What card am I?

May 8, 2009 § 4 Comments

Last night I came across this poem by Robert Frost in a book.

Can you guess which two tarot cards it made me think of?

  • Quiet says:

    Well, what card did the poem call up for you?

    It is quite subjective. I thought of Fool first but there are elements of disks and wands here as well.

    I thought 5 disks (the snow and keeping going no matter what) and 3 Wands (mainly because of a dream I had once).

    I love the association between poetry and tarot!

  • Liani Tarot says:

    I agree with ‘Quiet’ up above, and also love all associations with Tarot… music, paintings, poems, etc…

    I had to add though, wouldn’t the Tower energy be in there somewhere too?

    I would go Tower, then Fool…

    Oh! I forgot to reply to Quiet! Thanks for the prod Liana. 🙂

    Well, it’s been so long I had to go and read the poem again. For me, it made me think first of the Tower, especially this bit:

    “But just to ask us who we think we are
    Insisting always on our own way so.”

    A blow to the ego as it were. Then, the second half of the poem made me think of the Chariot:

    “And yet she knows obstruction is in vain:
    We will not be put off the final goal”

  • David says:

    Interesting takes! I thought first of the Wheel of Fortune with the Sphinx sitting on top the Wheel:

    “And yet she knows obstruction is in vain:
    We will not be put off the final goal”

    “Stop the World, I want to get off,” someone said, maybe Castenada and Don Juan. I want to get off the small circling I do to not avail. What obstructions I see as huge are really small in the scheme of things.
