I follow the American Tarot Association’s Guidelines for Ethical Readings (modified):

Hi there - Sarah here. As an ethical Tarot reader, I help others to better hear their own inner guides. I empower clients to think through their options and come to decisions on their own. I remind clients that, whichever direction the cards may point, the future really lays in the hands of each individual. If necessary, I will encourage clients to seek the professional help of doctors, counselors, accountants, and lawyers — especially in cases where the client’s concern goes beyond my field of expertise. I do not use the cards to identify “curses” or “bad energy” nor do I offer time-based predictive readings. All my professional actions are offered in the service of health and wholeness. Learn more about my readings + process here.

  1. I serve the best interests of my clients, conducting my professional activities without causing or intending to cause harm.

  2. I treat all my clients with equal respect, regardless of their origin, race, religion, gender, age, or sexual preference.

  3. I honestly represent my Tarot qualifications, including educational credentials, levels of certification and experience.

  4. I keep confidential the names of clients and all information shared or discussed during readings, unless otherwise requested by the client or required by a court of law.

  5. I recommend clients consult a licensed professional for advice of a legal, financial, medical, or psychological nature that I am not qualified to provide. If trained in one of these areas, I will clearly differentiate between the tarot reading and any professional advice additionally provided.

  6. I do not perform readings for those under 18 years of age, nor do I perform readings on someone else at the request of a third party.

  7. I don't typically do time-predictive readings or determine if you and your ex will get back together, etc. I cannot determine how someone else will react/act or provide you with any information that which a psychic may be able to. That’s just not my gift and free will is a powerful thing! I can, however, offer you insight into the energies around your situation and offer you guidance on how to achieve your desired outcome. You have the power to create your fate. Your reading is just that – yours. Please use our time together for you and you alone.

  8. I respect my clients’ right to refuse or terminate their reading at any time. Similarly, I reserve the right to terminate a reading if a client’s actions seem harmful, abusive, or out of line with my ethics.
