Forgot to cross post this yesterday
I haven't done a reading for myself in a while, and well after seeing a certain someone's reading this past weekend I was a bit inspired by the fantastic reading they pulled, so I decided to look at the career front, and do a Tree of Life reading, following the path to manifestation
I used the Hermetic Tarot and of course I do not have pics of the cards for this one so if you are really interested you will have to look up the images yourself.
The were in this order:
Kether/Crown, 4 of wands - respite after labor
Chockmah/Contemplation, 6 Swords - success after trial or trouble
Binah/Activation, 3 of Pentacles - working with a constructive force
Chesed/Wisdom, 8 Wands - courage, boldness, freedom
Geburah/Discipline, The Lovers - motivation and separation
Tipharet/Heart, 2 Swords, strength after suffering, balance after force
Netzach/Cycles, The Empress - success, development
Hod/Waking up, The Star, unexpected help, promising opportunities
Yesod/Safety net, Page of Cups - Dreamy imaginative
Malkuth/Outcome, The Hierophant - Manifestation, teaching?
I think it's interesting to note that the upper spheres are primarily populated by the lesser arcana and as manifestation approaches the major arcana begins to come into play

All the Sixes
I'm a Thoth tarotist in general, and I was wondering what you all thought about the Sixes. In Thoth tarot the sixes are occasionally difficult because they're so damn perfect that it's hard to see what they mean when they come up in an absolutely stinking spot -- massively ill dignified, or in the warning/to avoid spot of a spread.
So I was wondering how you guys deal with rogue sixes, or any relentlessly cheerful cards that come up in troublesome places?

I haven't done one of these in a while.
The card at the lower left, represents the first decision along your path. The Magician: Mastery over word, mind, and matter. The ability to turn ideas into actions, handle problems, and control one's life. The initiation of new projects, great works, or a new way of life. Eloquent and moving communication. Arcane and eldritch technologies.
The card to the far left represents the first false path that may lead you astray. Aquarius: A friendly humanitarian, honest and loyal to a fault. A perceptive communicator with strong intuitions about human nature. Independence and intellectual inventiveness, coupled with a drive towards the eccentric.
The card in the middle represents the second decision along your path. Prudence: Carefully considering the circumstances. Avoiding an unnecessary or premature commitment. Developing a backup or contingency plan. Determining whether the solution is worse than the problem.
The card at the lower right represents the second false path that may lead you astray. The Hanged Man: Pausing to reflect. Surrendering to an experience. Adjusting to new ideas through sacrifice. Opening oneself to intuition and enhanced awareness. Letting go of past patterns and growing beyond them. Inner peace, faith, and serenity.
The card at the top represents one possible mask of your true destination. The World: Completeness and intricacy of design. A great work. Achievement, reward, and well-earned recognition. A time of success, prosperity, security and joy. May also indicate travel or a change in residence.

Four of Pentacles
I'm a bit shocked in myself I haven't picked up the cards yet this year and we are in the third month. But this is my card for the day.

Just so's you know
I am deleting all of my online "communities" in favor of real interaction. I apologize to those of you who I do not know "FTF", but, I find I've been using this medium and imagining I'm having real interaction, and it's just not. so I'm switching to phone and email. perhaps I'll return at some point, perhaps not.
Take care, see you ftf real soon Current Mood: happy

Tarot Card for 1.13.09
well I guess this is about those regular transformations that occur, just as the moon shifts from one phase to the next, my work life appears to be going through some type of metamorphisis, which is just a reflection of the changes going on there at a higher level.
To dry your tear
I will be the one
To pull you
Through the mirror
Before you come
Before you come undone

Tarot Card 1.5.08
Chain, chain, chain
Chain of fools....
Sometimes those song snippets really do summarize the card in a nutshell
All tied/chained up and nowhere to go. This is about being tied and bound by my own volition, I could escape these bonds, if I really wanted to but I am too weak...to tired...too lazy take your pick.

Last card of the day for 2008
The Grand Duke
The Grand Duke is about things like education, knowledge, wisdom, and even esoteric teachings. He also represents intuition, foresight, and spiritual revelation of the most mysterious and arcane sort.
In other words - pay attention to the mundaune today as it may be an opening to deeper more sprititual practice

Tarot Card 12.30.09
King of Swords
Judgement calls. This is about the one who is the "decider" (sorry couldn't help myself on that one)It's about authroity and clarity of thought and how the two work together. It's about swift and direct action and not being swayed by emotion or material.
I'm sure that this is about making my own persoanl "tough" decisions and having the guts to stand by them.

Since we are about to start the secular new year - I thought I would re-share mythandwonder
's year ahead spread
I hope to be able to do this on the 1st - since I won't have time on the 31st
Tarot Card 12.29.08
Three of Coins (Works)
Since the new year is right upon us, this seems oddly apropos. It's about beginnings of financial endeavors and at least in my company the begining of the new fiscal year. It's also about the application of creativity or artisty and turning the fruits of that into a commodity. Current Mood: bored

Tarot Card 12.26.08
Ten of Coins (Wealth)
I guess it's all about the prezzies, the time spent with friends and family
|Tuesday, December 23rd, 2008|
Tarot Card 12.23.08
I've been so busy the past few days I haven't even had time to pull a card. So finally here is oneFour of Coins (Power)
Instead of shooting oneself in the foot here - we are just trying to take down our ride. Right now I am worried about finances (who isn't) security (again sho isn't). And trying to find the balance between being smart/prudent and the desire to have things that I would really like to have.

Tarot Card 12.19.08
7 of Cups (Temptation)
Dreamin my life away....
This is frequently about about dreaming or navel gazing. Today I look at it like getting lost in Yesod. The need to differentiate the real from the illusory before you start pursuing the dreams

Knight of Cups
Sensitivity, kindness, bliss, new love, advancement, grace, a poetic nature, seduction
Tarot Card 12.17.08
Three of Cups (Abundance)
I usually see this as the party card. People getting together and enjoying various celebration. I guess with the big Yule celebration this year that may be one of the gatherings this referes to.
A Time Of Gathering Has Begun
Seasons Change At The Still Of The Sun
The Oak King Bows Down To The Ground
The Holly King Arises Fully Crowned
By Janice Chalas
The sun is not still and this transiton actually occured at fall equinox, but it still feels right - it is the dark time of the year after all.

Tarot Card 12.16.08
Two of Cups (Love)
Looks like today is twosday
Hmmmmm. Which direction does this feel like today?
I'm going to go with union or connection. Meaning that as of this moment in time, most all of my relationships be they friend or more intimate seem to be pretty well balanced. There are appropriate levels of give and take. There may be another shoe about to drop as both of the cups are covered, so something is still hidden and lying below the surface, but that will apparently be revealed in due time.
Two of Pentacles
Ups and downs, turmoil, loss of balance, being pulled apart, juggling finances.
