This should drive the fundies nuts!

If I maintain my usual stream of blaming others, I'd say PJ made me do it. But that's not true, nor has it been true of other silliness. In each case I have chosen and I need to come clean here before I shift into borderline personality disorder in which it is always someone else's fault.

Here we go with the Tarot, no less.



You are The Sun


Happiness, Content, Joy.


The meanings for the Sun are fairly simple and consistent.


Young, healthy, new, fresh. The brain is working, things that were muddled come clear, everything falls into place, and everything seems to go your way.


The Sun is ruled by the Sun, of course. This is the light that comes after the long dark night, Apollo to the Moon's Diana. A positive card, it promises you your day in the sun. Glory, gain, triumph, pleasure, truth, success. As the moon symbolized inspiration from the unconscious, from dreams, this card symbolizes discoveries made fully consciousness and wide awake. You have an understanding and enjoyment of science and math, beautifully constructed music, carefully reasoned philosophy. It is a card of intellect, clarity of mind, and feelings of youthful energy.


What Tarot Card are You?
Take the Test to Find Out.



This is a nice balance with PJ's being the Moon. I have become especially drawn to the moon after my first stint working in ABQ. The sky seems so much more vast and the moon and stars so much closer than in California.

Though in looking at the Tarot many years ago, I rather thought I was the King of Cups (and even wrote a sonnet about it). I believe it is the card of theologians.


Well, this should send the spiritually nervous scuttling back to their burrows muttering "occult" and other scary words. There are things in this world that I fear, and some of them are spiritual, but Tarot cards are not among them. Neither do I turn to cards or horoscopes or fortune tellers to unfold the future for me. As PJ puts it: "Don't really buy into it, but it's fun."

Now, where is all that youthful energy?

Like PJ and Jane R, I too am the Moon!

And having lived in Cali and spent so much time in ABQ, I agree about the sky and the moon.

When I painted my bedroom in the Nyack house, someone asked me why I chose the dark blue that I did and my reasoning was "the early night sky over New Mexico"!!

Odd, I'm the universe.

Completion? Ha!

Liminal? LIMINAL!!? THERE'S NOTHING "LIMINAL" ABOUT IT, SIR!

Of course, I wouldna have had to reveal that, if I had been quick-witted to think of yer title, but I so rarely think of what Fundamentalists "think".

Paul said...

Nope,nothing borderline about you, johnieb. You, like most of my chums, are a full-fledged nutter. And aren't we more fun to be around?

DRAT

no matter how I twiddle and tweak ... it comes out "THE TOWER" !!!

What did I do to deserve this ... ?

Paul said...

Ay, Ala de Cuervo, no te enojes.
Think of the imagery of God as a refuge, a strong tower to keep us safe.

Redeem the imagery that it may be finished in beauty.

walk in beauty ...
walk in beauty ...

Well, I think Tarot and all Occult stuff is simply so much stupid s**t. But, let me quote that great Rock 'n' Roll Poet, Chris Bell:
Every night I tell myself,
"I am the cosmos,
I am the wind"
But that don't get you back again
Just when I was starting to feel okay
You're on the phone
I never wanna be alone
Never wanna be alone
I hate to have to take you home
Wanted too much to say no, no,
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Never wanna be alone
I hate to have to take you home
Want you too much to say no, no
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
My feelings always have been
Something I couldn't hide
I can confide
Don't know what's going on inside
So every night I tell myself
"I am the cosmos,
I am the wind"
But that don't get you back again
I'd really like to see you again
I really wanna see you again
I'd really like to see you again
I really wanna see you again
I'd really like to see you again
I really wanna see you again
I never wanna see you again
Really wanna see you again

Well, it said that I am the Sun too but I don't think the description fits me. I'm going to keep taking the quiz until I get an answer I like better. You can do that, right?

Way to freak out the evangeliborgs, Paul!
