Flash Sale: Book of Mirrors Reading

21041779_144049726192317_647000045337444352_nPurchase a Book of Mirrors reading from me now through tomorrow (Thursday 8/24) and save 20% ($5) off the usual price–no coupon code needed!

Maybe you feel like there might be something missing from your practice but you just can’t put your finger on what it could be. OR maybe you just like to check in with your deities or with Spirit from time to time–via the cards–to make sure you’re still on the right path and getting all you can from your practice. Either way, this three card reading is for you!
As an example, here is a Book of Mirrors reading I did for myself today, using the Darkness of Light Tarot deck I have dedicated to my spirit Husband and reserved for consulting with Him. (Allow me to choose a deck from my collection that I feel will work best for your particular reading.) Since this reading is for me, I’m going to be sharing fewer details than I would normally share with a client; this is just a quick demonstration of how this particular reading works.
 
Card 1: What is the current state of my practice?
Temperance–Hovering on the edge of something transformational, but still afraid to commit fully to it, only sticking one foot in, hanging back. In a state of flux, still taking shape in the wake of dramatic changes.
 
Card 2: How can I maximize my progress?
Eight of Blades–Break out of my current mental rut, realize that the only constraints or limitations I have are the ones I am placing on myself.
 
Card 3: What pitfalls do I need to avoid that may hinder my growth?
Queen of Coins – Staying in my “bubble” too much, refusing to take risks or experiment, becoming stuck in my ways (as an earth sign, this is something I’m good at–I am definitely a Queen of Coins type!), becoming too comfortable with my routine.
 
Judging by this reading (which does resonate for me), I already know what things I need to do to deepen my practice; I just need to stop hesitating and do them already! 
 
What about you? If you’d like to schedule your own Book of Mirrors reading at the discounted price, act fast–the sale ends tomorrow at midnight (Thursday night/Friday morning).

New Reading Option in my shop

This is very similar to the two-card readings I offer as one of my monthly Patreon rewards: it’s a simple but effective two-card reading for helping you make a decision. Are you standing at a crossroads right now in some area of your life and not sure which path to take? Or are you facing a major decision and not sure whether to go ahead with it, or do nothing at all? Either way, this is the spread for you! It shows you the likely outcome of two separate options you’re considering, to help make it easier to decide. It can also help break down a single decision you’re facing, by showing the likely outcome if you make that decision and act on it, versus the outcome if you do nothing at all.

Card 1: What will likely happen if I choose option A? (OR, what is the likely outcome if I decide to do this one thing I’m considering and act on it ?)

Card 2: What will likely happen if I choose option B? (OR, what is the likely outcome if I do nothing at all?)

You can order this reading in my shop here, or browse the full selection of readings I’m currently offering here.

Since I’ve been enjoying doing the readings again, I’m also going to be widening the scope of the types of readings I offer in the shop. While I specialize in helping you sort out issues with deities and other spiritual matters, I am fully equipped to seek answers to your questions concerning most areas of life (love, career, relationships, personal development–everything except health and legal matters)–so next week I’ll be adding some additional spreads geared to some of these more mundane concerns.

In the meantime, you can use my Custom Spread option to delve into ANY issue you’d like more information or insight on; it’s a great spread in that you can choose anywhere from 3-6 cards (depending on how many aspects there are to your question and how deep you want to go), with the price varying accordingly.

I know I said I was going to keep my readings centered on spirit work only, but hey, I’m having fun doing readings and I changed my mind. Just remember that all of my readings are geared towards giving you input and advice from the deities, the spirits, your higher self, and the universe in general, to help you move forward in your personal/spiritual development as well as with your goals in life.  So whether the topic is mundane or spiritual, my reading style isn’t fortunetelling; I will never tell you what WILL happen or what you SHOULD do. I point out possibilities, but the power of choice always belongs to you.

Please ALSO note that I’ve lengthened my lead time for readings to 5-7 business days after purchase, simply because while I do love doing readings, I also need to make sure I have time to make more things for the shop, ship orders, do my own personal spiritual stuff, etc.

Advice from the Ancestors: A Tarot and Oracle Reading for Consulting with Your Forebears

New in the shop!

In modern paganism, many of us don’t put the same emphasis on consulting with or honoring our ancestors as we do on our relationships with the deities. However, indigenous pagan cultures did things the other way around: they knew it was their ancestors they could count on to watch their backs and give them sound advice and even assistance. Our ancestors (and I am including adopted ancestors here) have a vested interest in our success, because we are the living continuation of their legacy.

This five card reading is for consulting with either a particular ancestor of your choosing, or your ancestral heritage in general if you have no one specific individual in mind.

The reading addresses:

1. The main gift you inherited from your ancestor/s.

2. The main challenge/karmic hurdle they passed down to you.

3. Their hopes for you.

4. A healing message from them.

5. How you can best honor your heritage/their legacy.

You will receive an email with a downloadable pdf of your reading including a clear color photo of your spread. I will email your reading to you within 3-5 business days** of your purchase.

** Important: Please note that I do readings only on M – Th. I will schedule your reading on the next available “reading day,” and will usually let you know within 24 hours of your purchase when I expect to be reading for you.

When purchasing your reading, please include the following in your “note to seller”:

– Your name and email address.
– Any relevant details you can share about the ancestor you are asking about, if you have someone specific in mind.
– The general cultural/geographical background of your ancestry (if you know it) if you don’t have a specific individual in mind.
– Any background information about your spiritual path, practice, and history you would like me to keep in mind while reading.

