Lot Of Bull

Daily Draw: Tabula Mundi Tarot ~ Prince of Coins/Discs

Ah. Wheels. Were they a tool of earth shattering effect? Or were they folly, pushing a pox upon us, too  much too soon, all the faster to the fight?

There is a lot of bull in this card. A survival life changer in an agrarian society. I look at this Prince who sees all hears all and I wonder if he would give up the high seat if he could.  If he'd prefer leading the bull rather than be driven by it.

Does the Prince take on the trappings of a virile and courtly presentation by his position, or does the position make the man? I think not, modern representations shows a thug with a wheel is still a thug, in spite of the trappings attendent to the rise.

  1. I believe the knight would give up his seat. Still he feels strongly that he must abide by the rules that placed him in his service.
