I could use some extra money right now for various reasons I don't entirely have the brain to go into, so have a Tarot and Oracle post! For those of you who are new or have been linked here: I have 15 years of experience with the Tarot, and I read professionally both in person and over the internet.

Comment and receive a free one-card Tarot draw. I can choose the deck or you can; I can do general readings or a focus/question. You can choose any deck, but I'm going to be away from home for a few days, so if you want your reading before next weekend, stick to the ones that are *'d. I am happy to PM you if you'd like to receive your reading privately instead of publicly; let me know, because the default will be public.
If you signal-boost somewhere public and link me to it, you can either get a second Tarot card or an additional one-card Oracle draw for free. Let me know when you drop me the link which you'd prefer and also whether you have a different focus/question for the second card, and if Tarot, whether you'd like a different deck for each card (whether of your choice or mine).

Tarot Draconis*
Omegaland*
Welcome to Night Vale Tarot*
Robin Wood*
Spiral Tarot*
Linestrider Tarot
Ghost and Spirits
Halloween Tarot
Cat's Eye

Fallen Angel Oracle*
Halloween Oracle
Divine Circus

Then, if you'd like a longer reading, see below the cut for spreads on offer!

All spreads are $2/card for Tarot. Ones marked with an asterisk (*) are also $3/card for Oracle, because Oracle readings tend to take more out of me. As stated before, these are open to any deck, but if you don't choose one the starred ones, it will not get done until next weekend

Two-card draw:* The options are numerous, but some personal favorites are do/don't, pro/con, short term/long term, keep/let go, block/how to resolve it, and what you know/what's hidden from you.

Three-card draw*: The options are numerous, but some personal favorites are stop/start/continue, mind/body/spirit, past/present/future, pro/con/advice, positive/neutral/negative, what you can change/what you can't change/what you don't know, best case/worst case/most likely, drive/direction/destination, and where you are/where you want to be/how to get there.

Two Roads*: Spread of my own design to help you choose between two paths. Five cards: Starting point, option #1: action to take, option #1: outcome, option #2: action to take, option #2: outcome.

The Artists' Toolbox: Spread of my own design to help artists of all kinds get a handle on their strengths, habits, and what they should be trying to use more often. Five cards: the box (what you bring to your art that is fundamentally you), flashlight (your focus), batteries (your motivation), your most-used tool (what you are familiar and skilled with), and something new you should spend more time with.

Survival Spread: From the Omegaland Tarot, designed to help you figure out how to get through a difficult situation. This is one of my personal favorite spreads and I use it for a lot of problems, both internal and external. Six cards: location (your situation), food (how you sustain yourself), weapons (your mental state and strategy for getting through), fuel (what helps you adjust or move ahead), drink (your emotional state and how you feel about things), and stockpile (planning ahead or how to be more comfortable).

Six-Month Spread*: A look ahead at the next six months, one card per month.

Six Questions*: I originally designed this spread for writers and artists, but can also use it to take a look at a situation. Six cards: who, what, when, where, why, and how.

Chakra Spread: A spread to look at the same seven basic parts of life and living healthy that the seven chakras correspond to. Seven cards: root (primal responses, physical survival, grounds), sacral (connection to others, healthy sexuality), solar plexus (personal power, self-worth and self-confidence), heart (compassion, love, peace), throat (expression, communication, creativity), brow (intuition, wisdom, psychic ability), and crown (spirituality, understanding, connection to divine).

Horseshoe: Classic tarot spread that helps to explore a situation. Seven cards: you, something from the past that influences the situation, other information important to the situation, a description of the present situation, the main problem or obstacle, the immediate future, and the probable outcome.

Celtic Cross: Classic ten-card spread; I'm going to link a rough summary of it for those unfamiliar. I have my own way of handling it but it's very much a standard form of the spread.

Twelve-Month Spread: A look ahead at the next twelve month, one card per month.

If you're interested but none of those seem fitting, I also am familiar with a number of other spreads, and willing to discuss other options, or personalize one for your situation; comment or contact me to discuss what would work for you.

