Welcome back, Friends and Neighbors! Eternius from Tarot To Go here to offer some late-night thoughts you might be interested in. I figure you might want an update, as it's been a few weeks since I last posted on here.
First off, I'd like to thank everyone who has continued to support Tarot To Go's efforts to be the premier psychic entertainment in Florida (and possibly the entire country). If you have gotten a reading from me, you know of what I speak. If you haven't, what are you waiting for?
Next... I know that we have an appointment app on the website, and it is fully-functional. However, even in this day and age of technology and this Internet thingy, I'm still very old-school. So if you want a reading, or want to schedule one, call me at 352-470-2580 (Google) at least 1 hour before you want the appointment made so I can get ready to spend 110% of my energy and focus on you.
Finally... we do have a "Refer A Friend" program, and it's really simple. 1) Complete one 30-, 45- or 60-minute reading to enter the program. 2) Refer 3 NEW clients, each of whom must complete one 30-, 45- or 60-minute reading (which enters THEM into the program) and MUST tell me you sent them, so I can properly credit your account. 3) After the 3rd completed referral, get your FREE 30-minute reading. No limits on referrals, time period, or free readings.
Oh, one more thing... I want to encourage parties and events to hire Tarot To Go to perform reading entertainment, so we're cutting the price for that category. Instead of $125/hr with a 2-hour minumum, we're dropping it to just $100/hr with a 2-hour minimum. It's easier on your pocketbook, and much easier on our accountant.
I would like to wish you a safe and successful weekend, and if I don't read for you before then, stop by downtown Ocala on May 4th for ArtWalk. Not always sure where they'll put me, but trust me I'm hard to miss -- I'm the good-looking guy with a plain white table. Call me at 352-470-2580 if you need info.
Until then, stay awesome!

Welcome back, friends and neighbors! Eternius Windblade here for Tarot To Go and fully recovered from a crazy birthday weekend. The bad news is that the party video is on YouTube, but the good news is that there's NEW Daily Horoscope categories!
Last week, I introduced you to the General horoscopes which offer advice about Life, the Universe, and Everything Else, courtesy of the Reflections Deck. Well, thanks to your support and encouragement, we've unrolled the Love/Sex/Relationships horoscope courtesy of the Manara Erotica Deck (one of my personal favorites and a constant passion party request), and the LGBT horoscope with the Gay Tarot Deck (a tasteful and compassionate deck that really humanizes its' target audience with excellent art).
The three horoscopes are starting out today, March 28th, and I'd really love to hear your feedback in a couple days after you experience them. I'd also really love to put pics of the cards next to the horoscopes, but unfortunately Webs isn't keen on the type of imagery the Manara Erotica Deck uses (they also aren't very keen on artists posting work on their sites either) so there's not much I can do about that. Sorry guys.
...I can at least do a full 30, 45 or 60 minute reading for you with any of these three decks and others in my arsenal, so you have the opportunity to see these cards for yourself (at least in person or over Skype. The phone doesn't show too well). All you need to do is hit our Appointment App and register for a session (courtesy of the guys at FullSlate and PayPal) of your choice. You can also call me at 352-470-2580 (Google) or email me at Eternius@TarotToGo.net for details or to schedule your reading as well.
Plus, if you get a reading, you automatically qualify for our Refer-A-Reading Program. Call or email me for details.
Well, I wish you the best day so far this week, and I look forward to helping advise or entertain at your next passion party. Until next time, stay awesome!

