Creeping Melancholia

Daily Draw: Lover's Path Tarot ~ 10 of Cups

After their rocky start in the 2 of Cups, things just kept going from bad to worse as Mark of Cornwall vented his wrath on Tristan and Isolde.

I'm reminded by this card it is easy to forgive if you are the last one standing, the only one arranging  memories. Here he has planted two trees to mark their graves and love for each other. All very lovely and 10 of cups-ish... but bodies that close to the bank will eventually go the way of the water. Was that his final insult? The couple drawing inspiration from the site need to move on, this space exudes a creeping melancholia.

"Hurt? He'll never be hurt; he's made to hurt other people." ~ George Eliot 1819-1880  Silas Marner


  1. The trees are beautiful, though, and everything gets washed away one day, anyway. Still, interesting thought that it was a final cruelty, rather than an act of acknowledgement and perhaps repentance...


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
