Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : Queers have the best luck with Tarot cards?

I have 4 friends (plus myself) who read Tarot cards. I’m okay, I can sometimes understand what the cards want to tell me. The other bisexual in the group is okay, too.

However, the two straight people are really not very good at all. A few times, they have been right, but they’ve mostly been forced to give up reading and now use their cards for meditation.

And my gay friend who reads is amazing–he’s right almost every time.

Coincidence?

Answer by Brian
Sexuality has nothing to do with it – it has to do with confidence, experience, etc. etc.

Sexuality doesn’t enter the equation of who is a better reader and who isn’t.

i think it depends on the person. not if theyre gay or not.

Answer by truckinotter
It just happens that gay people are more open-minded in general and thus more in tune with their sub conscious. They are better at reading the signs in others as well as their selves. My partner is an awesome tarot reader and will tell it to you straight…she will not sugar coat anything. I am good at it too, but some days better than others and vastly out of practice with my runes. Most gays have studied the other religions beside Christianity-because they won’t accept us- and it helps to have this knowledge to be a successful reader.

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : Will it confuse my readers by changing the characters nickname in the middle of the book?

My character is fifteen year old Alexandra Dufrene. She was born in 1921 and discovered she had psychic powers at the age of six. But, a month before her fifteenth birthday she is locked away in Wischard institution for the clinically insane. She doesn`t age after the age of fifteen for unknown reasons. She can control peoples thoughts and actions and move things with her mind. She can she the future, but only when using tarot cards. She goes by Ally until 1993 then she begins going by Alex.

Answer by SweetNothings
Unless the name change is significant to the plot then I wouldn’t change it.

Or, you can change it and have the characters in the book refer to her by her nick, but in your narration you refer to her by her full name. So, I wouldn’t change the name in the actual narration.

Answer by Elle
If it is part of the character’s history that she went by Ally, and then chose to become Alex, that is fine, as long as it is made perfunctorily clear. However, if you referred to her as Ally and then randomly started calling her Alex, that is confusing for the reader.

Hope this helps!

Unless you make a strong and clear explanation clearly making obvious this is the same character, I would not do it. The first time I read a Russian novel I got totally confused by all the shifting names with patronymics, formal names, informal names, and whatever.

Answer by Sarah
It depends on what age group it for. If for people that are 7, 8, 9,10 , then no (well most people I know aren’t that bright so maybe maybe not). Any group older yeah that’s fine.

Answer by Rev. Lynn D.
Do what you feel and then make sure you explain it well enough so the reader will not be confused.

About Me:
————-
I’ve always ‘seen’ things that people would say are psychic and paranormal – and as a child, I had predictive dreams of ‘things to come’. Being that age, I was growing and playing but being a kid, I never really questioned this too much. Not until I got to about fourteen, when for some reason, I became very aware of it all and began to question. It was then that I suddenly started to realize that not everyone was having these dreams. Or that no-one else had their own ‘Cosmic Teachers’ who would come along, dressed in white and teach me.

I am not as anyone here, you can try by yourself, I am an expert in a different way, holding in my hand the secret of your life, I am from Land of the Pharaohs, I am Egyptian, we going to see together what is going on with you in your life, let’s start our journey into your deep inner and search into your Past, Present, and your near Future, only, for your own highest good. I used many tarot cards, I know lots of spreads, I hold lots of secrets, I can contact with your inner angels, to bring you your best thing for yourself and for your life.

Since being here on Oranum I have already been able to give guidance and spread the healing seeds of positivism, which I am a great believer of. Happiness is achievable for all of us if we learn how to ask for it.

You are at the right pace if you need to talk to someone about your worries and dilemmas, if you are you having self-esteem issues, and feel low on energy.

Do not look further and PUT YOUR TRUST IN ME!
