Not thrilled with what you’re offering? Neither are your clients

 

I spent most of last month not only being physically sick, but sick of myself. An excerpt from last month’s newsletter particularly irked me:

I also see a Wheel of Fortune year as trying new things and having new adventures… being open to experimentation and to some degree, risk. In that spirit, I have been working on creating a customized PDF report of a yearly overview. It’s currently in beta-testing at the moment, but I’ve created a sample reading based upon the Cards of the Month from each monthly newsletter from 2016. It’s a modification of the Clock Spread I did eons ago for one of the Tarot Apprentice challenges… then I realized that Kim Krans, creator of The Wild Unknown everything, included a near identical spread as a part of her wonderful Spirit Cloth! Click on the link and check it out: 13 Moons Sample. If this is something that interests you, please let me know by sending me an email, Subj. Line: Interested in Yearly Overview. Based on interest, I may make them available to a limited number of people, because boy, they are intense and time-consuming to do!

YAWN. Even I’M bored with what I wrote! Yes, really. I blasted out the newsletter January 1st, leading with a sample reading of a new yearly forecast.

Fair warning: I HATE forecasting via tarot. Predictive tarot readings just aren’t my style. Predictions DO happen within my readings, yes, but they are not the backbone of them: they are an added bonus, an extra shot of espresso, gratis, or a super-big dollop of whipped cream on top of your white chocolate mocha. The predictions are not why people seek me out for readings. In my opinion, people come to me for my no BS delivery, sans sugar-coating or babying. NOT for the rare moments of outright prediction.

So…. why the hell would I offer something that is solely predictive? Your guess is as good as mine. Continue Reading

I just like to be alone… what is the Hermit card really about?

Going within and just being left alone with your thoughts is something that seems trite or too simple to be truly wisdom. The Hermit tells us that the best of way of knowing ourselves and our inner truths is to be by ourselves and retreat from the noise of the outer world to hear what’s within.
