Card interpretations

April 11, 2010

I had a great one-on-one session tonight with Jessica Contreras, one of the women taking my beginning tarot class. Jessica had wonderful observations about the cards, which she has given me permission to share here.

When Jessica turned over this card, she said, "Oh, it's The Fool's brother!"

Jessica, in part, interpreted this card to be about "stepping up."

Jessica pointed out that the back of the King's throne looks like a ruler. She saw this card as being, in part, about "measuring up."

The party’s over…

Here’s a story one of my high school students came up with for the Five of Cups and the Three of Pentacles:

"He got to the party late, and there were empty cups everywhere."

"It was his parents who made him late. They made him do chores—wanted him to hang something up for them."
