  1. I echo what @Raggydollsays about traditional meanings. I think it's important not to force our preconceived notions, or to force-fit what our suspicions, are onto our readings, especially with a one-card reading. So, let me guess, the question was a one-card "is he cheating on me"? question and a 3 of Cups was drawn? Naturally, since the sitter suspects he is cheating, then all of a sudden, the 3 of Cups is "the cheating" card? Absolutely not. This is one of the most pleasant cards in the deck. It is jubilation, celebration, cooperation, etc. It is so pleasant that I would venture to say that even reversed (with blocked energy) it isn't a "cheating" card (even if there is such a thing) and arguably there isn't. Cheating, to me, is a very serious matter. It would involve a whole host of indicators (i.e., not just one card) and a lot more nasty cards than a lone "cheater" card (think 3 of Swords, 9 of Swords, 10 of Swords, Devil, Tower...) 3 of Cups? Nah....
  2. I am currently studying the Thoth deck
  3. It truly makes one wonder. And... I have seen these 30-day spreads elsewhere, and I think they're wonderful. It appears this person has lifted it and purposely peppered it with crude language. Juvenile! I have to stay clear of most Facebook groups for the same reason. Don't get me wrong, my language IRL would make most people here's hair curl (firehouse/Marine talk, etc.), but I don't see the point in putting it in writing like that. It's pointless.
  4. No, it contains a superfluous and tacky use of the f-word. I'm all for the clever use of the f-bomb, and even m***f**** here and there, but when are people going to realize that such gratuitous language doesn't make them look "cool" or original---only cheap, attention-seeking, and unintelligent?
  5. South Carolina's governor has ordered mandatory evacuations for coastal counties beginning noon tomorrow: https://www.postandcourier.com/hurricanewire/dorian-evacuations-ordered-for-sc-coast-as-powerful-storm-approaches/article_7e3bb37e-cc25-11e9-95b8-d735532df817.html
  6. I am glad. Me, too. I am not on the coast. There's no telling where this thing is going to wind up!
  7. Crude and unoriginal. I came up with one of those about ten years ago: http://www.tarotforum.net/showthread.php?t=120047
  8. I need to let everyone know that I am no longer living in Florida. And, to everyone still there, please stay safe and do what emergency personnel tells you to do, please!
  9. From what I understand, astral projection is the expansion of the crown chakra outward, and sometimes upward, from a fixed point (the body). Many of us experience this naturally in our sleep. During this process, the soul remains connected to the physical world (the body) and is only thinly separated from it. It is not a total and complete out-of-body experience. So, astral projection cannot involve travelling away from your body. I'm sure there are others out there who will disagree, but what you're speaking of is the called the secret of bilocation, a genuine of out-of-body-experience. I would consider the practices bilocation and astral projection to be completely different skills. The danger with using bilocation to move far from your body is, of course, the inability to find your way back, which would result in death. Back to the subject of astral projection, when considering astral projection in the terms of "how fast", we have to take into consideration that speed is the result of distance divided by time. These are physical terms. Astral projection cannot be defined by physics. I found this article useful: https://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/ciencia/ciencia_astralprojection.htm
  10. More on Prudence as not directly included in the 21-trumps, as it was considered one of the Intellectual virtues and separate from the Cardinal: https://publishing.cdlib.org/ucpressebooks/view?docId=ft4m3nb2n4&chunk.id=d0e4855&toc.depth=1&toc.id=d0e4620&brand=ucpress;query=prudence#26 Obviously there were no "Science, Sapiens, or Entendement" either, in tarot. Although there is a good argument on p. 127 that Prudence could be included in Justice, "In Aristotle's ethical system, Prudence has a key role, as it embodies "the power of good deliberation" in human affairs. Practical Wisdom guides activity in both individual and political affairs through reason 'with regard to things good and bad for men.' As noted earlier, this type of wisdom, one of the four cardinal virtues, had for obvious reasons long been associated with the ideal ruler. "
  11. Here's an old post from aeclectic (I finally found) : http://www.tarotforum.net/showthread.php?t=132931 It was very well received, as you can see...
