Actually I happen to have a few of those crystal balls, inot. But payment for spiritual advise goes against the tenants of the tradition in which I was initiated. (Combination of Gardnerian and Wagnerian Wicca)
Out of curiousity though, I did check into one of those psychic hotlines jobs. I was told that I would have to pay for a second phone line myself, and although the company that was offering me employment charged the public four dollars a minute for tarot readings, I would receive a cut of twenty five cents, nod, per minute.
I also told them that there are times, for whatever reason, I was not always successful with certain people--there are some people I simply can not "read".
I was told that was "fine"--that a script would be provided for such instances.
Um, lying also happens to be against the tenants of my spiritual beliefs as well, so I told them no thank you.
Oh, and at the time I was living in a city where such practices were against the law. (Gretna, La.)
As far as I know, it still is, too.
But I do thank you for your consideration.
Interestingly enough, Priestess Miriam of the New Orleans Voodoo temple may be moving her shop from the French Quarter to my part of the Greater New Orleans area, so something in that capacity just may be in my future.
I was going to ask to be the snake dancer for rituals in the Spanish Plaza, but was told it is unlikely that public ritual for tourist interest was unlikely any time soon.
Besides, sigh, I don't know if you have heard, but I lost my snake.
