These are the ways that I am committed to do this type of work.
CODE OF ETHICS
CODE OF ETHICS
Mission: As a Tarot professional I strive to uphold the highest ethical standards in all services rendered. I will act affirmatively toward maintaining public trust in the Tarot profession.
Role of the Tarot Professional: Tarot provides the client with intuitive guidance. Tarot serves to empower a client within the framework of the client’s own spiritual beliefs and practices. A Tarot reader cannot predict the future. A Tarot reader cannot make decisions for a client. A Tarot reading with me is meant to empower you, encourage you, and help you understand that you will always have choices. From time to time, my psychic forces drive my Tarot readings.
Adherence to Applicable Laws: I will take the initiative to be knowledgeable of all applicable laws that may cover the practice of Tarot.
Duty of Confidentiality: I will keep confidential the names of clients and all information shared or discussed during readings, unless otherwise requested by the client or required by law or court order.
No Duty to Retain Records: I do not owe a client any duty to retain a client’s reading records.
Limitations: I never claim the ability to cure another of ailments outside the practice of medicine. I shall never claim to offer legal, medical, financial advice or any information concerning the outcome of gambling in any form. I will refer clients to seek advice like this elsewhere. Tarot is not designed to predict future events but rather to assist the client in facing forces in the universe beyond personal control. I will avoid questions concerning physical death and the outcome of pregnancy.
Duty to Reject Subsequent Reading Requests: If I believe that a client is using Tarot readings as a substitute for counseling from a mental health professional, then I am obligated to reject further readings. However, my Tarot readings may be used to serve as general spiritual guidance.
Third Party Consent: I am reluctant to provide reading services concerning the personal affairs, business, intentions, mental faculties, or activities of third parties who are not present for the reading. However, if the client represents to me that such third party’s consent has been obtained then I may accept the question on a case-by-case basis. This may include rephrasing and re-focusing the question.
Equal Respect: I will treat all my clients with equal respect, regardless of their national origin, class, education, race, religion, gender, age, or sexual preference.
Minors: I will never knowingly collect any on-line information from anyone under the age of 18.
Statement of Fees: I shall state my service fees before the start of a reading. I will clearly communicate my fee schedule, payment terms, and collect payment prior to the commencement of any reading.
Same Question: I will decline a request for a reading if the querent has asked precisely the same question within the past 30 days. Our lives move through time in continuous and eternal change. A Tarot reading is a snapshot in the flow of the river of time.
Certification Disclosure: I will provide any certification that is related to Tarot practice if the client asks me. A Tarot professional is not required to be certified and there are widely varying degrees of experience and skill among readers.
General Practice Disclosures: I shall post a disclosure statement prominently at office locations, storefronts, on websites, reading venues, or commercial marketing materials that states essentially as follows:
Disclosure Statement: A tarot professional can’t predict the future with utmost certainty. For decisions that will affect your legal, financial, or medical condition, please don’t rely on tarot readings. Also, a Tarot reading cannot replace mental health care. A Tarot reading can only facilitate how you cope spiritually with a given situation. In some legal jurisdictions, I am required to say that Tarot readings should be for entertainment purposes only. Your Tarot professional is bound by a self-imposed code of ethics. I do not provide Tarot readings for parties and entertainment.
