|Golden Dawn Magical Tarot, Llewellyn|
I can see where the Queen of Wands came into it, because I had to be quite assertive to get the gumption to ask for a second opinion and had to make the effort to go to the GP and convince them to refer me to this particular ENT even though he is outside their Primary Care Trust. I thought there would be resistance but there was not; I had the appointment within a few days. Of course that was weeks ago, I've been waiting about 6 weeks, but this is the NHS so that is not a terrible wait time, considering.
I think perhaps the Magician may be the ENT. He is considered to be quite good, and is in fact an ENT surgeon who specializes in particular kinds of surgery on the middle ear. Some key words associated with the Magician are skill, wisdom, craft, cunning, adaptation. The card seems to be well dignified by the presence of the Queen of Wands and the 9 of Cups. The Magician in this card even has a great big caduceus, a symbol of the medical profession. This is not to say I expect the ENT to perform miracles, but that he is certainly skilled at what he does. There is an element of the Magician as a trickster, as well, though not really represented in this particular card image, so I must guard against any false hope that may be fostered in me by his excellent reputation.
The main card of the draw is the 9 of Cups, because it is the first card I drew and it was actually intended to be the only card. The 9 of Cups represents nearly perfect happiness. It is a card of pleasure, happiness and good fortune. Complete success. I take this to mean that today's proceedings will go off without a hitch. I'm hoping that includes the train journeys there and back, finding the hospital, as well as what happens once I get there.
Here I go then!
