Naked Rebellion

Daily Draw: Etruscan Tarot ~ 6 of Wands

A slave accompanies a mare to be gifted, a master able to gift both an announcement of status. Ever had to stand up for yourself when naked? Try it sometime. I don't remember what doctor or why but I remember where and when, vividly. I got dressed and went home.

I'm reminded by this card getting dressed and going home isn't an option for a slave. There are many ways to oppress someone, to lord it over someone, manner of dress is one of them.  On the other hand, if he were being sent with clothing it would have been a more powerful statement of wealth.

"Seeing is believing, and if success is to count for anything in the world it must be clothed in the raiment of property. As often as not it isn't the money itself that means anything; it is the use of money as the currency of the soul." ~ Lewis H. Lapham  1935-

  1. Nowadays it is not only clothing which give you status but also gadgets, cars etc. I always have to laugh when a guy wants to show off with his new car and opens the hood for his friends: Everybody is raved about the motor but none of them knows how it actually works :)

    1. Or you are thinking oooo, hotty. Until they get out of the hotty car and turn into just someone ordinary.

  2. That sure isn't a typical six of wands. Success at the cost of another. Too many are judged by first appearances.

  3. I wonder if the oppressed become the worst oppressors or the more merciful of men?

    1. Good question. Depending on character it could go either way.

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from anyone with a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
