Linda says all spiritual things should be free, otherwise even if you have a gift you lose it if you charge for it.

I am very good at tarot reading. I used to not charge but then I had many people asking and as I was dedicating so much time to it, my friends told me I should at least ask for donation.

So I just ask people to give me whatever they want or can. I just say if it helped you give me whatever you feel its apropiate, if it didnt help you then dont give me anything.

But people give me quite a lot.
I don't know if I am doing the right thing.

I do offer my time and its almost like a psicotherapy , I spend 1 to 2 hours with every person, but still there is an spiritual component which are the cards, and I don't know if its ok to receive money for it.

what do you think?

Yeah, a man needs to eat. But I wouldn't do it for money tho, its more like a gift.

I agree it should be for free, but I guess donations are ok. So long as the person doesn't have to donate, even if the reading does resonate.

Will agree with what Ayelet said here.

If you're needing to ask that question to begin with?, then there must be some kind of spiritual red flag raised in your conscience. To violate 'that', would be wrong for you.


I have given people in my locale spontaneous astrology advice. I offer it freely. It provides good-will, and I hope a nice first-taste introduction.

Years ago, there was woman cashing me out at a local metaphysical shop. She knew I'd been into astrology. She had just paid (good sum of money) for an astrology reading. She hadn't understood what the man had said. (I 'knew' the pushy-personality of the man she obtained the reading from, and, I wasn't surprised by her saying that.) She pulled out her chart to show me, and asked what he meant?

Based on what he told her, I was easily able to point to it. I explain 'how and where' he came up with what he said. I expanded it to include date-range for upcoming changes. Surprised her with true unusual information about her vocational life! {{Cool, that it turned out to be true-- validation for me}}.

I added to a clearer understanding, that the pushy-man was amiss to explain to her.

I NEVER thought anything it. It pleased me to help this woman see how information was derived, in chart-readings.

I was finally leaving the store after loitering a while longer, when she noticed and hollered for me to wait.

When she reappeared, she said she was "grateful" for the reading I had just done for her, and that she had just "paid" for me to have a Kirlian Photography Reading by the psychic employed in the shop that day.

I was stunned!!
So Blessed that she would do that for me.

People don't usually show 'gratitude'?
It's a pleasure when they do.

I don't charge.
I wouldn't turn down a free-will Donation.

When TRUE Donations (not aggressively-demanded FEE under the false-name of donations??) are easily surrendered, they are soaked with Higher Goodness, Grace, and appreciation.

"God loves the Cheerful Giver!" .. that includes both parties, in giving-receiving relationship.

Not everyone can afford to give money--
but you will make their life perhaps a little better for what you did for them.

I love helping people.
It's extra wonderful when they give-back.

IMO if having a job (6th house) means using your talents and gifts (5th house) to be at service to others, then why should spiritual services not be paid? Spiritual people also needs to eat, live in the physical world and they dedicate their time not only when they are providing the service but also when they are perfectioning their service. If they are not paid, theyd have to work other jobs which means less availability to actually peovide spiritual service for others.

Personally, I provided things I learned for free because just as others gave to others, I also want to give back too. But Im talking about what I learned for free and helping others without much effort. I work and I need to pay my bills, so I dont have time to dedicate as if I do in full time.
