This is funnier than it should be.
Why do I want to make a spread out of this…?
Situation, bad place, good place?
Oh, that would work too…I was thinking like…the actual doors/puns being the positions like…
Door: The path directly ahead of you
More Doors: Alternate paths
Gone Door: A path that’s closed off to you
I admittedly don’t know enough re: Tolkien to properly use the references as is XDD Although I have to say, I’m really surprised I don’t see more Tolkien inspired spreads around!
Someone needs to make a Pop Culture Tarot Spread book or something
I’ve considered it! At this point I probably have enough of them for my own book XDD; But I’m not sure of all the legal bits and I’m too lazy to figure it out…
I actually did start writing [tarot told me to :D] a Pop Culture Tarot Spreads book, until I realised what kind of copyright, permissions, trademarks, branding blah blah blah bullshit would have to be dealt with before publishing and NOPE.
The Major Arcana (and a back design)
Thanks for all your support over these few months! I’m glad you all enjoy these so much. They are super fun to make!
On to the Minor Arcana! Oi vey
What? Whaaat? LOOK AT THESE PRETTY CARDS?? I HAVE NOT SEEN THEM BEFORE?? DO THEY HAVE A NAME? WILL I GET TO HOLD THEM ONE DAY? WILL THEY BE MINE
if a palm reader or someone who dose tarot card readings charges you it’s not real. When they start to charge people it’s not true and they will slowly lose there gift. Only exception is if it’s for charity. Then they can ask for donations for there work and then…
OP, have you ever done readings for a living? Or have you ever actually asked some one who does? Do you have any idea what it’s like to get harassed by people with meaningless, mundane questions - ones that any adult should should be able to work out? Charging money for readings is no different than an artist charging for their paintings, or a musician for their performances. Shit is hard work and you bet your ass I’ll want to get paid for it. Plus, charging discourages the morons from bugging you.
What soror-dxm said. Readings are work and it is fair to pay for work.
That’s them not too long ago.
They can be found at their “short” length here.
They are not fake. Those are mine. Yes, somewhere in the badlands between “storybook witch” and “Nosferatu”.

Process of Yuzen - The making of a kimono
Now I understand why real kimonos are so expensive.
One of my kimono was made using Yuzen. I have it hanging on a wall because it is a work of art worthy of being adored.

2/2 “free will”. Some people think that archangels and some certain lower level angels experience some form of free will… Although there isn’t much historical evidence of angels in the same ways as demons. I really don’t see why they couldn’t exist as well, especially since a proportion of the experience is based upon energy. In addition, what do you think about the idea that current angelkin may actually be souls from a race that can closely identify with angels? (Just curious… sorry)
I think the origin of “angelkin love and lighters” comes from those who connect angelkin to starseeds, indigo/crystal children, and that stuff. people who believe they were angels sent to earth to help and fix it in some way. not all angelkin are like this, but this definitely is a sect of them.
it’s always good to stand up for yourself, and that’s not something I really have a problem with. but if you say you’re a non-Abrahamic angel, you’ve basically created a string of words and made a non-word. Angels come from Abrahamic religion. without it, there really aren’t angels. it’s like saying you’re a non-Asian Korean.
and angels don’t have free will, that’s the point. demons have free will. angels have the connection and love of God, that’s all they need. that’s why the average Abrahamic strives to go to heaven, because it allows for the closeness and love of God. that’s how Abrahamics work. to say angels excersize free will is a misunderstanding of their origin and their religious background.
there is loads of information on angels. plenty. it’s within the biblical texts, and there are books made specifically about angels (Book of Enoch) that include all this information. there definitely isn’t a shortage on these. I would say there is a chance of getting the love and light books, but you avoid that if you stick to biblical texts.
I have no place to talk on the last part, since I’m not otherkin. I have no idea if there is some entity that looks and sounds like an angel, but people cling to the angel title because it’s better or makes more sense or something of the sort. I flat out do not know. but, my original statement stands. I do not really think angelkin is a thing because my religion kind of completely stands at odds with it in every way.

