Deadly Sin

Daily Draw: Ostara Tarot ~ 9 of Cups

Is this 9 of Cups pride and indulgence? Or resting after  accomplishments?

Does it matter? Is one a earned retreat, and one a cup of sin running over? Is pride a sin? What stage of pride? We need self confidence to make our way through life and suppressing pride in accomplishments seems counter intuitive.

If pride is a sin does bragging rate a red R on our forehead? What signifies crossing the line? When it transfers from thought to word? Is it even possible to brag silently without it become silent sin?

The church of old white men lists pride, greed, lust, envy, gluttony, wrath and sloth as deadly sins.  Where does that put the parents who let their baby die and rot in its swing? Or the ones that fed their boy to the pigs. Or making and sharing pornography involving a baby? Home free? This is one weird world. Maybe there should be a neon list of the seven deadly religions.

  1. I suppose there is wholesome and unwholesome pleasure, with the key factor being if anyone is harmed.
    I want to know how they got a cat to balance a teacup on its head...

  2. Maybe resting after you paint your barn today.
    I wonder how soon these iconic religious figures have left to be worshiped? Humanity got tired of the gods of Olympus and a set of worshiped gods before them. How soon before we are done with the eons of megalomaniacs. Of course, then we will have all those emperors and dictators to deal with. Why can't people find their own way, instead of finding someone or something else to make their decisions?
