Three card pull

So, when I said I had a bunch of Tarot decks, I lied. I have a number of different kinds of divination decks though. So I did a three card pull. Ace of Pentacles from the _Circle of Life_ tarot; number lll Flexibility within structure from the Fertility & creativity section of _Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom_ deck; and Inanna from the _Goddesses_ knowledge cards.

The book with the tarot sucks, so here is the description from a web site for the Ace of Pentacles:  http://www.learntarot.com/pa.htm

WBWW pull: Although you may be the original "parent" of your creation, you need to let others assist you in giving birth to it and raising it. Be flexible. Allow other people, places, and events to help structure your creations.

Inanna description: Inanna is the ancient Sumerian mother Goddess. Both the protector of grain and the queen of heaven, she combines earth and sky. Powerful, self-sufficient, passionate, and many-sided, she is a fertility goddess as well as the source of earth's wells, springs, and rivers. Each year Inannna descends to the underworld to resurrect her consort, Dumuzi. At each of the seven gates she leaves one of her garments behind until, naked, she meets her sister, Erishkigal, queen of the underworld. Erishkigal kills Inanna and hangs her on a hook until Inanna herself is resurrected and returns to life. Inanna is a representative of the many facets that go into being feminine as well as guide into the dark places of psychological and spiritual death and disintegration. <---- This seems to skip over the war goddess aspect. Hhmmm ...
