Daily Draw May 2nd, 2012
I really like using these two decks together, so I’m doing another daily with them. One thing that bugged me was the pronunciation Ana used for La Hire. She says it is pronounced La Air but that isn’t quite right. Native French speakers say something closer to La Ear-uh. which you can hear at this site.
7 – THE CHARIOT
LA HIRE – JACK OF HEARTS
which carries calm
What struck me was the meditation depicted on this card and also the animals straddling the world or hemisphere, as if they could choose to go anywhere they wanted. Mindfulness meditation is recommended for chronic pain, something always to keep in mind.
La Hire, is not quite a trustworthy fellow. I feel his immaturity and irresponsibility need a firm hand on the reins. Today he reminds me of myself, or perhaps my body, which does have unpredictable ups and downs and is certainly a thief of my life. The Chariot will bring him into line.
We went for a nice walk in the woods, but I feel a terrible sadness since the two dogs we used to walk with are dead now. The one neighbour dog, Montana the black Lab, used to leap in and out of the ponds as we went. Our dogs knew we didn’t like them to do that since the muck at the bottom of the ponds was very sulphuric and sticky, but I miss Montana and her exuberance around water. Our old soul Abby made the walk last year but you used to have to stop and wait for her several times. She loved it though, so peaceful during green-up time. They both missed the coltsfoot this year.
I sit and wait for Chariot insight about it all. I have an embroidery planned for a bag for this deck and its attendant jumbo playing card deck with the hand drawn titles, so I might work on that a bit.
