my stuff: words and ideas

Major Arcana Tarot Asks

The Fool: how long have you been reading? 

The Magician: how did you begin?

The High Priestess: if you have family in your life, do they know you read the tarot? have you ever given a reading for a family member?

The Empress: head, heart, or body?

The Emperor: earth, water, fire, or air?

The Hierophant: do you write down your readings or interpretations of them? do you take pictures? if you write them down, how and in what format?

The Lovers: list 22 random things that impact your life, one for each card in the Major Arcana. (physical objects. concepts and whatnot don’t count.)

The Chariot: are you on a journey of some kind right now? if so, what step do you think you are at? (you may do a single one-card draw for help if needed.)

Justice: is how you read tarot now different than it was when you began, or do you use the same methods? if so, describe.

The Hermit: are you better at doing readings for the future or readings of introspection for the past/present?

The Wheel of Fortune: if you know them, what are your birth cards? if you don’t know them, look them up.

Strength: do you have any religious beliefs? if so, what are they? (if you feel comfortable talking about them here.)

The Hanged Man: if you can label it: do you lean towards introversion or extroversion? in which conditions does it show the most?

Death: pull 1 card and name a lesson you believe it offers.

Temperance: in what area of your life do you need balance?

The Devil: has the Tarot ever helped you in making any major decisions? if you read for others, have your readings ever helped somebody else?

The Star: pull 1 card and make a playlist based on it.

The Moon: pull one card and name the first fear of yours that you think of.

The Sun: pull 1 card and name a talent of yours that comes to mind with that card.

Judgement: pull 1 card. describe the first person who comes to mind when you see or think of that particular card.

The World: tell us a Minor Arcana card that represents someone you love.

something paradise

cs au. ‘there’s something about breaking an engagement and leaving the man you thought you were going to spend the rest of your life with and finding yourself roommate-ing with the man who’s loved you through years and boyfriends and breakups and uncertainties that makes a person a little weepy, a little off balance, a little unsure.’ 

(i’ve been working on this for at least six weeks, and it’s finally, finally finished, and i’m something like pleased with it. (thanks to swallowedsong​ for looking over it and helping me and stuff.) so, enjoy whatever this is. (really long, among other things. just a head’s up.)

            She leaves him on a Tuesday.

            Packs up her share of the apartment instead of going to work, keeps Henry home from school so he can help. Wraps picture frames in scarves and sweaters, shoves books and DVDs into boxes, throws pots and pans and casserole dishes into the back seat. One trip to unload these small bits, another for Henry’s bed and dresser and nightstand.

            It takes just over 6 hours to remove every trace of them from this apartment that was supposed to be theirs and is now just his, but she doesn’t cry as she sweeps through one last time. As she takes her key off the chain, locking the door behind her and slipping it underneath. She doesn’t feel broken or empty. Isn’t sure what it is pulsing through her, something that tastes like regret or maybe failure.

            “Sorry, kid,” she says, eyes still dry, once they reach the car. He just shrugs. Smiles a small, sad thing.

            “It’s okay.”

            It’s not.

            But maybe it will be.
