Fraud. Scammer. Fake. Phony. These are some of the terms I hear attached to Miss Cleo's name and it makes me sick as a Tarot Reader, Intuitive, and as a Black Woman. Her face and voice helped me make sense of myself. I remember always wanting to call her to ask her if what I was experiencing meant I was a psychic too.
I heard a podcast where, this well known, old school Tarot Pro said no one could possibly get all that information from the cards, in reference to Miss Cleo.
She was working for a company, not for herself, but it seems that the blame fell on her. It's funny because I had an interview with a tarot reading service and they were expecting me to be a psychic, like Miss Cleo – but that's not how I use the Tarot.
Before I begin, I Do Not Care if she was a ‘fake' or not. Yes, I've heard about the investigations and still Do Not Care. She transitioned in 2016, and the only thing I ever hear about her is that she was a fake.
That's so disrespectful to me, because of what she represented.
Seeing her ‘Call Me Now' commercials lit me up inside and made me feel
I never shared the things I heard or saw, but I remember them vividly to this day.
I am thankful for Miss Cleo because she helped to keep a door open within me. I remember being fascinated by ghost stories, tarot, spells, and all of that, but I couldn't explore it outside of library books.
When I found out that Miss Cleo had a Tarot deck I had to get it. I don't use it, it's a collector deck for me and reminds me of the little girl who was so confused. If Miss Cleo was a scammer, she still served a purpose, by helping me explore my gifts.
Maybe one day I will do more research to unearth my own truth about Miss Cleo, but for now
My wish is that people put Respect on Her Namesake. Her name is
Youree Dell Harris. She was a Mystic, a Mother, and a Woman, just like me. You can't call her, but you can definitely call me now for an accurate, professional, heart-centered Spiritual Love Tarot Reading.
