Booking a reading

I was lucky to have been brought up in a home where reading tarot cards was seen as something natural and normal and used by my mother, aunt and cousins. My grandmother was a reader too using her intuition and knowing to assist those around her. I see this as a healing art that is part of my family lineage. I don’t use the tarot as fortune telling device but a way to access our natural intuition and tune into our own sense of knowing. Tarot is a way to give images that speak for the still, quiet voice within.

I love to work as a ‘bridge’ a kind of tarot interpreter to assist others to understand their own cards and also to learn how to read the tarot for themselves.

Here are 3 Tarot spreads that I have created to help me to not only assist others in their readings but to also help me navigate and find my own way home. My wish is that they help you to do the same.

TESTIMONIALS 

My session with Julia got to the core of my reason for being on this Earth! It also shone a light on my deepest woundings,  that hold me back from being the person I am, from living my highest potential and Blessed life. It was the story of this life time, revealing the myths and the truths for what they really were. I loved the reading, it gave me so much clarity and freedom to live the blessed version of my life, not the afraid and lonely version.. Shining forth!

‘I had been in lockdown, scared to move either way for some unknown fear that was clawing in the pit of my stomach. I was feeling melancholy and having overwhelming thoughts, questioning everything I stood for and struggling with my life path. Julia’s reading unlocked answers on a cosmic level. In her shadow reading with me I got to face this fear with Julia’s assistance and found out that what I truly feared more than anything else was being myself and shining. I know right?! I feared owning my medicine, truly owning it.

It was time to come out of the cave and offer my medicine to all, rather than to a select few. I had been dulling myself down so as not to gain attention. Trying to contain my energy rather than share it. It was time to come out and that’s why I was afraid. Julia touched on a past life issue of a fear of persecution, fear of judgement from others – it has led me to wanting to ‘fit in’, wanting to be liked and normal (oh the horror). My fear was of showing my power and being ridiculed for my light. Fear of being labelled a show off. Fear of being noticed.

I am a healer, nurse, wise woman, witch, death walker and death doula. I walk between worlds and I have for as long as I remember. I’m the one holding your blood and guts in my hands. I’m the one with you as you take your last breath. Julia’s shadow reading was like being given a mirror to hold up to my face and there was no escape. It showed me the past, my shadow and the deepest locked away feelings and memories that I held at my core. Knowing and facing these fears helped me to step through them to embrace all that I am.’

“It is terribly lonely at times, navigating the paths within.  There are sometimes moments when the moon is obscured by clouds and we are plunged into darkness while in unfamiliar territory. Without guides on the path, emerging with glowing lanterns of truth at precisely the right moment, how could any of us possibly find a way forward? Julia, you have emerged with your lantern at several such moments for me over the past year. The equinox balance reading you gave me a week before my 40th birthday helped me to find a sense of vibrant hope and possibility once more. I’ve been stuck for such a long time, with The Hermit holding me in a long initiation into deeper and deeper realms of myself as I tried to come to terms with the many challenges of my past. With the arrival of Spring and my birthday, I wanted to venture into the light once more, but I had forgotten how to. Your reading showed me how to emerge – what to focus on, and what to leave behind. The Liontail medicine doll you made for me has also been weaving her magic – I am once more risking being seen, bringing my gifts into the world. Julia, I feel like you are one of my heart sisters. Your strength and wisdom hold up mirrors into my experiences in ways that few others can.  I feel part of the circle you have drawn, and I am so deeply grateful. Thank you, thank you.”  Nicole 2013

 

‘Thank you Julia, for your compassion, generosity and your wisdom. I am still in the afterglow from my reading with you. It has had such long lasting positive effects on me and even if I begin to doubt myself, I remember the reading and I regain my faith in myself and the path that I am on. It has definitely put a spring in my step and made me feel really good about myself.’  Nicole


‘Julia’s reading helped me become clear of my own inner knowing and of what actions to take. Through the cards, Julia guided me back to a point of certainty and trust in my own inner compass.’ Dr John Hare, Chiropractor and Mysteries Teacher, Tree of Life

