Ann’s Fashion Tarot, Crimson Edition: The Wheel of Fortune.

The Wheel of Fortune says you’ll stick the landing because you have to.

10 the wheel of fortune

Back to Abby.


Abby, bangs, spring 2019. Don’t know if she likes this photo but I love it and I am the boss of this blog. 

I cannot tell you how thrilling it is, or maybe you know this, how thrilling it is to watch younger persons make decisions. They get into their twenties or thirties and they’ve had some times, some trials, and by now they’re decisive but the decisiveness is only a few layers deep. They’re out there deciding things — jobs, love, wardrobe, bangs — and when they talk about it they look at you with this seeking look. The trick is, the fun is, looking back with rock-solid reassurance which 1) reassures, 2) also says, yeah well, you don’t reeeeally know, do you. You have no pre-paved assurance that this is going to work. So you simply have to make it work. You have to make it work, and you will. This is what it was to watch Abby’s 100-drawings-a-day and then read her journalings and hand that all back to her. Not like I spoke the words “you will make all of this work,” but I mean, if you make a tarot deck out of somebody’s drawings I think that’s what you’re saying. Or, different example, maybe you entrust a younger person with the burial of an actual part of your self. Same same same. The thrill of standing back.

The Wheel of Fortune says, congratulations, you have decided to make a thing work and that’s actually the only way to know you made the right move. Stick the landing even if the jump was not exactly how you planned. Stick it and don’t look back and guess what, it was exactly perfectly the right time, the right distance, everything.
