Tarot Tuesday - Dana

Disclaimer: Tarot Tuesdays and Astrology Monthly are for entertainment purposes only. While it is true that I know everything (past, present and future,) I can not be relied upon to speak the truth. Please do not tell me I am playing with the Devil’s tool(s) and I am going to Hell. I know for a fact that G-d thinks I am the greatest joke he’s ever told and he’ll want me as a remembrance in Heaven. (Besides, I can’t go to Hell. There’s no ice cubes for my G & T’s.)

Tarot Tuesday
Each Tuesday I will do a Tarot reading for someone who has asked in the previous week’s Tarot comment section. If you want a reading, say so in the comments section. If more than one person asks, I will let Cody choose one person at random. Only one reading per month per person.

Astrology Monthly
On the first Saturday of each month, I will post everyone’s horoscope. Look for the first one on February 2nd, 2008. (I predict I may be a little late.)

Dana, the author of MURDER FOR HIRE: The Peruvian Pigeon asked for a tarot reading when she guest posted. And Dana announced the winners of her book give away.

My great-grandmother read regular playing cards for people in the small Austrian alpine village where she lived. She was especially favored by the community's resident herbalist. I learned to read twenty years ago because a friend wanted to learn but didn't want to go to the classes alone.

This tarot deck is called The Sacred Rose by artist Johanna Gargiulo-Sherman.

Dana, here's your reading (as always, you can click on the picture to enlarge):

Wands are fire and they represent the things you are passionate about; the things you must do. The Ten of Wands suggests that you have used all of your creative energy and only have burdens and responsibilities left from your last project. Accept your responsibilities, but be sure to ask for help where necessary or walk away when you seem to be getting nowhere. Ten of Wands tells you not to get burned out. You need to rekindle your creative spark.

The Hanged Man is the card of paradoxes and opposites. When in its normal position, hanging upside down, it says you are in the process of looking for inner and deep meaning and you are working towards profound breakthroughs in your internal life. Inverted, the card suggests you are fighting this learning process and do not want to give up something you know you need to release. For instance, to gain control you must stop struggling; to be strong you must be vulnerable. The solution to your current dilemma is simple but not easy and you are very reluctant to do what you know you need to do. You must make choices which will mean you must sacrifice some other choice, but it must be done. It doesn’t mean the other choice won’t come around again.

Knights are air and moving, change, the enthusiasm of youth. The Knight of Cups is in touch with his emotions and intuition and uses them to gain his desires. He reminds you to follow your dreams and passions but don’t go overboard. A day trip on the water is in your future.

  1. THanks, Nessa! Considering I'm working on letting go as my lesson for 2008, an entirely apt reading! Not to mention the publicity/marketing at the end of MFH's publication! 10 of Wands is dead on!

  2. Turn-about is fair play, so Icy read your fortune using her special Tarot deck on her Playground.

  3. Clearly I still have an awful lot to learn.
    Best wishes

  4. Wow, something you said to Dana could have been said to me too. Please read Tarot for me too!

  5. This is something I've always wanted to learn, but always put off!
    I'll watch with interest.

  6. This is all rather interesting. Where do I sign up?
