Chain Tarot: Ask a Question Before Clicking Here!!!!!

Hi all,

The idea of this thread is to randomly select a Tarot card, and then leave it here for the next person who comes along to comment on, and explain how it relates to thier life, why it is that they were meant to find this card here.

In turn, this person then leaves a card behind of thier own, for the next person and so on.

If you doi not own a deck of cards, then go here: www.facade.com/ , and select a single card at random, form the 'one card' option, and just post the name of the card here, along with the description as well if you like.

Not sure how this thread will develop, but here goes:



How do you relate to this card, why was it meant for you?

Don't forget to leave a card behind for the next person.

As this thread develops, it would be a good idea to have a question in mind before coming in, and then see what card has been left behind, and take it as the answer to your question.

Draco [/i]

Draco, fabulous idea!

Justice: When I see it...I often think there is a duality of feeling in the querent. For instance, if someone vacillates between two modes of feeling about a person or a situation in order to find a higher balance. (He loves me, he loves me not.)
Furthermore, Justice is also an indication that someone is making a decision based on logic, rather than emotion.
ANother meaning behind the card is that karma is about to be re-paid to someone, teaching them a valuable lesson. This card is neither good or bad in its meaning. You just have to glean it's intent by viewing the surronding cards and their placements.

OK! Here is my card for the chain:

The VI of cups!

Hi Jen,

I liked your analysis of Justice, but what did it mean to you personally at the time, what was it saying to you?

I forgot to ask a question before I came here. I was too eager to see what card had been left.

In any case, I see the 6 of Cups as relating to how I am feeling at the moment. I am greatly content today. It's a lovely Spring day and I am wondering when my partner is going to get here so we can go and sit outside a pub and have a beer and a smoke. I think the 6 of Cups is all about these kinds of pleasantries, and contentments.

Also, in that I have a new scanner, I have been looking for photographs to scan, so I can post it on the picture board, but the only pics I could find that were any good were pics from my childhood. I've never been one to have my photo taken since I was a teenager, I cringe when cameras come out. The 6 of Cups is associated with childhood, innocence, memories. So I relate to it in that way.

I wish I had remebered that I should ask a question when I notice that there is a new post here, and then take the card as my answer. I'll remember next time.

Anyway, here's the next one:



I wish I had titled this thread, 'Chain Tarot: Remember: Ask Question Before Clicking Here!' Oh well, perhaps Mav might be able to change it for me, I don't know if I can change the title in edit.

ADDED:

Okay, I've changed the title now, so what does this card mean in response to your question?

Draco

Hi Draco & all..



Ace of Swords - to me this says, I must be absolutely sure of what ever as it cuts both ways!
I took this as to be careful at the moment. This may not be the traditional reading, but that's was 'jumped out'. ops: Very confused and indecisive.

Anyway, the next card is:

6 of Pentacles.

Sorry about the lack of graphics.

Re: Chain Tarot: Ask a Question Before Clicking Here!!!!!

I stumbled upon this old thread yesterday and saw that it was finishing with the 6 of Pentacles – a card which was actually meaning nothing special to me. I only thought that it was the second time in the last 3 months that I was coming across the 6 of Pentacles – and that everything has a reason.

Today I went to my yoga course and as I arrived last minute before we start, the only empty space to unfold my mat was next to a man that most people avoid, a huge man, pretty heavy and stiff, noisy and with all his body covered by psoriasis patches. His gasping for breath with every single movement easily throws you out of any fine balancing exercise, his full body struggles with every simple asana. My first thought as I was unfolding my mat was ‘oh, no!’. My second thought was the 6 of Pentacles.

6 of Disks, the Lord of Material Success – perhaps prosperity is coming to me, I don’t know it. But apart from it, it is also a card of nobility and generosity, of sharing in full consciousness. It belongs to Beauty, to the Heart of the Hexagram, to the place where you come after you have mastered Strength and Kindness, Justice and Mercy. Let the Sun shine and warm, integrate the lessons of the Fall, Healing (absorb the Light) and Redemption (reflect the Light). Apollo and Dionysus, the Lion, the Phoenix, the Child.

So today I understood that the difficult part is not to sigh and tolerate the heavy man in the yoga course, but to smile and share the air, the space, the prana in the room with him; and realize they belong to you no more than they belong to him.

I leave here the 4 of Cups, perhaps it will find someone who may use it.

Vinyasa

Re: Chain Tarot: Ask a Question Before Clicking Here!!!!!

