About Sofia

Specialises in: Intuitive Tarot with astrology

Hello and thank you for taking the time to view my profile, I'm Sofia. I never set out to be a Tarot Reader. Since 2014 I've been a Yoga Teacher, Reiki Master and Cacao Ceremonialist, working closely with lunar, astrological and archetypal energies. An avid oracle and angel card fan I’d always been a bit wary of Tarot, but in 2016 I bought my first deck in a cool, eclectic boutique in Reyjkavik when I was on a city break. I had no idea what any of the cards meant but was completely drawn in by the occult symbolism and powerful imagery and through daily study, contemplation and journalling the cards quickly came to life, their mysteries slowly revealing themselves. I began incorporating them in my Yoga classes, Moon Circles and healing sessions and loved sharing my insights with my clients who were always fascinated by their accuracy. During a particularly challenging period I turned deeply to Tarot for answers, guidance and reassurance. It was a fascinating glimpse into my psyche, with all the outdated patterns, protection mechanisms, limiting beliefs and deeply buried insecurities. It was quite something, to see myself laid bare like and although it didn’t feel like it at the time, I understand now what a gift it is to be able to see yourself without the filters of anxiety, trauma, fear and projection. Being bullied by my Tarot cards was one of the best things that’s happened to me! I’ve made sweeping changes across all areas of my life and let go of a lot of stuff that was weighing me down. I’m learning to interrupt the loop of negative thoughts and reframe my inner dialogue so I can be kinder to myself and make choices that support my happiness and inner peace. But the greatest gift my cards have given me is the ability to see myself with clarity, compassion and forgiveness. So here I am, armed with nothing but my trusty cards and 30 years of adult life experience ready and waiting to help you navigate change, find clarity and make lasting, significant changes to your life. I’m ready when you are!

What do you like most about giving readings to clients?

Tarot is a powerful tool for guidance, personal growth and change. It can help you get unstuck, gain clarity and perspective and answer questions on the matters closest to our hearts - love, career and life path. What's so interesting to me is that we already know the answers, we already know what the underlying issues are and we already know how to move around obstacles and navigate those moments when we feel stuck. We just need a tool, Tarot in this instance, to help us remember. It's a wonderful feeling when my clients realise that they knew all along what to do, say or change. That's when I know I've done my job properly.

How would you say you are typical of your star sign?

Absolutely! I asked my Tarot cards to describe my Gemini characteristics, but in true Gemini fashion some of the traits from other persona, namely my Sagittarius rising, have crept in! 7 of Cups - indecisive and easily distracted, with an abundance of ideas, dreams and fantasies that more often than not never manifest in reality! Page of Cups - sensitive, emotional, curious, youthful, intuitive but prone to being ungrounded, overly sensitive and immature when under attack. King of Wands - visionary, creative, passionate, optimistic and expansive but sometimes a tad controlling! My challenge cards are... 6 of Wands - learn to celebrate my successes, put myself out there more and assume a position of confident, self-assured leadership amongst my community. 8 of Pentacles - focus, refine my skills in one or two areas and see things through rather than always getting bored and moving onto the next thing! In your reading I'll ask you for your Sun/Star sign, it's a great way to get some added depth and context in the reading and helps me help you in a way that's directly relatable, accessible and actionable.

When do you remember being first aware of your gift?

Unlike some other psychic readers my gifts have been revealed to me slowly but surely as I've got older. I had a profound past-life connection with Rome and Pompeii on a holiday to Italy during my early 20's and was told by several mediums at the time that I had 'the gift' but didn't fully connect with it for another 20 years. My first real sense of receiving information psychically and from Spirit came when I was working as a Reiki healer in 2015. I'd hear, see, feel or just know what was going on for my client without them having to tell me. Tarot has heightened my intuition and taught me to trust the information I receive without second guessing myself or questioning where it came from. It's also deepened my trust in myself in other areas of my life which is a wonderful bonus! Nowadays I work mainly with claircognizance (knowing) receiving information psychically and I sense Spirit as colours or an energetic presence. My familiar is a little black cat, just like the one on the RSW Tarot card Queen of Wands (my favourite card in the deck!), is always close by/

What is your most memorable experience with a client?

