I finally embarked on my project to create a "tarot journal" as you all have recommended. I am randomly drawing a card from my deck to ask a question, and writing up what I find about it. As I mentioned, the deck I've had for about 30 years is my Aquarian Deck. So I'm very fond of it.

Certainly my thoughts on the cards are just my own, and my thought is to add to this journal as I go. So these are just my initial thoughts as I look at each card. I'm only looking up the "official" version of the card after I figure out my own thoughts. So part of this is I'm curious how closely my own thoughts on my cards come to the official "sanctioned" view of what a card is "supposed" to mean.

I'm quite open to hear what other people think of these cards! And certainly if anyone wants to use my PDFs they are more than welcome to.

Here's my first one - the seven of pentacles. A powerful one to me, about focus and attention. It's interesting that it's the first one I drew!

Interestingly, the second card I drew, on the next day, on a different question, was the eight of pentacles! smile

The third one was the two of cups. So far my readings seem fairly similar to the "accepted readings" although in this one I am seeing a different inflection on it. Another interesting point, all three cards were spot on with the issues I was asking about.

OK one final one for tonight. Again I am so impressed with how closely each card seems to match with the question I was asking. In this case I was looking into my online class forums and how I would do in those forums against the other voices there. This was the seven of rods.

Nice cards smile I'd only seen the deck in passing, so it's interesting to see it in use. They do look a bit like the Psycards, obvious symbolism with subtle undertones. It's particularly good that the explanatory text brings this out in showing how to look at them.

Might not be long before you can do the Solitair thing from "Live and Let Die"! wink

Here's one from this morning, the Page of Pentacles. I was asking about my overall focus.

Dear Ian -

I really enjoy this deck a lot. I've looked at other decks over the years and none ever appeal to me as much as this one does. I was just yesterday looking at one of those web pages that has a "multi deck comparison" with images, at the Queen of Swords. Out of all the various versions they had, it was still the Aquarian deck that I liked the best.

I want to caveat on these descriptions that they are just my own. I'm sure other people have vastly different interpretations of these cards, and that is OK.

LOL ok this is too funny. I thoroughly shuffled the cards up, and then went to draw a card to look at the lives of my friends who are getting married today. I drew the Ten of Cups again! Twice in a row! What a lovely card for them smile
