Story - I come upon a woman seated upon a throne she has a crescent moon above her head, she holds scrolls of arcane information in her hands. Amazingly she tells me the most intimate secrets of my own life, 'How do you know this about me' I ask, she replies 'I use my intuition and listen quietly to my inner voice'. She teaches me to meditate and to open myself up to these new ideas in my head. She tells me that I will have many important choices to make. Behind her are 2 pillars between which hangs a curtain she tells me that if I want to learn more I must go beyond this veil and continue my journey.
