Star Major Arcana Rider-Waite Smith Tarot Deck 

If this is the first time you visit my site, please make sure you read the pages regarding questions and my Tarot philosophy before contacting me for a reading!

(I know that both pages are a bit long, but it will be time well spent, and reading them will give you confidence that you are about to contact the right person for your needs. Smile)

Readings can take place face to face (at my office), or via phone (Skype included) after fixing an appointment, or via e-mail; as for the forms of payment I accept, please follow the link.

Since I have a time fee, it goes without saying that the more cards there are in a reading, the higher the price.

Below, I offer you a list of the spreads that I know. If you don't find one that suits you, I'll create one especially for you, customising it to your question, as explained - in Italian - in the content of Module #14 of my Tarot Course.

However, there is an infinity of spreads, from very simple to very complex in structure. As always, the best thing to do is to contact me privately ( This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it ) so that we can decide together about the most appropriate spread for you and/or to ask me for more information about some of the spreads below.
