Heartbreak Cards: Night Of The Living Tarot 3

"mars in virgo 2011"


Ever have those days, weeks, months, years when you keep on seeing the Three of Swords? Imagine my shock when my old friend from highschool told me she had it tattooed.

There was a time, a couple years ago, when I was in an unhappy, very Venus in the 12th House relationship, that I saw this card a lot. Well, I think that’s also what happens when you keep returning to the Tarot with those puppy dog questions: Will he? Will we? Why can’t I? HELP ME TAROT HELP ME UNDERSTAND MY FAILINGS!


But back to the Three of Swords. Have I seen it lately? Yeah. And also seen the 10 of Swords and the 2 of Swords and the King of Swords. But also Strength, a card I love. For-Tee-Tude.  I don’t write down the cards I pull for myself. I just make a mental note: uh-oh that card again. And I realize when it’s been a while since I’ve seen it.

Winter has truly arrived in the Big City. The weather today was, well, I wasn’t prepared. I don’t think anyone was. It was like a hurricane and a blizzard combined. No way to get warm, no way to stay warm, except for inside. This evening I made a run to the Chinese take-out place on the corner for some soup to test out another pair of boots which I was hoping were waterproof or almost waterproof after having every damn shoe I own FAIL me.  Good news though: they were perfect.

I love the ritual of pulling cards, for myself, for others, even though I really prefer someone else to pull and read for me. Sometimes I can’t help it. And I always hope for the best: Please God may no scary cards appear because surely that would fortell my DOOOOOOM.

“I don’t want to wait until tomorrow…” that’s a refrain in a song I’m listening to right now. I know how he feels, that urgency. Not everybody feels it. Some are content to take their time, content to be stubborn and wait. And that’s what my Tarot was saying too. A few days ago I got The Hanged Man, but it wasn’t my card.

I feel like I was born a teenager and will die a teenager, no matter how old I get: bad skin, rock and roll, big dreams, confusion, longing. Love is something that sneaks up on you, don’t you think? More than any lightening bolt.

Let’s a pull a Tarot card for this blog post, shall we? Not even gonna shuffle, just pull it from the middle of the deck.

Tell me Tarot, tell me true, what do I need to know right now? 

Heh. Heh heh. Heh heh heh.

The Knight of Cups :)

And to all… a Good (K)night
