I regret having missed you today. I was waking up from a little nap there. Strange times. I’ve run out of medicine, as you can well guess, and breathing is not at top quality. Some nights I have a little more trouble than others. Last night was just one such night, and so I got up early, and you guessed it, went jogging.
This has good effect on my joints and maybe my lungs (who knows?). Tea for breakfast.
I am reawakening my fondness for the Tarot. Before bed last night I pulled up three powerful cards pertaining to me, hitting it dead on. Check this:
Two of Cups
This card of two people looking into each other’s eyes is one of the easiest to read – it is recognition of love, of a friend or soul mate. It predicts that you will find someone who ‘knows’ you, and you, in turn, will ‘know’ them. It is a very Romeo & Juliet card. So, there is the direction for that swelling of emotion within you, toward this other person.
Eight of Pentacles
An apprentice works on eight pentacles. This is the apprentice card. It is a card of starting over, doing something new or perhaps just expanding. Apprenticeship can be scary or demoralizing, like in all those cliched movies where the Kung Fu youngster has to carry water and sweep floors before he can do the real stuff. Similarly, this card predicts, if not a tough time, a time of learning and mistakes, doubts and just hard work. The Querent needs to be told to keep up their courage, to either make this move into a new job or to stick with it if they’ve already made the move. Being an apprentice (or an apprentice again) will teach (or re-teach) them how to persevere.
The message of all Eights is that movement, a change of place, home, job or situation can lead to an internal transformation. All that is needed is the strength to go through with it.
With Aquarius as its ruling sign, The Star is a card that looks to the future. It does not predict any immediate or powerful change, but it does predict hope and healing. This card suggests clarity of vision, spiritual insight. And, most importantly, that unexpected help will be coming, with water to quench the Querent’s thirst, with a guiding light to the future.
The Star is one of those cards everyone loves. In every deck, it is usually the most beautiful. It suggests the peace and harmony of its meaning. There is nothing negative about this card, but I think there is a trick to it. Whatever hope, healing, future it offers, the reader must remember that it might not be immediate. This is a soft card, and like Aquarius, its vision is for tomorrow, not today. That’s not to say that it offers no concrete benefits; it is a card the predicts unexpected help, but that help is only the first step. The star only reveals the future. It is up to the Querent to find his way to that future.
Kalika is tripping me out, as usual. Rudra is a sleepy sage by night, a goddamn anarcho-syndicalist by day. When he wants out, he really, really wants out! Finished up my paper which is due tomorrow night, and posted it here in the journals. Let me know what you think of it. It does feel a little rushed even after a week, but I did my best. Okay sweetheart, talk to you later.
