Coloring My World

Daily Draw: Thoth Tarot ~ 9 of Cups

Color plays a part in understanding the decks designed by the Golden Dawn members. The Thoth has had dozens of printings since the first publishing in 1969. Look at the first row here on google images. Mine is scanned from my 'greenie' deck, the one I have in  my hand is from 2006. 2006 has
deep purple background
yellow lotus
golden water
violet cups
red vines.

I'm reminded by this card it isn't much wonder communication is a difficult task and it takes a lot of words and arm waving to get us to the lovely 9 of Cups position.

I also remember in the 8th grade saying as our teacher came in the room, "I feel studious today". I got 3 hacks with a big wooden paddle, in front of class, for whatever he thought I said. I never did find out. Words...can't live with them, can't shoot them.
