    I view “traditional meanings” as building blocks of a language, but then I noticed that language evolves as you integrate tarot into your experiences. The cards seem to take on special meanings and nuances that are perceivable only to you – kind of like having an inside joke between you and THEMS ( The Heavenly Eternal Messanging System).

    I find that rarely there’s a “wrong way” to read a card. What speaks to you on an intimate level may not to someone else, but it doesn’t mean it’s wrong. It maybe an inside joke you’re not getting.

    And yes, I find my cards very tongue in cheek sometimes, and what’s more amazing – the Source knows when I’m ready to parttake in lighthearted things, and when I’m needing a straightforward or gentler approach.
