Mysterious Musings
Madame Athame, CTPHD / ASAP / PDQ

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 fiancee and I are getting married in a couple of months here in Denver. All is running smoothly as far as preparations etc. Our question is really not too earth-shaking. For our honeymoon, we're going to her hometown, Bangor, Maine. Our only concern is what's the best way for us to get there - car or air? If we drive, we could save some money and get a better bed & breakfast. If we fly, it would be faster. We'd love to hear from you on this one.

Yours Truly,

Wayne Kerr

A: My dear Wayne,

Congratulations, honey! You sound like a sweet couple. So, you wanna know what's the best way to Bangor on your honeymoon. Let's see what the trusty Tarot tells us.

1) Advantages of driving to Bangor.

JUSTICE. You can spell each other off a bit on the driving - fair's fair! Also, there could be a cute traffic cop mind...

2) Disadvantages of driving there.

THE CHARIOT. The only car available to you is a clunker of a beast with an ancient motor. In order to keep the door shut, you'll have to chain it to a fence. Ugh!

3) Advantages of flying to Bangor.

6 OF SWORDS. You'll find a package deal that includes sailing on a yacht after you reach Bangor. Also, someone else is in charge of the steering - you can snooze, baby!

4) Disadvantages of flying there.

KNIGHT OF PENTACLES. Uh-oh. Flight delay. That plane will wait on the ground so long that they might as well taxi to Maine!

Whichever option you choose, my dear, may you get to Bangor in the most pleasant way possible.
