I get the strangest requests. Some I can write about.
‘You’re a Marseille specialist, right?’
‘Because I’m not sure that the Marseille is suitable for my question.’
‘What’s the question?’
‘How can I kill the competition?’
‘Ah, well, since you put it that way, let’s see.’
Elisabetta Cassari’s Soleone Tarot (1983) gets on the table.
‘Wow, that’s… red.’
‘Yeah, your loss.’
‘What do you mean?’
‘First you gamble, then you lose, and then, when the time is right, you collect by killing it indiscriminately.’
‘Whoa!.. Wait, what do you mean, kill it indiscriminately?’
‘Well, think. You want to kill your competition. Death comes in the last position, after some money cards suggest a decrease from 7 to 6. Loss. For you. Not good. When Death comes do you think it haggles? Do you think it sits there whining about what the competition does and what you don’t? Do you think it cares about how what the competition does fills you with resentment and envy? It doesn’t. When Death comes it collects all the souls, the winners and the losers. You must do the same. Embody that power. You can only kill your competition by killing it in every possible way. The best kill is to do your thing and not worry about what other folks have or have not on their tables. Arm yourself with your sack and kill risk, kill loss, kill money. You can’t make money if you’re worried about money. Get on with the detachment program.’
‘That sounds advanced.’
‘Really? Try believing that this or that is better, or bigger, or less, or more, or black, or white. Aren’t you listening to what I’m saying? When Death comes it doesn’t discriminate. And you know why? Because it doesn’t exist. That’s advanced. But we can wait with that part for when you’re ready.’
