Reading The Cards
Working a full day down in Eatonville again today and tired cuz an almost full can of diet Pepsi got knocked over into the bed and flooded us out just as I was getting to sleep. Feh. The summer that I was 19 I spent my days sitting behind a card table in a tiny stall at the French Market in New Orleans, reading tarot cards for tourists and passers by. After paying the stall rent I ended up making even less money than I would have in retail, but it was fun. And it was amazing to me what intimate things people (mostly women) would tell me. I always began by having the seeker look through the cards and pick out one to represent her and it never failed that while doing so she would tell me more than enough about herself for me to be able to do a good reading. Yesterday I stumbled across a site that automates this process, having you complete a short questionnaire then picking a card for you. I’m none to sure about its accuracy, since it picked for me a much more powerful card than the one I have always used, but still I thought it was fun enough to pass along.
You are The Magician
Skill, wisdom, adaptation. Craft, cunning, depending on dignity.
Eleoquent and charismatic both verbally and in writing,
you are clever, witty, inventive and persuasive.
The Magician is the male power of creation, creation by willpower and desire. In that ancient sense, it is the ability to make things so just by speaking them aloud. Reflecting this is the fact that the Magician is represented by Mercury. He represents the gift of tongues, a smooth talker, a salesman. Also clever with the slight of hand and a medicine man – either a real doctor or someone trying to sell you snake oil.
