Daily Draw: Runic Tarot ~ Language
Os is a major in this deck, but seems a sister card to yesterday's cerebral Analysis card. Because it doesn't matter what our IQ is, how we communicate determines what impression people have of us. I'm not much of a talker in real life and I'd rather take a poke in the eye with a sharp stick than use the telephone, so I've often been judged as aloof, stand-offish, snooty, taciturn, stoic...but I make up for it in the virtual world of computers. A friend said I was not talkative but typative.
I'm reminded by this card that there are words and then there are words. To use language to communicate with others, and to express myself here, but to keep my face and heart to the light and maintain a positive and useful position. Quality and quantity are two completely different things, if we have nothing to communicate, be still and listen.
"Drawing on my fine command of the English language, I said nothing."
