Masonic – end of a week

Posted on

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I know I haven’t posted a lot at all lately but will just share a few of the cards I pulled this last week from the Masonic Tarot. While I didn’t divide the deck in majors and minors it is clear from looking at the deck that the previous owner used only the majors and for some reason those where what came up for me these last few days too. (+ the Ace of Wands and the Ace of Coins, not shown here)

It’s a stunning deck, large long cards, great cardstock and with a sheen to the coppery coloured details in the images. The LWB is rather large but only goes into the majors and focus on the geometrical shapes and their meaning. All in all an interesting deck but one I wish I had more background in. Even though the minors are more or less ‘pips’ I quite like them and they provide just enough detail to remain interesting.

I really had more of a book-week then a tarot-week though. I set a goal of reading 150 books in 2013 and so far finished 10 and got a lot on the way. Right now I am reading this sci-fi ‘Wool’ by Hugh Howey. Highly recommended. I also went to the library and picked up a little stack even though I got a bookshelf filled with books to read already. I finished 2 by Joyce Carol Oates ‘Beasts’ and ‘Rape – a love story’ but were good but not amazing.

Oh and before I go – a dream. I was constructing houses again, from old dilapidated carparks and boat-yards. Floor boards old and grayed and thin like wafers, rope ladders winding up and down between half-built floors, couches and old flowerpots with stashed away bottles of tequila and cigars, pages torn from books all over the place and me trying to read them, to make sense of it all, to make it all come together into a whole finished thing.

With the weekend comes the picking of a new deck. I decided to go with one of my most desired decks, that I haven’t used yet perhaps out of fear that it would not live up to the expectations. It’s the Masonic Tarot made by Jean Bouchard. I actually got it for a fair price thanks for the investigators at AT forum who found out where in France to order it. The Majors is what makes this deck so lovely. But the Minors are not too bad either, I am learning to like them more and more.

MasonicTodays couple is 7 of Coins and Justice. For some reason though I kept mistaking it for the 5 of Coins instead of the 7 – all day long. Perhaps the lazy side of me somehow prefers the defeat rather then accepting the work… Cause that is how I see it. The little ladle for building clearly pointing to me the value of a sound foundation before the lofty goals and ideals of Justice.

I love this color for the Justice, so red it is impossible to not be affected. And the pomegranate exploding it’s seeds. Huddling down below the Justice face is a group of clerics. Did they do their ground-work? Does their judgment rest on a solid ground? I quite like to think that they are at least striving towards it. And I do like that they are there, cause true justice is not a solitary thing, it is only achieved when we all work together.
