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.

The Tarot Of Game Of Thrones Season One

So I made the fatal mistake of letting a boy in my local video shop (yes, some of us still hire them instead of downloading them off the internet) talk me into renting the first few episodes of the TV series ‘Game Of Thrones’. Now of course I’m hooked. Hooked and repulsed in equal measure because Lord Of The Rings it is not. The good guys don’t necessarily win. Justice doesn’t prevail.

But I’m enjoying the characters. The women are unexpectedly diverse and well-rounded. And even though I haven’t quite got to the end of season one I thought it would be fun to explore the Tarot of the leads.

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.

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!

Five Of Swords + Seven Of Swords: Putting The Me In Mean Girls

Five Of Swords: Being mean + Seven Of Swords: Sneaking around behind other’s backs

I have a terrible confession to make. A shameful confession. It’s bad. And it’s this. Continue reading

FYI: The Medical Tarot

I thought we might have a look today at Tarot cards associated with medical issues. NOTE: Just because these cards turn up in a reading does NOT mean you have a medical condition. As I keep on saying, there are 50 shades of Tarot, 50 possible meanings (or thereabouts), for each card. Please take the following with a large grain of salt. Some I’m sure of. Others are educated guesses.

The Tarot Of The Dark Knight Rises!

I finally got around to watching The Dark Knight Rises months after everyone else. Am not a big fan of movie violence so was a bit meh about the action but enjoyed the characters and the plot. Let’s have a look at the Tarot of this movie…
