Heroic Tarot: Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How do I make an appointment?
A: Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 415.260.2903.
Q: How long are your readings?
A: Individual Heroic Tarot readings are an hour. Couples readings are an hour and half.
Q: Can I get a reading today?
A: Generally I am already booked the day of your inquiry. I require preparation time to make your reading the best it can be. However, there are rare occasions when I can accommodate same day appointments.
Q: How does Tarot work?
Q: My past experience with Tarot was very discouraging. It frightened me. What makes your readings different?
A: Heroic Tarot is about catalyzing your dreams and goals. It is my desire to help you facilitate your highest aspirations. I do not promote fear-based philosophies or prognosticate doom.
Q: How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been reading Tarot for myself and others since I was a teenager. Heroic Tarot was established January 1, 2010.
Q: Do you give readings for couples?
A: Yes. I provide readings for romantic, familial and business partnerships.
Q: Do you do readings over the phone or via Skype?
A: Yes. Phone and Skype appointments are not listed on my monthly calendar and must be scheduled individually. I can also provide you with a reading over FaceTime.
Q: Do you work events?
A: I love to bring my unique brand of insight to parties and events! At events, I vary my readings from 3 to 5 card spreads and I tend to use a traditional Rider-Waite deck. I do my best to keep each reading concise and robust. Depending on the interpersonal dynamic and needs of your event, I am able to accomodate six to eight clients an hour. I work events with a three hour minimum. You may negotiate up to two additional hours before or at the event (I have a five hour maximum). Sometimes there is an additional travel fee.
Q: How do you present yourself at a party or event?
A: My playful attire and my joyful personality help create an atmosphere of ease and openness. It is important to me that I make a connection with each and everyone of my clients. I am always cognizant of how information might affect my clients and I present what I see in the most empowering and positive manner. After all, my business is named Heroic Tarot which means I want everyone to access their inner hero!
Q: Can you teach me about the Tarot?
A: Yes, I do provide classes through my Heroic Tarot Academy! Each class is a one-on-one experience with a specialized curriculum designed for your individual needs. In addition to learning about the Major and Minor Arcana of the Tarot (as separate entities and as a sequence), Heroic Tarot Academy will also teach you Metaphysical Studies including the Runes, Numerology, Astrology, and the Kabalah.
Q: What spreads do you use?
A: I believe that each person deserves an experience tailored to their individual needs and therefore I create unique spreads each time I meet with a client.
Q: What decks do you use?
A: Currently I use the traditional Rider-Waite deck, The Faerie Oracle, Runes, The Aquarian Tarot and my unique X-Men divination system. Each is available for your appointment upon request.
Q: What is the X-Men Tarot all about?
A: I devised my own system of divination using an X-Men playing card deck. It combines traditional Tarot meanings with modern super-hero archetypes. This system has won many awards and accolades.
Q: Do you use reversed meanings?
A: I believe it is more important to look at what is working and not working rather than label people, situations and events as “good” and “bad” so I tend to work mostly with the cards right side up. There are times, such as phone or Skype readings, in which I will work with reversed meanings for more clarity.
Q: Can you tell me if my spouse/significant other is cheating on me?
A: This kind of inquiry is invasive to another’s free will and privacy and goes against my personal ethics. Your reading is for your own growth and personal development. I have no desire to spy on others for you.
Q: Do you read palms or birth charts?
A: I am not a palm reader or an astrologer, although I do have work with astrological influences. I have studied numerology and do incorporate that informational system into my readings.
Q: Can my friend/lover/family member listen in on my reading?
A: Receiving a Tarot reading is like having a phone call from Spirit. Unless you are receiving a couple’s reading, I think it best that you have a solitary experience. You can always talk about it with loved ones afterward and that may help you in processing the information. That said, if you feel strongly that your friend/lover/family member needs to be a witness for you, please let me know and we can work something out.
Q: Can I record my reading?
A: You can record your reading under the understood contract that the recording is only for personal use and may not be reproduced or made public in any way.
Q: What is your cancellation policy?
A: If you cancel your appointment with less than 24 hours notice, you are responsible for full payment of your scheduled session.
