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. ;-)
kshandra: Butterfly-shaped pewter paperweight, engraved with the Serenity Prayer (Serenity)
So I poked Morgan...and as usual, it poked me right back.

3-card reading and a parting shot, as usual )

Time to check in with Morgan again.

I love having a snarky tarot deck. No, really. )

I'm going to try and check in with Morgan a little more regularly this year.

I'll be keeping most of the actual questions to myself, though. )
kshandra: Small owl with its head turned 90 degrees from vertical. Text: "Wait...what?" (...what?)
So I haven't mentioned it yet, but I'm interviewing here on Thursday for the permanent position I'm currently filling as a temp. Combine that with Morgan coming up in someone else's journal, and, well, you can guess what comes next.

Am I ready for this interview? )
kshandra: Porcelain dragon figurine stares at the camera, arms crossed and eyebrow raised (HighlySkeptical)
Desperately going back through my journal, looking for a post I have neither tagged nor memoried, and I keep hitting a lot of Morgan posts. This means that a. I should be tagging those, and b. it's time for another reading.

Ask a stupid question, get a 'Stupid!' answer.... )

Someone in a community I was reading tonight had a Morgan userpic; after giving them much much love, I wandered out to the site. But I asked a vague question, so I got a vague answer. )
