Particulates

Daily Draw: Green Witch Tarot ~ Ace of Wands

Cherries for creativity, wren for activation. Reversed it could mean stagnation and blockage.

I'm reminded by the background sky, sunrise and sunset colors are richer the dirtier the air. Which led me to Pompeii, what creates more particulates than a volcano? A place of ruin and death, peopled with 2.5 million visitors per year whose cash, hands, and feet will be the ultimate downfall of the site. Does that make this card upright, or reversed?

"The Arrius Pollio Apartment Complex
owned by Gnaeus Allius Nigidius Maius
FOR RENT from July 1st.
Street Front shops with counter space,
Luxurious second-story apartments,
And a townhouse.
Prospective renters, please make arrangements
with Primus, slave of Gnaeus Allius Nigidius Maius."
—Roman rental notice from Pompeii, 1st century AD

  1. Love the light show on this card. I suppose one being's blessing is often another's burden.

  2. Is that an upside down wand or a Walking Stick aka brown praying mantis? What is the symbolism for a praying mantis?

    1. I don't see a walking stick, but I don't see lots of things :)

    2. You see things with a different perspective, but then from what I have read on your blog you always have. Good for you. Things change so we have to change with them. Can you at least get out of doing housework and dishes? I am guessing not since you were cutting grass the other day. Whatever Life tosses at you just give it a raspberry and keep going.

  3. Reminds of pigeon droppings which erode antique statues. Should we kille the pigeons???

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
