  1. I often take a picture of a card and use it as the lock-screen on my phone. Every time I pick up my phone, it's there. Every now and then I want to carry a card with me but I, too, worry about damage and loss. At home I sometimes prop a card (or several of the same card from different decks) on my desk so they are watching my progress. I have a little shelf above my workspace where they fit nicely and I don't have to worry about them falling over or being messed with. I also visualize because when I forget all the above, my mind is always with me. I just picture the card and the details I remember. If I don't get everything it must not be important at that time because our subconscious has a way of latching onto what we need to see.
  2. It's really hard for me to choose a favorite because my favorite cards in different decks are all different. What speaks to me in the art of one deck might be missing in another. That being said the card I am usually most excited to see in a reading is the Tower. It feels like the color orange to me. When I see orange I get happy, 'OOOH Orange!" It always excites me. Same with the Tower. "OOH something's changing!" Excitement. I get that I'm probably not supposed to be excited by that card but I like change and I'm surrounded by people who don't so I don't really see being shaken out of complacency as a bad thing.
  3. Okay, some life happened (as it always does) and I got distracted from finishing the above post on the same day. Since I was looking up the info about the Sun, I simply took my notes with me and worked on them during some "waiting" time so we are going to start with looking at the Sun. My first thought was that both "good" and "bad" aspects of the card presented themselves. I found it interesting that it showed up two days in a row as both a transformation and a mask. Could it be a fake it 'till you make it mentality or pretense. Always saying "fine" when we are anything but. I'm also wondering about finding the silver lining in a cloudy day. I'm pretty good at looking for the bright side of any situation. At the time the card was drawn in each situation my thoughts were: I like that so much better. I sort of just glossed over this because the other visits from this card, on consecutive days seemed to hijack my attention. Interesting. Well, it looks like I assigned the card to the incorrect question in the previous post. While the answer above is valid I'd like add that being open comes to mind now because of the RWS image which is absent from the GOT card. When I hear the Sun, I see the RWS, but looking at the actual card, "basking in the light" is the way to go. Yeah, I still get the same feeling here. I'm also feeling a little like I was going a bit on the memory of the RWS card to get my "intuitive" meaning here. Food for thought. Stay tuned for more at some random, undetermined date in the future.
  4. It's taken me a while to come back to this but I am serious at delving more deeply into it While doing readings every 30 days, there just wasn't time to sit too long with any one thing. There were 90 cards drawn total. Over one-fourth were Majors. I was looking at some important things here. The Majors that appeared (in order of frequency were: The Fool 3 The Hierophant 3 The Sun 3 The Hermit 2 Justice 2 Death 2 The Moon 2 Magician 1 High Priestess 1 The Empress 1 Strength 1 The Hanged Man 1 Temperance 1 The Devil 1 The Star 1 The World 1 Completely absent were: The Emperor The Lovers The Chariot The Wheel of Fortune The Tower Judgement I'll be starting off my revisit of these spreads with the Majors I drew most, The Fool, Hierophant, and Sun. I'll re-examine the questions each answered as well look at possible significance in their re-appearances. I'll be ignoring reversals since I will be looking at all the aspects of the card I think of. ! The Fool: First Appearance: Day 2 Theme: Goals and Choices Question: The Situation and the Path I am headed on. (interesting note: The Hierophant showed up with the fool on this day) Second Appearance: Day 25 Theme: Reverence and Bliss Question: A practical step that will help me further my spiritual practice. (Or strive towards my metaphysical goals.) Third Appearance: Day 30 Theme: Rest and Replenishment Question: A stress or pressure to put on the back burner. The Hierophant: First Appearance: Day 2 Theme: Goals and Choices Question: Advice when moving forward. Second Appearance: Day 11 Theme: Beauty and Pleasure Question: The beauty that can be found in the present moment Third Appearance: Day 17 Theme: Sensuality and Physical Pleasure Question: Ways in which I can generate even more physical pleasure in my life. The Sun: First Appearance: Day 16 Theme: Magic, Potential and Power Question: What kind of magic am I called to perform or experience right now? Second Appearance: Day 20 Theme: Dreams and Possibilities (with below, "fake it 'till you make it"?) Question: What transformation am I ready and longing for? Third Appearance: Day 21 (Two days in a row and the themes make me say hrmmmm.) Theme: Blocks and Facades Questions: A mask I sometimes hide behind
