How To Read Oracle or Tarot Cards

You will want to make sure and have a journal and pen ready (or a computer or recording device). Take note of the date, time, moon phase and the zodiac sign that the moon is in.

To begin, I protect and purify the space I’m in along with my oracle cards by saying a simple blessing such as, “Mother Earth, Father Sky, please protect this space I’m in.” You could also sage your space or sprinkle water/salt in a clockwise circle around you.

Creating a Sacred Circle

Next I call upon the directions: North (Earth), East (Air), South (Fire), West (Water) and Spirit so that we are within a sacred circle and oriented in time and space with the planet.


Time to ground and center - we need to stay supple in this work by being both intuitively spot on and practically grounded. If you need more assistance finding that still, calm, peaceful spot inside yourself.

Next, call upon your spirit guides, ancestors, Divine(s), Gods/Goddesses, a Higher Power (whatever you choose to call it), Mother Earth, Father Sky to be with you now in the reading.

As you shuffle your oracle or tarot cards you can prepare any questions you might have or simply ask for spiritual guidance. You may want to decide beforehand if you’re going to do a simple single card pull or a basic 3 card layout to see into the immediate past, present and immediate future.

Soul Reading Prayers for Spiritual Guidance

I always say these prayers before beginning a soul reading, past life reading or ancestral reading:

“I ask that this soul reading be for the deepest, highest and most profound good for all concerned.”

”I ask for an open heart and to be a clear channel for the Divines.”

Your Non Dominant Hand is Your Intuitive Hand

I use my non dominant, intuitive left hand to pick an oracle card. Often I will not look at the card until after the reading is over, because if the card confirms the information I received in the reading it’s double confirmation and helps build trust in one’s intuition. With the Cat Herbal Oracle Deck I do tend to look at the card right away and at the back where all the spiritual, magickal, astrological meaning is written.

Moon Journal Your Soul Reading

Make sure to capture all the messages and guidance you receive from your card(s) because this will help you strengthen, build and trust your intuition especially when you look back over what you’ve written months later. You may receive feelings, bodily sensations, visions, words, a gut hunch, colors or sounds, or maybe nothing at all. Take the time to rest your attention gently upon the card or to use this as a moment of down time instead - you may simply need to relax and dream a bit, perhaps even fall asleep - it’s all perfectly okay!

Chakra Energy Healing

You may also want to try dreaming with an oracle or tarot card under your pillow, or try holding your card up to your third eye chakra (envision the color purple) or your heart chakra (envision the color pink or green). You can learn more about chakras and energy healing centers here. They are something I incorporate into every single soul reading I give.

Intuition Is Your Best Guide

Intuition is our best guide into our inner selves, our darkness, our light and our power. We can use our intuition to guide us when all else fails. We can build trust in our intuition by using our intuitive muscles regularly and by getting confirmation that what we intuit is on the mark. A Moon Journal can help you keep track of your intuition as can a Dream Journal. When we learn to trust our intuition we will receive a beautiful, healing message: that we ARE guided and we ARE loved, just for who we are.

Become a Soul Reader

Yes, you can become a soul reader too. It just takes practice, practice, practice! If you need my help let me know. I’ll probably start off by giving you a soul reading along with intuiting a guided meditation to help you find your own way. After that I may recommend myMoon Musing eClass and spending time with your oracle cards or tarot guides to receive messages by giving readings to yourself and friends. A Moon Journal is essential as is a Dream Journal.

Libra Full Moon Reading

I pulled a Cat Herbal Oracle Card from my new deck this morning and I’m so excited because this is the first time using my new deck since I got it back from the printers on Friday - so excited!

I placed the card I pulled under my pillow and dreamed, wrote, intuited. I felt warmth, butterflies, heart opening and my critical thinking turned on too and I was inspired to write a whole bunch of ideas down. Then I felt the energy subtly shift into a feeling of self preservation. I felt that I needed more time to reflect, to simply BE and to appreciate the changing of the seasons. Now is a time to quietly share and to find peace within. I hope this reading has something in it for you too.

I’ve been an artist/astrologer forever and a soul reader since awakening my intuitive gifts at age 40 while painting with my non-dominant left hand. I've published 4 oracle decks that combine with my soul readings to provide you with a healing, intuitive, heart filled experience.

I write, paint, teach at Creative Cronies Moon Diary, California Women’s Museum, Sage Woman Magazine and Wise Woman School. Canadian born, I currently live in Temecula, California with my architect partner Mark and our mini pooch Djinn-ie in an adobe style home we built ourselves.

If you are seeking inspiration and spiritual guidance you may want to consider a soul reading, past life reading, astro report or ancestor/spirit guide reading for further insight.
