Good Morning and Welcome! to The Fool’s Tarot for 19/04/2018; the deck today is *The Tarot of Saqqara* by Donald G. Beaman. This is simply a magical deck with which to read, and if you can find one, quick! sell those stepchildren and obtain that deck! Grin. The oracular deck today is *The Anubis Oracle* by Kris Waldherr, N. Scully and L. Star-Wolf. Onward & Upward! I like the draw today, especially as it leads me into a completely new area which until now I have tried more to avoid him than to talk with him; I am speaking of Horus, the Charioteer in that Chariot. I have had a
difficult time all of my thinking life dealing with the Christian interpretation of Jesus of Nazareth and the whole Christian myth cycle; the early Church Fathers, as they are called, did a terrible job crafting a religion. The wholesale theft from other religions isn’t even given the decency of a new wrapping; they just change the name & the costume and hike it right back up on the pillar again as “Jesus Christ.” BUT – back up; the original
“Jesus” was Horus, and all of that Christophilia about the various ages and “wonders” of Christ are easily found in MUCH earlier texts about the Egyptian cosmology. Having been disappointed COMPLETELY with that “other savior” who wasn’t even decently packaged, I had a bit of difficulty approaching Horus, son of Osiris and Isis. Recently he has edged his way forward to a very evident position in my spiritual life, and I am feeling good about it. Moving along, we come to the highly fluidic Male current of me today, the 6 of Wands. This is “The Lord of Victory,” he is “hopeful choices, the effect of external forces on choices, Hopes and Fears determining choices [and] Leadership that moves to the general expectation. [He is] the Crown of Hope.” (LWB.) This reminds me a great deal of XVII the Star which has been coming up so often lately; the connection is unmistakable. Finally we round the corner to
see that the Female current for this morning did indeed come out today in a BIG way, as the Queen of Cups. She isn’t quite the burn-down-the-nightclub-type, but she isn’t that far from being a very “femme fatale” as are all four queens. The Queen of Cups is the Oracle of the North – Wisdom and Meditation. The Queen of the Thrones of Water is ruled by the sign of Cancer (yeah, har, har, har.) Her motto is “I use with compassion.” (LWB.) As I wrote earlier, I like this draw, although it has nothing outwardly showy or eye-catching about. The cards are simply laying out a few simple truths in me and where my various subconscious functions communicate, as well of not giving me ANY “Let’s talk about your illness, OK, OK,??? Right!” The only thing I have to report on that field today is that I discovered a new side effect last night – occasional hallucinations! Wow, now that IS a bonus. Nothing weird or twisted, just a few light visuals and a great novella I “listened to” completely - I think. Grin.) Well, let’s wrap this up and take it home to the Gimp, eh? LOL. I ask the Cosmos to grant us ALL the ability to see the sparkling gem inside the lump of shit today. Grin. Be Well! Be Zen. Be Blessed!!
