The Secret Free Tarot Card-Reading Portal
by Meghan O’Keefe
My favorite way to waste time at work is by worrying about my future. Horoscopes are one way to get my fix, but better is Llewellyn.com’s secret free tarot card-reading portal, which I stumbled across years ago, and which I’ve since visited daily to learn about the mysterious men and bad omens about to influence my destiny.
It’s well designed, easy to navigate, and about as good as a free online tarot card-reading site could conceivably be: You get your choice of nine different card decks, ranging from Llewellyn’s signature deck to the druid-inspired “Sacred Circle Tarot” to the glitzy “Gilded Tarot,” and your pick of spreads (the patterns in which the cards are laid out). Again, they have classic spreads like the Celtic Cross, as well as zanier ones like “Finding Animal Spirits.” Then, once you ask your question and click a button, the page shows you your unique spread and takes you through each card’s various meanings.
My favorite combination? “Legend: The Arthurian Tarot” set to Celtic Cross spread. I like to ask “How’s my career going?” and then, as I’m halfway through reading about the obstacles that are about to cross my path, my boss walks over with a stack of expenses that need to be processed. THAT’S how accurate the readings are.
