be nothing like what you think is right or proper loving.

This doesn't mean you are less loved - it means that the kind of loving you are receiving is not the kind of loving that is natural or comfortable to you.  As well, love alone is not always enough to sustain a good relationship. Time together, shared values, shared goals, similar tastes in food, art, music....... all these kinds of things are important to have "love."

I have published several articles on my site that are designed to help you ask useful questions, and I hope you enjoy them.

Thank you for your kind attention to my article.
