Yes, I know, there are already a handful of Tarot-card reading threads all over ATS.
I was hoping to do something a little bit different with this one though. Mainly, instead of a single-card reading, as Rainbowresidue is currently
offering right here
, I was going to attempt to do a multiple-card reading for the
individual who requested it. I also wanted this to be a little bit more interactive of a thread. So, here is what I am offering:
1) This will be a minimal-request thread. I am going to start with only the first 4 replies
. This is because I am a busy individual, and often
go several days without getting a chance to visit ATS. If, after I have replied to the original 4, I still have time to devote, I will accept requests
again for a second round of individuals (number to be decided when we reach that bridge).
2) I am open to trying any
type of inquiry, within reason of course. My deck cannot tell you tomorrow's winning lottery numbers, or the exact
time and day of your death. Be reasonable if you have a request. If I think it is within the guidance of a spread, I will do the inquiry you ask of
me. If I deem your request to be foolish and/or impossible I will decline it.
If I decline your request, I will first U2U you, to explain why,
and ask if you have another request. If you do not, I will attempt a "general reading" for you.
3) Your choice of deck. To add some specification to the reading, I am letting the Querent pick which deck they would like me to read from. I think
deck choice says as much about me (the Reader) as it does about you (the Querent). So, pick whichever one appeals to you most, for whatever reason.
Each deck, from my experience, has a slightly different meaning/association for each card as well. So, surprises abound. I currently have the
following decks to choose from:
The traditional Rider-Waite
Aleister Crowley's Thoth Tarot
Israel Regardie's Golden Dawn
The Kabbalistiches Tarot
The Celtic Tarot
Donald Tyson's Necronomicon Tarot
5) Timing. As stated earlier, I am a busy individual. I cannot devote every hour, of every day, to ATS. I will do my best to perform one reading per
day. I believe this is fair, as it allows me to respond to everyone in the first round of requests within a week, as well as not taking up all of my
time to handle other life affairs. If I am on a roll, I'll certainly do another reading though.
6) Images. I do not, as of right now, have scans of all of the card-images for my decks uploaded anywhere.
Obviously, there's a bit of a
copyright law about that. But, if I do have an image of the card to accompany the reading, I will be sure to upload it as well.
7) Trolls and/or disbelievers: move along. I will neither respond to, nor take your requests.
The spread that I offer utilizes 6 cards, drawn in this order:
An External World
An Internal World
The Significator symbolizes you, the Querent. The Cover will offer some insight into the inquiry which you give me. The Ascendant will present the
most-likely route which you will follow. The External World will explain the involvement of friends, family, and co-workers. The Root will explore
subconscious elements, or, your past. Finally, the Internal World will analyze you, as you are, and as you will be.
At times I do feel intuitive bursts, which permit me to see other elements in a reading. These are not events which I can control though. If I see
something more in your reading, I will expand, and try to include it.
I would hope that it is obvious by now that requests of a life/death nature will be denied, and I will point you toward whatever
authority I deem proper for dealing with such issues. The Tarot, as I use it, is a tool for self-exploration, and guidance through life with issues
that help us grow as individuals. Please, do not ask me to try and divine anything related to life/death situations. Those type of events should not
be left to anyone's judgment but your own.
Requests are now being taken for the first 4 people who reply.
