IM DEAAADDDDDD

That’s fucking impossible. They get detected over everything. You miss an enemy, you hit an enemy, you fart near an enemy, you send an enemy an email four weeks ago and he forgot about it and he put it in his spam folder, and then was like, ‘Oh, I just- I’ll not talk about that for another while.’ No, still fucking knows! He’s like, 'Your the guy who sent that email. Oh, 400 dick pics. Don’t think I didn’t- I liked them, but don’t think I didn’t put them in my spam. It’s the only place my girlfriend won’t find them.’

February 11: Salome’s Dance of Seven Veils Spread

 The origin story of this spread is extra fun: based on the Wilde play based on the Bible story of Salome who performed her dance of the seven veils in exchange for John the Baptist’s head. The questions in this spread are about getting what you want. I can’t help imagining a severed head on a silver platter.

Starting off, my desire is the 10 of Swords reversed. Interesting that it’s this card as opposed to ones that typical indicate success and happiness (I’m think the 6 of Wands, 10 of Cups, all that). No matter the position, this 10 indicates pain and hope. Upright, this is a person who is totally done. The fear and anxiety of the 9 of Swords has had its way and the mind has shut down. But this is only temporary; reversed the 10 of Swords is a few steps further in the process of regeneration. The desire is to move on from pain and start fresh.

The two pages that come next are at odds with each other. The Page of Wands is what I’m willing to do to achieve my goals, while the Page of Pentacles is my challenge. Both are about beginnings, being pages, but it’s like the materialism of Pentacles is getting in the way of the Wands’s journey. I may be seeing money-making opportunities, chances for jobs or ways to get more stuff, but this is ultimately a distraction from the creative journey I want to be making.

The normally nasty 5 of Swords hear will help me overcome the Page of Pentacle’s vices. It’s weird seeing this card in a positive position – yes all tarot cards are neutral but some are more neutral than others. Here it could mean that I may have to trick my own mind, even fight with it, to do what I know is best for me. Skipping a bit, the reversed Devil can help me in this. The Devil reversed is someone who is trying to throw off their chains. Like the 10 of Swords reversed, the bad stuff is still there but the person is making an effort to move forward.

The Empress reversed is what’s driving these desires. She came up recently: it’s a combination of home and sense of self that’s out of whack. The result, if I can get what I want, is the High Priestess which says as much. I won’t get any severed heads out of this, but I will get my intuition back.

Lan nodded to him, then looked at Moiraine. “Have you two been arguing?”

Moiraine tucked the mark away, face becoming impassive. Rand didn’t know what to make of the interaction between the two of them since Moiraine’s return. They were civil, but there was a distance between them that he had not expected.

— 

A Memory of Light, chapter 11 “Just Another Sell-sword”.

there was a distance between them

Because seeing Moiraine alive doesn’t magically sweep away Lan’s broken-bond-induced grief. Because Moiraine’s reappearance does not resolve lingering tensions regarding the choices she made before.

Because these two have over 20 years experience of being an Aes-Sedai-and-Warder team, and falling back into their old partnership is impossible without that professional relationship and without that emphatic link. And they’ve both moved on - they don’t want the partnership they once had. They need to build a new relationship, with different boundaries.

They’re old friends, they’ll figure it out. Or maybe they already have and this is what works for them. 

It’s just not what suits poor Rand, who wants a moment of things being back to normal with his mentor figures, before the end.

D: I have come a long way.
R: We have both come a long way. When I met you I was an inebriate, half bankrupt squireen. You didn’t know what a catch you were making!
D: I didn’t know I was making ANY catch
R: I didn’t know what sort of a catch I was making either. Dear heaven, that was the luckiest day of my life. ❤️💖
