1. When I initially mentioned the order that I was going to take the cards in, especially the Minor Arcana, I went with a more traditional order for the cards. However, in re-reading Chanel's book on the King's Journey tarot, I remembered that she had a specific order in mind for the Minor Arcana that corresponded more with her model for the journey of the deck. This makes a lot of sense, and in that spirit I am going to take the Minor Arcana in the following order:
In this manner I can model my own personal journey in the same way that Chanel did when she designed the deck.
2. I am a busy man with a full time job and two volunteer obligations. I believe that I have set myself up for failure in setting a six month goal for completion of this project. I thought that a short timeline would be a good discipline, however the nature of this project is all about reflection and introspection on the journey that I am taking - the journey that we all are taking. So, again, in the spirit of Julie and Julia, which was my inspiration for the project, I am setting myself a one year deadline for the project. Therefore my completion date will be February 12, 2013. This way I can truly take the time I need for each card and also be able to reflect on the overall nature of how the cards fit together - the "big picture."
I sure wish there was a tracking option for these blogs so I could set deadlines - oh well! Such is life.
That is all. Next up is the Empress.
