Tea Leaf Tuesday - August 23, 2011



I would be willing to bet that most misunderstandings rise out of great passion and people behaving stupidly.  I wish the gossip card could surprise me, but it doesn't.  I am well aware that there are people in my life, mostly remnants and hangers on, that do not wish me well, and that's okay.  They talk about me because nothing else in their lives is as interesting.  My little sister posted this on her facebook page the other day and I echo the sentiment- "I love all haters, fakers, pretenders, and backstabbers. I thank y'all for making me strong."  I am responsible for me, and the way I walk in the world, and everyone else is responsible for them.  At the end of my time here, when I make my accounting to the powers that be, I will not be trying to explain why they feel the need to be mean.  I'll be explaining how I reacted.

We are going to San Francisco on Thursday, so I am sure there will be some happy, light hearted fun mixed in, and I am sure we will make it on a boat at some time.  If there is a lottery or casino kind of thing there I will be sure to throw some money down on that lucky card.  I'm excited for the Chain.  I am ready for things to be happening!

Update: August 30, 2011- The misunderstanding happened here, wherein my gentle and soft spoken husband became quite irate with me for continually putting off needed doctor's appointments,  and I would be willing to go so far as to say that the great passion and someone behaving stupidly was there, as well.  I am not naming names, though... I am still not all that concerned about the gossip, because when you live your life with integrity you just don't have to worry about those kind of things, and as I said I am sure it happens all the time anyway, because I was not always good about surrounding myself with people who lived their life that way.

We had a beautiful time in San Francisco, with lots of carefree time as a couple and with friends, and I loved every single moment of it.  I can't wait to go back, and it is definitely on my list of livable cities, should we ever need a change of landscape.  I also believe that the act of attending San Francisco Bay Area Tarot Symposium has set into motion that chain of events that will affect my life, in no small part because I learned sooooo much and had such a fire lit under my behind to get in gear with my business pursuits.  It became very clear to me that while learning is lifelong, I am beyond ready to spread my wings in both areas I am passionate about- tarot and writing.  Now I just need to attend to the details.

The winning or windfall is The Man's to expound upon, as he has a lucky nature and works hard, which always ends up a winning combination.  He won a gorgeous Steele Wizard Tarot from the raffle at BATS, which is his first deck, as well as probably a HUUUUUUGE prize at work, which was performance based AND he won even missing two days at work to accompany me.  I'll let you in on the details after we know them, if you don't hear me screeching in delight wherever you are.

Another win for fortune telling with the Tea Leaf Fortune Cards!







These cards are the Tea Leaf Fortune Cards by Rae Hepburn.

  1. Nice--an interesting mix. I got a lot of these cards recently too! I've been enjoying this deck. I like how literal it can be and how you can also ignore how literal it is at times. It's a little confusing but I'm slowly starting to get the hang of it.

    Have a wonderful time in San Francisco. Sounds exciting...

  2. Sorry to see the gossip card. I was accused of gossip last year, and back-stabbing, when I was doing nothing of the sort, and was in fact, trying to be fair with everyone, defending people, etc. More than one person let me take the fall in favour of their not being found out; I don't know why, if they didn't like these people enough to keep their secrets, they would want to remain "friends" with them.

    I really want these cards! (I also want the spider that's hovering over me, to go away. yikes.)

  3. MM- Your posts with the deck are really good, some of them cute, some of them poignant. I am not sure I have the hang of these cards yet but we shall see.

    Angela, that is one of the worst feelings, when you don't know who around you can trust and when you stand accused of something that is not even in your nature. I guess it comes down to those who matter don't mind, and those who mind don't matter. Yeah, go away spider!
