30 Day Blog Challenge

30 Day Blog Challenge: Day 30

I found this blog challenge and thought it would be fun to do along side my other posts. The questions are posted all over but here’s where I grabbed them from.

Question 30: Do I practice any other forms of divination? If so, what is it, and do you use them alongside the Tarot as to gain more information and insight, or as something seperate entirely?

I used to play around with runes. I even made a bunch back in the day. But I just never connected with that system. Still think they’re really awesome though.

I also used to play with pendulums. I have a pretty one still but the whole pendulum thing just isn’t really legit. It’s fun to do thoughon occasion.

…. aaaand that’s it for the 30 day blog challenge! Whew. That was kind of fun. There were some meh questions but also good ones. All y’all should do the challenge too!

30 Day Blog Challenge: Day 29

I found this blog challenge and thought it would be fun to do along side my other posts. The questions are posted all over but here’s where I grabbed them from.

Question 29: Do I have a Tarot mentor? Who are they (in relation to me) and how do they inspire me?

I don’t have a mentor, never had one. It would be cool to have one I think. It would also be awesome to be a mentor to someone else.

It might be tough because it may be best to find like minded people and people with my views seem kind of hard to find? I could be completely wrong, let me know if I am!

30 Day Tarot Challenge: Day 28

I found this blog challenge and thought it would be fun to do along side my other posts. The questions are posted all over but here’s where I grabbed them from.

Question 28: Does anyone I know not agree with my Tarot practices?

Hmm I’m sure there is. I think a lot of people I know don’t know I do tarot. Not that I’m hiding it but I’m not advertising it either. I’m sure there are a few people in my life who don’t agree to some degree.

 

30 Day Tarot Challenge: Day 27

I found this blog challenge and thought it would be fun to do along side my other posts. The questions are posted all over but here’s where I grabbed them from.

Question 27: Do I have a special time and/or place that I use my Tarot? If so, do you reserve the deck specifically for that purpose?

No special time or place. I would like to get a really fancy luxurious tarot cloth to lay out specifically for reading to set up a “sacred space” an act as part of a bit of a ritual to get in the mood.

I don’t have different decks for different purposes but I have been “interviewing” decks and trying to see about having specific purposes for them.

30 Day Blog Challenge: Day 26

I found this blog challenge and thought it would be fun to do along side my other posts. The questions are posted all over but here’s where I grabbed them from.

Question 26: Have I ever regretted a particular reading, either for yourself or another?

I will occasionally mention some bad readings at had. One of them I guess I regret a little bit because she wanted me to feel bad about the results. I think the complaint was that I was right, or something. Another bad reading was the querent was just really annoying. I just made it a point to never read for her again.

30 Day Blog Challenge: Day 25

I found this blog challenge and thought it would be fun to do along side my other posts. The questions are posted all over but here’s where I grabbed them from.

Question 25: What is the most dramatic/meaningful reading I’ve ever read? (Not necessarily the most accurate)

It was earlier this year, for a friend who has been going through a lot of trouble. I was a bit drunk at the time which added to The Feels (the reading was done with the other person not present). I found that it hit exactly on the nose with what was going on and it was so emotional I didn’t really complete the reading and I didn’t report back on it. But I took a picture of the spread so we can revisit it at any time.

30 Day Blog Challenge: Day 24

I found this blog challenge and thought it would be fun to do along side my other posts. The questions are posted all over but here’s where I grabbed them from.

Question 24: How accurate do I believe my readings are (or, do they accurately convey messages from spirits/deity)?

For my personal readings they have been rather accurate. There have been some that were painfully accurate.

For others I’ve been accurate enough that people have gotten uncomfortable or mad at me. Some others I never heard back from. The ones where I use less intuition and rely more on traditional reading seem less accurate, but then again I’m not super great at traditional.

I don’t believe anything comes from spirits or anything so that doesn’t apply.

30 Day Blog Challenge: Day 23

I found this blog challenge and thought it would be fun to do along side my other posts. The questions are posted all over but here’s where I grabbed them from.

Question 23: What question do I ask most often to the deck? (Or, ask on the behalf of another?)

I like general type readings I guess. I don’t often have specific questions, just want to meditate and be introspective. I think for others it’s been relationship type questions.

30 Day Blog Challenge: Day 22

I found this blog challenge and thought it would be fun to do along side my other posts. The questions are posted all over but here’s where I grabbed them from.

Question 22: Do I charge money (or other ways of compensation) for my readings/services?

I never have because I rarely read for others. But I wouldn’t hesitate to if I got comfortable enough to read regularly and well enough to charge. This is for a few reasons:

  1. If I’m reading for others I consider it a “for entertainment purposes only” sort of thing. People pay for all forms of entertaiment so why can I get paid a little?
  2. I have spent a lot of time learning how to do this. Some sort of compensation, even if just a cup of coffee, would feel nice.
  3. I had a friend who did psychic readings. Now, I don’t really agree with her method and beliefs, but other people loved her and found her to be useful. She only started charging people because she got super popular. Putting a price on it helps keep away the jackasses and people who wouldn’t value her time. It also helped make sure that people who come back don’t come back too often because people can become addicted/dependant on readings.
  4. Kind of like #2. I have no job and no real marketable skills. It’s not for lack of trying. But I do have my issues that makes finding a job incredibly hard (i.e. I gave up searching after 10+ years). If I could turn tarot into a job, even making a little here and there, I will absolutely do it.
  5. If I wasn’t charging and I did a reading and someone insisted on some sort of compensation, I would only accept if it really meant something to them. Some people just really want to show their appreciating and I think it’s rude to refuse in those cases.

Now, there are readers of all sorts out there who are absolute scumbags and they’re taking advantage of people. Some of those people are vulnerable.

One reason why I don’t read for others much is I don’t want to be accused of taking advantage, though I’d like to think I’d make sure the person I read for is sound enough of mind to know that it is for entertainment and not something super serious.

30 Day Blog Challenge: Day 21

I found this blog challenge and thought it would be fun to do along side my other posts. The questions are posted all over but here’s where I grabbed them from.

Question 21: How do I feel when I do readings?

Not really sure how to answer this one. When it’s a reading for someone else I tend to be nervous because I’ve had aa couple bad experiences and I’m just not good enough or confident enough.

When it’s for myself I tend to be rather chillax, drunk, and/or just having fun.
