Comparing and interpreting artistic impressions of Tarot cards

I had a friendly argument debate with my teen girl about the Ten of Swords card. 🙃

What precipitated our dispute deliberation was another person, a youtube tarot reader by the name of Chris. He was doing a Libra reading and came across the Ten of Swords card which he interpreted in a way that is different from how I see the card.

Wearing the chauffeur hat on the west coast

I’m a mom of sporty kids, right? My kids spent most of their childhood being schlepped to and from rinks, to and from baseball diamonds, to and from gymnastics gyms, to and from track and field facilities, and to and from tournaments.

But right now, I’m chauffeuring around Vancouver in my brother’s car.

Evil spell

A few weeks ago I had a first-time experience at a nail salon. 💅

My 14 year old daughter was staying with me and my mom over parts of her spring break when she approached me with this:

“I know you’ve never been to a nail salon,” she said. “I thought it might be fun for us to do this together.”

Now, how can I say no to such a cute invitation?

The familiarity of *here we go again*

Two days ago a dad of a girl on my daughter’s ringette team said two nearby towns are shutting the league for the remainder of this year.

A day later our league reported a positive case in a U12 team on the house league side. (My kid is U16 rep.)

On the way to pick up my niece at University, my phone interrupted my GPS to announce from various people who chat with me that this and that is getting canceled. Mostly kid activities related to sports.

Even the NHL is on pause, I found out later.

“Out of an abundance of caution…”

That’s the wording they’re using.

How life has changed and a few other updates

I’ve been co-parenting my teens while not living at home. It’s been… interesting.

Did you know teens are not chatty? I mean, all this time when I was home with them they stared at their phones, chatted with friends, yada yada… they knew I was there, in the background, ready to pour food into their little gullets, but they didn’t really interact with me too much. Which is completely normal teenage behaviour, I’m not complaining here. They have their lives back now that lockdowns have been eliminated (for how long though? ugh…) Chatting with mom was just not… done. Or something.

Unless they were hungry. 😛

Moving on(wards)

I made an interesting discovery the other day: the five tarot readers I listened to on youtube – while designing jewelry in a quiet house sans kids – all talked about how Libra is either traveling or moving in September. ⚖️♎

They all mentioned this. They all had a similar message for the collective. They all pulled cards and interpreted them from different geographical regions at different times or days. And still, the messages were eerily similar.

It was a bit perplexing. 😀

So weird how the universe works… 😳

Maybe I’ll write up a thing for next Tarot Tuesday on this topic. Stay tuned.

Here’s the thing:

A few days of solitude

I’ve taken a bit of a blogging break and I will continue but since it’s 5:00 a.m. on a Saturday and I’m on my second load of laundry I thought I might as well sit here with coffee and have a bit of a chat with you. 😃

The family left for camping on Thursday and they’re coming back I think Sunday or Monday.

I had intentions to do a lot of writing.

That didn’t happen. 🙄
