Motive, power, and action, arising from Inspiration and Impulse.
The Lovers represents intuition and inspiration. Very often a choice needs to be made.
Originally, this card was called just LOVE. And that's actually more apt than "Lovers." Love follows in this sequence of growth and maturity. And, coming after the Emperor, who is about control, it is a radical change in perspective. LOVE is a force that makes you choose and decide for reasons you often can't understand; it makes you surrender control to a higher power. And that is what this card is all about. Finding something or someone who is so much a part of yourself, so perfectly attuned to you and you to them, that you cannot, dare not resist. This card indicates that the you have or will come across a person, career, challenge or thing that you will fall in love with. You will know instinctively that you must have this, even if it means diverging from your chosen path. No matter the difficulties, without it you will never be complete.

There are kooks running around camp this week talking all about Enneagrams, and what type people are. Enneagrams are a personality type characterization, with 9 different types. So, at meals I keep hearing bits of "oh, he's a 7, so you can expect that..." and such. I finally took the time to take a sample quiz to find out what type I am, and afterwards I read all of the descriptions and realized that what it told me was spot-on.
Romantics have sensitive feelings and are warm and perceptive.
How to Get Along with Me
What I Like About Being a Four
What's Hard About Being a Four
Fours as Children Often
Fours as Parents
Several people have asked me about my religious beliefs. I decided it might be a refreshing change from my usual whining / ranting blogs, so I thought I'd share some of my history and details of my beliefs. As always, if ya don't wanna read it, stop now.
I was raised by a single mom. Since she worked full time, and they didn't really have latchkey childcare at the schools then, I spent a lot of time with a family nearby. They were Free Methodist. I only went to church with them once, but often stayed at their house on Wednesday evenings when my mom wanted to go out, so I went to their church youth group. Luckily, it wasn't terribly religious, because I'd learned early on that the rhetoric they were spewing didn't make sense. I learned the basics of their beliefs, and the one time I went to church was because I won an award for my essay on what Christmas was - the other kids had all talked about presents and Santa, but I was clever enough at the ripe old age of 8 or so to realize that it was the church asking for the essay, so I should write about Jesus. I had to go to the service so the pastor could present me with a bible - which I liked only because I could practice looking up passages so I could win more of the contests in the youth group :P
After I was old enough to watch myself, I stopped going to church. Except the occasional weekend when I'd stay with friends and go to their church Sunday morning just 'cuz. I knew the basics of what they believed, but still wasn't sure why people who were supposed to love others spawned so much hate at those who didn't believe what they did. Eventually, I learned that I mostly blamed organized religion because they perpetuated hate, especially in the middle east. That might've had something to do with the face that I was dating an arabic guy when the Kuwaiti attacks happened and Desert Storm started - and people would jeer at us.
Fast forward to my daughter being born in 2002. It got to be a big hassle to travel for holidays - hubby's father lives in WI and his mom is in IA. In the summer of 2003, his stepmom had a proposition for her sons and extended family - we all go to a Unitarian Universalist summer camp in Lake Geneva for a week. The reasoning being, they had plenty of room for us all, and we'd be able to spend all our time socializing with each other instead of cleaning and cooking and such. She offered to pay for all of us, in hopes that we'd enjoy the experience enough to come back every year.
The week was like nothing I'd ever experienced. So many people from so many walks of life, but all FRIENDLY. Bumperstickers proclaiming liberal beliefs, and often atheistic, littered the cars in the parking lots. Openly gay couples not afraid to hold hands in public, and nobody giving them dirty looks. In a word: acceptance. I came back from that camp with a new outlook on life. We returned the following year and I had a similar experience. At this point, I started asking my anti-religious husband if he would accept me finding a UU church and going. We tried to find one, but they tend to be closed for the summer while everyone's off doing their own thing. It took a few more years before we stuck it out long enough to go to one of our local UU churches. I walked in and immediately saw a coworker, and we were greeted with teh same kind of attitude we'd seen at camp - just a very welcoming and familial experience.
The beliefs of unitarian universalism range the gamut from wiccans to recovering catholics / lutherans to atheists. Personally I identify myself as agnostic because although I don't believe in a deity, I'm prepared to change my mind if someone can provide me with enough proof. The principles of the "religion" are based on acceptance, keeping an open mind, and being the best person we can be because we respect our fellow man, not because we're motivated by what may or may not happen when we die. And what really draws me there is religious education - they essentially teach the kids about all the major religions so that they can make an informed decision when they reach age of consent to join the church themselves.
I have lots more to say, but this is long-winded enough already :P Stay tuned for the next part, where I'll explain the 7 UU principles.

Your result for The Personality Defect Test...
You are 43% Rational, 14% Extroverted, 43% Brutal, and 29% Arrogant.
life is a spike / upon which i have impaled mysefl / fuck you dad
So, your personality is defective because you are too gentle, rather underconfident in yourself, decidely lacking in any rational thought, and also a bit too inhibited. Plus, your poetry really upsets your father.
I probably made you cry, didn't I? Fucking Emo Kid.
To put it less negatively:
1. You are more INTUITIVE than rational.
2. You are more INTROVERTED than extroverted.
3. You are more GENTLE than brutal.
4. You are more HUMBLE than arrogant.
Your exact opposite is the Smartass.
If you scored near fifty percent for a certain trait (42%-58%), you could very well go either way. For example, someone with 42% Extroversion is slightly leaning towards being an introvert, but is close enough to being an extrovert to be classified that way as well. Below is a list of the other personality types so that you can determine which other possible categories you may fill if you scored near fifty percent for certain traits.
The other personality types:
The Emo Kid: Intuitive, Introverted, Gentle, Humble.
The Starving Artist: Intuitive, Introverted, Gentle, Arrogant.

Be sure to take my Sublime Philosophical Crap Test if you are interested in taking a slightly more intellectual test that has just as many insane ramblings as this one does!
I am a self-proclaimed pseudo-intellectual who loves dashes. I enjoy science, philosophy, and fart jokes and water balloons, not necessarily in that order. I spend 95% of my time online, and the other 5% of my time in the bathroom, longing to get back on the computer. If, God forbid, you somehow find me amusing instead of crass and annoying, be sure to check out my blog and my webcomic at SaintGasoline.com.
