Quick Enough

Daily Draw: Spiral Tarot ~ High Priestess

"A fire burns in Sybil's tripod where she sees the Fool's past,  present, future." Steventon

'Past Present Future' is a common quick spread for a reading
along with 'Wants-Bridge-Needs', 'Don't do-Do do', (I did that one once before I drove over to the casino for lunch, don't gamble was the answer). 'Advice-Outcome-Solution' is another, 'Problem-What hinders-What helps' is a good one.

There are still fortune tellers around, always will be I expect; people want to believe someone can tell if there is a dark handsome cab driver in their future. If someone could really tell the future they'd be lottery winners rather than eking out a living in a dingy storefront.

I prefer the queries like above, using the cards to work out a clearer or different viewpoint toward understanding ourselves. Whatever the future holds will get here quick enough.

Most people who wouldn't touch the cards with a ten foot pole, have probably done all this type of readings, they have just done it with paper pencil, and pros and cons. Not nearly as much fun though.

  1. I like the pictures. They often poke my mind more than mere words.

  2. Too many think the Tarot is scary or worse, evil. I don't think they can predict a future just tap into our own innate wisdom for choices. Most people know what they should or shouldn't do they just look for some other form of validation. I am attracted to the artwork and others different takes and interpretation of what basically is the same thread throughout most tarot decks.

    1. people get their divination ideas from 1950' B movies.
      they also get their religion from christmas cards. A pet peeve of an aunt who is an ordained pastor.

  3. If it is all the same to you, I'd prefer a dark handsom prince. Or does that make me a snob?
    Love three card spreads. Quick and concise

    1. I'm not even sure dark handsome would be a delightful start anymore in these sad days.
      Couldn't make it with a prince though for sure. How could you connect with someone whose bath is drawn and tooth paste is applied to brush for him. I'd sooner try to make a go with someone raised by wolves or monkeys

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
