Daily Draw: Thoth Tarot ~ Priestess

Is she hidden, or is she hiding?  Does knowledge breed evil or does evil breed knowledge? Thoth Priestess is a combination of the gods Isis and Artemis. Their knowledge and purpose is translated to a veil rather than enlightenment.

I'm reminded by this card knowledge can be a tricksy thing. It changes who we are and how we perceive ourselves and the world. Like a train wreck, we slow down, turn our heads, drink it in, unfiltered. Our baleen plates and blowholes are broken. Has our  world broken us or have we broken the world?

 "Lasciate ogne speranza, voi ch'intrate", ~ Durante degli Alighieri 1265-1361

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
