What Does The Deck Say? November 11, 2017

The Bosch Tarot is a series of collages based on the paintings of Hieronymus Bosch. Using a unique set of meanings that is not derived from Waite, it will sometimes read direct, and sometimes read like a koan. It is a good deck for introspection and examination of internal motives.

Today’s cards: 9 of Chalices, 10 of Swords, & 10 of Wands.

Trying to define yourself based on other people’s experiences and reactions is a good way to lose track of yourself altogether. Somewhere, under that collapsed construction of other people’s expectations and manipulations, is the seed of who you really are. It is going to take work to dig that seed out from under the rubble, and you are going to feel vulnerable until you learn the difference between yourself(s) and what other people want you to be. But it will be worth the work, and who you eventually become (and continue becoming) is the right person to be.