At a recent psychic event I read for a woman I'd never met before who had questions about her relationship. The cards suggested that despite the current problems the fundamental desire for both parties was love, unity and a deep intimate connection. After digging into the blocks and how to work through them she left feeling reassured, optimistic for the future and relieved that it was possible to salvage, heal and strengthen her marriage. An hour or so later a gentleman came along, also unknown to me, also looking for a love reading. As the spread began to develop I intuitively realised that this man was the husband of the woman I had read for earlier as the current situation, blocks and guidance for healing and moving forward were the same. Many of the cards were identical and those that weren't pointed to the same situations and outcomes but from a slightly different perspective. It was an affirming, uplifting and heartwarming experience to know that these two beautiful souls who had somehow become disconnected were being shown the same way forward through the magic of Tarot. I wish them all the very best for the future and feel confident they'll be reconfirming their marriage vows very soon!

What other experiences or qualifications do you have that you feel compliment your work as a reader?

Since 2014 I've worked extensively with the subtle body in my years as Yoga Teacher, Well Woman Yoga Therapist and Reiki Master. I understand the energetic and vibrational nature of humans and the world we live in and how lower energies like fear, anxiety, worry, anger and sadness deplete our soul and spirit, blocking us from seeing ourselves and the situations in our lives as we, and they, truly are. We wear our traumas, challenges, pain and suffering like a cloak that dims our light and stifles our connection to our essence, which is peaceful, blissful and free. By working with Tarot we can learn to safely shed the layers of protection and armour to reveal our true, radiant selves. I've loved astrology since I was a child, eagerly waiting for my Mum's Cosmopolitan magazine to be delivered every month so I could read my horoscope and feeling proud of my Gemini status! Little did I know that this was just the tip of the iceberg of what astrology has to teach us! My connection to astrology has deepened significantly over the last few years and I started formally studying it last year. I've learned that we're born with a blueprint, our very own creation myth if you will, that imprints on us certain traits, behaviours and patterns. They often operate in the background, like a computer programme or app that we're not aware of. By shining the light of awareness on it, through modalities likeTarot, mindfulness or even therapy, and analysing the fundamentals of our natal chart, or even by simply understanding our basic Sun/Star sign archetype we can overwrite the programme in order to navigate the challenges and optimise the blessings contained within our individual horoscopes. I incorporate elements of astrology in all my readings to help you understand yourself on the deepest level possible in the time we have together. I'm 52 years old with 30 years of adult life experience under my belt. In the last 7 years alone I've dealt being a carer to a dying parent, divorce, mental and physical health struggles, financial worries, empty nest syndrome, loss of identity, radical career change, heartbreak, loss, finding new love AND lockdown, all of which have gifted me a wealth of knowledge and wisdom that I'd love to share with you.

What is the most important thing for a person to consider when they decide to have a psychic reading?

The most crucial thing when deciding to have a reading is to pick someone you feel drawn to, not just someone who's available right now, or someone who's been recommended to you. Reading Tarot isn't just about me telling you what the cards mean and hoping it fits with your current situation, it's about developing a relationship based on trust, openness and a genuine connection. The best readings are the ones where the querent (you) feels safe and confident to enter into an honest and curious dialogue with the reader (me) with the shared intention of gleaning the most accurate, insightful and helpful reading possible in the time we share. At the end of your reading you should be able understand yourself, the themes and issues your life and your current situation from a place of acceptance, clarity and compassion. You should leave feeling that your questions have been answered and you know what to do, or not do, next. Tarot cards have complex and multi-layered meanings, and while I can intuitively interpret them in a way that's directly related to you and your circumstances, your input is required in order to get the best results so the cards and I can direct you to your highest and greatest good. So by choosing a reader that you feel genuinely drawn to and who's bio and ethos resonates with your philosophy and outlook on life, the better chance you have of getting a truly memorable, life-changing reading.
