1. Are you a psychic?
No, I’m not a psychic although some would argue the point with me. The nature of all my tarot readings comes from experience with the cards and a long standing trust of my intuition to interpret the messages given by the cards with an intuitive analysis.
2. Do you actually write my reading, or is it computer generated?
The interpretation of the cards is written by me and is a unique and personal Tarot Story for you. Each reading includes approximately 300 - 600 words per card and is hand crafted into page layout software and exported to a .pdf file for you to download and/or print.
Each card in the Tarot Reading Story is associated with a set of predetermined meanings and symbols. I keep archives of those meanings stored on my computer in a database. This means you may receive similar text for a card if it turns up in a second reading.
The unique variables in your Tarot Story such as card parings, card positions within the layout, timelines, and relevence to your question are all written as the reading takes place.
3. How long does it take to receive my reading after I fill out the form and make payment?
Currently, all readings are done in a first come, first served order. The average window of time to receive your reading is within 48 hours of receiving your question. I will notify you if my reading schedule is likely to push outside of that time frame.
4. Why can't I pick my layout?
In most circumstances the layout or spread of cards is based on the number of cards purchased and the nature of your Inquiry. Once I read your question and have the cards in hand - I begin to listen to the cards. The layout is chosen while mixing the cards. Concentrating on the layout strengthens my connection process between your question and the cards.
If you order a comprehensive reading such as The Executive Oracle, or the Reading of the Rose - those spreads are very specific and serve as a predetermined roadmap for the cards.
5. Can I schedule a live reading over the phone or internet video call?
Currently, I am not available for live readings, but please visit my YouTube channel and watch some of the Mystic Marcella videos. Its a good way for us to connect without physically being together.
6. You have refused my question, why?
It's not often that I refuse a question, but sometimes it is necessary to have you rewrite the question to fit the nature of how the Tarot cards provide an answer.
Here are 3 tips for writing your question
- Try to ask open ended questions.
- Ask for guidance instead of a specific outcome
- Ask questions about you
7. Can I request a specific Tarot deck ?
No, currently I use only two decks for Tarot readings: the Waite-Smith deck and the Tarot of the New Vision. All readings are first presented with the Waite-Smith deck. If any of the cards need clarification, I will consult the New Vision. Both the decks resonate with my intuition in both symbolism and spirituality.
8. Will you send me a monthly reading on a specific date?
Yes, a scheduled monthly reading is available at a discount to subscribers in all levels of the Oracle Circle Member Plan.

10. I asked the same question to another Tarot reader and the answers were substantially different. Why is that?
Different messages would be my expectation and not considered unusual. The difference is based on the cards drawn and the connection between you and your Tarot advisor. Each reading resonates with insight and details that are picked up by the Advisor and how the Advisor chooses to express those details to you.
11. What happens if I am unhappy with my reading?
It is very important to me that you feel your personal Tarot reading is valid and valuable. If you feel unsure about the reading, please contact me through the feedback form with your concerns and I will ask the cards for additional clarity.

12. I want to learn more about Tarot. Do you teach any courses?
I do not offer a formal Tarot Reading course. I am hopeful that through on going blog posts, articles and videos I will be able to help those wanting to know more.
13. Do you contact the spirits of the deceased?
I am not a medium, so “No” I do not speak with the dead. But.... I do offer a Tarot spread called Spirit Cal. It is designed to open a special portal of communication through the cards with those that have crossed over.
