These cards, who I have named Color Voices, speak to me. I'd always thought that tarot worked by simply pouring your energy in and allowing it to draw you to the cards that you subconsciously know are the right ones (because I believe in a universal consciousness); it had never really occurred to me that simple printed images could radiate their own energy in a way that made them feel like people. (or maybe it never occurred to me that I could feel them that way -- certainly others had expressed that, though not in so many words) But these cards? I can feel their presence like a person in the room! And the artwork on them could hardly be more 'me' if someone had created it with me in mind. They are so, SO beautiful. I feel like meeting them is a really important turning point for me.
I did a reading (my very first ever) for Aurilion that night (which was spot on) and a few days later did a reading for my partner, which was startlingly accurate. Then I tried doing readings for myself and they were meaningless, which I found really discouraging. But I got the impression that I simply need to practice 'attuning' myself to the cards (and I think it is harder to read for oneself).
So I wanted to ask a favor from my flist. ;-) Would you be willing for me to do a short reading for you and then post it here (public) with a photo of the cards? If you want, I can do it anonymously, and I'll screen comments to make that possible. Just PLEASE, do not expect me to be accurate or even meaningful to you -- I might be, but I don't have any practice or knowledge about this, so I could just as easily produce a confused mess.
I'm hoping to get this finished before 1am Friday so it can be my art-sharing post for the week ;-) (One of my goals this year is to become more comfortable with deadlines and time-structure, eek)
ETA: yay, finished with mermaiden and c_a_turbulence's readings! six more to go!
