""As a beginner I would charge $5-10, to start with for a 15 min reading."
Just IME if I see a sign advertising any sort of reading for [x] amount of money for [x] amount of time I'll turn away and not come back. I think the price…"
"Everything Jul said. And, just my opinion, I would never pay over $20 for a Tarot reading. For a full oracular session with trance and stuff, yeah, I would fork out money, especially if I knew the person was skilled. But for a Tarot reading? If…"
"On all counts: don't care too much. It isn't relevant to my life and what I'm doing right now, so I don't bother with any afterdeath concerns. Whatever happens, happens, and I don't dwell on it like...at all. Not because…"
""Granted a lot of our materials are natural (gemstones, herbs)..."
Those are actually really destructive to the planet - unsustainable farming and disastrous mining aren't exactly good for the planet."
Because I stopped caring. The quicker you stop complaining about it the quicker you can move yourself away from behavior you don't like. If you don't like the group you are with now, find another one (there are plenty online).…"
"I don't think it's quite appropriate for you to do a ritual for this person. It is their choice to stay in the toxic relationship, and while I lean more with Heathens on the idea of fate rather than free-will, I still think it's…"
""I believe the ancient cultures had a system of checks and balances to prevent either gender from being too dominant."
I don't really think that's true...ancient Rome and Greece weren't really big on 'women's…"
"I really don't have any good advice on this. If I wanted to stop I would pray a lot and try to get myself in as calm an environment as possible if I was stressed out from the withdrawals... I started smoking last December, but I have a rather…"
""Your friend who is a MesoAmerican Recon definitely needs to identify her practice as such, due to the sacrificial nature, as do other less-common Paths. More education is needed to identify the less common Paths for others - so they…"
""Labels are merely a convenience, at best, serving to help those who wish to worship/work magick together to find others who use the same symbolism."
Actually, they also serve as protection to people with different practices that…"
""I'm nearly convinced the sexes have equality these days..."
As you said, in your corner...but we shouldn't forget that people are still trying to legislate women's bodies (with legislation that shies away from the word…"
"Gardner did create the Wiccan Laws, so...the entire thing was 'manipulated' by him. If you're saying he inserted his personal viewpoint and opinions and feelings that we, in our age, find less-than-savory or not living up to current…"
""The issue is: what can you say to someone who doesn't practice about it when questioned?"
You give the spiritual and magical reasons for the practice, because I highly doubt everyone has the same motivations and inclinations that…"
"I don't see how his motivation matters a whole lot (yet again). Seems more gossipy than anything important. I think the 'energy can't pass through clothes' is...silly, but working skyclad was, from what I know, also common in…"
