Samhain is a night when the veil between the living and the dead is at its thinnest. Pagans view this date as one of the holiest on the calendar.
In the Northern Hemisphere, the leaves have fallen, the days have become shorter, the nights have become longer, and the Pagan New Year has begun.
It ‘s a time out of time when you can more easily be in touch with the Otherworld. This makes it a wonderful day to honour the dead and practice divination.
This is also the time of the Crone. Old woman, bone woman, Hecate and the Cailleach!
She takes us to the crossroads, the dreamtime, and gives us the gift of wild revelation.
In this reading, I go to the crossroads and listen for your messages.
We meet the Crone and receive her gifts.
You’re invited to bring anything to the crossroads.
Whatever you may need on your journey, the cards and I are here for you!
All readings include photos of the cards a Video Recording made just for you.
I create sacred space and do an intention setting ceremony with every reading.
Readings are delivered between October 1-November 10.
Readings are limited.
Hi, I’m Vanessa Sage, Ph.D., and I have been working with the tarot since I was 15 years old. I remember buying my first deck in a dark and musky magic shop filled with books, cards and crystals. My life hasn’t been the same since! I’m a total tarot geek. I simply LOVE the cards!
I’ve published scholarly articles on Goddess pilgrimage and Paganism, trained as a coach, taught meditation classes, written a book of poetry, and am currently leading women in a year-long Priestess Certification program!
The kettle’s on and the cards are out!
I can’t wait to do this sacred work with you!
I’m a guide & a fellow seeker. My intuitive readings can help you gain clarity, peace of mind, and inner strength.
I encourage you to look within and trust yourself. You’re in the driver’s seat of your life and are completely responsible for the decisions you make. Readings with me are empowering and full of love.
A few things to keep in mind:
- I’m not a fortune teller or a psychic.
- I don’t give financial, legal or health advice in my readings.
- I don’t read for people under the age of 18 or for third parties.
- My readings are not predictive (i.e. I don’t predict your future). I believe predictive readings are ultimately disempowering.
- Please also see my disclaimer below.
Your readings are completely confidential.
[reveal heading=”%image%What’s your approach to tarot readings?“]When I read for you I create sacred space to explore the cards with you. I bring a knowledge of the tarot system as well as my intuition to readings. I’ve been working with tarot for over 20 years, and understand the responsibility and sacred service tarot readings provide. I don’t view your trust lightly and am committed to providing the best and most useful service I possibly can.[/reveal]
[reveal heading=”%image%What decks do you use?“]I use a variety of decks that are on seasonal rotation. They’re being added to all the time. I choose a deck for your reading based on your question and the spread. I use both tarot and oracle decks. [/reveal]
[reveal heading=”%image%How do tarot readings work?“]The tarot is simply a deck of cards. There’s nothing supernatural about it. The tarot is a tool and an archetypal language that helps you gain greater clarity into your life. A reader knows how to use the tarot as a tool and can speak its language. Yay! And a reading is essentially a conversation between the cards, the reader, and your subconscious. Basically, readings are a way to get to know yourself better.[/reveal]
[reveal heading=”%image%I’m not sure what questions to ask. Can you help?“]Absolutely! Here are a few basic guidelines for asking questions that will help make your readings so much better: Try to ask open-ended questions. Stay clear of Yes/No questions. They aren’t open-ended enough. “What” and “How” questions are much better than “When” and “Why” questions. If in doubt, a general question like: “What do I need to know for my highest good?” is perfect![/reveal]
[reveal heading=”%image%I’ve never had a tarot reading before. What should I expect?“]Every tarot reading and tarot reader is different so you never really know what to expect. However, you can expect to see things in your life differently and gain insights into what’s going on in your life right now. Often the cards will confirm what you already know deep inside. Readings help you sort through the muddy waters and gain clarity.[/reveal]
[reveal heading=”%image%What’s your approach to the scary cards?“]I get it. There are some pretty scary cards in the deck. Most people don’t want to see the Death card come up, for example. My approach is that every card helps us see the shadows and the light in our experiences. Death doesn’t mean actual death–it tells us about change and transformation. It’s the winter in a garden and the phoenix rising from the ash. My readings are open-hearted. I hold all of the experience (the shadow and the light) with compassion and love.[/reveal]
[reveal heading=”%image%I read for myself all the time or I’m a tarot reader. Why get a tarot reading?“]Me too! I encourage you to read for yourself and learn the tarot system. It’s a life-long passion and joy of mine. I’ll never stop reading for myself! And I regularly have others tarot readers read for me. I’m so grateful to have another person’s insight into the cards and what they mean for my life. It’s a great gift that I give myself, and the readings I’ve received have helped me make changes and see things I never would have seen myself.[/reveal]
[reveal heading=”%image%I’m ready! What happens next?“]After you purchase you will receive confirmation of payment right away and a welcome email within 24 hours (most likely sooner) with all the details you need for your reading. My turn around time is 7 to 10 business days after I receive your reply with your question. Make sure to look for my email in your Inbox, Spam or Promotions folder! If I’m on holiday or backlogged it will be clearly stated on this site. Message me at email@example.com if you have any questions. I can’t wait to read for you![/reveal]
[reveal heading=”%image%Do You Accept Payment in AUD, CDN, Euros, and Pounds?”]Yes! All prices are quoted in USD. Your currency is automatically converted for you at checkout.[/reveal]
[reveal heading=”%image%I Don’t Have a Paypal Account. Do You Accept Credit Card?“]Yes! You can pay with credit or visa debit card if you don’t have a Paypal account at checkout.[/reveal]
[reveal heading=”%image%Do You Invoice?“]Yes! I invoice in USD when paying in full. Your currency will be automatically converted for you when making your payment.[/reveal]
[reveal heading=”%image%What’s your refund policy?“] Tarot readings are a personalized service agreement, so once the service has been delivered there are no refunds. I’m giving you my knowledge, experience, insights and time. When I do a reading for you, I dedicate myself entirely to you for the duration of your reading. When you order a reading, you are receiving a customized, personalized service, not a product.[/reveal]
