I haven't done a reading for myself in a while, and well after seeing a certain someone's reading this past weekend I was a bit inspired by a fantastic reading a friend pulled, so I decided to look at the career front, and do a Tree of Life reading, following the path to manifestation

I used the Hermetic Tarot and of course I do not have pics of the cards for this one so if you are really interested you will have to look up the images yourself.

The were in this order:
Kether/Crown, 4 of wands - respite after labor
Chockmah/Contemplation, 6 Swords - success after trial or trouble
Binah/Activation, 3 of Pentacles - working with a constructive force
Chesed/Wisdom, 8 Wands - courage, boldness, freedom
Geburah/Discipline, The Lovers - motivation and separation
Tipharet/Heart, 2 Swords, strength after suffering, balance after force
Netzach/Cycles, The Empress - success, development
Hod/Waking up, The Star, unexpected help, promising opportunities
Yesod/Safety net, Page of Cups - Dreamy imaginative
Malkuth/Outcome, The Hierophant - Manifestation, teaching?

I think it's interesting to note that the upper spheres are primarily populated by the lesser arcana and as manifestation approaches the major arcana begins to come into play

Karmic Potentials, 9 of Swords
Karmic Lesson, Princes of WandsKarmic Energy, The High Priestess
Karmic Opportunities, 10 of Swords
Karmic Roots, The Sun

My new favorite deck, my new favorite reading, not so sure...
mujetdebois: (Tarotspread)
Well it's been a while since I did an online reading or had one done for me, so tonight I went to and got the following:

Is very long so cutting for kindness... )

Pretty dead on too

The Moon

well I guess this is about those regular transformations that occur, just as the moon shifts from one phase to the next, my work life appears to be going through some type of metamorphisis, which is just a reflection of the changes going on there at a higher level.

Strange times

Stay here
To dry your tear
I will be the one
To pull you
Through the mirror
Before you come
Before you come undone

Strange times

~The Black Keys

Seven of Wands (Valor)

Being stalwart in the face of the challenges. It's all about inner strnghth and standing tall

I could use that right about now....
mujetdebois: (Tarotspread)
The Devil

Chain, chain, chain
Chain of fools....

Sometimes those song snippets really do summarize the card in a nutshell

All tied/chained up and nowhere to go. This is about being tied and bound by my own volition, I could escape these bonds, if I really wanted to but I am too tired...too lazy take your pick.

The Grand Duke

The Grand Duke is about things like education, knowledge, wisdom, and even esoteric teachings. He also represents intuition, foresight, and spiritual revelation of the most mysterious and arcane sort.

In other words - pay attention to the mundaune today as it may be an opening to deeper more sprititual practice
mujetdebois: (Tarotcandle)
King of Swords

Judgement calls. This is about the one who is the "decider" (sorry couldn't help myself on that one)It's about authroity and clarity of thought and how the two work together. It's about swift and direct action and not being swayed by emotion or material.

I'm sure that this is about making my own persoanl "tough" decisions and having the guts to stand by them.

Year Ahead

Since we are about to start the secular new year - I thought I would re-share [ profile] goddess_of_art's year ahead spread

I hope to be able to do this on the 1st - since I won't have time on the 31st

mujetdebois: (Tarotcandle)
Three of Coins (Works)

Since the new year is right upon us, this seems oddly apropos. It's about beginnings of financial endeavors and at least in my company the begining of the new fiscal year. It's also about the application of creativity or artisty and turning the fruits of that into a commodity.
mujetdebois: (Tarotspread)
Ten of Coins (Wealth)

I guess it's all about the prezzies, the time spent with friends and family
mujetdebois: (Default)
I've been so busy the past few days I haven't even had time to pull a card. So finally here is one

Four of Coins (Power)

Instead of shooting oneself in the foot here - we are just trying to take down our ride. Right now I am worried about finances (who isn't) security (again sho isn't). And trying to find the balance between being smart/prudent and the desire to have things that I would really like to have.
mujetdebois: (Tarotspread2)
7 of Cups (Temptation)

Dreamin my life away....
This is frequently about about dreaming or navel gazing. Today I look at it like getting lost in Yesod. The need to differentiate the real from the illusory before you start pursuing the dreams
mujetdebois: (Tarotcandle)
Three of Cups (Abundance)

I usually see this as the party card. People getting together and enjoying various celebration. I guess with the big Yule celebration this year that may be one of the gatherings this referes to.

A Time Of Gathering Has Begun
Seasons Change At The Still Of The Sun
The Oak King Bows Down To The Ground
The Holly King Arises Fully Crowned

By Janice Chalas

The sun is not still and this transiton actually occured at fall equinox, but it still feels right - it is the dark time of the year after all.
mujetdebois: (Tarotcandle)
Two of Cups (Love)

Looks like today is twosday

Hmmmmm. Which direction does this feel like today?

I'm going to go with union or connection. Meaning that as of this moment in time, most all of my relationships be they friend or more intimate seem to be pretty well balanced. There are appropriate levels of give and take. There may be another shoe about to drop as both of the cups are covered, so something is still hidden and lying below the surface, but that will apparently be revealed in due time.
mujetdebois: (Tarotspread2)
Page of Wands

It's not about wanting to smack people with a big stick - though I am short tempered today and want to do this.

It's about internal fire, about putting our big boy/girl panties on and getting over ourselves in order to accomplish what lays ahead. We all find inspritation forward momentum and passion in different ways, this is just taking that energy an channeling it in a postive fashion.

I'm gonna live forever
I'm gonna learn how to fly

I feel it coming together
People will see me and cry

I'm gonna make it to heaven
Light up the sky like a flame
Music & Lyrics by Irene Cara

Now that I've had my musical interlude for the day. which is actually a bit of dissonance with what I'm feeling from this. Image wise there are a couple of things striking me about today's card. 1st up the crest on the white flag has what looks like the 2 of the 4 worlds Aziluth and Briah on it. It's almost representing middle self some how trying to unify with higher self. 2nd damn!! angel is playing 2 horns at once

Seriously For today, like everyday it's about putting what feeds me together. Feeding the my spiritual need and nature and some how setting myself apart. Not necessarily fame per se but what I'm getting.
mujetdebois: (Tarotspread)

Oh mah Gawds! It's like the air card.

I think to quote Robert Heinlein "I think I grok it." "Grok means to understand so thoroughly that the observer becomes a part of the observed—to merge, blend, intermarry, lose identity in group experience. It means almost everything that we mean by religion, philosophy, and science—and it means as little to us (because of our Earthly assumptions) as color means to a blind man."

How better to describe the clarity of understanding?
mujetdebois: (Default)
The Sun

Yah know every time I see this card all I can think of is sex in a meadow. Probably because the guy has his hand on her shift.

And with my mind hazed with this cold that's about as far as I am getting today
