Oracle Readings /Navigational consultations with Jim Ventura
What is an Oracle?
Oracles are powerful tools which represent different culture’s perspectives on all aspects of life in our world. Oracles offer us an opportunity to get glimpses, insights, images, and ideas which will tell us about the dynamics, the “seeds,” that lie behind events and experiences in our past, present, and future. Oracles do not absolve you of the responsibility for selecting your future, but rather direct your attention toward those inner choices that may be the most important elements in determining the future.
Astrology, Numerology, Tarot and other Oracles allow you to see yourself in a new light and to grow in consciousness.
My Unique style of working with clients:
I am quite good at getting images and glimpses of what is probable (likely to occur) in your near and sometimes distant future. This ability is often helped tremendously when I use Tarot and other oracles in sessions. My primary goal when I work with clients is to help them see what areas are working, and what may need to be adjusted to move to a place of happiness and more success in life. I will give excellent suggestions and guidance to help you to do this during sessions. The spreads I do with many different types of oracles will help give you insight into your life at multiple levels. I have worked with many people and thousands of spreads over the years so my ability to guide, give insight, and help you to make a stronger connection to your Higher Self is fine-tuned.
All of the session:
* are in a comfortable, relaxed environment
* are private and confidential
* provide practical information
* Include a recording of the session
* Sessions can also be done by phone for out of area clients.
Phone sessions are also recorded and mailed to you after the session.
NUMEROLOGY and TAROT READING
My most requested session is the Numerology profile and Tarot spread, which explores the blueprint for your life. Numerology explains your: destiny numbers, heart’s desire, personality, life path, karmic lessons, challenges, and personal years. Numerology will help you to understand your unique life pattern. The second part of the session will be a Tarot spread, to illuminate the themes of the coming months or year ahead. The Tarot is one of the most specific and accurate oracle tools for observing current issues and where your life is headed. Tarot offers powerful insight and direction in overcoming challenges and obstacles that may be in your path. Either a 45 minute, 70 or 90 minute session will work well for this session, although more information about both will be available in the longer sessions.
My second most requested session is the Astrological reading, which interprets your personal astrology and aids in self awareness. By looking beyond your Sun sign (the stuff the newspapers focus on) and exploring your Moon sign, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Ascendant, etc... you can begin to gain clarity about the focus; and primary themes, of your life. House placements, aspects, and elements will help you see your patterns in greater detail. Transits will show what areas of your life are currently highlighted, and pinpoint upcoming astrological triggers for the future. Relationships, career, money, friendships, spiritual growth, family, health... all interpreted for you so you don't have to do the work. You will need to know your birth time for this reading. I use Western Astrology with Placidus house placements. Vedic astrology is very useful but I personally don't use that method.
Either a 45 minute or 70 minute session will work well for this session, although more information about both will be available in the longer sessions.
DRUID ANIMAL ORACLE
From Snake Oil 87/Seeing Owl’s
“...I left the fun and noise of the casino for a bit to go relax in my room. I decided to sit on the back patio of my room and enjoy a calming look at the undeveloped land behind the casino. I immediately noticed there was a baby owl about 15 feet away from me. He seemed to be watching me with equal fascination. I felt blessed to see something that was so unusual. A few minutes later, two more owls landed about 8 feet from the other owl. I lit up a cigar and enjoyed hanging out with the owls for a bit. This experience was a great reminder that sometimes life can be magical if we simply allow it to be. This was definitely one of those times.
When we are open to seeing the animals that cross our path from another perspective we can benefit from the spiritual messages they share with us. I already knew what the message of seeing owls was from my studies of Druid teachings. Owl represents wisdom, detachment, and change. The Owl is the totem bird of clairvoyance and astral travel. The veil which surrounds the normal boundaries of space and time can be pierced if you allow the energy of Owl as ally. Owl is a sacred symbol of the Crone aspect and the Goddess of Death...”
One of the most important elements in understanding the Owl totem is the owls connection to turning a disadvantage into an advantage. Because of Owls exceptional hearing it is able to hunt at night and catch unsuspecting prey. Owl also reminds us of the wisdom of healthy detachment...”
