Psychic Tarot Readings
All of my psychic readings include the use of Tarot cards, as well as my clairaudient and clairvoyant abilities. As a Tarot reader and Tarot teacher for over 20 years, my Tarot spread and mode in which I read Tarot cards is unique and of my own creation. For this reason, my readings are accurate and I am able to describe events, situations, or people in detail. I encourage everyone to read about Sophie’s Reading Process.
Tarot cards provide profound guidance, and in so doing, want you to understand something; therefore, I do not give one-line answers or read Tarot cards as if reciting from a dictionary, as this would be meaningless and not serve you at all.
Although you may receive information or answers regarding your relationship(s), financial situation, family, work/career, creativity, business, etc., this is only one layer of the equation. The other layers are concerned with those people or situations that impact your life directly or indirectly, your choices thus far and the direction headed as a result, provide clarity or understanding, and enlighten you to other choices or perspectives that you may not have been aware of―all geared toward creating a balance of mind, emotions, and spiritual well-being.
I do not require any questions in which to focus upon or any information from you other than your first name and astrological sign.
I strongly prefer that you NOT provide me with any other information or background, as I work best with little or no interruption during a reading, but feel free to ask questions afterward or in the moment if further clarity is required.
I read the wisdom of Tarot cards; I don't read into them. In other words, they reveal truth, and this truth will always take precedence during my interpretation / reading. This is a very important point, and makes a huge difference regarding the ultimate accuracy of your Tarot card reading.
Previously, if you have had many inaccurate readings from otherwise well-meaning souls, it is likely they tried to fit the Tarot to your question (s) or perhaps told you what you wanted to hear, rather than straight up read the guidance offered by Tarot cards, which, if interpreted as they present, are uncannily accurate.
I see myself as an interpreter of Tarot wisdom, not an editor. That is why you will hear exactly what the Tarot has to say, which, on occasion, doesn’t always mesh with what you consciously wanted to hear.
In 2008, The Max Planck Institute concluded a study, which indicated that our unconscious mind makes our decisions a full 5-7 seconds before our conscious mind does or responds. This suggests that our conscious mind isn’t making our decisions as we have long believed, and calls into question whether we have free will.
As one who has long studied the deeper meaning and purpose of Tarot cards, this comes as no surprise to me. The Tarot is reflective of Our Soul / Higher Self / Unconscious Mind in conjunction with the Collective Unconscious, and these are what drive our (soul) car. And trust me, they have an agenda and planned destination all their own! They determine the way in which we are best served; from a higher consciousness / perspective and what we are to learn, and this is reflected by the Tarot cards chosen; regardless of what our conscious mind thinks it wants or where it chooses to go.
At this time, recorded readings are available for phone and Skype readings only. If you’d like a recorded copy of your reading, please check the appropriate box when making your appointment request. Files are saved as MP3 and a link will be provided. If you’d like to save the recording, you must download it to your computer within 5 days after your reading, otherwise, the link access will be removed. Recorded readings will help you to remember exact details, especially concerning those people or situations of which you do not currently possess conscious knowledge. Please understand; I am not responsible for any glitches or non-recordings that may occur. Keeping precise notes as a backup is well advised.
Psychic / Clairvoyant / Medium Readings
Am I a psychic medium like Theresa Caputo, James Van Praagh or John Edward?
The answer is sorta kinda. I have a similar gift, but it manifests differently in every psychic or psychic ability, and therefore, I am not like them, I am like me! For more info, read my FAQ’s.
I see people; but I cannot tell if they are alive or have passed on. Energy is energy. It all looks and feels the same to me, and I suppose the reason why I can’t differentiate.
What I hear comes through my clairaudient ability, and this will often be a name, theirs or someone else’s, and/or I get some or all of these perceptions via clairvoyance: physical characteristics, items they wear/wore, items which are meaningful to them, locations, etc. I am also clairsentient / empathic, which enables me to feel what they feel.
I never know what I will perceive, as I have no control over what / who does or doesn't come through. I also have no control over the amount or type of information received. The psychic insight provided to my clients is exactly those psychic impressions I receive; and more often than not, these impressions will answer questions or contribute to peace of mind and healing of their spirit-soul. On occasion, the information I receive also requires additional investigation by my clients.