  5. Ooooh, this looks intriguing. I will have to try it out soon.
  6. I have a little different take, I think. What I see in a picture is there whether it's online or in front of me. It's like looking at the Mona Lisa in a museum versus in a picture online. It's the same picture. You might feel more in the presence of the original but the picture is the picture. I have a few apps from Fool's Dog and I have the Galaxy app but I use them like I use my "real" decks. Sometimes, I take all the "daily" cards and put them together in a kind of mixed deck reading. I look at the picture and get what I can, then maybe, I'll look at the text just to see if anything else comes up. It works as well as physical decks for me with the added bonus, that I can use expensive or OOP decks I could never afford in real life. I have the google rewards app and every time I get $4.00 on it I'm back at Fool's Dog picking a new deck. I feel with everything that you get what you believe you will get. Only you can decide what works for you and how. Your instincts are always right for you.
  7. After thinking about this Five of Cups association, I can really see the Mars aspect. The figure is all fired up in his disappointment. I would say that it was he who kicked over the cups in a fit of rage. We often do similar things and then get depressed or angry with ourselves (it's all my fault, I deserve this!). The shadow side is just naturally more apparent in this card. That same forceful energy that kicked over the cups in the first place, however, is going to fuel the power we need to right them and make corrections. This card kind of comes at it's positive message through the back door. The figure may be in a place he's not happy with but he is already making the necessary adjustments to move past his disappointments. The picture looks sad at first glance but it's really the first step from despair to triumph. That moment where the spark to keep fighting is born.

Almost 1/3 were Majors, Cups were almost 1/3 and there were almost twice as many nines as any other number. Evey single King came up too. Out of twelve swords total, the Nine turned up five times. I have no idea what any of this means ultimately but it is food for thought.
  9. Well, as I was getting ready to post the numbers and types of cards and repeat cards, I realized I was missing three. Then I remembered a spreadsheet I found a while back that had been made a research librarian. It was made to record daily draws but I was working to to modify it for three card draws as well, but got stuck on a certain formula. I decided I would just enter my cards as dailies in order to get a quick and easy total and test what I have so far. Then I realized I was filling in my template instead of making a copy! I duplicated that sheet immediately and named the new copy for this experiment. I'm planning to finish inserting the data this evening but if you would like to see the Google spreadsheet, it is here, but I will be posting the numbers here as well when I finish.
  10. I thought I had been keeping track of the cards drawn but I only have 83 of 90 recorded so I need to go through my notes and figure out which cards I forgot. I did manage to keep up with draws over a long vacation even if I didn't keep up with posting them so I have that to be proud of. I'm a little sorry it's over. I really found myself looking forward to doing this every morning. That time now seems to be missing something. Tomorrow morning I will see about getting my numbers up.
  11. DAY 30 – WANING/DARK MOON Theme: Rest & Replenishing 1. Why I need to make sleep and rest a priority right now 2. What will be able to manifest when I am replenished 3. Something I have felt pressured or stressed by that I would benefit from putting on the back-burner right now 1. The Hermit This is not surprise to me. I almost always prefer to b alone. I need time to reflect on my actions and consider where/what I did/handled well and where I need improvement. This is especially true when I have been around high drama people. 2. Four of Cups When I am well-rested I am able to deal with others in a better way. I can sit and listen to others talk through there issues better when I take the time I need for myself. Otherwise, I am just waiting for the exchange to be over. How long before I can politely withdraw? 3. The Fool I am stressed by other people's crap. I am not here to save the world or anyone it from themselves. YOu want to walk up to a dragon don't cry to me if it eats your hand. Some people can only learn the hard way. It might hurt to watch them struggle, but do I really want the drama that comes with "saving" them repeatedly? I'm beginning to really see the wisdom of the ancient tradition of becoming responsible for someone once you save their life. When I decided to take on the drama of another I should consider whether the person is really wanting help or if they just want a place to keep dumping the drama caused in their lives by repeatedly making poor decisions.
