One of the many issues to think about in your practice is
office hours and the number of hours you need to work to
meet your financial goals or obligations. For some, being a
reader means being part of a support system for querents,
while others consider their role as a reader a temporary
solution to the querent's immediate need.
Some practitioners structure their business with specific
hours designed to fit their "style" or reading process.
In aligning themselves with spiritual purpose, many
practitioners resonate with the "call" to service and
helping others on the path of spiritual evolution.
Alas, many of these spiritual helpers are disturbed by
the occurrence of the "asap" client or taking on an
"emergency" reading. They are not ready or willing to
pull tarot consultations into the 21st century attitude of
instant or readily available information that can be
accessed at the click of a mouse. On the other hand,
there are many psychic sites that employ readers who
don't shy away from "instant access" readings.
Open accessibility can feed your growing business if
you handle it the right way. If you have the attitude that
a client or potential client who is in need of an emergency
reading is somehow not worth your attention, you could be
doing yourself and your business a great disservice.
I take on emergency readings constantly, and not once has it
inconvenienced me to the point that I was not able to help a
querent in need. Not one client has ever taken advantage of
my time, although I work all sorts of hours because I have
an international clientele.
I am thankful for the years I've spent in the "trenches" that
developed me into a thorough reader who can churn out
email readings, attend to my scheduled appointments,
and take on someone who may call up for an immediate
It takes only a moment to find out if it is a "true"
emergency. Usually they'll call or email to explain the
nature of what the reading is for and are happy to settle
for my earliest availability, even if it is the next day.
Many times people don't stop to read the details of your
scheduling and assume there is open availability. Consider
whether the wording or lack thereof on your page or site
implies that you take appointments anytime. If not, clearly
state that they must book a reading in advance, and that you
do not take same day appointments.
The downside of taking on emergency readings is that it
could potentially interfere with your own sense of
boundaries and/or structure for your lifestyle. Of course,
you could consider yourself lucky if you are overwhelmed
with so many clients you can't fit them all in your day. My
motto is "You may be too busy, but I'll take the referral."
I have set hours displayed on my order page, but one of the
best things I do for my practice is to diligently keep track
of incoming messages and emails so that I can respond to
inquiries or appointments with lightning speed. This has
been successful for me, and most of my repeat clients have
come from my willingness to give them a reading in an

WHEEL OF FORTUNE TAROT INSTALLATION
Wheel of Fortune is a circular installation of salvaged
doors which, upon entering, each reveal a large-scale black
and white multiple exposure metallic photograph. The
portrait series of women feature wildly unique depictions of
the Tarot's Major Arcana archetypes.
Inside is a beautiful parlor with a hand crafted, metal,
open-air gazebo with benches made with vintage bed frames, a
central seating ottoman with steps which invite curious
visitors up to spin a bullet ridden barrel lantern that
casts beads of light throughout the space...
