So! My spreads are finally dry, and I have readings for you~~ (Thank you so much to [personal profile] niya for helping me set this up so I can get paid!)

Deck I'm using: Shadowscapes by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

Readings available:

  • One card draws: Free

  • Three card draws (Mind/Body/Soul, Past/Present/Future): Free

  • Large spreads: $7 (will also do trades for a piece of art, or a story at least 300 words)

    You can always ask for one and three card draws first, to get a feeling for if you like me as a reader. As many as you like. ^v^

    (...ppplease excuse my messy attic for the pictures m( _ _ )m They are very big spreads because the cards are big so, I only have one place to lay them and it's not very tidy...)

    • Tree of Energy spread (7 cards): good for seeing a detailed picture of your spiritual health/state/nature, for finding out a place of spiritual or emotional block, or looking at a picture of a current situation, just the general health or state of something. "What is this right now?"

      I think this is an interesting one because it is kind of like... doing a health scan of your energy, but with cards! I'm quite excited about this. I seem to be good with this spread too.

    • Alchemical Transformation spread (7 cards): good for a very detailed instruction of how to progress in a situation, or how a situation will change over time. This can look at a progress up to length of your whole life, or, a short length of a few weeks or months, but it's better for longer situations because of the detail. It's the opposite of the Tree of Energy, it's about movement. "How do I get where I want to be, and what are my struggles on the way?"

    • Cygnus spread (10 cards): good for something in between the first two. This has a picture of who you are, what influenced you until now, what supports your "flying" and gets in the way, and where you should go. It's good if you don't need to know a super super detailed picture of how to get somewhere like the Alchemical Transformation, but you want to know the general direction, and what might influence you that you need to think about. "Where did this come from, and where is it going? What are the wind conditions like for setting on this journey?"

  • Custom spreads! (No trades)

  • For $12, I will make you a custom spread based on a constellation, creature or symbol (up to 12 cards) and give you a detail reading from that spread. If you want a spread with more than 12 cards (for example, you want me to work with a constellation that has more than 12 stars), it's $1 extra for each card.

    $10 extra if you want me to make an actual painting of the spread and mail it (I need to buy very large card and it's expensive o.o these are about 30 inches by 40 or something ridiculous), otherwise I just design it on the computer and tell you how it looks. If you want paintings I'll do them better than I did here, these are a little rough.

  • For $25, I'll make three custom spreads of your choice and give you three readings. +$20, three paintings as well.

  • Special deal on spreads! I want to also help my reader and friend Charley, so... if you buy any reading worth $5 or more from [personal profile] whatawaytoburn, I'll make a custom spread for you and give you a reading from that spread, for $7. So, you can get two readings (and a custom spread) for the price of one!

So, you want a reading~? You can ask a particular question or just ask me what the cards want you to know. Here are other questions I need you to answer before the reading (I find this really helps me give an accurate reading):

  • Focus (some kind of thing you identify with strongly that I can use to get a sense of you)

  • Out of these 4 categories, what is most represents you: passionate inspiration and outward directed energies (wands), gentle inside emotion and spiritual thoughts (cups), thinking and intelligence/communications in an unemotional way (swords), or practical and physical things (pentacles)? Please give me the suit that most fits you.

    If you're not sure, ask this question: if you have a free day, will you like to:
    • go to a karaoke to sing with friends (wands)
    • spend the day dreaming out of your window (cups)
    • read a philosophy book (swords)
    • eat a yummy big meal (pentacles)

  • (Optional) If you know Tarot, are there any cards that you particularly identify with in a personal way? What is the meaning of these cards to you?

I'll try and answer in 24 hours, unless it's create a spread, then it might take a couple of days. You can post a comment here or PM or email me~

Ooooh nice, I'm planning on running an experimental tarot journal tumblr in which I give free readings (one to three cards) for practice and posting it, is it ok if I link you?

Not doing paid readings, because I'm still an amateur, I don't even know all the meanings yet. -sweatdrops- I have to consult websites for meanings, and I also go off on intuition and card imagery.

I use this deck. http://www.aeclectic.net/tarot/cards/fantastical-creatures/

I love your painted spreads! Especially the alchemical one.

I just wanted to say how beautiful the layouts for these spreads are. I especially love the one for the Alchemical Transformation. You're very talented!

