The Journey

I grabbed this quiz off of a friend's blog. I thought it was very appropriate.

You are The Lovers

Motive, power, and action, arising from Inspiration and Impulse.

The Lovers represents intuition and inspiration. Very often a choice needs to be made.

Originally, this card was called just LOVE. And that's actually more apt than "Lovers." Love follows in this sequence of growth and maturity. And, coming after the Emperor, who is about control, it is a radical change in perspective. LOVE is a force that makes you choose and decide for reasons you often can't understand; it makes you surrender control to a higher power. And that is what this card is all about. Finding something or someone who is so much a part of yourself, so perfectly attuned to you and you to them, that you cannot, dare not resist. This card indicates that you have or will come across a person, career, challenge or thing that you will fall in love with. You will know instinctively that you must have this, even if it means diverging from your chosen path. No matter the difficulties, without it you will never be complete.

Take the Test to Find Out.

This got me thinking... this is what I want to write about. THIS is what I hope to embody in my writing. I am proud to say that I am very much in love with my DH, and I don't see that ever changing. I want to put forth that wonder, that amazingly powerful feeling that the universe is FOR you. To me, it's all about the journey. The journey from discovery to understanding; from denial to submission. That journey that wrenches your guts, heats your blood and makes you want to cry with joy.

I know, rather deep for a Tuesday, but there you go. Mysti posted the other day on why she writes. Well, this is why I write: To tell the story of The Journey, my only wish is that I tell the story well.

I'm the Empress. I found this interesting because I have always loved the story of Persephone. Great post! I think its important to know why we do what we do- it keeps us going in those down times.

I am 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.
