Is it just me or do these cards seem to be advising a hot hook up? By which I mean, casual, random sex. Or maybe it is just my hormones talking? This has never been my habit, but that was the first thing I thought of when I saw these cards.
The Wheel - changing fortunes, getting lucky, randomness
The Devil - lust, baser instincts, bondage ( I have had the Devil come up in a positive way for people as advice to cut loose a little, to go ahead and be a little selfish.)
Ace of Wands - raw, fiery energy, burning passion. I think the imagery speaks for itself as to why I thought it might allude to sex, and if you don't see it, maybe I am not the one who needs to get a little. *grin*
Maybe the Politically Incorrect Tarot Readings are seeping a little too far into my psyche, or maybe I am comfortable with my cards and they can tell me these kinds of things. Or maybe this was just funny.
Oh, the question was, what can I best do to distract myself from my heartache? And was asked last week.
I hope you all laughed as much as I did.
PS - I didn't do it!
These images are from the Illuminated Tarot. This one is the medium, with glitter, beautifully produced by Carol Herzer.
I am not a visual artist. The creators of the decks I use are. I try very hard to give proper credit to the artist when I use an image.
My most oft used deck on this blog is the Deviant Moon Tarot, created by Patrick Valenza and published by U.S. Games Systems, Incorporated. Check out his site to buy some fantastic Deviant Moon stuff, or a deck of your own!
A lovely, but digital only, Rider Waite Smith clone deck is the Aquatic by Andreas Schroter. You are allowed to downlaod and use the images.
They also make me tell you that readings are for entertainment purposes only. I'll tell you on my own that if you change your life based on a few cards something is not right there.
