Tarot for Tat

Hey, ever heard that saying tit for tat? Wikipedia says it’s like “reciprocal altruism” in biology. Whoa. That means:

a behavior whereby an organism acts in a manner that temporarily reduces its fitness while increasing another organism’s fitness, with the expectation that the other organism will act in a similar manner at a later time

Well this is tarot for tat and you can be a part of it! You won’t even have to reduce your fitness temporarily to do so, I promise!

Basically here’s the deal: I’m offering a limited number of 3-card and 10-card readings at discounted rates to help me achieve my goal of getting my second tattoo!

All the juicy details follow:

Although I’ve been reading the tarot for 12 years, my online practice is just starting out and needs help to grow, thrive and flourish. Think of it like the Ace of Pentacles. I need your nurturing, folks, in order to make my practice shine!

This gorgeous Ace of Pentacles is from Mary McClelland's Star Tarot, still a work in progress.

Also, let me share with you a story of my journey. Last year for my birthday I got my first tattoo. It symbolized much for me, but in short it sums up a new philosophy on life and the survival through struggle and challenge. You can read The Story of Leggerezza here and see the process of me getting tattooed!

So, I got to thinking as one often does when in Page of Swords mode, which is who I’ve been characterized as in this period by the brilliant Spike of Spike Tarot, who recently did a lovely, insightful and thorough reading for me (and who I will soon be getting on the blog for you guys!).

And this is what came out of it. Tarot for Tat is a way we can be “reciprocally altruistic”!

I want to get my second tattoo for my birthday this year, which is May 1. My second tattoo is going to be a Sailor Jerry black panther. I’m a single mom of three preschoolers, as well as a mystic seeking truth, a coordinator for international study abroad programs, and an expat living abroad. The black panther symbolizes so much for me, so many of the multiple roles I play and various hats I’m called to wear in this life.

Of all the panthers, the black panther has the greatest mysticism associated with it. It is a symbol of the mother, the dark moon and the power of the night. The black panther encourages us to understand the shadow powers available to us all, to acknowledge these powers and to eliminate our fears of the darkness. When the black panther totem appears in your life, it is also a symbol of releasing your passions, and starting a new phase of your life. A phase in which you are discovering your desires, and living your dreams.

For the month of April, I’m offering a limited number (15) of 3-card readings for just $15 (regularly $25).

I’m also offering a limited number (7) of 10-card readings for just $35 (regularly $50).

If you snag one of these discounted readings, you’ll be contributing to my black panther tattoo fund! And I’ll be using my experience, passion, and intuition, just like the panther herself, to use the tarot as a tool for helping you gain insight about yourself or a current issue in your life.

Help me grow my business, get my tattoo, and come out of it with insight and clarity about yourself and your life! Pass on this post to anyone you think would be interested and let’s see if I can reach my goal!
