Q:  Do you ever charge different amounts than what your site says?

A:  Not usually, but I'm flexible.  You should contact me.

Q:  I'm a bit nervous about commiting to set up a reading without meeting you, what are my options?

A:  Your best option is to contact me via this webpage.  Just go to my contact us section and e-mail me and I'll be happy to answer any questions you may have.  We can also set up a phone or in person meeting if you're still unsure.

Q:  How long is a normal reading?

A:  It can vary, but usually it takes between half an hour and an hour.  It depends on the information you're looking for and how much you dive into the meanings that the cards give you.

Q:  Do I have to do anything to prepare?

A:  Just keep an open mind and think of questions you'd like to have answered.

Q:  Is there anything tarot can't tell me?

A:  It can't answer yes or no questions or predict the future, but if you tell me the information you're looking for, we can usually come up with a suitable question/s for the cards.

Q:  Is there anyone you won't do readings for?

A:  You must be 18 or over for a one-on-one reading, or be accompanied by someone who is.  I'm also happy to do couple readings and parties.

Q:  What's your favorite kind of tarot readings to do for people?

A:  Honestly, each persons readings are so different that I don't think I have one clear favorite.  I would say that the most entertaining is often the couples readings because I get to see the interaction between different kinds of people, but I wouldn't say I have one favorite kind of tarot reading.

Q:  Do you use a certain tarot deck/have a favorite?

A:  My favorite tarot deck is my Greek Mythology tarot deck, and I try to use it as much as possible.  But I do have a standard Rider-Waite deck, Steampunk tarot deck, and the Mystic Dreamer tarot deck if you prefer one of those.

Q:  Are there any tarot readings you won't do?

A:  I don't tend to do the long, traditional spreads like the celtic cross.  I see them as inventions to create attention and not give you the information you're seeking.  While some readers may find them useful, I think there are easier and more logical ways to get the desired information from the tarot cards.

Q:  What if my so-and-so disagrees with you?

A:  That's okay; it's up to you to take from the reading what you will.

Q:  May I bring friends/on-lookers?

A:  Yes, you may.  Please let me know you're planning to do so when we're contacting each other.  Just know that often the information from tarot readings can be quite personal, so be careful who you bring.  And if they end up wanting a reading themselves, I'm happy to do so, but I will ask them to pay for it.  Lastly, I will ask for them to not talk too much during your reading.

Q:  Do I need to tip you?

A:  Need to?  No.  Will I reject a tip, most of the time, no.  If you ask me to do a party, which I love doing, I might put out a tip jar with your permission.

Q:  Will you charge me if I cancel last minute/don't show up?

A:  Well, I'm generally cash only, so no.  I won't be thrilled because of the time I've taken to get to where we're meeting, but no. 

Q:  I live outside the metro area, can we meet out here?

A:  I don't have a car, and as I live in the city, so I'm sorry to say, no.  But I'd love to meet you in the city if we can work out a location.  That said, if you're on the commuter rail, and you don't mind paying for the additional cost of the tickets, I can do that as well.

Q:  If I'm running late, will you still be there?

A:  As a policy, I tend to stay a half hour past the agreed meeting time.  I live in the city, so I do understand what public transportation is like.  But more than half an hour and I'll figure you've changed your mind.

Q:  What kind of parties do you work at?

A:  Lots of kinds.  While wedding receptions, bachelorette  parties, and big birthday celebrations are the most popular, tarot readings are great for holiday parties, office parties, fundraisers, festivals, art openings, store openings, you name it.  Although, if you want to just have a big get together to do tarot readings, that's great too.
