I'm now in the position to be able to provide Tarot readings by email. I will answer one question for £10 or two for £15. I can also provide an in-depth look at the year ahead for £15. All readings will be sent in PDF format with a detailed answer and full colour illustrations of the cards drawn. You can order by sending the fee via PayPal to The payment reference should be your surname. Please also forward your question, name, d.o.b. and photo (optional) to this address and you should have your reading within 7 days. The year ahead reading makes an ideal gift for Christmas/New Year. If you are not satisfied with your reading in anyway I will refund 100% of the fee paid.

Glasgow Helicopter Crash - What the cards say

Shocking news of a police helicopter crashing into a packed pub in Glasgow this evening. Details are a bit thin on the ground at the moment, but there are rumours that the pilot tried to perform an emergency landing on the roof of the building. I asked the Steampunk Tarot about the causes and consequences of the accident.
 The 4 of Pentacles indicates the cause may have something to do with the hoarding or withholding of money. Perhaps corners were cut in the maintenance of the helicopter to save money? The 5 of Swords could indicate pilot error and the 10 of Swords is a fairly obvious indicator that there are injuries and, more than likely, fatalities. Details of this have not been confirmed by the Scottish media at present and this is one of the rare times when, as a Tarot reader, I hope the cards aren't accurate. My thoughts and prayers this evening are with those involved and their families

Reversed Cards - How Do You Get Them That Way?

Here's an interesting thing, I've recently started to incorporate reversed cards into my readings to give them more depth. I've invested in a few really good books to help me with the meanings (The Complete Book of a Tarot Reversals by a Mary K. Greer being my favourite), but there's precious little out there to advise on HOW you reverse the cards in the first place. Should you cut the deck in two and reverse one half or only read them reversed when they come out that way accidentally? I'm not a fan of the table mixing method of shuffling so that's out for me. What I have found is that nobody can seem to agree on what proportion of the deck should be reversed. I'd love to hear your opinions!

My Favourite Decks

 The Fool from the Gilded Tarot
What better way to start off the Scottish Seer blog than by telling you my favourite Tarot and Lenormand Decks. For Tarot my go to deck is The Gilded Tarot designed by Ciro Marchetti and published by U.S. Games Systems Inc. This deck appealed to me because of the gorgeous artwork and the rich colours of the cards. I also use the Radiant Waite (another deck published by U.S. Games Systems). I think everyone should have a version of the Waite deck, but the original for me is a little dull and flat. I love the way the colours pop in the Radiant Waite and the people I read for enjoy them too.

I've recently started using the Lenormand oracle as well and currently use the Mystical Lenormand by Regular Elizabeth Fiechter/Urban Trösch (published by AGM Urania). I also have the Gilded Reverie Lenormand (another beautiful deck by Ciro Marchetti) iPad app and have pre-ordered a physical deck which I'm sure will be well used!

A Big Hello From Scotland

Hi all and welcome to my blog. I'm an amateur Tarot and Lenormand reader from Fife in Central Scotland. I've been reading the cards on and off for since I was a teenager and have recently got back in to them in a big way. I'm currently working with a mentor from the Tarot Association of The British Isles to improve my cartomancy skills and though it would be a good idea to start a blog for all things Tarot. I plan to post readings about current affairs, useful card-related things I find on the internet, deck reviews, app reviews and anything else that takes my fancy. Hopefully other card readers and people interested in the Tarot will get something out of the blog and I'd really appreciate feedback and comments on how people like the blog and what they want to see. Well that's my introduction over now to decide what my first post is going to be....Thanks for visiting and I hope you come back soon!
