September Tarot Reading

For my tarot reading last night, I did a simple past, present, and future spread about creativity. I asked: What can I draw from my past, cultivate now, and develop in the future? I interpreted the spread to mean I have an abundance of talents and experience to draw from, the ability to hone and push these talents today, and the opportunity to deepen my practice, focus, and spiritual center. The world card, one of the best in the deck, I think, means this is a time of transformation, and I have access to the world of my creative talents to draw from to get me to the next stage of my journey. An image of the spread follows.

Space opera. It’s a real thing.

Space opera is a real subset of science fiction. According to sciencefiction.com, “Space opera is a genre of science fiction literature, and the term can also be applied to movies and TV programs. The genre has almost no relationship to the opera music form, except for the similarity of grand scope and dramatic intensity. Typically, space opera occurs on a galactic scale, has multiple types of spacecraft, from speedy corvettes to battleships capable of destroying planets. There is plenty of action and adventure in space opera.”

Well-known Space operas include Doctor Who, The Foundation series, and the Ancillary Justice series (which I just read and would highly recommend).
