but… does anyone know the deal with Janet Boyer? like why a bunch of tarot readers don’t associate with her/why there would be an unofficial protest of her as indicated in her radio show here?

I can’t even answer this in the space provided. Some of it is because…

wow, that was fast. thank you for your honesty :) the only thing I remember hearing about her was that she got really upset when the greek guy Angelo something (I honestly can’t remember how to spell his name) was awarded Tarosophist of the year because she made a nasty comment on Twitter about it. so it’s nice to hear from someone else who’s not directly involved with her, who’s noticed some of this stuff.

I feel so torn on this, but I listened to a little bit of the radio show that got yanked from BTR and it made me want to puke. Repeatedly. gah.

I ran a Google search of her name, and apparently she had an online beef with someone else known in the Tarot community, wrote a graphic murder fantasy fic about that person (without changing the other person’s name), and posted it online.

One account of what happened: http://violettekitty.blogspot.com/2011/12/janet-boyer-situation.html

omfg. omfg. OH MY FUCKING GOD.

no fucking wonder no one at Tarot Professional wanted her there. omfg.

I would still like to see a copy of that book she supposedly published but omfg. I was literally just writing a response to Queen of Chalices where I basically was trying to say either Tarot Professionals IS supremely unprofessional and unethical… or she did something seriously effed up to deserve that and oMG I am so disturbed right now

tarotpriestess:

Mercury is officially in retrograde! Fellow Tarot readers, let’s be sure make the best of what this period has to offer:

1. Think about your words, and take a little extra time to determine exactly what kind of messages are coming through. You might struggle to communicate what you really intend to say, or you may have trouble verbalizing what you see. I personally like to have a pen and paper out when I read; when I scribble down my initial reactions I can more easily synthesize and communicate them to my client.

2. There may be issues with dates, times, and appointments. Double check every appointment and expect delays!

3. Things from the past will need to be reopened in order to be fully closed. This means your clients may need to have readings that seem excessively focused on a past event. Recognize this as part of a healing process.

Mercury will be in retrograde until Feb 28! If you are like me, you have already been feeling the effects of the transition (sigh). If you are interested in learning more about mercury in retrograde, there are some truly fantastic and interesting pieces about it on the internet.

*BEEP BEEP BEEP* RED ALERT

REPEAT THIS IS A RED ALERT

I hate it when I pull ‘negative’ cards for ‘positive’ positions

How do you interpret when that thing happens?

I mostly glare at them until they turn positive. jk

for reals though, it requires me to take a BIG step back on the reading and kind of dig back into my gut for what turns up there. And sometimes I don’t get it right away. Every year I use a 6 card spread to help me prepare for the new year, and the first year I used it, I got the 3 of Swords as my ‘good’ thing for the year ahead. Part of me knows that while the 3 of Swords is a sad card, it’s still a Sword card, so it’s more about thoughts than emotions. It wasn’t until the end of the year I realized that I had learned about how thoughts cause pain, and that was the best thing I learned that year… which totally fits with what the card means, as a mental card.

In the reading I’m doing right now, I drew 4 of Swords, 8 of Swords and Page of Wands as advice cards. I see 4 of Swords easily as a rest card, but the 8 of Swords throws me off as I see it to be a card about holding yourself prisoner. Then at the end, Page of Wands about starting something new or learning a new trade (not something I consider negative). So weaving the meanings all together is tricky for a rusty reader like me. Maybe, resting will give you insight as to how you hold yourself prisoner, so you can start your new project? That feels better than sleep even though it won’t be restful because you got shit to do. lulz

I want to say it took me a good 10 minutes of sitting still to get there, though. Which I hate because I’m so used to being a fluid reader. But this has definitely gotten easier for me the more I’ve made myself do it.
