Daily Draw - Queen of Pentacles, The Magician, The Tower

Now we move on to the Paulina Tarot, charmingly wrought by Paulina Cassidy, and brought to us by U.S. Games Systems, Inc.

The Queen of Pentacles is usually me, so I am glad to see her hanging around today.  The Magician, that can be me, too.  The Queen glances over rather conspiratorially at the Magician, who has her back turned away from the calamity of the Tower.  Those first two cards have something up their sleeves, and they want nothing to do with the third card, the Tower.  Which, coincidentally, neither do I.

I believe these cards are a warning to me today, which is if I do not want to encounter any Tower moments I would wisely emulate the responsible and earthy Queen of Pentacles.  I will deal with my housework before playing, and get everything set up for Monday morning kids' things to do.  The Magician is the great intercessory between the worlds, and works with all the elements, so if for some reason I am not able to avoid any Tower moments through diligence and care, I should be able to assimilate them through my own belief in my ability to so, which is actually a quite empowering thought.  The Magician, le Bateleur in the more tricksy Marseilles incarnation, has an air of getting something over on someone, almost as if I play my cards right, proscribe the "proper" household rituals, I can avoid the upheaval of the Tower.  I may just leaave out a bowl of milk for any faeries hovering about today.

Update:  I know what these cards wanted to tell me now.  When I let myself, the Queen of Pentacles, lose my self confidence, signified by the Magician, I have a lot of upheaval in my sense of security, shown by the Tower.  I did it right, though, by being able to recognize what was going on pretty quickly and changing my words, which changed my mindset before a total collapse came, so I am beyond grateful for the heads up from my cards.
