My Tarot Reading from Rachael of Talk2TheTrees

Last week I was lucky enough to get a tarot reading via Skype from Rachael, and it was fun in a variety of ways, not the least of which being that I could compare it to my first reading at a fair a few years ago–and Rachael’s reading was miles better than that one.

She wrote a blog post a few weeks ago about working with the Tarot more and when I commented on it, she offered a free one to me, so why would I say no to that? (Aside from anxiety at talking with new people, which I combated by simply not talking much when she called–sorry!) We set up a time, and she called me on Skype one afternoon last week. The reading wasn’t long, only about ten minutes or so, but it was creepy in an awesome way. A lot of what she told me felt specific and actually relevant to what we were discussing, unlike my reading at the fair where I would get questions like, “Does someone in your family have an interest in photography?” Those were a little too generic for me. But Rachael did such a wonderful job of describing the cards to me, both their image and meaning, and giving fairly concrete suggestions for what they could mean.

After, she also sent me an email with a photo of the spread she had done so I could see the cards for myself, along with everything she had told me so I could look back at the email if I had forgotten anything, which is of course super convenient. I did take notes while she spoke to me, but they weren’t as thorough as the email, so they’re only good for quick reference and reminders, not deep thoughts.

I don’t really feel like sharing what she told me about the cards because I tend to keep interpretations pretty close to myself, maybe sharing with Dan or my friend Kat, but I like sharing photos of the spreads that I get, both in this case and when I do my own readings. The spreads themselves don’t feel as personal; it’s the interpretations that really make it in my opinion, so I’m not as hesitant to let others come up with their own meanings when they see what I get since they probably come out differently. (Does all of that make sense?)

All of this to say: If you get the chance to get your cards read by Rachael, I recommend it. It’s fun, revealing, and she’s a total sweetheart.

  1. Yay! Thanks!! I might use some of these words as a review sort of a thing once I get my site going… and oh my! I get such anxiety when meeting new people and talking to people I don’t know! I hope you couldn’t tell I was nervous!
