Mysterious Musings

Madame Athame is a mysterious will-o-the-wisp who offers tongue-in-cheek readings that are meant to be taken as such. They are by no means a lesson in how to read the tarot for real clients.

Warning: If you are humor-impaired, the Reiki Master General strongly advises you not to read Madame Athame's column.


Q: Dear Madame Athame,

My fiance and I are to be married in three months. Many of our friends are single, so we'd like to use our wedding reception to introduce people to one another - a sort of mass blind date. Do you think that people will enjoy this? Will our little mix and match plan work on anyone? Thanks in advance.

Muffie Blythwood

A: Dear Muffie (whatever),

Your little scheme sounds like fun! Nothing like parading your own wedding in front of pals to infect them with the ol' love bug. By the way, what's your beau's name - Biff? Chad? Steele? Let's see how the matchmaking idea looks in the cards.

1) How will Muffie's friends respond to this matchmaking plan?


Uh-oh. Your friends seem a bit cheesed off by the whole thing, dearie. They'll see through your plan like a wedding night teddie, then run shrieking from their prospective matches.

2) How will the fiance's friends respond to this matchmaking plan?


His friends are only interested in one-night stands, sweetie - a little slap 'n' tickle after the wedding cake.

3) What's an alternate plan for Muffie and her beloved's wedding reception?


Have your guests play "juggle the dinner plates". The last two people left juggling have to smooch. An entertaining way to meet new people and to rid yourself of all that unwanted nuptial china.

Good luck,

Madame Athame
