So I make the disclaimer that this is for entertainment purposes only, and that I am not a professional capable of giving legal, medical, or financial advice.

However. I have come to the understanding that divination is a sacred task, not a toy. Do ut des: to get, one must give.

This post will be open to receive querents until Thu Jul 21, and all requested readings will be done no later than Sun Jul 24 is CLOSED.

I am offering:

* a one-card reading from the Motherpeace Tarot deck, in exchange for the querent posting a link to this post
* a one-disc drawing from my copper Greek alphabet oracle set, in exchange for the querent posting a link to this post
* a three-card past-present-future reading from the Motherpeace Tarot deck, in exchange for 5 USD
* a reading using the Motherpeace Tarot and a spread selected from Tarot Spreads of the Greek Gods in consultation with the querent (see below), in exchange for 10 USD

I shall not be monitoring who actually links this post anywhere. Part honor system of payment, part honoring the above statement that this is for entertainment purposes only. For those of you who are paying in cash, paypal.me.

Donations currently stand at 5 USD as of one am Mon Jul 18. All donations, up to 85 USD, will be directed to the Alex Didn't Want To Touch That Savings Account But Meds Are Expensive fund. Beyond that amount, to the Alex Needs Out Of Debt fund.

For every 50 USD mark donations pass, I will give to a randomly selected commenter a reading using a spread from Tony Whitman and Jessica Tiderman's Tarot Spreads of the Greek Gods. There are twenty-nine such spreads, varying from five to sixteen cards; I will discuss via PM or email with the randomly chosen winner of each such reading which spread best suits the question being asked.

Anonymous comments are screened and will remain so unless you say in the comment to unscreen it. If you want your card by PM instead of in a comment, tell me; if you want it by email instead of in a comment, I'll need your email.

Please be advised that due to shenanigans at home, responses will not be prompt. My plan (Jul 7) is to do as many draws tonight after paycheck work as are requested today, relay the results as soon as I'm back on the Internet tomorrow, and repeat if more draws are requested tomorrow. (ETA Jul 8: I dramatically underestimated how much disability silverware I would have after working one to midnight! I apologize for the delay. Thank you to those of you who have donated thus far!) (ETA Jul 9, noon: I have done all the spreads except one three-card, for which I don't believe I've gotten a question though the Paypal comments said one was forthcoming, and the now-six ten-card spreads. I will figure out who won the donations-passed-$50 spread Soon.) If I owe you a ten-card spread (you four know who you are), it is coming in the next couple days.

*draws self a tarot card*

Four of Wands, reversed. Apparently I am working too hard. GEE I HAD NO IDEA. I opened this deck two days ago how is it already snarking me.

Speaking of which, I need to go shower so I can go overtime.

I am offering one-card draws for free, one free draw per customer, limited to the Motherpeace Tarot deck. I wanted a feminist tarot deck and Vogel and Noble's Motherpeace Tarot was one of the first search results, and it has intriguing differences from the Rider-Waite that I'd like to explore as I get to know this deck.

I am also offering a second free draw (one card) to anyone who links me to their post advertising this, a three-card past-present-future spread to anyone who donates $3 via Paypal to alexconall at gmail, and a Celtic Cross ten-card spread to anyone who donates $10. Donations currently stand at $50.

Donations have passed $20, so everyone gets a free bonus card and I get to buy The Copyright Thing Doesn't Work Here: Adinkra and Kente Cloth and Intellectual Property in Ghana, which I want for research for an article I'm writing about copyright and feminism. Donations have passed $50, so I am giving away a third Celtic Cross reading in addition to the two from the semi-anonymous $25 donation, and I get to buy A Parcel of Steeleye Span. Five folk-rock albums for the price of one! Work is ever so much easier with music, and folk music keeps inspiring me to write.

Thank you to the awesome people who have donated thus far! If donations pass $75 by Sunday 12th, I will, no later than Sunday 19th, start my post series on [personal profile] alexconall going through the tarot card by card. I haven't decided yet whether to go through the deck in an organized manner or in a randomly drawn order (no repeats though); feel free to voice an opinion! (From here out, money raised from this week's tarot draw goes toward debt. This is unexciting, but when I am out of debt I want to buy this lyre and harp duet set and learn how to play.)

