About a week ago, I had a slightly bonkers idea that I wanted to do 100 tarot readings.
In the next two-and-a-half months.
I am nothing if not dedicated when I get something into my head.
This project, of course, was on top of completing my coaching certification, working with my existing clients, and my current day job.
But even so, I can’t tell you what a joy it has been to do the ten readings I have over the past week.
First of all, I am still blown away by the response. I thought I might get a few people liking my post on Facebook and maybe saying “good for you.” I did not at all expect to have Skype chats both with total strangers as well as friends from overseas I hadn’t talked to in ages. It’s honestly as much an excuse to have a love fest with a bunch of cool people as it is a way to share tarot with all of you.
I have learned some things even beyond this… one is that despite my seemingly wide interests, it all comes back to reading. Whether I’m reading tarot or reading books, it’s all about reading over here at the Book Dr. And you can bet my clients get book recommendations. I have to share the reading love.
Other tidbits and insights: there is no way I could have gotten the insights I have already had if I were only reading for myself. I do read for myself very regularly- I pull a card daily and usually do something longer about once a week or as the mood and life strike me. But the weird thing about tarot is that when I read for myself, I get a lot of the same cards. I’m still me, with the same issues and the same hangups.
As I’ve been reading for others, I have gotten new cards. I’ve also pulled cards that opened up the meaning of the card in ways I couldn’t have expected. My personal favorite so far? Pulling the Chariot as “something to let go of” in a spread about finances. As I shared about the charging energy of the card, my client and I had the same aha at the same moment- let go of using charge cards! I’m still smiling about that one.
And even beyond all of this, the most beautiful thing is the warm welcome and enthusiasm I have felt from the community as I’ve jumped on Skype and seen a new face- often that of a total stranger- and then, at the end of 30 minutes, I sign off feeling like I’ve made a new friend and that the Book Dr. world has gotten a little bit cozier and a little bit more intimate.
I’m so grateful to everyone who has let me read for them so far… I can’t wait to find out what I learn over the next 90 readings to come.
If you’re interested in being one of the 90, sign up for a Skype reading over here on my 100 readings page. I can’t wait to meet you and see what we learn!
xxx to all,