ABOUT ME & MY APPROACH TO THE CARDS

Beginning in 2005 and continuing for about seven years, I undertook intensive training in oracular seidhr, otherwise known as Northern Tradition trance work and prophecy. This work is aimed not at predicting the future as such, but instead at propitiating and receiving input from the deities. As a result of this training (and my experiences providing this service to the community, which for the first few years I did at no charge), my own working definition of divination does not have to do with making psychic predictions or fortunetelling, or even with reading the cards as a method of “self help,” but instead concerns petitioning the Divine for input into our lives and our progress, especially in regard to spiritual and religious pursuits. If you are a “hard polytheist” to any degree, this would involve my seeking messages on your behalf from individual polytheist deities. If you are a pantheist, nontheist, or anything else along that end of the spectrum, it may involve helping you seek answers from, and communion with, the divine as it resides within you.

Despite whatever degree of deity input comes through in my intuitive reading of your cards, I hold firmly to the concepts of free will and personal choice. Whatever a deity may say, imply, or not say, I will not ever tell you what you “should” do or what “will” happen; all power of choice remains with you.

I read your cards in a ritual setting within my sacred space, often in a semi-trance state, taking notes by hand that I later type up to send to you. For this reason, the wordage length of your particular reading can vary. (Some messages and concepts require more words to communicate, others far fewer.)

POLICY AND ETHICS:

– Everything we discuss in connection with your reading is completely confidential and stays between us.

– I will not read for questions concerning health, legal matters, or any other issue that I deem better handled by a licensed professional.

– While I love feedback, I am unable to provide additional insight or clarity on readings for free. Please contact me to purchase a custom clarification reading if you feel more information is needed.

– I reserve the right to decline a reading and refund payment for any reason.

– I am unable to offer a refund for readings that do not deliver the outcome you expected or desired.

– I will not perform readings concerning the thoughts and feelings of a third person. (In this case, I mean specifically a human person other than yourself who has not consented to having their cards read.)

Readings are Back!

Tarot and oracle readings are once again available in my Etsy shop, but I am offering only a limited number of reading options, all of which are strictly deity and spirit oriented. (So, I’m not the reader for you if you want to know when you’ll be in a romantic relationship or if you’ll get a raise.)

ALSO, I fully reserve the right to pull any or all of them from the shop periodically whenever I (or They) feel that I need a break. 🙂

Here’s what’s available now:

deity id

This six card reading is the one to pick if you suspect a deity is lurking around, trying to make inroads into your life, but you aren’t quite sure exactly WHO They are. In addition to my interpretation of your cards, I will also provide you with a short list of deity names who I see as the “best matches” for the evidence supplied by the reading. This will give you some places to begin your research, and from there you should be able to put together the clues and find your answer.

(If you already know who you’re dealing with–or have a pretty good idea–and you want to know more about what you can expect from the relationship, OR you need to sort out some issues with a deity you’re been working with for a while, choose my Deity Communication spread instead.)

The reading addresses:

1. What culture, pantheon, or part of the world your deity is from. (I use my own custom-designed deck for this part of the reading.)

2. A trait associated with this deity that most people find challenging or intimidating.

3. A trait associated with this deity that is generally regarded as appealing or beneficent.

4. The deity’s sphere of power in the human world.

5. An animal or symbol associated with this deity.

6. Omens and signs to look for that point towards the deity’s presence.

deity communication

This six card reading is for taking a look at where you stand with a deity you’ve just started working with, or checking in with a more familiar deity to make sure the relationship and your work together are still on track. (If you’re dealing with a new deity in your life and you have no idea who they are, you may want to try my Deity ID spread first to get some clues to their identity, and then move on to this one if you need more information.)

Sometimes when a new deity shows up in our lives we aren’t quite clear on their identity, or if we know who they are we might wonder why they’re around, what they want from us, and what the relationship will bring to our spiritual path. OR, we can know a deity for years but suddenly feel out of touch, and wonder if we’re still making progress on our path with them. This reading is designed to address all these questions. It will help you sort through any confusion you might be experiencing, reveal the major lessons and challenges the deity wants you to take on, and offer constructive advice and clarity regarding how to proceed on your devotional path.

The reading addresses:

1. Which aspect of the deity you are dealing with currently.

2. What the nature of your relationship with them will be.

3. What they want from you.

4. How you can best accomplish this.

5. What you need to understand or accept about this deity for the most constructive and positive relationship.

6. What you need to avoid doing to stay on good terms with this deity.

spirit guide

This five card reading is for you if you suspect you have a spirit guide looking over your shoulder but you’d like to know more about them so you can work with them more productively, OR if you’d really like a spirit guide and are hoping someone will step forward to work with you. (This reading will help you figure out who might be out there for you and how you can get in touch with them.)

The reading addresses:

1. Who is this spirit? (traits/personality, etc.)

2. What are you here to teach me?

3. How can I be more open to receiving your guidance?

4. What are your spheres of influence? (What kind of help are you best at giving?)

5. What will be the outcome of our relationship?

bookofmirrors

Maybe you feel like there might be something missing from your practice but you just can’t put your finger on what it could be. OR maybe you just like to check in with your deities or with Spirit from time to time–via the cards–to make sure you’re still on the right path and getting all you can from your practice. Either way, this three card reading is for you!

The reading addresses:

1. What is the current state of my practice?

2. How can I maximize my progress?

3. What pitfalls do I need to avoid that may hinder my growth?

message

Sometimes all we really need is a signpost to show us we’re still going along the right path, a little nugget of encouragement or validation, or, conversely, a gentle kick in the pants to turn us around and get us straightened up if we’ve wandered off the path. This one card reading offers a short and sweet message from the spirit world especially for you.

With any of the above reading options, you will receive an email with a downloadable pdf of your reading including a clear color photo of your spread. I will email your reading to you within 3-5 business days of your purchase. (I only do readings M – F.)