Welcome back, Friends and Neighbors! Eternius Windblade here for Tarot To Go with a very special and educational blog post inspired by today's daily horoscope card. There's a lot of power in tarot and there's three cards in the Major Arcana that may require a little explaining, if nothing more than to clarify that they're not as bad as they may appear.
And I'm explaining this clarification because I've taught tarot for over two years (and read for almost 10) and I love this part of the class with my students. By the way, at the end of this blog post I'll give you a little contact info if you're even more interested in learning tarot than you were at the beginning of this post.
So in a typical, Rider-Waite-based tarot deck, there are two main parts, a Major Arcana (what I call "archetypal" cards) and a Minor Arcana (what I call "psychotypal" cards). The Minor is the one with the four different suits, each containing pip and court cards. The Major, what we're dealing with today, is the one with 22 benchmark cards that involve locations in a life Path, starting (or ending, depending on the reader) with 0 (The Fool) and ending with 21 (The World).
All fine, well and good so far, right? Okay. To quote a 1940's flick, "Buckle yoah seatbelts, boys, eet's gonna be a velly bumpy ride."
In the Major Arcana are three cards that are probably the most troublesome and fearsome cards: 13 (Death), 15 (the Devil), and 16 (the Tower). Each involves the negative aspects of the Universe, or they appear to, but in actuality they're really not as evil as they appear. Here's why:
13 (Death): This card may seem to indicate physical death, judging from the Reaper on horseback trampling over several people in different stages of life. However, I'd say about 99.99999999999999999% of the time, it really isn't. Life, like Time, is a wheel that turns. As such what is created is destroyed, but what is destroyed is recreated or reborn. To take Alchemy 101 mixed with Einstein, all matter is energy, neither of which can be destroyed or created but only transmuted into the other form. So essentially, the Death card is more about spiritual transformation than personal termination, much like the story of Lazarus in the Bible's New Testament.
15 (the Devil): Probably the most-maligned card in the entire deck, for visually obvious reasons being the Devil and the upside-down pentagram. However, there are two very important religious lessons in this part. First, the Devil is Lucifer (Latin for "Lightbearer", he was God's right-hand until creating animosity amongst the angels. God gave humans each a soul and free will, but not them). He's basically God's way of testing the spiritual strength and resilience of humans (Books of Job and Genesis), and wasn't really evil because he was only doing God's will. Second, the pentagram isn't a satanic symbol -- it's based on Wicca, which doesn't believe in the Devil and the five-pointed star is much akin to the Irish horseshoe over the doorway... each point is an element (water, earth, air, fire, and Spirit), and if the pentacle is upright then all elements were in balance, but an upside-down pentacle simply indicates an imbalance of elements.
16 (the Tower): Okay, so it looks a lot like 9/11, but it goes back several thousand years to the Tower of Babel in the Bible's Old Testament. Long story short, the ancient city of Babel was united, one language, et cetera, and they decided to overextend their glory by building the world's tallest tower that would pierce Heaven itself. Naturally, God wasn't having any of it, so he smashed the Tower of Babel and turned everyone to speaking different languages. Nobody understood each other (hence the word "babble", or "speaking in a nonsensical manner"), and shortly thereafter the city of Babel was not a place you'd want to consider stopping by if you wanted to live. So the Tower card can indicate a tear-down and realigning of personal prides and possessiveness.
I've heard a lot of stories from other readers about entertainment facilities and events that specifically demand these three cards be removed from the deck being used, to prevent scaring the crap out of customers. But what amazes a lot of people is that not only does this seriously limit the true power of a tarot deck, but there is a LOT of Biblical precedence in these three cards. In fact, as far as I know pretty much every card in the Rider-Waite decks involves some Biblical reference (plus there's evidence the Phoenecians, Sumerians, and Egyptians had something akin to tarot, albeit pertaining to their specific cultural references). So when a religious leader or pundit says that tarot is evil and should be destroyed, nothing could be farther from the truth, at least if the tarot is used in the Creede: "And it Harm None, Do as Ye Wilt."
Okay, so you've gotten through your lesson for the day, so here's my deal. I mentioned that I teach tarot and how to read the cards. Well, if you're interested in learning cartomancy (which is card-reading's official taxonomic phrase), email me or call me at 352-470-2580 and I'll be happy to explain the curriculum, materials and costs. It's intensive, extensive, but by the end of the course you will have a very strong understanding of the cards, the meanings, the history, and several spreads to start reading at psychic fairs or as a personal reader. I prefer to do it in person, however I can do Skype as well.
Well, that's all for now, so enjoy the weekend and I'll see you on the flipside. Until then, may your 8 of Cups become The Chariot.

Hail and Welcome, World Wide Wonders! Eternius Windblade here with some long-awaited news you might be interested in. I apologize for the silence over the last several weeks, but with a move to North Florida and organizing myself up here with all the amazing people and the fresh air, it's been insane.
So here's the official, uncensored, cool news that if you follow me on Facebook (check my Links page), you'd've heard mentioned real brief.
I am proud to announce that I will be expected to do a 1-hour workshop, "Beginning Tarot Reading", on March 17th from 11AM-12PM at the 2nd Annual Southeast Witches Ball 2012 in Clearwater, FL. In this workshop, I will reveal some amazingly simple and inspirational tips and tricks on how to learn, practice, and grow into a powerful reader.
Then again, 1 hour wouldn't seem enough, as I tend to completely geek on this.
This workshop is an honor for me, and a bit of pride, because I've done so much work over the past 9 years. Not only have I read for Hollywood, FL's ArtWalk and Gilda's Club as an entertainer, I've familiarized with at least fifteen decks of different themes and topics, taught for two years, and also ran the South Florida Tarot Meetup Group for a year at the Spider Web. So when the organizers said, "Hey!" I said "Yea!"
If you are interested in learning more, or even being a part of a tradition, click here to check out Southeast Witches Ball 2012. Just to let you know... 1) if you want to buy stuff there, because it's a public park, you'll have to convert your dollars to tickets (different colors for different denominations) plus the prices will be in whole-dollar amounts that already include tax; and 2) if you decide to attend the potluck supper, please be neighborly and bring a covered dish to share; and 3) have a great weekend!
As always, I am available for readings by appointment via the wonderful and easy-to-use Appointment App under "About TTG" (thanks to the guys at FullSlate and PayPal), email me at Eternius@TarotToGo.net, or call me at 754-223-9255. But I honestly hope you get to make it to the Witches Ball on March 17th, from what I understand it will be epic.
Until then... Blessed Be!

