  • One thing that people probably don't expect from me is that I dabble in multiple forms of divination. I came into it for less than pure of reasons. When I was in high school, a fellow student working behind the scenes of a play I was in had his own Tarot deck. People were fascinated. He said the first reading was free, the second was a dollar. He was making a killing. I figured I could do that too, and picked up my own deck shortly after.

    Confirmation bias, contrary to popular belief, is exactly why I think Tarot and divination is helpful. People want to see it work. They want accurate readings, so they search for how something could apply to them, even if it's indirect. By nature of how divination is done (be it tea leaves, crystals, runes, or tarot) it causes problems the querent may have to be taken, processed, and presented in a way that may be brand new. It helps churn up new perspectives, or think about something fresh. In this way, I like to think I have helped a lot of people. I now hold a personal relationship with the deck I bought with the intent of making some side cash. I purchased three Tarot Decks and currently own two (I gave one to a friend so he could learn,) a bag of Elder Futhark Runes carved into amethyst chips, and a box of crystals. I plan on making my own wiccan witch runes in the future!
