Previous Entry Share Next Entry

I'm not much of a tarot kinda person, exactly. I doubt the ability of random selection of tarot cards to tell someone's future. I don't doubt that they provide a boost and conceptual handles for the intuition of someone who is trying to. I think one interesting thing about the cards is how they attempt to distill fundamentals of human existence down to a set of pictures on cards. Tarot cards are heavy with meanings and associations.

So, I think a questionare that has you answering a bunch of questions, then uses the answers to decide which tarot card you are isn't at all an unreasable thing.

And, of course, me being an XHTML Nazi, I have to clean up the bad HTML to be XHTML using CSS.

The Hermit Card

You are the Hermit card. The Hermit has chosen a solitary spiritual path. He shines light on his inner self and, by this means, gains wisdom.

The Hermit's home is the natural world and it is by being in tune with that world that he learns the laws of nature and learn how they operate within himself.

His path is a lonely one as he lives in silence and has for companionship only his own internal rhythms. But those crossing his path are touched by his light and wisdom. Though often alone, he manages nevertheless to instruct those who meet him and guides those who chose to follow him on a path towards enlightenment.

I suspect I was a tossup between 'The Hermit' and 'The Magician'. But, in many ways, that's how my life is. :-/ Sometimes I'm not so happy about that. Oftentimes I am.

I came out as the Hierophant, which rubbed me the wrong way since I learned the Hierophant's meaning as "authority", but this person describes him more as a teacher, which certainly suits.