  12. DAY 29 – WANING/DARK MOON Theme: Cleansing & Clearing 1. Steps to cleanse and rejuvenate myself so that I honor my sacred physical temple 2. What I need to clear out from my mental space (attitudes, thought patterns, stress..) 3. How to transform or cleanse my home so that it nourishes me (even further) 1. Nine of Spears I need to protect my boundaries and personal space. I need a lot of alone time to be at my best. I am not the designated driver nor babysitter of anyone else's life. If someone chooses to disrespect my boundaries I am the only one who can put a stop to it, but I have to actually do it. 2. Seven of Coins I tend to give people too many chances. It may look like I have the patience of a saint when dealing with over dramatic people but underneath it drives me crazy. I just disappear into my head and tune it out. Mentally I'm deciding just how long it will be before they see me again. I give people plenty of chances to mature but at some point you have to prune away the poor fruit that does nothing but steal nutrients from the healthy plant. 3. Queen of Cups I need to nurture and protect my solitude and peace. quiet contemplation is important to me. I need a lot of alone time to keep my zen going.
  13. DAY 28 – WANING/DARK MOON Theme: Shedding & Banishing 1. What is no longing serving me well 2. The best approach to gently and effectively release and banish this from my life 3. Something wonderful and nourishing to evoke in its place 1. Eight of Coins Repetitive schedules. I have a tendency to become too regimented. My schedule is not exactly based on time but more of first I do this, then this no matter how long each thing takes. I am free to work in any order I choose. Every day does not need to be the same. I don't need to force myself into anyone else's mold. 2. Knight of Cups Rx I need to remember to love. Love myself through the changes I need to make and to love others as they react to those changes. I need to be loving all around for love's sake. 3. Two of Cups Rx The release of societal expectations that don't fit who I am. Most people I know talk about the tings they "have" to do as those these things are forced onto them. The idea that they are free to make their own choices and for the most part have chosen to make their lives whatever they are to them seems to very upsetting to them. None of us have to live up to the expectations of others. Society is a choice. We need to stop allowing They to choose it for us. We can free ourselves from the traditions and roles that no longer fit or serve us.
  14. DAY 27 – WANING CRESCENT Theme: Higher purpose & Divine nature 1. Something I need to know about my higher purpose 2. What makes me truly unique and invaluable to the rest of creation 3. A message from the higher unconscious (or spirit guides) 1. King of Swords My mind is my power. I have the ability to cut through the BS and say things as they really are. I am not easily deceived. On the other hand, I must also be wary of turning cruel. Because I see things clearly, I can easily push buttons and devolve into an "Oh well, truth hurts.", type of mindset that I consider using my power unfairly. I can end conflicts or escalate them. I'm not quite sure if this is a shadow deck for me or it's just warning me my shadow is prominent. Maybe it's just what I need to know now but I keep drawing cards that seem to relate me to the darker figures of this world. Could I be a Ramsey? A Night King? A caged wolf? Am I dangerous? Then Fahrenheit 451 comes to mind. Particularly the quote, "A book is a loaded gun in the house next door. Burn it. Take the shot from the weapon." My mind is a weapon and has a lot of ammo. I need to be careful where I aim it. 2. Page of Cups The ability to go inside myself and process all the information I accumulate and the find the patterns and processes that allow me to put my knowledge to practical use is my gift. I am often sitting on the sidelines (by choice) absorbing everything. When I am able to return to my metaphorical Godswood, I spend long hours inside myself just processing and planning. Looking for all the potential outcomes. Like Bran, while I know I am loved, I am also seen as different, weird, and a little scary at times. 3. Ten of Cups All is well. Events unfold as they should. People may panic and feel the end is nigh but they have done so since the beginning of time. Let it happen. Address what is before you and take joy in the knowledge that everything is going as it should. We are all going to be okay.
