When Clients Do Not Take Your Advice and Keep Coming Back for the Same Questions

I saw this question posted in a group I am where basically, the reader gives advice to a client, client doesn’t do said advice and made the situation worse. So client comes back asking the same question again and this becomes a cycle. The client keeps spending money on the same issue and never taking the advice given. The reader is drained and tired of said client and wants to end the relationship they have with the client. The reader asked should she?

Here is my take on this situation…

It is their money, if they are going to waste it by not taking the advice then so be it.

I am also going to add this to my Code of Ethics since this information seems to be missing.

If you are going to spend money on a tarot reading and not take the advice given to you and constantly do this pattern, then that is on you as a client. If you need to keep checking in every day, week, month, on the same issue because you refuse the advice given to you, that is just on you.

Too blunt? Yes I am! Hey…I am not a fraud and taking your money. You, the client, are responsible for your own actions. If I have to keep repeating myself to you for your redundant question that you refuse to follow the advice for as you pay me, then so be it. I don’t mind sounding like a broken record as long as you are paying me for it. Keep this in mind!

I am not saying this out of spite, I am saying this as the reality of the situation.

Yes you have a choice to follow advice or not. Just like you have a choice to keep contacting me for the same question where you get the same advice for and you, the client, not following through.

Something to consider…

When a Tarot or Oracle Card Reading is Really Meant for You & Not Your Question.

I have seen this a few times and I thought I would address this issue.

I would have someone asking about someone or a job and really the reading was about them. It was a message that they needed to have themselves. Oracle cards usually point to that more than tarot. At least in my experience. I find it interesting when this happens, of course I hate sometimes telling it to the client because it isn’t what they asked. They didn’t ask about themselves, but about a person or a job. So what does one do? I do what I am guided to do by my spirit guides. If the message is for them, there is a reason why. Whether they want to give negative feedback because I didn’t answer their question, which does happen because they are mad they aren’t getting a true answer. I just take it with a grain of salt. I love my feedback, but I also can understand the client’s frustration. If I hid the message given to me, would that be fair to the client? No. And in the past, I have done two different readings with two different decks asking the same questions and still would get basically the same answer. That this message is for the client and not the question they are asking.

So understand that this sometimes DOES happen. It is what it is. It is a message you need to take in or understand for your situation to change. It in a way DOES answer your question, just not how you would have imagined it to.

Why My Court Card for Occupation Didn’t Click Till I Really Looked At It?

So I was on a journey of finding out my true career purpose or life purpose in this life. I have seen many videos and articles about “Doing what you love IS your life purpose?” or “Doing what you love can be your passionate career?” I’ve actually felt that a life purpose is one to help your community and never really considered it a “career” of sorts, but I was on a mission to find out what I am to do in this lifetime that would make me happy and would bring in income.

I really love doing tarot readings. I love digging in deep to the core and finding the little nitty gritty stuff that many don’t see in their own lives. It also helps me to help others see in a new light. Showing different faucets to show different paths and allowing the client to choose which is best.

So years ago, I did a free natal chart and saw my midheaven, which is your 10th house, as Pisces. Which Pisces is a very intuitive, almost psychic sign as it is. Pisces can feel things so deep and need grounding to get the energy to lay low for awhile. It can be exhausting at times to deal with so much. So I am thinking OK this sounds good. But honestly, that is just a layer in trying to find out what your place in this world really is. My 10th house also houses some planets and asteroids in Aries sign. Aries is a go-getter with fire running through their veins. They love to be in charge and want to take the helm. Although they can also have a sensitive side as well, but when hurt they are full on rage of emotions no one wants to get in their fire for.

Now that you know this story, lets continue on…if you are still here and I haven’t lost you yet.

So whenever I ask about a career of what I should do with my life, I constantly get Queen of Wands which is also with II The High Priestess or Queen of Swords in a reading. Queen of Wands is in the advice position and one of the other two cards is in the outcome position. Alrighty then. I never really felt like the Queen of Wands. I never felt vibrant with embers flowing in my hair, feeling like I can take on the world. So I looked at this card. Well, I “thought” I did.  Turns out, I didn’t. So I did some researching recently on this card, which has also spike up my curious nature to research all the other cards. And I have never seen the court cards in a different light till the Queen of Wands. So she has sunflowers, lions, and a black cat…wait…a black cat? Why is this black cat catching my eye for? Why am I all of a sudden drawn to this black cat symbol? So I researched this and was blown away in some aspects. The black cat apparently can represent the supernatural. Mysteries. Witchcraft. Divination. Psychic abilities. Intuition. Mysticism. There is debate on what this symbol actually truly means too. Some would also say overcoming darkness. Being independent. Why not all of those into one symbol?

Then I looked into the astrology of this card and that answered my question loud and clear. Queen of Wands has Aries with a helping of Pisces in it. So this person is a leader, usually self employed, who is independent and uses her intuition to help her in her quests. The Queen of Wands with the help of the Black Cat.

This basically confirmed a couple of things for me.

  1. I really need to study the court cards more! (Which I am!)
  2. I am already following my career. I am self-employed using my intuition, psychic gifts to help others in their time of needs.

Interesting huh? LMAO!

It makes me look at the court cards in a new way now. A way that I never really noticed before or took into consideration. Being a tarot reader means you are constantly developing your gifts. You are constantly reading about the subject. Learning. It isn’t one that just dies down once you learn the meanings of the cards. A tarot reader constantly grows.

FAQ: Why Charge Higher on Phone Services than with E-mail Tarot Readings?

FAQ: Why Charge Higher on Phone Services than with E-mail Tarot Readings?

I get this question a lot actually and what it really comes down to is trying to earn a living while dealing with fees for certain sites.

Phone or Webchat tarot/psychic services are considered “on demand.” Meaning that you are wanting the service now while e-mail readings or more like “I can wait 24 hours.” Which for e-mail readings really doesn’t take me that long, but I need to put a disclosure of that there in case something may happen in my life that would affect a reading from me. Normally within a 2 hour time frame unless I am asleep for e-mail readings.

But let’s get back to the topic of charging more for phone/webchat tarot readings!

There are some sites that do a 40% fee for whatever you charge. So if I were to charge $1/minute, I would make $0.60 a minute. Then there are sites out there that will take $0.40 off what you charge per minute plus take an additional 43% off that amount. So if I were to do $1/minute, I would earn $0.60/minute minus 43% which makes it to be about $0.258/minute. And keep in mind some people have to bid to be in the top slot on the site to be seen by potential clients. Those prices vary extremely depending on how long a person has been on the site and the traffic they are able to pull in plus the money that they can give that site. I have seen for top spots on certain sites just on the front page from $5 to $50 depending on how new I was. Each click by a client, charges that person once who is bidding for a top spot. Plus marketing outside of the site to be seen.

With all these fees on these sites, tarot readers aren’t ranking in the dough. We aren’t swimming around in a pool of cash. We aren’t making what you think we are. Being self-employed in itself costs money to be seen. Sure I can advertise for free on certain social platforms to be seen, but sometimes you have to put the monetary effort in as well. So even though in your mind you think that the person who is charging $1.00/minute is making $60/hour, they are making probably about $5/hour after costs and trying to obtain clients and to be seen by competing with competition.

I hope this clears up the air for those of you who have been wondering about the difference in prices.
