Mamma's Boy

Daily Draw: Margarete Petersen Tarot ~ King of Coins

My first draw from this gorgeous art deck, and I think I'll not be looking at the book any more. It indicated this King (or Father as it is titled on the card) of Coins entire life course is based on unquenchable desire for his mother. ??

I've been thinking about this for an hour, and was very tempted to just put the card back and start fresh. But you know what? Life doesn't work that way, we get what we are dealt and the best way is always to deal with it. Ignoring something we don't want to cope with is a loser's proposition and takes our own power away from us. Not going there.

"We want the facts to fit the preconceptions. When they don't it is easier to ignore the facts than to change the preconceptions." ~ Jessamyn West 1902-1984

The deck this week is the English language/second edition of the Margarete Petersen Tarot, published 2004 by Konigs Furt, beautifully boxed and including a seventy-two page booklet. The cards were painted over a period of twenty-two years in Germany, Bavaria, and Switzerland.
