Policy updates

The policies page is reviewed and updated regularly, usually about every other month. The essentials are always available at the bottom of every single page: Tarot doesn’t predict the future or read minds & no medical or pregnancy questions are accepted. Basically this is entertainment, inspiration, encouragement, insight, advice and fun – but that’s it. Use it all at your own risk. No lifeguard on duty. Wash your hands. I’m an artist. You can’t sue me for art-ing even if you don’t like what was art-ed in a session.

When you purchase or schedule a reading, that indicates your agreement with all stated policies.

Here is the 2022 update for your reading displeasure. Fair warning – it’s boring.
