one more for the road

Great. I don't even know what a hierophant is (except for what this says -- the Pope? Ewwww!), and this guy is kind of creepy looking. That figures, huh? And am I the only one who sees something, er, inappropriate about those columns?
The Hierophant Card
You are the the Hierophant card. The Hierophant,
called The Pope in some decks, is the preserver
of cultural traditions. After entering The
Emperor's society, The Hierophant teaches us
its wisdom. The Hierophant learns and teaches
our cultural traditions. The discoveries our
ancestors have made influence the present.
Without forces such as The Hierophant who are
able to interpret and communicate traditional
lore, each generation would have to begin to
learn anew. As a force that is concentrated on
our past and our culture, The Hierophant can
sometimes be stubborn and set in his ways. This
is a negative trait he shares with his zodiac
sign, Taurus. But like Taurus he is productive.
His traditional lore can provide a source of
inspiration for the creatively inclined, and
his knowledge provides an excellent foundation
for those who come into their own in the
business world. Image from: Morgan E.

Which Tarot Card Are You?
brought to you by Quizilla


I'm pretty much packed except for the last-minute stuff. In a little bit I'll shut down the laptop and stow it in its bag. Just have to do the last of the housecleaning (i.e. move the piles of laundry and other crap from the living room to on top of the bed and shut the bedroom door, mostly), take out the garbage, stuff like that. This is kind of pathetic, but I'm really going to miss my cats this week. Yes, I'm one of those middle-aged women.

Oh well -- time to stop procrastinating. Two and a half hours from now I gotta be on the road. Ciao!


EDIT: OK. If I change one of my answers, I get this, which I like much better:
The Justice Card
You are the Justice card. Justice preserves the
harmony of the world. Working with opposite
forces, Justice does not seek to criticize or
condemn but rather to accept. The idea behind
the card justice is that opposite forces are
complementary; you could not have good without
evil or light without darkness. Justice's
position is to make sure that if a thing is out
of balance, the weight of its energy is
realigned with its opposite force. This card is
also a card of humour, for it is in pointing
out contrary positions that humour is often
found. The attitude that is found in the
humourous person, being able to shift
perspective and flow with an instinct, is
important in the maintenance of good balance.

Garbo: Better the Devil than the stinkin' Pope, in my book! (Sorry, Pamela.) I put all the "learning" answers for mine and that's when I got the Pope. When I picked "balance" instead of "learning" I got the better one. Phbt.
