VI - The Lovers

Drawn to explain a dream in which I was asking why I found it impossible to get a girlfriend and was told this was because I had to find Mrs S again in this incarnation. I suppose it’s fate then; some of the apparent opposite qualities are really expressions of twin souls.

Ace of Disks

This was drawn as card for the day. We spent several hours walking all the way round our favourite large park with rolling green fields, sheep, gardens, old buildings, woods and ponds while the sun shone. In this case I think the card simply represents the beauty and abundance to be found in the mat...

Re: 10 of Swords

Drawn regarding a large amount of spam on the forum that needed bans and deletion.

I guess multiple spam posts and users represent the culmination of useless and damaging human ideas of how to make money with no consideration for anyone else. All that can be done is to obliterate them.

Re: Princess of Wands

Hmm, maybe you felt you’d been climbing too high or exposed in some piece of work?

Princess of Wands

Commentary on a dream in which I watched three workmen fall from wobbly scaffolding and splat on the ground, the fire brigade when I phoned them not taking me seriously, saying they’d have to “check it out”. The downward emphasis suggests my urge for growth, joy and novelty is being held back, pulle...

8 of Cups

Analysing some images I was was struck by the concept of being exactly where one wanted to be, not wishing to be anywhere else or doing anything different. This seems to me to be a state of mind worth cultivating and I drew this card when asking for an opinion on that. It’s quite a subdued, restrict...

V - The Hierophant

Card for yesterday. The relevant idea seems to be finding one’s own answers to the mysteries of life, taking personal responsibility for making sense of things rather than relying on authorities such as priests. Mrs S and I watched a documentary about sleep, discussed it and decided to take more car...

Re: Thoth iconography - Hanged Man

Maybe the eyes of Peter McGlashan who wrote his name and house name in the book. I’ve just found the house he lived in on the web, now a luxury 10 bedroom hotel, and had a good look inside as it’s been for sale since January. It would have been a lovely house to sit and read the book in looking out ...

Re: Thoth iconography - Hanged Man

That idea is working nicely so far but I’ve just drawn the card for another question. I’m planning to start reading my 6 volume book The Gallery of Geography from 1889 so it provided a good excuse to draw a card. :icon_e_wink: In this case the phrase “You see the world with other eyes” jumps out - i...

Re: Thoth iconography - Hanged Man

Drawn regarding the enjoyment of sensual / sexual pleasure without climax - I’m currently concerned with how to increase my happiness without burning out. It looks like very good advice - do the opposite of what people normally do, arrange for some form of external stimulation then just relax and su...
