COMMON QUESTIONS

It is a legal requirement that I include a disclaimer on this site:

In accordance with UK law I must state that tarot readings given here are for entertainment purposes only. Clients are responsible for their own life choices and decisions; I am not qualified to give legal, financial, or medical advice.

Whilst I practice Tarot as a healing and transformational tool, it cannot and should not replace medical health advice from a trained professional. You should never forgo seeing a doctor if you have any concerns about your physical health.

This service is for over 18s only. By using this service you confirm that you are over 18 and that you understand and agree with these terms.

What kind of tarot reader are you?

I am an intuitive and empathic tarot practitioner with a holistic approach. This means I integrate astrology, numerology, Black radical pedagogy, and other forms of alternative knowledge into my spiritual practice.

By profession I’m a cultural sociologist and passionate educator, and this informs my approach to the spiritual arts. I believe in the integration of the mind and the heart; that the intellectual has a place in the spiritual, and this can be the most beautiful and empowering aspect of the esoteric.

Why do you talk about Blackness so much, spirituality has nothing to do with race?

Understanding spiritual laws and principles can help us to break free of the pathology of the racial hierarchy that has been created in our global culture, (as well as other forms of oppression).

Rather than a withdrawal from life, that freedom requires us to engage with the present culture and our local/global communities even more closely. By very nature of being born a Black woman my commitment is to the healing of my community and culture, though my work goes much further than this.

By using my personal experience, and my professional expertise in the field of critical race studies, I identify the areas of Black life most in need of radical spiritual attention, and the best methods of practicing radical love in the context of Blackness.

Do you give astrological/birth chart readings?

Yes. I’m an avid student of astropsychology and astrological counselling. I truly believe the greatest power of astrology is not necessarily in the pursuit of future predictions, but in gaining an understanding of our inner patterns & proclivities, and using this information for fundamental transformation of the personality toward a more balanced and empowered life. The astrological birth chart is the key to this. If you would like a birth chart reading please email me at leonanichole@gmail.com

Why do you charge for some of your work/readings, shouldn’t spiritual work just be about service and not profit?

No doubt I do this because I love to, and because it allows me to be of service. But nothing in this world is “free” even if we aren’t in the habit of acknowledging the complexity of cost. Some things cost us time, or emotion, or physical energy. Everything we do is based on the principle of exchange; payment – which doesn’t have to be monetary – is a way of establishing value.

Poverty consciousness and scarcity awareness promotes a negative perspective on  money/currency. It’s a benign resource. Your payment helps to sustain my life’s work, and my wisdom and insight can help to sustain and transform yours.