Welcome to the Year of Changes, my name is Eternius Windblade and I'll be your reader at Tarot To Go! There's a lot of really cool stuff you've got to check out and you get to check it out right flippin' here, right jumpin' now! So sit down, grab your Blackberry, iPhone or Droid, and pay attention because if you miss this news... you'll just have to catch it later right here too!
Okay, so here goes....
First off, a huge thank-you to the Goddess Store for the long partnership we've had with them. In fact, we personally knew them when they opened 10 years ago. Over those years we've performed readings at a lot of their events and weekends, and it's been a blast. Unfortunately, due to some business philosophies they're changing to that do not fit our philosophy of "high levels of quality service every time", we must bid them a fond farewell and full wishes for their future successes. We understand that it's a business decision, that's life, and we hold absolutely no grudges.
You may have noticed a complete revamp and update on Tarot To Go's website, including the brand spanky new Appointment Assistant in the "About Us" section. Courtesy of the guys at FullSlate, you can pick what type of reading you want, how long a reading, and when you want the reading if the time is available to do so. It's super easy, super convenient, and works extremely well with the boys at PayPal, so you know it's secure. Now you don't have to wait til I get my first cup of coffee in the morning to schedule your reading, you can do it at 3AM in YOUR pajamas while I'm sleeping in mine! So if you haven't already, please check it out and give me the now-improved ability to service your needs.
Last but certainly not least....
I would like to personally invite you to join the Go Team. Yes, you. And you. And you, you, you, and yes, even you too. "Okay, Eternius, this sounds fun, how do I join the Go Team," you ask?
Schedule and get a reading. Right after your reading, you automatically qualify for our "Refer a Friend" program. If you refer three, count them, 3 customers, and each of them gets at least a 30-minute reading (tarot or rune) and they tell me you sent them, after the third referral reading I'll call you up and say, "Hey, when do you want your FREE 30-minute reading?"
The best part is, your membership in the "Refer a Friend" program is absolutely FREE, has no limits on how many people YOU refer that get a reading, and the people YOU refer can also refer THEIR friends too, and THEY still get the chance to have a FREE 30-minute reading! And so on and so forth. The only thing is that you cannot transfer YOUR membership to someone else, but hey, we make it so easy you won't have to transfer it... or want to transfer it!
Either way, you still get a professional, top-quality tarot or rune reading either in person (if within a 15-mile radius), over the phone (within the USA) or over Skype (best for international clients). And it's powered by PayPal, so you know your money will be safe. Best of all, Tarot To Go will NEVER sell your info to anyone, ever, even if we were offered one... meeeeeee-llion... dollahs.
So... what are you waiting for? The future starts now! Join the Go Team! Get a reading! Refer a friend for bonus readings! How can you lose??? If you have any questions, you can email me at Eternius@TarotToGo.net or call me at 754-223-9255. I'm looking forward to being your reader... it's in the cards.....

Greetings Chat Fanatics! Eternius here with Karma getting ready for an amazing Thanksgiving weekend with friends and family over a huge table full of potential three-month's-worth of leftovers. We've had a great time doing these episodes of "The Shaman Goddess Show" for you, and the response you've given us simply makes us as warm and gooey as Mom's sausage and cheese breakfast loaf.
We've been a little quiet lately, and I guess I should probably tell you why, being that you're all our mostest favoritest fans in the world. Well, I am sad to announce the passing of our longtime member of the family, Daisy, who was always happy to get peanut butter on the nose and (much to everyone's olfactoral displeasure) Dad's spaghetti sauce. Daisy was a wonderful dalmatian/springer mix that we had gotten for the previous dog, Mako, who was on her way to Elysium with cancer. She passed last Monday, and we hope that wherever she is, there's plenty of squirrels and lizards.
So now we're back and doing our thing with "The Shaman Goddess Show", kicking off the holiday season right in "TGIT -- Is Your Turkey Thankful?" On Thursday, November 24th from 2-3PM EST, join my esteemed cohost Karma and I as we take your calls live and toll-free at 1-347-884-9360 or through our chatroom. We look forward to hearing your stories of family, friendship, and festivities, but we also will share stories of survival through hard times. I happen to have a three-generation story involving the Great Depression of 1929, and it will amaze you how bad things were, but that people still pulled through. Definitely a Great American Story you'll just have to hear to believe. Plus if you ask really nice, we'll even do a free one-card reading for you on the air!
December's shows will be a bit different than you may expect. Then again, Stars and Stones, even I don't know what to expect and that's what makes doing them so fun! Starting December 1st, every Thursday we'll be doing end-of-the-year resolutions, thankfuls for 2011, and lessons and wisdoms learned from the past 12 months. And starting December 5th, every Monday we'll perform a horoscope for three signs for the year ahead. Please keep in mind that you always have free will, so you can make the most of what we'll be sharing! You can always call 1-347-884-9360 or email me with your thoughts that we can share on the following episodes.
Last but certainly not least, a huge "thank you" to everyone who has been supporting us on the ground floor. We've gotten to a bigger studio with better coffee, connected with a lot of different businesses and organizations, and we haven't finished yet! Before the year is through we should have some great industry news, but with some effort we may have some shop news for your holiday needs even sooner. So stay tuned, the best is yet to come!
We'll see you on Thanksgiving, come join the Shaman Goddess Family from 2-3PM EST, and don't forget the cranberry sauce! Because yes... you can!
