Towards the end of last December, haikujaguar posted a sort of read-your-own-fortune exercise
using her Balance Cards system. I gave it a try and came up with a result that was surprisingly on target. Surprising, because the answers are considerably more specific than in the magazine quizzes I used to play with in junior high school, and I arrived at a very appropriate chronological order almost by random chance.
My reading was as follows.Lesson to learn/Message/Issue from the Distant Past: The Engine.
Directed purpose. Moving toward a specific destination. Choosing your destiny.Lesson to learn/Message/Issue of 2011: The Rogue.
Preservation of self. Taking steps to keep oneself safe. Putting oneself first, for good or ill.Message to contemplate about the Present, Right Now: The Guardian.
Protection of others. Looking outside the self. Being strong for others/the outside world.Theme/Message to Ponder for 2012: Family.
Ties we don't choose. People we deal with that we were born to, or cannot choose.Something You Should Consider Working On: The Fallow Field.
An open heart. Being willing to let things in. Being open to possibilities and people.
