So, you wouldn't think I'd end up with Cat's Eye Tarot (Debra M Givin, US Games 2011), but I did! On a whim, I selected it as trade for one of the decks I had on offer for free here recently. It arrived in the post the other day, and so I thought I'd try a draw with it. Doesn't seem to matter the deck, tarot is tarot, and the cards that have been stalking me lately turned up (I shuffled them nine times before drawing. Seemed fitting):
Queen of Wands has been stalking me most of 2013, and Temperance has just now turned up (possibly to remind me to look at the ways Queen of Wands is manifesting and make sure they are not out of balance, like doing too much yoga or maintaining too many blogs!) For the last card, I took a peek at the book, and this sentence struck me: 'Do you face challenges with confidence, or do you take a defensive stance?' Well the answer to that is pretty much 'defensive stance' across the board. So I guess the question for me now is, once I've identified the out-of-balance aspects of my recent approach to life, to determine how the imbalance is a result of taking a defensive stance.
So yeah, for the next week, this blog will be a little more cat.
