|What the father hath hid cometh out in the son; and oft have I found in the son the father's revealed secret. Inspired ones they resemble: but it is not the heart that inspireth them- but vengeance. And when they become subtle and cold, it is not spirit, but envy, that maketh them so. Their jealousy leadeth them also into thinkers' paths; and this is the sign of their jealousy- they always go too far: so that their fatigue hath at last to go to sleep on the snow.|
"I've lost it! Can I get it back?"
"Your father always wanted you to be something better. You're fickle. You don't know what has value or what makes sense. When your first love left , hope went with it. From time immemorial it has been the simplest thing for you to think of your father and only want to please him. Here is the Emperor - he is in front of you. There is the Magician - he is behind you. Below you - the two of Wands...it strengthens your will. Above you there is the nine of Cups...your dream of happiness. To your question: The seven of Swords - you yourself, uselessness, and the policy of reconciliation and compromise. The Tower- collapse, see the breakdown of your ideas of the world. The ten of swords- your fear: ruin. The answer: the Hanged man- it is a symbol of water, deliverance through fantasy. See to it...!"
