Daily Draw July 3rd, 2012
I did not have a good day yesterday, I seem to be sinking again in spirit and I can’t figure out why. Anyway, today three books came via UPS, and the bird book is absolutely breathtaking. I also received the Judith Bärtschi Lenormand, complete with its German book. I don’t find German as easy to translate as French or Italian but I do love a bit of a challenge. The book is very nicely done with colour reproductions of the cards.
I also received the delightful Blue Dog Rose Tarot by Nakisha Elsje VanderHoeven, and I am almost at the point where I can spell her name without looking. The cards are separated as they come off the sheet, so I had to put them in order which was a bit dicey on the Majors. Batting a thousand for my lack of memory on card order after X, I did manage them all except I mixed up Temperance and the Tower. How shockingly bad of me. I must remember that the Tower comes after the Devil and Temperance before. As you can guess, there are no Roman numerals or numbers on the Majors. I love it though, it’s like a puzzle.
I particularly liked Chained Dog as The Hanged Man—how apt. And for my friend Steve, I knew he’d get a kick out of the blue budgie being the Star, since he just rescued a blue budgie in the garden and called her Ariel. Because of the radiant light, the budgie does look rather angelic.
So that’s my card of the day.
Hope and radiance and the future, with a dash of help and acceptance.
