Well I think that someone must shoot first,so here you have it:
-Filling my Savinelli Autograph with plenty Syrian Latakia...
Eugim, please calm down.
By the way, I LOVE Latakia. It is only a small ingredient in the tobaccos I can buy here. I love the Perique, which is grown in Louisiana. They say the word "perique" comes from "per-ick", which is of course "prick", which is the shape of the rolled leaves of tobacco.
But the point of this post is - I don't care how you read the cards. I don't think anybody cares how you read the cards. When I come to you for a card reading, I expect you to pay attention TO ME, - I have no theories, then.
Reversals are as good as any other reading for a good reader. They read the SIGNS. Really good readers use a lot of methods. Palmistry, tea-leaves, astrology, pure clairvoyance - all of them work, when you have a pure heart and you are sure of your gift.
I tbought I was a diviner I read the cards. I cast the yarrow stalks - I even almost admitted the three coin toss.
Then I met a real diviner. He led me into a world where everything was divination. He didn't know how to read the Thoth deck, but he showed me more than I ever thought I could know even in his ignorance;
HE Was a disciple of the works of Carlos Castaneda.
So - if you live in a world of magic and mystery, you know what I am talking about. But if you want to fight in the world of sharp weapons like logic and facts, then be prepared - you HAVE TO KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT. It's a small and really unimportant world, but it is a world that may help some people avoid the heartbreak of learning that esoteric Tarot is bullshit.
I think there is something you might know that you can share. But you have to be able to share it.
