Testimonials

See the comments below for testimonials about my books, deck, this blog, and my Tarot readings.
(Note that the newest ones are at the end of the list.)

Here are a few excerpts from the testimonials posted below which are about my readings:

  • I was guided towards James because of his emphasis on using Tarot as a positive empowering tool.
  • [He is] gentle and approachable in responding to his readers’ concerns and doubts.
  • When I get into a bind he’s the best reader to go to for constructive and uplifting input. Not only a tarot expert but an expert counselor.
  • I re-read the reading James gave me 2 years ago and it makes so much sense! At the time I don’t think I was able to grasp it a 100% as I was in the midst of it. Two years later I’m in a different place and I can really absorb what he said then.
  • I recently had an email reading with James and am very pleased with his accuracy, insight, and perspective.
  • His reading gave me comfort and most of all hope. I now look at the situation a whole lot differently. I know how to go about this problem to best suit all involved with love and compassion.
  • This is the strongest reading I have ever had!
  • He provided me with some important tools to work on things.
  • James … is accurate and detailed and insightful. And caring, which is priceless.

  1. I’m a big fan of James Ricklef’s tarot deck Tarot of the Masters, and I appreciate the fact that the care and knowledge he put into the deck is also evident in his blog entries. The posts are informative, entertaining, and enriching.

  2. James’ insight to the tarot is one that I’ve always respected and heeded. He’s taught me so much more depth in what the tarot has to offer. The blog is a wonderful source of information on the varying topics related to tarot, but more importantly, have excellent examples of real-life applications. As a tarot reader deepening my experience and practical knowledge of the tarot, I am able to gleen from James’ years of experience.

    James, I have to tell you, I rarely read blog posts on a regular basis. Even the few fashion ones I subscribe to, I just look at the pictures! But your blog is so well written and so topical on a regular basis, I’m completely hooked. You’re really doing an outstanding job!

  4. James is the ultimate tarot professional and I love all of his work from the first books and KnightHawk readings through his wonderful Tarot of the Masters Deck. The only thing better than only all of these and having met James in person is the opportunity to stay in touch through his blog! The insights that James shares are fun, provocative and educational and offer practical means to expand your knowledge and practice of tarot. Thanks James for continuing to expand your own tarot skills and practice while being willing to take us on that journey with you!

  5. Hi James,
    I love to visit your site and read your interesting insights into Tarot and how it relates to our daily lives. Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge and experience. Keep up the good work. 🙂

    James has written books that in my opinion, are ‘must have’s for any tarot collection. His style is approachable, down to earth and also practical. I was so pleased when he then added his own tarot deck. With regards the blog I find it so enlightening to see a blog that really allows us to feel part of his musings in a way often lacking with regular blogs. It is not just a case of James saying what is on his mind, but inviting us to take part in subsequent discussions. Not only is this refreshing it also allows us (as the visitor) to learn so much on how to get the best out of our own readings. I highly recommend any publication by James and would also recommend his blog is visited on a regular basis. It will be enlightening and helps remind us how special and approachable a person he really is.

    Thanks for an outstanding blog, James. I’ve used your ideas in own readings and during Tarot classes that I’ve taught. The results are always good and thought provoking. I don’t have time for all the blogs in cyberspace but yours is one that I always look forward to — it generally hits home.

  8. I was guided towards James because of his emphasis on using Tarot as a positive empowering tool. I am fortunate to have 3 of his excellent books (Tarot Tells the Tale, Tarot: Get the Whole Story and Tarot Affirmations) and now also the ability to follow his ideas and developments and interact directly with him and others via this blog. James, thank you for being so accessible and generously sharing your pearls of wisdom with us!

  9. James’ blog is a great place for the beginner to expand skills, or the very experienced to brush up on their work with Tarot. His thoughts are well written and easily understood. I don’t read blogs unless they are on a subject I am interested and expand my knowledge in some way. I READ James’ blog. Thanks for sharing with all of us, James.

    Having just ‘surfed’ my way into James Ricklef’s Tarot Blog, his discernment on Tarot issues have been enormously edifying; his energy and enthusiam apparent and engaging.

