Boat Load Of Action

Daily Draw: Minchiate ~ Juggler/Magician

Taking action usually results in something happening. If you don't change the object of the action, you change yourself by the effort. Spinspeak?
Maybe, if you rely on someone else to act. Absolutely not if self propelled.

I'm reminded by this card the action seems to be happening between the Juggler and the child on the right. The center child interests me, he looks to be egging the action on, and pointing to his companion. "Yes please, give us a boat load of action, but on him in case he changes into a frog."

"Come come! Come out!
From bogs old frogs command the dark.
And look...the stars" ~Takarai Kikaku 1661-1707

Lo Scarabeo reprint of a 18th century Florence Italy Etruria Minchiate deck. Designed for gaming, there is no particular proscribed way of using them for divination or introspection. A deck of 97 images; 41 majors, 12 zodiac signs, 4 virtues, 4 elements, plus all the usual suspects in the minors and courts.


  1. I felt like the center child when I was just commenting on other people's blogs.More safe but missing out on writing posts myself

  2. Action and change always sounds good if you're sitting in the stadium seats and not on the playing field. :)


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
