Daily Draw: Grand Etteilla Tarot ~ Knight of Wands
Titled Change and Separation, this lovely image brought on the nine thousandth freshet of tears; for my mother and sister are moving inexorably beyond my reach and care.
I'm reminded by this card of both their lives, their dreams and pastimes and hard work all behind them now. Looking at the past is what remains, so we revisit it, and laugh a little bit, and then cry some more.
"And this mess is so big
and so deep and so tall,
We cannot pick it up.
There is no way at all!" ~ Dr. Seuss 1904-1991 The Cat in the Hat
The cards open previously closed doors to my own heart with their 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.
