Death - or is it?


Deprecated: preg_replace(): The /e modifier is deprecated, use preg_replace_callback instead in /home/content/79/3950979/html/tarot/components/com_mojo/wp-includes/functions-formatting.php on line 76

My sister and I had an interesting conversation about Deep Purple’s song Smoke on the Water. She has always seen it as The Tower - a destruction in life that happens in order to make way for new events. I completely see that, and find it valid. But I have the card as Death - transition or change from the old into the new.

Both visions work - and the song can work for either card.

This is what makes 4Tunes exciting to me. I don’t want my card picks to be the absolute answer - but instead, the start of a discussion.

In my mind, what tips the scales of this particular song is the music. It *feels* like a Death card, rather than a Tower card. Which is a little unfair, as it means that my emotional response to the song over rides her thoughtful choice!

Judgement

Ever since I started this 4Tunes “obsession,” I listen to music with a new ear. I try to understand the lyrics, the meaning, so much more thoroughly than I ever did before. Before, if I couldn’t understand what a song meant, I didn’t care. No longer. Google is my friend, and so are all of the people out there who love music. They have taken the time to write down lyrics and thoughts about the music they hear. I am very appreciative of all the music fans out there, and I hope that this new dimension into music enjoyment will enrich their lives as much as it has enriched mine.

Ace of Wands

Here we begin!

Ace of Wands is a card of creation, of beginnings. Often known as a pregnancy card. Bringing 4TunesTarot to life has been like being pregnant - for 2 years! (not that I have had a real-life correlation to this analogy yet). So I am very excited (and proud!) to bring to life the site and ideas behind it.

So - here it begins! May it live a long and healthy life.


8 of Cups


Deprecated: preg_replace(): The /e modifier is deprecated, use preg_replace_callback instead in /home/content/79/3950979/html/tarot/components/com_mojo/wp-includes/functions-formatting.php on line 76

Hello! I’m Justine, creator of 4Tunes. In March of 2005, I had the epiphany that the songs I love can represent the Tarot cards I use. So I thought I’d start this off by mentioning the first song to undergo this revelation:

“I Ran (So Far Away)” by A Flock Of Seagulls - which became the 8 of Cups.

The card is represented by a man leaving behind eight cups to follow the moon. I’ve always read this as the abandonment of the past (for good or ill) to follow a new path. It takes courage to do this, to leave all everything known, comfortable and familiar, and go for the unknown. Many times people resist this action for fear of what will happen and/or other people’s reactions. The song “I Ran (So Far Away)” is about this struggle - to move toward something possible, something great, or to run away from it. The singer talks about the woman he meets - how she’s more than he could ever hope for:

“I walk along the avenue/I never thought I’d meet a girl like you/Meet a girl like you”

And he is afraid of all of the potential, of what the relationship could mean. So he runs - but eventually, he realizes that running won’t get him away. So even if you run from your problems, it’s not often the solution. And as we move away from things that hurt us, we find we often carry the burdens and pains with us, as well - so we don’t truly escape. We even get so confused with our emotions that we run away from the good things, too.


The thing to realize is that the running IS happening - whether or not it is smart,
or successful, is not relevent to this card itself. So - even if he can’t “get away”
the act of trying - and running - is there.

Now, even the band A Flock of Seagulls must be tired of this song - I assume that’s true for most one-hit-wonders (not casting aspersions on the band, it’s just what they’re best known for here in the States) - but they also can’t “run away” from this song, regardless of whether or not they want to. And I am pleased by that delicious irony.

The Fool

The Fool

The Fool is one of my favorite cards. It’s the first card (technically the Zero card) of the Tarot deck, and many people give it negative connotations. Nobody wants to be thought of as a “Fool” - which means I have to do some quick talking when it comes up in a reading – especially if it represents the person I’m reading to!
The image of the card has a young person with a bundle of possessions walking carelessly off a cliff, a happy dog nipping at their feet.
Many of life’s choices and adventures are like that – if you don’t watch where you are going, then there is every possibility of falling on your face. Yet it takes strength and courage to walk forward – no matter the obstacle in front of you. I’d rather trip and fall than stay still and have nothing happen. Because life is all about that adventure – either the learned lessons from falling, and tripping, or the possible wonderfulness at the bottom of that fall.
My 80’s Deck has the song “What I Am” from Edie Brickell. I love the innocence of the song, putting in mind of the carefree youth, and also the message -

” What I am is what I am.
Are you what you are - or what?”

I am who I am, and I that’s who I try and be. What about you?

And that is a good representation of what the card really means to me. Regardless of whether or not anyone understands your motivations nor your actions, you still go forward, believing in yourself and your path.
And that’s why I like the Fool card. It’s a great start to the deck, and opens up great horizons, while still showing you that you are you, with all the possibility of greatness and all the difficulty that living brings us all.
