Daily Draw - The Lovers, Queen of Wands, Three of Wands
The cards for today want to affirm for me that I have made the right choice, as the Lovers is often a card about choices, to pursue with passion and diligence, Queen of Wands, the idea that came to me for a creative project that wants to be born, Three of Wands. Just to be sure I understood what was being said, the Knight of Cups appeared at the bottom of the deck for my shuffle, to let me know that it's okay to dream, and dream big.
The Lovers cruise blithely through the air, entering the Queen's garden, where she is master of all that surrounds her, like that giant cat who could easily rip her to shreds, but she is fearless in confidence, which reminds me to go forth boldly and conquer what fears I may face, because that is the only way through them. The Three of Wands makes his third appearance for the week, and I believe he is here to say, "Yes, this is why I keep hanging around." plus to remind me to keep my other projects going as well. Dreams are we need to sustain our souls, the Knight of Cups counsels from the bottom, but this project is going to be a long one and may pay very well, but not for a long time, so better to keep my other things going as well, in tangent. All these Wands this week are telling me if I make the commitment to show up, I will be given the creative energy I need to complete these projects, which is deep reassurance indeed.
These cards are from the Paulina Tarot by Paulina Cassidy for U.S. Games Systems, Inc.
I am not a visual artist. The creators of the decks I use are. I try very hard to give proper credit to the artist when I use an image.
My most oft used deck on this blog is the Deviant Moon Tarot, created by Patrick Valenza and published by U.S. Games Systems, Incorporated. Check out his site to buy some fantastic Deviant Moon stuff, or a deck of your own!
A lovely, but digital only, Rider Waite Smith clone deck is the Aquatic by Andreas Schroter. You are allowed to downlaod and use the images.
They also make me tell you that readings are for entertainment purposes only. I'll tell you on my own that if you change your life based on a few cards something is not right there.
