Pundit Pet has a unique way of interpreting Tarot cards. His readings strive to help people understand what might be happening in their lives. So many people don’t have access to therapy, so Pete uses the images of the cards to bring up something that would trigger relevance in your life that might need acting upon. Pete shows us that there is always more than one truth to every situation. Alternative viewpoints can help us understand what is really happening.
Pundit Pete uses these online cards as his tools of introspection. The magic of Pundit Pete’s reading shows how the cards give you the confidence to unlock and confront feelings that you otherwise wouldn’t and prepares you for realizing there are different ways of solving problems. It is good to consider that things might not be exactly what you associate them with and there are other ways of understanding why things happen the way they do.
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.

Choosing to live in the past or the future not only robs you of enjoyment today, but it also robs you of truly living. The only important moment is the present moment. Trust your Angel!
