Sometimes you need a little help to set the mood for a tarot reading. Music can block out the noisy neighbor, the frustrating day you just had, or simply bring you from the ordinary world into a space of calm introspection. It’s also hugely helpful when reading for others who might be nervous or skeptical. In this series of posts I wanted to highlight the artists and albums that get me all ready for divination.
You are reading in a dark corner of a hipster Halloween party. Or it’s 3 AM and a tall dark and handsome someone you only just met at a friend’s gathering has asked you to read their cards. Or it’s late and you are alone, and in a dark place in need of some answers. When you need that dark, moody, brooding music with an electronic edge, you might want to look at the soundtrack to that movie about Facebook. I know, I know! It’s about Facebook. And Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails wrote it. (I think he’s wonderful, you might have hesitations.) But I’m telling you it’s lush and fantastic. Just enough gloom and foreboding mixed with just the right amount of electronic beeps. And no one will recognize that it came from a movie.
