Psychics suck. Not all of them, but the dubious women who approach you on a street are no good. Nor are the ones trying to make rent. They will tell you that a dark-haired woman is jealous of you.

The Hanging Man Tarot or La Pendu in the Tarot de Marseilles, representing sacrifice and rebirth. The imagery invokes the myth of Adonis, Christ, Osiris, Odin and many more— a dying God who ails, dies, and transforms.

TEN OF SWORDS This tarot card represents the wake of a devastation. Often times our anxieties amplify a difficult situation.

EIGHT OF PENTACLES A card that represents diligence and absorption in one’s work. By sticking to the task at hand, rewards gradually reveal themselves. Knowledge through hard-won experience precedes pride in one’s craft. Pride does not distract, but keeps one’s eyes set on excellence.

The Fool. First Tarot card in the Major Arcana. The imagery recalls the story of Percival as he embarks on his quest. The card warns of folly through carelessness, but at the core of this folly is an unyielding, earnest thirst for new experiences.