Without commenting too much on the question of angel-kin, I would like to dispute the statement that there are not non-Abrahamic angels. The fravashi of the Zoroastrian religion are arguably angels, as are the yazatas and Amesha Spentas (archangels or demigods) dependent on your interpretation. (Briefly, it’s dependent on what text from what era, as some favour a more polytheistic view than others, and also partly on your translation).
To summarise fravashi - everyone gets one, plus there are others doing their job making the world run. Your personal fravashi is empowered by your virtuous actions and protect you, so if you’re a terrible person they can do jack shit for you. Others in the hierarchy, like Sraosha, actively go around breaking Daeva skulls - pacifists they aren’t. And this is a job and duty they chose to do. Amongst the posited roots of the word ‘fravashi’ are ‘to choose/profess faith’, ‘to ward protectively’ or ‘turn away death’.
It is implied, if not stated, within the Gathas that all beings of divine origin, be they fravashi or Daeva (demons), chose to be what they are: Of these twain Spirits he that followed the Lie chose doing the worst things; the holiest Spirit chose Right, he that clothes him with the massy heavens as a garment. So likewise they that are fain to please Ahura Mazda by dutiful actions. Between these twain the Daevas also chose not aright, for infatuation came upon them as they took counsel together, so that they chose the Worst Thought. Then they rushed together to Violence, that they might enfeeble the world of men - Ahunavaiti Gatha, 30:5-6.
Considering the worldview of the Zoroastrian faith is so heavily focused on free will and moral agency, it would actually be bizarre for the fravashi to be mindlessly obedient. Such a thing is heavily condemned within religious canons such as the Denkard, and the fravashi and others embody virtues whose examples that humanity ought to strive to emulate, so it’d make no sense. Even if they effectively only have one important choice - whether to keep helping humanity or throw it in with the Daeva - it still is a choice.
Anyway, I’d argue that this does mean that, depending on how you view them (it is valid to see the fravashi either as either angels or benevolent spirits), you could plausibly have an angel wandering around with free will and kicking heads in while disliking the Abrahamic faiths, which have been described as daevolatry in the Denkard and Avestas.
Am I saying that angelkin are fravashi? Well, I imagine you’d get less people who are mistaken claiming to be fravashi though - Zoroastrianism is a fairly obscure faith, so people likely would jump towards an Abrahamic interpretation. Does that translate to more of a chance of people claiming to be incarnated fravashi actually being legit? Not a clue. Sucks to be anyone who was faking it though as they’d get a unwanted attention for doing so. fravashi fight the Lie, and they’d be feeding it - hello to both angry fravashi and predatory Daeva for anyone stupid enough to try.
(Also, forgive weird grammar and capitalisation in this post oh crap how did it turn 4:30 am without me noticing why am I still awaaaaaake?)
Rebagle for later snacking. And also, Hazel.
But fuck it, it had tentacles on it.
It’s pretty decent, though not my favorite of the Black Strap rum varieties. It’s a smooth-drinkin beverage, though.
Kraken is the shit (though Tanduay is KING OF RUMS ALL HAIL TANDUAY SMOOTHEST OF THE SMOOTH YOU GIVE ME THE VOICE OF AN ANGEL ILU5EVA). Try it in blueberry juice. TRY IT.

IN SOVIET VANAHEIM YOU WORK FOR GODS
Ummm, it’s a book on astrology?
And the “gods” are the planets, specifically, planetary archetypes?
You don’t have to “believe” in archetypes, but please realise that this book isn’t talking about literally pwning the gods, rather working with the planets as they appear in your chart.
Presumption of Innocence. [x]
Actually that’s the way they’re supposed to be worn! I used to work at a high range clothing store and everyone including the tailors raved about this. A good pair of jeans isn’t supposed to be washed often since it fades the color and changes the structure of the pants, wearing them down. So if they look clean then don’t wash them except maybe once every 3 months and you’ll have those pants for a long, long time.
but my jeans always seem to get stretched out and baggy after wearing them for a few days and washing them fixes it?
I’ll actually buy slightly tighter jeans because of that, so they’ll be a bit too right after just washing but fit perfectly fine later.
SOMEBODY FINALLY SAID IT, THANK YOU.
I’ve got like three pairs of jeans and I usually wear one pair for at least a week or two, or until they get dirty (like stained or something).
my crazyass stepmom thinks wearing them for more than three days is disgusting, but she also expects people to fold their underwear so what the fuck does she know lmao, the crazy cunt.
Seriously, unless you get foul pretty quick, wearing a pair of jeans for a week straight isn’t that bad.
I believe the Golden Rule of Jeans is, “Don’t Wash Them Unless They Can Stand On Their Own”.
i used the standard 3-CARD SMILEY FACE SPREAD for this in the hopes of a more optimistic reading.
you got a REVERSED 10 OF CHALICES, a 5 OF BATONS, and a 2 OF SWORDS. since your question was more of a command than anything, the spirit world also gave my dogs the gift of tongues to punish me for entertaining YOUR insolence, so now i’ve got all these dismembered tongues to clean up off the floor. thx.
the REVERSED 10 OF CHALICES implies you’re going to be M E G A M E G A D R U N K at some point in the future, like way too drunk. funky drunk. slam drunk. you’ll probably meet a street band made up of five dudes who only play batons percussion instruments. you will accidentally tip one of them 20 dollars instead of 3 dollars, and that will start you on a whirlwind romance, wherein you will discover the perilous highs and comfortable lows of dating a street musician.
the 2 OF SWORDS implies you’ll run into a sleepwalker with a DANGEROUS-ASS HABIT of carrying swords around on her somnambulist journeys, for safety. you will rescue her from walking into traffic, she will sleep-challenge you to a swordfight, and it will end in a very meet-cute draw with minimal blood. you will embark on a whirlwind romance here also, but all your great couple moments will be tainted with the knowledge that she might accidentally stab you in her sleep.
[ugly laughter] This isn’t supposed to be a serious reading, but the funny thing is, IT IS. Sorry, nonny, NO HAPPY ENDINGS FOR YOU.
Then again, the problem could just be that the reading uses the LS Universal. That deck is a dick.
But I showed it… I showed them ALL.
