It's not often these days that I use Keen for phone readings. When I'm available, you'll see the button above say so. If I'm on a reading, it will put you next in line to speak to me.
I do quite a few Instant Messaging readings, because sometimes the neighbourhood is noisy! When I was co-renting Three Crows Speak Art gallery space, I would have the IM on anytime there wasn't someone in the Orillia Gallery.
But the phone readings have fallen to the wayside. This is mostly because I've discovered that I really like the face to face interaction of Zoom readings! However, I know not everyone has internet or wifi where they are, and so I still have my phone account set up.
With the phone tarot readings, you can't see that I'm shuffling, or when I'm closing my eyes, or making the little hand signal that I do by habit, to indicate that I'm getting spirit guide messages for you. But trust me, it's happening.
When I'm reading for you on the phone, I'm sitting in my quiet office completely focused on your voice in my one ear, and what spirit whispers in the other.
Sometimes I'm sitting at the laptop desk that I have set up to do my psychic and tarot business, and other times I'm sitting on the daybed, with the cards all spread out in front of me, and my cell phone in my lap.
If you are ready and prefer a phone reading, rather than a Zoom reading, the preparation for your call is still the same.
I've created a "How to Word Your Question Well" note, so that you will be best prepared and make the most of your time with me.
When it comes to phone readings, it's important to understand that the rate noted on that page is in US dollars. You are in control of what you spend, but I usually recommend that you allow 10 to 15 minutes per question, to really feel out and understand what Spirit is trying to say to you about your topic.
Keen keeps all your information private - I won't see your phone number, or any of your personal details. If you don't want to set a name to your account, it will keep what I see as a "Client number", and so that allows you to remain anonymous also.
When I first started doing psychic tarot for clients on the phone, it was through the Miss Cleo lines. Remember those? It was 1999, and I was brand new at reading for others. It was busy!
Several years after that, I worked as a contractor for California Psychics. I treated it like a job, logging in for 3 hours a day, keeping track of my calls so I knew what my average call was - because at that time , the readers had to maintain an average of 20 minute phone calls.
It was a challenge though, as they would have free minute promos, and people would routinely call, use those 3 minutes, and not pay for more ... so it would bring down the average call time, and bump the reader to the bottom of the call list. Feeling like I HAD to keep clients on longer felt NOT right to me. If I had delivered the answer to their question in 10 minutes, that should have been the end of the call.
I discovered Keen in 2002. A Middle man type site, where I could create my own listings, work when I wanted to, without having to maintain a weekly hour commitment, or an average phone call time. This felt much better. And still gave me all the benefits that I was looking for with a phone line.
And it continues to feel better using it. Those early days on the phone lines where I worked as a contractor were so stressful. In my professional tarot practice now, I absolutely cannot read for clients if I'm stressed - how am I supposed to deliver news of calm and clarity to clients, if I'm stressed out about keeping them on the phone?
I basically log in to be available for phone readings when I have no other appointments, meetings or classes... and when I feel compelled to log in randomly (which honestly usually happens when the Universe "pings" me, that I am required to assist someone THERE.)
When I am doing IM Readings, I'm sitting at my desk, with the cards out on the table, just like when I do the Friday Funday readings. I type between 65 and 90ish words a minute, so the pauses will happen in IM readings when I"m shuffling, or forming how to word the messages for you.
Reading Tarot long distance is very similar to the idea of remote viewing, or distance reiki. We are all connected, and when we ask Spirit or Source to connect us, it does so instantaneously. I've been doing these remote readings a LONG time, and I find it easy to connect this way.

Springwater Tarot Horoscope for Nov 29th to Dec 13th.
