The furniture is interestingly shuffled, right now. I'm gathering stuff in the living room to give to the Habitat for Humanity Restore. We'll see how much of the attic I can clear out before their scheduled arrival date. It should be a substantial declutter, if nothing else.

Outside, the roses are blooming. Oddly enough, this year they started blooming before the day lilies, which are just getting started. If you come by and don't see me right away, come around back and tell me I can stop weeding around the tomato plants for a bit! The weeds are quite tall, as I've been busy with indoor tasks and runs to the Geek Squad, glasses place, and other such tasks.

Computer follies have continued, the car acquired a large screw in a non-repairable part of one tire, and when I went in to get the replacement "temple" (arm) of my glasses replaced, they broke the still-functional old one, so my glasses are still kind of wobbly on my face (the spares they found to loan me in the meantime have a "spring feature" that, in my opinion, is a "spring bug").

But still, it's summer and nice out (here, anyway--no 100 degree temps this far inland so far).

I'm going to continue offering a five-card reading for $25, or if you want a larger reading we can discuss costs. As always, a signal boost will allow you to ask for a clarification card on some part of this reading, if you wish. Alternatively, you can ask for a Torn World reading and get an in-character reading in Affamarg or the Breidalam Mountains using that world's standard layout for the divination disks.

Or, of course, you can simply ask for a single card (with the usual clarifying card for people who tip or signal boost). The guitar case below is my personal PayPal link, featuring my own artwork, which still inspires me even though it isn't Tarot-related.

So, let's see if I can offer some some inspiration or spark some creativity for you. You can ask about real life or a creative project, or even a game. I can draw a card for you to meditate on, to represent the Guide you need right now, or to get you unstuck. I can draw a card for a character or can draw a card or cards for you to use as writing or art prompts, and I can modify a more-traditional five-card spread into a prompt for a story focusing on plot or characters or a little of both.

New friends and old are very welcome. The grass is shaggy, and weeds are keeping the tomato and squash plants company, but some of the roses have started to bloom, and I'm happy to have you visit.

For free one card readings, you can pick from the Brian Froud's Faeries Oracle, the Daughters of the Moon Tarot (one of the round decks), or the Shapeshifter Tarot. You can ask a question, ask for a Guide or 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.

The first card is free (though tips are always appreciated). Tips (including requests for longer readings) also let you ask me to use any of my other decks, including but not limited to my combined Susan Seddon Boulet Animal Spirits and Goddesses cards and my Fantasy Showcase Tarot deck where each card was done by a different artist. Tipping can also be used 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.

Signal boosts are very much appreciated, and also earn you the right to ask for a clarifying card. I'd love to do a bunch of readings, under the circumstances!

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 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. However, I intend to stay open through the weekend, and longer for paid readings.

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.

It's just before six on a winter's morning here, and there's a sliver of moon in the north east sky

Myk the Myomancer
There's a black cat in my yard this year. There's one inside, too, but at the moment, we're outside, and we're watching the feral cat, who is laying there, all stretched out and lazy, having eaten some of the cat food I set out (once I was well out of the way). It is watching something intently, though, somewhere in among the roses and day lilies.

It starts to move into pouncing position, and suddenly Myk is there, rubbing the cat's ears. The cat leans back and closes its eyes.

Now we can see what the cat was watching for, because Myk is peering at it intently, even as his nimble fingers distract the cat. It is a young mouse, with a little dusting of yellowish pollen on its gray back. Myk smiles. "It's been a good summer so far."

"How do you know that?"

"Oh, you can learn a lot from mice, if you watch them closely enough."

I've run into Myk before. Mice are his crystal ball--or perhaps he's more a scientist than a magician, as gnomes go. His message is that it's all in the details, in watching patiently, in seeing the connections between the micro and macro.

If you listen longer to Myk, he will tell you how to scry the future from the patterns in a mouse's fur, or the footprints they leave in the dirt, but it's quite possible that you can scry better looking at little things that fascinate you as much as mice fascinate Myk. Good thing, that, since I'm allergic to mice! Myomancy would surely lead me to more sneezes than understanding.

Another mouse comes out, and the two play tag, to Myk's amusement. The cat still has its eyes closed, and is now curled so Myk can rub it's belly. The mice vanish, and Myk lifts his fingers from the cat, who licks a paw automatically and then falls asleep.

Myk walks over to us. "You've got the part about the details right, but there's another bit that matters--if you apply the details to try to answer the wrong query, it'll all seem like nonsense!"

And then he turns and walks to the day lilies, growing smaller as he goes. He waves and smiles, and then ducks into the lilies. We catch a glimpse of a mouse-tail exiting the back of his jeans, and then he is gone, following the mice, as always.

A card, please!
I choose the Shapeshifter Tarot, and any interpretation you sense is signficant to me at this time.

Thank you so much for this generous gift!