Four of cups...
the four in all suits is the card of divine discontent. Although everything seems happy and rewarding still there is doubt and suspicion.
This four of hearts is negative and positive as this dissatisfaction can lead to the realization of ones own unreal expectation and looking harder at the relationship.

Hmm I guess I can say I have been in this state a very long time but maybe this will help me look closer at myself, my own state and questions. I have found myself suspicious and wonder why, why why. Though my relationship has seemingly ended in the fall I still feel this. Something to ponder.

Re: Chain Tarot: Ask a Question Before Clicking Here!!!!!

Hi all,

I stumbled upon this thread while killing time.

7 of Wands:

I openly groaned when I saw that this was the last card before my post.

To me, this card means hard graft. It means that dedication to a cause worthy of such focus can eventually bring rewards, but these rewards may take a time in coming.

The story of my life so far!!!


My card:

3 of Pentacles

Re: Chain Tarot: Ask a Question Before Clicking Here!!!!!

Thank you R4VEN

Ah this is not a bad card, kind of describes whats going on for me at the moment. I am working towards some future goal, its in the early stages and I need to save some money in order to fulfill my goal. Typical Capricorn Sun eh?! I am working with a new team at work and so far we seem to work well together. I think this is like a 'teamwork' card.

9 of pentacles

Voodoo Tarot of New Orleans
Rada Houngan (King of Swords)


The Voodoo Tarot of New Orleans
I went and drew this one. Have no clue. I was not thinking anything except "I wonder how Draco want me to do this" and I get this card. Plus on this site Draco suggested, The voodoo deck was the only one I recognized.

Re: Chain Tarot: Ask a Question Before Clicking Here!!!!!

Thats funny, I was asking about me and my mate/fella. He is a Libra! Not sure what it means though when his significator comes out like that.

The one I picked:Page of Swords

Re: Chain Tarot: Ask a Question Before Clicking Here!!!!!

I believe Tarot is a full symbolic system which does not respond directly to questions (this is why it is symbolic, after all), but which functions on multiple levels and invites its reader to discover the underlying truths. Usually, the answers we are looking for, lie already in our subconscious - and every symbolic system (like Tarots, dream interpretation etc) alludes to those hidden answers, based on the assumption that there is a bridge connecting the universal to the private symbolism.

I do not think I am entitled to speak on behalf of someone absent (Draco), but my understanding of both his original and his subsequent posts were that, who opens this thread gets an open invitation to meditate on a specific card and its qualities: to see the connections to their life facts, and perhaps discover a truth they were looking for - or a truth they should be looking for even if they have tried to ignore it.

When I opened again this 'ancient' thread and had my brief experience in the yoga course soon afterwards, I thought how little value it has to tolerate someone because you want to feel generous, and how real kindness lies in believing deep inside that the others are entitled to exactly the same as you are: so you are not generous by 'allowing to', you are One and Equal with them. And this was my grasp of the 6 of Pentacles.

Now, having the Page of Swords in front of me, I am brought far away from the 'spheres' where I usually wander: to Earth, to the Root, to the Kingdom. But it is the card of Venus in Air, of the personification of Earth in Air, a card connected to Caput Algol, so for different reasons it was right that the card found me. A card of acumen which can turn very destructive, discriminating and egoistic when trapped behind inner fears and insecurities. The antidote is using the intellect to serve generosity and kindness - back to the qualities of the 6 of Pentacles. Perhaps it is a warning of alertness against revengeful or indiscreet people.

I leave here the 9 of Wands for whom feels like/needs to meditate on it.

Vinyasa

Re: Chain Tarot: Ask a Question Before Clicking Here!!!!!

9 of wands - interesting, was thinking about career... different paths, recently got a new job, just part time relating to what I am studying and I thought it would be brilliant, confirm to me that this career path will be fulfilling... instead I am even more confused now, and feeling like I will never reach a career I will enjoy. Feel like I want to give up now, and just get a job for the money rather than contribute to the world and do something I want.... Soooo, maybe I really will reach a position I am happy with, just have to trust myself that I will and be disciplined

Next card... Page of Cups

I take the Nine of Wands to mean that I need to stop nursing old wounds and simply let them heal in their own time.

I'm leaving behind the Knight of Cups.

I asked about how to approach work today after having a very trying day yesterday, so I take the High Priestess to mean that I should continue to trust my intuition. I am leaving the Hermit.

Thank you! I'll take the 10 of Pentacles..and leave for the next person...

Three of Cups


In general, things should be going well. You can look forward to at least one pleasant reunion with someone or something that you have been apart from for some time. It also can mean celebration – your own or someone that you care about - such as the celebration around a new baby, wedding, or other happy occasion.
