There was a full moon this morning, but also a Tammy Baldwin town hall meeting (more about that later, here or on FB), so I put off this post until after getting home and eating. I am once again offering to draw cards with the hope of sending some good energy out into the world, to spark both hope and creativity. You can ask about real life, of course, or about a creative project. For instance, I can draw a card for you to meditate on, to represent the Guide you need right now, or to get you unstuck. Alternatively, I can draw a card for a character or can draw a card or cards for you to use as writing or art prompts.

There is a Torn World Muse Fusion coming up later this month; if you want a taste of that world and if you tip, you can ask for an in-character reading in that world for yourself or for a Torn World character. These readings take me more time and energy, which is why I don't offer them for free.

Daylight Savings time "sprung back" overnight, so it isn't getting dark quite so early, always a welcome thing. My "green room" has little pots, some with seedlings and some without. My work space is currently cluttered with acrylic paints, brushes, and canvasses that hold some very incomplete paintings. But come in, be welcome, whether you've visited before or not. I won't try to resist showing off my in-progress work, which includes the very start of a painting inspired (but not required) by the last two readings. The frog has a sore foot, and I envision adding at least Ffaff the Ffooter, examining the frog. Or perhaps the frog is a statue, and Ffaff is doing something else here...I'm not sure.

If I get at least $50 in this drawing, I'll do a separate painting for this drawing, as I said. If not, the readings here might be used to expand my vision of the Frogg & Ffaff painting.

But it's time to put the paintings aside for a bit, pay bills, and if you drop by, do some readings.

Until Wednesday, for free one card readings, you can pick from the Brian Froud's Faeries Oracle, my combined Susan Seddon Boulet Animal Spirits and Goddesses cards, or the Shapeshifter Tarot. You can ask a question, ask for a Guide, ask for inspiration, or you can just ask for a card. I don't need to know what your question is, but you are welcome to share it with me if you like.

If I get $50 in tips, I'll use the cards I draw to inspire a painting, and I'll post progress drawings here for you all to see. So far I've received $17.50 of $50 for this drawing.

The first card is free (though tips are always appreciated). Tips also let you ask me to use any of my other decks, to request a private reading, or to draw a clarifying card. If you want a longer reading, send a direct message so we can agree on the type of reading and rate.

Please consider dropping something in the guitar case below. Readings take time and energy, and there are still squirrels that think my house is their home tree. I will soon need to pay someone to undo the winter's damage.

Signal boosts are very much appreciated, and also earn you the right to ask for a clarifying card.

I understand all too well that when people don't have cash or spoons that is generally when they most need inspiration! Don't be afraid to ask for a card if you can't tip.

If you tip, it's helpful to me for you to mention it here so I can connect your paypal information with your request. Tips should be at least $1 (Paypal charges fees). If that doesn't work for you, drop me a message and we'll work something else out.

I've written before about why I do readings and some of the decks I use here, feel free to hop over and check me out. I'll wait.

I will reply to all requests. In the highly unlikely event that the number of requests nears my limits, I'll close this card draw by adding a clear note at the top of the post rather than risk leaving anyone without a response.

Thank you, and Blessed Be!

As always, these readings are for entertainment and inspiration only. See my "Dandelyon's Readings" page if you have questions.

I would like a card please. I just made a big decision tonight, I'm quite nervous about it, and I wonder what the future will bring. No preference for deck. I sent a tip.

Losgunna, the Frog Queen
Come in, come in. Big decisions are hard. I certainly understand that. It's so hard to peer through the murky waters that separate the present from the future--until the die is cast and the future flows around us without stopping.

Here, have some tea!

I hand you a mug, and you look inside it and see Losgunna under the water, smiling and winking at you.

Startled, you set the tea on the table, looking at it uncertainly. All of a sudden, you're not so sure you want to drink it.

Laughing, Losgunna leaps from your shoulder to the table. "There's nothing wrong with the tea, my friend."

