  What sort of responsibility does a reader have to the querent?  What are characteristics of an honest and responsible reader?

Sperran

I have seen really bad readings where the reader, faced with a card that didn't fit or a bad interpretation of a card, literally tried to convince the querent that it did. Basically trying to make them see the thing the card represented in their situation, when it just didn't fit.
To me, a good reader should be able to put pride aside and simply admit that either the card doesn't fit, or they need to expand their own knowledge of its meaning, rather than putting the fault on the querent. It makes for a very uncomfortable situation, and in the long run, the querent will block any useful information because of an arrogant reader.

Circle in the night
In the dark I cloak myself in Light.
Surrounded by this Power, Magick's might
I see the ancient Fire burning bright.
Circle in the night.
