When I said this, I was surrounded by laughter and jokes, but later realized just how accurate this was for me. I've been asked to teach Oracle cards several times, by people who come to me through my learn to read tarot intuitively programs.
It leads me to have to explain that Tarot and Oracle, although they look like similar systems. (They are on cards, they have pictures, you can put them in spreads.) to my mind, they are completely different systems.
It doesn't make one better than the other, they are just different. They seem as different to me as the choice between getting your tea leaves read, and pulling out a pendulum to ask some questions.
I love the tarot system, and I love to teach it, especially for beginners. There is a rational order to it, even within all of the stuff within it that dances with intuition. The ordered system helps create the 'rules' to practice over and over again, and once you've mastered the simple guideline tarot rules, it allows you to go on autopilot.
(Think about when you learned to drive a car. At first, you are all nerves and trying to remember the rules. Skip ahead years and years later, you aren't thinking about the rules anymore, you're able to drive on autopilot.. with the radio on and a smile on your face.)
Because of how I learned to read cards (and then on autopilot, learned how to tune into the Source or Universe or Spirit Guide messages) Teaching someone how to read Oracle FIRST, makes ZERO sense to me. Oracle, to me, is ALL intuition.
(I'm not a fan of memorization of cards, and I find to read Oracle without intuition, means to memorize odd numbers of cards....not what I teach, not what I do.)
So, it feels like a valid question for me, in my life as a professional tarot reader. Are you a Tarot Reader or an oracle reader? It does sort of translate for me as "are you a cat person or a dog person."
At this point, after over 26 years of reading tarot, and knowing how to tap into the tarot system intuitively, I CAN read oracle cards. I find it so much easier to teach oracle, after a student already has an understanding about how to tap into their intuition.
If you are ready to learn how to read intuitively, let's connect and find what the best type of deck would be for you, based on your own goals and vision!
As a professional reader, I want to be able to reach those who need the guidance and clarity that I provide while still honouring my time and energy. To create a balance with this, I offer a number of different reading types at different price points, based on the prompting of my spiritual guides.
Email readings are one of the options that I provide to give people in any budget get the tarot or spirit guide messages they need to feel good about the path that they are on, or how to know where to go next.
When I'm doing email readings, I open your email only when I'm 'in the tarot zone' and ready to read for you. I focus on one question at a time, shuffle the cards and draw them out on my desk. I type out the reading for you not only based on the images and stories presented by the tarot cards, but also the spirit messages that come through as I sit in silence.
Often the typed readings will feel like they have a different 'voice' than when I'm doing live videos, and that is only because translating the messages through typing seems to translate a little differently. I generally type at LEAST 250 WORD answers for each tarot question, and I am trying to be as concise as possible, and clear as possible, so the message makes sense. (When we sit in person, I have lots of opportunity to paint pictures for you in different ways. With email reading, I almost feel like I have to be condensed and more precise the first time.)
Email readings are great, as you get to keep the reading to refer back to again and again, as you meditate on the messages received and grow in your life.
Readings done by email can take up to 48 hours for you to receive, as I do them around my in person appointments during the day. I make sure that I'm as fresh and clear for your reading, as I am for live video readings, telephone readings, or IM readings.
To start the process of your email reading, you can just send an email inquiry right to me, or you can check out the email reading info with buttons to buy the reading right away.
I look forward to connecting with you, and helping you get clarity on your path!
