With the current state of things, I'm feeling more need for insight and inspiration than usual, and I'm thinking my friends might also be feeling the same. So I'm going to try to schedule card readings more often this year, hopefully at least once a month at either the full moon or the new (or possibly both). I'm also thinking I may be able to use this card draw for my own inspiration (see below).

It's a New Moon this evening, so I figure I'll offer to draw cards. I hope to send some good energy out into the world, to spark some hope and creativity. You can ask about real life or a creative project, or even a game. I can draw a card for you to meditate on, to represent the Guide you need right now, or to get you unstuck. I can draw a card for a character or can draw a card or cards for you to use as writing or art prompts--starting something new is a traditional use of New Moon energy. But ask what you will, because now is always transforming into a new moment.

I hope you will stop by my garden. It's windy outside today; the snow is all gone, and everything is still winter-grey. But we can move one of the little round tables into the library and sit under the wood carving of dragons playing. The guitar tree is in a corner, the there guitars each have a little tube stuck between the strings. If you ask, I explain that those are guitar humidifiers, to keep the wood supple. You and I can share hot chocolate or tea and chat, and you can get a reading if you would like one. Both new friends and old are welcome.

For free one card readings, you can pick from the Brian Froud's Faeries Oracle, my combined Susan Seddon Boulet Animal Spirits and Goddesses cards, or the Shapeshifter Tarot. You can ask a question, ask for a Guide, ask for inspiration, or you can just ask for a card. I don't need to know what your question is, but you are welcome to share it with me if you like.

The first card is free (though tips are always appreciated). Tips also let you ask me to use any of my other decks, to request a private reading, or to draw a clarifying card. If you want a longer reading, send a direct message so we can agree on the type of reading and rate.

Please consider dropping something in the guitar case below. Readings take time and energy, and even though the Milwaukee winter, like everything else, has been affected by global warming, winter heat is pricey and old houses always need repair somewhere or other.

Signal boosts are very much appreciated, and also earn you the right to ask for a clarifying card.

Today I'm trying a new thing--if donations reach $50 or more, I will use one or more of the cards drawn today as inspiration for a new acrylic sketch/painting, which I will share here, so you can all see how you inspire me.

I'll periodically update progress on that goal here (on DW, the edits may or may not transfer over to LJ, I guess that's also an experiment). So far, I have received $12 of the $50 needed to prompt a sketch/painting. If we go over that amount, I will put more time into moving the painting onward from the sketch stage.

I understand all too well that when people don't have cash or spoons that is generally when they most need inspiration! Don't be afraid to ask for a card if you can't tip.

If you tip, it's helpful to me for you to mention it here so I can connect your paypal information with your request. Tips should be at least $1 (Paypal charges fees). If that doesn't work for you, drop me a message and we'll work something out.

I've written before about why I do readings and some of the decks I use here, feel free to hop over and check me out. I'll wait.

I will reply to all requests. In the highly unlikely event that the number of requests nears my limits, I'll close this card draw by adding a clear note at the top of the post rather than risk leaving anyone without a response. However, I intend to stay open at least through Saturday night, and longer for paid readings since in these days of low LJ usage, people may find the post late.

Thank you, and Blessed Be!

As always, these readings are for entertainment and inspiration only. See my "Dandelyon's Readings" page if you have questions.

I'll go in again, although the answer I got from your last reading still very much applies, and thank you for it! I'd like a card, please. Your choice of decks.

For questions... I seem to be a little less stuck as far as writing goes, but the emotional snarl-up of a few weeks ago is still a thing, if to a little bit lesser degree. If somebody friendly out there has anything more to say on the subject of getting/keeping words flowing, emotional healing, or both, I'm open to it. Part of me wonders if I'm not insulting somebody or other for essentially asking the same question twice; I haven't disregarded previous good advice, it's just proving harder to implement than I'd like. To avoid insulting friendly somebodys: Previous advice helps, now how do I continue from where I started with same?

Whoops, wordy!

First, thank you! I'm terribly slow in replying, my apologies. I first read this while on a city bus this afternoon, got to the detail of three cards leaping out together almost as one, thought 'three is sacred' and said "Oh frak!" out loud, loudly, in public. For info: My brain tends to loop and get stuck at times, known feature/bug depending on situation, and that first reference... is relevant to my being stuck now. If you don't recognize it, suffice it to say it's super nerdy.

Second: Oh goodness. All three of these cards seem extremely accurate at the moment. I'm... not entirely sure how to act on what I've been shown, but that second faerie, the Rarr/Razz (?) sounds like my mental state lately re: writing. Idea snippets leaping out all over, then fizzling, and repeat. Oof! As for the Ffooter - yep, I am actively in search of a grounding influence. This is spot on. And that particular singer... She's arguably the hardest to take in, at the moment. Not that I'll ignore her, no way, not with three cards jumping out as one, just that her advice is going to be the most difficult/flipping terrifying to implement.

This is rather scarily accurate, frankly. True though that is, thank you!

Thank you for doing this! The last card you drew for me has been very helpful.

Today I'd like a card to help me answer the question of which of my current creative projects I should be focusing more energy on.

Hmm. Perhaps I do. Thank you!

I feel the same way about typos ;)
