It’s time for #tarotthursdaythree! This writing challenge/invitation is hosted by Julia of SpiralSeaTarot.com. The questions for this day were provided by Vanessa, check out her post here.
1. What was your first time like giving an in-person reading? Where were you? How did you feel? Spill the deets!
The first time I gave an in-person reading was to my hubby, and I had just started reading so I was using the guidebook more than my intuition. It was not so bad because well he’s my husband. I have never read in-person for a “client”, although I have started doing readings via audio recordings. I do hope to one day read in-person. I imagine I will be very nervous for a while, until I get comfortable. I think it’s a completely different experience and dynamic, so I do look forward to doing that in the future.
2. Have you ever had a negative client response to one of your readings? How did they react and why? How did you respond back?
I’ve never had a negative response… but I have had no response at all, which kind of feels like a negative response. If I had a negative response I would probably apologize, maybe refund if they asked for a refund. Then I might even reconsider reading for others :(, which means I need to prepare for a negative response and I look forward to reading how others handle them.
3. Have you ever been challenged by a skeptic regarding tarot? What was your experience like?
I have talked to many people who are skeptics about tarot, and people who think that card reading is evil. Anytime I talk to someone about card reading I tell them that I don’t do fortune telling, so I don’t read the future. I explain to them that the cards have archetypes and themes that can help provide guidance about situations in our lives. I’ve never met anyone who openly challenged me, most people, if they disagree, they don’t bring it up any more and neither do I.
