I have the very distinct and slightly uncomfortable feeling that, like it or not, I am about to get a lesson all three ways today, or in the near future.
|Mystic Dreamer Tarot- King of Cups, Five of Swords, The Hermit|
The Hermit is the wise old man who who is looking over the whole reading. If there is anything of value here, he will find it, and alchemically turn this nasty bit into gold. Such is his power. He is also representative of Saturn, on whom I have nine(!) aspects hinging on in my chart, so I know there is a lesson for me here about turning limitations into opportunities.
|Mystic Dreamer Tarot- Two of Wands|
The Shadow Card of this reading is the Two of Wands. He is so much like a wanna-be Magician in this rendition. All in all, I am getting the distinct impression someone would like to put one over on me. I do not think they will be successful, because I appear often as The Magician in my own readings, not this weaker looking version. They are welcome to try, though. I am as disengaged as the King of Cups, as willing to walk away as the girls in the Five of Swords, and use every experience as a learning one like The Hermit.
|Wisdom of the House of Night Oracle- Vision|
The book reads, "When you choose this symbol, it means that no matter what you lose in your life, something better will replace it." And continues, "To know the future is to be prepared." So I guess all I have to say in return is, "Bring it." No one has the ability to bring me down but me.
These cards are from Mystic Dreamer Tarot by Heidi Darras and Barbara Moore, published by Llewellyn, and Wisdom of the House of Night Oracle by P.C. Cast and Colette Baron Reid, published by Potter Style.
