And when will I meet him? the querent asked.
Shuffle, shuffle; pick a card. At the end of August.
Oops. I should have kept my mouth shut, I thought, as I could see that the questioner was already imagining the circumstances of the meeting: what he would be wearing, what she would be wearing, what they would say to each other, what the weather would be like, where they would meet. Et cetera.
August came and went, and there was no meeting.
Or maybe there was, but the questioner didn’t or couldn’t recognize it because it didn’t match or fit the picture that – in her needy way at the time of asking – she had, not so much created, but rather had conjured up.
This is how you can ruin someone’s life with Tarot cards.
Giving dates is ok, I think, and sometimes people need to know so they can make other decisions. You have to be careful about the questioner, though. This is one reason I like the Celtic Cross, because it also shows the kind of person you are answering questions for, so you can make a judgement about what to say and what to leave out.
