Step On His Head
Daily Draw September 19th, 2012
I received the wonderful Tarot of the Absurd by Jessica Shanahan in the mail yesterday, which I had arranged a trade for with another tarot friend since I don’t have the cash right now. I have to go to the dentist this morning and am finding it hard to settle, but I wanted to draw a card from this deck.
17 – THE STAR
How can anyone resist this deck?
The bull must refer to the constellation, so who are the others? Maybe the Big Dog and the Herdsman? Or perhaps it’s Orion? The Archer is supposed to have a long skirt, so that might be him, but his ears seem to be stoppered up. I like the turnabout here as the usual woman looks at the star figures with her binoculars.
The thing about constellations is that someone’s imagination makes them what they are. It is difficult to see Orion with his big and little dog, scorpion, and hare up in those little dots, yet someone in time got the bright idea to connect them into shapes and apply the mythology to them.
In the same way, we can create patterns in our own lives. So let your hair down and create! I get the feeling that chap’s mouth opens when you step on his head…let me verify this empirical evidence….yes this is so, he has to let the pressure out when you step on his head because his ears are stoppered up.
Sing and shout to the stars when you feel pressured, bay at the moon. Skip about in the sky peering at new things and let the light of Sirius be absorbed by your mind. Remember that before a human applied thought to the stars they were random specks of light in the night.
We can’t be having that sort of random nonsense. Build the story, you are the creator. And today is the day to do it!
After the dentist of course, in 1.5 hours of star time.