Aries (March 21-April 19) – Justice – It's important for Aries to take a good hard look at all the evidence before deciding what is right - And that every story has two sides. Think before you speak on these sort of matters. Everyone gets what they deserve, one way or another.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) – The Sun – Honesty is the best policy. Figure out how to speak your truth and practice those words before presenting them. Does it feel like truth on your tongue? Do this, and the truth, in turn, is revealed to you.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) – Prince of Pentacles – Embrace the offer of commitment, stability, foundation. And know that, yes, even when you don't know all the answers or exactly where the steps are leading, that you are on the right path. Don't allow doubts to set you astray.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) – 2 of Wands - Pay attention to "Right time, Right place" synchronicity moments that happen during this time. Even if what comes of these situations doesn't feel like it was on your list, be aware that the Universe is trying to create balance and open some doors for you.
Leo (July 23-August 22) – Seven of Swords – Gather the FACTS, and make your lists or build your case. And, no, made up scenarios in your head do NOT count as weigh-able, measurable facts. This is a time for thinking about the challenges at hand and ahead and carefully planning how you'll present them, if need be.
Virgo (August 23-September 22) – The Magician – Have some feelings of uncertainty surfaced? The Magician reminds you that you have all of the tools, you've studied, and you have every right to take these skills out into the 'real' world and use them. Be confident in your skills and all that you've learned, and get started.
Libra (September 23-October 22) – Strength – Take a deep breath, and feel your inner strength. Let it be firm without being aggressive. Let it be backed by the knowledge of who you really are and all you've accomplished. Don't worry about proving it to anyone. Simply wear it easily and with confidence. This gets you through the next few weeks.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) – The Tower – If it feels like it's all falling apart, spend some time meditating on the ways this time can be used to positively set you on a path that feels even better for you. It may look like chaos now, but creation can only come after the movement of chaos. You'll land, like you always do, better than before
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) – The High Priest – Quiet reflection on how you can or do create balance in your life, between earthly pursuits and spiritual beliefs will help you to be a fair and just decision maker during this time. Remember to consider both your heart space and your head, and hold your ground gently but firmly.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19) – 5 of Cups – It's okay to spend some time feeling remorse or mourning what you think you've lost or left behind. When you wipe your eyes and clear your head, you'll see that there's time and space for new pursuits or ways to fill that emotional space that has meaning for you.
Aquarius (January 20 to February 18) – 6 of Pentacles – If you see an opportunity to be generous (in word, in spirit, with time or with abundance.) know that these acts are good for everyone, if they are given with the intention and energy of joy, and accepted with appreciation. Mind your energy boundaries and only give from a place of feeling good.
Pisces ( February 19 to March 20) – Ace of Wands – Energetic new beginnings are on offer, even though the year is wrapping itself up. Find a comfort zone in the speed and direction in which this time is leading you. If you stay in the flow, even when the water gets hot, you'll be on your way to letting go and getting on with it.

Get to know me! Meet The Little Witch.
I'm so pleased to announce that I'm writing a column in the Springwater News paper!
Introducing my Tarot Horoscope. A Card for each sign will describe the cards advice for the two week period.
Springwater News covers the Springwater area, but is based in Elmvale. Elmvale is a central hub between Midland, Wasaga Beach and Barrie, it's a perfect place to get the Tarot Horoscope re-started. (I did this for a local magazine while it ran.)
What I'm hoping to do next is find a small office space or a room I can borrow twice a month to do readings in Elmvale. It will make it easier for the clients that come and see me from Collingwood, Barrie, Elmvale and Wasaga Beach. So if you know of a space in Elmvale, I'd be ever so grateful!
How does a Tarot Horoscope differ from a traditional Astrology Horoscope?
Traditional Astrology HOROSCOPES use the positions of the planets and stars, and where they fall in each sign, to determine the fortune.
With a tarot horoscope, I'm still using the astrology signs as the starting point, but each sign has a specific card pulled for it. Then, based on the attributes of the signs and the story of the tarot card pulled for it, I create a short reading similar to when I'm reading cards.
I have been reading cards in Midland Ontario for over 20 years. You can't read in a small town like this, for this long, and NOT be good at it! I have a steady client practice mostly based on word of mouth, and am called on to do house parties, as well as house cleansings, and Medium readings in the area.
I have a small office located in downtown Midland for my clients. Part of my gift is that I get spirit messages. I use their help while writing the column in the paper, and when doing tarot readings in my office.
