In this topic, I intend to record Tarot work that I perform. I may or may not reveal the specific questions on any given day, but I will endeavor to supply such details as would make the reading relevant.

In this spread, I ask the following questions.
- What must I let go of?
- What must I work on now?
- What must I watch out for?
What Must I let go of?
Impressions : Immediately my impression was that I must let go of past harsh judgements that I have made against myself, and that I have internalized from my youth. More than that, the symbolism of the dead walking the earth shows me that there are a lot of ghosts from the past that continue to haunt me. They delight in the attention, jubilant at the life I continue to give them.
Correspondendes : Archangel Gabriel. It’s right there on the card, without any need to cross reference. From Wikipedia : " Gabriel is described as the guardian angel of Israel, defending this people against the angels of the other nations." This rings true too. A defender against all the villains of times past, continuing to do his work long after his time has come and gone.
What Must I Work On Now?
6 of Cups
Impressions : Confusing at first glance. I wasn’t sure what to make of this. However, the card quickly said to be kinder to myself. Make peace with the ghosts of the past by making amends with the mistakes you’ve made in the past. Don’t dwell, and keep your actions simple yet meaningful.
Correspondences : According to demonsanddemonolatry.com, this card has correspondences with Duke Aim and Marquis Orias. Together, what can these two offer?
Duke Aim destroys castles and cities, and makes the conjurer witty. Thinking of metaphorical castles and cities, this could easily be a call to work on personal charm. Disarm people’s defences.
Marquis Orias offers the knowledge of the virtues of the stars, transforms man, grants Dignities, and gains favor of friend and foe alike. If this isn’t a kick in the pants to ramp up the workout regimen informed by proper bloodwork and medical advice then I don’t know what is.
What Must I Watch Out For?
7 of Cups
Impressions : Shit. Illusions. Delusions. Fake women, fake opportunities, false peace, false accomplishments, only a giant waste of time. Frustrating. I won’t lie, riches and bitches are indeed a motivating factor, but this is a hard reminder that discernment is important. After all, a lot of those ghosts of the past came from a lack of proper discernment.
Correspondences Again, according to demonsanddemonolatry.com, we have correspondences with Duke Vapula and Marquis Neberius. Together, what do these two indicate for challenges to come?
Duke Vapula makes men knowledgeable in crafts, and teaches philosophy. Perhaps some false gurus lay in wait, clouding the mind wit their artifices and their sand castles in the sky. As I write this, I rememeber this line from the song “The Philosopher” by the band Death : “You know so much about nothing at all.” Sharpen my own tools in this regard so as to be careful not to fall prey to others.
Marquis Neberius makes men cunning in the arts and sciences and restores lost dignities. If we take the approach that this corresponds to a challenge to be overcome then it would suggest that the dishonest philosopher might actually be a respected scientist. I’m unclear what else to infer from this, though.
