Dark Horse

Daily Draw: Paulina Tarot ~ Queen of Swords

This Queen appears cloaked in and surrounded by doomiest gloom. Her attendant creatures seem sly and sneaky and fully untrustworthy. This is me yesterday and there didn't seem to be anything I could do to shake it.

I'm reminded by this card to start earlier and work harder to prevent a duplicate of yesterday. I recognize that gloom, it comes riding the dark horse called depression.

"Out of damp and gloomy days, out of solitude, out of loveless words directed at us, conclusions grow up in us like fungus: one morning they are there, we know not how, and they gaze upon us, morose and gray. Woe to the thinker who is not the gardener but only the soil of the plants that grow in him." ~ Friedrich Nietzsche 1844-1900

This week's deck is Paulina Tarot, art by Paulina Cassidy, published 2008 U.S. Games Systems.

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
