Fair point. I daren't start a new thread this week, though! I'm not even posting the new Lenormand question I just wrote, until tomorrow, so as to pace my interaction with AT!

This = me with the Kabbala.

Yes, that's the thing. Solar plexus n all that. Hm...

At least I'm only worrying about days (or is it weeks already) since I discovered this thread!

Well, if that's supposed to use seven years per Age, the "second childishness and mere oblivion, sans teeth" etc would be at the age of 42 to 49. I trust Shakespeare didn't mean it like that, I know the average lifespan was shorter but surely not!

However, I feel an arithmetic moment coming upon me... I wonder if there's any way of combining them (your system and the Seven Ages). Hm, againly.

One thing that this "seven stations" perspective seems to be doing for you guys is, as it did for me, it leads to examining our own lives with fresh eyes in the context of esoteric traditions, as tarot at its best seems to do whatever your perspective.
Yep!

I was diagnosed with Type 1 a month before I turned seven, that's why I knew this statistic. I think it's more random with Type 2. But auto-immune things are so closely bound up with the spiritual body (chakras, yep) and life-thread stuff... hm, thirdly.
