She isn’t only a psychic astrologer – she has been a friend, a confidante, a guide and a spiritual resource for thousands of people. In this interview, top psychic advisor Totem Aion opens up about her intuitive powers, her experience and views on life.
I've started cultivating my gift since a very young age, but I had no conscious awareness of it. I had a difficult childhood and given the circumstances, as a small girl, I ended up being quite suspicious of other people’s intentions. I knew that appearances were not to be trusted, but at the same time I did feel I needed something to trust, something to rely on. I believe that that was the reason I unconsciously started developing an ability that allowed me to perceive deeper issues in situations and hidden motives in others, without having to communicate with them through speech. It felt as if I was trying to interpret silence rather than words. I didn’t know then that what I was actually doing was honing my intuition. In the end, I became quite good not only at reading between the lines, but also at feeling what others felt.
Which trainings have you pursued to further yourself as a psychic/astrologer?
As I grew older, I examined and experimented with various methods of accessing the subconscious. I’ve studied hypnosis, numerology, animal spirits, astrology, runes, I Ching. But it was Tarot that won my heart. I’m very passionate about symbology and Tarot is literally brimming with symbols. Colors, objects, numbers - every element in a Tarot card is an archetypal symbol that offers fascinating and intriguing information and insight.
Later, I started using a more advanced method of reading Tarot, known as "elemental dignities". It's about attributing the four elements (fire, water, air and earth) to the cards and examining how these elements interact with each other, along with each card's meaning. That takes the reading one step further, as the enriched insights one could get are often crucial at determining the accuracy of the outcome.
