[Vlog] How I receive psychic information: a video edition of Ask a Tarot Reader

This is another post in the “Ask a Tarot Reader” series. If you have a question for me that you’d like to see featured here, please email me at tarrytowntarot@gmail.com, Subject line: “Ask a Tarot Reader”. Please specify how you would like your name to appear or if you wish to remain anonymous.

Before we get into the video edition of today’s Ask a Tarot Reader, I have a PSA:

I am unable to answer all the phone calls, voicemails, and texts I receive, especially ones starting with or ending with any kind of “let me pick your brain” sentiments. Let the Ask a Tarot Reader series be my way of answering these kinds of questions in a public forum, rather than expecting individual responses back. Think of it this way: I’m still answering your questions, but publicly… as many of the Ask a Tarot Reader questions have been asked of me frequently!

In that spirit, here’s the newest Ask a Tarot Reader question:

Hilary, I am fascinated by what you do. How do you receive psychic information? How do you “know what you know”?

Synopsis: Semele Cavnow is an antiquities appraiser, specializing in ancient texts. On assignment dealing with a famous collector’s estate in Switzerland, Semele stumbles upon a rare manuscript that she surmises must be from the time of Cleopatra—a manuscript that was deliberately left off the official records… a manuscript that came with a mysterious note from the deceased collector:

Semele,
Tell no one what you find written in these pages. Translate the words and you will understand. You can trust no one now.
Marcel

Despite this foreboding message, Semele translates the manuscript. As Semele translates the manuscript, she becomes absorbed in the story of the powerful seer that wrote it and the very first tarot deck lost to the cruel twists of history… and Semele comes to realize that though the manuscript helps to awaken her own psychic gifts, it also places her in terrible danger.Continue Reading

Readers Studio Rundown, Days 1–3

All 3 days of the Readers Studio Conference in one large post!

Otherwise known as Day 1 1/2: the half stands for the fact that I arrived at the hotel on the Thursday afternoon to make sure that I was there for Heatherleigh Navarre’s Crystal Ball by Candlelight evening study group that I had been planning on attending for months. The reasoning? I have a crystal ball already that I will sometimes place on my reading table when doing party readings, but is more decoration than actual divination tool for me. I wanted to change that by attending Heatherleigh’s class.

On Thursday the Tarot and Psychology conference was going on (one-day conference), so I drove to the hotel after finishing up beauty appointments (hair and eyebrows, respectively), checked in, put my stuff in my room, and came back down to the lobby area to scan and see who I knew that was already there. Lo and behold, the lovely Jaymi Elford immediately finds me and hands me my copy of her tarot deck, The Triple Goddess Tarot (if you want to check it out, it happens to be my deck of the month for May’s card of the day pulls on social media). Squees and hugs ensued, but we quietly made our way out of the way to not disturb the tarot and psychology attendees that were still in the ballroom taking their classes.

During one of the breaks, I snuck into the ballroom to cruise the Merchant Faire tables that are situated around the perimeter of the room, taking special note of what was where and trying very hard not to start my shopping spree right then and there. Said my hellos, and went back out into the lobby area to hang out with other people arriving for the main conference the following day.

Some of us made our way to the bar area where dinner was being served, and I had an early dinner with people there for the main conference, and also attendees of the Tarot and Psychology conference who took advantage of the break time between the 2nd and 3rd session of their conference to eat before returning to the ballroom. I returned to the lobby area to kill time before the cocktail reception happening at 8pm, and the start of the evening study groups at 9pm.
