Dan Pelletier and A Musing

September 12th, 2011 § 0 comments

It might normally seem odd that a finance guy would transform into a Tarot guru, but given the situation, it’s not that strange.

Dan Pelletier, one of the new co-hosts on Beyonds Worlds, author of The Process, and owner of the Tarot Garden, was one of the survivors of the September 11 attacks.

That morning, while training for a new job with Morgan Stanley on the 61st floor of the World Trade Center, he decided to go down for a cigarette.

It was a decision that saved his life, and of course, altered its course forever. Among other changes, Pelletier left finance and eventually took up Tarot full time.

I was lucky enough to see him at BATS last month. And though I bought too many decks from him, I had the good fortune to see his performance in a skit called A Musing.

With Rhonda Lund and Nancy Antenucci, he acted out a typical Tarot reading with him as reader, Lund as querent, and Antenucci as the psychic muse informing the consultation.

Like Pelletier himself, the play was funny, but inspirational as well.

Messages included reminders to ‘live like you’re dying,’ and that ‘you need a love affair with your life.’ There were questions like ‘when was the last time you danced with a stranger?’ and ‘what prime are you in now?’

Tarot readings often bring ideas like this to the surface, but within the context of Pelletier’s personal story they become even more powerful.

I mourn the incredible losses suffered on September 11th, 2001, but thank the universe for allowing hope to grow out of the darkness.

As the psychic muse in A Musing said ‘Love Doesn’t Die’. We should all try to remember that, and celebrate each moment as it arrives.
