*pricing can be adjusted on a case-by-case basis for bimpoc, trans/nbi, and other marginalized individuals

oracle cards work essentially like the classic tarot, though i find that for me they're much less rigid and often lead to more personal discoveries.the size of a pull (aka a spread) can affect the best type of question to ask, and the type of answer to expect. for instance, because a three-card pull doesn't offer many opportunities for a super specific spread, i advise seeking answers and discoveries for broader questions and topics. subjects i've read on in this format include "am i on the correct life path?", "is this relationship toxic for me?", and "how can i improve on this certain skill or aspect of my life?"the larger the pull, the more specific the result.i hope i'm able to help shine some light on whatever might be on your mind.
