How do ppl feel about conducting readings for those who approach tarot in a curious/skeptical mindset?
On one hand, I enjoy reading for others and I think it helps me to shed light on the 'game/trickster' aspect of tarot reading (often I compare it to dreams - less serious and more serious than most other things). I also find it's good to have fresh perspectives on readings from ppl who don't know the history/dynamics behind tarot. I try to encourage any type of input no matter how off base/un-serious (for lack of a better term!!), uncensored impressions!
On the other hand, sometimes I have difficulties in conducting readings when they aren't taken seriously. I can ask a querant to concentrate when shuffling, but usually, they don't appear to, and I don't want to force them to. The other problem is when ppl accuse me of being too vague (newspaper horoscope), or when they can't immediatly see a correlation b/w a card and their lives that somehow it's *wrong*....
Has anyone else had similar experiences?
