I've been sort of not doing anything for a while now, and while there's reasons for that, it's beginning to eat at me. I may try and put up a post for prompts at some point, but for now, have a Tarot post, since it's been a while. Fair warning: My responses may be slow -- I will try and get to anything posted by the end of next weekend at latest, to give you an idea how slow -- so you may not want to ask about anything super time-sensitive.

So: Comment and receive a two-card reading. Why two cards? Because honestly, interpreting based on some kind of rough spread is easier on me than interpreting one standalone card. If you really have your heart set on a single card, though, I can do one-cards too, just let me know. I can choose the deck or you can; I can do a specific option you'd like for the spread (see below) or figure out what's best myself; I can go general or you can pick a focus/question. 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. (You can also PM me if you'd rather not ask or reveal details publicly.)

All readings are free this time around, and I am not offering options for extra cards or paid readings right now. (Though if you really want to tip, you can go through my partner's paypal into our moving fund. Also, feel free to signal boost if you'd like.) Also, some background, if you're new or unaware of it: I have sixteen years of experience with the Tarot, and I've read frequently for people over the internet, both professionally and for fun, especially in the last five years or so.

Decks: Links go to website for the deck or to Aeclectic so you can see the art style if you'd like.I default towards the middle three unless the situation really seems to call for G&S or WTNV, or they're specifically requested.


Some examples of two-card spreads:
  • Heart of the Situation/Challenge (The "Two-Card Cross", the first two cards of the Celtic Cross)
  • Do/Don't
  • Pro/Con
  • Short Term/Long Term
  • Keep/Let Go Of
  • Now/Later
  • Yesterday/Tomorrow
  • Strength/Weaknesses
  • Pay Attention To/Ignore
  • Stop/Start
  • Stop/Continue
  • Start/Continue
  • Help/Hinder
  • Internal Influence/External Influence
  • Conscious Influence/Unconscious Influence
  • Worst Case Scenario/Best Case Scenario
  • Outcome of Option #1/Outcome of Option #2 (for choices)
  • What You Want/What You Need
  • What Should You Know/What Should You Do (best for a specific situation)
  • What to Work For/What to Leave Behind
  • What's Causing a Block/How to Resolve It
  • What You Know/What's Hidden From You
  • What You Can Change/What You Can't Change
  • What Needs to Change/What Needs to Stay the Same

Linestrider, please. I have a difficult conversation I've been putting off, and I'd like the What to Know/What to Do about it, I think.

What's causing a block/How to resolve it in regards to my brain and being terrified of words.

(Yes, I know I'm not being original, shush. I feel like this is not a bad thing to ask considering my plans.)

If the endeavor is what I suspect it is, the Ten is worth listening to. I will need to remember to take care of myself, and expect to need to call in help -- despite my tendency to believe I can muddle through on my own. Knowing that I actually have reached the end may be hard. I will be putting in a lot, and will keep reminding myself that I'm doing it for myself, and the reward that will be worth it is the improvement in my own outlook, despite any other costs that may show up.

Alright for What Should You Know/What Should You Do (whichever deck you think fits best)

I've been helping out with a group that's trying to start a community governance based social media network (specifically a fork of an existing open source project, called mastodon) but there's been several factors keeping us from being able to make progress (it turns out setting up community governance is hard, and most people want the rewards but not to put in the work.)

I was tempted to ask for Outcome of Option #1/Outcome of Option #2 (for choices) on walking away, but I don't want to walk away unless its completely hopeless so: what do I need to know, and what can I do to make this project work?

May I have a reading with the Raven's Prophecy deck? And What's Causing a Block/How to Resolve It with regards to my trying to make new relationships? (Not romantic.)

Thank you so much! And no worries about it...if you can.

I'm going to be supremely ridiculous and ask if I can read for you? I'm trying to adjust my style to be... softer? More thourough? Also, I just started my new job and am trying to move myself, but I could probably throw you some cash in a couple weeks.

I'll take whatever works for you. You know better than I do that specific questions get specific answers, buuuuut, sometimes specific questions just bring up more questions. XD Feel free to email me about what's going on and I'll choose a spread that works. Is Welcome to Night Vale okay?

I just got some fucking CURVE BALL news this week, so I'm going to a reader in town I met a few months ago. BUT THANK YOU FOR THE OFFER! I would have taken you up on it if I didn't already have the appointment.

If you are up for one more (and as a friend-of-fiend reader, I utterly understand if you're not) then a Pay Attention To/Ignore draw for a workplace situation, using the deck of your choice, would be awesome.
