Well. The lovely Posterous is closing down because Twitter bought it I can’t say I understand what that really means or why Posterous can’t keep hosting my blog but nonetheless, I’ve had to move house. Here we are on WordPress…pastures new and all that. Ah, WordPress.
Anyway, we’re not here to talk blogging platforms. I think it’s time for a card and since I’m feeling all *tech* today I guess this calls for Barbara Moore and Aly Fell’s Steampunk Tarot.
The Seven of Pentacles. The interim report card. I have a soft spot for this card, it appeared in a reading my love gave to me just the other day, helping me to see that I am on the right path, that the changes I’m creating in my life right now will bear and are bearing fruit. Like the man in the image, this is a time to step back and look at what’s happening in my life, to check my progress and do a little steering if necessary. It’s a very quiet-feeling card to me, but it implies hard work, both in the past and still to come.
I’ve got a few projects bubbling along at the moment, and in the midst of this I decided I just couldn’t keep going to my much-maligned job any more. It’s changed beyond recognition and I no longer enjoy it, so I’ve quit. Fun for a second…and then the inevitable worry about money and rent and food kicks in. But I feel confident. I need to put a lot in right now, to create the life I want, but this card reassures me that I’ve taken the right steps so far and that I’m on a tricky but very true path.
I’m a 30-something writer, artist, tarot reader, and perpetual explorer of the space between thought, feeling, and action.
I believe that spirituality and ritual are for everybody. I’m about the journey, in all of its messy, non-linear, chaotic iterations. I am excited by anticapitalist business and living with my whole entire self present. I use tarot cards to bring forth hidden truth, and ritual to affirm my commitment, over and over, to my ever-shifting path.
