Mercurial

Daily Draw: Akron Tarot ~ Queen of Wands

This translates to messenger of love, or love tamer depending on the website. She seems a bit frozen in place, her companion in the forefront and her horse are turning to twiggy creatures and the metamorphosis seems well on the way to happening to her. She isn't seeing, one eye is staring, the other more inwardly reflective. She seems caught or trapped in stasis, perhaps both by inattention and unrealistic expectations.

I'm reminded by this card real long term love isn't static. It's mercurial in nature with high and low times, fire and ice times, joy and grief times. It has to be actively tended; assuming it will be stable is to find it has receded and disappeared before our unseeing eyes.

"Here is my secret, a very simple secret; it is only with the heart that one can see rightly, what is essential is invisible to the eye." ~ Antoine de Saint-Exupery 1900-1944

  1. The artwork on these cards have taken me from being curious, to completely stumped, to downright intrigued. Look forward to seeing what the next unusual card is!

  2. They are all unusual, as are the keywords, which is why I took the time to translate them all. In this case they add to the fun rather than detract.
