SpellSpace: A New Website With a Fresh Take on the Old Art of Tarot

Oct 21, 2007, 01:00 ET from SpellSpace.com

    LAKE ARROWHEAD, Calif., Oct. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- SpellSpace.com is an
 artistic, realistic and high-tech site, which recently announced its debut
 on the web, bringing a fresh take on an old art. A single word was searched
 more than 350,000(1) times on the Internet last month. It wasn't a typical
 word, one related to finding directions or shopping. It revealed that
 people are seeking personal advice and help, but not from a psychiatrist or
 therapist. No, these searches consulted a more mystical source: "Tarot."
     Many are intrigued by the ancient practice of tarot, but how many
 actually tried it? Face it, going into some dark den on the other side of
 town and hearing the future from a stranger seems risky. But getting a
 reading on the Internet is like avoiding the dark back alleys and meeting
 directly with a reputable psychic.
     There are more than 1,200(2) tarot sites in North America, providing a
 range of services from free but limited readings, to live chat sessions
 with a psychic, to expensive membership services. The top tarot sites have
 more than 1.8(3) million unique visitors a month, but are typically loaded
 with pop-up ads and teaser services that result in expensive recurring
 fees. The smaller sites, meanwhile, lurk in the darker corners of
 witchcraft and voodoo. So even on the web, it can still feel like stumbling
 onto a seedy, neon-lit alley full of dicey psychics and all-night card
 reader parlors.
     And then there's SpellSpace, where the difficult skill of tarot has
 been duplicated and presented in a way that is friendly, inviting and real.
 And completely free. SpellSpace.com is authentic: the designer scanned her
 own well-worn cards into the website. SpellSpace.com is interactive: the
 developer used mathematical randomization methods that mimic real shuffles,
 responding to every click. Unlike the majority of sites, which present a
 few pre-packaged outcomes, the database-driven tarot readings at
 SpellSpace.com derived from the intuitions of an experienced reader
 resulting in thousands of unique outcomes.
     To the novice, this level of authenticity may be overlooked, but for
 the aficionado it is everything. No matter what the level of interest,
 SpellSpace.com guests describe a feeling of being both understood and well-
 advised. Read some reviews:
     -- "I'm sometimes in awe at the deep insight and accuracy of your tarot
         readings!" E.L., AZ
 
     -- "It didn't ask anything about who I was, and yet it was scary accurate
         about me, all the way down to my physical description." C.P., Digg.com
     SpellSpace.com also generates recommended spells related to the
 personalized tarot reading to help with love, career or even luck, and make
 purchases at the SpellStore. Readings can be saved, tracked, annotated,
 viewed for trends or shared with friends.
     So believers or non-believers, tarot experts or novices, or simply the
 curious can discover an artistic, interactive place to explore tarot and
 maybe even try a spell or two, without ever having to visit the wrong side
 of town ... or the Internet.
