Today's Cards

This afternoon I drew these three cards from the Ancestral Path Deck.  I just threw three cards with no specific query in mind, but rather desiring a look at the vibes of the day:)
All three are Majors..  I have noted a trend in my journal that I do draw Major Arcana when reading for myself.  

I am too tired to speculate on the meaning of any of this since I went to town with the family and came home with a Christmas tree.  The tree has been decorated and it is a fine tree.  I, on the other hand, am tired and have aches and pains .  

I love this Fool card!!  I love taking risks!! 

The Moon is always around for me, but I don't see this card negatively, more like the opening of my subconscious mind and probing the mysteries of life.

I know the Magician oh so well LOL...I've been privy to some very magical energy over the past few days even :)

I'm going to think about this tomorrow.  Right now I am going to go lie down.

At least you're not like that ANNOYING Audrey who can't get her head around the idea that there's more than one meaning to each card. I swear to god I was really truly strained in terms of holding myself back, because it was ALL I could do not to reply to her email that she has NO BUSINESS trying to be a tarot card reader and that she doesn't deserve that deck of Ciro's and she should just throw them all away and get off the list. If I have to hear ONE MORE POST from her saying her Tarot of Dreams is the only deck she will ever need, I am going to throw up. But on top of it she doesn't even understand it and can't open her stupid little mind up enough to even LISTEN to anyone else try to explain to her how to learn anything at all.

GOD I want to slap her. Shit.

Anyway, you've drawn one of my favorite cards in that deck, the one with the reader on it. LOL I wish that was me LOL But that girl is way thinner than I am and she's a blonde, something I will NEVER be...... *grin*

Something I've noticed about these cards, the originals are painted in oils and anything that is done with faces and people that is done with oils is often done with too heavy of a hand and in this deck I really think that comes through. A lighter touch would be more my thing. I'm not too keen on the faces in this deck. It's not a big issue with cards like the Moon and stuff but the Magician is one example of a card where I'd like it a whole lot better if she hadn't drawn his face. LOL

I know it's possible NOT to be too heavy-handed with oils, because all of the pre-Raphaelites and neo-Classicists that I love, like Waterhouse and Parrish and stuff, can paint these gorgeous faces that have such a light touch to them.....

But I know several people painting in oils nowadays and they all look like the Ancestral Path. So I am wondering if this is something they are teaching in the art schools in this generation. Makes for interesting food for thought, anyway.

Hey, I just thought of something else to be grateful for. I'm grateful I'm not Audrey! LOL

I am so pleased that you mention Audrey. I have wanted to slap her myself several times. She sounds like a child saying, "I can't" which really translates to "I won't"... I guess you may have noticed that she has all of a sudden started posting her meanings, which seem similar to standard meanings. I think she is one strange human, and seems like she posted all that I can't stuff just to get sympathy from the group, not real advice. As for the TOD.. I couldn't live with myself if I paid that much for a deck, way too expensive imho :)

I will never be thin again LOL, but I was a blonde in the 60's LOL.. I am working with several concepts on designing my own deck, not for publication but for my own use, and I think I will use a similar approach for the Fool, but with my own photos..

Hahahha.. I'm glad I'm not Audrey too!!!!

I see what you mean about the faces, the Magician looks absolutely pissed off.

She sound more like someone who try to get all the attention by looking weak and sad. If she *want* to think that its all about meanings and those paper cards, nothing of intuitive. Then she might as well GIVE UP... *sigh*

You are creating your own deck?? That sound so cool, please share :)

regarding Audrey, one of the only reasons I Have not been harsher with her on-list, frankly, is because she is like the only black member of the tarot community that I know (other than Michele Jackson) and I do NOT want to come across like I am dissing anyone because of race or anything.

*I* know I am not a racist, and YOU guys know I am not a racist, but I don't want anyone who doesn't know me to think that.


Sometimes I swear she is like RETARDED or something..... on purpose? who would CHOOSE to be dumb?

then I remember that for a long time she was posting about how depressed she was, etc.

and I think to myself, maybe it's the meds. I don't know, if she is even on meds or if she is just spending her whole life in a cocoon.

You know, I can't recall her ever mentioning having a job. Yet she has talked about going to therapy.

I have this bad mental image of her being some kind of rich stupid trust-fund baby who goes to therapy all the time, paid for by Daddy, and who has all her life had money and mental issues to cover up the fact that, quite plainly, she is unintelligent.

