Today’s question is: When a friend or family member asks you for a Tarot reading what do you do? Will you read for people you are close to?https://youtu.be/KpHv1l9MZHA As always everything I mention here is my perspective and experience, take what resonates to you and leave the rest.Some people have no problem reading for family and friends. Please always go with what you feel the most comfortable with and do that. There is no right or wrong way to approach this. Always go with what feels right to you.Here are some things I would like to share with you for your consideration...

Oracle Decks and TarotLike many Tarot Readers I also have an abundance of Oracle decks that I use in my spiritual practice.

Conducting readings at psychic and wellness fairs can be a fantastic experience.It can also be extremely exhausting.Usually fairs are long days and most are weekends with back to back readings required for all readers and healers. I have conducted readings at many fairs and here are some of my tips for getting the most out of reading at Fairs and taking care of yourself in the process.1. Stay hydrated - You can take pee breaks you know. Do that inbetween readings, people will understand as long as you don't take forever. Keep a bottle with you at all times during the day and sip away. Just make sure you have someone to cover your stall while you are in...

I am currently reading The Steampunk Tarot by Barbara Moore before I post a review and in her Tarot Basics chapter she asks the reader to ask themselves some questions about what they believe a Tarot reading to be.The questions are good ones and I encourage anyone who works with the Tarot either as a tool for spiritual development for themselves or a professional reader for others to ask these questions.So I am going to pretend that Barbara is asking me these questions and share them here.1. Can the future be told, and if so to what extent?I believe that...

When I received The Wildwood Tarot I had a quick look through and quickly realised that these are very different to the Rider-Waite or Thoth frameworks I am used to. So before reviewing it I wanted to work with the deck to get to know it.So I started drawing a card each day to reflect on. I did this at night, treating this deck more like an oracle deck, I didn't want to assume that I knew what it was going to mean. I did of course make the correlation to the Rider-Waite counterpart, but that is something I do...

Even though I have been working with the Tarot for over 10 years I still often wonder why certain people get Tarot readings.There are many ways to read Tarot Cards. There are those readers who are not psychic at all and will not carry out predictive readings and use the Tarot as more of a self reflective and counselling tool. Then there are the readers who are very intuitive and use their developed psychic abilities to conduct their readings, as well as utilizing their knowledge of the Tarot Cards. Some readers never learn the 'traditional' meanings of the cards and...

I really have had a week of fail. I did not really achieve anything I set out to do at work. I tried but it is getting harder to get a result and I am worried about getting my goals done. Also had a rather interesting social experience. Just one of those weeks where you arrive at the weekend and wonder what the hell just happened.This is compacted by the fact that the Moon is Waning in Gemini. I have not slept all week properly, my thoughts have been racing and it seems that like always I have too much...

I am not sure about other Tarot Readers out there but I really do not like the 3 card Spread (Past, Present and Future) and I think I now know why.Besides being very over simple. Everytime I would lay down three cards in order I would understand why the 'Present Card' was nessassry and the 'Future Card' (usually the card most people are most interested in anyway when they come for a Tarot Reading) but it was the 'Past Card' that always got me.Why bother with the past, I mean the Querant already knows what happened so why cover it?...

It has been a really lazy Easter Weekend. I really should have done some Uni work, maybe taken some more photos for Etsy, completed my book list, but I didn't.I am currently watching Disney's the Princess and the Frog. (Oh if only I could sing my Prince Charming to life)The Tarot is used in the movie (how can you not have divination and magic when you are telling a story about New Orleans) and while the villain in the movie uses them, they are at least represented correctly. They use the three card spread, telling the past, present and future...
