Tarot Readings - Buffalo, NY

Psychic Readings in Buffalo, NY - Tarot Reading
Tarot Reading as well as Psychic readings, have been done for centuries in many different cultures and religions. Connecting to the higher spirit self, as well as to the spirit world, the cards help in the divination process. They help the reader bring quidance, help, and closure to those who seek it.

As an intuitive reader located in Buffalo, NY, I am proud to have the knowledge and the gift to read the cards. Stop by my website Enchanted Fantasy for Tarot readings, Fantasy & Whimsical art and merchandise, along with metaphysical items and supplies. Also available in my Etsy Shop.

So what is a Tarot Reading?  
Well, Tarot is a tool used for divination and guidance purposes. The cards are artistically drawn with colorful images filled symbols, seasons, and meanings. There is little known of where or who used the cards first, but we do know that the Tarot were first used as playing cards for fun and games. Consisting of 78 cards, the tarot were used for entertainment in the mid 15th century throughout Europe. Tarot has been dated as far back as the 1200's, but it was in the late 18th century that the Tarot started to be used for divination and guiddance purposes. The cards were used as a pathway to the unknown and the other side. These cards were not only pieces of art, but spiritual as well. This is where the true meanings of the Tarot emerged, connecting them to Egypt, the Kabbalah, philosophy, and alchemy.

There are many old forms of Tarot decks, but the most popular and well known deck in the English countries, is the Rider-Waite-Smith deck. Designed by artist Pamela Colman Smith, the images are very child like in nature. These cards may seem simple, but with deeper viewing one can see much symbolism and color.

How is a Reading done?
A tradition Tarot reading consisted of two people, a seeker and a reader. A seeker is a person who is asking for guiddance or help with a certain question in their life. A reader is a person who uses their intuition and knowledge to interpret the cards. The reader helps in answering the seekers question by laying out a card pattern called a spread, and then reads the cards as she sees them. Using different meanings, symbols, colors, and details within the cards to help the seeker. Tarot is a tool, a colorful artistic tool that is used to help guide us through lifes journey. The rest is up to you.

How does Tarot work?
Tarot works when the reader is asked a question by the seeker. The reader then connects with the seeker to help guide them to make a better life decision. The cards are tools for the reader to use which help to connect with the readers own abilities. A successful reading happens when the reader has a strong sense of intuition, remains objective, describes the cards, and relays a message even if they or the seeker does not understand it yet. Many times when doing a reading, a message may seem unclear or confusing at the moment. This is normal and most of the time days, weeks, or months later the message will become clear to the seeker.

Most readers want an open communication with the seeker. Sometimes seekers feel if they have to share any information with the reader, then they are not reciving a "good" reading. This is not a useful way of thinking and will hinder the reading, cutting the information short they could otherwise receive.

How does Julia do a reading?
Julia performs each reading in a similar & ritualistic manner. When she is ready for a reading, Julia lights certain candles & places different crystals out that will help her. She then asks spirit (God, passed loved ones, spirit guides, angels, and spirit self) for guidance, protection, and help in connecting with her intuition. Viewing each reading as a conversation among the client, spirit, and herself. She encourages each person to try and tap into their intuition as well when viewing the final reading. Julia records each reading so she can translate it directly to you. Recording the reading allows Julia to not miss anything when sending it to you. For examples of how Julia does a reading, please view her Tarot reading videos.

What is an email reading format?
When you choose the email option under the reading of your choice, you will recieve the full reading, guidance, and answers in an email form. Julia does each reading similar, so no matter how you decide to get your reading (email or video) you will get the same results. Julia also sends images of the reading (cards chosen, candles & crystals used, and spread) so you can see exactly what the message is telling. With an email reading you can refer back to the written words as much as possible.

What is a video reading format?
When you choose the video option under the reading of your chioce, Julia will record the reading as a video. She then will post the video on her You tube channel and send you this link to your email. No names will be used and it will be completely confidential.

How can one do a reading from a distance?
Julia taps into her intuition when doing a reading. One does not need to be present in order for the mind to connect intuitivly. Julia also asks for help from the spirit world & from God in order to find guidance to the question at hand.

Are the readings private?
YES! Each reading is done alone and is always kept private. No names are ever released.

Is a Tarot reading set in stone?
Not at all. A Tarot reading is a tool that helps guide you through lifes many tough questions. It suggests to you what could happen if you continue along a certain path. It is up to you to choose your own direction. If you like what you are heaing, then steer in that way or that path. If you don't like what you are hearing, make the correct changes to steer away. Everyone has a will and can choose which path is best for them. It is your choice on how to use and what to do with the information you receive.

Tarot card reading is all about your personal interpretation of the cards and their meanings. Not all the meanings will make sense at first. It is a great and informative article which is covering all important aspects of tarot card reading.

What a great post and informative. I have a question. Why are these done for entertainment only? By law (federal law) tarot can be used as divination and ministerial work. Freedom of religion is a big legal reason why tarot is legal. How about "love offering" for the payment. I have a hunch that with that being the case one would receive more back than if they charged a fee for it. And if one wasn't appreciative and thought they should have received more back, that may help them to find out how they can give more next time and to their community. :) Just a hunch and from experience in ministry (legally).

@ babymother... Thank you for your comment and quetion. By law in NYS I must put for entertainment only. Many states have different laws on what needs to be put. It has nothing to do with federal law.
About the love offering, I am not sure what you are asking there, so i will stay away from that one.
About the giving back statement, I think everyone should give back to their communities. I am an animal activist and give my time and donations to the shelters. So I do agree that we should all do our part. And yes Tarot is legal and is freedom of speech & worship. But I do not worship the Tarot, it is just another tool to connect, a form of divination.

Yes, tarot readings are hundreds of years old. A reading depends on the quality of the one who gives it, and If you are good at sensing energy it helps a lot. Great tarot article.
