last christmas, Beloved gave me two tarot decks. both were unexpected, both were not decks i'd pick up on my own. but both are decks i've come to enjoy, and the one deck - the DruidCraft tarot - has become one of my favorite decks to use to read for myself.
it's difficult to read for myself, i find - i know im blind to me, and sometimes i find more confusion in the cards than clarity. i find trusting in spirit to provide what i need - including answers is actually easier than trying to discern any truth i might find in the tarot.
and yet... the pictures are so pretty, the images so compelling, so... thought-provoking. and so this morning, i said, "why not?"
i drew seven cards completely at random as i shuffled,and this is the order in which they fell. i welcome any insights any Gentle Readers may wish to share, because this is what i think is only the first part of a spread i'll have to meditate on a long time:
the nine of wands
the six of wands
the four of swords.
the first thing i notice is how much the figure in the four of swords reminds me of myself.
and furthermore, the war will end. blessed be.
