Next Appearance: October 5th, 2008

For out next session, I’m thinking about doing something with the Tarot court cards, to divine which members of the “royal family” are “in residence” in different peoples’ lives on this occasion. Although a person may have a certain court card that he or she regularly uses as a Significator, as modern people, we have so many sub-personalities, out of our need to wear many hats and be many things to many people, that we probably act out all 16 court card personalities at different times.

The idea of seeing which personalities are “in residence” is based on the historical practice of kings, queens, and other members of the royal family to make royal progresses, visiting all of their castles, as well as the homes of other members of the nobility. Even today, Queen Elizabeth spends different parts of the year at Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle, Balmoral, Holyrood House, etc. Whenever she stays at a different place, they fly her standard to show that she is “in residence.”

Other activities planned for October 5th may focus on “enchanting the brain” as a form of spell breaking, and will include the dark chocolate induction. (Even if you’ve been through it before, it can't hurt to reinforce your ability to invoke the awesome magical powers of dark chocolate.)

Also, because there are still some defiant ragweed plants out there that have not yet succumbed to the rain or the cold nights, I’m thinking about a ragweed immunity spell for those who may need it.
