Make Our Choices

Daily Draw: Llewellyn Tarot ~ Hanged Man

Pryderi entered a castle that wasn't his, then reached for a hanging golden bowl that was none of his business. And was paralyzed, stuck hanging from it for seven years, along with his mother Rhiannon who rushed in thinking she could fix the situation.

I'm reminded by this card most of us would willing take a punishment rather than have it fall on a loved one. Life seldom gives us that option though, we make our choices and live with the consequences. Or consequences are thrust upon us when we had no choice at all.

"Our lives are fashioned by our choices. First we make our choices. Then our choices make us." ~Anne Frank 1929-1945

2006 Llewellyn Tarot. Commissioned art and 264 page companion book by Anna-Marie Ferguson. Published by Llewellyn Worldwide as part of their celebration of the life of Welshman Llewellyn George, the founder. The majors follow the story line of the Welsh Mabinogion.

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
