MOON PHASE: Waning—Last Quarter tomorrow!
TAROT of the DAY: 3 of CUPS (Marriage/Birth; also joining a group of like-minded individuals; good luck; fulfillment of something long awaited.)

Yes…oblogations. And obligations. Tarot has become my oBLOGation…since I’ve no pertinent news to report on the book (though I expect there will be much coming shortly.) So today as I drew the 13th card for this ‘new addition’ to the blog, I decided to look back over what’s been drawn and analyze if there is anything unusual there. 5 Major Arcana, 4 Cups, 2 Wands, and 1 each of Swords and Pentacles. There are 22 Major Arcana cards and 56 (14 each) of the four suits, totaling 78 cards. How cool is it that, though less than a third of the total cards are considered Major Arcana, the greatest number of the randomly drawn cards are from that group? (I mean sure, that means that 8 are of the Minor Arcana group, but if you multiply that ratio out, it doesn’t equal out…along that math I could draw every Major A card and only have drawn half the Minor A cards…) Next is 4 cards from Cups (the suit of emotions)—less than a fifth of the cards are of that suit, yet a third of the drawn cards are Cups.

So what does this tell me? Hmmm. I’ll have to ponder it. If you’re out there, what do you think of this?
