“Boy or girl?” I asked. I drew the Two of Swords.


The Two of Swords indicates difficulty making a decision between two seemingly balanced sides, forces or ideals. My question has nothing to do with a decision; there are simply two balanced sides. It was a stupid question. Either/or & yes/no questions just don’t fly with the tarot deck. The baby is most likely either a boy or a girl. I do not believe the tarot can tell the future or reveal the unknown. I don’t want it to. I just wanted to be able to say something like, “This is a real masculine/ feminine card. It will be a boy/ girl.” Exactly. Anyhow, I think it’s a girl. I’ve thought so since the start. There. I’ve said it to the world. Of course, I could be wrong. That’s perfectly fine. This tarot card adds nothing to the situation. I will learn the answer in a month.

Six of Cups β€” Tarot Nova

Interpretation: “Your personal magnetism is on the rise. Be firm in affairs of the heart. Don’t let the past detract from the present. This is an excellent time to start a new love affair [I don’t think so!], renew vows [what vows?] or relocate [hardly!].”


My reading: Reunion, nostalgia, childhood memories, innocence.


I asked the deck, “Tell me something about my mother.”


I am visiting my parents’ house in Syracuse, NY. It is the house where I grew up. I have been here a week. Two of my siblings and both of my parents are here. There are two cats and one dog. We spend most of our time in the living room/ dining room area doing our slightly separate things together: reading, writing, working on the computer. The TV is off. My dad plays music. My mom cooks dinner. We talk to each other between thoughts. We go for walks. These are my people. I am blessed.
