Let it flow, let it flow, let it flow

Joie de Vivre Tarot, US Games 2011
Yesterday I drew the Death card, wondering about endings. To be honest I never noticed anything ending, though I was disheartened to see my BMI has risen to 24.5 (teetering on the edge of 'overweight', or as my friend at work says, 'officially fat') which didn't make me happy, but didn't kill my eating of 3 or 4 jaffa cakes. Maybe yesterday was a turning point of some kind, though. I've been working on a particular project, something about the way I live my daily life, or the way I experience my life, and yesterday I had 3 or 4 unexpected positive experiences, which might suggest I'm turning the corner on it.  The Ace of Cups coming after the Death card has meaning for me, in relation to this project. It suggests that I'm heading in the direction I want with it.

Enough with the vague, let's look more closely at this sweet card. A lovely mouse-eared faerie girl in a dress decorated with big red hearts holds a giant clam shell full of water up at shoulder height, allowing it to flow in streams to the pool below. Above her a tiny angel figure holds a big key, and all around her on spirally vines sprouting more red hearts, lovely peacock-like birds perch and nibble from the heart blossoms of the vines. I love the way the mouse-eared girl has headdress of a crescent moon, with wind chimes dangling from it. Listen to the secrets of your heart, it seems to whisper, and love will flow through you.

  1. This seems like a very pretty deck of cards, you never struck me as fat Carla. I've started to put on a few pounds on too!

  2. That last line is just beautiful! I see the birds eating the hearts, and it makes me think of the expression "You can't live on love alone". I think perhaps you can, as love will bring everything else along in it's wake...
