Tarot

I am currently very interested in Tarot. I am studying the subject and own a beautiful deck of Native American Tarot. I never gave or received a reading, but I find the symbolism involved in Tarot very interesting.

Couple of days ago I did a test What Tarot Card Are You? I found it very interesting, and as I am lacking for ideas, for my blog tonight I will post the result here and now.


You are The Empress
Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation.
The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents, beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.
The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love. Even so, the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, then sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can, in anger withhold, as Demeter did when her daughter, Persephone, was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.

I won't tag anyone as it is not officially a meme, but if you're going to try this please let me know, so I can see the result. If nothing else at least it's a different game!

I am the Fool

Idea, thought, spirituality, that which endeavours to rise above the material.

The Fool is the card of infinite possibilities. The bag on the staff indicates that he has all he need to do or be anything he wants, he has only to stop and unpack. He is on his way to a brand new beginning. But the card carries a little bark of warning as well. Stop daydreaming and fantasising and watch your step, lest you fall and end up looking the fool.

The Fool is one of my favourites in Tarot! It is equivalent to the mathematical 0, the whole world would collapse without it! May I ask, Richard, do you think the meaning could be applied to you?
