Reading Tarot : The Landscape Method - Spread & Purpose

by Ann George, Professional Tarot Consultant 

Tarot card readings differ in kind. Many people are quite used to seeing the “card by card” reading in which the consultant reads each card as it is turned, telling the client the meaning of that card as pertains to that client, or the clients question. 

I do not offer card by card sessions. Instead I allow the Tarot to serve as landscape of information as I lay out 16 cards for each question.  

Although I am able to “see” or to know the answer as you are asking the question, it is critical to me that I find all the information available to provide you clarity, direction & insight.  

I find that the 15 card spread as shown by the Golden Dawn is very useful to provide insight into the past, present and future as pertains to your question and ultimately to your well being. 

This presentation of Tarot will be laid out after we have finished the visualization of all matters relating to your question. 

I do not need you to speak to tell me the particulars of your issue because I will be shuffling the Tarots while you are visualizing the “back story” of your concerns. In this way the Tarot, which is in fact an incredibly sensitive book of wisdom, or book of mirrors, will respond to the  frequency of your thinking. 

The Tarots will then present a very specific response to your issue and will validate and clarify what I “see” as the answer to your question.  I am a natural clairvoyant - or psychic - and will have additional insights as a result of your permission for me to look  with you. The Tarot serves as a spring board to the Akashic, and helps bring focus and perspective. 

Sometimes clients will want to know the meaning of a particular card during their session. It is almost impossible for me to stop reading to explain the interpretation of the card. If you choose to ask again after the session is over, I will try to explain the card in general. 

Each Tarot has at least 10 possible interpretations all of which are affected by the cards on either side & each of those cards also has 10 possible interpretations. It is the richness of meaning and the interdependence of cards that combine to form a unique insight for you. 

It is also wise not to try to read the cards yourself. Many people will see the Death card, (card of Scorpio) or the Devil card (card of Capricorn) show up in their session and react to the writing on the bottom. Neither card is limited to the printed description and so the Tarot you see may not mean anything frightening at all. 

It is best to relax and pay attention to the answer to your question as often there is a lot to learn. If you are relaxed you will better absorb the answer. Some people use their phones to record the session while others take notes. Whichever method of remembering you prefer is fine. 

I must say that sometimes on playback your reading will sound quite different than the one you remember hearing in my office. This is because we create a unique vortex when we ask and enter the Akashic. While you may not go with me, your presence (physical or spiritual) is key to the answer. 

It is also important to say that if you are physically present, or able to be present by phone, your attention is what activates the session. 

In summary, all readings I offer will be both psychic* and Tarot readings. In this way I am able to bring all resources to bear on your concerns. 

Thank you for your kind attention to my post.

To clarify further terms:  

* Psychic readings or clairvoyant readings are essentially the same type of reading. The words psychic & clairvoyant may be used interchangeably, although most people are familiar with the word psychic. 

Defined by Miriam Webster, one meaning of the word psychic is “: sensitive to nonphysical or supernatural forces and influences : marked by extraordinary or mysterious sensitivity, perception, or understanding.” 

Clairvoyance is defined as being “ able to see beyond the range of ordinary perception claims to be clairvoyant.” Clairvoyant simply means clear seeing.”


Why Do People Buy Psychic Readings by Phone?

The simplest answer to that question may not be obvious. Many people live where an “in person” psychic reading is not allowed within the city or county limits. They must buy phone readings.

About 10 years ago I was very interested in moving to a mountain town in Tennessee ago. I love the mountains there and hoped to open a small shop.  I stopped in for a visit with friends and made inquiries. 

As it turned out, at that time most small towns & small cities in the south eastern part of Tennessee did not allow psychics to operate a business in an office, storefront nor from home by phone!

I could not work in Chattanooga, Soddy Daisy, Signal Mountain nor in Red Bank, Tennessee. Psychics were also barred from working in small towns in north eastern Georgia as well. 

When I first moved to Jacksonville, Florida there was a zoning code that prevented me from opening an office in the nicer parts of town. 

I could not have a studio in shopping districts, malls, strip malls nor office buildings. I was restricted to an “outskirts of town” zoning that was not visually welcoming. I am very glad that zoning restriction was lifted. 

Another reason many people choose  the benefits of a clairvoyant (psychic) reading by phone is that the consultant they have used for many years may moved, to continue to use his or her services they must work by phone. Here is an article to help you choose a good phone psychic.

In some cases there is no one in town to choose. I recently had a conversation with someone who had gone to visit the only psychic in her town. She had a very bad experience and did not have a reading with a professional seer. She had a reading with a con artist. 

It is frustrating for me to hear stories of people being taken advantage of by tricksters, cold readers, and the wicked who are observant enough to do a good “cold reading”. These con artist are able to serve up just enough information that “hits home” to awaken our natural desire to be close to the mystic, the wonder of the unfolding universe.  

The customer who sees a con artist walks away unhappy, maybe frightened, and often several hundreds of dollars the poorer because that customer did not have a frame of reference for what is possible when entering the mystic. 

I will continue to publish articles about what to expect from a reading, how to have a good reading, and how to find an ethical reader. You may find some useful articles on those topics right on this blog.

Another reason people choose to purchase phone readings, whether they are buying psychic, clairvoyant, Tarot, or mediumship readings is that it saves the client so much time & money to work by phone.

In my city, which is constantly under construction, it takes some people as long as 45 minutes to get to my office.  A phone reading can be minutes away (although it is best to schedule your session at least a day or two ahead).

If you are calling for a reading, you are most likely at home, or in a safe & comfortable place where you have control over your immediate environment. If you are calm, you will be best able to focus on your question, and think about the bits and pieces you need to remember so that we can find your answer. 

I believe ethical readings are co-created. We both participate in finding that “spot’ in the Akashic where your future is being created. 

I am very happy to have two locations in Jacksonville to best serve you if you prefer an in person session.  Both offices are very safe & comfortable. If you live nearby please feel welcome to stop in my Five Points office on Walk-In Thursdays from Noon to 5:00pm. 

I have an office in Murray Hiill  that is open most every other day. You do need to make an appointment to see me in that office.  

Please call the Studio to schedule either a phone or a private session. Please leave a message if I am unable to answer  904-993-7466. I have been working by phone since 2000 and am very pleased to say I have clients all over the country, and some over seas. 

Finally, phone readings offer the same benefit as an “in person” consultation. 

If you stop to think about, you will realize that there is nothing in the physical body we need for a reading. If we can connect mind to mind through talking and listening, we can see the past, present or future. 

In closing: 

I am fortunate to have one of the most secure and well respected online agents to handle my transactions. I hope to remain in service and available to both my local and long distance clients for years to come. 

If you want a reading and do not have a safe resource in your town, please feel welcome to call me at 904-993-7466 to schedule your appointment. 

Thank you for your kind attention to my post, I hope you find it helpful.
