Back in December, 2015, I was in a bookstore, one of the major book retailers in the UK, and I was just looking around for nothing in particular and I had some books that I was going to purchase and I was just doing a brief last look at some odds and ends before going to the checkout to purchase the books I had and I was at a rotary of things like games and stuff and I come across a deck of tarot cards.
I was never the one for divination and I'm not much of a believer in them or anything like that but the general idea interests me for some reason, so I thought I'd pick up a deck while there, mostly just for fun. I had used them once or twice on the first couple of days of getting them and gave it no real thought.
Then, this afternoon, I picked them up again, just for a bit of fun I guess. I thought perhaps I could channel some of my own 'energy' or 'essence' or whatever into them as I clasped them in both hands so as they be 'in tune' with me as I used them for information.
The instructions were to draw 4 cards, A; B; C and D. A being what's at hand, B being past influences, C being 'ponder this' and D being what to do.
Anyway, for A I drew XV: The Devil; for B I drew IV of Swords; for C I drew III of Pentacles and for D I drew XVII the Star.
I consulted the book for information on the cards and what they represent/mean and it seemed to make a far amount of sense of what was at hand, or what I had asked in my mind before shuffling and dealing out the cards but I don't want to read too much into it as I understand and know that these things require interpretation and I know that there is probably just as many possible interpretations as there are people.
But then again, I don't wish to seem close minded and I like to be open minded to possibilities that there might be and I guess that there are people who might be more au fait about such things who might be able to actually shed light on such things.
I do not wish to disclose what was at hand or what I had inquired mentally before dealing out the cards as I feel it's a bit of a personal matter, not that it's anything embarrassing or anything against anyone, it's just that I'd rather keep it personal.
