Ten of Swords

Terrible Tarot

It’s the assistant again. Hi.

Here’s another entry I found. I’m uploading it on my way to the airport. A representative of SAUCE’s sister organization, the Kinship of Experts in Tea, Coffee and Herbs’ Unfailing Predictions (KETCHUP) is flying in to rescue our friends, who disappeared into the void after a botched home exorcism. I’ve never met this person. I’m not even sure of their name. Everyone I talked to over the phone was so hopped-up on caffeine that I barely understood a word.

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
