Saephara was born in New Orleans. When she was five, her family moved to London, Ontario where she lived until she attended York University in Toronto. After she received her BA, she had two sons with her filmmaker husband and she launched her professional writing career. When she and her husband divorced, Saephara took many courses that resulted in her receiving certificates in tarot counseling, touch for health and reiki. After Saephara turned forty, she met her second husband when he came to her for a tarot reading. They were married in May 2008 in a gothic-style wedding. Saephara has written several horror and erotica novels as well as nonfiction. The Sextrology Series is the culmination of Saephara’s interests all combined into one big, juicy, erotic dark fantasy.

Toronto Psychic Party & Event Experiences
Everything was great! Everyone enjoyed her readings and liked the added touch! Thanks again! – Angela, Strolling Readings, 80th Birthday Party!
Just wanted to send a very big thank you on behalf of myself and the Bride for the tea leaf readings on October 11th. Autumn and Sephera were by far the draw of the whole Bridal Shower…people could not stop raving about it! Both Sephera and Autumn were personable, accomodating and friendly…even I (and 2 of the bridesmaids) were unable to have readings completed due to the never ending lineup for the readers!! Thanks again Ryan [Booking Agent]and please pass on my thanks to Sephera and Autumn as well. Sincerely — Nilakshi, Bridal Shower Tea Party
It was fantastic, thank you very much. — Glen B., Family Thanksgiving
I really liked Sephera. She was very friendly and professional. She adjusted to the party atmosphere very well. Her smile and costume were magic. I was impressed by the professionalism of the organizers, Ryan and Willow. They were prompt and delivered what they\’ve promised. Sephera, the tarot reader, was very warm and charming. Our guests were very pleased with her readings. Her gypsy costume was very authentic and blended very well with the atmosphere for tarot reading. I am recommending 3 of cups services to anybody that want to have an exceptional event. Laura E. – Adult Birthday party
[Sephera], the Tarot card reader was effective and efficient in her readings, based on the feedback received from the students. Aaron M. – Program Director, Humber Student Foundation HSF, Humber College – March Magic Psychic Fair
The readers were great! Everyone enjoyed their readings & everything was great all around. (Sephera & Karima) — Mena H., Wawanesa, Holiday staff event
The readings went very well thanks. The girls really enjoyed their card readings with Sephera. — Andrea C., 13th Girls Birthday Party
We just wanted to send a quick note to say thank you. Our event on Saturday night was a hit and our whole group enjoyed the readings by both Autumn and Sephera. There were even a few people who we thought wouldn’t participate and they did and said they really enjoyed it. So thank you for helping us kick off the night!! — Jennifer M., Magnum Food Brokers
Sephera was absolutely amazing. The students loved her and she as so accomodating. She was such a hit that I am even suggesting we get two different types of readers for next year. — Melissa L. Guelph Humber Student Association
Tarot Reader, and more…
Did you know there were more than eight different astrologies like Chinese, Western, Arabic, Vedic, and Celtic? Astrology is most used in an event setting as a tool to analyze character and personality traits, advising on suitable careers, and best love matches just by knowing a guest’s zodiac sun sign. However, some readers are able to either print up a full report or use a computer to delve more deeply into the area of guest interest. TOP
Cartomancy is similar to Tarot in that a) it uses cards and b) it’s the minor or 56 card section of the Tarot. When someone thinks of a Fortune Teller this is one of the tools that comes to mind of an old Gypsy lady reading the future. Cartomancy usually uses a normal playing deck with the symbols of hearts, diamonds, clubs, and spades; numbers, three court cards, and a Joker. There are no pictures on the cards except for the Joker. TOP
Crystal Ball / Skrying
Skrying can use anything that reflects. What’s interesting about skrying though is that the reader is bypassing the reflection and manifesting a cloudy or swirly substance out of which symbols and pictures arise to be interpreted. Examples of skrying tools are crystal balls, mirrors, a bowl of water and ink, or a glass. Psychics often use this tool for focusing their sense. TOP
Have you ever wondered what your mission was in life? Numerology uses a guests birth date and/or name to divine all sorts of things such as career path, how you love and live, personality traits & behaviours, a past life, and why you were born. There are many forms of numerology from different parts of the world. Pythagoras brought numerology to the western world. TOP
Psychic / Intuitive
The word or term Psychic is both an umbrella word for Psychics, Intuitives, Fortune tellers, Sooth-sayers, Seers, Diviners, Oracles, Gypsies Mystics, Spiritualists, Mediums, as well as by the tool a reader may use: Astrologist, Cartomancer, Coffee Grounds Reader, Crystal Ball Reader, Face Reader, Handwriting Analyst, Numerologist, Palm Reader, Tarot Reader, Tea Leaf Reader. However, Psychic also means (and perhaps is reflective of the most accurate use of the term) the abiltiy to use a normal sense to a heightened degree and in unusual ways.
Sight = Clairvoyance, Feeling/Touch = Clairsentience, Hearing = Clairaudient, Knowing = Claircognizance, Tasting = Clairgustance, and Smelling = Clairalience.
Many times people will ask for a Clairvoyant as that tends to be the most understood psychic sense — probably because it appears to be the most dramatic. However, any psychic sense used well makes not one sense better than the other. The psychic part in our company name 3 of Cups Psychic Event Entertainment is reflective of the umbrella term and most popularly understood meaning of the word psychic though it’s not the most accurate term as just read.
“Intuition is a combination of historical (empirical) data, deep and heightened observation, and an ability to cut through the thickness of surface reality. Intuition is like a slow motion machine that captures data instantaneously and hits you like a ton of bricks. Intuition is a knowing, a sensing that is beyond the conscious understanding — a gut feeling. Intuition is not pseudo-science.”
An Intuitive is quite a rational person. TOP
The Tarot is a collection of cards which contain an allegory / story of life milestones, mystical experience, archetypes, and more. Some Tarot decks have picture stories on all cards while others only have symbols similar to playing cards. In fact, many say that Tarot originates from games that used a playing deck. Tarot has it’s physical origins and/or popularity in the Renaissance period (1400-1500’s) and it re-emerged in popularity in the late 1800’s and into the 1900’s. Tarot is still wildly popular in the modern person’s mind. When someone thinks of a Fortune Teller this is one of the tools that comes to mind of an old Gypsy lady reading the future. Tarot is useful for telling the story of a guests life from past, present, and future as well as past lives. TOP
