|A retreat for the well-being of my mind from the insanity of the life that is mine.|

Yes, yes, its my second posting today but i'm well... y'know... still bored.
So bored that i got a little curious about this whole Tarot card thing so i tried a 'Web Tarot' from Facade.com (who claim to have been hosting this site which gives free readings BEFORE Netscape ever came along).
Anyways, i tried the Personal one first in order to establish the overarching facts about myself and so forth and here's what i got:
(Equivalent of "10/02/1980")
Judgement: A swift and conclusive decision. The resolution of a matter long unanswered. A change in point of view, most frequently towards greater enlightenment. Final balancing of karma.This particular birthdate indicates a very pure instance of this card.
(Equivalent of "Patrick Roger Wei-Min Pincon")
Tyr is the symbol of the warrior. This rune most represents masculine force and potency, and frequently victory in battle. Beware though, for this rune represents directly the Norse god whose name it bears - Tyr stands out in legend for having sacrificed his hand that he might bind Fenrir, a monstrous wolf that threatens to swallow the world. As such, this rune is known to portend a great victory that can be bought with a terrible sacrifice. Tyr is also the god of law, frequently placed in such position above Odin. In this aspect, protection of justice may be had by this rune.
(Equivalents of "10/02/1980")
Alec Guinness, Charles Manson, Chuck Yeager, Joel Grey, Meyer Lansky, Peter Gabriel, Salvador Dali, Umberto Eco, V. I. Lenin, William T. Sherman

Oooookay, so let me get this right - by some strange twist i set things straight while (probably) killing myself in the process? *doh* The whole 'words that define my public and private personas' is a little... erm... 'funky' to say the least (c'mon, i'm embodied by being part of a whale???). And yes, its nice to know that Charles Manson is my birthmate (*ulp*)...
Next up i tried a tarot reading to a specific question! Using the Minchiate Tarot with the Cross and Triangle spread i asked the cards the question "Who am i and what is my fate?" (Note: No nice looking pics of the cards - damn blogger!). The cards replied:
The first card, the significator, is placed in the center of the cross. This card represents the prime energy manifest in your life. Pisces: An imaginative and otherworldly dreamer, selfless and empathetic. Inner duality, balancing loving tolerance and righteous anger. Kindness and compassion resulting from dedicated introspection. Mysticism and uncanny intuition.
The second card, placed above the significator, represents Air. It describes your spirit, process of thought, and the influence of reason. Three of Coins (Works): The commencement of business, commercial transactions, or employment. The constructive use of creative talents, and the expression of artistry in workmanship. Skill and labor turned to the crafting of things of value. Using the conventional as a medium for expressing the exceptional, in order to build something of great renown and glory.
The third card, placed to the right of the significator, represents Fire. It describes your motivations, creative energies, and the influence of passion. Fire: Boundless creative energy waiting to be unleashed. A burst of passion and vitality that can be harnessed to reshape the future and achieve your desires. Swift movement and decisive action.
The fourth card, placed below the significator, represents Water. It describes your emotions, meditations, and the influence of love. Three of Swords (Sorrow): Unsettling news leading to heartbreak or loneliness. Tactless or hurtful words. Acting without consideration for the emotions of others. Betrayal of trust or confidence. The revelation of a painful truth.
The fifth card, placed to the left of the significator represents Earth. It describes your physical presence, position in life, and the influence of the material world. Nine of Wands (Strength): A pause in the current struggle to ready oneself. Preparation to meet the final conclusive onslaught. Forces assembled in anticipation of trials and tribulations. The steeling of the will to stand or fall. A line drawn in the sand.
At this point the cross is complete and the triangle is formed. The sixth card, placed on the bottom left of the triangle represents one of two opposing forces. Time: The great equalizer - the mighty are brought low and the meek are elevated. The transience of lesser concerns brings about the healing of old wounds and the achievement of great wisdom. The perspective of eternity, and the revelation of profound and immutable truth.
The seventh card, placed on the bottom right of the triangle represents the force that opposes the bottom left card. These forces may be external, but they are frequently one's own inner archetypes in conflict. The Western Emperor: Worldly authority and power. Social mastery and oratory. One who is intelligent, experienced, confident and reasonable. A patriarch or primary male influence. The motive force of politics and society. The ability to fulfill plans and use mental control over the emotions.
The eighth card, the reconciler, is placed below the cross in the third vertex of the triangle. This is the force that will resolve the conflict between the bottom left and bottom right cards. By meditating on this force and bringing more of it into your life, you can bring the matter at hand to a swifter conclusion than would naturally occur. Page of Coins: The essence of earth, such as a mountain: The surprising appearance of new prosperity and opportunities for advance in the physical world. One who delights in the pleasures of the body, material things, and nature. The embrace of hard work, realistic goals, and scholarly perseverance as a means to create solid achievement. Dependability, trust, and a studious nature. May portend a new job or promotion.
The ninth and final card, placed in the center bottom of the triangle, represents the final outcome unless you change course. Ace of Coins: The seed of prosperity and material gain - perhaps as yet unseen. A new foundation from which to turn your dreams into reality. The need to focus on the practical and understand the dynamics of the natural world. May represent a gift, document, inheritance, or an unexpected opportunity for physical achievement.
Ok, so its pretty detailed and requires a few interpretations from yourself to make some sense of it - but lets face it, we've seen vaguer! Anyways, have fun with it! ;)
