Exploring How We Create Meaning with Tarot

Donnaleigh's Code of Ethics readings.divinewhispers@gmail.com


My Code of Ethics

Tarot readings are a powerful mode of self-learning that help us connect with our higher self for understanding.

  • I will be clear about what tarot can and cannot do for you.
  • I will honestly represent my Tarot qualifications, including educational credentials and levels of certification.
  • I will respond to all questions to the best of my`ability with as much detail and honest information as I can responsibly provide.
  • There will be no hidden charges attached to my readings. All clients will  have information about the cost and length of a reading prior to beginning.
  • I will not answer questions that I do not believe I am capable of answering.  



  •  I will not divulge a reading to another without express permission from the client. All readings will be held in the strictest confidence unless there is a threat of danger where the client may harm his/herself or as required by a court of law.



  • It is with great honor and respect that I welcome people from all spiritual paths, ethnic heritages and cultures, regardless of sexual preference or personal background. I come from a place of non-judgment, compassion, and sensitivity during every reading.
  • I will serve the best interests of my clients, conducting my professional activities without causing harm or intending to cause harm.
  • I will never place upon my clients my religious views nor push upon you any religious belief system. Your religious perspective will be held in the utmost respect, and any readings will reflect my clients' personal  religious preference if requested.
  • I respect my clients' right to refuse or terminate a reading at any time, regardless of prior consent.
  • I always give my full attention to my clients in order that I can fully understand and appreciate your questions.
  • I recognize that all ATA (American Tarot Association) members have the same rights and obligations, and I will always respect and honor my co-members. 



  • I will work with you to formulate a question that does not give your power away, and I will strive to help my clients leave a reading feeling empowered to make practical, life-affirming decisions.  While the cards may encourage a client to explore difficult issues, I believe a reading should never leave a client feeling scared or powerless. My goal is for you to leave feeling enlightened and enabled. 
  • My focus is not so much to predict, but rather to empower the client with guidance and to determine potential actions which will serve as transformational, positive solutions.
  • I believe that tarot allows us to recognize and change unseen patterns in our lives in order to achieve better outcomes. I believe Free Will overrides fate and that we are in control of our future with the daily decisions we make. I recommend every person act according to his/her own conscience for the greater good of all concerned. You alone are responsible for your own behavior. Any decisions you make, or actions you take as a result of your readings are entirely your own responsibility.


  • I am not a doctor, lawyer, accountant, or mental health provider. I will not give any professional advice related to these fields or any other field in which I am not qualified, and I will make referrals to such professionals should this become necessary during a reading.
  • Readings cannot be provided for those under the age of 18 unless accompanied by or requested by a parent.
  • I will not attempt to predict winning lottery numbers or interpret any reading to represent death or illness.
  • I reserve the right to refuse any reading not adhering to my code of ethics. 



  • I will continue to advance my own professional development to aid me in providing better readings.
