|Ghosts & Spirits Tarot- Nine of Cups|
This card is based on the story "On The Back Of The North Wind", which you can read in its' entirety here, a story about a boy who got exactly what he wanted (and then he died, but this is the Ghost & Spirit Tarot). I am lucky, blessed, and have earned, in part, a life that is exactly what I want- an amazing marriage, children who are smart, articulate, well spoken, talented, passionate, and creative, a home I can care for and arrange just the way I want, time to cook, time to write, tarot to stimulate all my senses, and really, I am just happy. I wish the baby mama drama would end, more for my sweet sons' sake than my own, and more money could be put to judicious use, but by and large this is a happy life, and exactly what I wanted.
One thing Diamond, the boy from the story, and I have I common, is we both knew what we wanted. I didn't know how I was going to get this husband and this business and grow these kids up right, but I knew those were my priorities. And even more than that, being me, the most authentically possible me there could be, because in my mind, that is where the secret lies.
