My working copy (I have two more in pristine condition because I am a bit of a hoarder like that) has been lovingly released of its' borders and clumsily gilded with silver. I love it all the more for that.
Tonight I am reading at an event for a friend's sister, a fundraiser to help raise money to fill in the gaps her insurance has left between what she needs to treat her breast cancer and what they are willing to pay for. If you are in Denver, please come by and see me, have a drink, do a little dancing, bid on a private reading or a psychic party, or any of the other cool stuff they have on offer at The Olde Towne Tavern, 2410 W Main St, Littleton, Colorado 80120-1911. The restaurant is open until 2am, but will be open only for fundraiser guests from 5pm-9pm. It is a Halloween party, so get as much use out of your costume as possible! Me, I'll be rocking the Gypsy chic, and choice of this deck or the Halloween Tarot to get a reading from.
I am asking my cards what I can expect from that event tonight.
|Deviant Moon Tarot- The Lovers, Two of Petancles, Six of Wands|
This Two of Pentacles is probably my favorite card in the entire world, she is so beautiful to me. A large print of this card dominates our living room decor. This card is about making the logistical details of life work, and to get to this party I have had to do some finagling with the kids. That's okay, with a little help from my sister in law, a little repaid favors, it is all working out. I think this card also means I will be busy, managing many things at once, which is perfect. The more money raised for this cause, the better! Because I love the imagery of the card so much, it reflects back to The Lovers, and doing what I love.
The Six of Wands is a card of victory and accolades. I think having a reader at the party will be a success, and hopefully it will mean more money donated to the cause. If I do well, if I impress enough people, hopefully I can add a few clients to my roster, as well, always the goal of the small business person. Wands are about our passions, and Sixes are new found stability, as well as relating to the Lovers, so I think this makes a very cohesive reading that talks about me doing what I love to the benefit of all. I couldn't be happier!
|Deviant Moon Tarot- The Sun|
All in all, I expect a very successful event, and I am hoping to really put a huge dent in this sweet ladies medical bills. Again, if you have the time, please come down and help a great cause while having a good bit of fun!
|Deviant Moon Tarot- Temperance|
Update- It was a great evening, packed full, and I had a wonderful time doing readings, meeting interesting people, and supporting a very worthy cause. Not to mention the fact that I am like a magpie and I wear very little jewelry or make up in my day to day life so I relish every chance to pile every piece I own on and go crazy with the smoky eye AND red lips AND glitter. I am very glad I had that Temperance revelation, because I did have a couple of people who had imbibed quite a bit, and having a sense of humor as well as remembering that drunk people tell no lies and need a certain kind of gentleness helped me a lot. I am praying that enough money was raised to really put a dent in the guest of honor's bills, because I got to meet her and she is a sweet soul who should not be getting shafted by her insurance company, and I am just glad if I could help in any way.
