Code of Ethical Conduct

  • Professionalism

    • I will never refuse a Client  on the Grounds of Race, Ethnic Background, Religious Belief, Disability or Sexual Orientation.

    • Adherence to Applicable Laws: A tarot professional will take the initiative to be knowledgeable of all applicable laws including but not limited to fortune telling statutes and local municipal codes that may cover their business or the practice of tarot.  

    • Limitations: A tarot professional shall never claim the ability to cure another of ailments outside the lawful practice of medicine or provide financial benefits outside the lawful practice of financial analysis and management. The tarot professional shall never purport to offer legal, medical, or financial advice. Unless the tarot professional also possesses the applicable educational background, certifications, and/or qualifications to be a psychologist, therapist, counselor, or other mental health professional, he or she shall not purport to be one. I do not predict the Lotto Numbers. I Do Not Invoke or Remove Spells or Curses.

    • Referrals to Qualified Professionals: A tarot professional owes a reasonable duty of care to his or her client and if an inquiry touches upon legal matters, even by a tangential connection or in passing, the tarot professional will refer the client to seek the counsel of a licensed attorney. If an inquiry touches upon health or medical matters, even by a tangential connection or in passing, the tarot professional will refer the client to seek diagnosis by a licensed medical doctor. If an inquiry touches upon financial or real property matters, even by a tangential connection or in passing, the tarot professional will refer the client to seek advice from a qualified financial consultant, analyst, or real estate professional. 

    • No Dishonesty, Fraud, Deceit, or Misrepresentations: A tarot professional shall not use tarot in a way that purports definitive and absolute knowledge of the future or of matters that are otherwise hidden or occult. The tarot professional shall not represent him or herself as matter-of-factly having communication, access to, or knowledge of any supernatural phenomena. The tarot professional shall never guarantee any one outcome, positive or negative. A tarot professional shall never engage in deceptive business or unfair trade practices. A tarot professional shall make no misrepresentations about his or her competency, certifications, qualifications, or abilities.

    • Third Party Consent. A tarot professional is discouraged from providing reading services on inquiries into the personal affairs, business, intentions, mental faculties, or activities of third parties who are not present for the reading, unless the client represents and warrants to the tarot professional that such third party’s express consent has been obtained. A tarot professional may reasonably rely on such a representation made by a client, though best practices would include noting the reliance in writing in the tarot professional’s notes. However, a tarot professional may provide reading services on inquiries about how the client’s affairs, business, intentions, mental faculties, or activities might be affected by that third party.​

  • Refusal of Services

    • I reserve the right to refuse service, for any reason.

    • Duty to Reject Subsequent Reading Requests: If at any time a tarot professional believes or has reason to believe that a client is using tarot readings to substitute, and not merely supplement, counseling from a qualified mental health professional, then he or she has a duty to reject subsequent reading requests from the client and to refer the client to seek qualified mental professional support. However, tarot readings may be used as a supplement to qualified counseling or serve the function of life coaching or general spiritual guidance.

    • I do not offer Tarot Readings to anyone under 18 years of age.  By accepting this reading you confirm you are 18 years of age or over.

  • Communications

    • No Duty to Retain Records: A tarot professional does not owe a client any duty to retain the client’s reading records. A tarot professional may, at the discretion of his or her customary practice, retain records or files on client readings.

  • Duty of Confidentiality

    • Duty of Confidentiality: Although there is not likely to be a legal evidentiary privilege between a tarot professional and client, a tarot professional nonetheless agrees on his or her own accord to be bound by a duty of confidentiality. A tarot professional shall not reveal personal or private information relating to a client reading unless that client has given informed consent.

    • Reasonable Diligence to Protect Confidentiality: The tarot professional shall exercise reasonable efforts to prevent the inadvertent or unauthorized disclosure of or access to information relating to his or her clients, which includes password protection to any electronic accounts, computers, or data storage units that would include client files and lock and key to any physical storage units containing hard copy files.

    • Exceptions. However, tarot professionals may reveal personal or otherwise private information relating to a client reading if the tarot professional reasonably believes it is necessary to prevent substantial bodily harm or death, or a court order overrides the confidentiality. Partial information from a tarot reading may be disclosed under the client’s anonymity for academic, civic, census, survey, or research purposes.
