Anonymous said: Whats your opinion on male Tarot card readers and male diviners in general?

I know some might disagree, but I don’t think women hold the market on divination.  Talent and ability don’t discriminate—if you got it, you’ve got it, it doesn’t matter what body you happen to walking around in.

If you’ve been discouraged because you’re male, I’d say you need to tell people to fuck off—the Tarot is there for anyone who wants it to be part of their life.

I 100% agree. I know some amazing male diviners and some terrible females so I really agree that the idea that it’s an only girls club is a bit archaic

I’ve had some awesome readings by male readers. They tend to have a different method than female readers, but they are comparable.

If we really wanted to, we could look at statistical differences in terms of how many, how popular, etc. And we could look at social differences that could lead to differing methods, etc.

Get all soc/psych up in here.

Oh, I would enjoy participating in such a study. How do you think we could go about gathering information?

Interested how you might include the good number of trans and nonbinary diviners in the community. I identify as male/nb but was socialized female, so how does that affect my Tarot reading, if at all?

I’d actually never heard that people think men can’t do divination as well as women…..? But I can certainly see where certain gender-related social/psych factors might cause trends or might be more beneficial to divining than others.

Well, if you ask Z Budapest… but that’s a rant for another time. 

Maybe we could have a survey? Have people fill it out at the end of a reading. I honestly think that the relation of ability and gender is entirely in the querent’s perception, but I think that this would be an interesting opportunity to see how nb/trans persons are seen in the community and have it documented. 

ah yes, Z Budapest. we can save that can of worms for later.

A survey sounds like a good starting point. I’d need to do readings for other people a lot more often to gather any real data, though, ahaha. I probably do about 2 a month right now.

not much, but here’s a sigil to bolster the effects of all the action, magical and physical, that’s being taken to get mike brown and ferguson the justice they deserve. i encourage you to use it in your own workings if you can, and if you’re going to participate, the tag is #fighting for ferguson

After FedEx manhandled this lovely piece, I’m so glad that it’s finally in my possession! Isn’t it gorgeous?! That is a silver wire-wrapped labradorite almost the size of my thumb, on a chain with fluorite beads. Just look at that lovely blue ~
I bought it HERE at natural-magics Etsy store! She has BEAUTIFUL PIECES and they are so very, very worth it. <3

Gorgeous! I will recommend this store as well; I have a lovely copper-wire wrapped quartz point from her which I wear most days of the week. Wire wrapping is certainly an art she does well.

Reblog if you are a mage, witch, wizard, occultist, shaman or any metaphysical sort of person.

I’m so excited to see one of these that include my areas for once! :D hahaha.. *squee*

loosely identify as witch/shaman… definitely metaphysical.
