Please note: My gifts have always been in my intuitive interpretation of the Tarot. That’s where I excel and I consider my readings to be accurate and enlightening. I do not consider myself to be psychic, per se, however I will always be able to give guidance and clarity on any issue you’d like to look at.
My spiritual journey began young; I have always sensed that a world existed beyond what our five senses perceive, and this was further cemented by several spiritual experiences during my early years, including a near death experience.
I have felt a strong draw towards spiritual practices – divination in particular - for as long as I can remember, and I began giving readings using the Tarot and the I-Ching many years ago. Inspired by the accuracy and wisdom it could produce, I soon became eager to learn as much as I could.
Today I am proud to call myself a professional Tarot Reader. I consider it a very enriching part of my spiritual journey; being able to use it to assist others along their path makes it even more rewarding.
What do you like most about giving readings to clients?
Working in spiritual guidance is not only fascinating and enlightening; it also provides the opportunity to make a positive difference to people's lives, and to do so in such a meaningful way. I love that element - it is at the heart of what I do.
How would you say you are typical of your star sign?
I am quite a typical Capricorn Sun sign - I am very driven professionally and I am studious, practical and determined in achieving my goals. Plus, I have always been viewed as rather mysterious - which I take as a compliment!
When do you remember being first aware of your gift?
In retrospect, the signs were there early. My intuition has always been astute, and as a child I was known to have dreams which would accurately depict aspects of events yet to occur, and the likenesses of people I had never previously met.
I was strongly drawn towards spiritual arts even in my early years, and when I began to read Tarot for people it felt so natural. When I realised the positive and powerful impact it could have, I knew that spiritual guidance was something I needed to explore further.
What is your most memorable experience with a client?
I remember there was one lady I gave a reading to online; she and I were strangers and had never previously spoken. Out of curiosity, she had bought Tarot deck and 6 cards had suddenly flown out of the pack whilst handling them; intrigued, she laid them in order, took a photograph and asked if anyone had any advice on what it could mean. Although there were no positions assigned to any of the cards, from glancing at them I could sense a story being told.
I gave the lady a summary of what I believed the cards indicated. To my delight she was astounded (in a good way)! by what I was able to tell her about her current relationship and the sequence of events which had led to that moment. As a novice to the world of Tarot she was able to experience its profound wisdom for the first time, and it was really satisfying being a part of that.
What other experiences or qualifications do you have that you feel compliment your work as a reader?
I am maternally descended from Gypsy ancestry, which may be part of the reason practicing an art such as Tarot feels so natural to me. Due to both this and my personal experiences with the cards I take the Tarot - and its power – seriously. I have a deep-seated belief in its ability to guide people towards knowledge and assist them in their path through life, underpinned by the compassion and understanding of an intuitive and knowledgeable reader.
I consider spirituality an important part of my life. Outside of work I am semi-vegetarian, use divination, read spiritual literature and meditate. In addition to the Tarot I also have experience in reading the I-Ching (an ancient Eastern Tarot equivalent) and I am interested in astrology.
I continue to take the the time to understand the deeper levels of the discipline, with the study of a range of esoteric and mystical literature. As a way of further consolidating my knowledge and experience and to provide clients with an extra layer of reassurance, I am hoping to soon undertake a certified Tarot Diploma Course.
What is the most important thing for a person to consider when they decide to have a psychic reading?
First, I would recommend being prepared for some reading conclusions that you are not expecting - or may not ideally want! One of the wonderful things about Tarot wisdom is that we often get the answers that we need more than anything else, even if it is not what we want to hear.
Second, sometimes the significance of a reading does not reveal itself until some time after it is given. So even if what is heard does not immediately resonate, do not be disappointed - sooner or later, a reading will always be revealed to have some significance, so it is crucial to keep an open mind!
Last but most importantly, it is key to find a reader who works well for you. Every reader has a different approach, and although Psychics, Mediums, Clairvoyants and Tarot Readers all work in the field of spiritual guidance and there is sometimes overlap, the disciplines are as separate as a runner, a swimmer, a boxer and a tennis player in the world of sport. Therefore, it is worth knowing the key differences between the practices to ensure that you get what you want from a reading. Do not be afraid to try new readers, and use both common sense and intuition to help guide you towards the most suitable one for you.
Top Class Intuitive Tarot reader. Rio did several readings on specific people and questions for me and was absolutely wonderful in her accuracy of the current situations. The wisdom and teachings from the tarot that Rio imparts is deep and spot on. Thank you so much for your beautiful reading of the tarot.
Rio is an incredible reader. I am very new to tarot and I needed some clarification on my love life. I am in a Long Distance Relationship and it can be emotionally difficult to navigate complex emotions. Rio was more than willing to provide me the support and assistance I need and to explain the meanings of the cards to be in great detail. She is very knowledge and kind which I believe is super important as I only trust people who really seem to care and have empathy. I HIGHLY recommend her!
