I am here for you. 100%. I will answer questions about readings, I will give you a free one card on Saturdays, I will help you interpret a card or two, I am here to help. That is why I am here.

With all the negativity being spread around our community today, we could use some positive reminders about what we do and why we ALL love it.

Help me add to this!

Good things about being a Tarot reader:

-Helping people!

- making connections

- Does making friends count as making connections?
- getting the opportunity to inspire & uplift people in readings

Let’s show support to the Tumblr divination community! Those with donation buttons, seasoned professional readers, the newbies, those contemplating getting a Tarot deck, those with more than a hundred, those who consider themselves fortune tellers, psychics, just Tarot readers, divinatory healers, cartomancers, pendulum weavers, rune throwers, and everything in between.

There is no authority on Tarot and I do not like this hierarchy of “I’ve been reading longer so my word is God” bullshit. If someone wants their blog to have this cult following and have this mentality that they are some sort of Tarot Guru, that is their business, but that is not what I personally believe learning, experiencing, sharing and teaching Tarot is all about. I Anyone who follows any divination blog, just know that the owner of that blog is not and should never be the authority of you or how you use your tools, YOU ARE YOUR OWN AUTHORITY! When it comes to divination, cost does not equal quality. Just because someone asks for donations or have donation buttons does not lessen experience, knowledge and work ethic.

do not send me any more Lisa hate.

I won’t publish anything else. If you want to say something, keep it respectful.

(Yeah, I probably shouldn’t have posted the other stuff. I’m sorry. I am not all-knowing and wise and sometimes I’m just shocked by what people will say and didn’t want to be the only one who saw them.)

Lisa Lloyd is a brat and I bet you anything she's developed this hypocritical scheme to boost traffic to her website. She has a reputation for being a drama queen and starting problems for website traffic. She's also buddy buddy with Janet Boyer, which is why some people choose not to associate with Lisa at all.

deviantreader:

I get that you aren’t happy with her but I don’t think bashing her and telling OTHERS to bash her makes you look very good. I really like your blog but I don’t like all the negativity coming out of it lately

Sorry, I wasn’t trying to communicate that it was cool to do stuff like this. I mean, I did say this earlier today. I just didn’t know how else to show someone I was talking to what I was getting.

Unfollow if you want, I don’t care. It doesn’t hurt my feelings.

Opinions = hate?

queenofchalices:

deviantreader:

tarotismyreligion:

So it’s okay to make a post that basically says folks who are donation based readers are scam artists and give tarot a bad name, and say that’s fine because it’s your opinion… But when other people share their opinion about your opinion, that’s hate???

Anyone else confused? Gah.

That wasn’t even what she was trying to say. She was really more concerned specifically on the people who said they wanted donations for tarot readings because they needed the money.

She was Genuinely concerned about the image and integrity of tarot readers.

Is that what it sounded like she was saying? No… It sounded WAY meaner. But in the heat of the moment people say things that aren’t quite true to what they feel…

I hope you’ll understand that she doesn’t actually have anything against donations to tarot readers. Just beggars.

I think Lisa can speak for herself. If she wanted to clarify, she could have. There were several opportunities.
Let’s not forget that she also said “you get what you pay for” which implies that any lower priced reading, no matter if the request for payment was motivated by dire need, or just an acknowledgment that readings take time and energy and deserve compensation, would be low quality readings.
I know you’re trying to keep the peace here, and I TOTALLY respect that. But forgive me for not accepting your interpretation of her original intent.

yeah, I’m sorry but I’m not buying that either. From what I’ve seen, she is extremely selective about how she approaches things. When others have been responding to her posts, asking questions and attempting to get their information, she is incredibly brief and doesn’t explain much of anything.

If she can go and make a post about ‘haters going to hate’ and ‘I don’t want people like that on my blog anyway’, oh and then the comment about how she’s been doing this since before most of us had periods and she’ll be doing it well after she hits menopause… she has every ability to explain the misunderstanding on her post and is simply choosing not to. (Ironically she got angry with me earlier because I was 'throwing my weight around' because I’ve been on tumblr longer, but it’s cool for her to throw her tarot weight around because she’s been reading tarot longer.)

*shrugs* she’s going to do whatever she wants, and I don’t have a problem with that. But I’m also not going to act like that kind of stuff is okay.
