Well, this is going to be short and sweet. I pulled Wisdom again today. (I drew this card at the beginning of the week here.)
I heard a very simple message when I looked at this card today. Learn something new. So that is going to be my task for the day. I am going to learn something new. I haven't figured out what that's going to be yet. But the day is still young.
Update: Ugh. So I racked my brain trying to figure out what fabulous new thing I would learn today. I finally settled on getting out a tarot deck that has confused the heck out of me, and doing some research on it to see if I could learn to work with it.
It's the Cagliostro, a now out-of-print deck which my mom gifted me with last summer. I have yet to work with it for several reasons. The majors and minors are completely different styles from each other, and that throws me off a bit. The majors are three dimensional while the minors are two dimensional. I have another deck where the majors and minors don't match, and I haven't worked with that one either for the same reason. It feels like I'm working with two different decks. Also, this deck has non-scenic minors which I am not attracted to. But that's only the beginning.
The Cagliostro deck is multi-faceted, and none of the facets are ones I'm familiar with. It is apparently a deck based on the work of Papus, and a freakish combination of the Marseilles, Etteilla and Wirth systems of tarot, with playing card suits, astrological dates, zodiac signs, Egyptian influences, unfamiliar keywords and the occasional Hebrew symbol thrown into the mix. My lack of knowledge on all of the above doesn't bode well for working with this deck. There's just too much going on, and there's probably even some things I've left out!
After attempting to do research online for awhile, hoping to gain more insight into how to work with this deck, all I ended up with was a raging headache. I think if I were stranded on a desert island, this would have to be the deck I'd take with me because it might take me forever to figure it out.
The wisdom I have gained today is that I am not ready for this deck yet, and it can be put away again for a day in the future when I'm feeling abundantly curious and/or scholarly. Or I might get a little crazy and use it for my daily draws one week ... disregard all the symbolism I'm clueless about, just use it purely intuitively and see what bizarre insights come out of my interpretations.
