Daily Draw - Seven of Wands, Knight of Swords, Ace of Cups

 Home- Seven of Wands:  This deck seems to speak in literal interpretations of the pictures at times.  This card reminds me of my moppets, and how much they love picnics.  It wouldn't take much to pack them up a picnic dinner and sit outside under a tree to eat it.  Sevens are often challenges, and this card is addressing the challenge I feel, to balance quality time with my kids, with the work I have to do, the work I want to do, and the chores and what have you that need to get done to keep our lives running smoothly.

Work- Knight of Swords:  This Knight is focused and driven, which are good qualities to have.  She should be careful, though, where she sticks that sword.  In this context, I feel like today is a good day to be sharp and focused, but to also be aware of the way I speak to others, and how I treat them, too.

Myself- Ace of Cups:  From the LWB, written by Barbara Moore, "A spot in your heart that was once empty is now filled.  When viewed through overflowing joy, nothing ever looks the same."  Beautiful.  It's a good day, well every one probably is, but especially today, to be aware of how blessed I am, because through being grateful we leave room for more blessings to come into our lives.  I've made no secret of the fact I would like to be in a good relationship, so of course these kinds of cards always cause a little hope surge.

The combination of these cards give me the feeling that when I am faced with choices today, I should choose the most loving and compassionate one, at each fork in the road.

These cards are from the Tarot of the Dream Enchantress by Marcco Nizzoli for lo Scarabeo.

  2. Hi, Cher! Thanks for stopping by the ol' blog, and for the compliment. Some days I think I should rename it to "78 Cosmic B***h Slaps Because You Just Don't Get It, Manda". :-)

    It was great to discover your blog, too!

  4. What a beautiful post. Love your writing, m'dear!

  5. p.s. you've had a few love cards come up lately, right? Hope things are going well there...

  6. after reading most of your posts, i read a your description and got a question, who can leave a women such as you are?

  7. I have been a neglectful blogger, Cher, Celeste, and Daniel. Please forgive :)

    The answer to your question, Daniel, is that it just wasn't right. I railed, and I cried, and I grieved until I was thoroughly wrung out, and I cursed the gods, him, and myself most of all. As much as I loved him, as much as he loved me, it just was not right for us, and the harder we struggled the tighter we bound ourselves to a bad outcome.

    Sometimes, love hurts.
