Daily Draw: Royal Fez Moroccan Tarot ~ Ace of Wands
Ah, the 4th ace of the week, I am indeed going to be flipped into something new shortly. I haven't drawn this Ace since last December but it looks like an old friend with those emerging and self-thinned leaves.
I'm reminded by this card of gardens and new interests. In both cases you eventually find there is too much too soon and you begin to thin out the spindly shoots and the overly complicated. By experimenting you see what should be the focus, what needs some training, what needs pruned back. By taking your time to do it right you end with a cornucopia of fruit and vegetables, an avocation that will occupy and entertain for a life time. Don't be afraid to try something new, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
"It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power." ~ Alan Cohen
A 2nd edition 1975 U.S. Games Royal Fez Moroccan is the deck this week, published by AGMuller in Switzerland. This deck has a fascinating back-story. The 1st edition of 500 was the brain child of Roland Berrill, the founder of Mensa with art by Michael Hobdell. Mr Berrill died just after his deck was published in 1950 and it wasn't offered for distribution until many years later. If you see a deck with Rigel Press London on it snap it up! The second edition is nearly as hard to get as it rarely surfaces on the secondary market.
