From a very young age I was attracted to any form of “fortune-telling”, probably because it was forbidden. Having grown up in the Russian culture orthodox warns against seeking out predictions. The lady next door taught me in secret, of course, how to do Gypsy card readings with normal playing cards. I came across Tarot cards in England, where I now reside. I use Tarot to help me gain insight into situations that otherwise seem hopeless. Stress, frustration and every day worries clutter our mind and obstruct the view of the situation. I don’t use Tarot in the form of spells, the act I often witnessed when I lived in Cameroon. I use it to tell you what the most likely outcome based on your current actions. I want to help you make sense of you, and only you can influence your future through your actions, not through cards. Tarot is not capable of being good or evil. We are.
What do you like most about giving readings to clients?
Being able to help is what I like the most about doing a Tarot reading. I want to help you realise the most probable outcome of your actions so that you may rectify any errors today to ensure a better tomorrow. During the reading we will see your personal story in the cards and through that process begin to see your own situation through a new prospective and from different angles. Forks in your path that can positively change your life will be illuminated.
How would you say you are typical of your star sign?
I was born in the year of the Dragon and I am a Taurus. Stubborn bull, however I am pleased to tell you that I am known for bringing a calming and relaxing vibe to whoever I am with. I also have a great sense of humour.
When do you remember being first aware of your gift?
I saw grownups reading cards on holidays. They wouldn’t let me get involved. I was young so they stopped me. Once I had a dream of Mel Gibson. When I woke up and switched on the TV he was on the breakfast show. I also was convinced that I have the ability to find missing things. Things like keys, documents, etc. I used to say: "I'll find it! If I don't find it, it means it is not here!” Whenever something was lost I was always asked to look for it because I had a reputation of finding things. I try to keep that child in me now.
What is your most memorable experience with a client?
I was going to do Tarot readings in London Spitafield market, so I needed to buy material for the stall. While shopping I ended up chatting with a shop owner and she then asked me if I would do her cards we arranged to meet next week in the coffee shop. We sat in the corner so nobody would disturb us, but people kept interrupting us and asking if they can have a “go”. I think the reading with my client didn’t quite happen as planned; we of course rearranged it for later to finish it over the phone. But the interesting thing is that Tarot cards caused quite a stir in that shop. I was surprised to find so many people interested. Even the man with loads of espressos asked me to do his cards before everyone else, as he was running to a meeting. When I do readings here on Psychic Sofa for people I have never met, I often think of that story. I recognise that ï connect better with people through Tarot.
What other experiences or qualifications do you have that you feel compliment your work as a reader?
Tarot to me is an interesting subject in which I will never stop learning. And I do have loads of books on the subject. Although I work well with different Tarot decks and use different Tarot spreads depending on the nature of enquiry. I also think that my 20 years casino industry career contributes. I have interacted with people from different walks of life nationalities and cultures on daily basis. Having had that experience I feel it aids the TAROT reading session although I am naturally a peoples person. Sometimes I draw and play the piano, when I get the time. I am an arty person really. I do Kundalini yoga as form of exercise for body and soul.
What is the most important thing for a person to consider when they decide to have a psychic reading?
When you go for a reading please understand that we all have a gift of choice. I use Tarot to help make business or personal decisions, not to foresee what will happen to your business or your personal life. While I agree we are each subject to a particular path, no one, no destiny can make us walk any one path. There is no such thing as inevitability. You need faith in your own ability to walk the path of your own choosing.
