Avert your eyes children!

October 4th, 2005 by cathy

I occassionally read this librarian’s blog and she had taken a test to see what tarot card she was (she got the death card). So I thought it would be aptly unappropriate to post what tarot card I was directly after posting what religion I’m closest to. I love the Internet! Maybe the tarot card test was so good it was able to tell that I just semi-recently had a baby, because I got a naked pregnant goddess card. So of course I had to post it!

The Empress Card
You are the Empress card. The Empress is the
archetype of the Mother. She creates and
nurtures life. She represents the abundance of
Mother Earth. The Empress is capable of using
nature in a productive way. She espouses art
for art’s sake. Her planet is Venus, and she
embodies love of beauty and a strong value
system. Here is also found initial sensation.
This is the first really physical experience of
the world that The Fool has entered. The
Empress has a rich understanding of the world
based on her five senses. In a reading, The
Empress represents pregnancy, actual or
metaphorical. She indicates an act of creation
and a sensual experience of beauty. The Empress
is a nurturing force that wishes to see the
product of her experiences reach the next stage
of development. Image from A Photographic Tarot

    A story that might make you feel better about Buster:

    When my husband and I were living in DC, we moved into a new apartment that allowed pets and decided we wanted a cat. So we went down to the county shelter and in one cage was this skinny black cat with a white dot on its neck. The cards on the cages listed why the owners had given the cats up, and in this cat’s case it said “Not enough time for him.”

    Sure, that’s sad — but wait, let me finish the story. We chose him. Yes, he was very demanding of our attention. But as it happened, we were just as happy with him as he was with us. We took tons of pictures of him, we talked about his antics, we had the time to lavish him with affection. Eventually we even got him a girlfriend-cat.

    He died of lymphoma when he was ten, and one of the consolations we had was that he’d had seven happy years with us. That wouldn’t have been possible — and I’m sure his life would have been lonely and miserable — if his previous owners hadn’t understood he needed more than they could give.

    I hope Buster gets a good match soon. 🙂
