Theresa Fernand uses tarot cards, charms, crystals, or what she calls “tools for intuitive information, confirmation, and additional validation.”
“I stream and download information,” said Fernando, 51. “Along with predictions, we also provide intuitive coaching and guidance.”
If all of this sounds more therapeutic than spiritual, it’s not far from the truth. It’s playing its role,” he said.
“Apart from making predictions, I help people and many couples see their lives and the possibilities before them,” she said.
Fernando, who lives in Boca Raton, Florida, is employed as a psychic reading at dozens of bridal showers, bachelorette parties, and a handful of weddings around the country, where guests ask her questions about family, finances, and more.
Her prices vary, but it’s common to charge around $350 per hour for cocktails at weddings and $750 for 3-4 hours for bachelorette parties with up to 12 attendees. In the edited interview below, she talks about her experience.
What is your reading goal?
Whether it’s a 5- or 10-minute read at your wedding, a 75-minute phone call or an in-person session, my goal is to make you feel inspired, motivated, and moved by what I share. I would like to provide confirmation, information and verification of their uncertainties.
Why do people hire you for weddings?
Couples want to give their guests highly experiential gifts. Reading brings connection, excitement, and laughter. We leave with something more important than chocolate and wine. You are leaving with a personalized experience.
What are the best cards to receive during a reading that could indicate marriage, love, and the future?
The sun indicates that someone is giving birth to a child. usually boys. A star that usually signifies a soulmate or that there is divine orchestration in finding a soulmate. He has four wands, which means celebration and marriage. The Ten of Pentacles means you or a couple have it all. Another favorite is the King and Queen facing me in an upright position. This could indicate a strong bond or a good match.
How do charm bags work?
I have a bag of about 50 charms for events such as weddings and bridal parties. This is a light way to make things interactive. People are instantly intrigued.
They can be as simple as a heart, a four-leaf clover, or a butterfly, signifying transformation. It indicates that may be manipulating you, that you are being played, or that you are the player.
Get someone to reach out and pull out any number of charms. Some take three, some take a fist. Then I read what was in their hands. The meaning of the amulet is different depending on whether it is standing or lying on its side. If the crowned frog is lying on someone’s palm, it usually means you’re heartbroken.
We also offer intuitive coaching for couples. Why do people come to you, not therapists?
A therapist can help you think about things or explain what’s going on. They traditionally listen. I don’t hear—I feel. I read from an emotional, intuitive and mental impression. If I tell you what you’re struggling with before you confide in me, you’ll have a basis for trusting the advice I give.
How does couples coaching work?
I do 90 minute sessions. 30 minute solo and 30 minute session per person. People want to clarify issues privately or ask questions about their partner without being heard. Over the past decade she has seen over 70 couples.
As a couple, they are going through this experience and validating it together, not one person taking home the story of what happened here. , is gaining evidence, which enhances their connection and communication.
My job is to give them new perspectives and help them make decisions as a couple.
what have you learned about people?
Most couples don’t communicate in an effective way. Most people don’t take my advice. They get caught up in their ego and negative talk.
Also, they don’t want to take risks, be vulnerable, or expose themselves. Even if it’s short-term, they’re not always interested in making their way to the next place. i can’t give it to them. I can give guidance and checkpoints along the way to their goals.
What year-end activities can you suggest to someone looking for love?
Focusing on something specific sets the intention. It may sound silly, but write a love letter as if you already knew the other person existed. Put pen to paper instead of using a computer. Then you can energetically leave your mark on the world. This creates vibration and magnetization in the universe.
Write how you want this relationship to feel, not what you want. People create vision boards, but they don’t focus on their emotions. Burn the letter afterwards to release trapped emotions and move the energy forward. If you are excited and attached to your writing, carry it around and put it under your pillow to sleep.
And for those concerned?
Ask couples, especially those who are struggling, to write down 20 things they love about the people they are with.
Many focus on what is wrong. The focus here is on the simple pleasures of good things. People toast to what they want in the new year. This forces them to see what is in front of them. Most couples share lists in order.
