Talkin’ Tarot With is a monthly feature designed to introduce my readers to different tarot readers from our wonderfully diverse community!  Each month, I’ll be asking various tarot readers three questions about their tarot philosophy and style, plus pointing you to their websites and blogs so that you can learn more about them!  I like to hand pick tarot readers that I feel are talented and interesting.

Talkin' Tarot with George Koury

My dear friend, George Koury, has been a fixture on the mediumship scene for some time. He’s now making waves in the tarot community and will be a mainstage presenter at the annual Readers Studio conference. I’m excited to learn from him – and judging by the sold-out status, I’m not the only one!

George is known for his compassion, intuitive skills, and sense of humor. A former clown, he knows how to lighten things up. In fact, you can’t put it past him to pull out a toy monkey even when teaching serious subjects!

I’ve had tarot readings with him before and have always walked away feeling informed – and inspired. He has a gift for helping people to heal from loss so they can move forward towards abundant, happy, healthy lives.

If you’re looking to connect with the dearly departed or need some tarot wisdom with a side of comedy, get to know George. You’ll quickly see why he’s a tarot treasure.


George is an International Psychic Medium and Angel Messenger. He had a powerful mystical experience at five years of age with a visitation from an Angel. From that first, moment George had an unfolding of psychic and mediumistic abilities. His first tutor was his maternal Grandmother, a gifted Medium.

George began his work life as a professional clown with Ringling Brother’s Circus. He was also an instructor at their Clown College. George worked for two decades as a clown. He realized the importance of laughter and a sense of humor on the spiritual path.

He conducts Mediumship demonstrations across the US and in England. He is a frequent guest instructor and Medium at Lily Dale, NY. He writes extensively on spiritual topics and is a contributor to such publications as the British magazine, “3rd I”.

George is also a respected Tarot expert. He has co-taught Tarot with luminaries Rachel Pollack and Mary Greer at Omega Institute in New York. He’s also been a featured instructor at the international Tarot convention, The Reader’s Studio in Manhattan. George teaches group classes in working with Angels and Tarot reading worldwide.

George conducts private and group readings and classes and makes regular appearances on radio and television. He is respected for his ability to communicate with departed loved ones and Angels with accuracy, compassion and a great sense of humor.

“I am dedicated to serving Spirit and all living beings.”

Check out George’s answers to my questions below:


Q: What is your philosophy about tarot reading?

George: I believe that when we are reading the Tarot for someone, the answers are coming from the soul of the sitter.

Q: How do you feel a client might get the most out of a reading with you?

George: I ask all this seeking a session with me to come with an open mind and heart. I also ask them to let go expectations as to how and what a reading should look like.

Q: What is your best piece of advice for an aspiring Tarot reader?

George: Once you have the basics down and can do a competent reading, practice, practice and more practice.

If you want to be a truly great reading, start out by offering 200 readings for free. Keep a journal of all your sessions. Without self-blame, assess what you did well and what can use improvement. Love your sitters and always have your intention focused clearly on helping and uplifting them.


Big appreciation for George, who made time out of his super-busy schedule to answer my questions. Get to know more about him right here.
