Tarot Readings

About Nikki:

Nikki is a highly regarded tarot card reader, energy worker and intuitive.  She is clairvoyant, clairaudient, and able to see spirits. Working as a professional in the community for the last 6 years, she has gained quite a following. Not only does she read in San Diego, Phoenix and for others all across the country, she travels several times a year to the San Francisco Bay Area, her second home base.

A student of metaphysics since 2003, Nikki started reading for family and friends around 2006. Her readings were so on point and popular that it eventually turned into a permanent occupation.

How do readings work?

The tarot is comprised of 78 cards which are read right side up as well as reversed. They signify people, places, events & emotions. Through the cards you can tap into a persons energy to get a story or an impression of what is going on in their life. It is these impressions that can:

  • Help confirm you are on the right track
  • Assist you in selecting the best path when faced with several choices.
  • Give you some insight into what is going on with and around others in your life

The best part about everything is that we as human beings have free will. So if you come across something in a reading that you don’t like, remember that you have the option to change it based on the decisions that you make. Sometimes it is difficult to alter your path, but not impossible. We are all responsible for the choices we make. And those can change a reading at any time.

What kinds of questions do people ask in a reading?

Most people ask about the following categories: love, health, money, business & relationships

If you want a tarot card reading, but don’t know where to start, I always suggest a basic energy check. This way the most pressing or important items come up for you to direct your attention to. And you can always ask additional questions from here if you like. It’s a great starting point. Alternatively, if you have too many questions, and a limited amount of time for the reading, I also suggest this spread. It usually tells you exactly what you need to know.

How did you get started/learn how to do all this?

Unfortunately, there are tarot card readers out there who are not that great. I went to see one and had a terribly upsetting reading. Afterwards I was standing outside the shop in tears when a man came over to ask if I was alright. I told him I had just gotten a reading and it didn’t go very well. After asking a few questions about my experience, he told me that he was a tarot reader as well. And that he would be happy to give me a reading just down the street at a local coffee shop. I agreed, and finally got the reading I needed that day.

We talked for a bit afterwards and I expressed an interest in the cards. I had a set I purchased in college but had not been able to work with them on my own. He agreed to take me on as a student, and we met every week at that coffee shop for hours. As we met, we got to know each other and became friends. Then we became best friends. And every year on November 6th we celebrate our friendship anniversary. I’m always thankful for that terrible reading. Not only did I get mentor, and a wonderful friend out of it, but I’m able to work with the cards on my own now. And it allows me to help others in a positive way, which is what a good reading should be like.

For the past few years, I have been very focused on where I wanted to go in life. However, due to a few major changes, for several months now I’ve felt myself not as clear about what I really wanted. I went to see Nikki for a 30 minute psychic reading and was totally blown away! Everything was spot-on, and I got a ton of value out of our session. I left there with some good insight and some tactics for improving the quality of my business and emotional health. Will be a consistent client now and I highly recommend the psychic reading for anyone looking to improve their life in any area (or several areas).

I met Nikki through a close friend of mine over a year ago and wow am I lucky to have her in my life. She is EVERYTHING and more that you could ask for out of a psychic, spiritual healer and friend.  After speaking to many psychics for a long time and never meeting one that was spot on 24/7 I was blessed when she came into my life. She has been spot on about every single thing thus far. You are lucky if you can get an appointment with her as she is truly one of a kind.

I can’t say enough good things about my tarot readings with Nikki! From just the initial interaction, you’re immediately put at ease because she’s so sweet and calming and she manages to keep a positive perspective even when things get serious. I walked into my reading wanting Nikki and the cards to tell me exactly what was going to happen in my future to and what I needed to do to get the outcome I wanted. A lot of direct insight that she gave me about future conversations definitely came true. Even word for word at some point. However, this was balanced with the reassurance that I can make my life what I want to make of it and shouldn’t give into the idea that my future is already set. She also changed my perspective on certain ideas I had set in my mind. She also offered a lot of insightful questions to meditate on so I could figure out what I truly want in life.

I have been going to Nikki for a few years now. One of my former coworkers recommended me to her since I was going through a very hard time in my life. Ever since then I have not stopped going back. Nikki is so amazing at what she does. She is very professional, punctual, super friendly and sweet. She makes it really easy to understand when she’s reading your cards. Apart from her doing my tarot card readings, I have built a friendship/relationship with her. And although it is my journey she has been such an amazing guide and friend in my life and I am very thankful for her. She has definitely been a big part of my growth, and has helped me get out of my comfort zone with a lot of things. I would 150% recommend Nikki for any tarot card readings.

Nikki is amazing. The way she interprets the cards and messages is very natural. The symbolism on the cards makes sense. I went in without any experience with tarot card readings, thinking I wasn’t going to tell her anything, and see how well the cards could “read my mind” or something, but I quickly found that you can get better answers if you’re asking the right questions. She made it very fluid and easy for me to ask questions and listen to what the cards said, which brought up appropriate follow up questions. Overall it was enlightening and empowering. Thank you for sharing your gift Nikki!
