So I got back from the Dreamforce conference with tired achy feet and just barely got to the lobby in time for a glass of wine and, and well a tarot reading. There she was, Margaret, set up in the lobby with all of her tarot cards laid out in front of her and I said what the heck and sat down to a reading. I didn’t tell her at first that I read tarot cards because I didn’t want her to be self conscious. But she gave me a helluva reading. At the core, the King of Swords and the King of Pentacles – she said not bad Rachel, not bad. You’re not a genius and you’re not rich, but you’re doing pretty good. And what covered me – the Hanged Man – things are about to change, but I need to wait and just hang back. Isn’t that what I’ve already intuited? Yes.
Then partnership – two of cups – good. Then in the next three months, ace of wands, here it comes, a creative, intuitive, a natural change but alongside a warning card – the four of pentacles – don’t worry about what you give up, take the plunge.
But she held back the outcome card, she had turned it over at the beginning and she told me I could change it. I said what is it – the 10 of swords – only her deck was a set of medieval cats so the images were different from the Rider Waite deck I use – and instead of a man lying face down with ten swords sticking out of his back, this was a cat face with swords pointing at its neck. She didn’t like it and she said it was a bad card. I said I didn’t think so and we talked about it – she then referred to her book and sure enough despite its ominous look, it signifies a culmination – an end to disappointment – the card is actually showing a sunrise and a beginning after a difficult end.
I pranced up to my room and went out for some pud thai afterwards – feeling as if yeah, you’re right.
