Readathon Tarot Reading Giveaway

So, round about, say, 3:00 in the morning on Readathon, I'm thinkin' I'll need a little pick-me-up. And that, my dear friends, is where you come in. I have an old hobby of Tarot card reading, not one I'm TERRIBLY talented at, but one that's fun to do anyway. So, would any of guys like to have your tarot read late, late night on Readathon day?  Here's your chance! Enter in the comments below, for your opportunity to have your fortune told by the Great Jasini! ;)

I was originaly going to put this up ON the day of Readathon, but I'm posting it today, and will close the contest about 10 pm tomorrow. The reason for this is really simple - I'm not actually psychic, not even a little bit, so if I'm going to read your cards, I have to know you, at least a little bit. I am not going to place any restrictions on the contest, because most of the people who would be entering today or tomorrow, I hope, are people I know somewhat.

So, here's the guidelines of Jason's Tarot Giveaway:
1) I'm not psychic. Please don't make like I'm psychic. :D
2) You must provide a question - this is the most important part. The question must be open-ended, and is best asking for elucidation and information, rather than predictions and hard facts - predictions and hard facts are both notoriously unreliable, and actually pretty useless. Bad Questions: Who am I going to marry? How many kids will I have? Will my business succeed? Better Questions: What can I do to improve my romantic chances? What can I focus on so I will be a good mother/father? Is this a good time for me to start a business?
3) I very seldom have clearcut answers. I'm like the elves: Do not ask an elf for advice, for they shall say neither yea or nay. ;).
4) In connection with number 1, it is very helpful if you can write up a few paragraphs telling me information about your question. Example: "My question is, what can I do to improve my romantic chances? I'm a young heterosexual female, living in a large city, but I have a tendency to be overly quiet in social situations. My last few boyfriends have been kind of domineering and selfish. I'd really like to meet someone nice, and understanding, who can accept me for who I am. I really like (insert kind of person, here), and do not like (insert kind of person here)."
5) You do not have to insert your details or questions in the comments. You can email them to me if you win.
6) Please let me know, also, if you want me to make this a public, or private reading. Either way is fine, I just don't want to pop it up on the blog if it's somethign that will embarrass you. :)

Anyway, like I said, it's just for fun, and I promise I really will do the reading in the middle of the night, which should... erm... add a special something to my lucidity... ;). To enter, just leave a comment below, and just for fun, let me know any experience you have with fortune telling (I've actually never had my tarot or fortune told by anyone besides myself, so I assure you, this isn't a contest for experience!). I'll pick the winner randomly tomorrow evening :). Chris, I'm going to do your reading today, so you can't enter!

I think you should let Chris enter with a different question...

No need to enter me. I can get my cards read by you any time. :D

Amanda said...

Ugh, I hate when I forget to subscribe!

Eva said...

lol! We've already discussed how I love tarot. :) But I'm always the ones doing the reading; it'd be intersting to be on the other side of the spread. So I'll enter myself!

Debi said...

Oh, oh, oh...this is sooooo fun!!! I am off to contemplate my question...

Jason Gignac said...

Yes, Amanda, you too are disqualified for the drawing ;).

Ms Eva - Alright, I'll put you down, madame. I've never had mine read either - honestly it would be a really odd experience, and I imagine totally change the way I read other's cards.

Ms Debi - Definitely have you on the list :).

Julie said...

Having never had my tarot read and not knowing much about it either, I'm quite curious. So, Great Jasini, count me in! :)
Now, off to dream up that question which I suppose you want me to e-mail you, right?

Ms Julie - glad you're in :). No need to send a question yet. I will let you know if you win, then you can email me your question :).
