If you are resident in Jamaica, reading consultations are done as 1-on-1 in-person sessions in my work cottage/office (affectionately known as “The Tea House”). However, I am happy to facilitate phone, mp3 recordings or written readings should the need arise.

Classic Custom Reading - Tara Nikita

Based on your question(s), I design a tarot reading layout tailored to the specific insight you are seeking. I enjoy the process of carefully unpacking your questions for you to come away with the detailed, in-depth insight and actionable guidance that you need.

If you want to shift your perspective, have a higher vantage point from which to view your situation, come away with a strong understanding of the energetic basis of your circumstance, and rediscover your own inherent power to create enriching outcomes, then my approach will gel well with your needs. (Click here for the essential differences between traditional Tarot readings and intuitive counseling – the latter, of course, is my approach).

This tarot reading consultation is designed to get to the heart of your situation and combines with a wide spectrum of themes:-

Relationships – relationship-oriented consultations are intended to bring to your conscious awareness the underlying energetic dynamics within your relationship, and provide guidance for you to move forward. I will tailor the consultation to your specific needs, including such elements as: i) a purposeful assessment of your core relationship needs/style and how this is informing your current relationship experience, ii) a higher perspective: what each person is teaching the other,  iii) the relationship’s current energetic status, as well as past influences iv) strengths and weaknesses of your relationship connection, v) the overall direction in which the relationship is headed, vi) what the relationship needs most to thrive.

Change and transitions – Sometimes it can feel as though the rug has been pulled out from underneath our feet. We may more gracefully navigate challenging times of change and transition when we have a broader spiritual context. Consultations addressing change and transition are designed to retrieve the healing bird’s eye view of your circumstance from your own higher mind and inner guidance.

Life path, career and vocation – Get some perspective on career developments, how you are being asked to contribute your talents and skills to the world, and how you can blossom more into your talents, skills and service. What type of working environment best suits you? What do you need most in a career or job?

Choices and decision-making – Get the guidance and insight you need to make the most informed choices, and a higher perspective on the choices and decisions you need to make.

Emotional healing, feeling stuck or stagnated, self-development and spiritual growth – we may address these in a consultation too.

We cover the same themes in the classic reading consultation, except we use your astrological birth chart, and prognostic astrological techniques (transits, progressions and solar arc directions) to provide even deeper therapeutic insight.

You see, your astrological natal chart is a symbolic diagram of your own wiring and potentials. It outlines your essential energy attunement. If we are empowered with this information, we make choices and decisions that are in alignment with our natural energy flow.  An objective statement of our wiring and energy attunement can also help us to validate what we know about ourselves, resulting in more self-love, self-acceptance, and faith in life.

In addition to providing a snapshot of your wiring and energy attunement, astrology does one more thing which makes it a therapeutic tool that is unparalleled: it outlines your specific timetable of evolution and unfolding. 

Astrological counseling is uniquely and powerfully able to provide you with a CONTEXT for the challenges you are facing at the moment, and how you are being asked to develop and change.

For example, periods of emotional crisis and catharsis can be better understood when you know that (transiting) Pluto is making a contact to the Moon in your birth chart. This period may bring up old resentments that you are being asked to release.

The action of Uranus on your birth planets can cue you in to your urge for change and a desire to do things innovatively and independently.

Neptune making contact with specific planets and angles in your astrological chart can help you understand periods of uncertainty, and feeling like you are lost at sea, unable to take concrete, practical action. Saturn is a powerful symbol of the ways in which periods of adversity and constriction are demanding that you develop more maturity and responsibility.

Astrology lets us know that there are certain times for certain things. During periods of Neptune’s activity, there’s no point in forcing certainty when, according to the unique timetable of your evolution, you need to sit in uncertainty for a while so that latent talents, skills, and resources have the space to emerge.

It’s this kind of thing that makes astrology an immensely powerful intuitive, therapeutic and counseling tool when used with sensitivity and know-how. My approach is not to provide an out of context “chart reading”, but to use astrology to help illuminate what is important for you right now. In this way, the symbols of the chart come alive for the most therapeutic insight and meaningful guidance.

What we do in a session: we look at your birth chart to get clarity on your internal psychic blueprint, and how this blueprint is showing up in your life experience, goals and aspirations; we look at how configurations in your chart reflect internal BELIEFS (positive or negative); we examine your strengths, talents and individual path of mastery/growth; we look at what the chart suggests about resolving patterns that hold you back; we clarify what elements of your personality are in tension.

We use the birth chart to illuminate the deeper factors at play in events/experiences in your life; we examine how your identity is shifting and evolving through time; we illuminate the meaning of periods in your life and the lessons inherent in them; we surrender to the grace and mystery of our experiences, recognizing that there is a cosmic logic to it all.

Please also see here and here for more in-depth information on my approach to astrological counseling. 

I’ll ask you to fill out an in-take form outlining the specific issues you have going on right now, as well as your ACCURATE birth data. An accurate birth time is critical to casting a chart that is correct, and therefore able to give you the most relevant perspectives. An accurate birth time gives you a chart that is YOURS, not someone else’s. (Here’s an article on why an accurate birth time is so crucially important).

For astrological counseling consultations, please note that because of the preparatory work involved, payments must be made in full before your session takes place. Please discuss payment methods with me.

Package of Three Readings - Tara Nikita

Leave no stone unturned with this package of three fully customized in-depth tarot reading consultations. I will work with you over the course of three sessions to help you retrieve the guidance you need. Rather than stuff everything into one single session, this package of three allows you to have the time to integrate messages, guidance and insights between sessions. A package of three allows you to cover a wider variety of issues, without feeling as though you need to rush through any one.

Additionally, working over the course of three sessions has a cumulative effect – each session builds on the insights and processes of the first, helping you to anchor the information in a stronger way. Listening carefully to your concerns, I make notes during your first session, and these notes help me to design a framework for your subsequent sessions. Organize it how you want – you may explore three entirely different themes, or you may choose to explore different facets of a specific situation. (Use within 60 days. The third and final session is discounted).

Four Quadrants Reading - Tara Nikita

Fire, Air, Water, Earth. Your spiritual, mental, emotional and physical bodies. Think of ‘bodies’ here as planes, or realms of experience.

This is a fully collaborative exploration of your spirit, mind, emotion, and physical reality. We will look at their current energetic baselines, as well as a specific pathway to healing for each. The reading is an excellent way to check in with your energy field, in order to improve your relationship with yourself. A fantastic diagnostic tool, the Four Quadrants reading is a great way to initiate healing, and can serve as a starting point for deeper exploration of specific themes in your life.

The purpose of this reading consultation is to bring the deeper energetic currents held within your psyche to the light of your conscious awareness – enabling you to go forward with much more clarity.  


I will ask you to describe your situation with enough detail. I am far more equipped to help you when you reasonably outline the context of your circumstance. In my experience, giving vague information does not typically encourage a nourishing reading for clients. Make your questions as specific as possible to retrieve the most focused information and insight.
