19) Do you think/feel the cards "think" or have their own consciousness? What do you believe makes the cards "tick?"
No, I don't believe that the cards operate of their own volition - that's creepy!!! I do believe that cards are a tool through which we connect with certain energies. That's why working with Tarot is a highly intuitive endeavor.

20) Do you read for yourself and/or for others? Why or why not?
Both. At this point I usually only do one-card daily draws for myself, and focus on more in depth readings for others. When I first started of course I only read for myself and loved ones, but at some point that stops being a valuable learning tool, and to move to the next step of development it's necessary to read for strangers. I've been loving it, and have found it to be a rewarding experience.
21) How do you feel when you do readings?
It's kind of meditative, which would make sense, I guess. When I "get in the zone" I can feel myself connecting and opening up to the energies of the querent, and whatever universal energy surrounds us all. It's like a shift I sense in my mind.
