How can I tell which Tarot card represents me?
According to Alvarez, the simplest way to determine your tarot card is to “let your intuition be your guide.” “Choose a card at random, face down, from a shuffled deck. You can get some direction for the day by performing this action every morning or evening.”
This method of reading tarot cards is different from some others in that you don’t ask any questions (like you would with a Magic 8-Ball), you just take cards out of the deck. Then, she advises, “check up the meaning and consider your day to see if the card had any importance or emphasized an underlying theme.” This procedure “assists newcomers in becoming more theoretically acquainted with the cards as well as in viewing them as a link to personal and practical experiences.”
Find your zodiac card
According to Alvarez, this method is based on your solar sign and the traits that correspond to it (the one you say when someone asks you, “What’s your sign?”). “This card assists in highlighting your strengths, areas that may need improvement, and recurring themes in your life that may be caused by imbalances. Look up the Major Arcana card that usually corresponds with your sun sign, then your sun sign.” Although each card has multiple levels of meaning, Alvarez suggests the following descriptions:
What does a psychic tarot reader do?
Intuition, according to tarot reader and spiritual advisor Meghan Rose, is “the capacity to perceive something without ration or conscious reasoning.” Therefore, when using tarot cards, the readerwho may be a professional or you if you’re reading your own cardsreceives messages from the cards that are intuitive and cannot be explained logically. They are intuitive. And since we all possess superhuman intuition, improving your intuitive tarot abilities is absolutely doable with some practice.
Can I perform a tarot reading on myself?
Is it feasible for a beginner to perform Tarot spreads on themselves? Yes! It most certainly is. Tarot is a technique that aids in deepening our understanding of the present moment, honoring our intuition, and predicting future possibilities.
Which zodiac signs are represented by which tarot cards?
The astrological signs that correspond to the major arcana tarot cards are as follows:
- The Emperor rules Aries. Aries people enjoy taking charge of situations and being in leadership roles.
- The Hierophant is in Taurus.
- The lovers sign of Gemini.
- The Chariot of Cancer
- The Hermit, or Virgo.
What kind of religion are tarot cards?
Tarot cards are frequently cited as a component of New Age thought and practice along with astrology, aspects of Buddhism, paganism, and First Nations teachings in the eclectic scholarly approach to the New Age.
Do you know how to say “tarot”?
Depending on whether British English or American English is being used, the proper pronunciation of “tarot” in English significantly changes. The “t” in “tarot” is never uttered, in any scenario. The word “tarot” is pronounced “tah-row” in British English and “teh-row” in American English.
What industry do tarot readings fall under?
Knowing your NAICS Code is the first step to filing your Schedule Cs, or IRS Form 1040, which is the schedule a sole proprietorship, or your small firm that isn’t incorporated as a corporation, submits to record revenue and losses. Any business, regardless of its structure, will be given an NAICS Code.
The IRS and other government organizations use the NAICS Code (North American Industry Classification System) to catalog your company. It is the federal standard for business classification. Psychic services are typically categorized under NAICS Code # 812990. (See this; conduct a search for “ESP (Psi services.) I would anticipate that the majority of tarot experts, particularly those who advertise their services as psychic, would use NAICS #812990 ” (also titled “All other personal services).
Both “All other professional services,” NAICS Code # 541990, and “Other personal services,” NAICS Code # 812190, are acceptable categories for your tarot business. Both codes are also applicable to tarot practitioners who provide intuitive, spiritual, or life coaching services or who teach tarot. Since writing makes up the majority of my tarot work and writing is how I am paid for it, I classify as a writer “Individual performer, writer, or artist, NAICS code 711510.
Choose the Code that most accurately describes what you do if your professional tarot business combines some of the aforementioned aspects, as it most likely does.
You require tarot cards to operate a professional tarot business. The good news may be the best ever. Your recent purchases of tarot decks are now deductible as tax-deductible capital expenses. And if you want to run a professional tarot business, you need more than one deck since you need a variety of decks to pick from for each customer and each query. Just keep in mind that the IRS requires exclusivity; for more information on this issue, go here; this means, for instance, that your personal reading decks that you never use for professional readings won’t count.
Tarot readers require tarot reading cloths, incense, candles, crystals, and gemstones (yep, we’re going with that; we require these as part of our professional services; what, you didn’t know that?) So, yeah, all of theseitems are now suddenly tax deductible in order to effectively give our tarot readings. Everything you need to create a private place for your tarot reading “atmosphere as a qualified reader are currently tax deductible. All of your business’s capital expenses, such as stationary, office supplies, computers, website hosting fees, and Internet service providers, are tax deductible.
Again, the main criterion is exclusivity. It’s acceptable if you don’t use your home Internet service provider exclusively for your tarot business; just figure out what proportion of your usage is related to your tarot business. Keep in mind that reading tarot websites, going to tarot forums, and communicating with clients or potential clients via email are all now considered business expenses. Tarot forum visits and blog reading are examples of market research and professional development. So. What proportion of your home Internet access is used for your tarot business, taking all of this into account? 50 percent or so? Yeah? Then you can deduct 50% of your Internet bill from your taxes.
