what tarot card are you?

i spotted this on jason's blog. thanks, jason!





You are The Empress
Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation.
The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents, beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.
The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love. Even so, the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, then sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can, in anger withhold, as Demeter did when her daughter, Persephone, was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.

That's a cool card for you. I imagine it fits. :)

I hope Madame Sosostris isn't insulted by these internet upstarts!

Apparently, I'm The Magician.

"Eleoquent and charismatic both verbally and in writing, you are clever, witty, inventive and persuasive."

Wish I'd known that sooner. I'd have gotten laid more in college.

I was the moon. But I forget now what it meant. Something about being moody basically. I think. I do remember that it was fairly accurate. Sorry, I leave for Ireland tomorrow, too excited to think about anything else.

jason, madame has been bitching for days. some things never change.

cinderelly -- the empress fit me pretty well. nurturing, but if somebody pisses me off...

stephen, that seems like a good fit.

norby, ireland! how exciting! have a wonderful time and tell us all about it when you get back!

Hmm...the High Priestess? Yeah, right! 'Cause I'm all about that secret, arcane knowledge that I may or may not want to share. Okay, I can be kinda moody...

BTW, the Persephone myth has always been one of my favorite Greek myths - I had to try a pomegranate after I read it. Sheesh. I was a dorky kid!

Julia Buckley said...

Hi, Anne! I mean Empress! Your new place looks gorgeous!

Angie, I am also the High Priestess. Will we have to start a war over the title? :)

anne frasier said...

angie, that's a cool story! not dorky at all!

julia, i think you and angie should both dress as the high priestess and mud wrestle for the title.