Being an intuitive or psychic and trying to pass this information on to others is not as easy as one might think. Clairvoyant or clairaudient information usually comes in at lightning speed - for me anyway.
My clairvoyant visions are similar to what we may see in a dream; sometimes very vivid, sometimes not, sometimes a whole scene plays out, sometimes only bits and pieces. Often, what I receive makes no sense to me - but it does to those who receive the information.
With my clairaudient ability, I have to be very quick to discern exactly what I hear, or I'll lose a part of it. In other words, if I hear the name Katherine, but don't hear / capture it quickly enough, I might say the name Karen. Both have the same hard K sound and end with the same en sound.
In an ideal intuitive-psychic world, I could see and hear everything perfectly and exactly what I ask for, but it doesn’t work that way. Legitimate and genuine psychics do their best to guide you, but don’t forget; they too are being guided in the process. Please have understanding, appreciation, and as much as possible, remain open-minded to the information as it is presented.
My empathic abilities enable me to be highly sensitive to those who are suffering, confused, lacking clarity, and/or in need of spiritual-spirit counseling. My personal life experiences, as well as psychic intuition allows me a depth of understanding and the ability to help others see clearly, so they may begin a new path of personal awareness and enlightenment, prepare new life affirmations, and experience a new sense of freedom and joy.
Everyone is intuitive or has psychic gifts. Some are simply more sensitive to psychic energy than others are; therefore, they are more acutely aware of the psychic impressions they receive. I believe that the source of all psychic / intuitive information, ESP, etc. is the Collective Unconscious Mind (the phrase coined by Carl Jung), which is the God Source, Energy Source, Higher Self, Spiritual Self, Spirit Guides, or any other nomenclature of similar name / nature. This psychic energy or intuitive information is then filtered through our consciousness as conscious thoughts, feelings, smells, visions, etc.
Phone Psychic Readings / Phone Tarot Readings
People often ask me−How can I read them or anyone over the phone? Don't I need to see them in person? The answer is an emphatic no!
The God Source, Energy Source, Spirit Self, Higher Self, Spirit Guides, the WE energy source; yours and mine, the Collective Unconscious, or whatever other names or labels we give it−are all connected energetically to each other and to all things, and we are all one, no matter where we all are. You can be in the same room as me or across the globe, it doesn't matter, and it will not affect your reading.
If you need reassurance, feel free to read testimonials from clients who have received numerous psychic phone readings from me.
Once your psychic appointment is confirmed, I will call you, and I usually call 2-3 minutes early.
Phone calls are made to U.S.A. and Canadian clients only. Clients located in other countries must make an Online / Skype psychic reading appointment.
In-Person Tarot Readings / Psychic Readings
My office is located in the Art Works Gallery, 320 Hull Street, Studio 210, Richmond, VA 23224 near downtown, close to Highways 64 or 95. Street or a paid parking lot is adjacent. To avoid being towed, please do not park in spaces marked “reserved” and pay attention to street signs.
For those who cannot see me in-person, I also provide psychic phone or psychic online (Skype) Tarot readings.
Art Works is home to many of Richmond’s finest artists, photographers, and other artisans. For directions or more information on Art Works Gallery, please click here: Art Works
I do not accept offers from new or newer clients to pay in cash for their appointments. Appointment requests must be confirmed via PayPal.
A good, accurate psychic and one that provides the best psychic reading possible, simultaneously provides a sacred portal to self-discovery. Psychic or Tarot readings may reflect love, soul mate or other relationships, career, money, or financial issues, but all of these experiences are, in fact, an entry point to this self-discovery and spiritual awakening.
We all experience times in our lives when our energy is low, we feel confused, lost, uncertain, sad, or just curious about how, what if, where, or why. Tarot cards are a wonderful tool to discern what is happening, as well as providing clarity of purpose, insight, direction, spiritual guidance, enlightenment, profound understanding, spiritual awakening, and discovery of hidden talents, which provides the means in which to make better life choices or decisions.
Live Online Tarot Reading / Live Online Psychic Reading with Skype
Given this new age we live in, a Skype psychic / Tarot reading provides another way in which to receive a personal, soul-to-soul connection without actually being in the same room, same state, or same country for that matter.
