I made a comment on this topic at a forum - Re tarot reading and hula for a person starting to do tarot:
I totally agree to Andalusia's sharing (she made a reply to the person who posted a query), in particular tarot reading as a form of entertainment.
Although as a beginner or doing it as a sideline you really need to practice a lot and develop the skills. Otherwise you will lose your clients and will not return back to you if you do not read the cards carefully.
I have sustain myself through my followers and through words of mouth from my regular patrons. Since I do not have a place of my own, unlike before I used to read with other folks at Edsa Shangrila, I read clients at coffeeshops and restaurants, of course all these readings are through appointment. Some clients have came across me through fliers/posters at UP Shopping center, through my blog and others read testimonials about me at different forum.
As to pricing - I am at high-end, for beginner I believe the common rate would be 300-500 pesos a reading.
Also I like to dispel the notion that tarot readers are manghuhula. Reading tarot is not a form of hula, as a reader whatever cards you pick I interpret it for you. For that reason I charge higher because my reading is more wholistic - I do birth chart, palmistry, and if clients are not satisfied I can also give them I Ching reading.
So enjoy your journey through tarot card reading and please do not mistaken hula for tarot reading, unless otherwise you really do not fully grasp what tarot reading is, or for some they make hula in their interpretation of the tarot since they are not attuned with the real essence of tarot reading.
