#tftwstarotchallenge Days 19 & 20
What archetype in the tarot most reminds you of yourself & why?
The Magician. Funny, because I drew this card the first time I ever had my tarot read, probably 6 or 7 years ago, maybe longer. I don't remember anything else from that reading, but the Magician is a card that I've since felt a kinship with. Especially in regards to writing, I've always felt like I possess the power to create anything my imagination can conceive. I get a certain thrill in translating ideas into written form & using words to create images in people's minds.
What archetype in the tarot challenges me the most & why?
The Devil. Residual shame from my Christian upbringing makes this archetype difficult for me to digest. I'm sensitive to being perceived as sinful & people interpreting my witchcraft as inherently evil. It's also hard for me to recognize my own limiting beliefs & behaviors & how they hold me back. I'm currently in the process of redefining what connection & companionship mean to me, & doing so has meant confronting the different ways I perpetuate shallow interactions as a means of "protection."
