So there I was, minding everyone else’s business on 7 different social media platforms as one does, when suddenly I saw it. And it’s a good thing I did, because I can’t even find it now, but there it was at the time, right there in front of me in black and white or, as we “in the biz” say, in 000000 and ffffff: a tweet about Julian Assange‘s tarot cards.
Now, I don’t know about you. I only know about me. Do we have to go over this again? But one thing I do know about other people, and particularly people who pride themselves on being mathematically/computorially/autodidactically inclined is, the very existence of things like tarot cards offends them on some level.
So, naturally, I forwarded the information about Julian Assange‘s tarot cards to the head of the JulianAssangeFanciersGuild. And who among us would not have done the same, I asks yez? Eh?
Some time later I got chatting with the tarot card reader (a tarot card reader who does readings via Twitter: welcome, in one perfect swoop of fellage, to the Twenty-First Century) and she offered to do a reading for me, for free. And as I’m inordinately fond of that particular F Word, I accepted, and that with what I believe is called alacrity. And while you’ll have to do without Julian’s reading, for lo I cannot find it, you can read mine, and it is VERY entertaining, particularly if you know anything about tarot.
Now, you can argue whether or not it “works,” but the one thing you cannot argue is that it is very, very, VERY, and did I mention VERY unlikely that any person’s reading will consist entirely of Major Arcana, ie facecards, over multiple readings and, indeed, multiple readers.
Somehow, it always works out this way for me. Al. Ways.
And so it was this time, mathematically impossible as it was.
Well, can’t disagree with THAT now, can we?
and some further remarks I got via DM:
they follow each other. Resurection 2 regeneration/gestation
I read both neg and pos as part of the read. Positive if best happens. Neg if u fuck up! Either possible according 2 ur actions. Open future….
Freedom…reads situation and best and worst outcome…depends on how u handle it,,,,
So hanged man is the persecuted or the Ego B4 tranSformation. And Death is Transmutation or Inertia/Slow Change. Either can happen..
It a Eyes Wide Open Conscious Choice.,free 2 choose….the old free will thing…it says choose w caution…here’s situation and ur CHOICES
And I choose: to take this as an easy blog post! So, I’m ahead on that whole “productivity” thing already!
They do Tarot in NYC? Here in India Parrots are made to do it on roadside for food.
Well, will your parrot give me a reading?
If you promise good food.
The finest Parrot Chow in all the Interwebs!

She just pulled another card for me: The Hermit
Yep, another Major Arcana. And ironic, given that yesterday I officially became homeless: http://icecoaster.wordpress.com/2011/08/01/the-not-so-happy-wanderer/
And OOOH, looks like I DO get to shack up with Julian Assange after all.
August is looking up already!
