Daily Draw: Golden Estensi Tarot ~ 4 of Swords

Sit down and twiddle your thumbs, you aren't going anywhere. This fellow doesn't have a quiver or bow, nor a rope long enough to do anything with, he simply isn't ready yet for what is coming. The fact that he is beginning to gather tools is promising though. It shouldn't be long now.

I'm reminded by a death in the family yesterday that being ready and being prepared really are different things...

"If you're not ready for everything, you're not ready for anything." ~ Paul Auster 1947-

The deck this week is from Lo Scarabeo, Golden Tarot of Renaissance Estensi Tarot, 2004, another reproduction deck based on the 17 remaining cards of the circa 1470 deck which is preserved in the Bibliotheque Nationale of Paris. What appears to be black in the scans is gold, mimicing the original gold leaf and punch stamping on the originals.