I know that's harsh.

I don't care. LOL

There are times when it's important to call it as it is. If I had her in my class in front of me, I'd really call her out and yell at her. Not in front of everyone, but I'd take her out of class and refund her money and refuse to teach anyone so closed-minded.


There is no end to the bad taste she leaves in my mouth. that, and MICHAEL BOLTON! OH my GOD.

If I have to hear about that once-upon-a-time metal-singer-wannabe, wish-he-was-Tom-Jones singer, I'm going to BARF.

Ugh, ugh, ugh.

I guess you can't be racist if you be friend with me. Did you know I'm a "Chinese"?? ;)

yea, she never mention anything about "work". All I know is that she have money to collect a lot of stuff..oh well...
Dec. 3rd, 2006 06:40 pm (UTC)
yeah I know, people can be racist without being racist towards ALL races. LOL

daddy's money can't make her tolerable though..... terrible isn't it?
Dec. 3rd, 2006 08:06 pm (UTC)
I think she may have mental issues of some kind as she has spoken about the death of her father and how badly she was affected by it. also I, too think she has mentioned a therapist.. but being mental doesn't make you dumb LOL

Hahahha.. Michael Bolton makes we want to puke too.. the only thing I ever even hardly liked about him was his hair and he cut that off..

I do love you so Gina.. and especially because you tell it like it is..

Dec. 4th, 2006 02:17 am (UTC)
you know =) I once was unable to tell it like it is. once upon a time, I was almost the complete opposite of how I am today. I was introverted, shy to the point of being disgusting =) there was a boy I liked in high school, for three years I had a crush on him, and he gave me his phone number once to call him and tell him if I was going on the class trip, and I was so shy I couldn't even call him under those circumstances! Every time I'd see him coming down the hall, I HID because he might *look* at me.....

I turned my own damned life around. I have very little patience with people who refuse to own it and turn it around themselves.....

You know, it's funny, whenever I hear Michael Bolton, I still remember him in that crappy tight red leather outfit he used to wear with the long hair back when he was trying to be POP metal. Remember that?

Shit, I've just gone and given away that I'm old LOL
Dec. 5th, 2006 01:02 pm (UTC)
Oh hah.. you are certainly not old.. I don't remember much about Bolton and I only heard his music a couple of times on the radio. I'm a reggae woman all the way :)

If you have overcome your shyness, is there still hope for me?? LOL I am certainly less introverted than I was as a kid, and sometimes can be down right mouthy, but still working on self confidence:)
Dec. 5th, 2006 04:36 pm (UTC)
there's always hope.

self confidence came to me mostly from the part of my brain that was sitting in the back seat looking while the front part of me was going around being all forward and shit.

when I got to college, and I realized everyone there had the same disadvantage of being new, I realized I could re-make myself any way I wanted.

I didn't want to be shy. For some reason I came up with this idea that to overcome shyness, one must be forward.

I started forcing myself to walk up to total strangers, stick my hand out, and introduce myself. I'm sure some of them thought I was completely bonkers. Some of them went to lunch with me. In the end, I realized that none of them knew me, so who cared if they thought I was nuts?

After a few said yes, and went to lunch, that's where self-confidence came in.

It's not in how you feel about yourself, but how you feel about the way you can present yourself..... realizing you have total control over how you COME ACROSS to anyone and you can be anything you damned well please at any time.

And, of course, releasing the need for anyone to like you. Whether they like you or not is their problem, isn't it?
Dec. 5th, 2006 07:28 pm (UTC)
right on... sez Rose who could give a fuck who likes her and who does not...

except I DO want to like myself :)

And, I don't mind living like a hermit either.. well at least most of the time...
Dec. 3rd, 2006 04:20 pm (UTC)
OMG, not her again!!!
Actually I got so annoy at one point, I was thinking of leaving the group. End up setting a filter for all her mails went straight to the trash. Sorry I just can't understand why "she don't understand"
*eyes roll up*
Dec. 3rd, 2006 05:43 pm (UTC)
it's that whole "Can't/WON'T" thing.

She could, if she wanted to. She refuses to open her mind up a crack and let something other than what she has decided is true be available to her to learn from.

I am done with her, wash my hands.
Dec. 3rd, 2006 05:46 pm (UTC)
*hands over my ears*

Dec. 4th, 2006 02:14 am (UTC)

Dec. 4th, 2006 06:15 am (UTC)