If you want a longer reading, you can comment, shoot me a PM, or email me at darkofthestory@gmail.com -- I'd prefer to send paypal info privately, and generally prefer to share longer readings privately, so let me know if you prefer PM or email if you do comment.

The signal boost can be found this way.

I would prefer just a general reading, please. I'll go with the Robin Wood Tarot. For the additional card, I'll select the additional one-card Oracle, from the Fallen Angel.

(I'm fine with it being public. Also, thank you!)

I'd love a tarot draw with a romantic focus maybe? You can pick the deck.

I signal-boosted on my private twitter because I've had... issues... recently with stalking but I'll mention this on my next post here and come back. :)

May I have a card relating to the future (I'm trying to make a choice but I'm not sure how, if that's helpful). Night Vale tarot if you don't mind.

Thank you so much!

It was about last Tuesday, but the reading was spot on, and so I'm satisfied. If you wanted to draw a different one, I could use a general outlook about finances for the foreseeable future.

I'd love a reading (and am willing to do a trade), but I'm torn between the Halloween Oracle and the Fallen Angel Oracle. Not sure how much info you want, but I feel very much like a fallen angel: knocked down after making a series of mistakes in trying to find my way. However, I LOVE Halloween. I appreciate the Christian and the Pagan aspects of the holiday and even the secular ones. UGH.

HOW CAN I CHOOSE???? DX

P.S. I did your Artist's Toolbox spread for my mom and she LOVED it. Her exact words were, "Wow. I can see why people pay for this."

From: [personal profile] analise010
Hmm. Can I ask for one card from each Oracle? I'm really interested in what they say together as I'm trying to restructure internally, so it can help the big picture.

I'd be glad to do any kind of reading (or two!), with the Rider Waite or Welcome to Night Vale decks. GMail is sending my DW messages to spam, so you can email me with details, if you don't want to leave them here.

I wasn't sure where else to reply but I purchased the Amethyst Oracle!!! I'm like 300% excited to use it, even though I know very little about Oracle decks. I gotta bide my time until it ships from Canada. DX

From: [personal profile] analise010
I'll let you know!!! Right now the deck is stuck in customs. DX

ETA: I'm hoping it gets here by Monday. THE AMETHYST ORACLE IS HERE AND I LOVE IT. My Rider-Waite and Night Vale decks are a little too direct sometimes, so I like that the Amethyst is soft and kind of silly.

If you - or anyone, really - wants a reading with it, I'm offering over here.

Thank you so much! Yesterday, I made a 1- and 5-year plan for where I want my life to go and, since I start the new job on Monday, I decided to do a little more art before I go back. I've been recording podfic again and bought a few more things to make string art. Even as I stood in line, I thought, "Should I really be doing this? Do I deserve this extravagance?" And the answer is yes. I can spend $15 on yarn and paint to make something that feeds my soul.

But even more than that, I feel like I've spent 3 months grieving and doing what other people thought was best for me. Now it's time to rise out of the ashes and decide what I want for myself. ♥

- FAMILY: I did your two draws tonight and I gotta tell you...I'm so sorry. On the draw for family, I chose the King of Cups first, decided to reshuffle, and then chose The Empress. At this point, I looked at my Rider-Waite deck and said to her, "Are you kidding me???"

Put together... you gotta go with your gut. I did a family-related reading for you previously, which told you to give your mother a chance, but from what I've seen, she's can't/won't/isn't ready to be the person that you need. (If this wasn't about your mother, I apologize for overstepping.) Trust your feelings when it comes to your family, but don't let them overpower you. Nurture the relationships that are stable, healthy, and bring joy to your life.

- CREATIVITY: For this one, I used the Night Vale deck, since he is a little more outside the box. I chose the King of Pentacles. What a great card! I don't know what you're working on creatively, but it's going to work out. I even looked up a description of this card and found He is no longer required to struggle to achieve what he desires... because he has already proven himself.

You've done all the work, struggled, set things in motion, and now it's time to reap the rewards. This is one area of your life where everything you touch will turn to gold. :)
