For those who read tarot, I have a questions about ethics/morals while reading

Just a thing I thought about asking your opinion about.

Do you personally think it is wrong for someone who reads tarot to set up a little "shop" on Halloween/Samhain and do readings for people, charging them a small fee (like $1 per reading, or something like that), but actually giving them a real reading and not just making something up to get money?

  • Nope. I worked at a few haunted houses were we had a reader... I see it as you are preforming a service, a service which someone could do themselves, I don't see anything wrong with charging...

    I think as long as you're doing what they pay you to do - in this case the reading - and you let them know this is "for entertainment purposes" there isn't anything wrong with it...

  • I personally think it would be better to set up a shop and let people donate... kinda like tips... then you aren't messing with the energy involved with it.

  • I am personally, ethically opposed to $charging$ and/or requesting $payment$ for any metaphysical services. Too easy for the Reader to, in a way, abuse the Querant monetarily.  (Like this guy.) 

    Gratuity...that's a different story. Then the Querant is freely choosing what monetary gift (if at all) they wish to give. 

    So in other words:  charging a fee = not OK, setting out a tip jar = OK

  • well I think most people who pay to get thier tarots read are just doing it for fun especailly if they are doing it on halloween for a dollar. You get what you pay for I guess.

  • Nope why would that be wrong. I do have a problem with the make up ones though.
