The Tarot Of The Walking Dead

I’ve just finished mainlining series two of ‘The Walking Dead’. Seeing as how I can’t get those zombies out of my head I thought we might explore the Tarot of this television show.

The Chariot + Strength Reversed: Dickheads In Cars!

Well, I got tooted long and hard on the road today by some young jerk in a baseball cap. I was at a junction where cars had the option of veering left or continuing ahead. The car in front of me had its left blinker flashing so I stopped to allow it to turn ahead of me. Maybe the blinker was on by mistake because although the driver slowed down to make the turn he didn’t take it. The young jock behind me gave me a good bollocking on his horn instead. Because…that’s what we do in Australia. Not slow down and let people through but honk to tell them to move their $#!! arse.

I file this under The Chariot because it was a situation involving cars (and a young dude) and Strength Reversed for cowardly/impolite behaviour. Bet that bloke wouldn’t have behaved like that if his mum was in the car!

Do drivers behave like this in your country too?

Strength Reversed: Being A Coward

Strength R

It’s one o’clock in the morning here in Australia and I just sprung someone spraying graffiti on the side of my house. A kid in a red jacket. I went out to confront him and he ran away. I didn’t bother giving chase, he could hardly stand up straight, god knows what he’s been inhaling tonight (hmmm, now that I think about it, maybe the fumes???) But seriously, I think that if you’re going to spray graffiti you should at least have the balls to own up to what you’ve done. Maybe he ran because it was rubbish. Another boring tag. Like a dog pissing on a wall. Why can’t I ever get a cool graffiti artist instead?

The Tarot Of Game Of Thrones Season Two

I’ve just been on a mad Game Of Thrones bender. Watched all season two in one long blissful night. So I thought I’d have a go at discussing the Tarot of GOT Season Two. I won’t be able to explain everything, the tapestry is too rich, but will try to pinpoint some of the major themes and characters.

Funtime Friday: When Clean Means Dirty And A Bus Stop Dancing Queen

I’ve posted a couple of smile-inducing video clips to my Facebook page tonight including…

7 Swords

A fake ad made by the famous film-making Coen brothers to promote clean coal. The black clouds of smoke coming out of the clean coal spray cans gives the lie to the use of the adjective ‘clean’ in conjunction with ‘coal’. I’m filing this under the Seven Of Swords: Being sneaky. Trying to get away with something.

You can find this clip at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uFJVbdiMgfM&feature=share.

A woman dancing surreptitiously at a bus stop. I’m filing this under the following two cards:

Strength Reversed: Lacking confidence

The World: Being in the moment.

Mind you, I wouldn’t be brave enough to dance at all in public so good on her!

Have a GREAT weekend everyone!!!

The Tarot Of Shane Koyczan’s Anti-Bullying Love Poem ‘To This Day’

A Canadian poet by the name of Shane Koyczan posted an animated spoken poem called ‘To This Day’ to YouTube a week or so ago which has gone viral. It deals with the profound and lasting impact bullying at school can have on the individual. This is an issue which has impacted my immediate family in a profound way over the last couple of years and is close to my heart. I’m going to examine the Tarot of the poem which you can find on my Facebook page or at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vE1Y2vGVcxw.
