While talking with another person, if you can have
You will be creating an environment where both you and the other person can relax, feel valued, and be truly as you are in that moment.

They can be. The more open you are with me the more helpful I can be. Some querents prefer a “cold” reading. Meaning they prefer to provide no information or feedback at all. I don’t mind this. It’s a fun challenge. And I enjoy doing the best I can with whatever unconscious information I am able to pick up. It’s always a pleasure when the querent finds my reading accurate under these circumstances.
When I first began studying the tarot, I was often troubled by how The Fool was defined. I found myself feeling offended by the meanings frequently given to that card. They seemed to equate naïvete and innocence with foolishness. There was also the implication that these states of childlike wonder were inherently dangerous. This is conveyed by The Fool being ready to step off a cliff. The idea that this is the starting point of a journey felt harsh to me.
I was relieved when I found that some tarot historians believe The Fool is actually the endpoint of the journey. The Fool is a wise person, an enlightened person who because of their wisdom may seem crazy to others. The Fool is courageous and unphased by danger and their own human frailty. The Fool occupies a realm where compassion is all. With their hard-earned wisdom, The Fool is a powerful force. If The Fool is on your side you are fortunate.

A new Christmas song.
Tucked inside John Hurt,
His blood really red,
The chestburster alien,
Stuck out his sweet head…
How about something different for a manger scene?
Let’s have Kane lying on the dining table of the Nostromo with the chestburster popping out and the rest of the crew standing around like the wise men. Dallas, Ripley, Parker, Brett, Lambert, and Ash are celebrating the birth of the Alien!
Everything has a meaning. Except when it doesn’t. And when meaning is present, it is not necessarily significant. This relieves a lot of pressure.