I know I'm a bit late, but would you be interested in a trade for a Tree of Energy reading? I can either give you a reading in return, or write you a story -- whether off a jumping-off point you provide, or whatever comes out of my brain.

Either way, your created spreads look really neat. <3

Awesome. <3 Take your time, whenever you get around to it is fine by me. And just let me know what it is you want. It's going to be a hectic week-or-so for me, but I will find time to do whatever it is.

As for the questions:

Focus: I associate strongly with water, the moon, the crab/Cancer (my astrological sign) -- I was born under a lot of water signs and 2s and I've always fit them. Also, the color blue, which is not only water for me but healing, and I used to do a lot of healing energy work. The number 13. Seashells. Pentacles. I can try to think of others if this isn't good for you.

And as would probably be obvious from that, I associate mainly with cups as a suit, though I feel like I've drifted a little closer to pentacles at some point -- but still, cups, overwhelmingly.

I can't think of any specific cards at the moment,. but if something comes to me I'll let you know.

Iiii would like a Tree of Energy and an Alchemical Transformation, if I may? I'm stuck in a lot of ways, feeling down, unconfident and depressed, and dry on creativity – though often that's rich on ideas, but dry on being able to bring them out into form of words. Wrapped up in a lot of emotional gunk I want to get rid of, from resentment to apathy to disappointment. I've lost contact with a lot of my headmates, and all I find is... not cotton muffling, but dry silence. I want to move to a place of inspiration and motion, producing and engaging and being happy and inspiring as well as being inspired. And caring for the people around me and feeling cared for and valued in return. (I have a feeling that getting out of my city would help, too, as winder is on the doorstep and I... go to sleep, in winter, in a lot of ways, and just feel and do nothing except for in stabs and spikes when something juts through.)

I'm more of a sword than anything. (Though if you listen to my body-astrological chart, I'm apparently full of water; though if you listen to my other body-astrological sign, I'm a fire tiger.)

Focuses? I identify with the term neutrois and with stray cats. I'm a stray cat in the house of Crow, and work, when I can hear him, with Raven. These were made for me: http://featherdust.critter.net/wildlifeindex/pages/Corvid%20Triptych%20-%20Digital.html . I come back to life in the spring and revel in the summer. This is the poem that makes me have faith: http://marecromwell.wordpress.com/2011/01/18/people-like-us-poem-by-robert-bly/ . I aspire to sensawunda. Here's one of the poems that evokes sensawunda in me: http://wonderingminstrels.blogspot.com/2003/03/last-poems-13-rabindranath-tagore.html . Here are the things I've written and had published: http://an.owomoyela.net/fiction/ . I've always had a big, aesthetic resonance with the worlds of Fallout: http://fallout.bethsoft.com/eng/art/fnv-screenshots1.php , and radiation is a sacred qualia to me, albeit one that terrifies me down to my bones. I like fine-tipped black pens and .05mm mechanical drafting pencils. I have a piece of fanfic where one character explains alien cultural conceptions to another:

Daniel elbowed her in the ribs. "Here. You want a more concrete example? One of the interesting things I found is that they have three specific terms for emotional reserve." He repositioned his glasses. "Let's see; there's tenallua, literally 'behind the teeth', which refers to someone who feels strong emotions but keeps them inside. Grits their teeth to them, so to speak. Then there's enda, which means that a person is likely to sit and think about their emotions rather than being eager to share them. I guess the closest English translation would be something like 'pensiveness.' And there's also mudaka, 'mastery' – it's still an internalization of emotion, but a person practicing mudaka will face their own emotions, come to understand them, and handle them however they see fit rather than repressing, analyzing or expressing them."

...and I'm right at home with enda and tenallua. I have a nobility complex, and I'm preoccupied with notions of worthiness. I want to be a spiritual teacher/resource/wise person, but I have so many doubts and so far to go. I'm an INTP. I'm asexual, and often say that power dynamics are my sex. I compose responses like this one when asked for a focus. :)

Hopefully with that information, you should be able to get a fantastic bead on me.

I'll mention my DW username in the Paypal payment.

*.5mm. .05mm would be tiny indeed.

Hello again! Would you be available to do another reading, possibly for a trade? I could definitely write something on a prompt you gave me.
