Book Corner: 365 Tarot Spreads

365 Tarot Spreads cover

Book: 365 Tarot Spreads
Author: Sasha Graham
Date of Publication: May 2014
Published by: Trade Paperback, Llewellyn Worldwide

There’s a lot of reasons why Sasha Graham is one of my tarot girl crushes. Every year when I show up at Readers Studio, she’s usually the one screaming, “My witches are here!!!” followed by a big hug. When I taught my class “Using Tarot for Spell-Work” at RS13, she was my TA, and her first book Tarot Diva was on my Recommended Reading list for my class. She’s a fun, bubbly, effervescent soul who is also completely down to earth and approachable… a hard combination to pull off with authenticity (but she succeeds!).

Tarot Diva (her first book, published in 2011) was a fun romp through the land of (what else?) being a tarot diva, full of great information and geared toward those that may not be familiar with tarot… in my opinion, it was a intermediate/advanced book about tarot, archetypes, magick, spirituality, and integration, disguised as a beginner book for the masses!

In her second book, 365 Tarot Spreads, she takes all of her sparkling personality and interweaves it into a day-by-day (yes, all 365 of them, based on the calendar year) spread odyssey. Continue Reading

Tarot Reader, Tarot Reader, Where Does Your Money Go?

Read This If You Have the Expectation That Metaphysical People Shouldn’t Charge

Read This If You Have the Expectation That Metaphysical People Shouldn’t Charge

Back in 2013, I attended Readers Studio, which is a yearly occurrence and one of my mandatory yearly conferences as an attendee. The conversation became heated during a Breakfast Roundtable moderated by Theresa Reed in which that age-old debate came up: the assertion that spiritual or metaphysical people shouldn’t be charging for their services. Beth Owl’s Daughter calls this phenomena the “purple-collar ghetto”.

I’ve come to realize that even after almost ten years as a professional tarot reader that the concept of the purple ghetto is still alive and well, and is propagated by tarot readers and non-readers alike… which I find stunning. Language such as bartering, sliding scale, discounts, spiritual calling. Guilt trips from OTHER readers for those that charge for readings, in a “how could you turn away someone that NEEDS your help with a reading?” tone. [An aside: a tarot reading is a want, not a need… which I’ll cover in an upcoming post.]Continue Reading
