Today I read at the New Spirit Festival for the first time. While I have been to the festival in the past, today was the first time I actually put myself forward as one of the readers. And I am incredibly happy that I made that step. While I have done readings at other festivals in the past, it is always a bit of a challenge with a new place. I must say there were some amazing readers there and I felt very honoured to be amongst some exceptionally experienced women and men.
As usual, I felt a little nervous before the start, so I decided to do a 3 card draw for myself to ease into it – and got the above. What a neat little combination this was, and instantly I knew all would be all right, which of course it was. Seeing the 10 of Pentacles next to the 3 of Cups said “You will enjoy the day and the atmosphere will be a happy, joyous and rewarding energy”, while the 8 of Pentacles to me was all about mastering my craft and being tested on it, so to speak.
Once again I felt comfortable enough to use the Anna K Tarot, and I couldn’t recommend it enough for readings. I had some very clear readings with this deck today, and am getting more and more comfortable using it for public readings (as opposed to the trusty Rider Waite Smith, which I started using initially). Overall it was a really busy day, and after three hours of back to back readings, I felt totally drained energetically. So now I’m off to have an early night and restore some equilibrium in my mind and body.
