Good Morning and Welcome! to The Fool’s Tarot for 26/03/2018; I haven’t changed decks today, so it is again the *Egipcios Kier Tarot* and the *Labyrinth Wisdom Cards*. The pre-Tarot start of my morning was particularly purgatorial and pain-filled, so as to cause me to abandon everything this morning in the hope of “just get it done, Mark, please.” (It is usually this bad in the mornings now, but it lets up after about three hours and I can continue the day in at least a functional mode.) The *Labyrinth Wisdom Cards* are turning out to be better than I originally thought; they work as the oracular card quite well, and I find them full of a kind of balm for my tortured physical state every morning. I don’t know why, they aren’t particularly esoteric or Deep, but they ARE well thought out and given a form that is both encouraging and directive. I like them. Onward & Upward! The draw for today is as follows: A) Guiding Arcanum = XVIII the Moon; B) Male current = #29 Domesticity: C) Female current = #38 Duplicity, and my oracular card for today is #31 Sacred Path. Ahem . . .  {{cough cough}}, well . . .  XVIII the Moon as my guiding arcanum, eh? My, what a NOT fucking hopeful sign as I head into this week of tests and scans and BS in order to define the parameters of my cancer. On the other hand, perhaps it signifies that I am going to be so 
occupied with the esoteric front of the current malady that attention paid to the Physical is largely unneeded – the “game” is in my mind. LOL, don’t worry, you don’t have to write me off just yet, I’m not one of those people who thinks that going to Mexico for injections of ground peach pits or traveling to Manila to see a psychic surgeon to remove the cancer without operating on me is a grand idea. If I were to do ANYTHING rather contra-indicated it would be to deny chemotherapy if it were clear that I’m not going to survive anyway. I’m not going to go through months of poisoning my body just to have those worthless months to suffer, I prefer to get on with it and begin the next part of the Journey. I’ve ALWAYS liked voyaging. “Arcanum XVIII: The Twilight in the act of manifesting the magical power of light. It is a symbol of mystery of serpentine power encrypted in the letter Tzaddi. It represents the principle of the force of magnetism, the clamor that inquires, the emanation that fascinates the power of incarnation. Modeling attribute: Scorpio, abode of Uranus. In the Spiritual Plane is the infinite abyss in that the created moves, the mysterious power by which things have their being. In the Mental Plane represents the force of the negation as evidence of the affirmation, the negative as an exponent of the positive. In the Physical Plane it tends to the processes related to the manifestation of the powers hidden, the action of subtle forces, which requires deliberation without reaching resolution. Transcendent axiom: ‘Let your charity be inexhaustible granary, and your patience no less inexhaustible than your charity.’' As a predictor, it tends to instability, inconstancy, ambushes, confusion, changes, uncertain situations, long deliberations, unexpected impediments, late results, triumphs and apparent failures.” (“La Cábala de Predicción” by J. Iglesias Janeiro; Kier, Buenos Aires, 1984.) Moving on, I do believe 
that this next card NAILS it for male current, #29 Domesticity. When I am NOT enjoying the heck out of Voyaging, which I do enjoy most intensely (I mean as in Budapest, Prague, Vienna, Kyoto, Hong Kong, etc.; I do NOT mean Astral voyaging, of which I do very little,) I am a tremendously homebound & -happy person. I like my home; I don’t need to get out of it each day to feel alive, to feel connected. I would rather take care of business AMAP here and leave any absolutely necessary outside daily business to my wife, who LOVES doing exactly that – getting out and mixing it up. So it is super agreeable for both of us that it works out so easily. Now with the health news, I’m more than ever a homebody, especially as going out is extremely difficult and often very painful because of my pneumological issue of BPCO. LOL, I HAVE to laugh at myself; I’m such a pile of jolly news, eh? Grin. Fuck, I hate people like me who meander on about their troubles, but I understand MY need to clarify this health threat and define it and deal with it. I WANT to make a joke of it as much as possible, yet remain intensely proactive in killing its creepy parasitical manifestation in my liver. “Arcanum 29: Domesticity as an act of concord. It symbolizes the human virtue of domain by persuasion. Modeling attribute: It is associated with the Moon, the letter B and the number 2. It represents the peace of the nature, the balance of the elements, the country's joy. Transcendent axiom: "Eyes of youth may be your eyes, and the word, prudence of an elder may be". As a predictor, it promises remorse, indecision, perplexity, shyness, life country, profitable businesses, companies that will bring struggles, but of satisfactory results.” (Ibid) And then finally we have a card I don’t immediately understand, #38 Duplicity. Why in the world would THAT show up in my female atmosphere? Let us 
look; “Arcanum 38: Duplicity as an act of sagacity. It symbolizes the human virtue of voluntarily induced knowledge. Modeling attribute: It is associated with the Moon, the letter J and the number 2. It represents the beginning of antonyms as an element of comparison and selection.” (Ibid) Well, Huh! That is certainly different than I expected as a reading for the card; but I see now that this WHOLE reading is about the Moon and its various modalities of expression and manifestation. And in fact, if you take the ‘Beige Bivalve’ (me) as a whole, these two cards are in fact representatives of II the Priestess, popping along with XVIII the Moon on today’s ride. This is ALL a mystery of something to do with the feminine inside of me, and in some manner I can find my answers & solutions there. Finally AND first, the oracular card of the “Sacred Path” tells me “You are on a path of discovery and growth. Take the next step . . . Things look different when you take that next step. Go forward now in faith and confidence. Take the next step. Walk your Sacred Path.” As I had planned on doing anyway, but it IS nice to hear the advice from “another source.” Grin. Well, it’s off for scans and BS the rest of today, so I shall end here. I ask the Cosmos to grant us ALL a perception of what is the unifying point or our day today, and where it interacts with Gnosis. Be Well! Be Zen. Be Blessed!!
