I love to help others live a richer, deeper life by helping them to connect with the deep pool of Universal wisdom through the use of the tarot and other tools of divination. I use the tarot to help you get a broader understanding of the circumstances at play in your situation. With this awareness, healing and growth can occur.
There is no need for panic in the face of life challenges. We can meet them with grace and in gratitude for the lessons they give, and heal from them quickly if we are able to tap into their deeper meaning. I can help you see the larger picture of your circumstances.
My readings are in-depth. I like for you to understand the reasoning behind the messages I am imparting to you. I like for you to understand how the messages are being delivered to me directly from the symbolism in the images. I also like to explore the more subtle nuances between the cards as they relate to each other. I do this so that you can see how the images in the cards are working as a mirror to your situation, creating a story as they interact with one another.
I am sincere and direct in my delivery of the messages the cards contain. If what I'm seeing is difficult I do my best to present it to you in a heartfelt manner, but I will always say what I see. It is my hope that you will be able to receive the message, and that you can use it to carve out new strategies to create the best possible path forward in your life.
I also like to look to the cards for any advice they may be offering you. I use them to not only help you to more accurately see your situation, but also to offer possible paths for action.
To Predict or Not to Predict
The majority of tarot readers today take on a purely psychological approach to the cards. They see it as a way to uncover secrets of the psyche, as a tool for healing and self-exploration. I am one of these readers that favors this approach, but I also believe that the cards do have the capacity to be used, to some extent, for divination, or predicting the future. However, there are limits to this.
When we lay out the cards we are reading the energies in that particular moment. Sometimes the cards are able to suggest a future trajectory, but keep in mind that this the future is not a static state, determined by fate alone. You also have influence over the matter with the will and the desire you impose upon a situation. The tarot helps you to better see the difference between what it is that you can and cannot change. It empowers you to make wisdom-based decisions.
Therefore, recognize that if a prediction is made it is a slippery slope. It is meant as a guide rather than a final say. YOU have the ultimate agency over your life.
My experience with intuition and divination began almost 20 years ago, with a cup of coffee, in a small and timeless mountain village in northern New Mexico. I stopped into the village's cafe and was pleased to see that there was Turkish coffee on the menu. The owner delivered the cup to my table, and as she walked away casually mentioned that I could bring the cup to her when I finished to have my coffee grounds read.
Instead of taking the grounds to the shop owner, I looked into the cup myself. I was shocked to discover that after a few moments I was able to see my current life story. What it was I needed to be doing was visually displayed within the cup's interior. Stunned, I returned the cup to its saucer and felt this anxious excitement rush through my body. I knew that I had just touched upon something huge.
Since then I have become intimately connected with my intuitive abilities. The tarot is one of many tools I use to tap into the guidance that each of us has inner access to. I understand there is an interconnectedness to the entire Universe, and that interconnectedness runs through the tarot and speaks to us through its unique frequency.
I love to help others live a richer, deeper life by helping them to connect into that deep pool of Universal wisdom through the use of the tarot and other tools of divination. There is no need for panic in the face of life challenges. We can meet them with grace and in gratitude for the lessons they give, and heal from them quickly if we are able to tap into their deeper meaning. I can help you see the larger picture of your circumstances.

Many thanks, Shada! I appreciated your thoughtful & detailed approach! The reading was practical, affirming & encouraging! I feel much more confident in the answers already within! �� Feb 21, 2017 7:02 am
Thank you Shada! I am so appreciative of your thoughtful and personal reading! I definitely feel like I have a better starting point of things to think about and decisions to be made in order to have the best outcome from my current life situation. Oct 30, 2016 11:10 pm
Great reading! Shada was very thorough and took time to explain the cards and how they applied to me. She was accurate and honest. Her reading was very helpful in answering my questions. Oct 25, 2016 6:10 am
Shanda's reading was very insightful and spot on. She did a reading for me earlier in the year and she remembered me and my circumstances. She applied that knowledge to the current reading which was warm, insightful, and thorough. Shanda's reading was very detailed and gave me a good picture of what energies are in my life right now and how to move to a desired outcome. Thank you, Shanda! I really appreciate your excellent work and communication before the reading! Mar 25, 2016 1:03 am
It is not only about anylising a reading for Shada, instead she is makes a huge effort to provide very detailed information which help her clients to reach a point of resolution. It is not always about getting a favorable answer- and whatever course of action she suggests is about well being, emotion, physical and mental. Her love permiates through giving the client confidence. Aug 28, 2015 6:08 pm
Wow Great reading. Very insightful. I was just very amazed. It also helped me to look at myself a bit more. There were some things I was doing to myself that I wasn't aware. She said something that really struck me and opened my eyes. Thanks again! Jan 01, 2014 1:01 am
I received a reading from Shada a few days ago and I am still processing all the information. I have never gotten a tarot reading before and to be honest I was a little skeptical. I asked a question relating to finances and I was shocked by how the reading uncovered and made me aware of long held attitudes and habits I have had for years and years. I never knew a reading could delve so deep as to make me understand the underlining nature of my problem with such clarity. It exposed so much of the surface of these issues I feel ready to deal with them and move past them instead of a feeling of constant worry that they will never be resolved. This may be more information than anyone needs but the skill and intuition that Shada has is a true gift and I implore you to look inside yourself and find a question that plagues you and do a tarot reading with her. YOU WILL BE AMAZED!! Nov 30, 2013 4:11 pm
Shada read my cards when I was getting ready to make a transition from working as an employee to working as a contractor. Wow. I had no idea that readings could get so detailed. The type of information she was giving me not only helped me understand my own question better, but it also became more and more valuable as time passed and things started to manifest in a way strikingly similar to what she had prepared me for. I am so thankful for her guidance. Nov 30, 2013 12:11 am
