My Tarostrology Blog!

This is a quick announcement to say that I have another blog on the go! I know I have been neglecting this blog for the past few months, but I fully intend to start blogging here again when I get back into the blogging mode. I still absolutely adore this whole layout and the feel of this blog, I love it very much and it would break my heart to see it abandoned.


However, since opening up my Etsy shop (selling Astrology guided Tarot readings) and uploading to a new channel, I decided I wanted to start a blog that I could post regularly about Astrology, Tarot and Astronomy. Although I do have tabs for those subjects here, I don't feel comfortable writing too in depth about them because as the title of this blog suggests, it's fashion and beauty related, and the addition of personal posts and random interests seems okay, but I think too much science and esoteric talk might make me lose some followers! 

Now I want to start focusing more on writing about my passions outside of fashion and beauty. I know many of you who read this blog are following me for the Astrology stuff, so now you have a place to go specifically for that!  

I have some exciting series planned for Tarostrology blog, including one which I uploaded the first post to today, When Planets Moonwalk. Everyone here knows my whole family is obsessed with Michael Jackson, so I had to throw that one in there. The other two series I have planned are For The Love of Astronomy, where I will be writing about the planets from a more astronomical stand point, and Intro to Astrology, which is going to accompany my Intro to Astrology video series that will be coming soon to my spirituality channel.

I have also started a new Facebook page which you should also out if Tarostrology is your kind of thing. 

And on another note, I recently updated my Instagram app on my Android, resulting in me loosing a big handful of followers. There must have been some bug as many people have complained about the same thing happening to them.

My First Spirituality Video!

I've just uploaded my first video to my spirituality channel, and I thought I would just post it up here too. I won't be posting all of my videos from that channel on my blog since, however I thought anyone who is curious about my spiritual path may be interested in this intro video. You can find my channel here: http://youtube.com/PaganImperium - feel free to subscribe if this is your kinda thing.

Free Tarot Readings - Guinea Pigs Wanted! [CLOSED]

For the past few weeks I've had my head stuck in the Tarot books and have been studying the cards intensely. I first became interested in Tarot over a decade ago but found the popular Rider-Waite-Smith deck rather uninspiring and a bit boring for my taste. The images and overall style just didn't resonate with me. So I bought the Thoth deck. After spending time with the deck I decided I couldn't connect with the images and so gave up on Tarot altogether. In 2008 one of my closest friends bought a deck of Tarot cards, The Beginners Guide to Tarot by Julian Sharman-Burke with illustrations by Giovanni Caselli. The deck followed the traditional Rider-Waite symbolism closely but with a more softer, attractive feel. Although I didn't feel a strong pull toward the deck, I found the imagery pleasant to look at, and after another friend bought the deck, I bought one for myself so that we were all able to learn using the same deck and book. I read for myself and close friends on and off for the past few years, and even though I found the deck very easy to use and the book extremely useful, I was still on the hunt for a deck I could really bond with.


I stumbled upon the Shadowscapes deck recently, and have been besotted with it ever since I saw the images online. This deck goes everywhere with me, even to bed! In a short space of time I have quickly connected with my deck, and I couldn't have wished for a stronger bond. I feel like the images were made for me, they were exactly what I had been searching for since I was a teenager. The light, airy feel is perfectly suited to my taste, and I enjoy the totem animals and the oriental feel.

I've decided to start taking requests for free readings for the next few weeks to see if this is something I would like to do in the future for extra income, or whether I will just read for friends and family as a hobby. Before I show you the spreads that will be available from me, I will talk about how I use Tarot.

I am still in the process of figuring out my personal style and code of ethics when it comes to readings, so you will need to be aware of this when taking a free reading with me. However I'd like to make it clear that I do not believe I have any psychic abilities, rather I use the cards in such a way that will give you guidance and advice in the areas of your life that you seek them in. Personal and spiritual development are at the forefront of my goals for my readings, and I hope to be able to give insightful readings that will empower you. 

I am not comfortable reading for the absent third party who have not requested a reading, therefore when asking about past relationships, I am happy to help you work through your issues and concerns but I will not focus heavily on the other person. Doing this can be both unhelpful and unhealthy, but working on your own happiness, self-esteem and confidence is the best way to get the most out of your reading.

Tarot is a useful tool for delving deep into your subconscious to find the answers that your conscious mind is unable to answer, and I will do my best to convey this information to you via the cards.

If desired I can use Astrology to assist in your reading, and you will need to provide me with your place, date, and if known, exact time of birth. I am adept at Astrology and will be able to provide insights, answers and guidance that you would not normally get from a Tarot reading alone.

If my style resonates well with you and this sounds like the type of reading you would be interested in then please scroll down to view the spreads I am providing, with a little information about each one. At the end of this post you will find my contact details should you wish to take me up on my offer of a free reading. 

1. General Tarot Reading
I use the popular Celtic Cross spread but have customised some of the positions to make it more relevant to my readings. You can use this reading to help you come to decisions, make choices, find direction or get a perspective on your life journey. 

2. Lessons of The Zodiac Tarot Reading
This reading will provide you with one piece of key advice or lesson in each of the 12 areas of life, corresponding to the 12 Houses of a Natal Chart, plus one overall advice card. To get a more in depth reading, make sure you provide your birth details (date, time & place).

3. Self Love Tarot Spread
Despite how we may sometimes think and feel about ourselves, there is always much to love once we strip away the ego and really look within. This spread which was designed by me will help you to see five of your strengths and most loveable traits. 

4. Finding Love Tarot Spread
This spread is designed to help you explore what kind of love is right for you at this present moment and how best to find it. The most important love of all is the love you provide for yourself, but if you are on a quest to find a partner, give this spread a whirl. 

5. Divining The Self Tarot Spread
A lovely spread to help you look within in order to get to know and understand yourself and your motivations.

Before I go I just wanted to make you all aware of my new spirituality channel where I will be discussing Astrology, Tarot and belief systems. Please subscribe to http://youtube.com/PaganImperium

I'm sorry but I've received a huge amount of interest in my free readings so I am no longer taking them. Please check back soon as I will be opening an Etsy shop very soon where you can buy a reading for as little as £4. Thanks & much love <3
