I have been drowning in deadlines, and need some time for decompression! I’ve also been wanting to get back to refreshing my Tarot skills. So, I am offering a one-time, limited offer on some practice Tarot readings!

If you’re interested, post with 1) Something that tells me a little bit about who you are as a person, and 2) The area you want me to focus on (career, love life, an particularly thorny decision you are struggling with). You can be as vague or specific as you want, but specific might make it easier to do a focused reading.

Some details and caveats:

*I am not a psychic, nor do a play one on TV. I don’t really believe in the concept of supernatural psychic knowledge—to me, reading Tarot is about using our regular old human intuition, by disrupting some of our silly hyper-logical thought processes in favor of some non-linear, archetypal thinking. I like using Tarot to think out about my own problems, but I haven’t had much practice doing readings for other people.

*I’m not sure how many I’ll get through—if there’s only a few requests, I’ll probably get to them all tonight, if not, I’ll try to get through them in the next couple of days. However, if there’s a bunch of interest, I’m probably not going to make it through them all.

*I’ll be using The Rider-Waite Tarot—it’s not my favorite deck, but I’m trying to get back to re-learning the basic structure and interpretation of the cards. I’m used to using a book and/or website to look up meanings, and will be using those to assist me—but I’d love to get to the point where I can do this WITHOUT looking up every individual card.

*I’ll do a four-card spread. The first card represents the Querent (ie, the person asking), the second signifies their Journey, the third signifies Guidance, and the fourth signifies Outcomes. I’ll be working on trying to read all of these together in a coherent story.

Feel free to chime in with other Tarot-related discussion! I’d love to hear more if anyone has a favorite deck. I *want* more because they are SO PRETTY, but I currently have four decks and only use them occasionally (and one I seem to be perpetually losing, then finding again, then losing... I should search for it because it’s currently missing).
