So my roommate is dating a new girl, Alysha. When she was over the first time–she spied our bedroom altar. Alysha got pretty excited, I guess she wrote a paper on paganism or wicca or something. So she wanted to meet me. Not a lot of folks have been over to my house, but I have altars everywhere, and I have a huge kitchen nook that serves as my altar room. I have stuff going on everywhere. We used to put our Yule tree in that area, so I am busily trying to figure out how to arrange the room to make space for it. She was really fun, and she wanted me to do a tarot reading for her. I did one, but it was strange, because I had already done two tarot readings about her for my roommate Al. I am glad she didn’t ask me a question on a romance topic, I really don’t like to do too many readings on the same issue in one week. The reading was about her family–it turned out pretty well, a good reading.
For the longest time, I was resistant to using tarot. But for some reason, I am really growing fond of my Robin Wood deck. It is easy to work with. I am seriously going to need to practice more with my ogham, because I can’t just look at them and know what they mean like I can with my tarot. The ogham are also not as good for romance based readings as most of the kennings that go with each one are more adventure based. I suppose with more practice I will be able to read them with ease.
