  2. You got 8 out of 10 right! You are an absolute genius How'd you even do it? Good work! To be fair, some of the questions are oldies but goodies!

  4. I love this song and this video. Hey, I can post random videos here if I want to. My lair, my rules.
  5. Hello and welcome Gayle! I'm glad you found us too.
  6. Should I join the convent or become a stripper? 6 of Wands and The Devil
  7. DAY 15 - WAXING GIBBOUS THEME: Self love and personal boundaries DECK USED: Dark Fairytale Tarot 1, My experiences and beliefs around self love and self worth - Queen of Swords This is right on the mark. I am extremely self-critical, and find it hard (if not impossible) to love myself unless I'm doing and getting everything right. Even when I do achieve a foal, I pick apart everything I did leading up it, constantly finding fault with every decision or move I made. And my self worth: non-existent. I'm far to harsh with myself, and never cut myself any slack, which leaves me feeling unworthy. I think part of the problem is that I view myself through an analytical "just the facts, please" lens, which doesn't allow any room for self-compassion. If I make a mistake, there's no place for forgiveness or understanding - I'm just a failure. If I make the wrong decision, I don't say to myself "okay, I can learn from this and do better next time", I say "you are a complete moron and shouldn't even be let out of the house". I know this is wrong thinking, but it's become an ingrained pattern that seems impossible to break. 2. Where I would benefit from clarifying or strengthening my personal boundaries - 9 of Wands Hmm. The 9 of Wands is all about strengthening personal boundaries in the first place, so is this card saying that if I strengthen my boundaries, the only benefit I'll receive is stronger boundaries? Actually, I think that is the answer. The wall that I've already built around myself is so tall and wide that you'd need a tank to break through it. Anything more would just be pointless overkill - and it would probably lead to complete paranoia, delusion, and total isolation (oh look - there's my old friend The Hermit again. Hi Hermie). Not so beneficial, unless I want to go completely insane. Not exactly the most promising reading so far, is it? 3. Something loving that I can do to honor and nourish myself on a deep level - 2 of Cups This card made absolutely no sense at first. How could a card that by definition involves another person be something that I could do for myself? When I studied the card, however, I figured it out. It shows a male and a female angel standing together - they're so close, they're almost one being. Only one wing from each is showing - her's is light, his is dark, and together they make the shape of a heart. I think this card is telling me that to honor and nurture myself I need to love and embrace all of my dichotomies. My masculine side and my feminine side, my dark side and my light side, the part of me that gets it right and the part of me that misses the mark. Only then can I even begin to start loving myself. By the way, before I figured this card out, I pulled a clarity card to help me out. It was The Devil. So maybe what the 2 of Cups means is that I should devote myself to Satan (I know what you're thinking - "haven't you already done that?"). Well, I am looking for my true spiritual path....

  9. Hey all. Here is my Lunar Flower Moon reading using the Dark Fairytale Tarot 1. My deepest desires - 5 of Cups. Apparently, my deepest desire is either to be completely miserable, or to be a vampire (those overturned cups were full of blood). While being a vampire would be totally cool, what I think this card is saying is that I desire to overcome my sorrows, and move on from my regrets. The vampire woman on the card looks almost defiant - she's had enough of suffering, and so have I. 2. What disconnects me from them? - 9 of Pentacles I can never fulfill my desire of moving on from my sorrows and regrets because I never really deal with them - I just stuff them down and retreat into my magic garden of denial and avoidance. Like the woman on the card, I lie down in my inner garden and pretend that everything is fine. But from the look on her face, obviously everything is not fine - and it isn't with me either. 3. What is my feminine essence? - The World So despite all my issues, my feminine essence is someone confident and competent, who can make her dreams come true and celebrate her accomplishments. Deep inside, I have the ability to truly engage in life, and to enjoy just being alive. The woman on the card has been crying (I can tell because her mascara is running), but she can still dance despite the pain. This isn't denial, it's the result of acceptance and forgiveness. 4. How can she fully bloom? - 6 of Swords I can help my feminine essence fully bloom by letting go of my pain, sorrow, and negative thinking, and moving on (hmm...that was my deepest desire, wasn't it). Like the woman on the card, I need to look past the skulls in the water (the remnants of things past that continue to haunt me) and focus on the good things that lie ahead. 5. What is my masculine essence? - Queen of Swords My masculine essence is someone who can go through pain and suffering and come out stronger and more determined than ever before. He can do so because he sees the truth in every situation, and be perfectly honest with himself about the role he played in causing them. Like the Queen on the card, he's learned from his experiences, and is fully prepared to defend himself against any future woes. 6. How can he fully bloom? - Queen of Cups What's with the two Queens? Do I really not have any masculine energy? (well, I'm a Pisces, what do you want?). Anyway, I can help my masculine essence fully bloom by tempering the cold, intellectual, rational part of myself with the sensual, emotional, intuitive side of myself. This makes me think of Mr. Spock. His devotion to logic makes him a superlative officer, but his lack of emotions hinders him greatly in personal relationships. If I can unite my logical side with my emotional side, then my masculine essence will live long and prosper. 7. sacred union to bring deepest desires to fruition - King of Swords The King of Swords can gain understanding of any person or situation by viewing them through a clear, unprejudiced lens. So he would have my feminine and masculine sides gaze into each other's souls to experience their counterpart's truth. Let The World sit on the Queen of Sword's throne, to see things from her eagle-eyed perspective. And let the Queen of Swords dance with The World, to see how it feels to just let loose and enjoy. Once my masculine and feminine sides have gotten to know each other, they can work together to help me focus not on the pain of my past, but all of the good things that await me in the present and the future. Then my deepest desire will be fulfilled.
