Hi there; very cool tumblr! I was just wondering how accurate your self readings are generally? I read through your FAQ and saw your opinion on them, which I agree with, however I keep getting the same cards every time I shuffle and find my interpretation a bit disturbing. I can generally read them pretty well, not to sound overconfident, but what Im finding at the moment is causing unease. Thanks!

I know it can be very frustrating when reading yourself and trying to be objective. 

I wrote about this here: 

Six Mistakes To Avoid When Reading Tarot For Yourself


As far as the same cards coming up again and again in a reading, I believe that there is a message that you cards are trying to “tell” you.You should try to record that reading in a journal or even on your phone so you can look back on it, over a few days, weeks, months and see if you now have a better understanding of the reading. 

Let me know if you need more guidance after you put these practices into effect. I’d be more than willing to help. :)

A quick and dirty chart to tarot cards and their common meanings. Be open to different interpretations of these words. Researching deeper into the meaning of each card is recommended if things are still unclear, or these definitions aren’t jiving with you.

A great quick reference for people just starting to lose the book and go in with only the cards. With years of reading, I still haven’t memorized them. But like faelight said, researching deeper is recommended. (The book and the chart may say one thing, but if your gut says another, it’s probably right).

"Seance Spread"
This is a page from my grimoire. I have a spirit who hangs out in my bedroom. He’s kind of like a passive aggressive roommate. But now he’s reaching out for help, so I came up with this basic spread last night.
Like all forms of seance, proceed with caution.
1. Who are you? 2. What is holding you here? 3. Do you want to move on? 4. What will help you let go? 5. How can I help you?
