I am at work and grateful for it. I did nothing this weekend. Didn’t even crack the door outside. I did make food one day. Somebody called and I talked to him. I think that was it.
I am so over the holiday season. It feels like I have been through it and it should be over by now but there is still one more day to go. Then in theory, things get back to normal.
I thought it would be good to a tarot card reading for today. The question was Today’s focus (the thought was what should I focus on today). This is my reading.
The Fourfold Vision spread offers a progression of different ways of looking at an object, person, or situation. It is a powerful tool for gaining deeper insight into the specific subjects of other readings. The Cat People Tarot paints a picture of faraway lands trod by mystical archetypes and their feline companions. This deck is a perfect tool for dreamers and idealists, and is a great choice for divining the nature of human imagination. If you would like your own copy of the Cat People Tarot, you can buy it now!
The card on the far right represents the object being viewed, be it an idea, relationship, or the self. Nine of Swords (Cruelty), when reversed: Doubt. Suspicion. Slanderous gossip. Shame. Scruple. Timidity. Shady character. Reasonable fear.
The card second from the right represents the physical vision: how the object is seen at a base or mechanical level. Strength, when reversed: Weakness. Pettiness. Impotence. Sickness. Tyranny. Lack of faith. Abuse of power. Succumbing to temptation. Indifference.
The card in the middle represents the mental vision: the object personified and seen through a humanized perspective. The Devil: Ravage. Bondage. Malevolence. Subservience. Downfall. Lack of success. Weird experience. Bad influence or advice. Black magic. Unexpected failure. Seeming inability to realize one’s goals. Dependence that leads to unhappiness. Controversy. Violence. Shock. Fatality. Temptation to evil. Regression. Self-destruction. Disaster. Astral influence. The tearing apart of one’s self-expression to such an extent that the person becomes ineffectual. An Ill-tempered person. Lack of humor except at another’s expense. Lack of principles.
The card second from the left represents the emotional vision: how passions and values are creatively stimulated by the mental vision. Five of Swords (Defeat), when reversed: Uncertain outlook. Chance of loss or defeat. Weakness. Possible misfortune befalling a friend. Seduction. Burial.
The card on the far left represents the fourfold or mystical vision: still viewing through the previous three, we now add a spiritual element, revealing unseen aspects of the object. The Wheel of Fortune, when reversed: Failure. Ill luck. Broken sequence. Unexpected bad fate. Interruption or inconsistency due to unexpected events. Outside influences not contemplated.
Pretty damn dark. Looks like it is a good thing people aren’t needing to deal with me. This does seem somewhat close to how I am feeling. I have the numb version. This is the kind of reading you wish you hadn’t bothered with. Guess I just coast through today and see what tomorrow brings. That is what I did for the last two days. At least today I am at work and productive.
