Let me see if I've got this right. The python prophet who inhabited this cave as Pythia, who received her knowledge from Gaia, was eventually killed by Apollo, who took her place as top seer. Gaia who we met yesterday, was no fool and transferred the ability of Seeing to mortals in the form of dreams. Leaving Apollo to twiddle his thumbs in the dark.
On the pillars behind the scene Apollo inscribed the message "Know Thyself". I'm reminded by this card why I no longer read the cards for others. The questions querents ask about themselves they are capable of answering themselves, they just don't want to think it through, or enters the realm of future telling which isn't possible. The questions they ask about other people are none of their business. I'm with Apollo here, know thyself, and everything thing else of import comes clear.
"Prophecy: Two bull's eyes out of a possible million." ~ Mark Twain 1835-1910
The cards open previously closed doors to my own heart with their merciless quest for the truth, nothing but the truth. They flay the soul and make me say thank you afterward. Each hour spent with my cards is a new lesson to be learned. Viva la Journey.
