Tarot Working Guidelines for Happy Sessions

Tarot Working Guidelines help make sure the session works for everyone involved.

Every reader is different, and every person seeking a reading will show up with a different set of experiences and therefore, expectations. Here are my working guidelines, my basic philosophy, and what to expect when booking a private session with me.

Philosophical & Ethical Tarot Working Guidelines

  • I believe in free will and self-determination. Your decisions are always your own responsibility. My goal is to support you in consciously guiding your own life.
  • Your session is confidential; if you refer others, their sessions are also confidential.
  • I do not inquire about absent third parties outside the context of your personal relationship with that party.
  • I am not qualified to provide legal, medical, or financial advice. Consider Tarot a supplement to (and not replacement for) qualified professional support.
  • I reserve the right to refuse to work with anyone for any reason.

Session Terms

Tarot working guidelines for payments, scheduling and the managing the details of a private session.


Please expect to pay in advance to reserve a session if we've never worked together. Exceptions are extending a session in progress or honoring prior arrangements.

Turn-Around Times

I do my best to acknowledge requests promptly. Most email readings are completed within a couple of business days. If there will be a longer wait time, I'll let you know. If you don't hear from me within a day or two after contact, please reach out! I may have missed your email.

Time Zones

Please convert times to US Central whenever possible! I will do my best to verify we're on the same page confirming appointments, but it helps tremendously when people just use my time zone from the start.


Please contact me as soon as you realize you cannot make a scheduled session so we can reschedule. No-shows are NOT rescheduled or refunded. Of course, in the rare event I must cancel a session, I'll offer a refund or option to reschedule.

Barter & Discounts

I very rarely offer need-based discounts or barter. Any exceptions will be posted or shared in my newsletter. Regular clients may be offered time in bulk or "Frequent Flier" discounts. Contact me if you'd like to inquire about this possibility.


If I'm unable to provide an effective session for any reason, I will gladly refund payment (or reschedule if appropriate). Refunds are generally not offered for completed sessions.

Email Follow-Ups

You're welcome to ask for clarification on anything I've said in a session. For follow-ups beyond simple clarification, please purchase additional session time when you're ready to explore further. 

That being said, I'm always down for feedback on how things play out, so long as it's understood such updates are not an extension of the session itself. I care about how things work out for you!

Help Interpreting a Tarot Spread

Please don't send pictures (or lists) of cards from your own Tarot work and ask me to "just tell me these cards mean." That's not how I work. If you'd like a private consultation, book a session. If you'd like coaching to develop your Tarot skills, contact me to discuss possibilities.