Online psychic readings: As long as you have a microphone and audio to listen (speakers or headphones), I can provide you with a voice reading. The quality of sound (audio) is affected by the speed of your internet connection, so a high-speed connection is best. I do not utilize video, but feel free to do so yourself.
Phone psychic readings: Skype can also be downloaded to your IPhone, IPod, Blackberry, Droid, etc.
After receipt of your Skype Tarot / psychic reading request, I will send an email to you. Along with other information, it provides my Skype name with instructions to add me as a contact. I usually make contact 2-3 minutes before your scheduled appointment time, so please add me as a contact at least 10 minutes prior to your appointment.

Rates for Psychic Events or Parties
Party hosts, please note:
Although I can be funny and even entertaining, I am not “entertainment”. As described throughout my website, my beliefs / philosophies, ethics, and purpose for doing my spiritual work remain unchanged no matter the circumstance of my presence.
Even within a party atmosphere, people are still people with the attending life and spiritual concerns, and it is always my intention to guide, inspire, and enlighten those with whom I come into contact.
Additionally, I am very direct and honest while providing Tarot / psychic readings. While this is a desirable trait under normal circumstances, partygoers are not usually prepared to hear something that could be unpleasant.
I have done psychic / Tarot readings at parties and events for many years, and although very rare, uncomfortable issues may arise during the reading process. Due to consideration as being a "party" atmosphere, please inform your guests in advance, or if you decide to hire me, remain open-minded to the possibility.
To calculate the amount of time (in minutes) that I can spend with each guest, divide 120 (2-hours) by the amount of guests that you estimate would like a reading. Ten guests would be approx. 12 minutes each. Fifteen guests would be approx. 8 minutes. I don’t recommend less than 8 minutes per guest, as this really defeats the purpose of my spiritual work.
If you would like me to be at your event longer than my minimum of 2-hours, indicate this on your initial request. If you ask that I stay beyond the 2-hour minimum at the time of your event, please be prepared to pay any overtime in cash.
I use PayPal Invoices to process ALL payments made via Credit Cards, Debit Cards, or Bank.
Once I receive your request, I will send an email indicating the day and time set for your psychic reading, party / event, or Tarot card class, along with other information. Additionally, using the email address you provided, I will request an invoice through PayPal for payment. In turn, you will receive an email from PayPal saying, “Psychic Sophie” “Here’s your invoice” and it will guide you through the SAFE, EASY, and QUICK payment process via PayPal’s secure system.
Once the invoice is paid, PayPal will send us both a copy, which *confirms* the appointment. I will then see or speak to you on that day/time. For psychic phone or Skype readings, I will contact you.
I do not accept offers from new or newer clients to pay in cash for their appointments. Appointment requests must be confirmed via PayPal. Unpaid invoices will result in cancellation.
When is payment due?
Immediate and In-Person Psychic / Tarot Readings: payment is required at receipt of your invoice or by the day/time indicated in the email that you receive from me.
Future Appointments: payment of your invoice is required a minimum of 24-hours prior to your Tarot / psychic reading appointment.
Learn How to Read Tarot Cards Classes: Payment is required in 2-stages. A non-refundable deposit of $25.00 is required to reserve your seat and confirm your attendance. Thereafter, another invoice will be sent for the remainder of the class course fee less the deposit paid.
Psychic Party or Event Bookings: Payment is required at receipt of your invoice and a minimum of 48 hours prior to your event.
Do I need an account with PayPal to pay the invoice?
NO! You do not need an account with PayPal to use your credit cards or most debit cards. All YOU need is a valid email address.
Paying the invoice sent to you via PayPal is as easy as using a website cart―and ALL major credit cards are accepted!
Once you receive your invoice from Psychic Sophie, simply bypass the request that you log into your PayPal account, and instead, click “Don’t have a PayPal account”, and it will direct you to the payment screen.
Be sure to click “submit” each time you are prompted, otherwise, the payment will not go through. If successful, you will get a receipt of your payment from PayPal.
Please note: providing a confirmed address to PayPal is required for processing, otherwise, payment attempts are denied.
Have a PayPal account?
If you have a PayPal account, log in and you can pay the invoice using your credit cards, debit cards, funds you keep on deposit with PayPal, or you can choose to pay by bank or e-check (in most cases via your personal checking or savings account).
Please note: payments made via e-check will delay your appointment day/time until the check has cleared your bank.
