When someone enters your home, do they know?

Recommended Posts

Since my new shelf by my computer, they will know almost as soon as they walk in the house. My tower is a beast--it has a basement (first thing people notice) and my tarot shelf is next to it so you can't miss it.  The other day a friend of ours brought over his new girl to meet us and I was sitting in my reading corner and she walked over to me and saw my cards around me and thought it was so cool.  But when I opened my medicine cabinet filled with tuck box tarot cards she became really excited.  I also have a little sugar skull display with the Santa Muerte deck foremost on the shelf that you can't miss.

That’s is awesome! Yet another unsuspecting victim lured into the amazing world of tarot :bubble_bhehe:

Nope.

 

The majority of my Tarot stuff is on the 2nd floor. One has to be a good friend to step inside the room (bedroom) that they reside in. Lol.

In my home therapy room - I do have the ShadowScapes Tarot on display in a wrack next to the health leaflets. Clients only notice if they're really looking around. Or when I pull it out and say... "well - shall we ask the cards for a suggestion or alternative view?..."

Lee, your wreath is wonderful. I've observed as time goes on, most people don't much care what someone else does unless in their face. 

In the years I was seriously studying, there were tarot and other esoteric books all over the house, every room where I might have a couple minutes to pick one up. 

The decks and companion books have always been in the open in the office though, where I use them, and like to have everything in handy reach. 

I've had very christian focused cousins, and friends who are Jehovah Witness all sleep in the office, no one has left in the middle of the night, or expressed interest of any kind. Probably because I'm respectful to them of what they believe although I personally think they are unhinged ...

But also we have to feel safe, there are places in the world where it could be problematic in future if someone noticed it in your home.[/quote][/quote]

 

I live in a little town in Texas(!)

And I have stuff out all the time. It's never caused problems.
People know I read cards, and I'm sure there is a wacky faction that thinks I'm in league with Satan. But most people don't care. My house is directly behind a botanica, and a lot of people around here do readings, limpias, etc.
I a not a Big Deal. 😉

So it's a personal decision if you feel you want to express it. But I do still believe that your home is where you can express your personality and interests! How many people have giant Buddha's in their home and have no interest in studying Buddhism and are not Buddhists

😂 We should express ourselves if we can!

 


Why would anyone have giant Buddhas and no interest in Buddhism? That's crazy.
I have a bronze Tara and a big porcelain Kuan Yin. And while I don't fully commit to ANY religion (theocracy is a major threat these days!), I do understand what they're about (and am not too proud to call on them in a pinch, lol!)

If I wasn't into them at all, I wouldn't have them taking up the limited space in my home, and I certainly would never have committed to all that dusting!

PS - How do I get the BB codes to function correctly here? The quote/end quote function is all messed up. :(

You have to press return until the frame gets cut off and you can type underneath it. If that makes sense? And, welcome back, by the way! 😉

I *think* I just did it.
Thank you - and thank you!

Most of us worry too much about what others think of us.

One time my mother tried to say something about Tarot and Devil Worship. I just rolled my eyes at her and asked if she knew me. Am I stupid? Am I evil? Am I easily led by fads? Did she really think pictures on little pieces of paper were going to harm my soul? Then I threw her a dollar and asked why we could all but worship those little pictures but the ones I had were evil? She has gone to a don't ask don't tell, but I know she sees the decks in my purse, or laying on the bed. I always have at least one with me.

 

If you know me, you know I study tarot. When people ask what I do, I tell them. In fact, I often overshare. 😋
