I'm reminded by this card when we are happy we still work or reach for more. When we aren't we beg wish and pray for more. Sometimes we get to touch that tenth cup, mostly we don't. Maybe it's better that way, we need to reach.
"Without a wish, without a will,
I stood upon that silent hill
and stared into the sky until
my eyes were blind with stars,
and still, I stared into the sky." ~ Ralph Hodgson 1881-1962
Tarot opened previously closed doors to my own heart with it's merciless quest for the truth, nothing but the truth. They flay the soul and make me say thank you afterward. Each hour spent with my cards is a new lesson to be learned. Viva la Journey.
