"dear John", will it ever get better than this?

The Three Fates spread is a popular way to gain insight into the past, present, and future. The William Blake Tarot explores the mystical vision and artistry of the renowned English painter and poet. It has long been the deck of choice for artists, writers, musicians, and thinkers.
Click for DetailsThe left card represents an important element of the past. Seven of Poetry (Boldness): "The times require that every one should speak out boldly: ...every man should do his duty, in Arts, as well as in Arms, or in the Senate". Standing up for yourself and your beliefs. Telling the truth despite everything. Tests of integrity, firmness, and commitment. Doing the right thing even though it hurts. Facing the envy or enmity of others. Proving yourself against rivals and competitors. Finding the courage to resist organized, institutional, or governmental oppression. In the creative process: Maintain your artistic tenacity and courage despite any criticism, disapproval, or influence of societal prejudices or market pressures. (I cannot replace this with my own interpretation, since I have no idea what this corresponds to in the regular Tarot - possibly 7 of Cups - which would explain why I get the feeling of his past paranoid "weirdness" persisting in his rants, and his very over-active imagination, to the point of paranoia, i.e. still not quite recovered, although apparently grounded and lucid?) ;-P
Click for DetailsThe middle card represents a deciding element of the present. Nine of Science (Swords) (Despair): Experiencing mental anguish or self-pity. Grief. Depression. Feeling isolated and alone ...not to mention damned frustrated when all he seems to want to do amounts to TALK!!! And our compatibility seems not in the intellectual sphere, but the purely physical, if anything ;-P
Click for DetailsThe right card represents a critical element of the future. Angel of Science: "Quis basin demonstret? (Who would demonstrate the foundation?)". Floating in the realm of pure or abstract thought. Objective, unemotional, and unbiased thinking. Mental speculation, exploration, meditation. A brilliant insight bursting through. Stimulus to organize or systematize. Precision and clarity of vision. In the creative process: An intellectual vision or perfect insight inspires you to rise above yourself. (I can get so over this, with the help of the Tarot, and my own intellectual integrity! I just refuse to let him make a fool of me any more, not to mention delay my precious phone call to B.E., which I did not feel up to last night! ;-P) ;-))

I'm not sure what to comment on this. At least it seems that the cards bode a happy ending.

Claire,

Rereading your updates to this tarot spread, I have the sudden feeling that I should add these comments to my original ones.

Are you aware that you are both judging John and projecting onto him ? By judging John as paranoid, you are in fact separating himn from yourself, which is validating the illusion of physical reality, and distancing you from the Infinite Field of Unconditional Love of which John is a part. Instead of doing so, consider praying that you are able to understand him, and that your relationship be healed for the highest good of both of you.

From our conversation with him, it seems you may be inclined to throw the baby out with the bathwater. However, what you do is entirely up to you. If you do feel that he needs help, then please pray for him.

More later,
Sebi
