There's Magick in the Cards

Meet A Psychic Medium & Tarot Reader

Guest post by: Scarlet Moon

*Waves* Hello! I'm Scarlet from Veil of the Gray Witch, Moonwillow & Dragonwolf's Magical Shop and The Gray Witches on Facebook, and I'm going to talk about the different types of readings that I do.

I'm a Psychic Medium and Tarot Reader. I've been reading tarot for 16 years and have been seeing and talking with spirits since 3 years of age. It was rough at first, because I thought they were there to hurt me, then my Grandfather guided me and I learned that they just wanted someone to talk to or wanted to deliver messages to their loved ones. I've had my fair share of bad spirits, but that's a whole other story.

For each reading I do, I always prepare myself by protecting and shielding and asking my Guides to be with me.


Spirit Readings: Connecting you with your loved ones who have departed.

When doing this type of reading, I have a particular altar just for this. It's my Altar of the Dead or Dead Altar. In the center of my altar is my "assistant", a skull, no, I can't tell you his name. Also on the altar, are candles, offerings, photos of my ancestors, spirit incense, stones, etc. I get everything ready, the Client's name and a notebook and pen. I then enter a deep meditative state, and invite the departed loved ones of the Client to come through. Sometimes these readings go smoothly, sometimes it gets really loud because they are yelling over each other and sometimes I have to fight just to get them to talk. I always tell every Client before I begin, that the one person they want to come through, may not come at all. We hear what we need to hear, not what we want to hear. I also let everyone know that, if you don't remember a spirit or don't know what they're talking about, it doesn't mean that spirit isn't for you. It could've been someone who passed before you were born or when you were small.

Tarot Readings:

I offer different types of spreads to choose from, from simple spreads to more complex spreads. For tarot readings, I light candles, incense and ask my Guides to be with me. A lot of people think tarot is extremely easy and that it's pretty much just throwing down cards. That couldn't be farther from the truth! As a tarot reader, you have to bond with your cards as a deck and individually, study them, sleep with them when you get a new deck. Create a relationship with your cards. Know your cards.

Photo Readings:

With photo readings, I prepare and set up my space the same way I do with tarot readings, along with bringing myself into a deep meditative state. I don't just look at the photo, I enter the photo. I read the person and/or people in the photo. I read their feelings, auras and the scene around them and sometimes even pick up a presence of a spirit or spirits.

Top Annoying Questions asked to a Psychic Medium and Tarot Reader

1. "Can you give me the winning numbers for the lottery?".....NO!

2. "My reading said a certain person was coming into my life, can you tell me who, what they look like, how tall are they?".......No. your reading is for one specific question. If you want more answered then you'll have to get more readings. The cards focus on one question at a time.

3. "Can I have a free reading?"...... unless I'm giving a free reading away then NO! This is a service. It takes my time and energy to do this. Would you go to a mechanic or hair stylist and expect to get your car fixed or hair done for free? No? I didn't think so.

4. "You're a Psychic Medium and a Tarot Reader, are you a Witch too? And if so, will you do a spell for me?".....Yes I am a Witch and no I will not do a spell for you. If you want to practice Witchcraft, then learn it, don't expect me or other Witches to do your dirty work for you.

Well I hope you all enjoyed hearing about how I do different types of readings. And who knows, maybe I'll be back again with a different topic.
