This article is for my readers who love Tarot and Oracle Cards! I’ve been doing Tarot card readings in Brisbane for several years now. Funnily enough, I avoided cards early in my psychic career, because I associated them with sorcery. I preferred palmistry and numerology, as they suited my science background. After all, your hands and date of birth have been with you for a lifetime.
2017 Update – My husband Kris Anderson is an expert Tarot Reader in Brisbane, also I’m now a fan of the Chakra Insight Oracle (Australian). I’ve also moved away from Hay House products – see this post.
It was only when my Mind Body Spirit Festival clients kept asking for card readings that I began to experiment with different decks. I discovered that Tarot forecasts are wonderful, because they suit visual people, who need to see things to believe in them.
It’s amazing how many times I have said something (e.g. you’re about to get a job), before pulling a card with ‘new job’ on it, for example. The Universe always delivers consistent messages, assuming you are working with a reputable reader (see my thoughts on psychic readers and spiritual maturity).

How to Do Readings with Tarot and Oracle Cards:
I won’t go into detail in this introductory blog, but please be mindful that a reading should be used to clarify your intuition, rather than to tell you what to do. Don’t give your power away. After all, you are a powerful Soul and a card deck is just a block of wood with pictures on it. I once said to the women at Red Tent Australia ‘if you ever find yourself depending on your Tarot cards to make all your decisions, burn your deck, give it away or rip it up!’
Tarot readings reflect your energy at a moment in time, so they are not always 100% accurate – if you change your choices, you change your future. Hint: If I pull a lot of ‘dark’ cards, I will clear my energy (e.g. go for a walk, meditate, or receive a healing). This is usually enough to shift my mood and my next card reading will be more optimistic. Note: I’ve mainly profiled Doreen Virtue’s card decks below – not only are these some of the easiest to find, Doreen is a Master 11 Lifepath in numerology like me, so I resonate with her books and products. Find your lifepath.
