NIne of Cups – R Queen of Pentacles The Wheel – The Twelve Dancing Princesses
Rider-Waite SHadowscapes The Fairy Tale Tarot
Disappointment and thoughts of rampant greed are the emotional forecast of the day. You may feel discouraged by things you cannot control, other’s actions against you or people you care for, restrictions, over-indulgences, or otherwise feeling like happiness is a struggle. Take any meds or supplements you need to function, practice some self-care if necessary, but know that happiness is a choice; You can either see the good things still in this world, or get bogged down by the bad. This could also be indicative of relying on outside influence to bring happiness, and finding it lacking.
The Queen of Pentacles (first time I’ve drawn that card in this deck) and the Wheel of Fortune offer us a generous reminder that these days of deprivation aren’t going to last forever. The Wheel backs this up; fortunes come and go in the cycles of creation and destruction. And unless things get shaken up once in a while, they will stay as they were and get neither better nor worse. The Queen holds the symbol of creation and strength in her hands; an oak leaf from the shining boughs overhead. She and her maidens are ready and willing to take us under the shelter of those branches so we may find the beauty still in this world. Take some time out in nature and find a friendly tree to lean against. Ask the tree to share some of it’s strength and resilience with you as we weather the storms of Human Life. The trees have seen it all and they know these things too shall pass.
