    Well he certainly appears to have been Balzacian in appetite, to say the least. Curiously, the French version of Wikipedia doesn't specify tuberculosis, only that he died from the after-effects of his stint as a medical doctor on the eastern front. All the references I've seen are very circular, but I presume the answer is in Papus' biography by his son, which I haven't seen, and I can't say I've been curious enough to try and track it down.

    We should not underestimate the stress involved in maintaining the levels of hubris required of a 19/20th century occultist. Exhausting. Then again, Wikipedia says it was TB during WW1. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gérard_Encausse#Death

    Exhaustion sounds like stroke to me, possibly bilateral. Tuberculosis was called consumption back then.

    Hello from Portugal!

    Same here, I just cannot connect with it, look like it belongs to a universe different than mine. I tried, but no.

    Gotcha Matcha? Anyone else a regular matcha drinker?

    So disciplined and amazing to watch plus participate in. It is indeed an art form and is absolutely exquisite in every way possible. I think many things in Japan are done like an art form, even in places like department stores, for instance how they package items such as cakes and sweets. Beautifully packaged and even ribboned to add style or a sophisticated touch - nothing like it! But there is indeed something special about the Japanese tea ceremony. DND

    Are you feeling lonely because of Covid-19 ?

    Hi @gregory, what an interesting read. Funny how everybody raves about how well New Zealand did, and here is the UK, another island, able to see how things can be worked successfully, but nobody gives a ****! The whole Portugal thing is utterly mad anyway: England said it is safe to go for holidays to Portugal, people went nuts and booked their trips without even knowing if Portugal allows British tourists in.... I love it! So true! But you know what will happen: nothing!

    And I see Canada now has a vaccine glut anyway - at least there's no shortage. The stay at home order is a good thing - if only the stupid cottagers had had some sense. Here we have the India variant and a GREAT quote from a doctor: As for our precautions... words fail me. Look at Heathrow airport: the other day, and then read the article that goes with it. England is RUBBISH. https://t.co/mmzBLwgpYX?amp=1

    After careful deliberation, I have decided to go ahead and lock this thread. I have on two occasions appealed to everyone that they should take a deep breath, step back and allow this discussion to cool down. Clearly it didn't work. Instead we ended up with a situation where people have felt misunderstood, attacked and where the thread starter have been anxious for several days. That is why I am locking the thread. I don't want people to have to keep watching this thread with apprehension or with irritation. I am fully aware that there have been many attempts at staying on topic and that this

    Hello from Portugal!

    Some interesting decks you mention there. Thoth is one deck I have never really got along with despite how truly beautiful it is. I picked one up years ago and put it away almost immediately - just didn't connect with it. Now the RW type styles I do seem to resonate better with and I find most decks do have something to say. Not all, but definitely most. That goes for Oracles and what have you as well. I think having options is absolutely ideal! Hope you get back into it full swing. Anyways, good to know about the chicken

    I don't think it is a euphemism, or a medical assessment, either, just what was reported at the time.

    Thank you! It's interesting that Beuchet says Papus died of exhaustion. Was that a euphemism for tuberculosis?

    This never got any replies? Wow. And yes. Dickens wrote about people just like this. Child pickpockets and prostitutes. Here's my favorite movie version. No singing and dancing, just the story, please. Human nature was the same then as it is now. They just didn't talk about it. If a woman had insomnia, irritability, or melancholy, she might be diagnosed with Female Hysteria. The cure? A doctor with a vibrator. I'm serious, google it. He didn't simply prescribe a vibrator. He...well, you know. People in those days were pervy. Oh well, I guess it was one

    Are you feeling lonely because of Covid-19 ?

    Here in Canada they are discontinuing the AstraZeneca as a first shot because of too many people getting the blood clots - 1 in 60 000 - still not many. but the cases are adding up..... On the other hand our AZ doses are almost gone- for now and the pandemic is still raging. Ontario's "Stay at home + hard lock down order" has been extended for another 2 weeks......

    Card Selection vs Interpretation

    I'm not sure I fully understand the question but I'm personally in the habit of shuffling the cards four times, twice by cutting the deck roughly in half and shuffling both halves together, then twice where I cut the deck in half again but flip half of the deck around 180 degrees (to allow for reversals). Once I do that, I cut the deck into thirds, then what I do next depends on whether I'm doing a three card reading or not. If I'm working with a spread involving a quantity of cards other than three, I then pick one of the three piles. I'll often hover my hand over them before picking one t

    For the record, so that no one mistakenly feels I was accusing them of anything.. I only meant that telling me my whole basis for this conversation was that I must think my tarot cards are wrong when I don't like them was mean. I quoted something specific, and that was what I was responding to. I worked really hard to try and push through one person derailing the thread and keep the conversation going in a better direction, but I guess I have been declared a failure at that task. I'm quite sick of defending myself against the words being put in my mouth and I've been in a constant
