I’m still technically on hiatus but you guys know I can’t resist talking about tarot. And the Tarot Apokalypsis is worth talking about.

Erik C. Dunne and Kim Huggens, the ones behind the Tarot Illuminati, are teaming up again for a new deck and so far it looks amazing. Someone come hold me.

Modified: The Paralysis Web/8 of Swords Spread

Though I am a lifetime, platinum card-holding member of Sam’s Wholesale Depression Club, I have not suffered a relapse in 2.5 years [personal best!! ask your doctor about fugue states and if they might be right for you!!]  However, the side effects remain. Something I am currently struggling with is an infuriating “art block” that I’ve narrowed down to being more of a state of internal paralysis. Years of being inert has become a manifest state of inertia. I’ve still got that voice in my brain - you know the one - so it’s difficult to understand all the factors involved from an objective standpoint.

I’ve named this modified version of therosebell's spread the “8 of Swords Spread” to reflect the mental nature of the place I'm trapped in.

Anchor Points: 2S - 4W - XXI The World - 6W - 9W - KP

Center [Me]: QS

Point of Undoing: XIX The Sun - 5P

Notes: 

  • Queen of Swords… Queen of Swords [UGLIEST OF LAUGHTER] No, no, that’s not my significator; nuh-uh, whatever gave you that idea? you must be mistaken… #gpoy #me #selfiest of selfies
  • A few repeat performances here. Shout out to 2S and The World. Hi guys; fancy meeting you again. It’s almost as if you’re trying to tell me something - ???
  • 5P was a jumper while shuffling at the exact moment I decided on its position [HOW to undo the inertia]. This deck is overly fond of the ol’ clue-by-four.
  • A reading about creativity issues featuring 3 Wands cards. Appropriate.

Briefly:

  1. 2 of Swords - SHIT OR GET OFF THE POT. I can never choose between one idea or the other [5 million]; I have to have them aaaaaaallllll. But I can’t have them aaaaaaallllll. So I sit. Doing nothing.
  2. 4 of Wands - Hmm. 4 is stability; foundation. I do lack foundation re: my skills, making it very difficult and frustrating to turn my vision into reality. On the rare occasion I manage to complete something, I have a hard time celebrating it, because it’s not perfect. 
  3. XXI The World - AHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAA!!! Too many ideas; too many directions; too many inspirations. Too many and I don’t know how to unify them.
  4. 6 of Wands - Just. Fucking. DO IT. I’m also going to hazard a guess at something to do with being singled out for achievements in the past and the unwanted attention that brought.
  5. 9 of Wands - If you produce something, at some point you’re going to have to defend it. I’ve spent a lifetime fighting myself and I’m tired. I do lack the will to persevere and fight for what I want, even in small amounts.
  6. King of Pentacles - MFKP. Basically the antithesis of everything I am or believe in or even understand, for that matter.

Center: Queen of Swords - The mind is all that matters. From my cranial throne, the whole world is mine. Here I am free from the constraints [and pains] of the physical. It is a state of independence and truth, but also isolation and detachment. 

Q:2S - This is an unhealthy relationship. The Queen made the same journey the neophyte in the 2S is undertaking, so she sees nothing wrong with it and therefore no reason to change the behaviour. 

Q:4W - I don’t exactly know how these two cards relate, but it feels like they are worlds apart. The 4W seems frivolous compared to the Queen’s severity. Bitch needs to lighten up and remember the good times before she took on the heavy mantle of rulership, mebbe? A little spontaneity would be good.

Q:XXI The World - The World [as a concept] is the Queen’s natural environment: she has it at her mental fingertips at all times. Why would she ever want to leave her mind palace? If the elements of The World are to be united though, the Queen will have to take her shoes off and get dirty.

Q:6W - The Queen understands victory, but mainly from an intellectual point. She has never had to bloody her hands and so she struggles to grasp even the most basic of field manoeuvres. Accustomed to being Queen, she cannot deal with even the smallest failure.

Q:9W - The Queen is prepared to fight [her sword is upright], but the warrior is tired from doing constant battle. Still she pushes; there is no room for weakness in this holiest of quests. But how many of the enemies she defends herself from are imaginary?

Q:KP - *hissssssssss* Swords and Pents are naturally at odds with each other. The Queen’s major weakness is that, while she KNOWS how to do everything, she doesn’t know how to DO anything. Massive disconnect between mind and body.

Undoing: XIX The Sun & 5P - The child on the horse directly references the man on the horse in the 6W; he even carries a staff. His other hand points to the sun, which bears the face of a stern-looking woman [aside: I fucking live for when cards align like this!] almost  as if the kid is saying, “This. This right here is your problem.”

Looking again at the 6W, I notice the face of the rider, who is totally giving “Bitch, please” face. If someone were to ask him, “How did you know you could do it?” he would answer, “It never occurred to me that I couldn’t.” This is the “anything is possible” attitude of children, before the face of authority dims the light of the sun and tells them, “No”.

The Tarot Illuminati book specifically title The Sun card “the Light of Truth”. It is not at odds with the Queen of Swords then. A shift in perspective is needed. How? The 5 of Pentacles [ugh 5’s are my life story]. The connection between mind [Swords] and body [Pentacles] must be re-established. The body has been sent out into the cold; neglected; denied. But who else is supposed to accomplish the Queen’s vision?? The [biggest] conflict in the spread between the QS and the KP confirms this.

The Good: The Tarot Illuminati never disappoints. 

The Bad: None of this is exactly a newsflash.

The Ugly: I am so very, very, very attached to experiencing the world intellectually, that the mere thought of trying anything else actually makes me ill.

