Tarot readings tell stories — stories that might not always have a logical sense but have instead an intuitive meaning. The story is guided by a feeling, or perhaps the mood a color suggests to the receiver, or strange coincidences in the pictures. This is a creative act. A reading by Pundit Pete helps one to reach into themselves for the answers. There’s something dreamy, archetypal, and intense to Pete’s Tarot Reading as it can touch a part of ourselves we don’t care to admit exists.
Pundit Pete gives you a reading that is about you. It is whatever you need it to be. And sometimes that means it’s the tough-love truth you have been unwilling to face.
