My name is Gem and Tarot is my passion. My Tarot journey started from the moment I was born. Tarot reading is in my blood. My mother is a gifted Tarot reader and gifted me my first Tarot deck when I was fourteen years old. For me, Tarot is a spiritual and emotional energy exchange. I love nothing more than meaningfully connecting with people from all walks of life through offering intuitive, insightful and transformative Tarot readings. I have over fourteen years worth of experience and I work with a several decks but mainly with the Rider-Waite. I work with a range of spreads depending on a client’s question: Celtic Cross, Astrological, Horse Shoe, Five Card and Three Card spreads. I offer readings for guidance, support and enlightenment. My speciality areas include love, relationships, family, career, creativity, goal setting, life purpose, personal growth and spiritual well-being. When I read your cards prepare yourself for a brave and beautiful experience! My mantra is “know thyself” and my life purpose is to support others in discovering their own truths. Tarot is a path for truth seekers. As you experience your personal journey I hope to be your calm, compassionate and reassuring guide.
What do you like most about giving readings to clients?
I have two favourite things about being a Tarot reader – 1. I love connecting with people emotionally and spiritually 2. I love providing people with clarity. There really is nothing that makes me feel more alive then reading Tarot.
How would you say you are typical of your star sign?
Scorpios can sometimes be misunderstood as the “bad boy” sign of the zodiac. However, as a water sign, Scorpios are one of the most spiritual and emotionally connected signs of the zodiac. I am a typical Scorpio in the way I experience deep spiritual and emotional connections with others. I am an empath who is highly sensitive to energy, emotions and the realm of spirit. As a Scorpio, I am comfortable exploring the shadowy side of things, delving into darker territories and channeling intense energy whenever it presents itself. These skills are incredibly useful as a Tarot reader. Scorpios are also celebrated for their commitment to honesty, a value which I pride myself on, and a value which I think is perhaps the most important value for any Tarot reader to possess.
When do you remember being first aware of your gift?
For as long as I can remember I have been fascinated with witches and everything spooky. This fascination seemed innocent enough however when my mother gifted me my first deck of Tarot cards my life changed forever. She revealed to me that I come from a line of spiritual healers. At first I was slightly confused and embarrassed about my connection to the cards however as I grew in age I grew in courage too. I started dabbling with readings for myself and for close friends. I now read regularly for friends, family and strangers. To this day I still remember that very first shuffle of my Tarot cards – it was magical. Other than Tarot, one of my first magical experiences was back when I was a teenager. I borrowed the book “The Secret” from my local library and I vividly remember being invited to visualise and manifest a feather. I was already experimenting with witchcraft at this stage but nonetheless was doubtful of my own power to will a feather into my life. With trepidation, I thought that I’d give it a go. I took a deep breath and I focused. That night a feather appeared in my room.
What is your most memorable experience with a client?
Every Tarot reading is memorable as every single person you connect with is unique. However if I had to pick just one experience, I would choose a recent reading when I supported a woman in gaining insight into her relationship with her fiancé who she had just walked out on. The stakes were incredibly high with this reading and at times my client could have felt very vulnerable, however I never judge, and she told me several times that she felt like she could really trust me. Throughout the reading lots of specific and positive information came to the surface as well as some more challenging messages. Together, we were able to work through the reding with trust, honesty and compassion. I think what was so special about this experience was the depth of the connection we experienced together. I’ve heard from this client several times since our reading together and I’m delighted to say that she is now absolutely thriving in her relationship. That very first night that we spoke we shared a truly special connection. I’m now so pleased that I can continue to offer her spiritual guidance as she moves on to her next chapter.
What other experiences or qualifications do you have that you feel compliment your work as a reader?
Alongside my Tarot practice I am a practicing Pagan and Witch. I work with crystals, candles, rituals and manifestation. My spiritual gift is innate intuition which I nurture daily through Tarot practice, studying the ancient esoteric tradition of Tarot, yoga and meditation. As well as my spiritual work I create art. I believe that all great art is created through discovering a deep, intimate and truthful relationship with your one true self and then sharing that gift with others. I believe that my work as an artist encourages me to stay open minded and compassionate - traits I infuse into every single Tarot reading I give.
What is the most important thing for a person to consider when they decide to have a psychic reading?
I think that the most important thing to consider before having a reading is what sort of experience do you want to have? There are all sorts of different Tarot readers with different styles and ways of connecting so it’s important that you get your cards read by someone who suits your needs. My clients have praised me for always making them feel comfortable and safe as well as my ability to deliver messages from the cards in a thoughtful yet honest way. Clients also enjoy the depth of my readings, the detail I’m able to go into as well as my calming and reassuring manner. I have a big heart and an open mind - I never, ever judge. My priority is always to look after my client and ensure that they have a magical experience.
