Today's topic comes from [livejournal.com profile] silkensteel: Pull three tarot cards at random. Rather than their being "past, present, future" have them be "beginning, middle, end." Pull a fourth, what facet of your life does it remind you of? Apply the cards to the beginning, middle and end of that facet - what do you see?

Because it suits my nature, and because "three cards together, then a parting shot" is my usual pattern when working with this particular deck, I'm using Morgan's Tarot for this.

Beginning: TRY TO RELAX
Trying and relaxing oppose each other, so the real meaning of the card is, "Relax, don't try."
Middle: YOU ARE A PAWN
You may feel that you are being manipulated by a higher, more clever intelligence. In reality, nobody is doing anything to anybody. We're all here together, although the rational conscious may not realize it.
End: I THINK I'LL MAKE A BUDDHA
The inspiration for this card was a three-year-old child's response to a question about what he would like to model out of the clay he had been given.
Facet: AS ABOVE, SO BELOW
Dualism is an illusion. The events on earth reflect the events in heaven. Man and Woman contain the pattern of the universe.
"As above, so below" is quoted from the Emerald Tablet, which is the summary of the alchemical work as revealed to Hermes Trismegistes, an ancient sage of unknown origin.

...well, I may need some time to figure out how this reading fits into the specific context I was given for this entry, but if that three-card spread doesn't sum up my adult life as a whole, I'll eat my shoes. ;-)
