FAQ

Are You Psychic?

Nope.  I also don’t believe that tarot cards have any inherent mystical power, or that they can be used to predict the future.  Rather, I believe that tarot cards are a tool for organizing and externalizing thoughts and feelings in a way that encourages mindfulness, meditation and empowered decision making.  They don’t determine what your future is going to be; They help you create the future you want.

 

How Does Tarot Work?

I have an entire page dedicated to my philosophy on that!  Check it out here.

 

What Should Clients Bring to a Tarot Reading?

Generally speaking clients don’t need to bring anything to a reading.  Depending on where we are meeting you may want to bring a bottled beverage (though if we are meeting at my primary location, Cove Coworking, a selection of free beverages will be provided).  Clients are also encouraged, if they like, to bring something to take notes during the reading and/or to bring a smartphone or other camera to take pictures of the reading.

I do require a chair and a clean surface on which to perform tarot readings, so if I am meeting you in your home or other private venue you have selected please make sure a chair and clean surface are available.  I provide my own snacks and beverages and will never ask you to supply these items.

 

Where are Woven Psyche services available?

I provide in-person, individual tarot readings at Cove Coworking in Dupont Circle, Washington, D.C, or you can request an alternate location, though travel charges may apply.  I can also provide individual tarot readings via phone or Skype anywhere in the world.

For parties, events and private classes I can go anywhere throughout the Washington, DC area.  Whether travel charges apply will depend on the exact location of the event.

I also teach a variety of classes at venues around the D.C. area.

 

What kinds of private events can Woven Psyche read at?

All kinds!  I offer a menu of private event packages to fit a variety of different needs.

Here are just some of the types of events where Woven Psyche can provide tarot readings:

  • Personal parties (Birthday, bachelorette, housewarming, anniversary, etc.)
  • Hangouts with friends (Brunches, Girls’ night in, or let me suggest something!)
  • Big celebrations (Weddings, Bar Mitzvahs, you name it)
  • Corporate events (Retreats, conferences, mixers, orientations, holiday parties…)
  • Business collaborations (Launches, customer appreciation events, shows and exhibitions…)
  • Charity Fundraisers – 501(c)(3) non-profits can apply to have the fee waived


What do Woven Psyche services cost?

Cost varies depending on the service being provided.  As a general rule my base rate for individual tarot readings is $60/hour.  I offer a menu of different private event packages that begin at $200, as well as online programs that are priced as advertised.  Ticketed classes and events vary in price, but generally range from $30 to $100 depending on length.  Pricing for self care sessions and personal retreats varies significantly because these services are highly customized, but clients will always receive a quote before being asked to commit.  For events that are outside the DC Metro area or that are difficult to get to additional travel charges may apply.  Click here to learn more about pricing for Woven Psyche’s Online Tarot Classroom.

Yes, you can!  To purchase a gift certificate, click here.

 

How do you take payment?

I am happy to accept payment via Venmo (e-mail wovenpsyche@gmail.com to arrange) and am also able to take credit card payments online via Square.  For some ticketed events payment may go through Eventbrite.  Alternative methods such as PayPal or Google Wallet can be arranged on request.

 

Does Woven Psyche Ever Give Readings or Let People Attend Events for Free?

On occasion Woven Psyche will provide tarot readings at a free community event or client appreciation event (like a free tarot happy hour) because they’re fun and a great way to let people know what Woven Psyche has to offer.  Woven Psyche will also provide free readings at fundraisers for 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations.

Woven Psyche frequently hears from individuals asking to attend one of Woven Psyche’s ticketed events for free.  Woven Psyche is unfortunately not able to offer free spots at workshops or other events.  Woven Psyche strives to maintain reasonable prices for the Washington D.C. area that are fair to the client while also providing fair compensation for the time, energy, materials, venue and transportation costs, thought, experience and prep work that go into every service that Woven Psyche offers.  Furthermore, this would no be fair to attendees who have paid for tickets.

Woven Psyche’s Instagram and e-mail blasts are free and open to anyone, and frequently feature tidbits of tarot wisdom and other tarot-inspired content.

 

What is Your Refund and Cancellation Policy?

I do not provide refunds.  If you need to cancel an individual appointment for services such as a tarot reading, private event or self care session and you let me know at least 24 hours in advance of your scheduled service I am happy to reschedule to a mutually convenient time or to provide you with a credit for the amount paid toward a future reading or event.

 

What if I Don’t Show Up or Show Up Late?

Individuals who do not show up for a class or reading without contacting me to cancel at least 24 hours in advance will not receive refunds or credits.  If you are running late for an individual reading or other private service I will wait at least 15 minutes if I have not heard from you and at least half an hour if I have heard from you.  Classes and ticketed events with multiple attendees will always start on time.

I have put a lot of thought into my refund policy and it exists for several reasons.  It typically comes into play when someone purchases a ticket to one of my events and doesn’t show up.  If you would like a better understanding of why I don’t offer refunds in this situation, here is a list of five reasons why I don’t offer refunds.

 

Does Woven Psyche Ever Cancel Events or Readings?

Yes.  I will cancel classes/events or readings if I am experiencing medical issues, if I have a family emergency, if there are widespread public transportation failures, or if there is severely inclement weather.  For classes and ticketed events I will also cancel if there simply aren’t enough participants signed up to make it an enriching experience.  If I cancel for any reason you will receive a full refund.  I also do my best to provide as much advance notice as possible.

 

Does Woven Psyche Reserve the Right to Terminate an Event or Reading Early, or to otherwise refuse services?

Yes. I reserve the right to terminate a reading or other event or service upon or after arrival if I am made to feel unsafe or physically or sexually uncomfortable in any way, if the space provided by the client is unsanitary, if I am subjected to harassment, or if anyone present attempts to proselytize me. I also refuse to provide services where the client’s intentions are overtly malicious (for example, the client wants to use magic to cause severe physical harm to another person).  I will not provide refunds or credits for payments already made in the event that I terminate or refuse services under these circumstances.
