Card 5 is the Hierophant, and card 7 is the Chariot. I haven't done card 5 because I'm not completely pleased with
my selection of images so far. The Chariot is not done because it's actually going to be really easy, and so I did
4, 6, and 8 first since I had a big block of time this last weekend. Maybe I'll do The Chariot after I sleep a while,
assuming I don't sleep through my night off... as cold as it is, that will be tempting.
I may like Strength the best so far. It has "strength" in Nepali on it above the tiger's head - strength is "tajat,"
and that is how you write tajat. I meant to put maya (love) on the Lovers card, but forgot until the end and then didn't
find a good place for it. Why Spike and Ripley (that yellow face is Sigourney Weaver)? Ripley is a pretty damn
good example of a strong female lead, and she just needs to be on the card. Spike I chose because, after reading the
lesson and seeing that it was about conquering your lower nature and developing inner strength, I realized that Spike was
the only character I could think of who had done that. He went out and fought to GET a soul (wasn't "cursed" with one
like Angel) in order to become a better man (for love, but still - what better motivation?). Most other strong characters
that I could think of started out "good" - they didn't have to do much conquering, at least not as noticebly as Spike did.
I suppose a case could be made for Cordelia, but I've just never been a Cordy fan. And characters turning to the dark
side and then back like Willow don't count. And I'm not sure Vader turning back after all those years is a shining example,
Anyway. This is all the updating I'm going to do this time around. Namaste!
