Daily Draw: Harmonious Tarot ~ 8 of Pents

In many decks this card shows a workman at his bench producing well-crafted items. In this card we have a well dressed woman presenting a finely carved statue on an opulent cushion.

Industry, craftsmanship, and creativity aren't limited to our work and outer life, but also to our inner life. What we do in our free time, what we surround ourselves with, and who we spend our time with are also part and parcel of the 8 of Pents.

I'm reminded by this card of personal choices...clean desk/cluttered desk, 2 or 3 special items or a collection of 100 widgets stuffed in a closet, 1 well-kept auto or a series of broken down jalopies. At the end of the day which costs the least and brings us more joy? Which type of life do I wish to create for myself? If I dropped dead today, what would my desk, my car, my collection say about me? Sloppy, careless, and wasteful or a thoughtful connoisseur?

This week's working deck is the Harmonious Tarot from Lo Scarabeo, based on the artwork of Walter Crane. Opulent, fun and full of joy, certainly an 8 of Pents deck.
