Tend The Roots

Daily Draw: Grand Etteilla Tarot ~ 7 of Coins

Due diligence required. We had the nicest garden this year, everything has produced prodigiously and it was pretty also, with both of us here to feed and weed.

I'm reminded by this card we've had our first storm of the season and today our garden is flat on the ground and north bound. Under the strong growth are the fragile stems and roots of annual crops. Easy to forget when the tops in our life look and feel so vibrant.

"So you think that money is the root of all evil. Have you ever asked what is the root of all money?" ~ Ayn Rand quotes 1905-1982

Grand Etteilla dates back to the late 1700's and is based on the idea that tarot came out of Egypt with Gypsies. It was also the first deck designed for esoteric purposes, prior to that tarot was used for gaming. A beautiful deck, meant to be used both upright and reversed. This is the 1977 edition published by Grimaud France.
