Tarot And Its Meaning...

I thought I would give this aspect of my life its own discussion.

Tonight's draw

Seven Of Cups

http://www.biddytarot.com/cards/seven_cups.jpg

The Seven of Cups depicts an individual faced with the mysterious appearance of strange images from cups in a floating cloud. Clouds conjure ideas, dreams, thoughts, illusions, transitions and mystery. Though the character’s back is toward us, we can see from the half-raised arm-gesture that the apparitions before him are something of a surprise. The various prizes appearing from the cups are a mixture of positive and negative visions. These cups each have a single item rising from them – a snake, representing wisdom and knowledge; a shrouded figure, representing the need for illumination; a human head, representing a companion for the conjurer; a tower, representing stability and power; treasure, representing abundance and wealth; a laurel wreath, representing victory or honour, and status; and a dragon, representing supernatural forces.

Not much surprises me but some things do cause me to puzzle on matters...

Off to the club for some dancing and maybe meet some new people.

Hope everyone is a having a great Saturday night! Smile

Feel free to join in and play along. Got a deck of Tarot cards?

Pick one a day or when the spirit moves you to do so, share it here.. One rule, nothing is reversed... (Just to make it simpler)

Peace out.

Even negative cards can have a positive outcome...

Haven't drawn a card since the 7 of cups. Tonight I shuffled the deck and drew the 4 of cups!

I seem to be always at the doorway yet never passing though.

So much contemplation and yet not moving forward. Perhaps life is just allowing the world to move around you. Like being the sun...

Gonna wait a few days and draw another card...

The odds of me drawing this card so often is "spooky".

Interested ? Did read about it and had/have(?) some tarot cards, but never really got into it.

@saab,
I found that very interesting and I am sensing that is why I have been using the tarot.

It seems to be a plausible way of stimulating the intellect and thus avoiding the same ruts and/or pitfalls that one habitually stumbles into. Thank you Saab for the appropriately added insight. Smile

@RexRed,
Good article, saab. Long time since I possessed a pack, but I agree with the following 100%!

Quote:
The tarot cards images work like the pictures of the Rorschach test on which we can project the inner workings of our minds.

This way, a tarot spread can be used to clarify a decision making process, analyze problems, better relate to our world and ultimately stimulate our intuition and gain a better self-understanding.

@vonny,
I agree Vonny, I might also add that it is fanciful to think there is sometimes a hand of wisdom guiding our fate and not just sheer chance. In our modern society we are often cocoons of self ego and it is nice to sometimes feel a non judgmental presence that cares for the cosmos other than the stagnant sterility of organized religion .

It would make me nervous when my mother used to stare at the clouds while driving down the road but it was her creative mind that I now recall as being the great gift she was imparting.

@RexRed,
It's amazing what you can see in the clouds if you let your imagination loose to explore them. As a child, I played games with my mother - searching the skies for images, and writing stories about them. Innocent fun, but it sowed the seeds of creativity in me.

Today's Tarot Card draw... Ten Of Swords

This is the second time I have drawn this card too... and I really shuffled the deck! Weird huh? It holds more significance now. I rarely draw cards because I don't want to cloud the vision. Cards like these need a few days to digest their full implications. I will pick another card in a few more days. Comments are welcome.

Well I feel like this has been the story of my life.

I have survived this and still I persevere. From being bullied in school to petty jealous "friends" who have no real love within themselves.

I don't hold animosity, although, I have allowed myself to at times to fall into the downward spiral of others.

Really, the love constant is up to me and I plan to continue pursuing it, adversity only strengthens my resolve.

There is a new hope on the horizon and good times certainly are to come.

It is not fun being betrayed but we all have to sometimes accept the hand we are dealt and move on...

Weakness becomes strength through revelation.

Like the phoenix from the fire, reincarnation is a time of change and transformation.

Out of the smoldering ashes...

I have the scars to prove it now and the great wisdom comes in not being fooled again... Smile

@RexRed,
i cannot interpretet (? spellling) pictures. I can only say how I feel.
The first one I really like. It is in itself beautiful, shows a single man surronded by calmness. Brings out good feelings in me.

@RexRed,
Thesecond picture is far too chaotic for me. There is nothing restful or peaceful about this picture despite it showing a time of the day which should be peaceful whatever it is sunrise or sunset.

@RexRed,
The third one shows a landscape which could have been so beautiful.
The colours choosen - they do not seem to be natural - are far too hard. It does not give a feeling of a kind landscape and as art it is for me pure kitch and kind of do not fit you at all.
Ido not know you and we meet seldom on a2k except for pictures as my picture of you would have fitteted the first one,

Hope you do not mind me being so open.

@RexRed,
Fascinating how the cards can help one examine one's own feelings. They enable us to explore the emotions we bury deep inside ourselves, emotions which need to be brought out into the open for the healing/cleansing processes to take place. Emotionally draining, but necessary.

I don't know if I would be brave enough to draw a card - it's a bit frightening to bare one's soul, even privately. You are brave to read the Ten of Swords in the way that you do. Your story is sad, but full of hope. As you say

@saab,
I agree with your assessment on all three pictures Saab. I chose them (or rather they chose me) because of the surreal, dreamlike patina to them.

A new landscape that requires a refocusing and adjustment of color to bring life into perspective.

The middle picture, the clouds seemed like houses in the sky...

@vonny,
There is always a bright side to every bleak, dark and foreboding picture.

There always a choice to never be defeated even when you are down.

Losing is still winning when judges are consumed by the politics of the game.

Self pity is a bad trip. I am not perfect, I have my faults and I will not justify them by lowering others in my perceptions.

I have been loved, I have been hated.

I guess the worst thing someone can say to me is "Don't let it go to your head." as if I have a propensity for self worship. Go ahead, rain on my parade... my cake has been left in the rain more than once...

I neither worship or loath myself. I guess I just live and try to survive from day to day. I have hopes and dreams and yes, I have feelings like everyone else.

I generally know who my enemies are and I have been loved beyond what I have deserved at times.

When I have been loved (and I certainly have), I have often felt undeserving such to the point that I have done everything in my power to ruin that love. Of this I am often haunted.

When I have been treated with animosity I have sometimes bent over backwards to obtain favor even at the expense my own self pride.

I guess I am human and faulted, even my own words now seem naive and childish.

Why I would get a card like this on a day like today? I am not sure but, "I won't let it go to my head"... Smile
