I’ve always had a bit of a frustrating relationship with phones. For some reason I don’t hear very well on them, especially when there is a lot of background noise. There’s no point taking calls when I’m out – people want to set up appointments and I have to look at my calendar which is at home, so all I can do is say I will call them back. But my iphone has terrible reception in my apartment…
Friends laugh when they hear my phone message, which essentially asks to send me an email. But emails are clean and reliable for me, and while a few do go astray, most of them are answered pretty quickly. However phone messages languish until I can find a moment... But that moment somehow is always after 11pm when I can’t return any of them…
All of which means, I apologize, but phone is really not the best way to connect with me, email is far better! (and yes, I am sending them out at 11 pm but that doesn’t bother anyone!)
Hope to hear from you soon,

People like reading from old decks, there is something about the sense that other hands have handled these cards, that they have a history, that they (and I!) like. However, over the course of a year, hundreds of people will have shuffled those cards and after a while they start to look tired. I change my deck about once a year, when the old cards start to get frayed and dog eared. The time has come… today I start with my new sleek deck…
I use a version of the Rider Waite deck, called the Radiant Rider Waite Tarot, which is basically a brighter, more colorful version of their original drawings.
If anyone wants the old one, just drop me a line and you can come and pick them up…

I've gone through each card individually, now I am going through clusters of cards. What does it mean if your draw lots of pages in your reading? Every time I start discussing the court cards I always feel that I have to add the warning that court cards in particular need sensitive readings and a generic approach doesn’t work with them. A page can mean many different things depending on the context.
Phew, said it, now I can go on with what does it mean if you draw lots of pages?
Well, first it depends how old you are. If you are under 26, it means it’s all good. You are starting, new, fresh, young, and putting yourself out there. However, if you are older, it means that you feel a little young for your position, and need more gravitas. And if you are over 40, it means you really need to examine your life, you should have older, more established cards and you are feeling too unsettled, too inexperienced, and are making too many ‘newbie’ mistakes… (Or it could mean that you have lots of children in your life… see, it needs sensitive readings!)
