I was browsing card decks online and found Corina Dross’s Instagram account which reminded me of how much I love her Portable Fortitude playing cards. Then I thought how light and easy to carry they are and that I might need some fortitude for our trip and move, and got to thinking about taking these in my purse with me for the two or three months I will be without a home.
Then I remembered my mini version of the Universal Tarot and wondered about taking those too, and then I thought I’d see how they work together in a trial run. I won’t have access to a scanner but I do have my camera and laptop, so maybe I will be able to post some cards while I’m in limbo after all?
Oh, and I’ll take my Power Tarot book too, for some back-up thoughts. I generally wing it with cards but after today’s draw and insights I think I might like to take this book too.
3 OF CLUBS – protection from narcissism
IX – THE HERMIT
I liked the tie-in referenced in Power Tarot that The Hermit is connected to Saturn and relates to the astrological Saturn Return that occurs about every 28 years. We have lived here for 28.5 years and it’s time to get serious and complete this cycle. Do you believe that synchronicity!
I get scared some days and wish I hadn’t started the process of moving, but then I pull a card like this and know it is written already, it has to be done. The Hermit is travelling, he has his lamp but is perhaps feeling tentative, fearing that he won’t be able to see where he’s going, but on he walks.
The 3 of Clubs reminds me of the past and several people I knew who were revealed to be uncaring narcissists. I am much more aware of such things now, and my period of withdrawal from people to protect myself, also highlighted by The Hermit, is coming to an end.
Twenty-eight years. Lalalala.
