Hidden Opportunity!

Hope your week's been going well; just got back from vacation last night! I've got about a zillion things to do today -- answering emails, running errands, doctor's visit, etc -- shouldn't vacations come in pairs? One to relax, then another to rest after you do all the catchup work that piled up while you were relaxing!

Toronto was wonderful -- not too cold and it only rained one day. I'm still trying to decide if I liked "Lord of the Rings -- The Musical" or not. The set design was incredible; most of the songs and the one dance number were enjoyable. The way they portrayed the Balrog was incredible -- way better than the movie!

An understudy played Aragorn and he kept forgetting or messing up his lines -- but that wasn't too distracting. The only knock is an expected one -- it's really tough to do an epic travelling story on a small stage. They did about as good a job as could be expected.

I was pleased to see they kept the book's ending -- which was missing from the book. Unfortunatly, they decided to do a "peace" message. No problem with peaceful endings -- when they're appropriate. However, when the Hobbits are facing Sharkey (Saruman) after he's taken over the Shire and he says "What are you Hobbits going to do about it?!", the book had it right -- the Hobbits fought (because they had learned during their journeys that appeasement doesn't always work -- remember, this story was conceived and written after the failed appeasement policies of the British towards Adolph Hitler). The play did a "Why don't we just be friends instead?" that was completely unbelievable and ruined the whole point of the story -- the Hobbits DID learn and change because of their travils. Saying "Why don't we just be friends" is what they would have said before the adventure -- not after the adventure. Rather than coming from the book, "The Lord of the Rings", the ending was what you might expect from "Barney the Dinosaur"!

So -- a politically correct, but unsatisfying, ending. Still, at least they replaced the ending the movie left out.

Niagra Falls was fun -- no crowd at all since we were off-season. I had always pictured the Falls as being at the end of an escarpement. I didn't realize that's how the falls began thousands or millions of years ago -- but that they've since eroded and created a many miles long gorge! So -- you have the top of the escarpement, a river flowing across it, the falls when the river empties into a gorge, then many miles of river bottom gorge, and then you finally come to the end of the escarpement.

How about some quick words from my sponsors, then on to the reading!

We'll again pull two cards -- the first suggests something we should focus on for the week. The second suggests things we might consider in order to fully benefit from the attributes of the first card.

The cards are:

The Moon (Reversed)

Ten of Pentacles

The Moon is one of those cards who's meanings can be intuited from the real thing. Look at things under the moonlight -- and they'll look very different than they do during daylight. Thus, The Moon might suggest that things may not really be as they appear -- or it could suggest that it's very difficult to figure out what the true picture is. I generally see the Moon as suggesting a confusing situation -- one that's difficult to evaluate, one that's full of things that might be misinterpreted.

Reversals usually suggest some type of distortion -- but in this case I think it represents a warning. We should be wary of misinterpreting a confusing situation. We may be tempted to key on certain facts that seem significant at first, but really keep us from seeing the true matter.

I see our second card -- The Ten of Pentacles -- as suggesting the reward awaiting us IF we can avoid the misleading temptations of the reversed Moon in order to see the true opportunity. Isn't there a saying that's something like "Look for opporunity in adversity". We may find ourselves facing a confusing and Moon-like situation, but if we work our way through to see the key matters underneath, we may find opportunities that will benefit us!

And that's about it this week; I look forward to seeing you again next week. As always, if you're interested in a private reading, please try my sponsors above or my list of readers at . I also welcome your comments at !
