Hi Woodwytch. I came across this thread awhile ago (before my original account was hacked) and have only now stumbled across it again. I dabble a little in tarot myself, but am still very much an amateur. If you are still offering to read a card I would appreciate it as I am going through a very difficult situation.

If you have the time, and it is not infringing on others requests for a card drawn, I would appreciate if you could see what another card shows...
I'm trying to interpret what my previous card said as well as other reading I have done online.
I normally wouldn't bother you, except your reading has more of a personal touch over the generic online readings I have been checking the past week or so...

hello, been meaning to post earlier but needed to double check some of the information. I'm a bit tired of the 'anomaly' , so I'm moving on to an area that i'm still kind of researching on my own. Like I said it's not going to be about me, but about some people in a far away land that's very culturally different and different belief system (the intersection between culture and religion is sometimes a very fuzzy distinction) which is why I think this will be a bigger challenge.
This is about the burmese 'weizzar' more about the two famous ones in Burma who are Bo Bo Aung and Bo Min Gaung. In Burma they are widely known by everybody, but in the west nobody has a clue who they are unless they are academics researching the cultural history of Burma and there isn't a whole lot of information about them.
I want to share a couple of stories about the both of them so you get an idea of why I'm interested in this subject as well as give background info.
This is Bo Bo aung, he's a bit of a historical figure in the 1700's. There is a legend where in school he was a school mate of a future king of burma named Bodaw Paya, back then they were friends and made something of a friendship pact. Fast forward a couple of years, Bo Bo aung becomes a full fledge weizzar and is becoming well-known by people and Bodaw Paya is king. The king decides that Bo Bo aung is becoming a little too popular and decides to execute him despite being former friends. As Bo Bo aung is brought before the king he issues a challenge toward him before he is executed, he asks him to wipe out a symbol on the floor he draws called a 'wa' in burmese it is basically an 'O' and in weizzar tradition is a symbolic rune. The king tries to wipe it out, but then finds out there are two more , and as he tries to wipe those other ones out, they keep growing until the whole floor is covered in symbols. At last the king gives up, and Bo Bo aung tells him directly " If you could not erase the symbol I drew, what hope do you have of killing me?"
At that point of course the king feels powerless and extremely sorry for himself, while his former friend who I bet wasn't thrilled at having been the object of an execution basically gives something of a lecture and leaves.
This is Bo min gaung, who is actually I think the most famous weizzar and the most recent one as he lived in the 20th century and during ww2.
There a couple of interesting stories about him. When he lived during the British Occupation of Burma he was well known by people, the British administration probably decided he is a threat and 'tried' to put him in Jail. As they put him in, they find him wandering outside, they put him in again, and then they find him outside again, then they put him in again... and well you get the idea and no they weren't successful. Another interesting story is during WW2 when bombs were going off, and gunfire was going off and everyone was ducking for cover he just walked around normally like as if there was nothing, the Japanese soldiers were so impressed that they donated food to him. There are alot of other stories but I think this should suffice, but I'll leave a personal account of one person who met him.
In summation BoBo Aung is supposedly a master of runes/alchemy. Where as Bo min Gaung more recent, was known as something of a madcap (crazy guy), supposedly they say he did this on purpose to avoid drawing too much attention to the overt use of his powers. They both belong to the same mystical lineage.
So my request for a reading is about one or both of these individuals and whether or not these so called legends actually happened? The choice is up to you to focus on which person or story to which you can get a good bead on or be able to tune into. I'd be curious to what you'd come up with as they are reported not to be 'ordinary' but who knows maybe they are? I delayed writing this because of the length but atleast the anecdotes here may prove to be enertaining, thanks for reading.

Thank you for the reading Lady Woodwytch. Sorry I have taken so long to reply but I was out of town for a week. The reading was very accurate as there have been a lot of things clouding my mind and the week of relaxation was just what I needed.
It is amazing how the readings are so appropriate for each person. Thank you for the services you perform.

I'll take a card. Maybe it'll tell me something about myself.

Haha, yes of course I realize how silly it would be for you to read everyone's previous postings, I was joking. It was more of a commentary (and compliment, actually) because your reading was eerily accurate - as if you had been reading all of my posts.
But, yes, I will definitely take you up on that offer for assistance if I have any questions. I'd actually never charge money for any type of help, it just doesn't work that way for me. It is wrong in my heart, one of those things that I know in my soul isn't right. I can call a whole season winners for sports games correctly just for fun, but when I try to call it for a bet or money, it is always wrong. Every time. Same with lottery tickets. I sabotage it on the soul level, even when I try to trick myself out of it, the answer will still be wrong.
So, I am more interested in this for the practice in speaking intuition than anything. I tend to "hear" things about people that they don't want anyone else to know. And then they get all upset that I brought it up and try to deny it or what not... So, yeah, I need practice in being tactful (?) or, maybe just learning how to hear more than just their secrets.
