LIST OF READING SERVICES
Concise Three Card Tarot Reading
Do you have a specific question that you want a quick, concise answer to? A concise tarot reading uses three cards that will offer a snapshot of the most pertinent concerns and energies surrounding a specific situation. Typical three-card readings given in person or by video will run about 10 minutes and written readings are 1-2 pages in length.
Classic Five Card Tarot Reading
Either a Simple Cross or an Essential Keys spread utilizing five cards will offer a well-rounded understanding of a specific situation. This reading can be used generally if you have no question in mind and will offer a sense of where you are on your life path right now, or it can be used for a specific question. Typical five-card readings given in person or by video will run about 15 minutes and written readings are 2-3 pages in length.
Celtic Cross Tarot Reading
Whether you have a specific question or you want a general reading, the traditional Celtic Cross is a tried and true method in tarot divination. The Celtic Cross is said to date back to the 19th century when esoteric tarot began to take form. The spread begins with the selection of a signifier card based on your date of birth, which then anchors the center of a cross, a smaller cross of cards over your signifier and then a larger cross of four cards around you, and finally, a column of cards to the right for a total of ten cards, with ten being the Qabalistic key to the Tree of Life, unlocking revelations found in the veil between the physical and metaphysical realms. Typical Celtic Cross readings given in person or by video will run about 30 minutes and written readings are about 5 pages in length.
General Life Path Reading
These readings are great for birthdays, New Year’s, and other major holidays when you are thinking about your life path, where you have been, where you are going, and what might be up ahead. You can tailor these readings for a fixed period of time, such as the coming month, the coming year, or the coming five years. General life path readings offer an overview snapshot that can help you see what you might not be seeing about yourself and to help you make important adjustments to your life path so you can head in the direction of your desired future.
In-Depth Specific Question Reading
Do you have one specific question that requires an in-depth reading? For example, if you have been feeling stagnation in your career path and wish to consult the tarot for a spiritual roadmap to guide your way toward professional advancement, then an in-depth specific question reading would reveal to you what you most need to know. If you have not been experiencing the best of luck in love and matters of the heart and want to know why, then an in-depth specific question reading can help you to reposition yourself for better romantic opportunities. A tarot spread consisting of 8 and 12 cards will be selected and customized specifically to you and your question. Plan for approximately an hour for such a reading.
Life Purpose Reading
The Life Purpose readings integrate numerology. First, per your date of birth, your Essence Card will be calculated, which will offer you insights into your innate disposition, strengths, and weaknesses. A quick name analysis can give you a sense of your most prominent character traits. Your Decisive Age and other basic personality analysis will be provided per your date of birth, followed by a full tarot reading session consisting of The Black Rising Collective, Inc‘s signature 9 card spread plus a final oracle card draw.
Depth Diagnostics Reading
Two tarot decks are used for the Depth Diagnostics reading. The Depth Diagnostics reading can be used to answer a specific question or for a general reading. It will determine exactly what area of your life to focus on for your goals to manifest, what course of action to take, and then a full reading spread on the inquiry at hand. Details and deconstruction of your life path is performed with the second tarot deck. The reading ends with a six-month projection to offer a general sense of what is up ahead.
The Opening of the Key
The Opening of the Key divination method has its roots in the esoteric divinatory traditions of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and is a five-step process that integrates Hermetic Qabalah, Western astrology, numerology, and elemental dignities. A written Opening of the Key reading takes a full day to prepare and covers insights and details into all aspects of your life path, able to express the landscape of your life path and also answer your specific questions all in one reading session.
For a nominal fee, any reading service listed above can be augmented with an add-on. Please discuss any desired add-ons to your reading request prior to the commencement of the reading. Add-ons are at your option only and are not necessary for a complete reading. Any service offered above is a complete and comprehensive service by itself. The Black Rising Collective, Inc. will never pressure you for add-ons. Yet these additional services can add invaluable insights that can enhance the original reading service. Please note that some listed add-ons are already included in the original reading service, such as the Essence Card, Life Path Number, and Decisive Age in the Life Purpose Reading or the Six Month Projection in the Depth Diagnostics Reading.
ADD ON: Essence Card
As an add-on to your reading, you can order an additional write-up of your Essence Card per your date of birth and what that card says about your innate character, disposition, strengths, and weaknesses. The Essence Card can offer insights into your personality’s essence.
ADD ON: Adjustment Card
A final card can be drawn after your reading to show you how to change your future. If the probable outcome indicated in your reading is not favorable to you, have an adjustment card drawn to see how you can alter your life path and what corresponding Affirmations your Adjustment Card has to offer you.
ADD ON: Your Life Path Number and Decisive Age
As an add-on to your reading, you can order a write-up of your Life Path Number and your Decisive Age, which is derived from your date of birth. Your Life Path Number reveals your life purpose and the thesis of the collective lessons you are to learn in order to progress closer to what will most fulfill you and bring you meaning. The nine Life Paths are said to represent the nine primary life purposes. Find out what your life purpose is, what your strengths and weaknesses are based on your personal numerology, and the Decisive Age that such a life purpose begins to manifest.
ADD ON: Supplemental Oracle Card Reading
Sometimes a tarot reading will highlight an obstacle, tension, conflict, or area that needs improvement and after the reading, you may want additional clarification on that specific point as a follow-up to the main reading you received. A supplemental oracle card reading can offer the affirmations, insights, and additional information you need to clarify that point. A deck, either tarot or oracle, will be selected intuitively to best suit the follow-up inquiry.
ADD ON: Six Month Projection
In addition to a reading service, you can request an additional spread to provide a six-month projection of what is up ahead. While the future is never fixed and predictive accuracy cannot be guaranteed, the six-month projection does offer insights into the metaphysical energies surrounding a given person, environment, or situation that can help you better plan your future accordingly.
