Get a Free Tarot Card Reading Right Now Courtesy of Fiverr and AppSumo!

As you may know, I started offering my tarot reading services on Fiverr.com. I normally encourage people to order from me directly now, because I get more of a cut of the price. But I do still offer my services on Fiverr. Deal site AppSumo is offering a free “gig” (the Fiverr terminology for a job) for new Fiverr accounts only (and while stocks last). You know what that means? You can get a free reading from me – and I’ll still get paid! That’s a great opportunity for anyone who has been nervous about pulling the trigger on a reading. Here’s a link:

Once you’ve got your free gig, here’s a link to get a reading from me: http://fiverr.com/foucault/give-you-a-no-nonsense-empowering-tarot-reading

What To Expect When You’re Expecting… a Tarot Reading!

As some of you of you know, I really enjoy receiving feedback from my clients when I’ve done readings for them. I consider myself to always be learning, and getting comments is a big part of the learning process for me. Every so often, I get some feedback that reassures me that I’m on the right track, not just with what I’ve said in my reading, but with the way I present my readings too. I got such a message recently from Samantha Popp, one of the winners of a free reading I announced recently, praising me for my “professional” approach, and it reminded me that I should talk a little here about what you actually get when you come to me for a tarot reading.

Document FolderI e-mail you a PDF document (so it’s readable and printable, regardless of platform and software you use) with your name, the date of the reading, your question and the cards I drew. Then there’s a photo of the actual layout of cards in your reading, so you can follow along with what comes next. I describe each card individually, drawing attention to the parts of the card that are relevant to the question. Then I summarize the entire layout and what it means in the context of your question.

My ultimate goal is always to show you exactly what I see in the cards; I think it’s more meaningful for you that way. I also hope that you’ll hold on to this document and refer to it now and in the future.

Express Readings Now Available

ExpressA recent request via Fiverr made me realize I hadn’t yet included an “express” option for ordering your readings on my website. That is now fixed!

Depending on how many orders I have at any given time, I generally return the results of my readings within 3 days at most. Sometimes, however, you’re faced with an imminent decision, and a fast tarot reading can be really useful. So, for a little extra, I’ll drop everything, put your order at the front of the line (or “queue” as we Brits refer to it!), and get your reading to you within 24 hours.

You’ll see the option on my Order page. I hope you find it useful.

How You Can Win a FREE Tarot Reading!

FreeAs some of you might know, I put out a monthly newsletter via email. In addition to highlighting some of my recent “Musings” posts (and revisiting some posts from my archives), I also share some great articles, etc., I find around the web. It’s not always tarot-related, but it’s always something I think my audience will enjoy or find useful. You can see some examples on my Newsletter Archive page.

I’d really like you to subscribe to the newsletter if you haven’t done so already. As an incentive, I’ve decided to choose one lucky new subscriber at random at 8 a.m. Eastern Time on Monday, April 13, to receive a FREE tarot card reading. In addition, as a thank you to those of you who have been subscribed all along, I’ll also choose one of you at random to receive a free reading!

Tarot Readings: How To Ask Your Question

One of the things I’ve learned since I’ve been offering tarot card readings is that people often have difficulty wording the questions they want answered. They frequently have a very general idea, but sometimes they need a little help in putting their thoughts into words. I find that tarot can be very useful when you need to make an important decision, but need some help finding the best direction to take. However, some people just want some general guidance about a certain area of their life, such as their career, love-life, etc.

SignpostBecause I’ve been asked so many times for help putting together a question, I realized that I hadn’t provided enough guidance on my website about how to do it. I’ve now hopefully fixed that by providing a How to Ask Your Question page.

On that page, I’ve also added that instead of asking a specific question, I’ll also do readings “on a theme,” for those who want more general guidance on one area of their life. Tarot is an effective tool for me to use for certain types of questions, and not so effective in other cases, and I’ve outlined that too.

Of course, as always, if you ever have difficulty with this process, I’ll be happy to help you. Just drop me an e-mail at tarotbygraham@gmail.com.

Book Review – Perfect Pairings: The Art of Connecting People by Jessica Leigh Levin

You might be surprised to see a review of a “business book” on a tarot site, but there are specific reasons why I’m doing that here. Firstly, this book firmly straddles the line between business and self help/self improvement and that makes it relevant to many people I do readings for. Secondly, as you’ll read below, Perfect Pairings has changed the way I think and will certainly influence the advice I give to some of my clients.

perf5.000x8.000.inddI was originally going to preface my review of Perfect Pairings: The Art of Connecting People by Jessica Leigh Levin with a disclaimer, saying that the author is a personal friend of mine (in fact, she gives me a shout-out on page 80!); however, I realised that being a friend of the author put me in somewhat of a unique position to add something to my review that I think is particularly important. You see, this isn’t a book containing armchair theories and “pipe-dreams.” I know from personal experience that Jessica practices what she preaches – she lives her life as a “connector.”

You’re probably familiar with “networking,” the technique of meeting people at events, etc., and finding out how those people can help us and vice versa. Connecting, as Ms. Levin describes it, is an alternative that can yield extraordinary and far-reaching results. Here’s an example of how the connector mindset works: I may be talking with someone, either in-person or online. I will be thinking of someone in my network who might be able to help this person meet their challenges, or I may be thinking of someone in my network who might benefit from the experience or expertise of the person I’m talking with. On the surface, it’s a very selfless act, but there are hidden benefits to the connector, as the author describes.

I always think that one of the signs of a great business or self-help book is that it gets you thinking about things you can do yourself, and Perfect Pairings is a perfect example of this. On almost every page I found myself thinking of parallels in my own life and how I could put the techniques and suggestions in the book to immediate use (and the book has inspired me to actually follow through with that); in addition, Jessica helpfully ends most chapters with an action item that pretty much anyone can do. The book also reassured me that, while networking is often an extrovert’s game, connecting works well for introverts too.

While Jessica started writing her book with the intention of it being a “business book,” she soon realized that the connector mindset could be a benefit to many aspects of one’s life, and so the book is full of great advice for not just making business connections, but personal ones too.

In conclusion, this is an easy-to-understand, practical, life-changing book that can benefit almost anyone.
