The Hanged Kitty?

I sure hope this isn't literal:


You are the Hanged Man


Self-sacrifice, Sacrifice, Devotion, Bound.


With the Hanged man there is often a sense of fatalism, waiting for something to happen. Or a fear of
loss from a situation, rather than gain.


The Hanged Man is perhaps the most fascinating card in the deck. It reflects the story of Odin who offered himself as a sacrifice in order to gain knowledge. Hanging from the world tree, wounded by a spear, given no bread or mead, he hung for nine days. On the last day, he saw on the ground runes that had fallen from the tree, understood their meaning, and, coming down, scooped them up for his own. All knowledge is to be found in these runes.


The Hanged Man, in similar fashion, is a card about suspension, not life or death. It signifies selflessness, sacrifice and prophecy. You make yourself vulnerable and in doing so, gain illumination. You see the world differently, with almost mystical insights.

I am the High Priestess! BOW TO ME! hehe Just Kiddin'!! This was a pretty neat thing!


You are The High Priestess
Science, Wisdom, Knowledge, Education.

The High Priestess is the card of knowledge, instinctual, supernatural, secret knowledge. She holds scrolls of arcane information that she might, or might not reveal to you. The moon crown on her head as well as the crescent by her foot indicates her willingness to illuminate what you otherwise might not see, reveal the secrets you need to know. The High Priestess is also associated with the moon however and can also indicate change or fluxuation, particularily when it comes to your moods.

Uh-oh! It said I was the "Devil." But it continued on to say that wasn't a bad thing. I think my passions are unbridled or something.

This is Lux's Mom (pretty cool test):

You are The Empress

Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation.

The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents, beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.

The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love. Even so, the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, then sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can, in anger withhold, as Demeter did when her daughter, Persephone, was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.

Well, there is a cat on the card, so maybe that's why it came up for you?

I'll have to go and take the test and see what I get.

I got the Magician.

"Skill, wisdom, adaptation. Craft, cunning, depending on dignity. Eloquent and charismatic both verbally and in writing, you are clever, witty, inventive and persuasive."

Yup, that's me!!

"The Magician is the male power of creation, creation by willpower and desire. In that ancient sense, it is the ability to make things so just by speaking them aloud. "

I Meow and I get what I want!

I am the Tower. Fear me. I bring chaos and destruction in my wake. This is very confusing to me, as I regard myself as a rather kind person.

I discovered the test on Dragonheart's blog and thought I have to do it to (I am a curious person) and what came out ? Quite the truth ! I am an Empress just like Mar ! Actually I don't believe in these things, but I always like to make the tests, just to see what comes out and yes, sometimes it's quite true !
