Snowflakes and Leaves

Daily Draw: Margarete Petersen Tarot ~ 8 of Coins

We are told there are no two leaves or snowflakes alike. That seems difficult to believe until I think of the billions of humans and no two of us are made the same either.

I'm reminded by this card to avoid putting people in a pigeonhole. The fit will never be right, and I'd be doomed to putting them back again and again. Better to accept we don't all walk the same path to begin with. Our differences are what make life interesting.

"Like snowflakes, the human pattern is never cast twice. We are uncommonly and marvelously intricate in thought and action, our problems are most complex and, too often, silently borne." ~ Alice Childress 1916-1994

The deck this week is the English language/second edition of the Margarete Petersen Tarot, published 2004 by Konigs Furt, beautifully boxed and including a seventy-two page booklet. The cards were painted over a period of twenty-two years in Germany, Bavaria, and Switzerland. The suits are Coins, Cups, Flames, and Feathers. In print again by 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
