Me and my pet dragon wanted to wish you all a joyous Samhain today, when, like the story of Persephone, we begin our journey to the Underworld of winter.
Have a great day!
I figured it was high-time I officially post my offerings to you as a tarot interpreter. 🙂
The tarot deck has long fascinated me, but it wasn’t until the Spring of 2015 that I finally got up the courage (or perhaps was finally hungry enough for its Gnosis) to purchase my first deck and begin studying. These initial studies and personal readings helped me get through an intense period of spiritual transition and self-discovery, not to mention clinical therapy. 😉
What I discovered is that the tarot deck represents the potential of all that a person is. We are all things at various times, in the physical, mental, emotional, and ambitious aspects of our lives. Evolutionarily and habitually, we each tend toward certain responses (knee-jerk reactions) when faced with obstacles. But when we can see clearly what aspect of ourselves is ruling at a given time and why, we are better able to decide whether to allow our initial instincts full reign, or perhaps to seek out “better angels”.
This is what a “psychological” tarot interpretation offers — a glimpse into the depths of our subconscious and motivations, and the chance to ask ourselves if there is not perhaps a better response to what we face.
Have any more questions? Drop me a line!
If I project meaning and value onto the nature of my surroundings, why is it so strange to think that I also project my own values and meanings upon the people and communities among which I find myself– values which do not in themselves exist, were it not for me and my own interpretations.
And therefore, we act upon our meanings and values that we project and perceive onto others, and we may very well– no, almost invariably– react based upon entirely nonexistent factors. The anxiety and trouble we stir in our own lives is none but our own doing. Likewise, however, how easy it would be to redeem ourselves from this chaos, if not for the powerful nature of habit.
You can only straighten what is crooked, by first straightening yourself.
Hate never dispelled hate; only Love can counteract hate: Perfect Love, as Gaia loves.
This is Nature’s Law, and it is the way of things, as they have always been. It is the natural flow of Universal Energy. Step into the Flow, and struggle not against it.
How will you spend your energy today?
My Now is in a constant state of regeneration.
…even my memories that I experience, now, are a result of the firing of neurons and the grasping of the Subconscious in the Now…
