Heroic Tarot:  Frequently Asked Questions


Q:  How do I make an appointment?

A:  Email stormantic@gmail.com 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?

A:  Synchronicity.

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.