"Who The Hell Are You?" Spread

I used this spread just to help out figuring out a person. You can do so on yourself, too. I find that it provides a lot of insight.

  1. The Head - How they go about making decisions and choices/what drives them to make the choices they make.
  2. Shoulders - The burdens they carry or the burdens they have carried (will more than likely be two cards).
  3. Heart - The core of this person.
  4. What Crosses the Heart - What they’ve had to face/what challenges they’re going through.
  5. Spine - What supports this person/keeps them going.
  6. Hands - What this person is capable of (will more than likely be two cards).
  7. Groin - Desires and wants.
  8. Feet - What their future holds/The path they’re going down. (will more than likely be two cards).
  9. The Ground - This person’s foundation.
  10. This is basically outside influences on said person.
  11. How has the outside influences effected them.

Happy Divining!

Tarot of the Sacred Feminine by Floreana Nativo & Franco Rivolli [May 2014]
I am going to buy the hell out of this deck.
Even though it has about 20 depictions of MMC/triple goddess.
And even though there are far too many depictions of motherhood for me to comfortably relate to.
And even though there is likely to be a fair bit of ~*fluff*~ involved.
Because the bits in between are yaaaassssssssssss. And if it’s anything like the Fire Tarot (by the same authors) the card images all depict world myths, including Abrahamic. I might not understand the Fire Tarot one little bit, but it is gorgeous and I think the two would make a lovely set.

This is I think the third hannibal tarot card I’ve seen and it’s just getting to be a nightmare now. This tarot teasing isn’t fucking funny. Someone needs to make a full deck. I have needs for such a thing.


*SMASHES THINGS*

Hey, now…

I’m working on the Major Arcana, slowly but surely. (Some of the characters/events I want to use should happen in later seasons, so emphasis on the slowly.) Watch this post for more info.

oHHHHHHHHH! Well now we can all stalk your progress with appropriate levels of dedication :D

This is funnier than it should be.

Why do I want to make a spread out of this…?

Situation, bad place, good place?

Oh, that would work too…I was thinking like…the actual doors/puns being the positions like…Door: The path directly ahead of you
More Doors: Alternate paths
Gone Door: A path that’s closed off to you
I admittedly don’t know enough re: Tolkien to properly use the references as is XDD Although I have to say, I’m really surprised I don’t see more Tolkien inspired spreads around!

Someone needs to make a Pop Culture Tarot Spread book or something

I’ve considered it! At this point I probably have enough of them for my own book XDD; But I’m not sure of all the legal bits and I’m too lazy to figure it out…

I actually did start writing [tarot told me to :D] a Pop Culture Tarot Spreads book, until I realised what kind of copyright, permissions, trademarks, branding blah blah blah bullshit would have to be dealt with before publishing and NOPE.

i used the standard 3-CARD SMILEY FACE SPREAD for this in the hopes of a more optimistic reading.



you got a REVERSED 10 OF CHALICES, a 5 OF BATONS, and a 2 OF SWORDS. since your question was more of a command than anything, the spirit world also gave my dogs the gift of tongues to punish me for entertaining YOUR insolence, so now i’ve got all these dismembered tongues to clean up off the floor. thx.

the REVERSED 10 OF CHALICES implies you’re going to be M E G A  M E G A  D R U N K at some point in the future, like way too drunk. funky drunk. slam drunk. you’ll probably meet a street band made up of five dudes who only play batons percussion instruments. you will accidentally tip one of them 20 dollars instead of 3 dollars, and that will start you on a whirlwind romance, wherein you will discover the perilous highs and comfortable lows of dating a street musician.

OR

the 2 OF SWORDS implies you’ll run into a sleepwalker with a DANGEROUS-ASS HABIT of carrying swords around on her somnambulist journeys, for safety. you will rescue her from walking into traffic, she will sleep-challenge you to a swordfight, and it will end in a very meet-cute draw with minimal blood. you will embark on a whirlwind romance here also, but all your great couple moments will be tainted with the knowledge that she might accidentally stab you in her sleep.

OR

both.

[ugly laughter] This isn’t supposed to be a serious reading, but the funny thing is, IT IS. Sorry, nonny, NO HAPPY ENDINGS FOR YOU.

Then again, the problem could just be that the reading uses the LS Universal. That deck is a dick. But I showed it… I showed them ALL.

hellboundwitch:

I’ve talked about slumps, dry spells, and disconnects before — this is a more personalized approach to finding a solution. I’d like to update my original post, but until then…here’s the spread I was testing out earlier.

I decided to just go ahead and put the spread out as it is now. I like it and I think it works. But because this is literally my first draft of the spread, any feedback would be even more appreciated than usual!

Card One is where you were before the slump.

Card Two is what caused the slump or allowed it to happen.

Card Three is where you’re at now.

So, before we move on to the next cards, I want to explain this progression. I think it’s important, especially in these situations, to sort of check in on where you’re actually at and where you were before. Comparing the situations and seeing how you got to where you’re at is important, because it helps you understand what happened, and that’s how you make a plan to get out. 

Card Four is what keeps you down — this is why you haven’t moved on and why you feel like you’re in the slump to begin with. Think of it as your obstacle — this is what you’re up against.

Card Five is your first step out of the slump. Something I really focus on a lot in these situations is “Well what do I do NEXT? What do I do now??” This is your answer to that question.

Card Six is what I call the signs on the path. It’s what keeps you moving forward and what stops you from sliding back down into the slump.

Card Seven is where you’re headed. One of the keys to pulling yourself out of the slump and continuing onward is knowing what you’re actually working toward. It’s easy to lose your sense of direction down there — this is your North Star.
