7am is a horrible, horrible, horrible time to be awake.
i wanna know 100% what is going on in the ocean
Some little quirks I’ve noticed with my differing tarot decks:
Shadowscapes is more intuition-based than anything. More often than not, there’s meaning behind the actual book-meaning with the cards at hand. There’s little nuances to them and subtle differences in each reading. Also, with these cards, it’s established for me that certain cards mean certain things. The Page of Pentacles is almost always a messenger. Rarely is is ever meaning to a situation less it be reversed.
Deviant Moon is more practical. I have to really take it as book-meaing when coming to these. For some reason when trying to use them with feelings, it doesn’t usually correlate. Being that I’ve used Shadowscapes straight for months and was my first tarot deck, it’s weird to adjust to a deck that simply wants to be read as is, and usually there isn’t too much beyond the surface meaning.
My oracle cards refuse to be read in reverse, too. First deck I’ve gotten that will not be okay with being reversed. Is interesting.
And my Illuminati deck works well with emotional things, usually. Kinda.. slightly… tiiiiny bit over-dramatic, but I do love using it when in a tight bind.
I’ve actually been noticing that with shadowscapes. Like, with my steampunk deck, it’s sassy, but it’s very “by the book” with it’s meanings. But for shadowscapes it’s like, “no, bitch, you’re gonna read me using my pictures. The book will only help you so much MUAHAHAHAHAHAHA”
BASICALLY. See, Shadowscapes, to me, is basically an old rich man that gets angry when I don’t see the obvious and is super fucking blunt.
'Oh? You want to know what's happening with this person's future? Well here's their past, present and this person is too prideful tell them to stop that' and I'm just 'BUT WHAT ABOUT FUTURE I DIDN'T GET THE FUTURE CARD.'
And I ask again for future and get a warning for them instead. I always get warnings instead of future. (Which I’ve come to prefer)
We have a love/hate relationship but I lovelovelove this deck and because it’s so blunt it’s gotten me out of a lot of tight binds with warnings.
Pinax of Eros, Hermes and probably Aphrodite. Found in the holy shrine of Persephone at Locri in the district Mannella.
Locri was part of Magna Graecia and is situated on the coast of the Ionian Sea in Calabria in Italy.
I am in tears because I have to get to this level.
I’ve placed a donate button on the front of my blog, and I feel horrible.
Let me explain what’s going on.
I’ve been in college for 4 years now. I’m a Chinese major, hoping to work abroad and teach others about this amazing culture. I am passionately in love with languages and cultures. I’m also jobless, because no one in my area hires college student. Trust me, I’ve looked around for almost two years now.
Second off, I’m currently in $6,000 in debt for school, because my family (aka my dad’s side of the family)., refuses to cosign a loan for me. I have one year left.
I own/co-own 3 online shops. But they only pay for themselves, nothing more. I’ve maxed out ll my resources to pay for college.
My mom has helped me through this entire process.
She’s even gone through her Inheritance to pay for me.
I need help now, because I do not want to drop out of college when I have just a little bit more to go. Please. I am now begging for help.
Here’s how the Donate button will work:• First off, I can never thank you enough for any money you send.
• Second, for every minimum of $5 there will be a 3 card reading.
• For every $10 there will be a 5 card reading.
• $15 is a Full Tarot Spread
• $20 is a Past Life Reading• If there is a donation that is above $50, you will receive a full Tarot reading, a Past Life and a small wire wrapped pendant of your design.• If over $100, You will receive a Full Tarot, Past Life and a Large Wire Wrapped Pendant (pic is example) custom for you.• If there is anything over this, I will work on doing something as my thanks to you.I never ask for help, but always give it out when people need.I will make a list of who gave what, and when my finals are over and done with, I will give back to you. Or you can save it for when you would need it. Contact me via tumblr to let me know who you are and so I can keep track.I need help now.. and I’m asking. Please help me?
I think we need to talk about it.
Also I just realized from the picture I posted of lil’ 11 year old me
You can tell I was a girl scout. We don’t talk about those times of my life.
