Tarot Readings

My name is Gord. I’m an intuitive tarot card reader, meaning I use the cards in conjunction with my own intuition to offer affordable and accurate intuitive tarot readings. Readings with me will give you guidance and fresh perspectives to help you navigate difficult, confusing, or liminal spaces in your life. If you’d like to see the tarot readings I have available, please click here or read on below.

Tarot is a tool for understanding yourself, gaining insight into situations, and navigating the turbulent waters of life. The power comes not from the cards themselves, for they started as a mere game, rather the power comes from the person who is reading the cards connecting with their intuition. Each card represents a perspective, a stage in life, or an archetype, and can provide a mirror for us to see ourselves or our situations in a fresh light.

One of my goals here at Watchful Soul is to make tarot readings accessible to everybody. For that reason, payment is available on a sliding scale for BIPOC and queer individuals, as well as those on low incomes. Please contact me if that applies to you and we can work something out.

Please click one of the options below for more information on the types of readings I offer. If you’d like the learn more about tarot, please see the links below.

what kind of tarot reading is best for me?

Here at Watchful Soul, I offer readings in three different formats – recorded, email and live.

Recorded readings are available in audio or video, and are delivered within 24 hours of ordering. Once the reading has been completed you will be able to download the audio/video file and a pdf containing a photo of your cards from your order page.

Every emailed reading will be delivered via a pdf downloaded from your order page, consisting of a photo of the cards pulled as well as a detailed interpretation of the meaning in relation to your question.

If you’ve never had a live tarot reading online before, fear not! My live tarot readings take place on Zoom, you will receive a link for the call once your order has been confirmed. During live readings we’ll keep things conversational, and I try to make things as light as possible. (Without sugar-coating!) Sometimes things may get a bit emotional, but it’s always enlightening.

Every recorded and live reading will include a personalised calming meditation inspired by the cards pulled, to help you ground into the present moment and be empowered to transform your life.

Whichever format you choose, readings are available at three different levels, direct, deep dive and detailed. Read on below for more information about each one.

FAQs

WTF is Tarot?

Tarot is a system of 78 cards, dating back to the 14th century, that has been used for centuries for divination and cartomancy. But more than that, it’s a tool for understanding yourself, gaining insight into situations, and navigating the turbulent waters of life. The power of tarot comes not from the cards themselves, for their origins lie in simple playing cards. Rather, the power comes from the act of the person reading the cards connecting with their intuition. Each card represents a perspective, a stage in life, or an archetype, and can provide a mirror for us to see ourselves or our situations in a fresh light. Learn more.

So… Are you a medium or something?

No, I’m not. Some tarot readers may claim to be able to communicate with those that have passed or offer mediumship readings, but that is not where my gifts lie. I aim to interpret the meaning of the cards in a way that enables you to explore your inner feelings and discover your future path. I am very intuitive thanks to my spiritual upbringing and meditation practice, but I am not a medium… sorry!

Isn’t tarot evil or satanic or something?

Certainly not. There’s nothing to fear when getting a tarot reading (u003cemu003enot with me anywayu003c/emu003e). Tarot is a tool, like meditation that we will use to help you find some clarity in your life. I won’t be inviting any spirits or ghosts or demons. Just me, you and some cards with nice pictures on them.

OK, I’m interested… But what should I expect?

If you’ve never been to an intuitive tarot reader or online psychic, then it’s understandable to be nervous. We’ll start with a quick introduction where I’ll explain how the spread you’ve chosen will work, which deck we’re using, etc. I will then pull the cards, and give you my interpretation and reflection, seeing what messages come up. I usually end with a meditation. I try to make things as light as possible, sometimes things get a bit emotional, but it’s always enlightening.

Can you do your own tarot reading?

Yes! Absolutely, reading tarot for yourself is a fantastic way to keep your mental and spiritual life in check. If you’d like information about how to read tarot for yourself, please see the Tarot Resources

should I believe TikTok tarot readings?

A simple look on the TikTok tarot reading Reddit will tell you that there is a lot of controversy around tarot on TikTok. With any readings, I always say judge things with your own intuition. If something resonates, then absolutely take that on board and use the information the cards provide to transform your life. However, if it doesn’t feel like it’s fitting, don’t force things. No reader gets it right 100% of the time!

Are You Jesus?

I am who you say I am…
But, obviously no. A lot of people seem to ask me this, I’m not quite sure why as I’m pretty sure I look NOTHING like a first-century Palestinian man… I hate to break it to you, but if you’re looking for a Messiah or God to worship, I’m not the one for you – sorry! (You can still tithe to me if you like though, I have no issue with that. Head over to my tip jar if you want to throw some money my way, or join the collective 😉)