Thanks to someone who donated $25 with instructions to do readings for other people, I am giving away two three Celtic Cross readings and two past-present-future spreads to random.org-selected people who ask for cards on this post. I will poke random.org on Sunday to see who gets the readings.

You'd think by now I'd be used to the sensation of drawing myself a tarot card and observing that the traditional meaning of the card is the same shit I've been telling myself. Like, just now it's the Nine of Rods. Perseverance. Keeping on by strength of will, despite it all. Thanks, world, I know that already.

...I'm not doing well at doing this, mind. But I do know I need to.
alexseanchai: Blue and purple lightning (tarot Queen of Swords)
I am offering one-card draws for free, one free draw per customer, either the Pocket Goddess Tarot or the Hanson-Roberts. The Hanson-Roberts is basically the Rider-Waite; the Pocket Goddess deck, though based on Rider-Waite, has Prince, Princess, King, and Queen instead of Page, Knight, Queen, and King, and there is considerable difference in the major arcana; for example, card XV is not the Devil but Temptation, and the card has the likeness of Nyai Loro Kidul.

I am also offering a second free draw (one card) to anyone who links me to their post advertising this, a three-card past-present-future spread to anyone who donates $3 via Paypal to alexconall at gmail or via my GoFundMe, and a Celtic Cross ten-card spread to anyone who donates $10. If donations reach $30, everybody gets another card for free; donations currently stand at $0.

The Goddess Guidance Oracle Cards are less tarot-like, being forty-four cards each with a goddess and a piece of advice that goddess might give. (To be honest I'm not sure how that deck will work in a spread, but I'm willing to give it a try if you are.)

I am offering one-card draws for free, one free draw per customer, Hanson-Roberts or Pocket Goddess Tarot.

When you ask for a card, either tell me that you're looking for a reading or leave a prompt of up to five words. If you want a reading, this works like the usual one-card draw: I tell you the card and interpret for you, and it's up to you to figure out how it applies. If you leave a prompt, you get a hundred-ish-word story inspired by the prompt and the card.

Anyone who links me to a post advertising this gets another free card, same rules.

A donation of 2 USD gets you a three-card past-present-future reading. A donation of 5 USD gets you a ten-card Celtic Cross reading. Alternately, for each dollar you donate, I'll write another hundred words to your initial prompt.

Anonymous comments are screened as always, but all the stories will be publicly visible.

ETA: If you donate, please tell me who from and what for.







The free draw is CLOSED. If whoever left that donation—thank you, by the way—wants to identify themselves, though...

Here's the catch. Inspired by [personal profile] sharpeningthebones (who looks to still be open), instead of the standard 'draw a card, interpret a card' with more cards if you tip the fortuneteller, when you ask for a card, leave a prompt of up to five words. I will take the card and the prompt and write you a story of about a hundred words.

I am not putting up prices for more in-depth efforts today, but tips are always appreciated.

I am offering one-card draws for free, one free draw per customer, and for this draw I am expanding my horizons to offer the Pocket Goddess Tarot as well as the Hanson-Roberts. The Hanson-Roberts is basically the Rider-Waite; the Pocket Goddess deck, though based on Rider-Waite, has Prince, Princess, King, and Queen instead of Page, Knight, Queen, and King, and there is considerable difference in the major arcana; for example, card XV is not the Devil but Temptation, and the card has the likeness of Nyai Loro Kidul.

I am offering one-card draws for free, one free draw per customer, and I am sticking to my Hanson-Roberts deck—it's essentially the Rider-Waite except the art is prettier; that's the Hanson-Roberts Queen of Swords in my icon, and yes, sadly, all the people in the deck are white. I am also offering a second free draw (one card) to anyone who links me to their post advertising this, a three-card past-present-future spread to anyone who donates 2 USD via my Paypal button below, and a Celtic Cross ten-card spread to anyone who donates 5 USD.

Since I am fairly new to doing this for other people, I am offering both one-card draws and three-card past-present-future draws for free, one free draw per customer, and I am sticking to my Hanson-Roberts deck—it's essentially the Rider-Waite except the art is prettier; that's the Hanson-Roberts Queen of Swords in my icon, and yes, sadly, all the people in the deck are white.
