I love me some Periscope!
It's social media platform for not just showing but TEACHING what you know. It gives the content creator access to an audience in real-time. As a tarot reader I'm able to give readings, answer questions and just talk to my audience...thereby creating an actual human experience as I show others what I do.
To stay connected with my Astrology and Tarot posts on Periscope follow my updates on Twitter, my handle is: Nick_D.
I love how Periscope is in its early stages so it's still a no frills production platform with a community of people looking to connect, experience and be entertained by what others are doing. It's not ruined by professionals or mega corporations (just yet).
It allows me to be spontaneous with what I do in terms of Astrology and Tarot and have an instant interactive audience...thereby allowing me to improve my craft. Just like today (9/13/15) I decided to experiment with how I could read for others by recording a live Tarot Reading based on people's sun signs. It worked great and it was a lot of fun. Even more importantly I was able to be of service to others.
Periscope works by allowing me to post real time video of what I'm doing. With its social media platform, that's tied to Twitter, it allows users to see what broadcasts are live as they're logged on to the App. Once the audience member starts watching they can post comments and the interaction begins. The video is stored for 24 hours so your followers or anyone looking at your profile can view it later but only for a limited time, which gives it that SnapChat feel. Make sure you follow me on SnapChat at NDEWART.
I'm really looking forward to what the future has to offer in terms of social media and how it allows me as a Tarot Reader and Astrologer be of service to an audience.

We all need external validation that's never going to go away. Nobody here is or should pretend to be an enlightened human being who doesn't care about worldly things. We do. That said, relationships are hard. As I started taking clients here in Los Angeles it was the NO. 1 issue everyone wanted to address. Hands down it's not even close, relationships are on everyone's mind. Are you destined to be alone? The cards can be used to tell you your fate BUT why not use them to problem solve? Why not use them to understand your plight a little more and figure out ways be in a healthy relationship to what is? It's OK to get frustrated about relationships. I won't judge you for asking questions like these. I understand this frustration. I'm here to listen and use divination to help you maneuver through the darkness. BUT before you tempt fate in a consultation by asking "Will I ever get married?" why not use Astrology and/or Tarot to gain some context about what's going on? That way you can gain clarity and take actions that will lead you the best outcomes possible through your doings and not through your worryings. Ultimately the choice is yours on how you want to consult the oracle. I'll be here as a heart centered mediator to objectively advise you on what I see given your questions and your needs. And I'd be happy to have you :)
Tarot provides insights. As divination, tarot comprises a symbolic language.
It’s like a spoken language in that it can provide psychic information to the querent (yes even verbal language is psychic in nature.) Unlike spoken language, tarot is divinatory and meant to be used as a tool to move beyond linear comprehension.
I approach tarot with enthusiasm and creativity. What I love about this card game is unlike language I get to make up my rules as I go along. I’m amazed at the insights I’m able to get by working with its symbols as expressed through my chosen structures.
In fact, everyone’s relationship to divination is as unique as everyone’s relationship to spirituality. In your hands the cards are yours to convene and commune with source as YOU WILL.
We can read card meanings and use standardized spreads until we are blue in the face BUT we won’t get to the juicy part of all of this until we connect to our intuition through the cards.
Tarot is not a standardized language like English, it’s YOUR unique language for communion with the divine.
You can use the “wrong” card meaning or misapply a tarot spread yet still be offered accurate and loving information.
Because the universe is benevolent, source has your best interests in mind. The universe doesn’t respond to an absolute man-made structure. The universe resonates with structure. WE can see that language itself is a living phenomenon. Language changes as time changes.
The universe is open to your communication, your divination at your level of abstract understanding. NO more, no less. What’s required is an open heart.
It’s like the famous quote:
“The most important decision we make is whether we believe we live in a friendly or hostile universe.” - Albert Einstein
With tarot and with all divination you’re free to play with the friendly cosmic telephone. Loving operators are standing by.
That's why I love tarot.
