Turned 57 yesterday. (Doesn't sound too bad does it? It was a good year for Chevy's...)
Did my birthday Tarot reading for the year ahead with a new deck of cards that I purchased to go in my new pouch sent to me from my sister, Sweet Sue, in CA. My card for the year ahead is the Nine of Cups. A traditional meaning for this card is, "You'll get your wish." Nice. I'll take that...
Then, what I most need to look at, is The Sun. (Boy, I couldn't agree more, after this long Maine winter! I am vitamin D deprived!) But, not so literally, The Sun speaks about Jung's Bright Shadow - our unrealized potentials. So, yes I will look at this.
And the challenge in what lies ahead is, the Knight of Cups. Hmmmm....how I read this is, to keep using my feelings and intuition, especially in my art, and keep carrying them forward - and stay on that horse and don't fall off!
Next, what will help, is the Three of Swords. Three. My triptychs. The best vehicle to express these emotions, the painful and the sweet.
And the last card, what I might be overlooking, is the Ten of Pentacles. This is a card of abundance, contentment, achievment, and a happy home. A reminder, perhaps, to count my blessings, and not take these things for granted!
Happy Saint Patty's Day, All!
