hd_worldcup: Tarot Prompt - Strength

"Literally, the Strength card represents strength, courage and determination – trusting your own abilities. It also represents compassion. It is intellect and reason coupled with enthusiasm and energy. You can deal with whatever life throws at you. Overcoming an obstacle. Seizing control of your destiny.

It is a time for being constructive, not destructive. It is a time for discipline and listening to your inner voice for direction. Understanding the consequences to your actions. It can also speak of the awareness of temptations and the ability to overcome them.

Reversed - Too emotional. Not thinking situations through. Loss of courage. Abandoning your values. Being driven by impulses. Unjustified use of strength. Resorting to intimidation in an effort to manipulate others. Tyranny. Lack of faith. Abuse of power. Succumbing to temptation." - bewitchingways.com

hd_worldcup: Tarot Prompt - The Hanged Man

"The Hanged Man is a card about suspension, not life or death. This is a time of trial or meditation, selflessness, sacrifice, prophecy. The Querent stops resisting; instead he makes himself vulnerable, sacrifices his position or opposition, and in doing so, gains illumination. Answers that eluded him come clear, solutions to problems are found. He sees the world differently, has almost mystical insights. This card can also imply a time when everything just stands still, a time of rest and reflection before moving on. Things will continue on in a moment, but for now, they float, timeless." - aeclectic.net

Okay this round has two new favorites for me! WOOT! Go read if you haven't already, because I'm feeling the squee more than ever now \o/

H/D is back to being SHINY, SHINY, SHINY!

hd_worldcup: Tarot Prompt - The Moon

"The Moon is all about visions and illusions, madness, genius and poetry. This is a card that has to do with sleep, and so with both dreams and nightmares. It is a scary card in that it warns that there might be hidden enemies, tricks and falsehoods. But it should also be remembered that this is a card of great creativity, of powerful magic, primal feelings and intuition. The Querent who gets this card should be warned that they may be going through a time of emotional and mental trial; if they have any past mental problems, they must be vigilant in taking their medication. They should avoid drugs or alcohol, as abuse of either will cause them irreparable damage. This time however, can also result in great creativity, psychic powers, visions and insight. They can and should trust their intuition." - aecle ctic.net