DRUID ANIMAL ORACLE READING
The practice and ancient Druidic teachings of animal totems and animal power is being revived. Every aspect of the natural world is alive and capable of being our allies, guides, and teachers. In Druid culture, wearing animal skins, heads, and feathers was a way of identifying with certain Animals and becoming them for a while in order to partake in their powers and to receive divine inspiration. This session will show what power animals are now available to you, and how they may already be influencing you. This spread is a perfect vehicle to open you up to the wisdom in the natural world around and within you.
VIKING RUNE STONES
The Runes are powerful directional arrows, and incredibly healing to work with. Not only do they point out where your struggles may be, but also show you how to heal them. Runes show us a path for correct conduct, what right action really is. As we heal ourselves internally, our personal external world heals as well. We learn to be in this world but not of it. The Runes will show you how to form the ultimate partnership-a partnership with your Higher Self. “Nothing external matters here, except as it shows you its inner reflection.” Ralph Blum
LAKOTA INDIAN CARD READING
Regardless of one's personal belief system, these teachings, meditation cards, and native American concepts are useful for illuminating issues, patterns, problems, and answers. The spread is part of a ceremony, a process of purification. You will be given 7 steps to prepare for transformation and rebirth. It is the purpose of the supernaturals to force us to see our various aspects; to own and honor our duplicities as part of being human. They can then guide us to understanding, change, and true wholeness and balance. A shorter reading, looking at the influence of the four directions also an option with these cards.
In China, the professional soothsayer is held in great reverence. My studies of Mah Jongg and Feng Shui have been extensive. The modern game of Mah Jongg is actually a direct descendant of an ancient oracle thousands of years old. The four directions pinpoint the themes of the next six months of your life. Mah Jongg is uncanny, combining accuracy and mystery in a way that is unique. Watch how this “game” mirrors the magic of your life.
PAST LIFE READING
This session focuses on uncovering some of your past lifetimes. My abilities combined with the Phoenix cards, will help you to reconnect with the lessons and themes of other lifetimes and other selves. By understanding our past we become more clear about who we are in the present. You probably wont be surprised by the outcome of your past life reading. Most of us have dim and ghostly ideas of who we were. “Return me to the faraway places and times I once knew." This reading can powerfully jar your own memories of your past lifetimes.
ANGEL CARD READING
An angel card reading is an opportunity to ask your guides and angels a question while holding the question in mind. Every card that you draw comes to you for a reason. Angel card readings will help you to tune-in to the support and guidance available through your angelic and spiritual guides. We are always supported and guided, we simply need to learn to listen and pay attention to this guidance. The angel cards are a wonderful way to tune into the angelic realm.
During my 28 years of studying metaphysics, oracles, channeling, and other tools for increasing enlightenment, I came across the concept of the chief negative feature. We all have one, most of us have two, that block our ability to experience true happiness.
1. ARROGANCE +(positive) pride -(negative) vanity
2. SELF-DEPRECATION + humility - abasement
3. GREED + appetite - voracity
4. SELF-DESTRUCTION + sacrifice - suicide
5. IMPATIENCE + daring - intolerance
6. MARTYRDOM + selflessness -victimization
7. STUBBORNNESS + determination -obstinacy
These fear patterns or “dragons” are the primary cause of unhappiness, and block us from having fulfilling careers, relationships, prosperity... By discovering what our chief feature is, how it formed, and how it blocks us, we can take charge of ending its hold. As we look at our childhood and see where our fear and false personality started, we can then move onto practical, powerful methods for living our lives without the manipulation of fear/chief feature.

How oracle reading sessions work with Jim Ventura:
Many people are confused about how cards, and other oracles work. The cards, stones, and other divination tools I use are packed with insight and wisdom that come from hundreds of years of acquired knowledge and healing energies within them. On their own, they can be extremely powerful tools in increasing your understanding of what is happening in your life. The authors whom I often quote in sessions, have some powerful perspectives to share. When a client works with me, I do not absolve them of the fact that their thoughts and beliefs form their reality. The cards (maps) act a a connective point between me, my clients, and their Higher selves, spirit guides, and other intuitive connections to help them see into their own creation process. Both the positive opportunities and challenging aspects of one’s present, past, and future experiences of your unique reality creation are highlighted. My skills in interpreting the oracles after decades and thousands of sessions with other clients combined with my intuitive abilities make the benefits of a reading even more enlightening. Working with me not only involves getting insight and clarity, but also the benefits of my healing suggestions on how to resolve difficult experiences, and to open doors to creating a more empowered and fulfilling life!

