Announcing My New Tarot Blog.

Announcing My New Tarot Blog.

Over the past few days I have been considering ways in which I can improve our website to provide a better user experience for our clients and readers alike.  Lately I noticed the site was becoming cluttered and disorganized.  So a couple of weeks ago I created a sub-domain which is called simply “Tarot Blog” on which I will post our free articles on Tarot and Spirituality.  Our main site “Tarot By Ralph,” rather than being a combination of free material and paid service information, will be dedicated to presenting information about buying Tarot Readings and other services which we may offer in the not so distant future.

The new sub-domain is already listed in the site menu at top.  It is titled simply “Tarot Blog.”  Tarot Blog will be updated periodically and will contain free articles on Tarot and Spirituality.  The free articles already listed on the main “Tarot By Ralph” site will be gradually migrated to the new site.  Hopefully in the next few weeks, the migration will be complete and clients can come to “Tarot By Ralph” for information about Tarot Readings and other paid services, and readers will be able to go to “Tarot Blog” to take advantage of our free offerings.

To access the new Tarot Blog, either use the link in the menu bar above, or click on the link below.  Also, feel free to leave a comment to let me know what you think.

About Ralph.

About Ralph.



Ralph has been a student of the Tarot since the 1970’s.  Born and raised in Mid-America, he felt a calling to ministry at an early age and went on to study for the Catholic priesthood in both minor and major seminaries.  His studies included a focus on several major World Religions including Hinduism and Buddhism.  He served in a traditional Disciples Of Christ Church as senior pastor for 6 years, and then left that mission to pursue private non-denominational and non-sectarian ministry.  He started reading Tarot professionally around 2008 doing phone readings for Keen and other networks. Ralph is a seasoned Spiritual Counselor, Meditation Practitioner, and Mystic with a broad universal understanding of things.  In addition to Tarot, Ralph has self studied other Esoteric subjects including The Kybalion, Wicca and Neo-Pagan Spirituality; and those studies are continuing.  His main focus is on helping clients to find clarity in their lives, offering his services in an open non-judgmental way.

Why Get A Tarot Reading?

Why Get A Tarot Reading?

Why get a Tarot Reading? 

Well, different people are going to have different reasons for seeking out the services of a Tarot Reader.  I come from the perspective of a Spiritual Counselor and Life Coach, and to me the Tarot is a fun way to answer questions from different perspectives and to begin seeing life in different ways.  It provides an enjoyable way to probe the deeper issues of life in a non-judgmental manner, and even to reveal hidden issues which neither the reader nor the client saw at first glance.  Tarot, with it’s symbolism, is a fantastic tool to help us think outside of the box and to facilitate more creative thinking in general.

Some use the Tarot to connect with the God or Spiritual Beings of their understanding, and this is definitely my perspective as well.  Still others use the Tarot to probe more deeply into their own Subconsciousness and the Collective Unconsciousness.  As a reader who has been working with Tarot since the 1970’s, I’ve definitely learned to appreciate Tarot in many different ways and have learned to rely on the cards to help myself through many of life’s uncertainties.

Of course the choice as to whether or not to get a Tarot Reading is totally up to the client.  Some may get their first reading simply out of curiosity, and this is a perfect place to start for both the client getting a reading and the novice seeker wanting to learn how to do readings for themselves.  Others may have a long history in consulting the cards and may already know full well what to expect.  Whatever your point of view we here at Tarot By Ralph will work to make your reading experience an enjoyable and enlightening one.

Why Get A Reading With Ralph?

Here at Tarot By Ralph your reader has a long professional relationship with the Tarot.  Ralph has been reading Tarot since the 1970’s, and turned pro around 10 years ago doing phone readings on a few major psychic networks.  I are now building up my own private brand in an effort to become more independent and to help save my clients their own hard earned cash too.  You see, professional phone reading networks are a great place to get started in Tarot reading, but they do charge the reader about 55% of their daily profits, which is a huge business expense.  This expense forces the reader to set their rates at around $3.00 per minute or higher just to get by.  Being an independent brand, Tarot By Ralph can offer services at half that rate and still provide great quality products for our clients.

Tarot Superstitions: Is It OK To Read For Yourself?

Tarot Superstitions: Is It OK To Read For Yourself?


One question that comes up from time to time in the world of Tarot reading is, “Is it OK for me to read Tarot for myself?” There are those who would answer, “No,” and there are others who regard that old belief as mere superstition. Still, those who answer “No,” do have a point, which I will deal with shortly.

Personally I read for myself almost daily. If a question comes up that I need a little guidance from the world of Spirit on, I break out my deck, ask my question, and then start throwing the cards on the table. And, most of the time, the practice works perfectly. But there are some times when the assistance of another reader is needed.

I have found that if a question is too serious or too personal – one we might not be able to easily detach ourselves from in order to give a good objective reading – then it is best to seek a third party for a more objective view. Serious issues like a family or personal crisis are perfect examples of when it might be better to seek out the guidance of another professional reader. As human beings, sometimes we like to sugar coat things when it comes to personal issues. And other times, in a situation of extreme crisis or drama, we may tend to go to the other extreme and be too hard on ourselves. At times like these having a trusted third party we can use to seek deeper guidance from is a valuable asset indeed. And when those situations arise, I believe it is best to seek out the guidance of another Tarot reader and not go it alone.

There is an old saying, “The lawyer who represents himself in a court of law has a fool for a client.” And there is a lot of truth in that statement. How can a lawyer, no matter how good he or she is, be able to detach from the situation at hand completely enough to do a professional job? Having another lawyer who can see things more objectively with far less personal attachment and prejudice, would be a far better choice than representing oneself. Or we can see this question from a different perspective by thinking of doctors and dentists. How many doctors perform surgery on themselves? How many dentists work on their own teeth? Probably not that many. Even if you are an extreme do it yourself’er, there are occasions where seeking out the help of another professional is vital.

Now, if a person is just learning the art of Tarot and is looking for ways to practice, a great way to get that practice is by doing readings for yourself, and then branching out by doing readings for friends and family members. And again, so long as a person is doing general readings of a lighter nature, I see no problems in doing readings for yourself. Doing readings for yourself is a fun way to learn and gain additional experience.  I do general energy readings for myself and my family pretty much on a daily basis, and it all works out fine. But, if you are facing a more extreme situation where you need some friendly advice from Spirit, the cards, and another human being, then it is best to seek out the advice of another trusted reader and lay your soul bear as it were.

No person is an island. There are situations we can handle on our own just fine, and in those situations the do it yourself method is great. But, when you want to go deeper into a probing question – one in which a fresh pair of eyes and perspective is vital – then we must feel free to ask for help and to accept that help. We do not always have all the right answers. On a bad day, we may not even have all the right questions. In those circumstances, seeking help and guidance from another reader makes sense. And helping bring clarity to other people is what the art of Tarot Reading is all about.
