It seems like everyone online is reading Tarot Cards- and that's great! That being said, before you step into a tarot reading, you should have full confidence in your reader. Tarot isn't a toy, and deserves the professionalism and respect that it deserves. Tarot reading is an art form blending the four elements - it takes a high level of passion, intuition, professionalism, and intelligence to start charging clients.
If you're curious about what separates a quality tarot reader from the rest, pull up a chair! Here are seven of my essential ingredients that make ta quality tarot reader:
1. Knowledge and Know-How: Let's start with the basics. A quality tarot reader truly knows their stuff. They've delved deep into the history of tarot, they can explain the symbolism behind each card, and they've got more interpretations up their sleeve than you've got favorite songs on your favourite Spotify playlist.
2. Gut Feelings and Heartstrings: Intuition is key for a quality tarot reading. Sure, most tarot decks come with a little white book, but a professional reader should also have an intuition or 'sixth sense' that's tuned into your vibes and can connect with the cards on a whole other level to answer your specific questions.
3. Playing by the Rules (and Ethics!): Quality tarot readers play by a code of ethics. Not all questions are suitable to be answered by the Tarot, and your reader should feel confident to create strong boundaries with certain topics. Your secrets should stay safe with them, they shouldn't manipulate you for a quick buck, and they should be all about helping, not harming. Check out my code of ethics here.
4. Talk the Talk: Ever had someone explain something to you in a way that makes you go, "Ah-ha!"? That's the kind of clarity a top-notch tarot reader brings to the table. They can translate the mysterious cards into the most simplistic terms so you can truly grasp what's going on.
5. No Judgment Zone: Got a quirky question or a unique concern? A quality tarot reader is like a judgment-free zone. They respect your individuality and are here to guide, not to judge.
6. Always Growing: The best tarot readers are always evolving and working on their own practice constantly. They're on a journey of personal growth, constantly working on themselves so they can offer you the best possible guidance.
7. Authenticity is Key: Lastly, great tarot readers are as real as they come. They don't put on a show; they're genuine, and they bring their true selves to every reading. You won't find any pretense here - theatricality, perhaps, but never pretense!
How to Vet Tarot Readers: Asking the Right Questions
Now that you know what makes a tarot reader truly great, you might be wondering how to find one who ticks all the boxes. Well, it's all about asking the right questions. Here are some quality questions to vet tarot readers and ensure they possess the seven essential ingredients we've discussed:

5. "How do you create a safe and non-judgmental space for clients?"