Legally Ordained Minister
I am a legally ordained minister. If you are planning a wedding, to renew vows or to celebrate any major event with friends and family, I am available to officiate your ceremony. Rates vary so call or email for more information about some of the available options. My skills as a writer, public speaker, radio show host and spiritual counselor enable me to custom design the perfect ceremony for you. My extensive knowledge of many different cultural philosophies and perspectives will help you to make your event truly shine!
Home and Special Event Parties
While I charge approximately $100 for hour private sessions my party rate is only $80 per hour. If you are interested in hiring me to do a party, let me know and I can check on availability options. There are a number of formats for setting up parties and here is some basic information. Please don’t hesitate to ask of you have any questions about booking parties.
I am available to do private parties (Phoenix and surrounding cities) with “mini readings” for your guests. Parties can be booked with either 10- 15 minute or 30 minute session blocks. Many of the different oracles I work with can be chosen for your specific event.
The parties are a fun way to enable family and friends to become more comfortable with the benefits of oracle readings. I have done many of these parties in the past and they are truly memorable events for all of the guests.
Minimum and maximum numbers of readings/hours are required to book a party (Minimum of 3 hour bookings). $50.00 non-refundable deposit is required to hold a party date. Mini 15 minute readings are not recorded on audio tape. These sessions can be great option to consider when there are many people looking for a reading at your event. Book for three and a half hours or longer and the host gets their 15 minute reading free! Shorter 10 minute sessions are also an option for really large events.
You can either book me for the $80 an hour rate for your party or event so your guests don’t have to cover any costs or guests can cover their own costs for readings. Both options work very well, although I still prefer that the host collects all of the payments from guests for their readings with second option to make things move along more efficiently. If your guests are paying for their sessions they are still able to take advantage of the discount that comes with parties at bulk rates (normally $100 an hour).
30 minute readings are a very popular option. These more detailed sessions are recorded on audio cassette tape. If seven (3 and a half hours) or more guests are booked than the host gets their 30 minute session free! 15 minute sessions for $20.00. 30 minute sessions for $40.00.

“I'd actually been too busy to settle into a read of the September Snake Oil until just now. Once again, I feel like I got a private consultation! It was a particularly bad week for me emotionally, for several reasons, but the biggest being the filing of my final divorce papers. Your topic couldn't be more on target and your thoughts and reflections were most helpful. M.K New York
Again, thanks for sharing your experiences and knowledge with your reading community.” S.J. Arizona
"I have been a client of Jim's for over 10 years now, and I swear by his guidance. He is extremely knowledgeable, intuitive, intellectually versed in all aspects of his readings, in addition to being keenly psychic. His wisdom is gentle yet profound, and I am always left with an uplifting and lasting clarity when we finish our sessions. I have seen several psychics and astrologers over the years, but of all those I have gone to, Jim is the only one who has withstood the test of time. The beauty of his readings is that he does not try to predict a specific outcome or define your situation within the confines of a stereotypical box; but instead, he jumps into your story with an uncanny ability to grasp the details of your situation and, with an open mind and wise heart, helps you to literally navigate through your life so that you can better understand and recognize the characteristics of the energies at play. Ultimately, he helps you to see the big picture perspective of where you are and where you are headed; which empowers you to continue moving forward with a different perception and appreciation of what is unfolding. For a brief point in time, it honestly feels like somebody gets what you are going through and is there by your side to help you make things better. He's honestly amazing, and I am very grateful to have found him." J.F Nevada
“I have been seeing Jim for over 15 years. I started bringing my children when they were 9 and 11. They loved the numerology and astrology reports. They continued having regular counseling with Jim, throughout their teens and now as adults, they still consult with him. His counseling has helped me navigate through many challenges in my life and has helped me maintain a more positive attitude.When the hard times came, he helped me see there was always a light waiting for me. Jim has a witty way of delivering information which makes him a natural teacher and the information is easy to understand. I have referred many of my friends to him and everyone says the same thing, they have never had a more entertaining and helpful reading. Every class I have taken with him has also been really fun and insightful. He is a best teacher and oracle." I have been seeing Jim for over 15 years.
