Tonight, I got obsessed. It’s Blogthings. If I had to make a guess – I did 15% of them. Read at your own risk. It’s really weird how the self can preoccupy so much of our energy. In many ways there is something good about that, (as Gandhi said: “The only battleground is within”.) But on the other hand, it’s sort of ludicrous. Like who cares about one person, it’s many that matter. But then the many are made of ones. Ones matter too. The individual matters. That’s what I’m trying to get myself to really believe. So yeah I recommend Blogthings to help with intense self-mastery. You can also take up karate or knitting.

 And finally, what Tarot Card are You? 

You are The High Priestess

Science, Wisdom, Knowledge, Education.

The High Priestess is the card of knowledge, instinctual, supernatural, secret knowledge. She holds scrolls of arcane information that she might, or might not reveal to you. The moon crown on her head as well as the crescent by her foot indicates her willingness to illuminate what you otherwise might not see, reveal the secrets you need to know. The High Priestess is also associated with the moon however and can also indicate change or fluxuation, particularily when it comes to your moods.

Postscript: Well, firstly, if I was so scientific, I probably wouldn’t look for obscure reasons as to why I procrastinate and would employ the cost/benefit analysis or some other positivisitic method of understanding myself (unless, of course, science can be construed in a different non-positivistic framework). And secondly, I am not a very moodly person, pretty stable and consistent – ask people who know me. Thirdly, I agree with a lot of what this card says about me…grrr.

So, what Tarot card are you? Take the Test if you dare.

Thanks to Ghana Geek for posting this so that I have things to do the night before the Coptic Orthodox Christmas. How pious of me.
