Tower time.

I picked this up on DrSharna's blog and thought I'd give it a try. It worked out rather well, I think. I'm still working on a way to post heyJude's link without giving away what the answers mean. I'll get to it...

You are The Tower

Ambition, fighting, war, courage. Destruction, danger, fall, ruin.

The Tower represents war, destruction, but also spiritual renewal. Plans are disrupted. Your views and ideas will change as a result.

The Tower is a card about war, a war between the structures of lies and the lightning flash of truth. The Tower stands for "false concepts and institutions that we take for real." You have been shaken up; blinded by a shocking revelation. It sometimes takes that to see a truth that one refuses to see. Or to bring down beliefs that are so well constructed. What's most important to remember is that the tearing down of this structure, however painful, makes room for something new to be built.

This is neat. I'm the Wheel of Fortune, apparently: "Good fortune and happiness but sometimes a species of intoxication with success.

The Wheel of Fortune is all about big things, luck, change, fortune. Almost always good fortune. You are lucky in all things that you do and happy with the things that come to you. Be careful that success does not go to your head however. Sometimes luck can change."

What's fascinating to me is that I've been having an ongoing, multi-person conversation about exactly these issues for the last 3 days or so. I feel so lucky, and I don't know what I've done to deserve the good things in my life. I'm grateful for each of them and a little bit the other shoe going to fall? When? If trying to be a good person is not enough, how does one deal with the randomness of luck?

...Anyway, navel-gazing from across the ocean. Thanks for the link.

I also am a wheel of fortune
on nearly all (except sex and sign) I could flip a coin on a couple of answers so I did it again and come out an Empress.

And Greeny, I prefer gazing at (or in) the ocean... hehehehe

Hmm... the Tower does seem to be a good match for anyone British. We complain all the time except when we have a war. It's the only time everyone seems to be happy. Look at the stories from the World Wars - rationing, shortages, power cuts yet everyone was cheerful. Now we have long-term peace and everyone is miserable.

Peace irritates the British, I think. I hope nobody picks on this country while I'm alive. Most of our population would be delighted. It must be that Celtic heritage.

I wouldn't be but then I'm not entirely genetically British. But that's another story, for another post.

You haven't seen my navel.



heyjude said...

But I HAVE seen quite a few others and a lot of oceans and ocean life, so I'll stand firm

- at least until you show us your remarkable navel. giggle, giggle..

I never claimed that my navel was remarkable.

I, too, am a big fan of oceans and ocean life, actually. Now THAT is remarkable stuff!
