Frequently Asked Questions
How do I order a card reading from you?
Simply click on the 'Readings' tab on the main page and select the type of reading you would like to have and add it to your cart. Proceed to the payment section. Once I recieve payment, I will send you a receipt reply email with further instructions.
Who are you?
I am a Seer and Diviner in my early-50's, a wife, mother, grandmother as well as commander of a feline army. I have been practicing cartomancy for over thirty years.
Why is this place called "Mama Rue's Head & Hand"?
I chose the name Mama Rue because that is the name Spirit fed me. As for the "Head & Hand" part, consider that divination of any kind requires the use of the mind whether the tools used are combined with psychic intuition, spirit guidance or innate/acquired ability. It's also where the querent's question is formed. The cards are then shuffled, cut and laid out by the hands. And there you have it.
Which cards do you use in the readings you offer here?
I am currently working with a Rider-Waite-Smith tarot deck, the Golden Tarot, the Crowley Thoth tarot deck, and the Murray Hope Way of the Cartouche Egyptian oracle cards deck.
How do I know you are actually reading real cards versus using a computer program with meanings you can copy and paste into a report?
My readings are always performed with actual decks of cards using my intuition and skill. I take this practice very seriously, because like you, I, too, seek out readings from others and expect nothing less than authenticity.
What are the "Recommendations" that you include in your readings?
Since I perform readings from the viewpoint of a spiritual advisor, I offer the client ways in which to ameliorate the conditions or situations affecting their lives. For example, in a reading where money problems are revealed, the client may have negative energies associated with his job that contribute to his inability to obtain a raise or promotion, even though these are warranted and well-deserved. Based upon the cards that fall in the reading, I can devise a remedy for this situation to help the client overcome the obstacles in his way, ultimately clearing his path toward abundance.
It is entirely up to the client whether or not they choose to follow through with these recommendations, which normally consist of prayers, candle settings and spiritual cleansings that they can perform themselves in the comfort of their own homes. I provide these detailed instructions as a courtesy for all reading clients. In the rare event that the person's situation calls for more serious and complex spiritual work, I will recommend they see a specialist who can assist them with their needs.
What if I can't or don't want to do the recommended work? Can I pay you to do it for me?
There are many reasons that support your doing your own prayers, your own spiritual cleansings and your own candle settings. However, it is understood that everyone's living situation is different and may not allow for such things as burning candles or incense, for example. As a courtesy, clients may request to be added to my daily prayers here at the Head & Hand. This service is always available and always complimentary with or without the purchase of a reading. Prayers done on your behalf should not be taken as a substitution to your own prayers or work; rather, they are spiritual boosts or nudges to help you along your path towards realization of of your goals.
As for other types of spiritual work, I am currently not accepting new clients.
Do you do readings over telephone or Skype?
All readings are done over the phone. At this time, I do not offer Skype readings.
Do you do email readings?
All readings done by Mama Rue are delivered over the phone. However, readings with Sister Coya are available via email.
How do I get a free reading?
Free mini-readings are available for Mama Rue's YouTube channel's subscribers. At this time there is no set schedule for the free mini-readings, so it would be advantageous to subscribe and also click on the notifications bell so that you can catch these live streams when they occur.
