The Taboo – I Won’t Read the Tarot Naked

An immodest proposal leads to discussion about spiritual taboos

I turned down an interesting request today, for a nude tarot reading. I explained that would be breaking taboos that bind my Spiritual Work. And that’s just my personal feeling, I have a former stripper friend who started reading tarot on the backstage while topless. I know at least one famous cam girl who reads tarot on the same menu as various sex acts that you can pay for to see her perform. I just don’t mix the two and I feel pretty strong about it.

Either you look me in the eyes even if I was naked / covered in blood / risen from the grave because this is Serious Magick, or you’re looking at my titties which is adorable of course, and highly promoted at the right places but it’s a totally different thing.

Or, could it be actually that as the Priestess of Ishtar I am more of a Dominatrix who is untouchable? Could it be so?

This is how I see it ~ my modeling is all about creating that fiction, drama, entertainment. My magical work is not. It’s very real. It’s serious business. It’s not for the cameras either. It can be spoken of, but not profaned as content for media. I don’t ever film myself in ritual or take pictures of my rituals for the clients or the public. It’s not an artistic endeavor for me, I appreciate occult-themed art and even witchy photoshoots but there is a big difference.

Keeping it separate helps to keep it powerful. Taboos exist for that very reason.

  1. Hi Ani,
    I agree completely that you should keep the two separate, as I mentioned before in a FB post to you. Magick is serious business, and you have to be very focused on the operation at hand, if you want to be successful. It would be dangerous to do otherwise, in my view. For example, with divination using the Tarot, the diviner has to have complete control over the intelligences involved. They must not leave the smallest loophole for being tricked. Otherwise, you risk being devoured by the Cerberus. I would think that doing a reading naked while the other person was lusting over your beautiful body, might be a distraction. 🙂
