Tarot Readings

Rowan + Sage follows 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.
