Hello again! New year, same shit (sadly); so we’re going to do Tarot to make us feel better. No Tarot experience is complete without music:
I wrote a rundown of this kind of reading in this post, if you have any questions that would be a good place to start.
Who I Was
The Ten of Pentacles is a card of fulfillment and abundance, with the number ten representing completion. As a woman, I would be remiss in not mentioning the shake-up that started in Hollywood that has, and continues, to ripple out to every other industry. While I know it seems odd to associate this with completion, when the surface of this has barely been scratched, think of what would have happened only a few years ago. I thought the Weinstein scandal would be a blip and people would move on, just as it has been in years past. But, it didn’t. Women are making her voices heard, and that is one hell of an accomplishment.
Who I Am
The Five of Wands is a lack of focus. Wands represent the mind, and I think lack of focus perfectly sums up the collective mind at the present moment. We are endlessly barraged with news, we bounce from a million different stories, a million different ideas, a million different opinions and never manage to line up. It makes us crazy, makes our problems seem insurmountable. We need to find calm and understanding in the new year.
Who I Will Be
The Daughter of Cups is kind and gentle, she represents creativity and our emotional natures. She is the dreamer in all of us. The one who wants the world, and the people in it, to be better. To be kind, to listen, to be understanding. When I pull the Daughter of Cups, I think of Derek Black. The people he met in his life could have very easily hated him for the way he was raised to believe. They could have gotten in his face and shouted. Instead, they showed him the way he was raised to view the world didn’t line up with how the world actually is. They took on the best traits of the Daughter of Cups. That is how he went from believing in white genocide to believing race is a social construct.
I know the topic of this seems heavy and esoteric, but the state of the world and how we treat each other is something I’ve been thinking a lot about lately. We will never be better if we keep making the same mistakes.
On a lighter note, I have been loving Springtime Carnivore lately. What music have you been listening to?
As always, thanks for reading and let me know what you think in the comments. Bye!
