Who would have thought...

I am as of Friday a Fully Professional Tarot Reader. :D *beams*

I have been workign towards this for a very long time (five years) and it is great news. I am proud of myself.

The pay is fairly crap, as we get paid per reading and the store keeps more than half but any money is better than no money and it is a very famous place so it gets LOTS of clients. Work expereince-wise it is wonderful and I get paid in cash.

It is WEIRD to be working there. Good weird, but still bizzarre. Strange seeing Neil there too. WHich is strange for him as well seeing me.

It is a great opportunity and even my kin has come around to not freaking out about it as much. I am doing something that I love and I am building a reputation and getting lots of practice.

I still get really nervous and have to remind myself that I HAVE read cards before, that I know how to do this, that I am not a complete novice or idiot. It is a bit freaky having the clients give their impressions to the bosses after reading (I am still on trial) so far they have all been pleased (even though for one of them I think i mumbled total waffle).

Favourite clients:

Heartbroken women and any relationship question. People undergoing family rifts or major psychological transitions. All of them are wonderful material.

Least favourite cleints:

Married and bored rich women.

Least favourite question:

Am I going to get married soon?

Fantasised answer to this:

No actually. I am afraid not. In fact, it is funny you should ask, because I feel that you are going to be really miserable for the rest of your lfie. It says it right here in the cards. Unlucky.

Hee hee. The customers would be *most* displeased about that.

So, supposing you see something negative-- do you tell them? Or do you only tell them the good stuff?

Totally intrigued....

I am rising to new avenues of tactfulness ;)

Seeing negativity- it's a good question. I would want to talk about it yes, because I view warning people as part of my job but I would want to do it in empowering terms so they can do soemthing about it.
I try to do only that which I think serves the client, what is in thier best long term interest, and if I told them only the good stuff I don't think I'd be doing them any favours really.

eg. I get a feeling that someone is going to do really badly on thier course. so instead of saying *you will flunk! you are doomed!* i would put in in terms of *i feel that the outcome of your course is uncertain at this point in time and my advice is to work hard and apply yourself in studying, i have a feeling that you really can't afford to mess about*.

and so on.
I am wary of self-fulfilling prophecies that usually come about when you implant a suggestion in someone's mind which they end up acting out.

i am careful to try and put everything into as positive context as possible and generally I don't pick up much stuff which is *hopeless*. A few time death has come up in the cards but this was for people who were aware of it, knew it was happening and the reading was geared towards helping them find peace with this.

although i did a reading a couple of years ago for a fairly unpleasant guy who was giving me a really hard time. I was trying to tell him of upcoming upheaval in his professional life, he was more or less claiming this was pure bullshit, and when I met him about 4 months afterwards I found out he had been fired from his job. So I had a few moments *Ha! Now who are you calling a charlatan!* although I tried hard not to gloat on the grounds that it was unprofessional.
