Okay, so this time I wanted to do something different & I just got my first Thoth/Crowley deck so…
Here we have a set of readings that have a very different feel to them — perhaps because I’m deep in the weeds of my own borderline-nihilistic thoughts or perhaps because the new cards gave me new ideas to work with.
Either way, I think I may start to develop some new read styles going forward. I’m really too tapped project-wise to go forward with the Youtube stuff at this time. I’m thinking another month at least. Overall, I’m not in a great spot mentally at this point & shouting into the void via this blog is familiar & comfortable.
So, here are some notes from my previous read post in case you missed it:
In the past I’ve mostly done drunk tarot readings with friends on sabbats. But since we are no longer able to meet up, I plan to offer somewhat sober online readings weekly, by the moon cycle. I’m a little behind as the Flower Moon was actually on the 7th, but I’ll try to be a little early next week.
For me, tarot is super fucking fun. Here are all these random symbols, archetypes & you have to try to weave a story out of it. & sometimes that story functions — like myriad other narratives — as a mirror allowing you to see your own situation from another perspective.
It’s fucking brilliant & I love it, but it’s entertainment, it’s storytelling. While I consider myself a fairly intuitive & empathetic human being, I’m nothing special. I claim no particular talent & in general, I know nothing.
I tend to read in a way that emphasizes positive growth & try to offer a couple of different interpretations to make room for different philosophical or spiritual perspectives. However, I’m not interested in writing a novel-length interpretations, so my advice is to take what best suits you & leave the rest behind.
Note: These readings are very freeform & I’m probably only going to go back through & edit as needed, so if you see a typo or a sentence that does not make sense please let me know. Since I tend to ramble, I will include a TLDR version at the end.