Indeed, the tea cup is still full. She was never in that dark water, was she? Her hair isn't even wet. But still, you saw what you saw.

She stretches to human size and sits down, taking your mug, and I pour another one for you. She drinks. "You never know what's under the water until you dive in and check it out." She drains the mug and then swirls it around. Something is inside, you hear it rolling against the pottery.

She tilts it toward you, and you see a round, slightly lavender pearl. "It might not be what you expect, but there's nearly always a treasure to be found."

I left a tip this time. As usual, all I want is random whateverness :-)

Incidentally, most frogs have long, slender feet...

Thank you for the tip! As to the painting, there's lots wrong with it still, besides being very incomplete (whether it turns out to be a live frog or a statue)! Thanks for the comments! I appreciate them.

Let me do the reading for Pyraxis, and I'll be back with your reading.

Most frogs evolved to be jumpers (although there are frogs who walk, swim, climb, or even glide), so they have to have a lot of length in their rear limbs to catapult them into the air. Not only are their leg bones long, so are their feet and toes. The legs, feet, and toes dangle behind the frog in a surprisingly aerodynamic way when the frog leaps.

(As my user profile states, "I tend to emit information and/or advice almost involuntarily, the way a cat sheds"...)

the Singer of the Chalice, reversed
When you come in, we chat about the painting for a bit. Tea is steeping, a nice chai, but when I lift the kettle to pour, nothing comes out.

There's clearly some tea in there, we can smell it. I shake the pot a little, then set it down on the hot plate and look it over. "Something's blocking it!"

Now, this is a ceramic teapot my daughter made, not some metal thingy with a lid designed to be open or not, depending on how you put it on.

I look inside. There's nothing blocking it, at least nothing I can see. The tea bag is where it's supposed to be, on the other side of the pot from the spout, still attached to the little string that I wound around the handle.

Suddenly, She is there, singing softly. I put the lid back on and pout tea--three mugs, though the Singers rarely materialize enough to drink. But it's the principle of the thing. She is welcome, and so are her blessings, trust, joy, patience, creativity, hope, and sometimes even miracles.

We drink, and a cloud of fragrant steam rises from her cup. Then warmth surrounds you like a hug or a lacy knitted shawl. In her ongoing song, you hear the words, "trust yourself".

Re: the Singer of the Chalice, reversed
Last Full Moon, I got the Singer of Courage, reversed. (At least in your decks, reversal doesn't automatically make a card's meaning negative!)

Funny you should mention a lacy knitted shawl - an Australian friend of mine, who knits and crochets beautiful things, sent me a post-Yule gift (in January) of a lovely shawl in a variegated-purple yarn that manages to be both lacy and fluffy. (I'm going to need it on Tuesday, when we get an end-of-winter "snowpocalypse"!) But I know the feeling... the warm, scented cloud that wraps everything in softness and comfort... mmmm...

If I don't trust myself, who else would I trust? And I have often found myself to be the most trustworthy person around. Yes, Singer, I will sing a "song of myself" over my mug of hot tea...

Thank you both!

Re: the Singer of the Chalice, reversed
I don't know what's blocking her energy from flowing properly, or in what area of your life it lies, though it could be the politics of our nation, since you've mentioned that before. Or it could be some other area or endeavor, and private that I was given no hints, But I did get the clear impression that when you take a look at the blockage, either the act of looking will clear it or you will see what to do, and when you start doing it, the energies that are in this Singer's purview will start to flow again.

The shawl sounds lovely!

We're already in the middle of our spring snowpocalypse, so if you were here in body I'd either have to insist you stay for a while or caution you to be careful out there!

Re: the Singer of the Chalice, reversed
I think I see where She's going with this. (Although it's too vague at the moment for me to explain it, even to myself.)

If I were at your place when the storm began, I'd definitely stay until the roads were cleared. I know how to drive in ice and snow, but very few of the other drivers out there do...
