Cross that palm with a shiny dime. Quarter? Master Card? Platinum?
The Season of the Witch is approaching, and something about this time of year always makes people in my social circles seek out tarot readings or other forms of divination. Sometimes even a brave few who are wanting love charms or to hex a rival.
I have never read or done spell work for money, mostly because I keep a low profile in my everyday life. When I was in college, people would come to my apartment and share their liquor in exchange for a tarot reading, which I thought was most fair. One fella even offered to clean my apartment...shirtless. Natch, I thought that was fair as well.
But at some point I realized how draining it can be to have constant requests for divination or spell work without getting some kind of compensation for it. Spell work especially can be a major drain on one's resources, and an intense round of divination can be very taxing on my system.
So I look to you all for guidance.
What better way to ask a question of some of the most awesome Magicians in the world, than to do it via this blog. So for those of you who read for others and charge for it, what do you think is an appropriate fee?
