Weekly Tarot Reading: April 9th – April 16th

Maiden Oracle

Judgment (Reversed) | 8 of Cups | 7 of Wands | Kuan Yin | Rhiannon | Bast

Numerological Breakdown: 2+8+7=17=8       As we can see, the number 8 is still a recurring theme since we also saw that as the main number in last week’s reading; number 8 is heavily tied to abundance, manifestation, infinity, authority, personal power, confidence, karma.

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
