Before I continue with this blog post, I just wanted to apologize if I came across sounding rude to those who had been supporting my work at Sun Goddess Tarot. However, to protect my clients and to help me provide a better service to those who came to me for Tarot readings because of genuine issues that would have had major implications on their lives, careers and families, I thought I had to share my thoughts on an issue that had been affecting me recently – querants who assumed that I was their Tarot reader on tap.
As a Tarot reader, it is very important that we regularly take necessary steps to protect ourselves from negative energy as well as from spiritual, mental, physical and emotional exhaustion due to the amount of readings we do every day.
Since turning professional with my Tarot cards, I had to remind myself about self care every now and then so that I can render better advice to my clients. When my father got struck with a stroke, I realized that I needed time not only to take care of myself, but also time for the family.
Volunteering As A Free Reader
Having had my skills and experience honed by the numerous readings that I did for free for family, friends, and querants when I was a Tarot rookie, I had not forgotten my promise to give back to the community. So I volunteered as a free reader with Biddy Tarot and the Free Tarot Network and have been doing a limited amount of free readings a week so that I can balance my time and effort between free readings, paid readings for my clients, time for my family and of course, time for myself.
I Am Not A Tarot Reader On Tap
The balance of time and energy I had been maintaining between my volunteer work and my work as a professional Tarot reader was very important for me. However, sometimes, querants who had contacted me in the past through Biddy Tarot and the Free Tarot Network would contact me directly to ask for a free reading.
I had to put a stop to this because it was unfair to querants who had been waiting in the queue to have their Tarot cards read for free when they had completed a request form online via the respective websites. It seemed even more unfair to my clients who had paid me good money to read their Tarot cards.
Without sounding rude and ungrateful for your trust in my intuitive skills, I would like to say “STOP! I am not your Tarot reader on tap.” I would be doing ALL my querants a disservice if I had continued to entertain requests for free Tarot readings from querants who contacted me directly.
A single Tarot reading session always takes up a lot of time and energy. It is spiritually, emotionally, physically and mentally draining. I need a lot of time in between these sessions to meditate and ground myself. Moreover, my paying clients are not just paying clients who engage me for a one-time consultation. Over the years, they have become good friends whom I had spent a lot of time keeping in touch with and nurturing a relationship. So my Tarot reading sessions do go beyond that hour with my client, hence more time and energy is put into these paid readings.
With very limited time in my hands, I would not want to do you a disservice by agreeing to read your Tarot cards for free, only to end up providing you with a reading that is below average in quality. I have too much of respect for Tarot to do that.
Where To Get Your Tarot Cards Read For Free
So, please do me a favour. I have been juggling multiple commitments from conducting Tarot and Numerology lessons, to reading for clients, to volunteering as a free reader , to doing readings at events and charity fund-raisers' to taking care of my family. From time to time, I might feel as if light had been zapped out of me. I know it is just exhaustion hence self care is essential. While I do thank you for your trust in me, my advice to you is that if you would like to get your Tarot cards read for free, please complete the online request form like everyone else at www.biddytarot.com, www.freetarot.us or www.tabi.org.uk
