Casino Fatale

Umm, sure. Last time I was Death. Must've changed my favorite color or something.

You are The Tower

Ambition, fighting, war, courage. Destruction, danger, fall, ruin.

The Tower represents war, destruction, but also spiritual renewal. Plans are disrupted. Your views and ideas will change as a result.

The Tower is a card about war, a war between the structures of lies and the lightning flash of truth. The Tower stands for "false concepts and institutions that we take for real." You have been shaken up; blinded by a shocking revelation. It sometimes takes that to see a truth that one refuses to see. Or to bring down beliefs that are so well constructed. What's most important to remember is that the tearing down of this structure, however painful, makes room for something new to be built.

It says I am "strength."

Courage, strength, fortitude. Power not arrested in the act of judgement, but passing on to further action, sometimes obstinacy.

This is a card of courage and energy. It represents both the Lion's hot, roaring energy, and the Maiden's steadfast will. The innocent Maiden is unafraid, undaunted, and indomitable. In some cards she opens the lion's mouth, in others she shuts it. Either way, she proves that inner strength is more powerful than raw physical strength. That forces can be controlled and used to score a victory is very close to the message of the Chariot, which might be why, in some decks, it is Justice that is card 8 instead of Strength. With strength you can control not only the situation, but yourself. It is a card about anger and impulse management, about creative answers, leadership and maintaining one's personal honor. It can also stand for a steadfast friend.

It says that I'm the Ace of Diamonds.

No peaking!

Let's see...sez my card is "The Star". I guess it fits, since I'm usually optimistic without any real reason to be that way. ;)

Hope, expectation, Bright promises.

The Star is one of the great cards of faith, dreams realised

The Star is a card that looks to the future. It does not predict any immediate or powerful change, but it does predict hope and healing. This card suggests clarity of vision, spiritual insight. And, most importantly, that unexpected help will be coming, with water to quench your thirst, with a guiding light to the future. They might say you're a dreamer, but you're not the only one.

Death, and then the Tower? Interesting reading you have going on there.

I suggest taking a very relaxing bubble bath and copious notes on your life. A fictionalized account of it could someday be a best seller.

In any says to me that you need chocolate. Stat. The good kind, too, not that horrible crap that is half wax that they use to make chocolate bunnies for 99 cents kind of stuff. Go for a tiny bit of quality chocolate. Much better. Oh yes. Ghirardelli, Dove, Ethel M, all are good choices. Even Hershey's Special Dark. Dark chocolate should do it.

It's truly not a milk chocolate kind of reading you have going on there. Not yet. If you have to, ok, some nuts are fine, caramel is extremely questionable, and fruit fillings of any kind are totally out of the question. Yes, that means no chocolate covered cherries, no raspberry creams.

Do not be tempted by mint additions, either. White chocolate? Please! Wait till you get a fluffy, happy card like "the Lovers".

You may require more than one dose of dark chocolate to get rid of the bad juju. It's ok. Give in to the dark side of chocolate.

You know you want to.

Now, 'scuse me, got to attend to "The King of Bottles" in the other room.

Jen: I totally believe that about you.

Slappy: You too.

Kory: Thanks, I know. My life requires dark chocolate. And I am writing it down, though it may take longer than I have left to live. Thanks for your help.
