Daily Draw: Celtic Wisdom Tarot ~ 3 of Coins
In this card we see Amairgin making a promise to the three Goddesses of Ireland in return for a successful invasion. The accord was reached, the Mil's were successful, the Tuatha De Danann became the Sidhe, and Ireland's alternate name became Erie.
I see so many things wrong with this whole concept as to be gobstopped. The Tuatha De Danann weren't tin-pot dictators waving WMD's at the population. Why would the Goddesses acquiesce to the Mil's proposal? What this card really reminds me of is the phrase "God Bless America". The Creator I know is universal, where did the idea come from, and stick, that we would be singled out as oh so precious and special? I cringe from the potential lightening strike every time I hear the phrase.
Borders are scratched across the hearts of men
By strangers with a calm, judicial pen,
And when the borders bleed we watch with dread
The lines of ink across the map turn red." ~ Marya Mannes 1904-1990