As a tarot reader, I’m presuming you now have a home office or other area in your home where you conduct business. Home office usage is tax deductible. On how to calculate it precisely, you should speak with a tax expert, but these are the fundamentals. There are two approaches: the usual approach and the streamlined approach.
As of this writing, the simplest option is to deduct up to 300 square feet of your home at a rate of $5.00 per square foot. Consider that your 300 square feet of home are dedicated to your professional tarot practice. You can claim $1,500 in tax-deductible expenses each year. If you only use 150 square feet, the cost is $750.
The standard procedure is to compute the dollar cost of that based on the actual expenses of your home, which you must be able to demonstrate with records, and to establish the percentage (percent) of your home that is used.
Let’s say your lease agreement and rental payments are proof that you are paying $2,000.00 in rent each month for 1,200 square feet of living space. Say you use 150 square feet of the 1,200 square feet for your tarot readings and other professional tarot services. This is the desk area where you conduct your Skype readings, arrange your playing cards, write most of your tarot blog posts (which is a component of your marketing and branding efforts), etc.
Therefore, you’re using 12.5% of your rental property to provide business tarot readings. $250 is 12.5% of your rental fee. Oh, and by the way, these are all offered solely as examples. My math is awful. I could have made a huge calculation error. Please only make the major point of this.
You are free to choose between the standard approach and the streamlined way, according to the IRS. Do the arithmetic for both approaches using your particular business scenario, and then choose the one that will benefit you the best.
Keep in mind that in order to claim a deduction for home office use, the space in question must be used solely for business purposes. It is not valid if not. So you can’t utilize your family room, for instance, especially if your family is using it. The only exception to this rule is if you use that area of your house for storage or business purposes. For instance, you might keep all the equipment necessary for your tarot reading services there, along with your deck of tarot cards. Tax deductions apply to that. See here for further details.
Every time you drive around town for tarot-related services or professional engagements, you should be keeping track of your mileage. The mileage accumulated for traveling to and from tarot classes contributes toward continuing education requirements for tarot professionals. Of course, traveling to and from tarot readings counts. Start keeping track of your mileage while you drive to and from restaurants, pubs, and other locations where you’ll be doing tarot readings to the public. Driving to and from tarot conferences, psychic fairs, and other expert tarot reading events all counts. Parking fees and most other travel expenditures are tax deductible (since you are now a professional tarot reader, you can now deduct hotel stays and plane tickets for attending tarot-related events).
You multiply the miles by 56 cents per mile when it comes to mileage (at least as of this writing; note that the dollar amount changes year to year). This means that if I drove 250 miles to and from a psychic fair where I was providing tarot services, I would be able to deduct $140 from my taxable business expenditures. You should keep a log of your business mileage in your car’s glove box. I’ve got a free download of a sample log table here (you can find it under the Tarot Worksheet Downloads tab on this website).
This is also enjoyable. Entertainment costs that you pay for in the regular course of operating your tarot business are deductible. Most businesspeople and professionals must occasionally entertain clients and potential clients, thus those costs are deductible as entertainment expenses. For tarot professionals, entertainment costs can include a luncheon with a colleague, mentor, or mentee. It might be a gathering of all the local tarot readers at a classy eatery.
Just keep in mind that the cost of the entertainment must be reasonable and that it must be something that the majority of tarot readers would do as part of growing and maintaining their tarot business. There must have been significant conversation about tarot and tarot business at that gathering, and it must be directly relevant to your professional work as a tarot reader. But, seriously. Most tarot readers will find these requirements to be easy to follow.
Remember that all of the expenses you incur for tarot conferences, psychic fairs, tarot professional association dues and other related membership fees, tarot classes, purchasing tarot books (to further your tarot education), and other educational books you purchase to develop your tarot business are tax deductible professional expenses.
Keeping a ton of records is crucial. Save all receipts going forward that have anything to do with your work as a tarot professional. I maintain my data in file folders and a filing cabinet, but I’ve seen small enterprises get by with little more than a shoebox. Whatever functions. To be able to prove every item you’ve claimed as a business expense is the goal. Observe contracts, billing statements, canceled checks, invoices, and receipts.
Keep flyers or well recorded information on the who, what, where, when, and why of a specific expense as a last resort. That is usually appropriate as well. Additionally, if the expense is less than $75, you won’t typically be arrested for lack of documentation.
These tax-deductible company expenses play a big role in explaining how and why so many of these large firms that you hear about and who are supposedly making tons of money lawfully pay no taxes. Even though the majority of tarot professionals won’t be working on that scale, knowing these fundamentals will still be quite helpful.
Who can read tarot cards?
These cards are just bits of paper in the end, says actress and reader Rachel True. She claims that the tarot cards’ ability to assist you in discovering your own personal power is what gives them their charm, beauty, and strength.
How can one grow their tarot intuition?
In order to hear and feel your intuition guide you through the reading, it is crucial to practice being still. I always advise taking a few minutes to hold the deck in your hands and breathe deliberately. Pay attention to your breathing and give thanks to the cards for providing you with direction. Feel your energy grounding and check that your feet are securely planted on the ground. It is really beneficial to imagine growing roots from your feet into Mother Earth.
