Whether a half or full hour, your tarot reading is tailored to your query. The half hour option can give a quick overview of the upcoming months, or it can focus on a question you bring. The full hour appointment goes into greater depth, for either a general exploration or to examine deeply a particuar problem.
1a. General reading, half hour
This will show the main issues that will be arising over the coming three to six months. It will reveal whether the dominant theme is likely to be work, love, or family, for instance. It will indicate the sorts of opportunities and challenges that are likely to arise, and will provide suggestions on dealing with these most effectively. In a way, this reading is like a weather forecast. If you want to take a sampling of the upcoming months and see how life is going, this is the best option.
1b. General reading, full hour
The main events of the upcoming three to six months are identified, as in the half-hour reading. However, because you have more time to go deeply into issues or expand your enquiry, the reading allows for greater exploration, with additional cards being drawn for more in-depth clarification. You can explore and examine different strategies and options which you are considering, and weigh up their pros and cons. You can see what responses are likely to be effective in light of future events and circumstances. This allows you to examine your options with more deliberation, reflection and examination.
2a. Question-based reading, half hour
This is a great choice for when you want to focus on one area of your life, and have a clear question. This reading will show the likely outcome of your current approach, and indicate the basic factors surrounding and affecting the outcomes. You will have the opportunity to ask follow-up questions for clarification on your question, and your reader will give some advice on your best responses and actions. You can examine the solidity and validity of your current approach, or recalibrate your path, should the reading indicate that to be a more rewarding option.
2b. Question-based reading, full hour
This is the deepest type of reading, in which the mastery of the reader is drawn on to the fullest extent. You bring a particular question, issue or dilemma for the furthest and most serious consideration. You are given, first, a clear outline of the major factors and upcoming events in regard to your question, including hidden influences. You have ample time and can ask for clarification on any angles of the question, and further cards are drawn to give answers. Finally, you can discuss in some depth the ways to best proceed and respond. If personal matters are being examined, you may prefer this option so that you have time for careful handling of emotional issues.
In a Tarot Reading
People choose to have a tarot reading for reasons: family, profession, relationships, personal development, and work matters are just a few. Whatever the issue, an ethical tarot reader is always respectful of you and your life choices, as well as according you confidentiality and honesty.
Tarot readings at Treadwell’s are held in a private room, so you have complete confidentiality.
1. If you have come with a specific question, you may discuss this before any cards are drawn. If you are having a general reading, then you clarify this at the outset.
2. Your cards are laid out in one of the traditional patterns, known as layouts.
3. Your reader interprets the overall situation from the meanings of the cards, their positions in the layout, and their relationships to one another. Trends and occasions likely to arise in the next three to six months are identified for you. You have the opportunity to ask for further clarification of any aspect, and your reader can speak in greater depth about these points, often drawing further cards on points for which you want more detail.
4. Your reader will always discuss with you what strategies and positive action you can take in your life over the coming months, and will conclude the reading with some outlooks of pro-active points for you.
4. You may record your reading on your mobile phone or dictaphone; most people prefer to take notes.
Treadwell’s Code of Ethical Practice
Your Treadwell’s tarot reader respects the broad diversity in human experience: sexual orientation, social background, ethnicity, lifestyle choices, beliefs, religion, psychological challenges and physical disability.
- Readings are in strict confidence between the client and the reader. For this reason, all readings are conducted with the client alone, unless translation or physical support is necessary.
- Clients will be treated with sensitivity and respect.
- If specialist information is sought, the reader will direct clients to the relevant profession (such as legal, medical, or financial).
- Readings will not knowingly be given to clients aged under 18 years.
- All fees are agreed prior to the reading.
- In the rare event that the reader is unable to read for a client, the reader will inform the client promptly, and no fee will be payable.
What is Treadwell’s Three Month Rule?
Your reading covers the next three to nine months, and will unfold over that time. To maintain perspective, readings are not given for the same person more than once in three months. We strongly discourage dependent relationships with divinatory consultants, and this policy is also an expression our commitment to that principle.
