La Papesse

Posted in Divination on January 24, 2009 by ladyoctober

The reading of tarot cards is my most accurate form of divining the future and, atop my velvet-covered tablecloth, I count out the cards of destiny, endlessly constructing a constellation of possibilities in order to improve my night-scented vision. I have been a cartomancer ever since I became a young woman, and now, each one of the cards are so worn and deformed from years of constant shuffling that it is difficult to make out the image on any one of them. This seems somehow more ominous, for each of the cards are marked with the depredations of age and so, each future that I divine always seems to be marred by the devastated face of the card itself. No matter what image appears, it is always the same: always I see sorrow, death, dissolution.

Recently, I have only been able to cast myself one fate. Always, the first card I turn is La Papesse: the curvilinear shape of sagacity herself. Is my future so irreversible?

My friend, the scribble spectre has asked me to divine the future for him, yet I am not sure that I am able; for the future is such a difficult study to be thoroughly acquainted with and his future is far too important for me to misinterpret. Still, to his wise speech I could give no answer and so, I reluctantly agreed to lay out the inevitable cards of the tarot. I am unsure as to when I will see him, but each time the wind howls and the rain lashes against my window lattice, every nerve in my body is thrilled, for I know that he is coming.

The strength of the entire gendarmerie came to my door a few nights ago, asking about his whereabouts of which I said nothing. I have sworn my allegience to the spectre and no silver-plated formality can break an oath that I have placed within the perennial recesses of my heart.  All I can say is that his destiny is like a permeable sunstance, and I feel the power of it now, beneath my own skin. I pray that he is safe.

The Multiversal Spring

Posted in Divination on January 10, 2009 by ladyoctober

When divining the future, there are certain things that must be considered. First, the images that present themselves are autonomous and of the Multiverse and because of this fact, they are illimitable. They are not merely the small sum of finite human experience and to think in this way is to be foolishly unarmed. Secondly, objectivity is paramount when interpreting the future and this can only be attained by remaining open to other perceptions.

Although all of the writing you will find on this page was written by my hand, I am not the sole creator. Instead, I am merely a perceptive scribe, translating the independent frequencies that present themselves to me. If this is honoured, each of us can transcribe literary experience from the Multiverse, but only if we can remain open to this divine source. Instead of needing to be the only creator, we can channel this Universal wellspring and wait for it to reveal its secrets.

I will endeavour to present perceptions I have made that I feel are worth your time.
