The Daily Card
Oct. 3, 2014 – Seven of Disks
It’s an evening draw this time. I reached in my bag of tricks and pulled out The Tarot Sutra. These cards are for sure from my back-up card pile that I tapped into when my faves were stolen a while back. And somewhere along the way I ditched the corresponding book, which was perhaps some kind of western ceremonial sex magick thing? I don’t remember it, so it must not have been that entertaining. (Nor informative.)
But the real reason I don’t love this deck it that, while the images are simple and reminiscent of the Rider-Waite deck (which is sweet and reminds me of my very first deck – an oversized Rider-Waite that that belonged to my older sister), the phrase under the images distracts me from reading the card in an intuitive way.
That said, I like the card. The sense of work well done. The fruits of labor. A moment of rest. Evening time after a long day.
In this card I see the time of year again. The burgeoning harvest. The hard work that brings food and herb to those that need it. How our local economy ties us so strongly to the seasons.
We are an agrarian culture here in Mendocino County. We know that money does actually grow on trees. Well, plants anyway.
I jest. But not really.
So I take this moment and breathe in, taking a breath with everyone else in this region, preparing for the bustle that will descend upon us all any moment now.
Threshold of Change, indeed.
(On that note, I think I need to replace my Rider-Waite deck. )
