Here’s one that just sprung out of my head: On a scale of 1-10, how much energy do I have? After shuffling and cutting the deck, draw until you draw a Major Arcana card. Count how many card it took to draw to get your “number.” The card itself will reflect the type of energy you possess at the moment. Reversals count as negative numbers, so watch out!

Ready? Here goes nothing, with my cherished Deviant Moon Tarot.

*drumroll please*

I didn’t even get a chance to draw, the World XXI leaped from my deck!  The Mermaid doing the Mamba, is always my first impression of this beautifully strange card. Two fish frame the top of the card, possibly the same two featured in the Fool card. The traditional wreath is replaced by a snake eating its tail, emulating the circular nature of life, death, and rebirth. The mutated lion and goat lay at the bottom, with snarling grins. The snake serves as a frame, a gateway between the barren wasteland background featured on many of the cards, and the industrial world within.

I am finally back online (hooray!) and, indeed, ready to take on the world. While my energy levels are a tad low today, thanks to my cold and the greyness of winter settling in, I am well on my way to whipping around her duel wands. She is beautiful, with flowing blue hair and a simple crown adorned with pearls. I am always drawn by her beauty, as if she were withholding some great secret. The truth of the matter is, there is no way to express what the world encompasses, but she lives it openly.

I couldn’t imagine a better card to express how I feel today. Everything in my life has built up to this moment, living my dreams and providing for my family and myself. (“All roads lead to Rome,” as they say, is my favorite catch phrase in life.) All the successes and failures add up to this very moment, where I am older, wiser, and ready to begin anew.

Give this a try, and let me know how your personal energy gauge turns out! This little exercise was far more insightful than I even suspected. The tarot cards never cease to surprise me.
