Erotic Thoughts Spread
On This Day
Nin was a friend—in some cases, lover—of many literary figures, including Henry Miller, John Steinbeck,
and Gore Vidal.
Anaïs Nin, writer and diarist, was born on this day in 1903. Beginning her literary career in Paris, she moved to New York in the 1940s. Hailed as one of the finest writers of female erotica, she was one of the first women to fully explore the realm of erotic writing.
Summation of Spread
The Star card is about being completely at ease in one’s body and with one’s sensuality. The Star depicts vulnerability, allowing the body to be in an open and receptive state. Here we can discover new and uncharted pleasures.
Eroticism is not simply the physical act of sex; rather, it is the arousal and anticipation of sex and sensuality. A pleasurable and subtle activity that is often overlooked, eroticism can last for hours, days, and months, while the sex act itself occurs in a relatively short period of time. Nin’s spirit inspires this spread.