Julia is a gifted teacher with a great depth of understanding of the Tarot and its uses in every day life. Her courses provide an in depth exploration of the Tarot, drawing on spiritual, psychological and intellectual realms. Julia has a warm and intuitive style with a grounded and intelligent presence. She has a particular understanding of the psychological archetypes embedded in the Tarot, and uses this knowledge to make the mysteries of the Tarot accessible to everyone. FIONA, PSYCHOLOGIST

 

I had no idea what to expect as a beginner attending this course. What I found was a door that opened to the history, symbolism and magic of Tarot. Julia has an amazing knowledge and understanding of the Tarot and shares with you different interpretations as well as her personal experience. I love attending this class and get sad each week when it is over! These classes have had such a calming and enriching effect on my life in all aspects. RACHEL

 

I can’t recommend Julia’s course ‘The Path Within’ highly enough. I had attempted to learn to read the Tarot for many years but struggled with information overload and found learning from books very confusing. Julia really brings the cards to life and encourages an intuitive approach which was freeing and helped it to all make sense. I found I was able to read with Julia’s guidance right from the beginning. The course well planned and thoroughly enjoyable. I learnt so much about myself during the 12 weeks and felt I had a strong enough understanding of the cards to start reading professionally after it was completed. Within a month of finishing the course I performed back to back readings confidently and with accuracy at a charity expo and I’m now looking forward to reading at every opportunity. I encourage anyone with a personal or professional interest in Tarot to go on this journey as it’s rewarding and comprehensive. As a teacher Julia is extremely warm, approachable and really knows her stuff!  RHIANNON

 

Julia is a very creative and nurturing teacher, she encourages and helps to develop your intuitive and spiritual connection. I have enjoyed the course immensely and recommend it to those who are interested in experiencing Tarot for their own personal use or to become a professional reader. TANYA FLYNN

 

I recently completed The Path Within with Julia, it’s been the most uplifting thing I’ve done in years. I’ve always been interested in the tarot but this class made it all real. Julia is a fantastic teacher and intuitive healer. The classes are fun with something new each week, I can’t wait to get there and when I leave I’m on cloud 9 – fascinated to learn more and more. I’m now confidently reading for family and friends, the more I practice the more intuitive and grounded I’m becoming. CHARLOTTE

I have learnt more in Julia’s 3 month Tarot course than in the 30 years I’ve had my cards.’ BRIAN

I have loved doing The Path Within course with Julia….it has been fascinating. Julia is a great teacher and mentor…very warm, patient, kind, funny and nothing is too much trouble. She has extensive knowledge of Tarot but also so much more. The course handouts were beautiful and of a really high standard. The course was really friendly with an interesting mix of people and it has become the highlight of my week. I have learnt so much…not only about Tarot but also about myself and my intuition. It is a skill that I can use everyday and has opened up a whole new way of thinking. I can’t recommend this course or Julia enough. CHARLOTTE
I wholeheartedly encourage anyone to do Julia’s courses – a heap of fun and you learn so much about Tarot, meditation and, of course, yourself. Julia is an absolute inspiration, full of bright energy and vitality and a truly wonderful teacher and person. I immediately knew I wanted to do Julia’s tarot course and, I believe, I was meant to meet Julia to teach and help me to heal myself and go forward with life. I can’t wait for Thursday nights and I come out of the class full of energy, feeling uplifted, but calm all at the same time!!  SHARYN

Attending The Path Within Tarot Course was a very positive experience. Having previous knowledge of Tarot, this course offered me a different perspective and allowed me the space to delve deeper into the Tarot experience. It has added richness and depth to my Tarot knowledge, so that I am a more well rounded and confident reader. Julia is a spirited and compassionate teacher who generously shares her wisdom with integrity and humour. Her teaching approach is very inclusive and “hands on” – the perfect way to get to know the mysteries of the Tarot!   JO 2010