    James Ricklef’s Blog delivers a store of clear, thought-inspiring articles and his sincere style of written counsel, filled with intrinsic truth and excellent advice, is one that touches and invites participation from all levels of beginner’s, intermediates and Pros alike.

    I have taken many classes from James and have learned a lot. My copy of his book Tarot Tells The Tale, is so dog-eared and used that Im going to have to buy another. With him Tarot is an art an he is truly a Master at it.

    James Ricklif is a reference in the world of Tarot, not only because of his vast knowledge, but also for its ethics and down to earth. Even for me that I am not from an English speaking country, it is easily understandable, without being superficial.All this is reflected in his amazing work on this blog, where everyone is listened to, with equal attention and creativity is encouraged, without beeing dull.

  14. James,
    Thanks, your tarot blog is great! The frequent posts on various subjects really hits the spot.
    Your creative use of tarot has opened my mind, and my heart….
    Your continued dedication to the exploration of tarot, underscores your position of professional in the expanding tarot world.
    Keep up the good work!!!

    I check this blog almost everyday – I like the way James can say a lot in just a few paragraphs. It’s one of the few blogs I check almost daily, and that certainly means something. Thanks, James, you’ve been doing a really nice job!

  16. James is not just the author of great tarot books – he is also a great tarot reader and a gifted teacher as well. I have learnt a lot from his writings, and been inspired by his method and his ethic code. He is also gentle and approachable, always responding to his readers’ concerns and doubts. It is a pleasure to be able to follow his work and his thoughts everyday through this blog!

    Thank you James, for sharing your knowledge with us and being always so attentive to us!

  20. I fell in love with James’ style of reading through his books and felt very honoured when he befriended me on Facebook. Having access to his blog is a great source of learning for both professionals like me and beginners. Thanks James!!

    I have had a couple of readings from James now and I know when I get into a bind he’s the best reader to go to for constructive and uplifting input. Not only a tarot expert but an expert counselor.

    I re-read the reading you gave me 2 years ago and it makes so much sense! At the time I don’t think I was able to grasp it a 100% as I was in the midst of it. Two years later I’m in a different place and I can really absorb what you said then. 🙂

    I recently had an email reading with James and am very please with his accuracy, insight, and perspective. I have also ordered his books and cards. I expect to learn more as I study his works.

  24. I had a reading with James, Not only did he hit the problem right on, but he also gave me ref., to books to read to help me out and give me something to do to help me with the problem. His reading gave me comfort and most of all hope. I now look at the situation a whole lot differently. I know how to go about this problem to best suit all involved with love and compassion. I can only thank James with thank you from my heart, thank you so much for hope.

    I recently wrote a comment regarding the accurate and insightful reading I had with James. Since then I have received his Tarot of the Masters cards. They “speak” to me more than any other deck, and I have quite a few in my collection. I also now have his “Tarot and Your Spiritual Path” book, which I am enjoying immensely. My spiritual beliefs are in line with James’ and his writing about each card provides a dimension that is way beyond other writers about the tarot. Thoroughly enjoying my experience. I have ordered his other books as well.

    This is the strongest reading I have ever had!

  27. James,
    I love your new deck and Spiritual takes on the cards. I feel that in the last year or so, my readings have become a lot better, and different than they used to be. I use the Celtic Cross a lot to get a feel for what the person is going through, but then it seems like all the dots connect in a different way and the cards tell me other things. I am reading out of a new business now, more spiritually in tune, and meditate there too, so that may also be helping. I finally realized that even though we start with the books, it’s your intuition and heart you must listen to.

  28. Italian Lady permalink

    Great reading! I’m amazed! James mentioned some specific details of my life that I hadn’t shared with anyone so far… And I’m talking about things that tarots handbook don’t normally teach you… He provided me with some important tools to work on things. What more can I say? James has knowledge, empathy and intuition. Borrowing from literature, I’ll say “Sense and sensibility”!
    He is accurate and detailed and insightful. And caring. Which is priceless. Thank you, James!
