Agony

Daily Draw: Art of Life Tarot ~ 3 of Swords

Gauguin's Agony In The Garden led me on a search to see  how others painted the subject. With a pile of sleeping disciples, with a halo in directed light, on his knees, standing, lying down, broad daylight to dark.

I like this version in the 3 of Swords spot, this isn't worrying about things that never happen, he knew what was coming and with those figures life will change unalterably. Better to handle the worst than to prepare for the worst.

  1. I can freak out and project into the future, or I can handle reality as best as I can at the moment. If I choose to spin out, I won't likely do anything constructive or helpful.

  2. There really is no preparing for the worse. As you say, it is just better to handle it when it comes. Preparation is living in the future. I too like this version of the Three of Swords.

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
