A Short Tarot Reading
to Myself

I was looking for some documents in my room and while digging through piles of books I found the box containing my sister's tarot pack. She bought it so many years ago and she just got tired of it. Like the many other things she was interested in before. She's a typical Aquarian.

Anyways, when I saw that it was just lying around I borrowed it from her and learned how to read them. I remember giving friends free readings like 6 or 7 years ago. I'm no expert but I was able to predict some things that will happen in their future. Sometimes months or a year after giving them a reading, they'd tell me, "Hey, what you told me came true!" And by then I wouldn't remember what I told them.

I guess I got tired of it too. I broke the habit of always consulting the cards. Que sera, sera. What ever will be, will be. But because I came across the deck again, I guess it wouldn't hurt to give myself short reading for old times sake hehe.

I asked about my shirt business and it gave positive cards. Then I asked about the digital portraiture business and the cards didn't seem to favor it. At first I found it strange because I have the flair for it. Then I realize, as I analyze the cards, skill and talent is not enough for this business. I lack space and equipment and acquiring these will surely cost me. So I guess what the cards are telling me is "not now". Anyway, it's good to know that I'm on the right track with the shirt printing business. ^_^

By the way, these cards are the Rider-Waite tarot pack. It is said to be the most popular tarot deck in use today in the English-speaking world. Pamela Colman Smith illustrated them under the instructions of Arthur Edward Waite, an expert in the occult and esoteric matters. The cards were published in December 1909 by the Rider Company.

Behind one cover card you will find this short biography of Pamela Colman Smith. I'm posting it here in honor of the artist. "She will be astonished and gladdened to know that today the deck touches the heart and emotions of millions of people."
