Does this tarot reader still “got it”?


The hostess took me by the hand and dragged me into the living room full of nicely dressed strangers.

“Can I have everyone’s attention? I’d like to introduce somebody. This is Hilary, and she’s here to do something special.” She looked at me expectantly, and I realized that was when it was time to give my normal spiel. Apparently, having a tarot reader there to do readings was a surprise to the guests!

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
