Today’s cards: Queen of Cups, Ace of Staves, & 5 of Swords.

You examined the roots of the cause and the organization that is rallying for it. You have measured the cost of participation and the potential social gains and found both acceptable. You have dedicated yourself to the cause and have not come up for air or inspection since.

That dedication is blinding you to what the actual fruits of the organization’s methods are. You have become so dedicated to the ideal of what might happen, that you are not paying attention to what actually is happening, and as a result you are laying the foundations of trouble and ruin.

Look up and step back. Measure what is before you against what you were told it would be. If something must come to ruin, let it be your misplaced idealism. Walk away so you can recover and heal.


Tavaglione’s Stairs of Gold Tarot is a richly decorated esoteric book in the form of 78 tarot cards. Sometimes wildly diverging from Waite’s road, the deck can read as slim as necessary and as deep as the reader is willing to focus. Tavaglione’s Stairs of Gold Tarot is ©US Games Systems.
