Recently team Townmumbai.com had interviewed Famous Tarot card reader, Numerologist and Astrologer – Mrs. Nupur Shriiram on occasion of her website’s launch,
She has been practicing this science since last 6 years. Tarot card reading became her profession when she was completely clueless and lost. She then decided to consult a tarot card reader and seeing the accuracy of the reading she decided to learn tarot card reading herself. Along with tarot card reading she is well versed with Astrology and Numerology. Here’s how she gets it all done. This interview has turned as eye opener of this field.
1.What inspired you to get into this profession?
Getting into Tarot Reading was just by chance. There was a point in my life, where I found myself clueless and lost, so decided to take help from a Tarot card Reader. I wanted direction in my life. I was very surprised by the accuracy of the reading hence, decided to learn the art of Tarot reading for myself. And then there was no looking back. Positive feedback from my family and friends, for whom I read, inspired me to take Tarot Card reading as a profession. I am a successful Tarot Card Reader, since last 6 years.
What is your USP?
My USP is my integrated style of reading. Which means along with Tarot, I combine Numerology and Astrology for in depth analysis and remedies. It’s a complete package in one consultation. Over the years I have realized that Tarot and related sciences are great tools to shape your life and design your destiny. But unfortunately,it has been used mostly for predictions which I never do in my readings.
Instead my main focus is always on making the client more powerful and build his or her own strength.
How someone can start the same business as yours in terms of investments, knowledge, marketing etc?
Getting into a profession of Occult Sciences demands great amounts of responsibility and patience, because people will trust you and take your guidance whenever they feel stuck. So if you have the zeal to help others with honesty and have an inquisitive mind it’s the good profession to be in. Secondly, Tarot can only be mastered by practice. The more you practice the more you read and keep yourself updated the better your readings will be.You can visit my website to know the course fees and details. Along with Tarot it’s always advisable to learn a healing or remedial modality like Reiki, gemstones, or any therapy as per your interest. Yes marketing is very vital to promote yourself and establish your work. Always remember that our clients are the first and best way to market yourself. Your good work will spread with word of mouth.
Any challenge you are facing in your profession and how you overcome that?
The only challenge which I face is that, still a lot of people consider Tarot Card Reading as a fun game. They think it’s not serious and some also think that we invoke spirits and do magical work. Let me clarify here that Tarot Card Reading was used for divination and was brought to Europe by the gypsies in the 14th century. The cards were hand painted and a village head or seer was allowed to read them for the community. Slowly it came to Europe and the oldest deck of cards belonged to the Duke of Milan. They got burnt in the fire at the palace. From what remained new set of cards were designed by mystic A.E Waite with an artist Pamela Coleman Smith known as the Rider Waite deck. This deck is now used across the world by all Tarot Card Readers. Tarot Card is a powerful medium to bring clarity in your life. So if you have never got your cards read, you should definitely book an appointment for a reading with me. I assure you an enlightened reading experience.
What are your plans for future?
I plan to promote Tarot Card Reading, Numerology and Astrology as an unconventional career option. Today we don’t look at them as career option,because we feel that only special people can read it. But, under a right mentor , anyone can get into this profession. I am passionate about teaching, so I want to teach Tarot as much as I can and share my knowledge with everyone so that people can handle their lives in a better way.
How you manage your personal and professional life?
It’s all about knowing your priorities and is the best way to bring work life balance. I work from home because my family is my priority at this time. Working from home gives me the ease of being with my son whenever he needs. Right now he is my priority because he is just 10 years. I am handling both my professional and personal life with great ease. I have a very supportive family too.
Any books you would like to recommend?
Yes. I would highly recommend the below mentioned books for any Tarot card enthusiast,
-The Complete Book of Tarot Reversals by Mary K Greer.
– Secrets of the Waite Smith Tarot by Marcus Katz and Tali Goodwin.
-Tarot Spreads and Layout by Barbara Moore
-Holistic Tarot by Benebell Wen
Anything you want to mention here?
Yes I would like to say that “Future is very fluidic and is not etched on a stone. We can always change the course with the choices we make in our lives”. It’s all about how we live in the present. Past and future does not exist because one is over and the other is yet to come. Tarot Cards are easy way to get our answers whenever we feel lost. Trust them and let them guide you.
What advice would you give to readers who want to follow a similar career path as you?
Be honest with yourself and with your client. Empower yourself with good knowledge. Read and practice as much as possible. Develop good listening skills. Be very passionate and dedicated to your skills.
