Out Of Sight?

Daily Draw: Druidcraft Tarot ~ 4 of Cups

In this 4 the cup is actually playing hid and seek. Out of sight out of mind? In others the cup is being handed directly to the figure. In both instances I get the impression the Rider-Waite 4 is going to sit there until someone else does the work for him.

This is one of the reasons I prefer thoth based decks to the Rider based. Here are examples of the thoth based 4 of cups. No victim, no schmo, no sad sack.

But I use both because there is always something to notice, something to share, something to have a companionable conversation over. Gotta love the cards. And there are a lot of days I'm the schmo.

  1. The RWS reminds me of how spoiled 'First-world' people can be. We'd prefer to order everything from Amazon and have it delivered to our doorstep in 2 days. Also reminds me of things like Google Home and Amazon Echo.

    1. I lost my LIME fitbit a couple of weeks ago, so today when I was in Target (buying yet another microwave, gurr) I wandered over to the tech area and the clerks and I went through their inventory, no joy. They both said you can get it anywhere on line... so I said well yes, but I always try local first. I don't think they grasped how precarious our hold on local stores is.

  2. I mentioned to Ellen a few weeks ago when she shared a post using this same deck. I don't really know all that much about the Thoth based decks and how they may differ. Put it on the list to study one day, hopefully sooner than later.

    1. maybe the want will come to you, or not, no biggie. In some instances they are quite the same, although the first Thoth doesn't have people on the minors. I just took a bug once and spent three months working with the five thoth decks I had at the time. Hours a day on a private blog. That was when I brought mother home so it was a good distraction for me.

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
