I just started reading Tarot Cards today. I’m not very good yet and let’s be honest I pretty much just make it up as I go. I’m wondering how much I should charge and if you think it’s a good idea to do readings for my friends and family. Serious responses only please I really think this may be my new calling in life!
I would go to a public place with your cards and practice in the open. People will usually ask questions about what you’re doing and why, etc. For those who are interested in a POSITIVE manner (and aren’t looking to start an argument with you about whether Tarot is demonic, etc.) – Offer to do readings (keep them simple & short, as you want to feel comfortable and you also should never pretend to be more experienced than you really are) for them. Tell them that you do not charge a fee because you’re still learning, but that you do welcome tips if they feel inclined. Whether they tip or not doesn’t matter. And it’s wise that you set out WITHOUT expectations of, or even thinking about, making any money. You’ll have gained invaluable experience in not only Tarot reading itself, but in dealing with the public (which is a LARGE, very important, part of Tarot reading).
