Philosophy

“Tarot doesn’t tell you what is going to happen in life; Tarot helps you figure out what to do when life happens.”

What follows is more detail about some specific topics. It’s a bit of a big read, but I hope you will stay with it. By the end you’ll know if I’m the right intuitive Tarot reader for you or not. The full version of TaoCraft Portfolio will cover all of this in more detail. The free download version tells you all about the practical side of readings (formats and such.) You can get the free download HERE.

Predicting The Future

Predicting the future is pure fiction. Authentic, real-life readings don’t work that way. Humans, life…it’s all too complex and fluid. I could give you predictions all day long, then five seconds after the reading, somebody somewhere can change what they decide or what they do and at the same time change the so-called prediction. Even Hollywood knows better now. Remember Yoda in Star Wars who tells us “always in motion the future is” and Alice the vampire in Twilight whose visions change whenever decisions are made.

I’m not going to hand you a platter of easy answers. I’m not going to blow a lot of feel-good smoke at you. My readings are advanced Tarot work intended to inspire you, to empower you, to expand your horizons or, best of all, to validate the things you already know.

If you just want someone to make 100% accurate predictions, then you should find another Tarot reader. If you want razzle-dazzle mind reading, an easy fix and 100% certainty, then I’m not the psychic you are looking for.

If you are ready for growth and self-discovery, if you are ready to step into your own power, if you are ready for imagination and exploration and possibilities, then this is the right style of Tarot for you. I hope we can work together soon.

Relationship Questions

Your reading focuses on you and you alone.

Why not? You are paying for it. A reading should be something special, just for you.

Tarot can’t read minds or tell what other people will do. Tarot can’t tell what other people think, feel or want. Out of respect for everyone’s privacy and personal dignity, I never read anyone’s energy without their direct knowledge and consent. So no, a reading can’t tell if you and your ex will ever get back together. Instead, a reading can explore how you can heal, if that is what you need. It can help you discover the path toward the right relationship for you.

In some very rare and very special times, the other person will lend a little energy to the reading and give us some sense of their role in things. Again, it is very rare and a loving gift from them to you. It is a special experience that should always be respected and never expected. If it does happen for you in a reading, please use a lot of care and discretion if you talk about it with the person who sent the energy. Many times, on the conscious level, they are unaware of what happened and learning about the reading may make them feel uncomfortable or hurt. Be very careful about the other person’s feelings. Discretion and kindness are always the best way to handle such things.

Medical or Pregnancy Questions

No. Nope. uh-uh. Not happening.

It isn’t about some fancy set of Tarot “ethics.” Taking medical questions really is a legal liability risk in a litigious society like ours, but that isn’t the primary reason I won’t touch medical or pregnancy questions.

It. Just. Doesn’t. Work.

I was a physician assistant for 13 years. I have a degree in Natural Health. I’ve been a Reiki Master practitioner since 2000. I know both the Tarot and medical sides of this issue. It is a matter of the right tool for the right job. You wouldn’t use your cell phone to hammer nails. You wouldn’t use a hammer to make a phone call. By that same token, you don’t use Tarot to deal with health and healing. There are lots of tools in the health and healing toolkit: Diet, exercise, Reiki, meditation, aromatherapy, herbs, acupuncture, acupressure, hypnotherapy, physical therapy, art therapy, music therapy, and yes, mainstream medicine too.

Tarot is not one of these health tools. It is true that some physical ailments heal quicker once you discover their emotional or spiritual roots (if there are any.) Tarot might help to a limited extent. Sometimes there is no deep spiritual causes and health issues can be a product of injury, environment or genetics. Tarot can help you manage the stress caused by these kinds of physical conditions in a small way, BUT AGAIN, Tarot is not the best option. Reiki and meditation are far better for that kind of stress management. I can help you with those natural health techniques, but as for Tarot….

None of the books, blog posts or services offered on TaoCraftTarot.com can diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease or illness whatsoever. Nothing offered here can take the place of professional health or mental health care. I accept no liability of any kind real or implied. Use these books and services entirely at your own risk. Scheduliing a Tarot, Reiki or meditation session with me indicates that you have read, understood and accept these terms and the policies listed HERE.

Authenticity

What you see is what you get.

The whole reason that I re-branded in 2018 from Modern Oracle to TaoCraft Tarot is because I’m done pandering just to win one client. If I lose your business over any of the following, so be it. Chances are we wouldn’t be a good fit for a reading anyway.

  • Black Lives Matter: I am anti-racist
  • Love is Love: I am a LGBTQIA+ ally
  • Women’s rights are human rights: I support full reproductive choice and pay equality
  • Every human deserves the dignity of medical care.
  • I am atheist, Taoist, Zen, solitary and eclectic – all together, all at the same time.
